I really enjoyed this, it invoked the show so well for me, it s the first of the Angel books I ve read, and if they all do as good a job as this does of portraying the characters it won t be the last This was my first TV series novelization I read and I was pleasantly surprised It made for a fun read and actually reads very much like a TV episode Don t expect complex plots or character development Good for a quick, fun read. I just liked the cover. Good concept, but the writing was a little uneven a couple of scenes just didn t flow right.
