it was ok
bookshelves: young-adult

This book is nothing like Twilight. I found it on a booklist for Twilight read-alikes, and I understand why it was included, I’m just saying – it’s not like Twilight. In fact, if you didn’t like Twilight, you may like this book. The protagonist is as full of self-confidance as Bella is full of self-doubt. Whereas Bella’s relationship with her family is peripheral, Viviane is surrounded by family. She’s part of a pack after all. She’s a werewolf. In the end Viviane’s dilemna is not far from Bella’s; she wishes she could have a friend outside the pack. The theme is a perennial favorite with young adult fiction – finding where you fit in outside the stifling structure of one’s family. I didn’t like this one because it’s too transparent. Too obvious. The angst is spelled out too clearly.

Shannon Nothing like Twilight, eh? A more ringing endorsement has yet been uttered. I'll be sure to read it.
