    One thought on “Buffy: The Journals of Rupert Giles, Vol. 1”

    1. Absolutely loved it. I know a lot of people seem to be disappointed with books that are just novelisations of episodes but I love them especially when they are well done like this one. When they are done right I can see the episodes in my head and it's great.For this particular book it was three of the Buffy birthday episodes Season 3's Helpless, Season 4's A New Man and Season 5's Blood Ties.All of tales are told from Gile's perspective of how he worries for Buffy every year as slayer's tend to [...]

    2. A novelization of three episodes with the slight slant of Giles's perspective in flashback mode and a contrived plot tying them together. A quick read that evokes some nostalgia for the show (ie. ohh, that was a good moment).

    3. Basically just a novelization of three episodes -- if you've seen the episodes, you've seen most of the material here. Kind of disappointing.
