it was ok

This was okay. I read it for a research project, so I was really hoping for a lot more behind-the-scenes information than there was. The majority of the book consists of year-by-year recounts of storylines, interspersed with sections on short character profiles. It might make a nice coffee table book for an uber fan, but there's not a great deal of depth. Even in the longest backstage section, the focus is on obvious details like how little time off the actors have, and how all their wardrobes and make-up are from the high street... not Earth-shattering stuff. Still, my disappointment is based on my erroneous preconception of what this book was about. If I'd come to it wanting to read twenty years worth of EastEnders plots (not sure why I would have, but still...) it would have been perfectly serviceable.
