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 34 out of 160 pages.

Post Office - Charles Bukowski

One of the funniest books I've read in a while. This one's not for everybody. Bukowski's fictional alter-ego does and says some pretty horrific stuff--yet I find myself laughing out loud a bunch. Bukowski's world is populated with crazy and colorful characters.


This is not a story about redemption. Nor do I expect to see a lot of growth in the character. And you know what? I'm okay with that. That was Bukowski's style, and very few could get away with that.
