From the pages of Nerdy Show – it’s Nerdy Show Book Club! In these literary episodes, we share the books we’re currently reading, do dramatic readings from the best and worst nerd literature, talk with notable geek authors, and discuss a book we’ve read along with the community. It's been an obscene amount of time since we cracked open Book Club, but neither hell, nor high water, nor the waning attention spans of modern man can hold us back from our quest for enthralling brain-pictures. Join Cap, Colin, Brandon, and Denika as they share what they read during our long absence and we discuss our community read-along: Neil Gaiman's grim fairytale, The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
Explore the dark truths of Denika's late night reading, Colin's frustrations with Earthsea, and a true story of a sexual awakening from The Shaggy Dog while growing up raised by early 20th century pseudoscience. Then, indulge in an exhilarating reading from read the Gooflumps classic, Stay Out of The Bathroom. And finally wander into the haunting and beautiful world of our featured book with a spoiler-free discussion (and a safely quarantined spoilerific one at the end) as well as a dramatic reading. What's the difference between mythic fiction, magical realism, and other arbitrary literary genres? Discover the answers (or not) within!
