Better Than The Movie

...because the book normally is!

Better Than The Movie is a podcast for people who love reading diversely, books, book news, and issues related to literacy and popular culture. Our goal is to review and discuss book themes with passion and an open mind. We want to encourage our readers to look beyond the best sellers lists and  discover new voices and stories. 

We are The Readers, the people who the publishing world should be catering to, but oftentimes  don't . We are smart. We are funny. We are sometimes a little snarky. And we always, ALWAYS, think that the book is better than the movie


EPISODE TWENTY-SIX: A Thousand Splendid Tears

Been gone for a minute now we're back at the jump off. We're back with an extra jam packed show this week to make up for our absence. We're talking Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me and some of the criticism it has received about the perceived lack of content regarding Black women. Then we talk about a Michigan bookstore that has decided to offer refunds to anyone who bought Go Set a Watchman and was less than impressed. The bulk of the episode is dedicated to discussing Khaled Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns. Show wraps up with What Are You Reading? Oh! And we also announce a contest to win a Kindle!
