I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them.
Christopher Boone is extremely intelligent and logical, but certain everyday interactions leave him upset and confused. When the neighbor’s dog is killed one night, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery. In attempting to learn the truth about the dog’s death, Christopher learns about secrets previously unknown in his own life. Mark Haddon’s 2003 challenged novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a story of truth, lies loss, forgiveness, and family.
