Many things reoccur in the novel but one aspect that

From the book, Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time , the way 15-year-old boy with autism comes up with a solution to solve the mystery of who killed his neighbor’s dog. Moreover, the book was written by a person who was playacting to be autistic (Kim, et al. pg 118). It is precisely perplexing that people with autism often sham to be normal, thus hiding their abnormality. In this light , I believe that Haddon’s story is one that perpetuates stereotypes about autism.
In the novel, The Road, the boy’s character is a sign of hope, which the father tells him throughout the novel, that he is carrying the fire. The way the father views the boy is almost like if he was angel sent from heaven. The boy is everything to the father and would not let him die. This shows that the father only lives for the boy and no one else ever since his wife committed suicide for her selfish ways. The wife thought she knew if she would stay alive eventually they would all get killed or get eaten.

Asperger’s syndrome is a disorder that prevents one from developing healthy social and communication skills. In the mystery novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, written by Mark Haddon, the main character, Christopher John Francis Booth, suffers from Asperger’s syndrome.

It focuses more on his “murder mystery”, which is solving who killed his neighbor, Eileen Shears’, dog named Wellington.
c) I can empathise with Walt McCandless, Chris McCandless’s father. “....I spent a lot of time with Chris, perhaps more than with any of my other kids. I really liked his company even though he frustrated us so often.” (Krakauer, 104) Chris and his father did not truly get along very well as Chris got older, since their personalities were so stubborn, they would fight a lot. Walt loved Chris but rarely showed it, which made Chris have a certain hate towards his father. I empathise with Walt because his son died while they were on bad terms, although he knew Chris loved him, Walt had no time to show Chris how much he loved him.
“Stability is Possible” In The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon, Christopher John Francis Boone is introduced as a character with Asperger’s.

When a situation is difficult, Ed and Judy both react in a way that creates dysfunctional relationships with their son. When Christopher finds out that his father was actually the one who had killed Wellington, the trust he puts in Ed is truly
Christopher does, he experiences a lot which changes he attitude towards people. Lennie is mentally retarded, which can be seen in his actions; he loves to pet soft things and is very faithful to George, ‘I do leave it all for you’. Christopher is also very faithful towards his father until he discovers that his father lied to him about his mother dying. They are both very curious as you can read in the table above. You could say that Christopher is more curious than Lennie, because Christopher wanted to investigate who killed Wellington even though his father told him not to.
