Really disappointing. I really love the tv series, and I hoped the book would have the same punch. Sometimes books based on tv shows really improve on them. And sometimes they just stink by missing the point completely. Unfortunately, this book is not good. It uses the settings, it uses the character names and situations from the series, but that's it. It's all so hollow and none of it rings true. It lacks the witty darkness and irony of the series - it's just full of feeble wisecracks, grim demons and stuff. I got halfway through and felt too depressed to continue. A real shame, because a Bufy book could be so amazing.
