Joss Whedon once identified himself as an "angry, hard-line atheist" who is nevertheless "fascinated by the concept of devotion." While organized religion seems to hold no satisfactory answers for Whedon, his dedication to exploring the meanings of faith and belief can be seen in many of the characters he has created for such works as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firef ...more

I was about to type in my review from the notes that I took while reading the book; however, my cup of tea spilled over onto my notes rendering the pages pretty much useless.

Yet another book that I'm on the fence about (because that is the story of my life right now). I haven't watched Firefly beyond two episodes. so I stuck to the chapters about Buffy and Angel and, while I usually love studying the metaphors in these TV shows, I felt like this book only scratched the surface and was at times long-winded. But I'm also not that interested in religion, so maybe that played a part....

While the subject matter is interesting, the execution of the book is lacking. The observations don't go much beyond the surface level and rarely dig into what any of this *means* on a deeper level than "isn't this nifty!" Likewise, there's an odd balance of too much information--particularly when it comes to explaining histories, theoretical approaches, or the finer points of a religious belief; it feels that Koontz doesn't trust the reader to know some of these things and must be informed of t ...more
