Bree Tanner

Last night, after finishing my required reading I picked up Stephenie Meyer's latest story, "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner" intending to read the first chapter or so. I don't recall it being divided into chapters exactly...because once I started it I really couldn't put it down! I kept looking at the clock, which by that point was inching closer and closer to 4 AM, but there was so little book left that I just haaad to finish, you know?

So, while I'm between classes I figured I'd let y'all know what I thought. If you like Twilight, you'll be satisfied with Bree's story. The bit of a love story between Bree and Diego, while sweet, reminds me of "The Host", which isn't a bad thing, but it makes for a little bit of monotony. Don't get me wrong, I'm eternally grateful to Stephenie for giving us all Twilight and just about anything to do with it, I just felt like Bree's story wasn't enough, or maybe it was too similar to "The Host". I am glad we got to hear what Edward saw in Bree's thoughts though. It completes a small piece of the much larger puzzle. One thing that I found really interesting in Bree's story: Freaky Fred. I'm really hoping Freaky Fred makes a comeback, because that kid's got some potential. I like the idea that he's out there somewhere in the world, and it's possible we might see him again.


Anyway, time to head back out to class.

P.S. Dear Rain, you can let up anytime now. I think we'd all appreciate it. Thanks.
