Literary analysis of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time I think creative people are very different from others. They seem to live on a different planet, in a whole other universe. In his 2003 novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, in which he won the Whitbread book Awards for Best Novel and Book of the year, and the Commonwealth Writer`s Prize For Best First Book, the acclaimed British novelist Mark Haddon give us insights into the world told through the perspective of a gifted but socially awkward fifteen year old boy. The story takes place in the town of Swindon, England. Christopher Boone, the narrator of this revelatory novel, loves maths, eats red-but not yellow or brown foods and screams when touched.
The family was forced to take Stanislovas out of school and get him a job at the lard machine. The factory was not fit for a kid, the boy witnessed traumatizing events and began to fear the walk to work (Sinclair 75). Teta Elzbieta’s two sons, Nikalojus and Vilimas, and Kotrina are sent out to sell newspapers and earn extra income to support the family. The children are taken advantage of by a man claiming to know of a newspaper store, but he took their money and never came back (Sinclair 127.

After adjusting his glasses, he questions Wynter. “Well then could you shed some light on the missing revenue in this business? Revenue most definitely flowed through this company however it’s not all accounted for.” Wynter instantly responds to the agents questions, like a child would respond to their parent’s question. “Well I hate entering electronic payments because I’m a paper person, so since there wasn’t a physical cheque I didn’t enter it into the book…but the money’s there.” “You’re not allowed to do that.” said the agent, confused at what Wynter had just said. “I think I am, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.” she laughs at her response; however, it doesn’t last long as the Agent’s stern face is an indication that she should treat this more seriously.
Hughes was one of the few kids who really wanted to see Jesus, but ended up lying to not keep his aunt and other adults waiting. The worse thing the pressure brought to Hughes was his loss of faith. He no longer could believe in Jesus, and he lost that faith while making other people happy that he had been “saved.” Orwell doesn't buy what society believes about beggars. Beggars have to go through a lot on the streets, to still be detested by society. Society doesn't care what beggars have to go through, they only care about who has a lot of money.
Another instance of situational irony is when “Red Chief” begins to speak with the kidnappers. One would expect that a child who has been kidnapped would be fearful, or want to go home to see their family. However, “Red Chief” does not behave as expected, instead he doesn’t want to leave and he is having the time of his life. He was treating the kidnappers like they were apart of his family and asking them about all the questions he
After Hassan had being raped by Assef and his friends, Amir had not seen him for weeks.

Amir couldn't be around Hassan without getting headaches and feeling guilty. As Amir and Baba were in the garden Amir brought up a topic that Baba had never thought or wanted to, he asked “if he had ever thought about getting new servants?” Baba was in disgust when he heard those words come out of Amir’s mouth.
He imagines what he would have done to the person who stole them by “going down to the crooks room and [saying] Okay. How ‘bout handing over those gloves”(Salinger 88)? He further explains that the kid would act innocent until Holden scares him into giving him the gloves. Holden does not have the confidence or boldness to confront the person who stole his gloves, no matter how mad he is. Holden fantasizes about this encounter because he, like Jack, is too timid to stand up for himself or talk to other people and therefore turns to fantasy to be the person he wants to
