The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner - Stephenie Meyer

I've thought long and hard about this review. Initially I was not going to write a review at all. But due to my goal of reviewing all books read this year, I decided to try to write something.

When I started reading The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, it was my intent to read it in one sitting. After reading the first 30 pages, my mind had other ideas. I started thinking about all the other things I could be doing instead of reading this book. I put it down and walked away for about an hour or so. I picked it up again and forced myself to finish.

It wasn't good. I had no idea who Bree Tanner was and didn't remember her in Eclipse. After I finished, I still had no idea who she is and finally realized I just didn't care. For all the hype this book has gotten, I found it to be anticlimactic.

  1. You know I had know idea who she was either. I had to ask everyone and finally it was one of my students who filled me in. (Why is it they can remember that character but not my homework??)

    I guess it helped having seen the film this summer, but I still have no desire to read the book.

  2. Why didn't you like it? aside from not knowing who she was.
