The first section is entitled, "It All Comes Out in Moron: Personal Relationships." "Whimsy Goes with Everything" by Heather Swain argues that everybody in Stars Hollow is a little eccentric, but that Kirk is something special. "Boys Not Allowed" by Jennifer Armstrong explains why Lorelai had trouble staying engaged long enough to get married, an argument that extends to Rory since the Gilmore Girls are too busy to be messed up by mere mortal men. Stephanie Whiteside focuses on a particular relationship in "When Paris Met Rory," contending that they have one of the most problematical relationships in television history.
The second section, "The Other Relationship: Parenting," focuses more on Lorelia and Emily. In "Mothers, Daughters, and Gilmore Girls," Janine Hiddlestone analyzes the fears, disappointments, and triumphs of being a mother in Stars Hollow, focusing in the end on the reversal of Lorelai and her parents' roles when Rory dropped out of Yale.Read more ›
Did you ever notice the significance of Lorelai becoming a maid after leaving home? Emily fires maids every day, doesn't consider them human, and in season 6 calls them criminals who get their children to rob you. She said that to Rory, the child of a former maid. Little gems like that make this book a must-read. Plus, it gives you an excuse to break out the much-watched DVDs again.
It's a practical Gilmore Girls manual. I was afraid this book would be nothing but a repetition of all I knew about GG already, after having devotedly seen all seven seasons of the show. Instead, I came upon a pleasant writing, offering a different view of the show. An outside, real life view, not a fictional Stars Hollow citizen one.
As being the Pop Culture references one of the major highlights of this show, the reference glossary on the back of this book will delight any pop culture fan and remind us of Amy Sherman-Palladino's wittily written dialogues that Lorelai and Rory gave life to.
