The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Chapter 13

By Mark Haddon

Chapter 13

  • Here we get another step back into the mind of the narrator. Christopher tells us that this book won't include any jokes because he doesn't understand them.
  • He particularly dislikes puns and sentences with multiple meanings because it makes him feel like a lot of people are all talking at once. Sounds like Shmoop's family dinners.
