5.0 out of 5 stars
well worth the (too) long wait, 16 April 2011
I had been waiting for this book to come out ever since it was first announced. i'm so happy that it is finally here. it is all that i had imagined, i'm loving it (i still have around 100 pages to go).
i am a HUGE fan and lost track of how many times i've read de 5 books (i'm including bree tanner's short story) so most of the information wasn't completely new, but the bits that were i more than welcome them, considering it's the only material from twilight universe to be released in a long time and i was in withdrawal ahahah. (the only thing i want to read more than this guide is "Midnight Sun", too bad Stephenie Meyer doesn't seem inclined to publish it)
to know the background stories of these characters i've come to love is awesome, it's like diving deeper into this fantasy world inside the author's mind. it truly is fascinating i tell you.
besides the background stories, my favourite parts are the timeline (very useful) and the drawing of the wedding dress. can't wait to watch that in the movie...
*end of spoilers*
as an investment, i recommend this book because it's illustrated, in colour, the quality of the paper is excellent, it's hardcover and it's like 500 or so pages long, so really it's not at all expensive. i think this book will be a huge success among the fans, specially those who were counting the days to its release such as myself.
(and thank you amazon for shipping it to Portugal so quickly!!!)
