I do have to say my curiosity made me skip to read the essays on the Impala first, before going back to read from the beginning to end. I thought all of the essays were informative and some of essays were just plain hilarious too. I would find myself either mentally nodding along in agreement with the essays or finding even more connections and interesting points that I hadn't considered or noticed before. I also found myself having an even greater appreciation for all of the efforts of the writers' in tying in all the mythology/folklore into a show that's not just a monster-of-the-week show.
I think anyone who enjoys digging into the nuances of the show would like this book. Hopefully, after a few more seasons and/or the show ends, they'll be another book that explores everything that has happened since this book was published.
However, I would only recommend this book to diehard fans of the show. If you obsess about Supernatural and are interested in the opinions of fellow fans, you should definitely check this book out.
There are some great essays in here. And sadly some terrible ones. But it's a discussion book, not a fact book so I discount the fact I disagree with some of the statements in it.
One essay I particularly disliked was by Dodger Winslow wherein she used a million parenthesis to compare the reader to Sammy saying we wished we were Dean but were actually Sammy because-....Well, I got lost so many times reading it I couldn't figure out what she was trying to say exactly. In short what I got was she was what some fans call a 'Sam Girl' I guess? And she didn't really like Dean that much. Which I'm sure is not the conclusion she was aiming for but sadly the one I came to.
Essays I loved:
Tanya Huff's "We're Not Exactly the Bradys" was interesting. A bit on John Winchester who wasn't the best father, was possibly not even a GOOD father all the time but he wasn't bad.
I adored Tanya Michaels' "Dean Winchester: Bad-Ass. . . or Soccer Mom?" especially because it suggested some great things I'd never even thought of about Dean.
"Another Roadside Attraction" by Maria Lima was possibly one of my favorites because she covers the Trickster aspect so well. There was so much more meat in those trickster episodes than I'd expected and reading her essay really clued me in. Loved it.
I may come back and add more but so far I'm really enjoying the book!
