The Quotable Slayer

From the very beginning, Buffy's snappy, sparkling dialogue and incisive insight into the human condition has been acclaimed by critics and fans alike. 'Writing as good as that for Hill Street Blues, The Simpsons or...Alan Bleasdale at his best' said the Guardian as far back as season one. 'The only show outside Larry Sanders where you rewind to confirm that the wit was ...more

I got this from, and once I received it, I devoured the lot within 24 hours. It's a great book for dipping in and out of, reading a few quotes whenever there's a spare few seconds to fill. There's quotes from all the favourite characters, from all seven series, and each one took me back to the episode it came from. One I will probably enjoy again and again.

Here it is, fellow fans of quite possibly the best television series about the supernatural ever conceived -- all your favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode lines from all seven seasons (or pretty damned near), organized by topic and character. I've seen just about every episode several times now, and I still find myself leafing through this for choice jokes, snaps and comebacks from Buffy, Xander, Willow and the gang. Now if they would only put out a companion volume to do the same for Ange ...more

This book reminded me of better days when there was Buffy and the Scooby Gang. Reading these quotes, I could hear the sarcastic comebacks said by each person and loved it all. A good trip down memory lane which made me want to watch the entire series all over again. BTVS was Joss Whedon's masterpiece that can never be duplicated or topped.

Love it!!!

I read this book after I re-watched all episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV Series, so when I read the quotes I can pictures the acts in my head and how the actors said them.

I love the TV series because its witty and funny dialogues, and this book compiled the sharpest, most telling, and memorable quotes from the show. Just the way I like it!

It's like a Buffy bible, although there are some quotes that never made the cut which is disappointing. And my copy is utterly TRASHED because something strange must have infected it and it COMPLEEEEETELY fell apart. I refuse to throw it away though - especially as I can't find it in stores anymore and it is seriously the greatest memorabilia!

There were at least 2 quotes I noticed that were attributed to the wrong characters. Since the whole point of the book was to list quotes from the show, you'd think they've have been a little more careful.

Recommended to Marque by: the library (seriously, on a recommended reading display)
As embarrassing as it is that I made a slight return to the geekdom of fan-generated literature, it was a fun read.
It is what it sounds like, a book of quotes from the series. A walk down memory lane.
My only critiques:
Not enough Anya quotes!
Too many Riley quotes.
so my best friend gave me this for my birthday because this summer i decided to get through all seven seasons on my computer. i pretty much became obsessed and she gave it to me. i was pumped and i love this book it has the best and funniest quotes ever!

i wasn't crazy about the way it was organized but it at least gives you the references along with the quote. of course, for a diehard fan like me, a book will always leave out things we think should've been included but overall, fun.

All the bits of Buffy that made you laugh out loud in one place - what's not to love? One warning will make you want to watch the entire series again.
