I read 'choke' a while back and it was disturbing. Palahniuk manages to suck the reader in and you cant stop reading, its like watching a car crash and wanting to examine every second of the crash.

i just finished reading the russian master by anton chekhov. awesome short storys on Russian struggles and intimacys its awesome!!!!!

yeah it seems you can still be a high functioning member of society and have aspergers. The movie I was talking about is 'mozart and the whale' and its about a man with aspergers who sets up a self help group for aspergers people.

Yeah from what I've read it seems a lot of artistic types throughout history may have had some spectrum of it - Da Vinci, John Lennon, Thomas Edison, Einstien, Beethoven. Anyone who seems to be able to shut out the world and totally focus and be absorbed by a skill or art....

aspergers is interesting. Whats the movie with josh hartnett in it that is about autism?

denise scott (australian comedians) autobiography

wow the third part of 'on the road' is really sad at the start. He goes back to see dean and dean is an absolute mess.

The Tempest is really good.

It isn't SO bad here. I guess it just depends where you are.

Still reading Huckleberry Finn but now I'm also re-reading Paper Towns by John Green mainly because I can't help it. It's really good.
