Item description for Coffee at Luke's: An Unauthorized Gilmore Girls Gabfest (Smart Pop series) by Jennifer Crusie & Leah Wilson...
The quirky world of Stars Hollow and the incredible relationship of the Gilmore Girls—mother Lorelai and daughter Rory are best friends—continues to engage viewers after seven seasons, with its lightning-fast dialogue, dry wit, and unusual take on family relations. In this satirical yet sensitive collection of essays, leading writers weigh in on how this unique show has successfully broken the teenage-sitcom mold and gained viewers of all ages. Addressing questions such as What are the risks of having your mother be your best friend? How is Gilmore Girls anti-family, at least in the traditional sense? and What's a male viewer to do when he finds both mother and daughter attractive? this anthology also looks at how the characters are shaped by the pop culture they consume and how prevalent a feeling of class consciousness is within the series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Coffee at Luke's: An Unauthorized Gilmore Girls Gabfest (Smart Pop series)?
Annoying delivery problems Jul 19, 2008
This book and the other book I ordered it with took FOREVER to come!!! And of course I had to wait two months before I could track it down at the post office. VERY disappointed with level of customer service from both this site and UPS. Not sure if I'll order anything else from this site for a long time because of this.
Coffee at Luke's: An Unauthirized Gilmore Girls Gabfest (Smart Jul 13, 2008
if you liked the Gilmore Girls you would like this book. They have a few of the quirky phrases that they say and explain some things from a different point of view. I like this book.
(Semi-)Scholarly Analysis of Star's Hollow Apr 22, 2008
I loved reading the essays, which analyzed everything from Emily (wow, most psychiatrists wouldn't take on that job) to the massive amounts of food consumed on the show. While I disagreed with the point made by a few of the essays, I think that the book points out the many subtleties that make Gilmore Girls a fan classic. Did you ever notice the significance of Lorelai becoming a maid after leaving home? Emily fires maids every day, doesn't consider them human, and in season 6 calls them criminals who get their children to rob you. She said that to Rory, the child of a former maid. Little gems like that make this book a must-read. Plus, it gives you an excuse to break out the much-watched DVDs again.
not as fast paced as the show's dialogue Dec 19, 2007
this is a scholastic look at a fantastic show. i miss it :( this should only be read by those very familiar with the show and the backgrounds of all the characters. i own all the dvds (don't judge) and have seen each episode numerous times...so i was able to picture scenes that the authors were talking about...have a cram session if necessary before reading :) these essays do make you look at the show from a new angle.
