Praise for the television series "Veronica Mars"

A "Time", " Entertainment Weekly", and "Salon" Best Show of the Year

"Nancy Drew meets Philip Marlowe, and the result is pure nitro." --Stephen King

"Best. Show. Ever. Seriously, I've never gotten more wrapped up in a show I wasn't making, and maybe even more than those. . . . These guys know what they're doing on a level that intimidates me. It's the "Harry Potter" of shows." --Joss Whedon, creator of "Buffy "and writer/director of Marvel's "The Avengers
"
"Classic California film noir. . . . Raymond Chandler in its writing." --"The Seattle Times
"
"Sharp wits, steely nerves, and a wicked sense of humor. . . . This is one TV case we don't want to see closed."--"USA Today"

"It's what lies deeper that not only makes the show remarkable but what defines it. Mysteries are its central metaphor; Veronica solves little puzzles because she, like all of us, cannot unravel the bigger ones. . . . Filled with deft, glorious wit." --"Entertainment Weekly"

Okay this review will not be elegant or pithy, i tell you this upfront. But it will be honest. And honestly this book is good, really good. If you have seen the movie then it starts more or less straight after. And brilliantly does not concern itself with possible plots for a sequel to the movie ( fingers crossed) it starts a whole new mystery and it was clever and engaging and i devoured it a 2 hour sitting. i for one cannot wait for the next book - that being said it is a pricey paperback, i hope they reflect that in subsequent pricing. But i think you will enjoy it - i definitely did.

"It's everything you would expect from a Veronica Mars case. It has so many unexpected twists and turns, but more importantly: it has Veronica Mars. I mean, how fantastic is she? (...) there really was no awkward transition from page to screen", is what I wrote after reading the first VMars book, The Thousand Dollar Tan Line and every word of it is true for Mr. Kiss and Tell as well. I think I might like Mr. Kiss and Tell better - didn't expect that was even a possibility.
I had my fingers crossed for more Logan Echolls in book II, and Rob Thomas & Jennifer Graham delivered beautifully. Just like Veronica, I have difficulty at times getting used to this "grown up Logan", but I'm still TEAM LOGAN all the way. They seem to fit better than ever and I can't wait to see what the future holds for them (so yes, I am expecting a third novel, Rob).
Not only do we get to see some brilliant Mars-detective work, we also see the wonderful Mac in action. Add some public humiliation for the Sheriff's department and Lamb and we've got a winner!
The case Veronica is working on seems to have more questions than answers, but Veronica doesn't let go. She feels responsible for the victim and she's not planning on stopping before the perp is behind bars. It's an incredibly thrilling case with a lot of loose ends, an elusive perp and a victim who's full of surprises herself, again set in Neptune where the class -war and corruption are the daily reality. But will there be a change soon?

If I was reading this just to read a book and not as a Veronica Mars fan, then I'd be rating it lower. The flow is a bit odd, there are a lot of references to/explanations of things from the TV series, and I'm not sure the characterisation would really come off without a knowledge of the TV series and film. I find I spend a lot of time when reading making myself read the characters' speech and actions as they'd come across on screen, rather than it coming across naturally. But, all in all, the books continue from the screen really well. I don't think anyone other than a Veronica Mars fan would want to read them, and for a Veronica Mars fan, they're great. I occasionally find some of the explanations or the attempts to describe in writing a mannerism or way of speech we're familiar with on screen jarring, but it's a really enjoyable read and a lovely way to be re-immersed in the Veronica Mars world. It's not just like extensive fan fiction, either; it's got a proper story and character development going on, in proper Veronica Mars style. And that's what's important, really.

This book, much more so than the previous one, really read to me like it could have been a whole season on TV, and it's a season I'd love to have seen. The book is wonderful for what it is, but it's over far too soon! And there seems like such potential for even more to go on. But if the books are all I can have, I will take it and love it.

As for what actually goes on in the book, the mystery's a good one. As ever, though, it's the character stuff that's more interesting and I'm loving reading about Veronica, Logan, Mac and the rest all grown up. All their changes feel completely natural and understandable.

I'm a huge Veronica Mars fan. There, I said it. I was incredibly sad when the show ended, ecstatic when the movie came out and now oh-so-relieved that this book didn't disappoint.
It's everything you would expect from a Veronica Mars case. It has so many unexpected twists and turns, but more importantly: it has Veronica Mars. I mean, how fantastic is she? Maybe Kristen Bell gives the on-screen Veronica that little extra "va va voom", but there really was no awkward transition from page to screen.
The story kicks off right where the movie left off. Veronica is back in Neptune at Mars Investigations. And let's face it, that's where we love her the most. She's clever, determined and a little reckless (as usual, right?), with Mac, Wallace and of course Keith loyally by her side. [Spoiler alert if you haven't seen the movie yet] Of course Logan is on a mission abroad so he's not really in the picture, but it still makes me really happy knowing they found each other again. Lucky for us, Marshmallow fans, this is the first book in a series, so I got my fingers crossed we'll see more of Logan in the following books.
So we're back in Neptune in time for spring break. The entire town is filled with (mostly drunk) college students having "the time of their lives". Even the report of a missing girl can't stop the partying. That's until Veronica Mars is hired for the job. She immediately sinks her teeth in and even a corrupt, lazy sheriff can't stop her (although let's face it, has a Lamb brother ever succeeded in 'keeping V. in check'?). The story is fast paced and keeps surprising you. It keeps you guessing (although V.
