    For anyone who is a Joss Whedon Fan

    I’ll start by being completely honest; I am a geek. Sometimes a closet geek, but I am definitely a geek. While reading a SFX magazine on my day off I saw a blurb for a book called “Chick Unravel Time”, this title along got me hook, and I found myself looking for other works by this collection of women, which led me to “Whedonistas”. As I read this description of this book, I knew I had to have it, and instead of waiting for an actually book I was drawn to immediately have it to myself in eBook format. Everything else I was reading had to wait, this book through title and description alone spoke volumes to me.
    I had this book finished in less than two days; if it wasn’t for having to work I know I could have done it sooner. This is a collection of stories from women who love Joss Whedon and all of his work. There are a number of great pieces in this book, some that reflect on Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse. It was amazing getting to read stories about which Joss and his shows affected so many in so many different ways. Since this book is a collection of essays, you could easily pick and choose which ones to read. You could go straight to the ode to Oz, or directly to the bit about Illyria giving Wesley closure before his death. I recommended reading each one in order. There is a flow that feels specific and cohesive, and even if you were only a huge fan of one of Joss' creations, I guarantee that won't stop you from enjoying the essays about his other work. Sure didn't stop me from loving every minute I was reading this collection and getting to know the women behind it. These women are young, old, gay, straight, professional writers, amateur writers, but they all have one very big thing in common: Joss Whedon has affected their lives with his creations. This book will be awesome for anyone who loves the work of Joss Whedon old or new, and it overall just great in general. Plus if you read up on each of the women who helped compose this book you might find you have a few more books to read. Enjoy!!
