Nádherně zpracovaná kniha, která je ve své podstatě "manuálem" k lodi Serenity, zkompilovaným a sepsaným samotnými členy posádky. Kromě relativně detailních průřezů, nákresů, schémat a plánků obsahuje také popisy jednotlivých sekcí lodi (včetně můstku, raketoplánů, strojovny, ale také záchranných modulů - věděli jste, že na Serenity jsou hned dva? - či přechodových komor). K nejčtivějším a nejvtipnějším pasážím patří poznámky, jimiž si členové posádky navzájem komentují své texty.

I'm not sure what this was trying to do or be other than to cash in on Firefly fandom. The notes in the margin from "the crew" were annoying at best. It was like having people talking behind you as you're trying to watch a movie. I wanted them to be fun, but they just weren't. There are schematics, but these are things we've seen in other books and far less detailed. There are bios of each character, which doesn't make sense if this is a tech manual. Each character "wrote" their own and only ...more

Really lovely execution and a lot of fun.
The illustrations and other graphic elements were great! The personalities and quirks of the crew came through. I could hear each distinctive voice. I often chuckled over comments.
Unfortunately I have intermittent issues with my eyesight, the fonts used for handwritten notes were impossible for me to decipher on bad vision days. I would probably give this book 4 stars if it had been easier to read.
To a fan of Firefly, this book will be well worth your

I wasn't sure what I expected with this book exactly, though it's usually a fair bet that I'll enjoy anything to do with Firefly. Marc Sumerak has done a wonderful job putting this together. I can hear the characters speaking the words that are supposed to be written by them, plus the overall 'scrapbook' idea of the book works really well and looks so good. I love it.

The ultimate guide to the 'verse, Serenity the Firefly-Class Series 3 Ship, the crew of Serenity, and all the personalities, places, and adventures you fell in love with watching the show. The scrapbook style and scribblings from the crew bring it to life, as does the photo album in the back. Would recommend for any and every person who ever loved Firefly and bears the badge of Browncoat.

An interesting book about the ship Serenity from the TV show Firefly and movie Serenity. Now this book is designed for and most likely would only appeal to fans of the show. It describes all aspects of the fictional ship from its engines to the configuration of the ship with comments from the characters of the show.

If you are a Browncoat I am sure you will enjoy this book.
