A River in Darkness and High Fidelity

Welcome to episode 3! We discuss A River in Darkness: One Man’s Escape from North Korea and High Fidelity.

For next month, we are reading A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman and The Time Machine Did It by John Swartzwelder.

Be on the lookout for our bonus episode, Adapted!, where we will discuss the adaptations of the books we have read so far.

Thirteen Reasons Why and Good Omens

On this episode we talked about Thirteen Reasons Why, which we both found problematic. Kate’s big message about this book: If you have been sexually assaulted, suicide is not your only option! You can talk to someone right now: https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/talk-to-someone-now/

On a lighter note, this is the SNL sketch we talked about:

We also talked about Good Omens, and we both really liked it! Even though British humor isn’t big for Kate, she still really enjoyed it.

On the next episode, we are discussing A River in Darkness: One Man’s Escape from North Korea and High Fidelity!

Episode 1: Ready Player One and Yes!: My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleMania

We discuss Yes!: My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleMania by Daniel Bryan and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline on the first full episode of Book Hubbubing!

Yes, Kate says Catch-21, and she meant Catch-22. She is very aware of that.

The books we picked for the next episode are Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.
