This was great if you were annoyed by the style of writing in "Twilight". I laughed out loud, especially in the beginning. It is a good parody that emphasizes Bella's stupidity, obsessiveness, and self-absorption. There are quite a few direct references to the real books.

Here was a fun section:
"I typed in a single word: Vampre Google asked, "Did you mean "vampire?"" I said, "yes."
I felt overwhelmed and confused by the results: "Nosferatu," "The Buffy Summers Workout," "Kristen STewart's Onset Romance," "Midnight Sun leaked," "Robert Pattinson Excellent Blues Singer."
Weird. What did any of this have to do with vampires?"

I pretty much laughed through the whole book. It's short (I don't know if could have handled too much more parody) and enjoyable.
