Extended Essay: O'Donoghue, Haddon, Hosseini

In her excellent Transition Year Extended Essay, which was awarded a Distinction, Ally Boyd Crotty compared Emma Donoghue's Room, Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner, and Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.

She writes:-

My choices of books were mainly based on childhood. I chose this theme because I am interested in books about childhood and I thought I would find it rewarding to study these books in more depth than I have before.This theme made all three of my books interlinked in a great deal of ways even though they all had their own unique stories. The contrast but similarities of the books made it a very broad topic. I never really felt stuck or had any reason to ponder on what I needed to write.
