Can't believe that, of all the names in his thank-you notes, he misspelled Joss Whedon
It's not the author's fault, but as I read the prologue, I keep having to remind myself that it's taking place in the 1999-2000 period, cause my mind keeps picturing the 1970s, for some reason...
I kinda like this line - he'd used up all his rainy days.
The conversation between Bentone and Meskal is very book-like, but not very reality-based.
not the dogs
Since when are trolls canon? I mean, I know it's possible, but with Angel supposedly 'hating trolls' you'd think there'd been an episode about it
Okay, the dog puns stop being funny when they're overused, dude.
What's with the 'ye' when Doyle is speaking? That's gonna get old, really fast.
Nsync reference, heh
The thing with Verna - cool as the nightmare sequence was - seemed just an excuse to get Doyle away from Angel, but I'll allow it if Verna shows up again later.
Why would the troll's words get to Angel? Buffy is constantly dealing with non-apocalyptic battles, too, why should he be any different? This makes the kind of sense that doesn't...
I like the coupon detail with Cordelia, I never thought of that before, but it makes sense.
Here's my only issue, though, and it's a tiny one; I feel that she would be quick to hide the coupon clipping once Angel entered the office, but maybe that's just me.
Gotta say I'm kinda disappointed. The book format is an opportunity to really give us a look into Doyle's head when he's having a vision, but the reality was very...lackluster.
The part with Cordelia distracting the nurses was wonderful because the author remembered that she's a bad actress and so the turn it took felt believable.
And here I thought it was canon that Drusilla was the worst thing Angelus ever did...nice to know I was wrong.
Okay, so it's not amazing or anything, not that I was expecting that, but I don't have a problem continuing. I suppose I've just read too much fanfiction that was much better (and more in-character) than this and that kinda messes with my head a bit
