Book Review: "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner"
I finally finished reading the short story of Bree Tanner on-line. It was great to have free access to this - thanks Stephanie Meyer!
I would never purchase this book - less then 200 pages for $8+ dollars. No way... I don't think I would read it again.
But, I enjoyed reading it. I love all the extra information you receive in addition to the actual books. I keep hoping she will finish Midnight Sun... I hope, I hope, I hope!
All I can say is that poor Bree Tanner had a horrible life as a human and as a vampire.
Victoria is EVIL! But we already knew that. It also gives more "in sight" into what life must have been like for Jasper in making newborn armies.
I wish there was more of a love story between Bree and Diego.
AND Fred - creepy guy -- but interesting. I would have loved to get into his mind - more then just a paragraph. I'm rooting for him and his new life.
I'm sure this book will help all the modifications in the Eclipse movie with the Volture in Seattle - and what liars they are. I thought it was interesting that Bree tried to give Edward the truth in her thoughts.. That was surprising.
Anyway -- we all know the ending for Bree - Soooo not a good ending.
It was weird that they didn't have any chapter breaks and it was just page, after page of a short story. I didn't expect that.
Don't purchase the book - it's not worth it... but DO read it for free on-line- especially if you are a Twilight fan. It's only going to be available for one month - free.
When you get to the on-line book - the "contents tab" breaks it into pages. This helps when you can't read 200 pagers in one sitting. It's easier to find where you left off... just a hint I found out..
Did you read it?? What did you think? I guess, I would have liked more in depth detail or a longer life of Bree and more love story with Diego.. Very sad ending for Diego too... Victoria is evil!
