From 2000 to its final episode in 2007, Gilmore Girls raised the bar for television writing, redefined the dramatic comedy, and cultivated a dedicated fan base not seen since the heights of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

When I first found out about The Gilmore Girls Companion, elation quickly turned to devastation when I realised that it couldn’t yet be bought in the United Kingdom. Four long months later, I received it as a birthday gift and eagerly began reading about a world I knew well and loved dearly.

Although unauthorised, The Gilmore Girls Companion should not be perceived as a money-making scheme created to exploit the Gilmore Girls’ large fanbase, but a well thought out project headed by A.S. Berman. T
I was looking fwd to reading this book but ended up disappointed. Most of the content is quotes from the show, not all are completely correct. The only part I read was the sidebars and small boxes and even those didn't give much insight into the production of the show or had any behind-the-scenes stories from the cast.
Super disappointed. I was really looking forward to insights and trivia of the show but this book is not that. The book is a really nice size and jam packed with information, the likes of which I can't imagine the effort it took to compile but, it is simply an episode regurgitation of scenes and quotes. Scenes and quotes I get on my own by watching the show. The writing was poor; acronyms were not explained and personal quotes were sometimes so long and out of context that I couldn't figure out ...more
This is great for all the bits and pieces that went on backstage, however, it's very much like a text book and hard to read at times. You should read it if you are a die hard fan though.
A decent enough look behind the scenes of the TV show and a fairly average episode guide, which mostly consists of dialogue quotes. The show creators as well as most of the show top stars actually refused to give interviews for this book, so it's both unofficial and sometimes a little too much on the fan-perspective side, but still there are enough quotes from people involved with the show and interesting descriptions of how the production was done to make a fan's time worthwhile.
This book is perfect for a Gilmore Girls fan. It talks about the whole series. There is something on every episode and every character of the show.
Too many spoilers.
