Christopher has Asperger Syndrome. He likes dogs and the colour red. He doesn’t like France and the colours brown and yellow. He also likes writing murder mystery novels. Except this one is a true story. About Wellington the dog. About his search for who killed Wellington. About the letters he finds – from his dead mother.
As the book is written in first person, it reflects Christopher’s syndrome well. It leads us into his logical mind, shown in the simple, frank sentences with which he narrates. But it was that excellent story twist, not at all random, but to do with a subject I hardly questioned, that truly made the book alive and special. However, there was a lot of swearing and inappropriate language, but it was the only fault of the book.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
