Gender affects the plot and character development throughout a novel in many more ways than the reader might initially believe. In The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon, the main characters’ genders are very important to the entire plot. First, Christopher’s mother was not portrayed as being traditionally motherly. Also, Christopher’s father made some bad decisions based on how his gender was portrayed. Finally, strangers that Christopher encountered were also directly associated with traditional gender roles.
