Download Epub Format ç In the Hunt: Unauthorized Essays on Supernatural PDF by æ Leah Wilson I picked up this book mostly for the essay on fanworks and Wincest That essay was absolutely brilliant, although it could have been longer, and several of the other essays were equally well written and interesting A couple of the essays were confusing, including the one that had so many parentheses The one from the point of view of hypothetical monsters watching Supernatural was really kind of awkward for some reason There are also a good portion of these essays that have been made incorrect or obsolete in regards to the current show A reader thinking back to only the first three seasons will find themselves agreeing with much that is said I, for one, hope that they come out with another set of essays, at least some with similar themes or subjects, that account for the canon information given in seasons 4 and 5.

This book is fantastic Aside from how it only covers the first three seasons, which, while terrific, don t TOUCH how amazing the show becomes once angels are introduced Badly in need of a sequel.

I enjoyed most of this book very much and especially enjoyed the essays on the role of the Trickster and the one exploring the research sources the Winchesters use Other essays were redundant we KNOW the boys have daddy issues We don t need 3 nearly identical papers to point out the very obvious whys of it or just plain bad The one written from a monster s POV read like a high school creative writing assignment Be aware that this book was compiled before the airing of season 4, so much of the discussion the essays raise are very different than they are now just saying.
I d really give this a 3 1 2 if I could I did like it, but some of the essays were just eh, not so great But then others were quite well done One thing is for sure, though it is definitely not a book of critical academic essays.
Basically, this is a book for Supernatural nerds.
It s basically a book of meta which I really have no interest for I thought it was going to beacademic.
a fun read for Supernatural SPN fans I have been avoiding the Smart Pop books because of a bad experience with their book on Pride and Prejudice However, they ve redeemed themselves with this collection of essays on the TV show Supernatural Because these essays were written between the third and fourth season, and the show has just finished its tenth season, it should come as no surprise that these essays are outdated and deal with only a fraction of the major themes If you can overlook this fact, there is plenty to enjoy about theses essays In many of these books that deal with the blending of pop culture and academia, I get this uncomfortable sense that the essayists are working off some template the same examples and scenes are used over and over I did not get this sense from this book It feels like the essayists are using the source material to come up with examples and their own rec The majority of essays in this book I found to be fun and great Some were even thought provoking for me coming at various storylines, characters, relationships, plot twists, etc from a vantage point that I had never even thought of before That being said, there were a few essays where the writing was done in such a way that it completely distracted me and was hard to follow and understand And also a few essays that I just downright totally and completely disagreed with Sometimes on religion, also, I have NEVER been a fan of Wincest, it ruins the muchbeautiful in my personal opinion , bromance familial bond stronger than any romantic love I ve also never been for Destiel as anything than a, again, bromance adopted familial The Smart Pop series tends to vary wildly in quality and In The Hunt is no exception But for the most part the essays were clever and readable and I enjoyed it as much as you can enjoy anything about Supernatural that doesn t have pictures of Jensen Ackles in it Jacob Clifton s Spreading Disaster is a really interesting take on the feminine in what would appear to be an outwardly very masculine verse The essays by Carol Poole Who Threw Momma on The Ceiling and Emily Turner Scary Just Got Sexy fanfic and slash, yeah are particularly good There s also a couple of duds that make for cringeworthy reading Heather Swan s A Supernatural Love Story was obviously included by accident But this stands up to Seven Seasons of Buffy and Finding Serentity easily, and is far better than Five Seasons of Angel Now we just need an updated version that covers the most recent three seasons bring it o
