Palindrome Check In C

// A palindrome is a string that reads the same both backwards and forwards. Famous examples
// are "Madam I'm Adam" or "Able was I ere I saw Elba". This function checks that a given string
// reads the same backwards and forwards. (requires including stdbool.h)

bool checkPalindrome(char *number) {
    char *begin, *end;
    int x;
    x = strlen(number) - 1;
    begin = &number[0];
    end = &number[x];
    for ( ; x >= 0; --x) {
        if ( *begin++ != *end--) return false;
    return true;
