At first I just bought the book because I couldn't get enough of Glee. I didn't actually think it would become one of my favorite books! The book captures the comedy found on the show perfectly. It is a great light read. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the show!

Very rarely does a television show translate well into written word, but Glee: Foreign Exchange is pitch perfect. I really felt like each voice of the cast was captured perfectly and the story flowed just as well as a television script. That said, there is no music that makes this book sing like the television show. It would have been wonderful if there would have been snippets of the song available online to go with the book. As far as this being just a young adult novel, it is better than most with an easy to follow and enjoy storyline. McKinley High is hosting a group of foreign chorus singers from France and each member of the group has unique experience with this exchange. Kurt meets people that are more fashionable than he is, Finn finds a new love, Puck's sexiness doesn't translate and Rachel meets her match. Sue has some great barbs about Mr. Shu's hair -- those quips are just spectacular! Brittany delivers several spacey one liners that amaze me. This is the perfect read for anyone who adores Glee as much as I do.

This book is not like the show because it's a prequel. It's a sweet introduction of how Glee Club came to be.

I love glee. Its so personal and it shows that any person can be whoever they want. Also its very entertaining with the relationships. I remember one time Sue Sylvester said, "what couple has Glee club havnt tried?"

Thoe Im a GLEEK I think that this book really captures what Glee is about. The book is all about the beginning. The start. This book is what happened before Mr.Shuster was the glee club teacher. Before Finn joined glee club. I think it is a great story about fiting in or atleast trying to. This book teaches you that it's okay to be different. If we have a different person inside of us we should let it out. Don't listen to what other people say. We should learn to love ourselves for who we are and not who we pretend to be.
