Obviously, this is a book designed only for Twilight enthusiasts. And, apparently, I am one.
To be honest, I couldn't help but wonder if this was a publicity ploy. One to make you want to see the movie (Eclipse), and read the books all over again.
While I haven't re-read the books (because all my Twilight books are in storage about 10,000 miles away...), I did succumb to buying "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner".
It was a birthday gift from many of the people whom I love. Thanks everyone.
One of the things that immediately struck me is that there is no division to the book. No chapters, no breaks. I found that because of that it actually read more like a super developed character biography.
And, I guess, that's exactly what Stephenie Meyer intended it to be.
As you can probably guess by the title, this is the story of Bree Tanner. And, as such it offers a glimpse into the newborn army that was created to defeat the Cullens and kill Bella.
I always like learning more about the story, but even more so when it's the original author's continuance rather than someone trying to take up someone else's genius (like Scarlett for Gone with the Wind).
