Customer Reviews

Seriously In-Depth

Great if you want to get inside a particular author's head. If you're an aspiring author, this is probably for you. Personally, I find it a bit dry. I you just want to find out what book to pick up at the airport bookstore, then I'd heartily recommend a different BBC books podcast: "Book Panel With Simon Mayo". It's much lighter, wittier and entertaining.

Most enjoyable

This podcast is one of my favorites. The BBC interviewer and the audience ask intelligent questions and it is entertaining and educational to listen to.

Wonderful resource for students

My students listen to the author interviews and then write short summaries for extra credit. This podcast gives them great background on the books that we read in class or that I have them read independently.
