The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Chapter 113

By Mark Haddon

Chapter 113

  • Christopher has a photographic memory and he tells us now what that's like. For one thing, it allows him to recall pretty vivid memories of his mother.
  • He also uses his photographic memory when he meets someone, to figure out if he's met them before.
  • And one last thing: it helps him remember how to act in certain situations, recalling how he acted in the past. Makes sense to us.
  • He compares these images in his mind to what the rest of us might call "imagination."
