A Wicked Purchase
on 9 August 2006
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I bought the Grimmerie, as my only points of reference were the cover, and amazon uk/us site reviews.
However, if anyone considers themselves a serious fan of the show, this is absolutely a must-have.
There is alot of detail on how the show was put togther, how it came to be from the first ideas of the plot in Maguire's head to a fully-fledged hit on Broadway.
The photos are fantastic, although most were nothing I hadn't seen before from promotional shots except for some like those of Elphie "getting green" and some special shots of the tour cast etc.
The detail that has gone into the book is wonderful and the size and material within it are well worth the price.
I was disappointed by nothing, and so thoroughly recommend it. It's a great companion book to the show, and I've not yet seen something quite like it, bar the Rent "bible" by Jonathon Larson. Hopefully it'll inspire other hit shows to do the same!
