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 42 out of 188 pages.

Pastoralia - George Saunders

In honor of it being Short Story Month, I decided it was the perfect time to pick up another collection from George Saunders.


And so far, this is freakin' awesome. Very funny and dark, sad and wonderfully bizarre. I'm only on the first story (which I think is actually a novella), and right now I'm having an awfully hard time putting it down.
