Just finished Mark Haddon's novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night.

The 217 page novel is about the world of an autistic English teenager named Christopher adept at math and intensely logical but unable to express emotion or understand humor. I found the tale riveting, and the last half of the book from its climax through the falling action of his journey to London to find his mother reinforces how scary modern life is.

A quick read, with some cool math/logic puzzles inside to boot. :D The chapters are even numbered by prime #'s (2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23...)
