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 66 out of 400 pages.

Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World - Haruki Murakami, Alfred Birnbaum

This is wonderfully strange and bizarre. Exactly what I was expecting from Murakami. As much as I loved his latest novel (and it's fantastic), it really didn't have magical realism or alternate realities, other than a few dream sequences and random visions.


I'm enjoying this strange trip. Only downside is I have no idea how I'll be able to write a review that'll make sense when I'm finished.
