Book Review: Life and Death (Twilight Gender Swap!)
Life and Death
Ten years after the emergence of Twilight and the vampire frenzy that has since plagued entertainment outlets, Stephenie Meyer needs no introduction. Her novels — not just the Twilight series but The Host — have had readers hanging on her every word. In the new book, Bella is Beau, and Edward is now Edythe. All other characters are the opposite genders as well, with the exception of Charlie and Renee. The plot summary is still the same, although Beau ends up a vampire in the first novel to wrap up his story without a series.

The teen book series about a sparkly vampire and the moony girl who loves him became an international phenomenon and spawned an insanely successful film franchise. Meyer has accomplished a rare feat — reinvigorating interest in her books even though their time in the spotlight has long past. So before you buy this special edition for the Twihard in your life, take these issues into consideration. Source: Summit Entertainment. But now Bella the lovesick teen is Beau, the lovesick teen, and Edward, the brooding vampire is Edythe, the brooding vampire. And readers understandably feel a little bit cheated. Instead, she did the bare minimum required and hoped that nobody would notice.
