This is a pretty good photo journal if you're into that kind of thing. There aren't any bio's or interviews, its just tons of photos from the show with lots of random quotes from the characters. It isn't unlike those old movie magazines they used to put out in 80's about films like Gremlins, Goonies, and ET. Actually, I think the the author intentionally went that route since Stranger Things is an 80's show and is heavily influenced by Gremlins, Goonies, and ET. In short, before buying this book make sure you read the description. The Amazon description straight out says its a photo book with quotes from the characters and they aren't just saying that because part of the book is that way, the entire book is that way. There's only one Stranger Things book with a lot of detail and worthwhile text and it has an intentionally torn dust cover and they want 30+ for it unless you get it from a marketplace seller or somewhere else.
In short, I like the book because it's a photo time capsule with the amusing quotes Dustin and the others say. Sure, I'd have liked a few character bios but I really don't give a damn what an actor has to say about his or her role in a film or show. "I love my character because it reminds me of blah blah blah".
