Notes from the Upside Down is an unofficial guide to the hit Netflix Show, Stranger Things. (Season 1). The book talks about how the show came about and there is a chapter per episode where it talks about things that happened in each episode. There is also a quiz for champions of the show – which I totally sucked at, I guess I should watch the series a few more times and try again! There is also a lot of talk about the connections to Stephen King, Spielberg, John Carpenter and a lot of the 80s throwbacks. There are bios on the characters as well as a list of 80s movies that you should watch. I thought this was a great companion piece for the show, definitely read it as or after you have finished the first season!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
