scary, pithy, profound, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has
delighted its legions of fans over seven seasons with its
quick fire dialogue and offbeat insight into the human -and
non human condition. Now
for all lovers of Buffy's wicked wordplay comes an exhaustive
collection of the sharpest, most telling and often poignant
quotes from the Emmy nominated show...
by character and subject and fully illustrated in both black
and white and colour, this crucial compendium of wit and wisdom
is a book which will be referred to again and again.
It's not the kind of book that you can sit and read through
from front to back in one sitting, but that doesn't make it
a bad book. The Quotable Slayer is a fun book full
of quotes from the Buffster herself, as well as the Scooby
gang, the Big Bads and more.
It's great to flick through, and if you're in the mood to
just pick it up and have a look, you're pretty sure to find
something that'll make you laugh or that you had forgotten
was in an excellent episode from the show. It'll probably
have you getting your DVDs and Videos out to watch some of
the episodes you haven't seen in a long time.
intro explains the impact that the show had over the years,
and it's not wrong:
can be argued that BtVS
will go down in pop-culture history as a television show
that subverted conventions, crossed genres and redefined
gender roles, raising the bar for the next wave of programming.
Though the titles suggests an easily dismissed concept,
those who tuned in were instantly drawn to rich, complex
characters, an organic mythology and some of the sharpest,
savviest and most unique TV writing around. The fabrication
of new words, the reappropriation of existing ones, and
a complete disregard for conventional usage are hallmarks
and the show's eminently quotable language has spawned a
cult following fluent in Buffy-speak.
little book is sure to become an indisputable reference for
the true Buffy-phile, and likely to find it's way on
to many a shelf.
