Full of Diana's great sense of humor,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Outlandish Companion (Hardcover)
I have to admit that when I first heard that Diana was coming out with a companion, I thought it would just be a filler. But in reality it's a gracious and humorous way of deflecting the oft-repeated questions of her fans and at the same time a wonderful glimpse into her personal life. I've enjoyed reading everything by Diana, from her on-line chats to interviews to everything on her web-page, and I still find the Companion a satisfying and intriguing addition to the novels. To those who are disappointed in it, don't fret so much. As others have said, you don't have to buy it, it's very clear from the book itself and reviews of it that it is indeed a Companion and *not* a continuation of the novels. So don't complain. Diana certainly doesn't owe us anything.
I have thoroughly enjoyed discovering more about an author who also manages to be happily married, raise children, cook (loved the recipes!), keep animals, go to church, tell us all exactly how she writes, and answer many a clueless question, among countless other things. She has inspired me to do more and learn more.
