TONIGHT, PART 1The argument started when Cordelia saw what Xander was wearing.

He had only just walked into the Bronze when Cordy started in on him. "My "God, " what is that outfit?"

"It's called 'clothes.'"

"No, "I'm" wearing clothes. "You" are wearing rags. Xander, do you even know what it means to accessorize?"

Shaking his head and rolling his eyes at the same time, Xander

I know, ok? A novelization of 3 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: one star. WTF did I expect right?

I just didn't know novelizing a teleplay meant copying the dialogue directly and in between lines describing exactly what happened on screen with no alteration whatever. You'd think he'd add SOME original material. Is this even legal?

Anyway it was a gift.

This book consists of three stories about Xander Harris, and for any Buffy fan you will recall the episodes, "Teachers Pet", "Inca Mummy Girl" and "Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered". Reading this was like watching the episodes all over again except for being in the Head of Xander Harris and hearing some of his thought process.
I would have preferred something new or the author to go a little more in depth within each story, but it was a nice reminder of the show.

Great fun! This recaps some of the best Xander episodes from the TV series. Poor Xander doesn't have too much luck in his love life, first he's the victim of a giant praying mantis. Then falls for an Incan mummy princess. And last, but not least, learns you should never use magic when it comes to love.

This is another great novelisation of three classic Buffy episodes, this time with Xander's chaotic love life as the theme. As one of my favourite characters, I loved reading his adventures in this way, reminded me of why I loved the series so much.

At first, I wasn't sure if I wanted to read stories based on a television show, even a show I like. But as I continued reading, I started to enjoy reading about Xander's misadventures and finding out how he saw things and what he thought.
