Stephenie Meyer changed the cliché of a parasitic vampire into a wonderful god-like animal with her Twilight book. In Twilight, a normal secondary school young lady, Bella Swan, begins to look all st. .rry eyed at a standout amongst the most wonderful young men at her new school, Edward, who happens to be a vampire. What does one call a dazzling, secretive vampire and his shocking, baffling vampire crew? "The Cullens" would suffice. The writer's style and characters will stick your hands to the book and your eyes to the page.

Not to be confused with another Virgin published Doctor Who spin-off under the same title, Twilight of the Gods

Not to be confused with another Virgin published Doctor Who spin-off under the same title, Twilight of the Gods. Twilight of the Gods is an original novel written by Christopher Bulis and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The novel features the Second Doctor, Jamie and Victoria. It is a sequel to the 1965 serial The Web Planet.

Book 26 of 33 in the Doctor Who: Missing Adventures Series. Even the original foot soldiers of the enemy, the Zarbi, whom the BBC once hoped would become as popular as the Daleks, have no substantial part to play in the story. Indeed, the appearance of one on the cover is probably the most noticeable contribution they make to the story.

The Who were at their peak in the 1970s. Few other bands in the world could touch them. But time was running out for the classic line-up and by 1979 drummer Keith Moon was dead of a prescription drug overdose. The documentary film The Kids Are Alright captured the band in their glory and producer Tony Klinger followed them in their last days of that amazing first line-up and recorded every moment in his dairy. Now he tells the dramatic story of The Twilight of the Gods. Directed by fan Jeff Stein, the movie showed the band as they had never been seen before, uncovering archive footage and live performances that many had thought lost. The band also played exclusively for the movie, but Keith Moon didn’t even live to see the completion of the project. Tony Klinger recounts the gripping story of filming the last ever concert the band played with Moon, plus the realities of making a firm with the most unpredictable and incendiary live act on the planet. The Who redefined rock music and have continued to inspire their fans right up to the present day. Yet these last, dramatic days with Keith Moon remain a fascinating focus to understand exactly what made the band so powerful and Tony Klinger was there for each incredible shot.


Reviews about Twilight of the Gods: My Adventures with The Who (2):
MOQ
This book is 5 percent a fairly interesting account of the making of the movie The Kids Are Alright, and 95 percent picayune score-settling with everyone who allegedly wronged the author in the process. Probably the worst Who book I've ever read, and I've read just about all of them. You can pass.

I wouldn't want to get on Tony Klinger's bad side. If this book is any indication, it appears that he holds onto a grudge for roughly 30 years before he deals with his emotions. In this case he decided to settle the score in print.

There are far too many instances throughout where the author whines and moans about his treatment at the hands of The Who and their management, and yet convinces himself to stick around. Well, Mr. Klinger, if it was that bad and it was giving you that much of a headache, then why did you continue with the project?!? If it was that much of a hassle, and it was taking such a toll on your life, then why did you put up with it?!?

The Who didn't achieve their level of success and celebrity without possessing a great deal of determination, passion and ego, and it helps to have a thick skin when trying to work with them (especially if you're not part of their trusted inner circle). From the outset it becomes apparent that a thick skin is something that the author doesn't possess.

The author puts all of the principles in a negative light: Jeff Stein is over-the-top paranoid; Bill Curbishley is a hard-headed jerk; Roger Daltrey is a phony in that he portrays himself as a punk from the gutter when he's nothing more than a person who's become too comfortable with celebrity and forgotten what it's like to work for his wages; Pete Townshend fits the cliche of a temperamental genius; John Entwistle is uncomfortably quiet (Klinger goes so far to say that he comes off "a bit dumb"), and may be somewhat of an anti-semitic (witness the scene where the author claims he spotted Entwistle drawing Klinger and his people inside an oven).

Throughout the book, the author demonstrates an inability to roll with the punches and observe the scene with the level of detachment necessary to be able to escape with his sanity intact

I learned nothing from this book and found myself to be quite annoyed at the author when I was finished with it.

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
