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 193 out of 359 pages.

Mr. Bones: Twenty Stories - Paul Theroux

"Siamese Nights" is a long story, but very well worth the time (it clocked to almost 2 hours on the audiobook). A very different love story with a hint of sinister malice at the end. I loved the final line, and I loved the story.


The next story appears to be shorter. And it's read by my least favorite reader of the bunch (there are a few readers on this one, so I have no clue which one he is). I really hope he tones it way the hell down with the voices. Perhaps if there are no kids in this one, it'll be okay. That's when he really goes for the cheese.
