Joss Whedon: The Biography by Amy Pascale and Nathan Fillion


This long, entertaining biography is jam packed with information, giving you tidbits of Joss Whedon's life before and after BTVS (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) the series not the movie. It is my opinion that BTVS is his best work.  The whendonverse is in its prime, the pop culture is superb and the story lines are fantastic.

This biography details both his success and failures. His works on BTVS, Angel,  Serenity, Firefly and Dollhouse are examined, much of the attention give to BTVS. His movies such as the original BTVS and Cabin in the Woods are also explored.

This "behind the scenes" look into, Whedon's life is well written and thoroughly researched, however some parts of the book didn't hold my interest and I found myself skimming pages. Joss Whedon is a master storyteller and this is a great read for his fans.

Grade: B+
