This week we take on a smart book. Maybe too smart.
Rider first stumbled upon Submergence by JM Ledgard when it was given as an example of complex grown up literature within an article about the popularity of Young Adult work. The trio decided to give it a try, and are pretty unanimous in its brilliance.
But does brilliance make a book meaningful? Or…fun?
Specifically, the group discusses how the worldliness and scientific complexity of Submergence might not be enough to make up for its minimal plot.
Up first, the triumphant return of Judging a Book by Its Cover. Will the trio be able to tell things about a book from the first paragraph? Will they maybe know exactly which book it is?
Tune in to find out.
