I expected this to focus on more core characters over the past 50 years, but too much of this book highlights the current cast. There isn't one picture of Edward or Lila Quartermaine, two major characters of a core family. How can that be? Anna Lee, David Lewis, and John Ingle deserve more respect. There are several typos and there is at least one glaring error in the book (Nikolas Cassadine is Stefan's uncle). Thinking that this was a collector's edition by People, I expected a book of better quality, but I am highly disappointed. I'm glad I didn't purchase another one to give to someone as a gift because it wouldn't have been money well spent. Save your money and don't purchase this book.

I chose this book because I am a fan of General Hospital and proud that they made it to the 50th year. However they seem to left out several key characters/actors that made the show so great and included new actors that just came on the show. That would not be a problem, but leaving out others was a major flaw.

It makes a good keepsake, but it is the same as the regular magazine which i also bought. So if you want a keepsake just buy the magazine. They are exactly the same.

While the photos were good, I felt that it should have included each core family-ie: Hardy's, Weber's, Quartermaine's, Corinthos', Scorpio's, etc... they completely omitted Constance Towers, who has played #1 villain Helena Cassadine since 1997 after Elizabeth Taylor originated the role in 1981, with the famous Luke & Laura curse. I felt they could have also included storylines that impacted audiences on social level and spoken to the fact that GH led the way, changed the format of soaps for every single network soap after Gloria Monty took the reigns in 1976. There was no special tribute to her, Wendy Riche and Claire Labine, as well as Michele Val Jean, who really educated audiences and brought awareness of breast cancer, aids/hiv, rape, organ donation, abuse, alcoholism. They should have been a part of this tribute because without them GH would have long since been cancelled. I thought they should have included the new regime of Executive Producer Frank Valentini and Head Writer Ron Carlivati for successfully bringing the show back to MUST SEE TV. I felt that for a show that is so iconic and broke television records for daytime television, should have been much more in depth. if fans want to buy a 50th Anniversary Special Edition magazine, they should get the Soap Opera DIgest. It's great, more in depth.

Weak. I've watched for 30 years and half of the main characters aren't even mentioned in the book. But the authors included several random side characters and guest stars that contributed nothing to the show. It's really a picture book with a few lines on the characters in the photos. It is so incomplete that it made me wonder whether the author/People Magazine ever watched General Hospital. Half the content is Luke and Laura, but Lucy Coe gets ˝ page and Edward Quartermaine isn't in the book at all, nor is Nikolas Casadine. Finally, it is so disappointing that only one (most recent) actor is pictured for each character. The book should have include all the actors who played the main characters on the show. This is definitely NOT a collector's edition. True GH fans will be disappointed by this book. I gave it 2 stars only for the pictures of the characters they included.
I gave it to my friends who are also long-term fans and they all promptly gave it back. They said the same thing. You know a book is bad if your friends give it back to you within a week.

Pretty disappointing - missed alot of people, many legends who had been on the show for years. Don't waste your money - this was pretty useless and not worthy of a 50th anniversary

There is a lot of great information in here, and it's well put together for a magazine, but it focuses a lot more on the current cast and stories than I would have prefered. They are important, I enjoy watching them every weekday, but for a special issue on the 50th anniversary, I feel like more attention should have been paid to the past. Also, the "current" information was already falling out of date by the 50th anniversary on April 1st, 2013. If you keep in mind this is just a hardcover People magazine and don't expect a ton, you'll be fine. I'm glad I found it at a low price.
