Rated Squeaky Clean

There is a sound issue and while I was able to correct most of it, this episode is not perfect. I do apologize for the inconvienience.

This week our guest co-host is the novelist, teacher and podcaster Aaron Gansky. He was a wonderful part of the discussion on how to modernize oral tradition stories for the modern reader. The Servant’s Daughter was the first parable for Literary Roadhouse and was a perfect catalyst for this important discussion.

Don’t forget, to rate the story! For the history of our goofy system, see Anais’ post “Read Short Stories or Ray Bradbury Cries.” If you want to design a Bradberry, we’d love to see it.

So tell us, on a scale of 1-6 Bradberries, how do you rate The Servant’s Daughter? Tell us in the comments below or via voicemail, and we will give the final tally on the next episode.

4 comments on The Servant’s Daughter – Paulo Coelho – Literay Roadhouse Ep 22

  1. Todd Williams says:

    I can’t see an author of Coelho’s "importance" being proud enough of this little parable to post it as his own work. It seems like an unfinished fragment from a high school assignment that might be found in a dead author’s papers. It is a nice lesson but just seemed a little too short and (as Anais said) juvenile for me. I enjoyed the discussion on the podcast, so I guess the story served a purpose…
    2 Bradberries for me!

    I don’t think Paulo wanted to "cover" the story. I think he just wanted to tell it. In his novels, he frequently inserts little stories from the oral traditions.

    Great choice! Paulo Coelho is one of my favorite authors. I have read most of his books, they are easy reads, but they always have deeper meaning and deliver one or more messages. They are like self -help books, but the message is delivered in story telling form, which makes it more fun! Just like this short story.

    The story was fun and simple I give it 3.5 bradberries!
