"A Buffy compendium-all one wants to know about this series"
The title says it all as this book provides the audience
with a "guide to Buffy's World". For those who have been
living in a cave for the past decade, Buffy is a typical
teenager with the usual world shattering angst that
confronts that super species. Except Buffy has a slight
problem not involving hunks (that is normal human variety)
as she is this age's Vampire Slayer forced to do her
homework in between eradicating evil beings.
This tome provides fans with insight into the original
movie, the TV series along with biographies of the key
stars of the TV show, and a look at vampirism. The non-
fiction is well written and "Buffyites" will enjoy biting
into it. Perhaps the only setback is no references to the
vast literature, especially the graphic novels that have
added to the cult legend of Buffy.
Buffy Summers is just your average teenager with everyday
problems except for one teeny tiny thing-she's the Vampire
Slayer. Balancing homework with her duties as the one
chosen to rid the Earth of evil forces sometimes puts a
crimp in Buffy's social life, but she manages. That the
buff high schooler can annihilate vampires and other
monsters while remaining fashionably dressed and cutely
dressed illustrates the dichotomy that is Buffy.
This companion guide covers all aspects of the Buffy
phenomena-from the 1992 feature film starring Kristy
Swanson and Luke Perry, to the development and production
of the current hit TV series starring Sarah Michelle
Gellar. Based on interviews with the show's creator,
producers and principal cast members, the book includes
cast biographies, critical summaries of each episode,
trivia, behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and more.
Like the series, the Buffy book combines the thoughtful (an
essay on slayer mythology throughout history) with the
frivolous for a frightfully good time.
