It's a very big, heavy, coffee table book... but it was S0Oo
worth shipping it to my farm house in Northern Bavaria...
The Frankenstein Monster wanted to borrow it right away.
Highly recommended, with a few dozen pictures I've never seen.
Having grown up with these characters they are forever ingrained within. I also have very fond memories of being so scared after watching one of these movies that I was afraid of going into a dark kitchen to get a glass of water. Even so, I always came back for more. The Universal Monster movies were the core of the genre of movie I liked best as a kid. Thanks to continued interest in the movies and books like this, they have not been lost in time but instead continue to live on. I recommend this first rate book to anyone who is interested in what put Universal on the map.
The book is very well presented with lots of great photographs. That aside I think the book is a little overpriced.
If you need a book that covers very nicely basics of Universal Studios Monsters than it is certainly this. You will not regret it. :) Enjoy :)
