Twilight has enraptured millions of readers since its first publication in 2005 and has become a modern classic, redefining genres within young adult literature and inspiring a phenomenon that has had readers yearning for more. The novel was a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller, a Time magazine Best Young Adult Book of All Time, an NPR Best-Ever Teen Novel, and a New York Times Editor's Choice. The Twilight Saga, which also includes New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella, and The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, has sold nearly 155 million copies worldwide.

Hat mich nicht überzeugt. Aber der Leser des englischen Hörbuchs, Michael Crouch, ist sehr gut.

This book totally worked for me. I actually really loved it, it gave a new spin on the story and kinda made it into it’s own.

    First, I have to say that I loved the twilight series before the movies came out. Those kind of ruined it all for me...then again I was younger when I read the books and now I do not like them as much anymore. When I heard that there would be a new twilight version for the 10th anniversary, I was a bit sceptical, but I was also kind of curious when I heard that there would be a gender swap. Bella became Beau, Edward became Edythe, and so on... I hoped that the story would not be confusing because of the gender swap, and it wasn't. I really enjoyed reading the story of Beau and Edythe. There are parts that are similar to the old twilight version only with reversed genders, but there are also a few changes which makes it, for me, very interesting to read! You all know twilight and it will always be twilight even if the genders are swapped, but I have to admit that I prefer the new version with Beau and Edythe ♥ and the best part: this book has a different ending than twilight which makes me love this new version even more ♥ Beau and Edythe made me find my way back into the twilight universe, and it was an amazing and exciting read/journey.

    I adore the Twilight Saga it's my favorite book series ever and I own so much to that series. Twilight was first book that gave me the feels, first book that I felt I could connect with and first book I reread a million times because I couldn't get enough of it.  While reading Life and Death there were moments when I just got so overwhelmed with emotion and nostalgia. It was amazing and beautiful. When the gender-swap was first announced, I was super excited but I was also really unsure if I would enjoy it. I was scared it would change my perception on the series I loved dearly. But I was wrong. This book totally worked for me. I actually really loved it, it gave a new spin on the story and kinda made it into it’s own without being a completely new story. Same story just more fresh. It's not just a gender-swap rewrite, it has a complete new ending.  AND WHAT ENDING THOUGH. Loved it! And I honestly don't care what other people think of me for reading it or just hating on the book itself, I had the most fun time reading it! So as not to spoil any changes and twists, I'll say it was fun to see an alternate take but I still prefer the original. Bella and Edward had a charm  and I don't think this version would have ensnared my adoration or captivated my imagination as the TWILIGHT we've known for years. This was still interesting, though not necessarily for everyone. Maybe the diehards and curious will enjoy the novelty of this the most but I actually do think it was a cool way to celebrate a phenomenon's tenth anniversary. I'll be here waiting for Midnight Sun.
