(TLDR - Looks like an awesome recap on first skim through. P1$$3d off at the anonymous tool of a poster that left a poor rating because they weren't interested in the book or the show) I bought this for 3 reasons: 1) it was today's Nook Daily Find, 2) A recap would be good before Season 5 starts, and 3) (perhaps the most important) is that it really made me mad that some tool left a low star rating just because it didn't meet his/her interests and has never watched the show. Really? Is that a reason to leave a bad review. Just because it doesn't meet your needs? That'd be like me leaving a low star review on the bible just because I don't believe in religions or gods. People will or won't look at a book at first glance based on the number of stars it has. It's possible that the author may lose sales because of that low star rating. That's just rude. As in all things in this world, it'd be a happier place if people like the anonymous poster would just change the freaking channel/station/web page/whatever if something showed up that didn't meet their needs. No need to bash it. Ugh. Soap box rant over, I guess. If you read all this, I appreciate your time. If it was TLDR, I understand. Had to get it off my chest. Chris
Really cool! This is perfect if you're a fan of the series and a fan of learning about the filmmaking process, from conception to execution. Be advised that there are images in this book, so it will look best on Nook models that allow you to view pictures, or using the app on your tablet and smart phone. There is also a Season 1 & 2 version of this book.
