I don't know how this was even possible, but reading Life and Death actually made me hate Twilight even more than I originally did. Twilight along with the rest of the books in the saga were the reason I started reading and if it wasn't for them I probably would have never joined Booktube.

I do realize that these books aren't exactly perfect, but they certainly aren't the worst things ever written. If you think that, then you obviously haven't read some of the true garbage that's out there. And there are so many bloated, boring, unedited crap novels floating around, that I honestly can't understand all the hate this book gets. Is it simply because a lot of people liked it, and it pisses off those who didn't?
For those of you who feel that way, I bring a peace offering. Moving on to the main event! So, in my humble opinion, how did Life and Death stack up to the original?
Sorry, switching the genders just didn't work out very well for me. Scenes that may have been only slightly awkward in the original, suddenly became glaringly awkward in the re-imagining. Because that monkey-piggyback thing was stupid to start with There was no way I could get past the mental image of how absurd it would look. And there were lots of things like that I couldn't get past.
Like the part where Edythe gives Beau her scarf stolen from Archie, so it's not a lady-scarf! He gratefully wraps his blotchy neck up like a mummy, sips his coke, and stares adoringly at Edythe. It was just about the least manly thing I've ever read. Or this little gem from Beau: Are you for fucking real, Meyer?! The deal was, you were supposed to switch genders.
Not make Beau into the most feminine character I've ever read about. I guess I'm not a progressive as I thought I was, because by the end of the book, I wanted to punch him in his vagina!
Let's not forget Edythe , though. Although, that's pretty much what I did. She was nowhere near interesting, and I couldn't have possibly cared less what happened to her character. Other than the unbelievably pretentious spelling of her name, she didn't have much going for her. I expected her to be How can I explain this?
It took me longer than I thought it would to slog through this, and I want to apologize to the lovely ladies I was supposed to be buddy-reading with. In my defense, life was a little hectic this past week, so I'm hoping you guys forgive me. I think I probably would have given this 1 star, but I actually enjoyed the alternate ending. Especially the parts that poked at Twilight's ending. If Meyer had written the rest of the book as well as she did the last bit, I would have enjoyed it quite a bit more, I think.
For those of you who are curious about the ending, but aren't planning to read this book, go ahead and click the spoiler tag. In other words, Edythe doesn't get to Beau in time to suck the poison out of Beau's veins, and he ends up becoming a vampire.
The werewolves do eventually agree to keep the treaty, but Beau hadn't had a chance to get to know Julie female version of Jacob very well, so there was no love triangle that developed. The Volturi also have an alternate history or at least I thought so and seem to be run by different nicer? I can go back and check this out again for anyone who's curious, but I'm kinda tired of this book, and I don't feel like digging this info up right this second.
But since Beau was immediately made into a vampire, there was no need for any sort of confrontation. Edythe in her one funny moment points out that she doesn't think having a showdown with them would go very well.
This gif make me laugh! You're welcome.
Best part of this? There's no creepy kid with a hilariously ludicrous name. That's right, folks! No Renessamamonster or whatthefuckever! If she could have re-imagined the whole thing , instead of just mostly changing pronouns, I would have been happy. As it is, I don't think this is worth the price tag, simply because it isn't for the most part a quality story.
I actually had more fun on this review's thread than I did reading this painful rendition of Meyer's 'classic' novel. It was, on the whole, an Epic Fail.

It's the same exact fucking book as Twilight, word for word in most places. I know that some things are changed, like apparently the ending is different, but this is bullshit. You can't just change the pronouns of all the characters in a book and then rerelease it. Whoever decided that this was a good idea is insane. I can't believe it.
Meyer specifically said in the author's note that she didn't have enough time to finish midnight sun so she did this instead. I think it's utter bullshit, because anyone can take their book and republish it giving the characters different names.
I am severely disappointed. All this just to prove a point that Bella isn't some damsel in distress. View all 26 comments. I bet E. James is doing the happy dance right now. View all 14 comments. The Twilight series is a vampire. It won't die unless you burn it with fire.

Everyone has that one book or one series that really turned them into a reader. Then the month after I graduated nursing school in , I picked up this book called Twilight.
I bought all 4 of those books and read them in less than 4 days. I was consumed. Then, a month or two later, I dragged my hu 3ish stars Then, a month or two later, I dragged my husband to the movies to see it on the big screen. And most importantly, without Twilight, who knows if I would have started reading daily, joined goodreads and met all you fantastic people. The Twilight saga will always hold a special place in my heart, but this book- ugh. The concept could have worked, but I honestly felt like the author took out all the names, replaced them, changed a few itty bitty things and called it a day.
This is not a retelling of Twilight, this IS Twilight. If I wanted to re-read Twilight, I would have done that. I wanted more development. I will forever love Twilight, and fans of the story that want a fun way to re-read with the characters genders swapping, then I say pick this up and you will probably LOVE it.
I think my expectations were just too high. I wanted something different, something more. Life and Death gets a generous 3 stars from me. View all 75 comments. When does it end? View all 11 comments. I wanted to give this book or whatever, the chance I felt it deserved. See, Twilight was the catalyzer of my reading life. It was Twilight who introduced me to YA and that helped me find this community.
It was because of Twilight and its movies that I found a lot of things and people I love till this day so having this book released, in honor 0. It was because of Twilight and its movies that I found a lot of things and people I love till this day so having this book released, in honor of the tenth year anniversary? It was a must read against my best judgement. Let me list why I hated the most really quick or this rant could go in forever.
Stephenie, you are a worldwide best-seller author. You have legions of fans. You clearly had fun doing this… whatever this was so the least you could do was to be woman enough to do it without giving us lame excuses. And, wait for it: Wow, Stephenie, just wow. Charlie is one of my favorite characters of the series. Charlie and man! That made me so incredibly angry and her excuse for it? Beau was born in It was a rare thing for a father to get primary custody of a child in those days—even more so when the child was just a baby.
Most likely, the mother would have had to be proven unfit in some way. I have a really hard time believing that any judge at that time or even now would give a child to a transient, unemployed father over a mother with a steady job and strong ties to her community. If you really wanted to make it rain blood, you could have done it.
I mean, that could have been good but no. Now, this was Twilight, Stephenie just changed the pronouns and that was it. It is her job as a writer to make the world appealing and the MC stand out.
It was not fun. This was the same romance, somehow less appealing and totally full of bullshit. Oh, and that scene when Bella was almost sexual assaulted?
Nope, Beau was mistaken for a police officer and they almost beat the shit out of him. Do they or does she think guys cannot be victims of sexual assaults?
There went another missed opportunity. The ending? That was just bullshit. She tried to pack three books in 4 paragraphs and the result was messy and senseless. Beau was just there, doing nothing. She stared at me, shocked by my tortured expression. Stephenie, for this I totally blame you. I do not care at all about your personal belief, this is just wrong.
Having guys idolatrize that kind of body is already bad enough and a very serious issue we have and I hate when books promote this shit. We all are different and see things differently but this? I would not recommend this book. Not only this book is utterly crap but it gives a really sick view on how guys should look upon girls.
I don't think I've ever said this of an authot but I'm really ashamed of her and me and this book should have never been printed. View all 12 comments.

I love the idea of a gender-bent re-imagining of a story but this, I just don't know if I hate myself enough to read this. View all 6 comments. I filmed this right after I finished Life and Death it's non-spolier btw: When reading this book there were moments when I just got so overwhelmed.
I would just randomly start crying because it felt like I was thrown back in time to when I was in the fifth grade reading Twilight for the first time. I loved reading this book and I thought the switch of the genders was interesting. I appreciated the fact Stephenie Meyer didn't just revise Twilight but put her own twist on it making it so enjoyable to read. I know from the reviews already posted that many people just automatically gave it a 1 star without even reading it so I hope this review and my video will help people deciding if they should read it or not.
Overall, I think if you are a fan of the saga you will enjoy reading this book: Twilight along with the rest of the books in the saga were the reason I started reading and if it wasn't for them I probably would have never joined Booktube. When I heard about this new book I cried I know pretty dramatic but I'm turning 18 tomorrow aka the "ending" of my childhood and honestly it's weird since I still feel like I'm 8.
With the release of this book it made me realize I own a lot to Stephenie Meyer and I cannot wait to read this book. I will keep you updated when it finally arrives: View all 18 comments.

I thought Stephenie Meyer wanted to fix her past mistakes with a different version of Twilight. Seriously, why having the same book? Why would you change the names and genre but not the pathetic, lifeless and zombie-like personalities of your characters? Why not change their bad decisions and problematic behaviors? What did the world do to deserve this, Meyer? Now only God knows what horrible thing E. James is planning. View all 8 comments. This must be a joke, right?
