I was excited to read this, and continue Jarod's adventures from The Pretender. However, despite being written by the show's creators, this book does little better than a fan fiction story.

Rebirth by Steven Long Mitchell
"In short, this book sucked. There are spoilers for the book in the review, but they're things fans should know about before dropping any money or time on this waste of both.

The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
“...I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire...I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it.

William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury

Jack Kerouac
“Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk — real straight talk about souls, for life is holy and every moment is precious.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road
