Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a thin little book (155 pages) that is mostly transcripts of the film 42 UP. It includes snippet interviews of the other UP film series, but these are identical to what you will find in the "flashbacks" in the 42 UP film. There is a little bit extra here from the 35/42 Uppers than in the movie but not enough to be hyped as "never-before-available out-takes from 35 UP and 42 UP". The interviews themselves are raw transcripts without descriptive comments like "sighs", "laughs", "winces" which would help put the verbal comments in perspective.

It saddened me to see such classy people like Michael Apted and Roger Ebert involved in this book project which clearly came from a marketing person. This book will not enhance your experience of 42 UP in the least.

My advice is to get the 42 UP series DVD and listen to Michael Apted's commentary track. It contains much more information than is found in this book.

This book is useful for the enjoyment and appreciation of the 42 Up films. I would never recommend it for anyone who has not had some experience seeing the film, because it is mainly a transcript of the film, with some reflective comment.

I have seen most of the movies about these British children, filmed every seven years from childhood on. It is a fascinating study of how personalities seen in children remain ingrained through adulthood.
