Review: Bleeding Out by Jes Battis

Bleeding Out (OSI, #5)Bleed­ing Out by Jes Bat­tis

My rat­ing: 2 of 5 stars

Woof, I made it. I wasn’t sure that I would, as this novel started out nor­mally and devolved into a stream-​​of-​​consciousness mess. I was seri­ously moti­vated to keep going, though, because I read the rest of the series and this is the last book in it.

So I pushed on through, got to a bit of light in the tun­nel, and then there was more muck. Really, Mr. Bat­tis — this is a pop­u­lar work! Or did you just feel like, “Hey, this is the end of my con­tract, I can do what­ever I want…” That’s the feel­ing I got, hon­estly. It doesn’t moti­vate me to pick up what­ever Bat­tis pub­lishes in the future.

    I hate it when any artist does that. Some­thing like that is what lit­tle chil­dren do in first grade when they get to the end of their assign­ment: Be as sloppy and hur­ried as pos­si­ble, so they can be done with their work and go out and play! I think I know of some movies like that, where the writ­ers and the actors just wanted to get done with it and then bury it in a box of lead out in the desert.

    Con­grat­u­la­tions for fin­ish­ing the book, though. Even though it seems that the author was a lazy ass.
