The Simpsons: A _NOT_ Complete Guide to...
am 28. November 1997
For your average, less than 100%-devoted Simpsons-maniac, this book is definitely a great and useful source of fun and interesting facts. However, for a person that has already come across with clearly more comprehensive accounts (in the web, of course)on the episodes, the book contains little new information. The greatest disappointments were the absence of _numerous_ references and the difficulty in using the index (the indexed words are actually quite arduous to spot on the pages referred to). Also, the quotes should either have been complete or left out entirely. As it is, the absence of some of my favorite lines just makes me angry. As far as objectivity is concerned, I don't think the authors are the right party to put this kind of thing together. A group of people should first do the groundwork and then check the things they're not sure about from the actual authors. I don't deny Groening's genious, but as he is so close to the series, a certain clinicism/objectivity this book needs, is missing.
