This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Dec 04, Derek Tatum rated it it was amazing Shelves: A mostly even-handed and objective encyclopedia of Goth culture. Terrific illustrations, including one of Nivek Ogre. It even defends Marilyn Manson, for reasons I’ve been saying for years.
One of the highlights is the Goth Band Family Tree that does a pretty decent job of breaking down the various subgenres.
Whether you agree or disagree with the author’s observations, it’s one of the essential books I’ve run across on the topic of Gothdom. Aug 17, Rosemary rated it really liked it. As someone who’s pretty much an outsider to “gothdom” despite liking a lot of the bands, authors, movies etc mentioned, I learnt quite a lot.
Dec 04, Aurumora rated it liked it Shelves: Folgende Themenbereiche wurden aufgegriffen: Ich habe das Buch orientierend von hinten nach vorn gelesen. Es ist schade, dass meine Interessengebiete Film und Literatur so wenig behandelt wurden. Teilweise hat die Autorin ein bisschen Humor bewiesen.
Encycoopedia Ende war Leseeindruck.
An sich ist das Buch gut verarbeitet und besonders wertig auch mit der Gestaltung des Buchschnittes. Sep 28, Jessica rated it it was amazing.
A great addition to any darkling’s library. It has a very solid background on the the Goth subculture and elements that influenced it.
Liisa does a wonderful job of covering a wide and continually growing subculture and the book itself is a feast for the eyes. May 17, Chelsea rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved reading this, I thought it was informative, and also really witty.
Feb 09, Janine McCaw rated it really liked it. For the ecyclopedia part, Liisa Ladouceur delivered what she promised,a reference book for Gothaholics and their minions. The Kobo version had a few glitches, and I wished that techno pops had got to it and I could flip back and forth to other references or external links, but that’s wishful thinking on my part.
It’s heavy on reference, not so much on linguistics, and I enjoyed the last few “list” pages the most. You’ll probably spend hours searching for her references online Great book for your commute. Aug 12, Annari Du plessis rated it liked it.
I would’ve liked the book to be more objective, because not all goths share the gothic morality, for instance. Something I picked up was that the author mixed up gauntlets protective gloves and bracers arm-guard in the form of a sheath.
Under the entry for gauntlets, she describes bracers. There were also some entries I missed, that were encyclopedai included, but overall it was gothlca and the humour made me chuckle more than a few times.
Sep 21, Michelle rated it liked it Shelves: Although I was bored when it came to the explanations of bands and Goth people, this encyclopedia was really informing to those of us who have only a slight definition of the Goth world. I am happy to say that I too enjoy many of the things Goths do ei: Apr 25, Jen Healey rated it it was amazing.
Although I haven’t read every single entry in this awesome book, I encyclopsdia skimmed and re-skimmed it many, many times and I will contuinue to gothixa so for a long time. So it is going to be classed as read, even though it will remain on my bedside table for a while yet. A treasure trove of uber-goth coolness! Jan 16, Jeannie rated it it was ok. There’s nothing here that anyone who loves the more macabre side of life does not already know. In fact, if you have to read this collection to learn any of these terms, then you are what the author has termed a “Doom Cookie” or Mall Goth.
Nov 10, Linda rated it really liked it Recommends it for: First of all I love enycclopedia cover. Next, everything you want or need to know about Goth and living the style is in this book.
Creative,well thought out and researched. Jun 17, Mira rated it liked it. The rating would have been higher if not for the weird emphasis on paleness “regardless of ethnicity”. The goth community has enough trouble as encycloppedia is with that kind of thinking. Aug 19, Mills College Library added it. Jan gorhica, Raija rated it it was amazing. You should at least leaf this one through. I read it all, but then again I like encyclopedias. This is a fun book.
Oct 07, Danielle Tortorici rated it it was amazing. As funny as it is informative. A fun read for the black at heart perhaps while sipping a nice vodka cran, from a long-stemmed wine glass, of course.
Sep 07, Belen rated it really liked it.
