Through a close study of the narrative structure, relationships and detective fiction the reader will gain a better understanding of the distinctive elements of this novel. In the book “Curious” Mark Haddon has used an interesting narrative structure to convey the effects of Christopher Boone as the distinctive narrator. A distinctive feature we see in “Curious” is the use of Narrative Digressions. Haddon has structured this novel so that about every second chapter we see a Narrative digression which throws the story into pause and in these narrative digressions he goes into unneeded subjects such as Christopher listing all of his behavioural problems Christopher says “I used to think mother and father would get divorced” this digression had followed Ed Boone stating that he wanted to leave Swindon and live somewhere else. Christopher stating all these behavioural problems shows us his thought pattern.

The overnight shift at the front desk of Concord’s Colonial Inn is a lot like most small inns. After the last guest is checked in, restaurants and bars closed, there’s paperwork, reports and printing out bills for those checking out in the morning to keep you busy during those hazy hours of sleeplessness. One evening, the quiet of the lobby was interrupted by a woman, whose attire made it fairly obvious that she had dressed in a hurry, running wild-eyed into the room. She conveyed in no uncertain terms that her room was haunted, that she would not be spending the night anyplace in the inn, and that someone was going to have to go up to her room and pack her bags, as she was not going back under any circumstances. The staff at the Colonial
Holden’s Analysis The transcript that I chose was from a book called “A Catcher In The Rye”. I chose the section in the book where the star of the book Holden, just got a prostitute and she is entering his hotel room. He starts to back down and make excuses not to have to sleep with her. I chose this section because so far in the book this is the only section in the book that has caught my attention because it’s so shocking. During the script Holden’s tone very nervous.
They would have to work a certain distance so and turn around showing no mercy to the opponent they were up against. In another poem called in Paris with you it mentions and remain here in this sleazy…old hotel room…doing this and that to what and whom… this is referring back to George as he has undertaken the task of looking after Lennie. So this is like a full time parent job preventing George from having a normal quality of life, whilst the other go and visit the local brothel also known as a ‘whorehouse’. The other ranch workers go there as they have nothing else better to do so they go to see women flaunt and throw themselves at men to entertain them.
The Hound of The Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is a suspenseful and smart mystery novel, staged in England. Similar to many other well written novels, The Hound of The Baskervilles constantly twists the plot by involving new characters and scenarios which keeps the reader focused. The reintroduction of Holmes about two-thirds of the way through the book rejuvenates the reader’s want to read. Many other Sherlock Holmes plots are simplified to two components: a setup for the mystery and a detailed description of Holmes using his highly-gifted detective powers to determine the culprit. The stories never really evolve into a complete mystery because Holmes is too brilliant for the reader’s good.
