      The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is such a fantastic book! This was actually a reread for me and it lived up to my memory of it, which is such a rare occurrence! I love the fresh narrative voice and all the little science/math bits scattered about. 😀

      And hooray for LotR! 😉
