As a huge fan of SOA I will not spoil the ending to the brilliant series for our readers, but I will warn you that the SOA Collector’s Edition Book that was released early, will ruin the ending to the series for everyone.
The book was shipped out ahead of schedule, that normally would be a very nice treat for someone that has just ordered a book, but this book details the final moments and storylines for fans. The creator of the series, Kurt Sutter, acknowledged and apologized for the error with a wonderful note to longtime fans stating:
(warning, graphic language ahead)
“It has been brought to my attention that our SOA Collector’s Edition Book has been sent out a week early by some distributors and book outlets. This book contains details about the final episode of the series. This, my friends is a storyteller’s worst nightmare. I wanted this book to be a compliment to the show. It contains personal messages and photos from the cast, in-depth behind the scenes information and detailed breakdown of episodes. It’s a smart, well-conceived book that I was very excited for the fans to have. AFTER the motherf—— finale. There are a thousand f——people I can blame. And I assure you, by the time I am done, my f—— basket will be filled with heads of incompetent c—-. But as far as the fans go, the burden is on me. I f—– up. It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame. So if you received a book, I apologize. I ask that you not share your wrath or pain or opinion in social media so as to not spoil the experience of others. There is no excuse for utter ineptitude. It pains me that this will be the parting memory of some fans. I hope you all tune in for the finale. It plays much better than it reads. ”
So beware loyal fans, read the book after the season finale, not before.
