This book was very good and pretty comprehensive I have to say that the author tried too hard though Sometimes he tried sounding too academic and knowledgeable about the various myths gods and goddesses Then he would throw in Supernatural speak if you're a fan of the show you know what I mean and it just sounded inappropriate and ridiculous He also strays from the topic a little sometimes For example in the section about The Apocalypse he went on about an Egyptian myth that had nothing to do with an apocalyptic event The other thing I noticed is that he really doesn't have a good grasp of Judaism or the history of the Hebrew people referring to them as the YHVH followers or something like that No Jew would ever call themselves that now or then He constantly refers to the Old Testament as the Christian Bible not attributing it to the Jews at all I found this very surprising as he seems to have such respect for every other culture but Judaism That took away from his credibility in my eyesHe also seems to have the Norse religion confused a bit the genealogy of Odin Thor Loki and Baldur are different in my college mythology book than how Mr Brown portrayed them But I also know that mythology has different interpretations through various sources However all that aside the book is a good look at the characters we have seen on Supernatural It answers some uestions some inuisitive viewers might have and it also encouraged me to read further on for myself I just wish he didn't try to sound like Dean so much Mr Brown you are NOT Dean Winchester

Nathan Robert Brown õ 3 free read A look into the paranormal legends lore mythology and monsters featured on the hit television show Supernatural From angels to demons The Myth. Overall a very concise and humorous collection of blurbs regarding weapons and folklore used in the tv show Supernatural The pros Well edited I've read a lot of books on paranormal and supernatural topics and unfortunately they sometimes tend to be so full of spelling and grammatical errors that it almost makes them hard to read This book was not one of them uick and easy read not dry like many books on the subject and doesn't try to present itself as a textbook This area is still regarded as parascience after all and at least Mr Brown took the time to acknowledge other viewpoints besides the ones he personally followed It was made even spicier by the uotations and the little fact boxes which probably helped keep this book fresh and flowing Detailed both in research and in references to the show I liked the fact that this was obviously recently written and referenced newer episodes as well as the older ones The cons Not including variations on legends a few things were actually incorrect I know probably 90% of the world doesn't care and anyone who reads this is probably going to think I'm being a snob but the thing that sticks out in my mind is that the book refers to a rugaru or rougarou as being a Creole legend when it is actually Cajun They're two separate cultures There were a few others but I neglected to mark them and I'll have to try and remember to go back and find them I didn't dock the book's rating because of this but I actually didn't learn anything That isn't the book's fault or the author's fault and despite that I really did enjoy reading this Again it was refreshing and brought everything together in a uniue way I do plan on going through the bibliography and ordering the books that I don't have so I'm glad that's thereAnyway I liked the book and even though I want to say it could have been longer I think that the length worked well for it Otherwise it would have risked falling into a trap of monotony and redundancy Well done and I would recommend it
