Review: Best served cold

Rec-ex from NetGalley.

The perfect book for everyone whom loves the TV-show Revenge since you get a lot of good information according to me.

NetGalley describes the book:

A critical and commercial hit, Revenge has a rabid and rapidly growing fan base. It’s consistently the #1 show in its timeslot and it’s ABC’s biggest primetime hit since Lost, the first series in four years to match that show’s success in the coveted 18-49 demographic. 

A fast-paced and complicated character-driven show with many plot twists and unanswered questions, fans will welcome insight and analysis into Emily Thorne’s master plan in this intelligent but playful companion to the series. Explorations of themes, characters, the show’s soapy and literary inspirations, and real-world events make this the must-have book for everyone who is watching Revenge.

What I think about the book:

I think it was really good since it gave me a lot of information about how it went when they have the castings and you also learned about the actors.

Something that I thought was interesting to read in this book is how they draw parables to other books and how they draw parables of roles from Alexandre Dumas's book The Count of Monte Cristo.
You can not just see the similarities from books but also from television and movies, such as Dallas, Dynasty and Knots Landing.

In The Count of Monte Cristo, it is Dante who get scammed and lose everything and the Revenge is David Clarke but instead of David Clarke comes back to get his revenge as Dante, it is rather his daughter "Emily Thorne".

To find out more, I think you should get the book and read it if you like Revenge as much as I do.

You can get the book atAmazon.
Grade: 5 out of 5

Thanks for the book:)
