As soap opera fans mourn the loss of yet another blockbuster daytime drama when "All My Children" goes off ABC on September 23, 2011, People magazine has put together this thick, well-researched work on one of the most popular daytime serials to grace our screens. Filled with beautiful black and white photos and extremely gorgeous colored pics this edition of People is a must-own for fans of "All My Children". It traces the history of the show from the very beginning in 1970, discusses some of the series' most dramatic storylines, and gives fans a gift to enjoy for decades to come. The weddings, divorces, the comings and goings of cast members are celebrated here. See when Erica Kane had the first legal abortion, when a popular character had a face lift before "Young and Restless" did it, the greatest TV wedding in 1980 when Nina and Cliff got married which even put Luke and Laura's to shame, and all the other wonderful moments in Pine Valley.

Although "All My Children" goes off network television there is hope for its future as Prospect Park, a huge million dollar ad agency in Hollywood, has bought its rights to air new episodes on the internet and perhaps even cable television. Let's hope Susan Lucci will be a part of it!

I don't envy the editors who worked on this book-- how do you condense a four-decade show into a People-style breezy read? The result is beautiful to look at but has a lot of gaping holes for the AMC fan. Once-important characters and storylines are glossed over or entirely omitted. I would have expected at least a page on memorable villains, Emmy winners from the show and something humorous about recasts. All in all, a whole lotta Lucci but not enough on anything else.

I'm SO happy about this AMC Commemorative issue...and so sad about losing my all-time favorite soap! This is a beautifully photographed issue with MANY wonderful memories over the 41 years of this great soap. This is a treasured part of my personal library and helps take out the sting of the loss. I only wish they had included a "final day cast photo". Perfect AMC memories encapsulated in this hardback bound book!

This special edition of PEOPLE magazine is All My Children gold for all of the loyal supporters out there. As pretty much all of us know by now, AMC is off the aire, at least until Prospect Park gets the online version up and running in January (hopefully). So until then, if you want your fix of the soap, get this book. (preferably in hardcover) It has great pictures from throughout the years of the main actors and even those that didn't stay as long they probably would have liked. Susan Lucci has a great spread in this issue, and it gives you a lot of information that you may have not known about her and the other actors. It's also pretty big (i.e. not just like ten pages) so you feel like you get your money's worth buying this. It's just a good keepsake so you can go back and reminese on the 41 year old soap opera, and bring back a lot of memories from storylines you may have forgotten about. Also, for those who would like to be interested in watching the soap opera when it transfers to the online version, this would give you good background on a lot of the show. There are even timelines for each decade with major story plots. Well worth the money in my opinion and better than buying a ton of old soap magazines for the pictures. If you get this, it will definitely last a long time.

PEOPLE Celebrates All My Children: 41 Years of Love, Lust & Life in Pine Valley!

I bought this Special All My Children Edition of People Magazine as a gift for my wife.

This Soap Opera, ALL MY CHILDREN staring Susan Lucci has ended after 41 years of continuous shows.
My wife has watched since the first episode. As are all the constant fans of the show she is heart broken that
it is gone. This is a great magazine filled with memories for a fan of the show. After she read through the whole
thing she got together with two other friends/fans over lunch and they discussed the book, pictures, and memories
of the show. What a great way for the "Baby Boomer" in your life to enjoy some time with friends and a subject that
they all love.

If you are one of those folks who's brain resides in Pine Valley this is a way to insure your memories of the show.

I have been watching All My Children since high school. My friends and I would come home at lunch to catch up on Erica and her many boyfriends in the early 70's. Then, at college, I would schedule my classes around AMC. This book brought back many memories from the many decades it has been a part of my life. This book is a treasure for any AMC fan!!
