As an English student and a Supernatural fan, this was perfect for me. Some essays go into more depth than others but I enjoyed reading all of them. Some of the authors use critical theories to expand on their points and for me, learning about Othering and liminality was a lot easier when the examples used were from my favourite TV show.

I would recommend this to Supernatural fans who are interested in the deeper meanings of certain scenes and dialogue in the show, and especially to anyone who studies English. Enjoy!

Decent but not always correct 9 Dec. 2011
By Tammy Suto - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's an interesting book with some very unique takes and opinions on things, from the characters, the things they do, etc. However, some details that are crucial, things that huge and dedicated fans will recgonize, aren't always correct. The make of the Impala was stated at a 1968 when it's a 1967 and the quote from the pilot episode where Sam's telling Dean that he needs to update his cassette tape collection is wrong. Several words were replaced from what Sam actually said. A minor thing that most people might not notice but it would be to those few.

They lost me at 68 Impala 8 Dec. 2011
By rehabber - Published on
Format: Paperback
I would think since the Impala is a character in the show, the writer would know it is a 67 and NOT a 68. Makes me leary about getting the book.

It's a good book, honest. 6 Mar. 2012

Yes, there was a typo concerning the brothers' car. It was fixed. Can we move on now? In any case, the essays in this book were very interesting. I'm not afraid to admit some of the terms and points went over my head, but for the most part, I enjoyed seeing the TV show analyzed. Some of the conclusions drawn were fascinating. That such a wide variety of people enjoy the same show is amazing. In all, I'd recommend this book for hardcore fans, casual viewers of the show will probably find the essays a bit dry.

Very Entertaining! 19 Jun. 2012
By Mike in Elmhurst - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An enjoyable book with some interesting essays about the excellent and entertaining TV series, Supernatural. Some of the essays are a written just a little bit over-the-top scholarly (um, that's politesse for "pretentious") but regardless, each one is an interesting read and several are superlative. That there is such serious writing about Supernatural is a tribute to the series and a testament to how well-done Supernatural is. I have enjoyed it very much. It arrived in no time and in excellent condition.

Eye of the Tiger 14 April 2012
By Kelly - Published on
Format: Paperback
Have you ever reached blindly into the fridge for your drink , expecting it to be - lets say Mountain Dew - and instead swallowed something else - we'll go with coconut milk? Do you remember the shock? The bit of throw-up you swallowed immediately after? The promise to yourself that you will never, EVER, drink before looking? That's kind of how this went down, with the swapping out of a serious headache in place of the vomit.

I expected a companion piece to the show, Supernatural. A more in-depth look at the show itself, the characters, etc. You know, the hows and whys of it all delivered in a fun, but informative way. Like Ovaltine; tasty, but healthy. What I received instead was a philosophical breakdown of each and every aspect of the show in the format of a college thesis. Now, don't get me wrong, it's not that the book itself was bad; it was simply not what I had anticipated. Geared more towards Sociology, Anthropology and Philosophy enthusiast, this books breaks down the show Supernatural and examines the remnants to such a degree that for anyone else to enjoy it, in my opinion, would require a grocery list only Hunter S. Thompson could provide.

So, that being said, the ratings are as follows:

5 - For fans that enjoy sitting around analyzing the layers upon layers of hidden meanings, religious aspects, archetypes both present and absent, and what each reveal about our society as a whole - both past, present, and future- of popular fiction (ie. The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galactica). I will say, though it was a struggle for me at times, it was very informative; raising some valid questions and answering plenty of lingering ones that I didn't even know I had.

3 - For fans of Supernatural who want to add to their collection of memorabilia, were given a "shout out" in an essay and want to show their mom, or who really, really love them some Dean and Sam. Otherwise, wait for a more...fluffier version to be published.
