"My "God, " what is that outfit?""It's called 'clothes.'""No, "I'm" wearing clothes. "You" are wearing rags. Xander, do you even know what it means to accessorize?"Shaking his head and rolling his eyes at the same time, Xander replied, "Yeah. "To accessorize." A verb deriving from the noun "accessory." Loosely defined as, 'Caring way more about what you're wearing than necessary for simple human interpersonal contact.'"Gesturing as if she were pleading with Xander to not jump off a high ledge, Cordelia said, "Xander, clothes are what define who you are to the world. They put out a message that says, 'I'm cool' or 'I'm a jock' or 'I'm a computer geek" or in your case, 'I'm a loser with no redeeming social value.'"It went downhill from there, at least up to the part where they made up by necking near the restrooms.Xander returned home and fell more than sat on his bed, not even bothering to clear a space for himself -- he just collapsed onto the dirty laundry festooned on the sheets and stared at the ceiling. All in all, it had been a typical date: arguing for an hour, necking for an hour. "Not exactly how I pictured dating, he thought. Certainly not how all those fantasy dates with Buffy went in my head."He turned toward the bedside table to stare at the photograph next to his clock radio. Willow's mom had taken that picture of Buffy, Willow, and Xander sophomore year. Buffy's hair was longer then -- so, if it came to that, was Xander's."Things were simpler then, hionship had been set.Except, of course,for the necking part. That took another twelve years to develop.The funny thing was, while Willow and Xander had gleefully formed the We Hate Cordelia Chase Fan Club -- they even held semiregular meetings -- Jesse had always had the hots for her, right up until the moment he died. And now Xander was dating her."Well, it could be worse, he thought. At least dating Cordelia isn't an immediate threat to my life. My sanity maybe, but not my life."Shivering with a chill that had nothing to do with the typically warm Sunnydale night, he remembered a certain substitute biology teacher....Copyright © 1999 by Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation...

    This book consists of three stories about Xander Harris, and for any Buffy fan you will recall the episodes, "Teachers Pet", "Inca Mummy Girl" and "Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered". Reading this was like watching the episodes all over again except for being in the Head of Xander Harris and hearing some of his thought process. I would have preferred something new or the author to go a little more in depth within each story, but it was a nice reminder of the show.

    I know, ok? A novelization of 3 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: one star. WTF did I expect right?I just didn't know novelizing a teleplay meant copying the dialogue directly and in between lines describing exactly what happened on screen with no alteration whatever. You'd think he'd add SOME original material. Is this even legal?Anyway it was a gift.

    Great fun! This recaps some of the best Xander episodes from the TV series. Poor Xander doesn't have too much luck in his love life, first he's the victim of a giant praying mantis. Then falls for an Incan mummy princess. And last, but not least, learns you should never use magic when it comes to love.

    At first, I wasn't sure if I wanted to read stories based on a television show, even a show I like. But as I continued reading, I started to enjoy reading about Xander's misadventures and finding out how he saw things and what he thought.

    This is another great novelisation of three classic Buffy episodes, this time with Xander's chaotic love life as the theme. As one of my favourite characters, I loved reading his adventures in this way, reminded me of why I loved the series so much.
