Michael's Book Babble

I'm an indie author and a scribbler of inane babble. I talk about books I've read/liked. Or at least, that's the plan.


Most of the reviews will be considered "mini-reviews." Usually, it's mostly my reaction to what I've been reading. There are people who are far better at doing full and helpful reviews. But I still have fun doing them, and hope you enjoy them!

Come back, Will Patton! Come back!

I am very psyched about Stephen King's new release, Revival.


Sadly, I'm not as psyched for the audiobook, which is going to be read by David Morse. I was beyond bummed when I found out Will Patton wouldn't be doing the reading, as he's one of my new favorite readers and I've stated that I think he should be the designated reader for all future King releases.


But, I thought I'd give it a chance.


An excerpt has been released, along with an audio excerpt.


Color me unimpressed when it comes to the audio. I had a very hard time telling the difference between narration and dialogue, which is crucial when it comes to audiobooks.


I'm biased, I admit, because I've become a Will Patton fanboy. So there's a very good chance I'm not really giving it a fair shake. *shrugs*
