The Book Was Better Episode 181: Beethoven's 2nd (with guest host Lauren)


This week we are immersed in one of the hottest pop culture romances ever when we read the bafflingly long novelization of Beethoven's 2nd. And joining me - with a U.S. perspective - is my horrified guest host Lauren. It's about a dog, who is in love, but then it becomes about a whole lot of other unrelated stuff. BURGER BINGE!!
