I highly recommend 'English Passengers' by Matthew Kneale. Best book I've read in years.

Right now I'm reading 'Can You Forgive Her?' by Anthony Trollope, wriiten in 1860's London. I'm fascinated by all the rules of society in this book - I would have failed utterly as an aspie in Victorian England.

Beyond Good and Evil by Nietzsche (Translation by Walter Kaufmann)

After this, I plan to read The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Heinlein. Something I've put off for far too long.

Play It As It Lays by Joan Didion - extremely well written, didn't like it.
A House For Mr. Biswas - also well written, too long (it's not the 600 pages, it's how it feels too long)
The Girl With The Curious Hair - by John Foster Wallace - I get high on his writing!

I'm reading Mozart and the Whale, and it is so touching...I feel like crying...Actually I'm shedding tears every page...Anybody reading this book? I think it's really good... :)

I'm reading the perks of being a wallflower. I think the main character has aspergers. :?

The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks. It's the third time I've read it (over about 12 years)

This is amazing. I just finished "A House For Mr. Biswas" which takes place in impoverished Trinidad. It was kind of depressing so for my next book I picked Graham Greene, because he's always a good read. This particular book is "The Heart of the Matter" and as I started reading, I saw that this book also takes place in impoverished Trinidad. What are the odds? I suppose if I picked up Dickens that would be about impoverished Trinidad too. 8O

Wow...interesting...what a coincidence!

I'm still reading Mozart and the Whale...I'm half way through, and I have to admit the book is both very touching and emotionally intense...I am seeing two remarkable individuals living their lives...It is beautiful and heartbreaking and...just...something that I cannot grasp with a few words...
