    Lying on the Couch, by Irvin D. Yalom.

    Fiction novel of psychiatrists's interaction with theyr patients inside and outside the doctor's office. And theyr lies.

    "...to taste the forbidden fruit of what a therapist might really be thinking during a therapy session."

    The book is a bit dense - there's too much info on the characters. Enough info to get them diagnosed, but, since there are lots of characters, it doesn't get very interesting to get to know each one.


    His newest book, The Schopenhauer Heal, settles that problem by placing everybody inside a group of therapy, making the characters interact with each other, so i recommend this one. It's a very enjoyable novel. Memorable.

    I just read The Wasp Factory. It left me feeling lonely, uncomfortable, dirty, frightened, sickened and disturbed.

    I'm reading "Great Gatsby". An american classic. I have to read it for english class, I wouldn't pick it up for a reading, but I admit, it has something.

    American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer. Damn terrific biography on the life of the famous American physicist, first hailed as a hero for his lead role in the Manhattan Project and then later demonized for it. It's one of the most thorough bios I've read and I can see why the authors snagged a Pulitzer.

    With an endorsement like that, I might have to check it out.

    I'm reading "Death Match", by Lincoln Child. It's about some couples that are found dead, and appearently they had commited double suicide. An there's a former FBI forensic psychologist that has to clear that up.

    It's a pretty interesting thriller, I'm really enjoying it.

    the castle of otranto, in english, forgot the author, coz its part of a collection of gothic novels from different writers.
    its not too hard to understand, for not-native-speakers even if theres alot of older english like thee, thou ,thy, arst n stuff, but the old constructions sound pretty german so its easy for me.
    we may be human, but we're still animals
