    Episode 10 - Dances and Dreams on Diamond Street

    Episode 10 - Dances and Dreams on Diamond Street

    Episode 10 - The Finale!! This months book is Dances and Dreams on Diamond Street written by Craig Revel Horwood. This is the book that started off the whole podcast project. One cold dark wintery evening whilst stood in Sainsburys I read the blurb to this book and realised that 'holy shit! There must be thousands of books written by celebrities that are bat shit crazy!!' and here we are. 10 Episodes later and 10 terrible books read and series 1 has drawn to a close. We hope to come back with a series 2 but in the meantime will be doing one off specials.

    We hope you enjoy this final episode!

    Episode 9 -Shopgirl

    Episode 9 -Shopgirl

    Hello!! On this months episode we discuss the novel Shopgirl written by Steve Martin. I (Adam) was hesistant to read this book for several reasons. Firstly, Steve Martin is a childhood hero of mine I struggled to believed he would write a bad book. Secondly, as Steve Martin is an accomplished author, playwrite, actor and musician I thought this book would be too good and therefore would be a funny one for us a review and there myself and Helen would have to do some actual work and be proper reviewers of books. Enjoy!!

    Episode 8 - Viking

    Wenches on benches! It is time for this month's podcast episode! 



    This month's epsiode is Viking written by Fabio. We discuss the rampant sexism and sex scenes. As well as the odd time travel element to this novel that seemingly has little to no pay off except for Fabio taking credit for introducing ancient Vikings to the concept of a chimney. We take a look at the personal life of Fabio as well as discuss the time he killed a Goose with his face and when he released an album of strange love ballards. Enjoy!
