Recommends it for: no one
I bought this book for a quarter probably 5 years ago as a sad, weird joke with myself. I tried to tell myself I wasn't really buying it to read it, but I knew the day would come. I'm not certain what I expected—maybe a nostalgic jaunt through some strangely comforting stories—but this book was so bad. It is a bland and essentially shot-for-shot description of the first 6 episodes of the show—somehow with less insight into the characters, despite the freedom of it's meandering omniscient third-p ...more

Recommends it for: Fans of The OC
I used to be a huge fan of The OC (probably still am, I just haven't watched it in years) and I bought this book a very long time ago. It was only this year when I found it again and I did enjoy reading it.

It gives a greater insight into the characters you learn to love on the screen.

Unfortunately I got carried away with swapping all my books and gave this one away!

I was mildly interested in reading this book since the blurb promised me 'the story behind the story'. Well if this is what is behind the story, I'm surprised there is a story at all. This woeful narrative was nothing more than a poor retelling of the first few episodes of the television series, with poorer dialogue and the added burden of poor exposition. Martin is in dire need of learning the expression 'show, don't tell', and I'm afraid this is all he did, trundling from scene to scene in a m ...more

Amazing book. I hope to read the rest. Characters definitely didn't look like what I expected. I hope to watch the movie and read the rest of the series. Lovin' it.

It's pretty disjointed, but if you've seen the show as much as I have you get it.

Seth never did take Summer to Tahiti. Sad.

Ay, lloro, me ha encantado, ha sido como volver a ver la serie. Aunque Marissa y Ryan son insoportables x1000000 por escrito, PERO SETH Y SUMMER *________*

“- Ich gehöre einfach nicht richtig hierher.
- Ich glaube, ich muss dir was erklären: Das tut eigentlich keiner. Ich garantiere dir, dass jedem Einzelnen auf diesem Ball nicht ganz wohl in seiner Haut ist. Sie haben alle ihre Geheimnisse und zittern davor, dass die anderen ihnen auf die Schliche kommen.
- Das muss ja großen Spaß machen. - bemerkte Ryan und dachte an die Geheimnisse, von denen er wusste. Luke und Nikki. Marisas Vater.
- Die haben einen der schönsten Plätze der Welt genommen und ein richtiges Gefängnis daraus gemacht.”
