Customer Reviews

Step it up

I love most of the Book Riot podcasts, and I love hearing recommendations in the mystery/thriller genre(s). So I'll probably keep listening. But this podcast isn't quite as high-quality as the other BR ones. In the latest episode, I listened to 30+ minutes of rambling discussion on defining the genre with hardly any recommendations -- this after extensive discussion of the same issue in the previous episode! I just couldn't finish.

More perspective please

For the most part, I like this podcast. But I wish they would have a little perspective when reading things that are considered classic. In the noir episode, both could not finish classic noir and cited reasons that showed they shouldn’t be talking about books on this grand level. If you can’t read a book written in the 30’s or 40’s (or any other period) and understand the time it was written, then why are you talking about books. Maybe you need some more diversity in this podcast.

Um, like, you know......

I subscribe to a lot of podcast. I subscribe to several Book Riot podcast. And I'm an avid mystery reader so I was excited when the release of this podcast was announced. Sadly, I am very disappointed. The amount of ums, likes and you knows has is making me crazy. Combine that with the fact that it takes a ridiculously long amount of time to actually get to a point in the podcast where there are recommendations for any mystery books means I will be unsubscribing.
