New Dawn: Your Favorite Authors on Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Look out TWILIGHT fans, there's something new to sink your teeth into.
A NEW DAWN is a book full of many authors' essays, all about the TWILIGHT saga. You may think, wow, a book of reviews and essays, that sounds boring. It actually has some great analyses from some great authors. This book talks about many different topics you might or might not have even thought of while reading the series.
One interesting topic is how different the thought of vampires has changed over the years. Our society used to think of vampires as horrible creatures; now they are thought of as normal citizens in our day-to-day life. That is just one subject out of many that is brought up.
Personally, I loved this book. I absolutely adored the TWILIGHT saga, so reading A NEW DAWN was very interesting. I got a great viewpoint from many perspectives and that was the best part. I highly recommend reading it if you want to get a little deeper view on TWILIGHT, NEW MOON, ECLIPSE, and BREAKING DAWN.
i absolutely adore that teen authors are getting excited about the same books that the teens are reading. and that they're publishing essay collections to celebrate. this book was interesting and each author really took a unique perspective on the "twilight" world. teens could easily digest this book in parts if they work on it. and knowing my teens' love for twilight -- they will.
We took our first break from shopping shortly after lunch and we all sat down in those comfy chairs they have by the department stores to talk and read-- mostly read, of course. By the time we left the mall at 6:30, I had already finished the whole book, 174 pages of perfection! It's a Border's exclusive, so you can't get it from B&N or Amazon, but if you are a Twilight fan, it is worth going to Borders for! The book contains over 10 award winning and amazing authors *Most of whom write teenage fiction novels* and their views, thoughts, stories, and, yes, even some 'humor' *not humor as in making fun of Twilight!* about Twilight, what makes it so popular, what makes it so well written, and, possibly two of the most important questions Twilight fans wonder: "WHY do we love Edward so much? And who would make a better boyfriend: Jacob or Edward?" I laughed a lot during the book, because the authors had such a way with words-- and in a good way. But I also found myself digging even deeper into the three books that I love, asking myself more questions, seeking answers and comprehension that I had never really thought of before. 5 stars!
