The Simpsons Family History Book Review

TheSimpsonsFamilyHistory.jpgFinished reading The Simpsons Family History.  The book is big and full of pictures.  All most like one of those coffee table book.  If you are a Simpsons fan you more than likely know the story on how Homer and Marge met.  Most of the book covers this.  It puts everything in chronological order.  Over the years the show would have different backstories of how Homer’s and Marge’s relationship played out before they had Bart and got married.  So you will see old episode pictures mixed in with newer HD ones.  With quotes from the shows.

While the book is nice to look at there is not much content in there.  There are lots of pictures and quotes from the show.  Just not much else.  If you are looking for more behind the scenes or info on the show itself this is not the book.  As you can guess by the title.  It tells the story of how Homer and Marge met, had kids and got married.  The book is nice but only for the die hard Simpsons fan.  Wait for it to go on sale not worth the full price of $40.00.

The Simpsons Family History Book

TheSimpsonsFamilyHistory.jpgHave order myself a copy of The Simpsons Family History book a few days back (Oct 6, 2014).  Which should be here some time around October 15.  Seen a bunch of copies at Wal-Mart a few days back.  Was going to buy it when I seen it there.  The book is pretty big and heavy hardcover.   But had to put it back on the shelf because I didn’t have room in my backpack.  Was on Amazon.ca ordering Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 9: Monsters, Misfits and Madmen.  So decided to see what they were asking for the Simpsons book.  They were only asking $20.  Which is a sweet deal because the cover price is $40.

[Update] Received these books in the mail October 10, 2014.  That was really fast shipping.  Have all ready started reading volume 9.  Then can’t wait to get into the Simpsons book.  Flipped though it and it looks very nice.

TheSimpsonsFamilyHistoryThere is a cool new book coming about The Simpsons.   Which is called The Simpsons Family History.  You might guess from the title it will be the history of the family.  From the description from the website,

“So you think you know the Simpsons? Well, think again! The Simpsons Family Historyunravels 25 years of Simpsons facts and fun and presents them in a never-before-seen chronological format. Travel through time with Matt Groening as he pulls back the curtain and reveals the events that turned this average family into a pop-culture phenomenon. Discover the hopes and dreams of a young Homer and uncover the sensitive and driven girl Marge was before she married him. Marvel at the hidden moments you never knew you missed, as all the pieces of Simpsons history fall into place. Chock full of art taken directly from the source, this massive tome is a must for Simpsons fans and the perfect way to celebrate The Simpsons’ 25th anniversary.”

This book sounds pretty sweet.  Think I will have to order myself a copy.  It will be about September 23, 2014.  Think this is the only book I heard of that has a video trailer.  Which you can see > here or below.
