Bravo, Mr. Reed. Bravo.

This book succeeded by miles what the other Supernatural books failed at- a real emotional connection. John's was too distant most of the time, and the guide narrated by Sam and Dean was severely lacking in either of their respective personalities, but Bobby Singer's Guide to Hunting was just right.

First of all, the voice of narration is spot. fucking. on. You read it in Bobby's voice- his cadence, his vernacular, his razor-sharp wit on top of a "good ol' boy" demeanor. A

Supernatural is one of my favorite shows. Ever.
The moment I found this book on goodreads, I had to have it, I just had to, and I am glad I did because it was AWESOME!

If you are still behind in Supernatural, then this review might spoil the show for you

Bobby is.. was… one of my favorite characters on the show & despite the fact that I love Supernatural all 9 seasons of it, it just hasn't been the same without Bobby.. :c

Kudos to the writer because his writing of Bobby's character is spot

I'm a big lover of the Supernatural TV show, and this was a great addition to it! Bobby Singer is one of my favourite characters on the show, and I thought that the writing style and the way it was wrote fit his character really well. It would be amazing if there was an audiobook with Jim Beaver, the actor who plays Bobby, doing the voiceover!

One of my favourite things about this book was that we got to learn a lot about how Bobby got into the hunting life, and his early days as a hunter in Jap

I think it's really cool because it doesn't just give you cool facts so you can finally get an A on a supernatural quiz but it ads personality to the book of how bobby singer is in the show
This is such a fun read. Not because it isn't dark or heavy (it is) but because it's Bobby. I could imagine every sentence from this book read in Jim Beaver's grumpy voice because it's perfectly written for his character. We find out more about Bobby's past, about his wife, about Rufus while a suspenseful amnesia-plot is kind of going on in the back and keeps up the tension until the last few pages. If you've watched the show (which you should've when you're reading this book, duh) you'll know m ...more

It was so Bobby that it really did feel like Bobby was talking to me, which is so rare in a novel because you're so self aware of the author and you praise them for their excellent characterisation and you thank them but rarely is the voice so on point and so good that you totally forget an author is behind it. I am so utterly amazed.

My fave part had to be when he was talking about Rufus, when he mixed up an hex bag in making all the women fall for him so that he just thinks everyone is forward

Bobby Singer is my favorite character on Supernatural, so when I heard there was a book that was all about his life as a hunter, of course I had to read it. I devoured it faster than the tie-in novels, that for the most part have a tendency to be missing something that makes me feel like it could be set within the timeframe of the show. This book actually feels like an episode of Supernatural, and David Reed does an excellent job of capturing the voices of Bobby and Dean Winchester.

This felt like Bobby was actually writing it! This was brilliant.

Parts of this felt like it was a textbook, but I loved the was that the info was broken up by stories of Bobby's life as a hunter, with people like Rufus, Ellen and of course John, Sam and Dean.

The final couple of chapters by Dean weren't so great - they didn't have enough character in them for me.

This is a great companion to the TV show

I love the show, Supernatural, and have a handful of books written about the show. I don't bother with the fiction books, but go more for the informational books, like The Supernatural Book of Monsters, Demons, Spirits and Ghosts. I collect info on all sorts of paranormal info and add books like that to my quite large collection. (If anyone ever needs to know anything about some supernatural monster/being/creature, I've got notebooks full of info and research books highlighted and underlined!!)
