A review by alexampersand
Resurrecting Ravana by Ray Garton


A pretty solid book, although by the last quarter I was starting to lose interest.

So many of the novelisations seem to be written by someone who has a very specific interest, so a lot of the book seems to be full of educating the reader (and the Scooby Gang) about a certain area of knowledge - in this case, Hindu gods. Which is interesting, but also makes it kind of jarring against the standard Buffy fare.

I will also say that this one seemed a lot darker than most of the other novelisations (and the show) - there was a pretty graphic description of a human skeleton having had all the flesh eaten off of it... Also Buffy says 'shit' which was unexpected.
