This book is worth five stars for fans, but only two stars as a book. It has great background info if you loved Northern Exposure, but it is not well written. It is repetitive. It is dry. I laughed twice in 225 pages, and only once seriously (evil bear cub). Burrows alludes to issues with the making of the show, but does not substantiate them. This book could have been so amazing if Burrows had either: Deepened his own NE journey OR included perspectives of other cast members and Cicely “residents.” Instead, it is a barely engaging book not quite about a young actor growing up and not quite about a hit TV show.
