Gilmore Girls – Life’s short, talk fast!

Gilmore Girls é uma série criada por Amy Sherman-Palladino (obrigada, Amy!) que estreiou em 2000 e teve seu fim 7 anos depois, deixando muitos órfãos para trás.

Baseada no relacionamento de Lorelai (Lauren Graham) e Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), que mais do que mãe e filha, são melhores amigas, a história é sobre crescimento, companheirismo, amor e amizade. Entre dificuldades na escola, no trabalho e na relação com os pais, é impossível para quem assiste não se identificar com as alegrias e desafios da dupla. Os demais personagens que compõe essa história são tão interessantes quanto as protagonistas e não deixam a desejar.


Os diálogos rápidos e cheios de referências também são uma característica marcante da produção, que vale a pena assistir mais de uma vez, nem que seja para confirmar que o seu nível de cultura geral melhorou e que agora você entende o que as duas estão querendo dizer. Acho que a série é como vinho: melhora e fica mais gostosa com o tempo (:

Amy Sherman-Palladino pode ser uma mulher brilhante, mas ela não deve ter construído a lista de livros, filmes e músicas que saem da cabeça de mãe e filha sozinha. Toda vez que eu assisto a série me bate um sentimento de não sei nada da vida, mas tenha em mente: de livro em livro a gente chega lá! E esse é o segundo motivo desse post (o primeiro era trazê-lo (a) para o lado negro da força e te transformar em Gilmore Fan): apresentar a lista de livros de Rory, uma bookaholic adorável!

Eu ainda não chequei pra ver se estão todos aí, mas considerando que são 184 publicações, não devem faltar muitas. A lista é bem eclética, não inclui apenas romances, tem não-ficção, poesias, biografias, filosofia, históricos, etc., e não é restrita apenas aos escritores americanos, inclui de europeus a asiáticos. Os títulos estão em inglês, peço desculpas por isso. Com o tempo vamos traduzindo!
