No new information- just stuff you probably already know
on February 14, 2009
This book was okay but didn't really give any interesting behind the scenes information. To be honest the book seemed like it was stuffed with boring repetitive jibberish just to fill up the book. For example, if you are buying the book you've probably seen the movie and/or read the books. Why then would you need to have the ENTIRE movie plot described to you (throughout the whole book)? I don't mean described and analyzed or described while adding insightful details or information. Just described. A good part of the book is devoted to this and it just seemed to me to be useless, and like I said, filler to make the book bigger. Don't get me wrong, the book is not horrible, just not what I expected. I didn't learn anything about the movie, books, etc. by reading this. There are some good photos but I was overall a little disappointed. If you are considering buying this book, I recommend waiting for Catherine Hardwick's book about the making of the movie to come out (March 17). Her book is about the same price and hopefully will actually have some new information and be worth the buy.
