I enjoyed this book. As a parent, I know how hard it can be to be patient with the tykes and do all the right things. I can't even imagine what it must be like to raise an Autistic child. I know several families with Autistic kids and I must say, those parents are my heroes.

The parents in Dog in the Night-time felt real to me. They weren't perfect, and sometimes were a bit selfish, but they really tried.

I also enjoyed hearing the story from Christopher's perspective. I like seeing how different he sees the world. I'm also a bit of a math fan, so I liked all the random puzzles.

The only thing for me that fell short was the ending. It sort of just ended. But in a way, it's a pretty honest ending. Sometimes, tiny changes can be huge improvements.
