About This Show
Tired of the same-old serious book analysis in podcasts? Well, we were.
To solve this, Ryan and Callum started Thug Book Club. A podcast that gets literature 'lit' and puts the 'ok' into books. Every fortnight, the team releases an episode on a book, it can be old, new, classic or not, anything is up for discussion.
Expect foul-language and spoilers, but don't worry if you haven't read the novel, we've done it for you.

#025 Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, J.K. Rowling
Ah yes. The different second album. The maligned sequel. The underwhelming follow-up. All traps that the likes of Frank Herbert, The Darkness and whoever directed Grease 2 have fallen into. Yet sometimes an author or artist will pull it out the bag so deftly that everyone sits there dumbfounded and thinks ‘well, I suppose we have a saga on our hands here, eh?’ Enter J.K. Rowling.This week the boys are exploring the deep cauldron of continuation that is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. They explore the somewhat intellectual themes of racism, genre and sexual allegory, while also paying fan service with such hard-hitting topics as the life and times of sentient house plants, and poses you wouldn’t want to be pulling when being turned to stone. Spoilers and swearing throughout.
