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.

  1. 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.
