Hear… Read This! Ep.12; The Poisoning Angel by Jean Teule and Scoop by Evelyn Waugh

Hello and welcome to the September edition of Hear…Read This! Featuring four hosts, two books, and lots of discussion! Take a listen and you’ll hear Simon of SavidgeReads and The Readers, Gav of GavReads and Kate and Rob of Adventures With Words sharing their thoughts.

This month, we’re discussing our views on Simon’s choice, The Poisoning Angel by Jean Teule and Rob’s choice of Scoop by Evelyn Waugh.

Don’t forget, you can follow us on Twitter, like the page on Facebook, and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes!

Section 1: The Poisoning Angel by Jean Teule 


This was Simon’s selection, as we follow Helene as she embarks on a killing streak across France. Will this dark tale of cake and death whet our appetites?

Section 2: What Else We’ve Been Reading

Before we move on to our second book of the episode, the hosts discuss some of the other books they have been reading this month: Rob read No Harm Can Come To A Good Man by James Smythe, Simon recommends After Me Comes The Flood by Sarah Perry, Gav read The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack and Kate read The Bunker Diary Kevin Brooks.

Section 3: Scoop by Evelyn Waugh 


Rob’s ‘classic’ choice was another darkly comic tale as with Scoop, Waugh takes a critical and satirical look at the media’s coverage of war and the media itself. A product of its times with some very outdated attitudes, will it still be relevant today?

And finally… Here are next month’s choices by Gav and Kate:
