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 100 out of 244 pages.

After Dark - Jay Rubin, Haruki Murakami

I was worried at first when it came to reading two different Murakami books at the same time (I'm reading this one; listening to the other), thinking I'd get the two mixed up. Turns out I picked the right two ones to experience at the same time, because they are completely different. The other one I'm listening to is like a crazy, trippy dream where you're not exactly sure what is real. With this one, even though there have been some elements of magical realism, seems a bit more straight forward and has a darker tone--at least for the time being. I'm loving After Dark.
