Book Vs. Movie is the podcast that ponders the question: "Which was better...the book or the movie?" We spoil away the details, uncover the plot points, discuss casting choices and shower with praise (or pummel with snark) as we see fit. Hosts are Margo P. (She's Nacho Mama's Blog) and Margo D. (Creator of Brooklyn Fit Chick.com) and we are not afraid to tell it like it is!

    Book Vs Movie: Steve Harvey's "Think Like a Man"

    Book Vs Movie: Steve Harvey's "Think Like a Man"

    Hey BVMers! The Margos are trying their first self-help book, Steve Harvey’s Think Like a Lady. Act Like a Man (2009) along with our special guest this week--Kristen Meinzer of the By the Book podcast. Let’s just say this, for self-identifying feminists --this book was a challenge to get through.

    Book Vs Movie "Beloved" (Toni Morrison & Oprah Winfrey)

    Book Vs Movie "Beloved" (Toni Morrison & Oprah Winfrey)

    It’s African American History Month and the Margos are eager to start with Toni Morrison’s 1987 widely-acclaimed novel Beloved which was turned into a movie with the help of Oprah Winfrey in 1998. The book won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction but the movie seems to have faded from memory. We try to figure out why that is the case.

    Book Vs Movie "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (Replay)

    Book Vs Movie "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (Replay)

    We needed a break here from the intense and decided to dip back into the YA novel waters with the lovely first installment (of five!) of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants from author Ann Brashares and what a delight it is!
    In this episode, the Margos talk about the main plot points in the book with the characters of Lena Kaligaris, Tibby Rollins, Bridget Creeland and Carmen Lowell and their unique friendship. It’s such a sweet, loving tale--we can’t stop gushing about it!

    Book Vs Movie "Shrek"

    Book Vs Movie "Shrek"

    Did you not know that Shrek was a book first? Well, it certainly was and the Margos are so excited to talk about the interesting beginnings of the 1990 children’s book by author/illustrator William Steig. The movie, directed by Andrew Adamson, (we talked a bit about him in our "Chronicles of Narnia" episode) stars Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and John Lithgow became a smash and produced two sequels.

    Book Vs Movie "The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society" (Replay)

    Book Vs Movie "The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society" (Replay)

    Are you ready for a little 1940s weepy? The Margos sure are as they talk about the novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society that was started by Mary Ann Shaffer who brought on her niece Annie Barrows to help her finish when she became ill. Shaffer spent some time fogged in at the airport on the island of Guernsey which is located by the English Channel.

    Book Vs Movie: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

    Book Vs Movie: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

    The Margos travel to Narnia and back to bring you the story about fascinating author C.S. Lewis and his classic children’s tales that make up The Chronicles of Narnia. Lewis, an Irishman who attended schools in England, went from being an avowed atheist to a proponent of Christianity and he used his stories based on Pevensie children as the basis of having people understanding the power of God.

Love the premise

I do love this podcast. The premise is excellent with a very wide range of books chosen. However, the sound quality is ATROCIOUS! This podcast has been going for years and I can’t understand why the sound is still so bad. Voices go robotic, and the screechy sound quality is like nails on a chalkboard. I really hope the quality improves so I can enjoy again. I can’t even listen most times.
