this, the unauthorised guide to the first season of 24,
author Keith Topping scrutinises all 24 episodes and highlights
the characters, the plot twists, the influences and the great
moments, providing a commentary on the longest day of Jack
of you familiar with Toppings previous guide books will feel
right at home with A Day in the Life. All the familiar
sections are here and the look carries on from his wonderfully
constructed Stargate SG-1 Guide.
are some fantastically funny (not to mention very worthy)
additions to this guide book. These include Points at Which
Kim/Teri Needs a Slap (and there are many); You May
Remember Me From... (a guide to guest stars previous acting
appearances) and Soundtrack (which lists any musical
influences). There is also a question raised about just what

finish to the cover and the incredibly handy section index,

a TV interview Kiefer Sutherland unintentionally gave away
the surprise ending to one episode over a month before it
aired?) but it will also make you realise that nitpicking

guide books I have ever read. I can only hope that Topping
is making notes now for a follow up guide to the second season.
