It's 2015, and I just finished watching "The Sopranos." As our president once said, "So sue me."

Cognizant that the ending of "The Sopranos" was controversial or ambiguious, I've avoided Sopranos knowledge, imploring those who've watched it not to reveal the end to the final episode, as if it was a football game already played and I was about to watch it on DVR. I've seen the end (no comment), and now I can read the books. I've gone through several, they're all about the same.

The books do clarify

This is NOT an analytical treatise on the series. This book is a CELEBRATION of the series and for that, it scores HUGE!

Uninterrupted interviews with cast members, lavish full page, full colour photographs of scenes and locations, articles zeroing in on themes through the show, etc, this is an absolutely essential hard back for the Sopranos fan!

I utterly adore this book!

Goes into detail about how the series was written, casted, filmed, edited, the post production, how the set locations were found or created @ Silvercup Studios, the lighting, how the source music/score was selected, the attention to detail in the costumes and catering and the props that are stored in a huge warehouse. Basically this book is an easy read, with very rich images. Not only is is an easy read, but here you have a collection of the school of thought that went into creating my favorite ...more

Ok, I confess, I love the HBO show The Sopranos, primarily because the characters are so well developed.

Just when you think Tony Soprano is a kind, sensitive guy, babba bing, he "wastes" a rival. Just when you have compassion for Pauly Walnuts, slam bang, he dumps a body in the New Jersey pine barrens. Just when Carmela appears to be a conflicted soul regarding her husband's profession, whalla, her shallowness is manifested by the cushy life style she embraces.

This coffee table sized book is rep

Excellent behind-the-scenes look at how possibly the best TV series ever (vying for first place with Breaking Bad) was put together. Lots of insights into the characters, the actors who played them and the writers who created them.

The color choices in printing make it hard to read, black on gray, and ick - red on gray - almost impossible. Also, the words behind words is cool visually...but they should have upped the font size of the paragraphs to make them legible.

Cool pics, good coffee table book, I got way bored and left it about for a bit...but then went back and devoured it. I want to watch the whole series again, so I guess it's effective! I especially enjoyed the Episode Guide in the back.

A brilliant book that you can either just look at and admire for the sheer beauty of its design and the great photos or read and find out some really great information and anecdotes about the greatest TV show ever made. An essential book for any true Sopranos fanatic.

Obviously not a great literary work, but if you were into the Sopranos it has some really cool anecdotes and insights into some of the imagery within the episodes.
