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!

Stone Mattress: Nine Tales - Margaret Atwood

So far, this collection is fantastic. And I'm really digging the audiobook, even though it has a different reader for each story (one might've read two, I'm not sure).


Loved the first three stories, which are connected. Even though they could be read on their own, they should be read in order ("Alphinland," "Revenant," and "Dark Lady"). All three are excellent, but my favorite right now is the first tale, "Alphinland."


Really hoping the rest of the stories are just as good, if not better.
