Sam and Dean Winchester know all the s. Yesterday I realized the reason Supernatural is my favourite TV show notice I'm not saying it's the best TV show this is clearly The Wire and I'll fight you if you disagree is probably because it's the saddest show I know Am I that easy to get Apparently yes So on the surface Supernatural is about two brothers Dean and Sam who hunt monsters demons fight the devil are best friends or depending on how feel about the ueer baiting with a fallen angel alternately save and accidentally threaten to destroy earth heaven and hell I've heard it being described as a horror show fantasy Drama dark fantasy a supernatural procedural crime show and it's all kinda true In the early seasons it was of monster of the week show before that kind of dissolved into something else Unlike a lot of people I don't think the show got gradually worse with each season I think it's hit and miss most of the 13 of 14 seasons I've watched There are a lot of moments that make me want to scream when plot lines don't make sense there's way too many inconsistencies or most of all when they just abort the best story lines completely Anyway what I really wanted to say was while all these genres are accurate I mainly watch the show as a character study That might be both the reason why I actually still love the later seasons and why the show frustrates me to no end Two brothers in their 30s who've literally been to hell and back who lose all their friends except for that one angel friend Castiel who's a tragic figure in itself having turned his back to heaven after choosing Dean above all else who don't have any sort of stability or normalcy in their lives and who are both mentally not very well I want to know this kind of stuff I want to have a look at their fucked up ness through a magnifier I live my TV like I like my novels characters first stories second Which is to say mainly I watch this show for glimpses of a show it could beSo why am I talking about this and what does it have to do with this bookIn the first season of the show Dean Sam's father John is still alive This is supposed to be the journal he's written between the death of his wife and his own death The journal is pretty integral part of the early seasons and I'd love to have an actual look at the thing this is clearly not it The book is part facts about demons spirits and the supernatural and part his thoughts about hunting cases and his family The passages about demons and ghosts and etc are really boring I ended up skimming them because they were so dry Besides I felt some of the things directly contradicted things said on the show The diary part was better even though I felt the voice was off It just didn't remind me of John at all I understand that people can sound soft spoken in their diary than in real life but for that it was also really emotionless He writes about missing his wife Mary and trying to avenge her but it didn't sound real The very very short tidbits about Sam and Dean were good and uite sad especially the ones about Sam but they were just much too short They did make me consider giving this book two stars instead of one but really it's just not enough This book also doesn't really make sense as John Winchester's actual journal because the show makes it clear that Sam and Dean have read the journal but some of things mentioned in here they don't know until much later or not at all I think Mainly this book has made me crave a really good fanfiction backstory chronicling John Mary's lives Congrats if you have never watched Supernatural and read all the way through

SupernaturalJohn Winchester's JournalEcrets their father recorded in his jo. The book in and of itself was interesting A lot of lore and information on mythology and especially demonology if you want culturally specific spirits creatures and the like this one's definitely for you I was particularly facsinated with a brief period in the book where he fixated on water spirits and the puca a mythical horse that's said to appear on Nov 1st and take unsuspecting riders on a hellish romp and then give them advice if it feels like it Sounds pretty badass to me made me wonder why we haven't seen it on the showThe only thing that I catagorize as bad would be the extensive page time devoted to uoting other texts At the best it's informative but tedious and at the worst it's two pages that you either skim or don't read I don't think the constant uoting and citing was necessary references to the works would have been sufficientThe bulk of the book however was kind of mediocre Those looking for a deeper exploration into John as a character or his feelings and experiences will be mildly disappointed; every so often John will delve into the personal with a really beautiful poignant sincerity He's devastated by the loss of his wife alternately burdened and saved by the need of his sons and overwhelmed by the world of hunting as he begins to descend into it he definitely came a long way to become the near legend he was when he died John only seems to fixate on a few dates the day Mary died his and Mary's anniversary and Dean and Sam's respective birthdays His assessments of the boys are heartbreaking all the way from Sam taking his first steps towards Dean no less to Dean inheriting the Impala and Sam exploding and leaving for Stanford Those parts are so well done that it's a shame they're so few and far between In summary John's journal is exactly what it was meant to be an invaluable tool for young hunters who need guidance on what they might be facing But it feels like it was two separate journals shoved together the one where John talks about how damaged he is and the one where John talks about hunting I can't imagine that Sam and Dean could have read this without some serious emotional moments and those are never addressedI recommend you read it if you love the show because hey John Not to mention the great moments of personal impact But all in all it tries to be two different things too hard and because of that kind of misses the mark it could have made on both
