The Drunken Book Review Podcast is an irreverent review of literature by Justin Hall and Caleb Michael Sarvis. First and foremost, this podcast is a candid, though drunken, discussion of modern (and mostly popular) literature. We are offensive, unfiltered, and while we try our best to stay focused, we will get distracted, yell over one another, and perhaps disappear at times to settle disagreements with hand-to-hand combat. It’s the Hemingway in us.

Yes the captive "prisoner" does make the hero and her "jailor" aroused while performing a heist in a library to steal some blueprints by talking about filing systems. Prisoner is a great read.
