"It's pretty much the same exact book as the original. There are only minor changes to make the swapped genders make sense, and the ending is different. I liked the book, but I think it's an unnecessary read. If you've read the original but want to see how the ending is different, you could honestly just skip to the last two chapters. "
"I saw that this book existed a few days ago, and I automatically thought it might be disrespectful to read it, because then I’d be thinking of Bella and Edward as different people. I went to the library soon after that and I came across it, and really.. why the heck not read it? It was right there! And I really love Twilight, so I knew this one would be just as good. And it was!! The ending is a bit different than in Twilight as well as the characters of course, and I 10/10 recommend!"
"Love this book "
"I was fangirling over the whole thing!!!"
"I was expecting a little more from this book, but I do understand why it wasn't what I was expecting it to be. All the same, it was a great read and I am very happy to have read it; it's interesting for an author do do this sort of twist with her precious novel, and I'm glad it was done. If you're a huge fan of The Twilight Saga as I am, I'd recommend reading Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined."
