Book Description

17 May 2007 Smart Pop
The quirky world of Stars Hollow and the incredible relationship of the Gilmore Girls—mother Lorelai and daughter Rory are best friends—continues to engage viewers after seven seasons, with its lightning-fast dialogue, dry wit, and unusual take on family relations. In this satirical yet sensitive collection of essays, leading writers weigh in on how this unique show has successfully broken the teenage-sitcom mold and gained viewers of all ages. Addressing questions such as What are the risks of having your mother be your best friend? How is Gilmore Girls anti-family, at least in the traditional sense? and What’s a male viewer to do when he finds both mother and daughter attractive? this anthology also looks at how the characters are shaped by the pop culture they consume and how prevalent a feeling of class consciousness is within the series.

Given that the previous Amazon customer assumed this would be a nostalgic photo-essay book for casual fans mourning the loss of 'Gilmore Girls' on TV, I thought I would submit the following publisher's promotional blurb, which better details the book and its basis in critical commentary about the characters and the class consciousness that permeates the series.

A must for any GGs officionados out there - discusses the series and its themes in great detail in a series of semi-academic and very philosophical essays. I was given this by my husband and enjoyed it and this copy was for a fellow Gilmore Girl. Hop e she'll love it too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Coffee at Luke's 4 Sep 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A little bit disappointed with this book, I thought it was more a souvenir book, with pictures. But it is just a fiction book. I bought it for a friend, so this is why disappointed. Glad I did not pay the full price of the book.
