Adult/High School - Thomas says that creating the TV show Veronica Marssaved both his career as a screenwriter and his soul. He had all but given up on the possibility of actually selling a "teen detective" story to the networks when WB bought it. This collection of essays has a mix of writing styles. From why Veronica lies to why audiences love her on-again, off-again relationship with her boyfriend, each selection serves to enhance both Thomas's thoughts on what makes good TV and to provide literary analysis. Yes, pop culture TV can be analyzed, and very well. Pair this with the DVDs of seasons one and two of the series and you won't need a detective to figure out where the materials are. They'll be checked out.-Mary George, Placer County Library, Auburn, CACopyright 2007 Reed Business Information

Neptune Noir is a collection of essays on the hit drama Veronica Mars, and is not authorized by CW, the creators or producers of Veronica Mars, or any entity associated with the show. More than just a high school drama, Veronica Mars is a smart and savvy teen detective show that offers complex mysteries and rapier wit, engaging social commentary, and noir sensibilities—with the occasional murder thrown in for good measure. This collection, edited by the creator and executive producer of the show, offers supreme insight into the class struggles and love stories of the series. Essays by top writers intelligently address a multitude of questions, such as Is Veronica a modern-day vigilante? Why is a show that features rape, potential incest, and a teen girl outsmarting local authorities so popular with America’s conservative population? and Why is Veronica and Logan’s relationship the most important story-driving factor in the show?

It sucks that the show got cancelled this book was very good. I have heard that there is going to be a movie and it is going to be in the future when she finally becomes a detective for the FBI. I have also heard the movie is going to come out in 2014 and Kriaten Bell and most of the original cast is going to be in the movie and the sjow is going to come back on but with a difgerent name like Sex and the City has a show about just Carrie called The Carrie Diaries, this one is going to take place after the movie ends. SO EXCITED AND A GREAT BOOK!!
