    Twilight Companion

    Forgettable. One Twilight fan's opinion and a little historical background. I thought it would have deep insights into the series that I might have overlooked.

    False advertising: The title promises a companion guide "to the series" but does not.

    This is a revised edition of the same book published last year.

    The major errors, pointed out by reviewers, have been corrected and ONE chapter has been added about the movies, which is the only relevant piece in the book. The rest of the book is fundamentally flawed: This book ISN"T, as it's advertised, a guide to the SERIES: there's no discussions of the author, her books, the main characters, or anything else related to Twilight in a substantiative fashion.

    What there is are lots of juvenile quizzes about dating werewolves and vampires--no Twilight fan would care. Bottom line: one chapter out of 20 is about Twilight, so 5% of the book (the chapter on films) is relevant to this book; the rest of the book have very little to do with the books or the movies, unfortunately.

    So why is it titled a "Companion" and a "Guide to the Series"? Because that'll sell the book to innocents like husbands, parents or grandparents who don't know any better; they see the title and think it'd be the perfect gift for a spouse or daughter. It's not.

    The author also has an irritating habit of injecting herself in the narrative. If you want to read how the author checks her neck for vampire bites, has relatives with names similar to that of the Twilight characters, and drove around town looking to find a movie theater playing TWILIGHT, this book is EXACTLY your brand of heroin.

    Move along. There's nothing to see here of any interest to Twilight fans: your spouse, your daughter, or granddaughter will want something with a little more bite.
