  1. Maximum B. Says:

    Summary:
    As you would expect with a biography, Joss Whedon: The Biography by Amy Pascale walks you through Whedon’s life from when he was a creative teenager, to the release of the very successful Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. Whedon’s first big success was Buffy the Vampire Slayer, however, Joss wasn’t the first person in his family to become big in Hollywood, nor was he the second. Joss’ father Thomas Whedon was a television writer whose projects included Captain Kangaroo and The Golden Girls, which were both big hits at the time. Joss’ Grandfather John Whedon also wrote popular TV shows like The Dick Van Dyke Show. Amy Pascale continues to hit on all of Whedon’s big money makers. Some of his works that are noteworthy include the TV series Firefly which was tragically canceled by Fox, Serenity, which is a follow up movie to Firefly, The Cabin in the Woods, The Avengers, and many more.

    Evaluation:
    Overall, I think Amy Pascale did a great job presenting Whedon’s life in this biography. As a big fan of most of his works, it was very interesting to read about the creation of Firefly and his other works. I give this book a ⅘ and would highly recommend reading it if you are a fan of Joss Whedon and his many amazing TV shows and movies.

    Recommendations: One book I would recommend reading if you enjoy the genre of Whedon’s works is Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It is a very exciting adventure book with too many references to old TV shows and movies to count. If you are a fan of Firefly, I suggest you pick up Firefly: The Official Companion. This book gives many behind the scenes info that you most likely have not seen before.
