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.

#030 High Fidelity, Nick Hornby
You coast through life thinking you're invincible, until suddenly you're in your thirties and your whole life is stagnating. And though neither Ryan or Callum are quite at that point yet, there's plenty to reflect on in their own lives as they read one of their all time favourite books, Nick Hornby's 'High Fidelity'.For you see, both of your hosts are dangerously close to the big 3-0, so while this book was the epitome of cool when they were teenagers, the parallels are getting a bit too real for them nowadays. In fact, the scenarios that protagonist Rob Fleming endures would have an uncomfortable air of familiarity for any male who's negotiating the tail end of their youth.Still, that doesn't stop 'High Fidelity' being a cracking book, as there's more to it than an existential crisis. Music, mates, humour and London are just a few of the things that make you appreciate its brilliance. So join them as they reminisce and compare and hopefully not take the lessons too seriously.Spoilers and swearing throughout.
