The curious incident

There were two chapters I absolutely loved in this book:
On death (chapter 61)
and on life (chapter 199)

(you should be able to read those excerpts online thanks to amazon)

By chance I read this book on a recent plane flight (it's the only fiction i have read in probably a year). These 2 chapters didn't strike me as spectacular. To me they re-hashed the purely scientific view of the world/universe, which I have heard over and over in arguments and honestly think are flawed.

overall i liked the book because of how different it was. rather than try to draw out emotional attachments to the characters, it forces you to experience the detached, 1 dimensional life that christopher leads. thought the book was pretty good, not great.
