The Soft Machine - William S. Burroughs Three stars because I admired what Burroughs was trying to do with his cut-up technique, but ultimately I found the book unreadable. I think the cut-up technique could work on a story level, but on a sentence level it renders nonsense. However, reading the book made me search out more information about Burroughs, his life and his technique, so in that sense I think I really engaged with the book beyond the text itself, so kudos for that, Uncle Bill. I may try again some rainy weekend when I have an ample supply of liquor on hand.
