Summary

Christopher John Francis Boone lives in Swindon together with his father. He is 15 years 3 moths and 3 days old and he is autism. His teacher Siobhan gives him clear advances and helps him for example to understand human emotions. Christopher’s father runs up a business and in this job he repairs heating maintenance and boilers. He takes care about Christopher, cooks for him and looks after him and he really loves him.

To show Christopher his love he always spread his fingers in a fan and Christopher does the same because he doesn’t want to be touched. Christopher always had a better relationship to his father than to his mother. He was more sensible with Christopher and had more passion. Christopher’s mum died two years ago of a heart attack. This is what his father has told him when she was gone one day.

Mrs. Shears – the neighbour – helped them trough this difficult time. At the same time she got divorced. One day Christopher found her dog Wellington dead in her garden. The woman thought that he had killed her dog and called the police. They took him to prison. He told them that he did not kill the dog, so his father picked him up and took him home. Christopher decided to find the murderer of the dog.

Siobhan told him at school that he could write a book about finding the murderer of the dog and so he decided to write it.

At home he went back to Mrs. Shear’s house to tell her that he didn’t kill the dog and that he will find out who had killed him. He went into her shed to see if the fork was in there. She told him to go home and so he went off.

The next day he asked his neighbours if they had seen something but he did not find out anything. For him this was a very difficult challenge talking to people he does not know but he managed it. He always has a Swiss Army Knife with him so he felt safe. Christopher thought that Mr. Shears had killed Wellington – the man who was married with Mrs. Shears. When he came home father got a call from Mrs.

Shears. He told Christopher that he should promise to keep his nose out of other people’s business and he promised but his father did not give him exactly advices what he is not allowed to do and so he kept on searching for the murderer. He also was motivated because it was a Super Good Day and that mean, that he has seen 5 red cars in a row. 4 red cars in a row would mean a Good Day, 3 red cars a Quite Good Day and 4 yellow cars in a row would mean a Black Day because Christopher .....[read full text]

The policeman wanted to leave the train with Christopher at the next station but Christopher hid in the shelf and the policeman couldn’t find him anymore. Suddenly he was gone. He hid in the shelf till the train arrived at the last station.

Then he went out and walked in the direction the train came from. He imagined a red line and followed it. At the information a lady told him that he is in London and she showed him where the tube was he had to take to get to his mother. A woman told him that a policeman is looking for him and he should wait here but he escaped. At the underground station he bought a ticket to Willesden Green.

Then he found out which tube he should take but he didn’t enter because there were too many people around.

He sat down, closed his eyes and did not open them for five hours. Then he was very hungry and thirty. Toby was gone and when there were just three people in the station he started looking for him. He saw him in the lower – down but he went off when Christopher came down. A man shouted and said that he should come up because it is too dangerous. In the last minute Christopher grabbed Toby and the man saved him when the train came.

Later he went on one train and he went out at the right station. He asked a man in a shop where the address his mother lived was. He had to buy a map in the shop and he followed it till he reached the street of his mother.

He hid behind a bush because no one opened the door. Suddenly mother and Mr. Shears came home and they were very surprised to see Christopher. He told his mother the whole story:

That father said that she had died, that he had killed Wellington and how he travelled the long way on his own. After Christopher had a bath a policeman arrived. He wanted to take Christopher back to his father but when he found out that Christopher wants to live with his mother he went off. A few hours later father came and wanted to get Christopher back. .....

Autism


Autism is a dramatic developmental disorder of the brain. People who are autistic cannot process the information and the perception. Optical, acoustical and tactile stimuli cannot get filed in. For this people it is hard to do social interactions and communication. The strengths are the intelligence, memory, attention and perception

There are two different forms of Autism:

  • Kanner-Syndrom

  • Asperger- Syndrom

If children have autism it is a flaw of social interactions and it can happen that the children are cutting themselves off of their environment. Often there is a disturbance in the verbal development. The children cannot build social contacts and their fantasy is hard affected. Autism has less to do with intelligence but at the main part of people with autism you can see that their intelligence is not completely developed.

The Asperger-Syndrom is often diagnosed when you are an adult. It is an annoyance of people’s social life. Sometimes people with the Asperger-Syndrom have got strange interests but their intelligence is in the average.

Christopher is a very intelligent boy with special abilities. He knows all prim numbers up to 7.057 and all countries of the world and their capitals. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched and he detests the colours yellow and brown. Every day interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. He lives on patterns, rules and a diagram kept in his pocket.

Christopher just understands realistic things for example if somebody says: “What would your mother say, if she was here?” He doesn’t understand this because his mother isn’t here and that’s a fact. He finds that people are confusing, because they are often use metaphors when they talk. He also doesn’t like wordplays or jokes, because he thinks that these things are illogical for him.

Christopher doesn’t like new places because he can remember everything that he sees so it is very exhausting for him to handle with all this impressions and information. For example in scenery he knows how many cows there are and what colour they have with only one look. His brain is working like a map. When he closes his eyes he can see exactly maps or pictures from a place.

Christopher is a math genius and he really loves to solve math problems. Christopher always tells the truth and never tells a lie, only white lies. A white lie is where you tell the truth but you do not tell all of the truth.

Christopher always likes to know which time it is.


Some other of his behavioural Problems:

  • Not talking to people for a long time (once he didn’t talk to anyone for 5 weeks)

  • Screaming when he is angry or confused

  • Not liking being in really small places with other people

  • Smashing things when he is angry or confused

  • Groaning (stöhnen, ächzen)

  • Refusing to use his toothbrush if anyone else has touched it

  • Not eating food if different sorts of food are touching each other

  • Not noticing that .....
