Some very interesting titles there.

Mating In Captivity doesn't have a rating.

I saw the film Choke. I wanted to like it more but it was a bit disjointed and messy.

I didn't rate Mating in Captivity because it was a self-help book - and it sort of felt wrong too. I haven't seen Choke - and not sure I would want to...... but quirky author!
