Christopher John Francis Boone
As someone with Asperger’s syndrome, I often find it difficult to read social cues and understand other people’s emotions. But I love math and solving puzzles, and I have an incredibly logical mind that helps me navigate the world in a unique way. When I set out to solve the mystery of who killed Wellington, my neighbor’s dog, I found that my condition was both a hindrance and a gift. It allowed me to approach the investigation with a level of detachment and attention to detail that others may not have, but it also made it challenging for me to communicate with the people involved. Nonetheless, my determination to uncover the truth kept me going, and my journey ultimately helped me better understand myself and others.
