I love all the Twilight Saga books, I've listened to them so many times that I know most of them off by heart, when listening to it I know the words coming next, but I still love listening to them over and over. I was so excited to see a new Twilight Saga book. I saw the negative reviews saying that "Life and Death" is virtually identical but switching the genders but it didn't put me off, I love Twilight Saga so much, and repetition is something I love rather than dislike and thought it'd be an interesting twist on the same thing. However, it is almost exactly word for word the same with only slight variations on the names to switch the gender and the wording occasionally modified very slightly, but only with occasional words. I never thought I could dislike a Twilight Saga book, but I just can't like this one, there's nothing new in it.

It was great seeing this story with the genders swapped for most of the characters! Beau is a much more relatable character and doesn't seem as self pitying as Bella did at times. However I feel that the gender reversal should have made more of an impact throughout the book. However the ending does have a difference... no spoilers! I know that Stephenie has said that this is a stand alone but I'd love to have seen where it could have gone! Well worth the listen and my advice try not to compare it all the way through!

Would you listen to Twilight Tenth Anniversary/Life and Death Dual Edition again? Why?
I would i found this book more in depth then the Twilight series and very much enjoyed it
What did you like best about this story?
Compared to Twilight, Bella was an amazing character but her common use of very large words seemed out of place for her character and would be better fit for Edward who was 100's of years older, in this book the Aged Vampire used the larger words more then the teenage boy it seemed to fit more, he used large words every now and then but i felt as if was melt to try and impress Edith rather then the reader, very enjoyable
Which scene was your favorite?
The Alternate ending, Very much a large surprise and sad, LOVED IT
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Never presume to think you know the story.
Any additional comments?
I truly loved this story but every chapter was so full of details until the last chapter for me at least, the last chapter felt as if New moon,Eclipse and breaking dawn were all written into this one chapter, granted it was well done but from every previous chapter being so in depth i was surprised at the last chapter
