Opinions please - curious incident of the dog in the night time

Hi, I am interested in people's opinions of the book "A curious incident of a dog in the night time" which I have just finished reading. 

I found it very powerful but I wonder would many people with Aspergers?/ Autism relate to the character in this book?

I ask from the perspective of someone who is still trying to figure out if the Aspergers diagnosis fits for me. To me while he makes sense to me and I can relate to parts of it, it feels far more pronounced than I am. Wondered on the opinion of other people who are on the spectrum, have you read it? Can you relate? Any other points?

  • I can’t relate any any fiction whatsoever, ever. Never have. I can’t read fiction at all. Made up story? Yuk 

    That’s was part of my diagnoses too. They ask you to mae up a fake story by looking at pictures. It’s sinply hideous. 

    I’ve never ever read a story - not once in 46 years.
