The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-TimeThe Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon has to be one of my all-time favourite books. I understand that it was conceived to be a young adult book. The tale of the young man who investigates the death of his dog is fascinating.
Also the style of the narration style is great with all its emotional detachment. It’s worth reading Born on a Blue Day a memoir by Daniel Tammet on his life with Asperger’s Syndrome.
All the little details make reading this book worthwhile, the prime numbers as chapter numbers. The elaborate detail of all things such what food needs to be on the plate and what cannot touch what.
I may even read it again it was so interesting and amusing, full marks for this one.

Is there no end to the mobile/cell phone?

It’s unseemly, to say the least, to be on your cell during a funeral. But there are folks who do it, as well as take calls during other inappropriate times, including intimate moments or while inside a place of worship.

See the whole story by following the link below they also feature a nice little graphic to go with it

Where are the Sheep

Sheep

Travelling in New Zealand over the last week or so I have been struck by the lack of SHEEP. This is my first visit here and I have grown up in Australia with a steady diet of NZ sheep jokes. The jokes might more aptly be applied to Kiwis and cows which seem to greatly outnumber the sheep. So where are they? Where have all the sheep gone? Have they like many Kiwis headed to Australia???
