I can pretty much guarantee that nearly everyone on the planet knows who Stephenie Meyer is. With the runaway success of all things TWILIGHT related, everyone from grade schoolers, to teens, to grown, married women with their own children have fallen for all things having to do with Bella and Edward.
Marc Shapiro, author of numerous other biographies and works of non-fiction, has turned his attention to the author of this wildly successful and entertaining series. Please note, this book is not a story about your favorite sparkly vampire; although it discusses TWILIGHT in a broad sense, it does not rehash the story or its characters. Instead, it is a finely written biography of the author herself.
Stephenie Meyer has stated numerous times that the story of TWILIGHT began with a dream. I know we're all wishing that our own dreams would make us multi-millionaires, but I hasten to add that you shouldn't hold out hope for that to happen! The greatest thing about the author, at least to me, is that throughout the craziness since the publication of the first book and the subsequent release of the two movies, Ms. Meyer has managed to keep the same quiet, understated lifestyle that she had before the screaming and fainting began.
For those who relish anything and everything related to this series, you'll want to pick up a copy of this book. Although I enjoyed it, my only issue with it was that everything written by Mr. Shapiro is a matter of public knowledge. You won't find anything new in this biography - most likely because it's unauthorized, and the author never interviewed Ms. Meyer for the book.
Fans, though, will like having all of the information in one easy-to-read and keep format.
