Welcome to our podcast!

Do you like to read? Do you like to watch movies? Well, get ready for both things to be ruined by The Book Was Better!

You see, there are these books called novelizations. They're 'the book of the movie', those cheap, shoddy things you see sitting on op-shop shelves, unloved and abandoned. And for good reason! Most of the time, they turnout to be either unreadable or insane. Or both!

That's why Jessica McLeod and Luke Milton are reading them for you, and picking out the best bits. Get ready for hamfisted dialogue, clunky exposition, nonsensical metaphors and confusing action. Every second Tuesday, we'll be bringing you all this as well as our unnecessarily complicated theories about these books and their authors.

Let's go to the movies read a book listen to a podcast!!!

  1. Might I suggest the 1977 novelisation Star Wars by (ahem) George Lucas. Or is the prospect of another Alan Dean Foster experience too horrifying? I think you enjoy the patchiness of its style :)
