Choke by Chuck Palahniuk. The Author is the same guy who wrote Fight Club which adapted into motion picture in 1999 with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton as the cast. This year, Choke also adapted into motion picture directed by Clark Gregg, starring Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston.

The story is about Victor Mancini, a medical-school dropout. Needing to pay elder care for his mother. Victor has devised an ingenious scam : he pretends to choke on pieces of food while dining in upscale restaurants. He then allows himself to be “saved” by fellow patrons who, feeling responsible for Victor’s life, go on to send checks to support him. When he’s not pulling this stunt, Victor cruises sexual addiction recovery workshops for action, visit his addled mom, and spends his days working at a colonial theme park.

Quite interesting, right?! I haven’t finished read it yet though, hopefully I can manage to finish it before I watch the movie. Here’s the movie trailer :

Cheers!
