I linked to page 19, since that is the “start” of the reading. Some info:

“Back To The Future: A Robert Zemeckis Film” (this seems to be the title of the book, judging by the cover) is a fascinating book for several reasons. One, the author was working off of the screenplay, but clearly a version of the screenplay that was not the final one. Two, the author (George Gipe) seems to not have had an editor, as there are sections of the book that are crazy loco. And three, after putting out this book in 1985 to coincide with the release of the film, he was stung to death by bees (this can happen) and was dead in 1986. The other two novelizations were written by a different author and are not nearly as insane/interesting.

I read this blog as he posted it; and it is amazing. As someone who loves Back to the Future, it’s worth the read!!

Omfg, things like that are so oddly fascinating. Also, I wanna know how loco the book is.

I’m gonna have a difficult time not describing music as “stereo rock music”.
