Read from June 05 to 06, 2010 — I own a copy

This is less a story and more of a drawn out attempt to explain/justify every criticism regarding her mythology and general downhill spiral in the first four books. Could have been interesting; unfortunately it wasn't. (It was, however, leagues better than Breaking Dawn, so there's that, I guess.)

Also, someone please inform Ms. Meyer that novellas do not have to be written in one long, unbroken stream of thought. If this was an attempt to illustrate the never-ceasing consciousness of a vampire, then it was an epic fail. Breaks are allowed to delineate scenes or for the passage of time, and especially when the writing is subpar, it is only polite to give the reader a break every now and then. Geez.
