The Gideon the Ninth Reread Chapters 37 and Epilogue

Here we are, friendos. We’ve reached the conclusion of Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir. I’m your host, Liberty Hardy, and it has been a great honor to lead you through this amazing Locus Award-winning novel. And remember that you can now pick up the second book in the Locked Tomb trilogy: Harrow the Ninth! It’s so freaking good, and I can’t wait to hear what you think about it.

Now, make yourself a snack and settle in, because we’re about to embark on the end of the first book. It be little, but it be mighty. And as always, ready yourself for mega-spoilers.

SO MANY EMOTIONS. It’s time for another deep dive into Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir, and it’s so close to the end that I am having all the feels. I’m your host, Yosaffbridge, and today we are rooting around in chapters thirty-five and thirty-six of this kick-ass Locus Award-winning novel. Which is out in paperback, so your book group has no excuse not to read it now.

There are only four more chapters of Gideon left, so grab your blankie and some tissues, because this shit’s about to get feels. And, remember, there’s no party like a Gideon the Ninth discussion party, because a Gideon the Ninth discussion party has spoilers.

The Gideon the Ninth Reread: Chapters 23 and 24

It’s time for another close read of Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir! I’m your host, Mr. Bob Dobalina. How is everyone doing out there? Not much has changed in the world since last week, but a lot has changed this week in Gideon the Ninth. I can’t believe we’re more than halfway through the book now! Today I’ll be running down chapters twenty-three and twenty-four for your amusement. And although these chapters be but little, they are fierce.

And like every time I reread books, I find that I have a new favorite minor character. This time around, which is my ninth reading, it’s Camilla. She’s so sensible and brave. I am neither of those things, so I admire her. (I had a different favorite minor character the first time I read the book, but they turned out to be rotten. Which also explains a lot about my dating life.)
