I love Twilight Saga but "Life and Death" is awful

I love all the Twilight Saga books, I've listened to them so many times that I know most of them off by heart, when listening to it I know the words coming next, but I still love listening to them over and over. I was so excited to see a new Twilight Saga book. I saw the negative reviews saying that "Life and Death" is virtually identical but switching the genders but it didn't put me off, I love Twilight Saga so much, and repetition is something I love rather than dislike and thought it'd be an interesting twist on the same thing. However, it is almost exactly word for word the same with only slight variations on the names to switch the gender and the wording occasionally modified very slightly, but only with occasional words. I never thought I could dislike a Twilight Saga book, but I just can't like this one, there's nothing new in it.

Interesting concept

It was great seeing this story with the genders swapped for most of the characters! Beau is a much more relatable character and doesn't seem as self pitying as Bella did at times. However I feel that the gender reversal should have made more of an impact throughout the book. However the ending does have a difference... no spoilers! I know that Stephenie has said that this is a stand alone but I'd love to have seen where it could have gone! Well worth the listen and my advice try not to compare it all the way through!

Read Over 50 Times and Still Love it!

I'm not too keen on the new 'Twilight Revisited' part, as it's very repetitive. I listened to the original first and then switched to the other one and it's almost identical from what I've heard about from the she is a he! In saying that, the original Twilight book is a young adult fiction piece of art that I happen to love. It may not be the best writing in the world all the time, but Meyer has a way of creating characters and a story that draws you in and you don't want to leave!

Would recommend for all the romantics out there!

Enjoyable.

Both very well narrated and fun to listen too. I enjoyed returning to Forks to relive the romance between Bella and Edward.

Twilight and Life end Death

These two books are great on their own but together high light the story in different ways. Read with great feeling by Micheal Crouch and Ilyana Kadushin.

Amazing

Hard to put down, the best narrations I have heard in a long time, I'm amazed at how much I actually liked it, given the fact it gets alot of hate. But the original is amazing and the new take in twilight is great aswell. Loved it. More twilight please!

It's the same exact story

If I'd known it was literally the same book just different names I wouldn't have purchased. They have changed the main characters names from female to male, visa Versa. The original is much better.

Fantastic Book

Would you listen to Twilight Tenth Anniversary/Life and Death Dual Edition again? Why?

I would i found this book more in depth then the Twilight series and very much enjoyed it

What did you like best about this story?

Compared to Twilight, Bella was an amazing character but her common use of very large words seemed out of place for her character and would be better fit for Edward who was 100's of years older, in this book the Aged Vampire used the larger words more then the teenage boy it seemed to fit more, he used large words every now and then but i felt as if was melt to try and impress Edith rather then the reader, very enjoyable

Which scene was your favorite?

The Alternate ending, Very much a large surprise and sad, LOVED IT

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Never presume to think you know the story.

Any additional comments?

I truly loved this story but every chapter was so full of details until the last chapter for me at least, the last chapter felt as if New moon,Eclipse and breaking dawn were all written into this one chapter, granted it was well done but from every previous chapter being so in depth i was surprised at the last chapter
