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!


High-Rise - J.G. Ballard

This got too ugly for me. To the point where I wasn't enjoying myself. I don't mind ugly, but this was a bit much for me. A lot of animal abuse/murder. I can deal, but not when it feels like it's almost every third chapter or so.


And you hate everybody. That's a first for me.


It's very well written, don't get me wrong. In the end, it isn't for me.


I'd still like to read his short stories. Like I said, he does write extremely well.
