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!

Reading progress update: I've read 143 out of 359 pages.

Mr. Bones: Twenty Stories - Paul Theroux

Favorite stories so far:


Minor Watt

Our Raccoon Year

Mrs. Everest

Rip It Up


There hasn't been a bad story, but those are my favorites right now. I'm sure the list will grow as I dig in deeper.


One of the readers for the audiobook is a little too over-the-top when he does voices. While I appreciate the hell out of him for trying his damnedest to have all of the characters sound different, it comes off as cartoonish at times.
