Edward's Twilight is a wickedly irreverent parody of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, and is the first and only book to tell Edward's version of Twilight. Far more faithful to the or

If you keep in mind that this is a parody of Twilight, from Edward's point of view, you can't help but enjoy the humor. The author makes fun of everything from Stephanie Meyer's books. It's a treat, if you're looking for a good laugh. This, coming from a fan of both the books and the movies.

At first this seemed like a funny parody of Twilight. It was humorous at first then started to drag slower and slower. There were some funny references in here. One of my favorites is when Jezebella says "Edwin, I can only describe what I feel in the sense that I tremble for my beloved. Thinking of you makes my heart quiver and knees wobble. My collective soul yearns for your touch." I thought that was very clever and you'd have to know the Twilight soundtrack to get that.

But overall the story

not a great book, read because it sounded funny. It did make me laugh and thats what I was looking for. Something funny and entertaining, that I wouldnt get invested in.

I'd like to start by saying that I do love the Twilight series (books and movies) but I am completely aware of how ridiculous it all is, and I love looking at memes and gifs that make fun of the series and point out all the plot holes, etc. I'm also a fan of Twilight parodies. I really enjoyed Nightlight by The Harvard Lampoon. It was completely ridiculous, idiotic humor, but it was well done. All of this is to say that my hatred of Edward's Twilight had nothing to do with the fact that it was m ...more

I absolutely loved the Twilight series. Saying that, I felt the humor in this book was dead on. Sorry for the pun.

The only thing I didn't like was the ending.

Also, you have to be somewhat culturally literate to get all the references to the vampires, movies, singers, etc.

I would never have bought the book but it was the first one I downloaded for free on my new Kindle. My daughter got it for me for Mothers Day. So, this book will hold a special place in my heart, for that reason alone.

I'm off

Amazingly interesting

I chose this rating because I enjoyed reading it.
Its not like the regular book or movie because its a parody. I have to say;if the regular book wasn't so interesting, this one would have been better.
I loved this story.
The only thing that bothered me about this story is the tomato juice smell because I hate tomato juice lol but nice work.
They should make another like this

Enjoyed them poking fun at twilight.

I am a fan of the twilight books and movies. I found this a comic twist on the original and found myself laughing page after page. Not a book for everyone though. If you don't find it humorous early on then don't continue because the same humor continues though the whole book.

I did not like this book. I is supposed to be humorous and a twist on the original. But it's not even interesting. Anyone could have done a better job. I think this author is obviously jealous of Edward. His 'jokes' are so corny. I did not read the entire novel and chose to throw this one out. That's what everyone does with garbage.
Nov 08, 2016 Patty rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
It's a spoof. Could a spoof be well written? So far I'd say no.
With so many good books and so little time, why would I waste another second out of morbid curiosity? I'm pretty sure I tried reading this grab bag of excrement a year or more ago and couldn't go any further than I am currently. Why bother?!?
If you are a Stephanie Meyer fan drop this book and get the CHEMIST. It's good.

I know this is a parody, but due to it being very blatant about being a parody, to the point of being ridiculous, it was hard to read and be able to enjoy. Very unimaginative, silly and an unfortunate waste of my time. I would not recommend this book even to anyone that enjoys satire or spoofs.

It was a parody. Looking at it in that light, it was pretty good. I laughed at most of the story. It was over the top and exaggerated the original story in a hilarious way. I like that it was written in Edwards POV. It seemed to make even funnier. Good job!

I wanted to like this because I absolutely love parodies and every now and then I did get a chuckle out of this. I'm not in love with it or like it enough to truly give it a 3 star rating. I'd give it a strong 2.5 for the few chuckles I did get but it's definitely something easily forgotten
This was a pretty humorous parody. In some ways I really enjoyed it, but other ways it was a little long. As a Twilight fan I really, really enjoyed the subtle and not-so-subtle refrences towards some of the sillier things in the books and movies. There were some major laugh out loud moments.

I didn't expect it to be a spoof off the book maybe if it was a movie it might have been funny I got a few chuckles off it but I thought it was stupid

An entertaining read

I love parodies! This was no exception, some of the jokes were hilarious. Laughter truly is the best medicine for you.

I am a Twilight fan and I thought this was hilarious. Not a book I would pay for, but borrowed from Amazon prime lending library and laughed through the entire book.
