Episode 33: Irish Thoroughbred

Irish Thoroughbred is Nora Roberts' first book - we wanted to see where one of the richest, most popular authors around got her start.  Well.  It is something. Adelia lives in 16th century Ireland and has lost everything, so she gets on a plane to 1980 and becomes a horse trainer!  Horse girl alert: THIS IS NOT A HORSE GIRL BOOK.  I have read a lot, you guys, a lot of books with horse races in them and I can assure you that these horse races are the least exciting horse races in the world.  Nora.  Please.


So Travis is the boring-ass romance novel dude who's always throwing her up against walls and stuff and he owns everything including the house she lives in, so that's just great.  There's a sham marriage, there's a rape attempt, there's some seriously weird Irish stereotyping... at least there's a shopping montage! We do have a special treat for you - two different Rounds brothers get to talk about horse racing and horse drinking in this episode! An inausp…

Do the reading!

DO THE READING!

If you want to read along with us so you aren't just taking our word for it, here's what we're doing for our upcoming episodes:

The Persian Boy by Mary Renault

The Boyfriend by RL Stine

Monstrous teenagers and teenage monsters!  Thrill as mean teenagers fake deaths, fake zombiefication, fake other deaths, and then can't figure out why nobody likes them!

DO NOT FUCK PAXTON ANDREWS.  Avoid accidentally making eye contact with Paxton Andrews.  If you absolutely must enter a room with Paxton Andrews take extreme precautions so you don't die horribly in the Vietnam War.  It's pretty good for her career as a journalist tho.

This one has no sexual assault but it does have a horrible pointless war, an awful murder-suicide, bombings, screaming, howling, and a mammy.  (YES A MAMMY.  Yeah I wasn't expecting that either.)
