The Book Report: Episode 22: Back 2 School

By posted at 6:00 am on June 26, 2015 1

Welcome to a new episode of The Book Report presented by The Millions! This week, Janet and Mike are going Back 2 School. (They have 2 go Back 2 School because they think “to” is spelled “2.”) Each month, they’ll be reading books they never got around to reading in high school. This time, Janet picks up A Good Man Is Hard to Find by Flannery O’Connor, and Mike trudges through A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway.

covercovercoverDiscussed in this episode: Jurassic World (dir. Colin Trevorrow), Southern Gothic fiction, fatalism, gentility, poverty, Catholic literature, linking verbs, World War I, love, Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreation, fireworks.

Not discussed in this episode: That scene in Evil Dead 2 (dir. Sam Raimi) when Ash traps his possessed hand under a can and weighs it down with a copy of A Farewell to Arms. Man, that was sweet.
