It is crazy that Dean and I broke up. Things were going great between us. I mean, he tells me he loves me one minute, then the next minute he breaks up with me. My mom thinks I should wallow and stuff my face with junk food, but I'm not so sure that's the answer. And let's face it, when it comes to relationships, my mom doesn't always show the best judgment, especially if ...more

Again, this book wasn't a great literary piece or anything. But, I love the Gilmore Girls and really am enjoying having a way to see it from another view. While this one follows the show closely, it is still nice to have to picture it while I am reading. On to the next!!

Three stars for the same reason as the first title. I've decided to read the next one in the series, but not the 4th. I can't help it, I like Dean more than Jess.

The Gilmore Girls books are almost the scripts to Gilmore Girls the show. The Gilmores (Rory and Loralei) have the most unorthodox mother/daughter relationship. Loralei the mother, had her daughter Rory at the age of sixteen. When her parents found out she ran away from home to go work asa maid and live in the greenhouse of a local inn, The Independence Inn. After she had the baby, Rory, Loralei worked her way up to becoming manager of the inn. Soon after she divorced her husband, Christopher, a ...more

I love the TV-show, and have seen most episodes several times. Therefore all the things in the book were very familiar. Many dialogues are exactly the same, only difference to the show is that this book is written from Rory's perspective and therefore only recounts events that she took part in.

One could argue that a book that is exactly like the show is useless. Well, it must not be. Lots of teenage girls that might wouldn't read otherwise but pick up this little short book because they like the

I Love You, You Idiot is a novelization of the first season of Gilmore Girls episodes "That Damn Donna Reed," "Christopher Returns," "Star-Crossed Lovers and Other Strangers," "The Break-Up, Part 2," and "P.S. I LO..." adapted by Cathy East Dubowski.

It was cool to relive Gilmore Girls episodes in a novel. I liked it, but the only thing that I didn't really like was that it's from the point of view of Rory only. It would've been better if it was shifting from Rory's to Lorelei's prespectives. Ove
Reading this was just like watching an episode of "Gilmore Girls". The author did a good job with keeping the characters in character which can sometimes be a little difficult with media tie-in books. The characters are sometimes a little off.

The story was an adaptation of several episodes but it was told in one seamless story.

Skip the books and just watch the show. The dialogue does not work in print, it's meant to be spoken given the speed and banter of it. The book also doesn't add anything more to the episodes it covers. I'm glad I only read this because my husband bought it for me as a joke... hopefully for no more than $1!

I bought this for a quarter at a used bookstore because I love the T.V. show Gilmore Girls. The novel is basically the show from Rory's perspective both in storyline and line for line. I miss Lorelai's side of the story a lot.

Usually I don't like books based on tv or movies but this screenwriter is HILARIOUS!!!
More Gilmore Girls from Rory's point of view.

It was what I expected... a compilation of several episodes of Gilmore Girls, in book form.

I never liked Dean..

Cute, but watch the show if you're interested. The book is very abridged and only gives Rory's side, so you miss half the story!

Ganz nett für zwischendurch aber irgendwie ist die Reihenfolge der Bücher mehr als fraglich. Der Titel sollte eher Gilmore Girls 2 lauten aber Kenner der Serie wissen dennoch, wo es lang geht ;)

I love the Telivison show so i was dissapointed to read the books, which are only from Rori's point of view. Her moms the funny one that makes the show asome. :(

Exactly like the episode but you get to see how Rory is feeling and what happens in missing parts of the episode.
