The Poppy War Episode 2: Noob’s Book Club

Only two episodes this week. I tried to do three, but the notes part of it just takes so long. I think what I might do going forward is just read more chapters. That way, even thought I’m only doing two episodes, I’m covering more of the book in each episode. So, The Poppy War episode 2 might be the last one that contains only two chapters. I’m thinking about bumping it up to 4 for the next one. Stay tuned.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think. What did I do right? What can be improved? I want to make this work and take constructive criticism well. With no additional delay, download and listen to The Poppy War Episode 2. I can’t wait to hear what you think.

The Schedule (for the rest of the year, pending changes if necessary):

  • “Jurassic Park” – Finished
  • “The Poppy War” – July
  • “Dragons of Destiny” – August
  • “The Dragon Republic” – September
  • “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” – Halloween Season
  • “The Burning God” – November
  • “Dune” – December

Note: The schedule may change due to only being able to update twice a week until the end of the school year.

The Poppy War Episode 1: Noob’s Book Club

After far too long to finish Jurassic Park, we return with The Poppy War Episode 1. I feel like I’ve been talking about this book for months. Actually, I have been talking about this book for months. But, finally, I got a chance to read the first 2 (now 4 to prepare for the next one) chapters and it hooked me already. I know, I know. I still need to record the Movie Vs. for Jurassic Park. Give me time to catch up and feel prepared. Hopefully this month. Until then, this book promises to be a blast.

Jurassic Park Episode 16: Noob’s Book Club

We’re back (so soon!) with Jurassic Park Episode 16, the finale episode for the books. I still have to do the Movie Vs., but I need to figure out when that can happen. I said last time that was my favorite part of the book. I’m already changing my mind. I absolutely loved this ending. A good ending can make me forgive nearly anything and that’s why I loved this book and movie series for so long.

Jurassic Park Episode 15: Noob’s Book Club

Another nearly month hiatus. As I talk about in the episode, the end of the school year wrecked me this year. I just said to Christine that I think I finally let go of my stress from the school year because I had a crazy dream last night about school. Regardless, I finished up the sixth iteration with Jurassic Park Episode 15. That means only one more and the Movie Vs. and I’m on to The Poppy War next week. Started reading it already and it starts off good.

Jurassic Park Episode 14: Noob’s Book Club

Another of our patented unscheduled two week hiatuses done and I’m back with Jurassic Park Episode 14. As a result of the time off, I updated the schedule. I should still be able to get through all of the books, just at different times than expected. In this episode, I start the sixth iteration. While they tranq’d Big Rex, the velociraptors wreak havoc on the park. Dr. Grant goes out to turn the power back on and a major character in now RIP in pieces.

Back to the helter skelter schedule. But, crazy things happened at school last week and I suffered from low energy (said in a Trump voice). But, I’m finally back with Jurassic Park Episode 13.

Jurassic Park Episode 12: Noob’s Book Club

Jurassic Park Episode 12 comes on time. Even though it’s the shortest episode, it is absolutely the best chapter in the book so far. Most of the time, I talk about how much I enjoyed the chapter. However, given the format where I talk about what I “liked least”, I spend some of the episode recovering from that. Can I make it three in a row on time and three this week? Come back this weekend to find out.

Things continue to be very good.

Hopefully I can still get this one done in a few weeks and start the Poppy War in May. I have a schedule to make it happen. Join me to see if it works out.
