    The long-awaited first episode of Literary Disco has arrived!

    We begin by revisiting our bookshelves and recommending some of our favorites (or, in Rider’s case, weird books from the teen years) to each other.

    Then we get to the meat and potatoes of the episode: Bright’s Passage. We react, we question, we banter, we express enthusiasm for talking horses.

    If you haven’t finished the book yet, don’t fret– you can revisit the episode any time. And there are no major spoilers. We mostly speak about style and character in this episode, not plot.

    Feel free to leave your reaction to the book in our comments, or tweet us @LiteraryDisco.

    Happy listening,

    Literary Disco

    My father went to vietnam as a soldier. He is a strong person but he does seem confused about the randomness. He told spent 10 months at war watching most of the people he made friends with die. The last two months he went a-wall because he figured out that the war was about numbers and support rather than people. They rather let him be a-wall than arrest him in Vietnam because it would make it seem like the soldiers were not supporting the cause. He would rather be in jail than continue to risk his life fighting the war. The government let him not fight for his last two months because they had enough problems.

    This was a really fascinating listen, I really enjoyed it! I also recently read the first Hunger Games book, because everyone on Tumblr has been fangirling over it for weeks. I expected it to be another teenage melodrama, ala Twilight, but it really surprised me. Weird thought, but have you ever considered reading any fanfiction? It’s not all fangirl smut, girl-meets-celebrity, and this-character-is-secretly-gay; there are some really amazing authors out there (I write, but I don’t consider myself anything more than slightly above average). Call me crazy, but I think the medium is underrated. Anyway, I can’t wait to find out what book you’ll be talking about next. Looking forward to the next podcast! Peace!

      Fanfiction! Great idea. We’ll work it in somehow. Stay tuned for that.
