If you enjoy being irritated with a book you, as a reader, spent roughly $15.00- $20.00 on, please, go forth and buy this book; if not, spend your hard earned cash elsewhere ("Angel: The Casefiles" might be a better choice).
The first irritation of this book is although it is "supposed" to be about "Angel," Stafford seems to be writing a sequel to "Bite Me;" she talks about Buffy more than Angel. Don't get me wrong, I'm personally an avid fan of both shows. However, "Angel," whilst being a spin-off, stood on it's own two feet, following "Buffy"s storyline minimally, and Stafford attempts to make parallels between the two shows that just aren't there. It becomes a fly in the reader's ear after a while.
The second major irritation in this book are the menial episode summaries. Having seen every "Angel" episode, at least once, I know the basic plot of each episode and only need a refresher. However, Stafford leaves out MAJOR plot points. If one was trying to find a certain episode he/she missed, one may get a "ballpark" idea of which episode he/she i looking for, especially in Season 4, when the season is basically one long story arc, and if you miss one episode, you're clueless and confused. In my opinion, a plot summary should be like a Cliff's Notes version of the episode, and Stafford only writes about PART of an episode, usually the part I'm figuring that she find pleasing.
And finally, the last bit of annoyance... Nitpicks. Almost anyone who has read this book does not like the "Nitpick" section.Read more ›
