    Here is a strange little book, a tale of Jim, a man who takes a vacation trip with his wife and two kids, only to end up stuck in a mysterious patch of soft ground in the middle of a jungle The story mostly happens in Jim s thoughts, especially those regarding his deteriorating relationship with his wife The Soft Ground is told with a lot of humor it has been described as a satire, which I guess is correct I like many of the descriptions, such as the ecstatic and detailed way Jim sees a tree he is preparing to cut down in the jungle The plot of this short book feels artificial, incidental to the main character s perspective on his life and current situation This independently published work also has a number of minor typos it is in need of another proofreading scrub.

    The Soft GroundQuick read with no fluff after the first couple pages about time Once that concept is established the humor really kicks in, and the pace keeps moving until the unexpected climax I like the way the protagonist anti hero s thoughts drift seamlessly back and forth between huge concepts like time, justice, etc and the real world events that drive the plot Although very dark and superficially misogynist, this book follows the conventions of traditional satire, providing an ironic conclusion and closure Reminds me of works like The Lottery or Aldous Huxley s books of which I am a great fan Short 60 pages and compelling enough to finish in one sitting.

    I didn t like this book at all I finished it because I thought it would get better, but alas, it did not.It was dull, boring and a totally self absorbed story by the self centered non hero of the book.
