What I’m Reading Now – The Machine Stops

I finished Tim Winton’s The Shepherd’s Hut last night. The dialogue took some getting used to, but the main character Jax and his story kept me turning the pages and wondering how it was all going to play out. Jax’s storyline is disturbing in a multi-layered way which explanation would give away plot so I’m not going to do that. It’s not my favourite Winton story, but it’s well worth the read. If you’re not already a fan, I’d recommend you start with one of his other books like The Riders, Cloudstreet, Dirt Music or even his short stories in a collection called The Turning. I’ll post the links below to those in case you want to check them out (except for The Turning which is not in a Kindle format) :

I’m reading The Machine Stops by E. M. Forster now. If you want to have a look here’s the link for a Preview:
