    Lots of fun!

    This is a great collection of Peanuts comic strips never before presented in book form. They are hilarious and all of them are in color. Mr. Schulz's goodbye strip announcing his retirement is also included. There are 10 blank pages in the back of the book, but that's no big deal since the rest of the book is filled with the unforgettably hilarious adventures and foibles of the Peanuts gang. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Check That You Got the Printing with the Final Sunday Strip!

    When I got this wonderful volume, I decided to read it from front to back and not skip to the final Sunday strip. Was I disappointed when the final strip was missing! Apparently, this problem has been corrected in subsequent printings and the final strip is available on the official Peanuts Web site. If yours is missing, be sure to return it for the correct version (unless you think this error-ridden first printing will become a collectors' item, and more valuable). Authors should take note of this problem, and be sure that someone very capable takes over watching your publisher for quality issues after you are deceased. As a further example of this problem, Ansel Adams books are often printed on pages that are much too small for the images now, even though he went to great lengths to avoid having the quality of his work compromised. I enjoyed seeing this volume. It is comprised of all the strips from the final year (if you get the right version). More than that, it was a microcosm of 50 years of Peanuts. Here are some examples: Charlie Brown: 'If I ever got a [love letter], I don't know what I'd do.' Lucy: 'I'm thinking of starting a discussion group . . . People would come from all around to listen to me.' Sally speaking on her string telephone: 'How do you get an outside line?' Snoopy to Woodstock while making a sled out of a water dish: 'Go ahead . . . Climb in -- Sorry . . . I forgot to pour the water out . . .' Rerun: When told by his teacher to paint flowers -- 'I don't do flowers . . . I do underground comics.' Marcie (reacting to plans to play Mary in the Christmas play): 'There is no Christmas play, sir . . . That was last year.' My favorite sequence involved several strips with Charlie Brown and Lucy at the pitcher's mound under a snowy cover speculating about the upcoming baseball season. If you are like me, Peanuts will be with you forever! I also recommend that you get a copy of A Charlie Brown Christmas. It has wonderful background material about Mr. Schulz and Peanuts that nicely complement this collection of the last strips. After you have finished enjoying both books, I suggest that you think about how things would have turned out differently with the strip if the characters have overcome their fundamental weaknesses. What if Charlie Brown had not been so gullible? What if Lucy had been more considerate? What if someone had sent Charlie Brown a valentine? After you've thought about it, then ask yourself what it is that you should change about yourself that would open up the possibilities for someone else. Then go make those changes. That would be a wonderful thing to do, and a great way to honor your affection for Peanuts. Good luck in kicking your next football!

    The funniest of the Peanuts!!

    I use this book for reading when I am upset because it makes me laugh. I also just read it for fun. It is really funny. Every once and awhile i will even trace some pictures that I like. My favorite Character is Snoopy. I think anyone who has every felt like reading an easy or funny book will love this one.

    THE ORIGINALS ARE THE BEST

    THESE COMICS WERE OKAY BUT THE ORIGINALS FROM THE 60'S AND 70'S (NO RERUN CHARACTER) I FOUND TO BE A LITTLE MORE FUNNY.

    'Like a watching a MOVIE!'

    If you are like me, when reading Peanuts you feel like your watching a movie. I highly recommend this book, but then again I would recommend any Peanuts book.

    it is woderful!

    Allright I have to make the note that ballantine´s have solved the problem with the lost pages(including the last strip), so now the book is as it was intended to be, a nice and excellent compilation of the last year of peanuts before charles schulz passing away, it is a real shame that they are no longer with us...have a great time with this book!

    AAUGH! The last 10 pages are blank!

    This would be a five-star book if all the pages had actually been printed, but the last 10 pages of the book are blank! The back cover promises all of the strips from the last year of Peanuts including the final farewell strip, but that strip and the last 10 pages of strips are missing! Ballantine should recall all of the first editions, because they are ALL like this. What an error! I hope they print a corrected second edition soon, because, aside from the missing pages it is a beautiful book. All of the strips are in full color--even the dailies.
