The Burden of Curiousity:A quote from Curious Incident

After taking his A level maths exam, Christopher tells the reader of his anxiety and his anxiousness to find out about his results. He talks about the differences when you know if the result will turn about to be good or bad but then says that “[he] thinks it is worst if you don’t know whether it is a good thing or a bad thing which is going to happen.” He begins to explore natural curioustiy and how we as humans build things up in our head, be they bad or good, when we do not know the result. This idea is where the saying “curiousity killed the cat” comes from.
