Daily Prompt: Second Time Around

Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?

I have written a previous blog about a book I read a bunch of times but today I’ll write about another one. The Curious Incident of the Dog at the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.

The book was given to as a gift and it was somewhere during my exams. I started the book almost immediately and just like that the book captivated me. I’m not sure what it was, maybe the fact that I was sneaking and reading it, but I couldn’t put the book down. I finished it in 2 days.

I read it again later when my friend was also reading so that we could discuss it. It was the second time around that I realized why I liked the book. It was the innocent way it was written. I had never read a book written from a child’s point of view let alone one written in the point of view of a mentally challenged boy. It was this innocence and the fact it portrayed the fears of a challenged boy. It was a sweet and beautiful story. Also it was a detective book (one of my favourite genres).

So to anyone who hasn’t read this book read it. I am definitely sure you’ll like it. So till next time….cheers. 😀
