Othersode #68: Everyone’s Gay! / The Time Traveler’s Wife

Zip back in time with the Book Squad for our discussion of the new HBO series The Time Traveler’s Wife. We talk about the differences between the novel and the show (and that one movie no one liked), the “grooming” criticisms, the pacing, the casting, and how the show ends…or does it? Join us for our next Bookpisode on Note on an Execution by Danya Kukafa on July 11th. Then tune in on July 25th for an Othersode on the new Netflix adaptation of Persuasion featuring special guest Tirzah Price, author of Sense and Second-Degree Murder! Don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe!
