Serenity: The Official Visual Companion

~by Joss Whedon

I will admit it now: I am a huge Firefly/Serenity fan.

That being said: The Official Visual Companion was a little disappointing and very satisfying at the same time. Being a "visual" companion, it had plenty of shiny photographs. Most of the text was made up of the original shooting script (the final release of the movie remained very close to the original script), and an interview with Joss Whedon, the creator and writer. (If you happen to watch the movie with commentary, you will recognize some of the same material.) Also included was a handful of vignettes about lighting, music, costuming, etc. I found the book to be very interesting, and gorgeous to look at, however, I wish there were more vignettes covered in greater detail.
