I finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time last night. The book is written from the perspective of the main character, who is.. autistic, I think. I'm not sure what I can even say about it. It made me feel ways about stuff.

Then, I moved on to The Confusion. Yeah, I went crawling back. After finally smashing my head into the end of this *tome* that was Quicksilver last year, I was done with Neal Stephenson. But 15 pages into the sequel, and I'm starting to remember why I bought all his other books, and how I've reread Cryptonomicon almost half as many times as I've reread The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy. I'll let you know if it was a good decision in another thousand pages :P

Yeah. what's the middle one in the trilogy called?

I'm up to the last "book" in that one.

Tough going after the 2nd book, I tell you.

I realized last night that the Eliza-centered stories are what I don't like about this series. (IIRC, that's what you're on now.) They're all of the form: introduce 10 members of European nobility, then say something clever, okay that took 50 pages, now here's a few words about natural philosophy or pirates or whatever.
