Coffee at Luke's: An Unauthorized Gilmore Girls Gabfest by Jennifer Crusie
I have mixed feelings about this book since I wanted to have an essay in it and they turned me down - Me! Don't they know who I am? In fact, I'm watching it in the corner of my screen as I'm writing this "The Festival of Living Art" from season 4, in case you're interested. Like other SmartPop books including This I I have mixed feelings about this book since I wanted to have an essay in it and they turned me down - Me! Subjects range from personal relationships including looks at fabulous secondary characters Kirk and Paris , to parenting with a spirited defence of To read the rest of the review, please visit http: Trying to get it downloaded onto a device I can read it on.
I have it on my phone, now. If I can get it on my Kindle I will be a very happy person for about 5 minutes, until something else comes along to annoy me. I wanted the Fire specifically to be able to take advantage of the extensive work elibrary. Now I've run into problems getting the sundry devices on Coffee at Luke's: Now I've run into problems getting the sundry devices onto the Wifi network.
It's not a big problem, just a little niggling one that's going to drag this whole thing out for the entire day. Not to name names, but the app for reading this on my phone was not convenient. But the essays, they are intriguing. But also, collectively a little clueless. So many contrast New England culture against [place where the author is now] which is utterly unlike Star's Hollow, for good and ill. I realize that Connecticut is the Land of WASPs, the place where Pilgrims get all the attention, but seriously, the lack of history re the entire rest of the nation was off-puttingly White-minded and just wrong.
No one should ever again get a book chapter out of ignoring 1 millennia of First Nations, 2 five hundred years of Norse, and English, and Irish exploration and settlement, mostly for the cod 3 French settlement in Acadia 3 more than two hundred years of Spanish exploration and colonization.
Seriously, Plymouth wasn't even the first permanent English colony in what is now the USA during the 17th century: Generally I love a pop culture essay. I enjoy someone taking a tv show seriously, seeing what it says about society, family, religion, adulthood. Of course, there are problems: Because there is no objective reality, everyone ends up writing not about the show, but about themselves.
It's a Rorschach test. Humans are social animals, and it desire to examine the related between us is just as strong when we're talking about imaginary people. In real life a person rarely has to choose between two romantic prospects, but as a mental exercise it makes us consider what is most important: Charm or loving actions? What do we need to be content? So, here I am, nothing like Lorelei, except I do live in a charming old small town, and I like junk food and old movies and coffee, and books examining what this all means.
Jun 04, Brittany Nelson rated it liked it. First of all, I was dead set on giving this book only two stars, but the truth is that the essays got better as I got further into it, so I'm giving it three. The problems I had with this book is that several of the essayists referred to themselves about a million times in the essay. Another problem I had was obviously the fact-checking--not to mention one essayists called Max Medina unattractive really?

And some of the essays were just poorly developed, I could write bet First of all, I was dead set on giving this book only two stars, but the truth is that the essays got better as I got further into it, so I'm giving it three. And some of the essays were just poorly developed, I could write better.
There are some essays that are really intriguing though: As she brings in, is Stars Hollow really stasis? Is Lorelai essentially her mother? And what does Lorelai really want? It's worth the read if you're obsessive and it makes you look at things on the show that you normally wouldn't look at, like food and books as a way of communication, or what the show has in common with the Golden Age of cinema. Jan 21, Elise rated it it was ok. Some authors contradict themselves--there's nothing to draw people to Stars Hollow so the Dragonfly would close, but the same author loves the Stars Hollow Museum and dioramas.
One author called out Jess Marino.
Someone else mentioned Goober Pyle of Mayberry. I assume she meant Gomer Pyle. What kind of fans are these ladies to miss basic information! And the "gabfest" in the title. Are Gilmore Girl fans incapable of having a discussion or analysis? In the gl Some authors contradict themselves--there's nothing to draw people to Stars Hollow so the Dragonfly would close, but the same author loves the Stars Hollow Museum and dioramas. In the glossary, the editor asked if Entertainment Weekly would stop calling her novels chick lit.
Well, Jenny, if you write something with "gabfest" in the title, where else would the work be classified?

Jul 06, Emer rated it did not like it Shelves: I was in a Gilmore Girls mood and wanted to make my series binge watch last longer by reading everything and anything about the series. Wasn't a fan of this though. Apr 18, Keirstan rated it really liked it Shelves: Most compelling are the stories that delve into the complicated-but-ideal relationship between series stars Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.
Jennifer Armstrong, in "No Boys Allowed" confirms that the female leads have constructed a life in which men are no longer necessary. Analyzing this premise further, "That's What You Get Folks, For Makin' Whoopee" by Kristen Kidder convincingly argues that it is the inevitable introduction of the "unnecessary" sex that causes the makings of a sieve in incorrigible relationship between the Girls. Later in the book, Janine Hiddlestone's "Mothers, Daughters and Gilmore Girls" introduces the thematic importance of Emily Gilmore in the younger Gilmores' relationship.
The compilation also brims with essays that investigate what is possibly the series' most fascinating character: Stars Hollow, like the Girls' relationship, is idealized. The sky is unceasingly sunny, the temperature always light jacket appropriate, the denizens teeming with character. Yet with all of this proof of impossibility in hand, it is the unlikelihood of this town's real world existence that adds the final element of eccentricity to the show fans grew to love.
Jennifer Crusie's Gilmore Girls "gabfest" is a treat, and one I plan to share with fellow fans. Oct 10, Chelsea rated it really liked it Shelves: There are some interesting viewpoints and takes on Gilmore Girls in Coffee at Luke's. There are essays considering the mathematical presence of father figures in Rory's life no, really , the contention that the Girls are really just a latter-day screwball comedy, a guy's perspective on what food means within the Gilmore verse a lot, naturally , and my favorite a passionate defense of Emily Gilmore, the third and oft-ignored Girl.

I'm an Emily fan, and I think she was one of the most complex and enjoyable characters on tv for years, and was played to perfection by Kelly Bishop but I digress , so including that essay was enough to earn this collection a solid 4 stars.
