Supernatural: John Winchester’s Journal – Alex Irvine
Previously I read Bobby Singer’s guide to hunting, which I kept calling Bobby’s journal. Anyway where his went by place papa Winchester’s goes by year. (if only they could have an appendix of some sort at the end to be able to refer to certain monsters or topics to find what you are looking for faster. Also some of what John wrote no idea what some of the notes are about. I had to look on the previous page or 2 to see if I missed something. (And this was a kindle book! so I don’t think those pages can get stuck together)
As for the exorcism rites.., I do wish there were an English translation (or at least a key of proper pronunciations of the Latin letters.)
When Mr. Winchester isn’t writing his notes on demons, spirits and other things that may or may not go bump in the night, his entries seem mostly on His anniversary with Mary and the boys birthdays.
What I do like about both John’s & Bobby’s Journals is you get some back stories about them that I don’t think were in the show. I have read one of the shows Spin-off novels I forget which. I know one I wanted to read was Nevermore… (that might have been the one I still need to read) one had something to do with a dragon.. Oh the Heart of the Dragon is the one I read.
Any fan of Supernatural will like, but I liked Bobby’s table of contents better. As for anyone else…
if you like the supernatural and reading bits and pieces about folklore than you’d like this. Thankfully I had it on the kindle as I had to check on a few words I was not familiar with.
