I was so excited to read the backstory of one of my favorite shows, as I have been a fan of the X-Files for years. I like the fact that this book wasn’t a retelling of plots from the series, but a ‘how Mulder became an obsessed agent.’ It was pretty cool to find him the same age as me (almost 18) and in high school. Even then, he is driven to investigate everything, though he doesn’t believe in the supernatural at first. The book doesn’t follow a storyline like the shows do, but it makes it more believable, almost like a biography. Even then, there’s enough suspense and investigative drama to satisfy most hard-core X File fans.
