Re: Life and Death — so what do you think about the whole id

Well I am REALLY hoping that tomorrow I will finally have a free moment to actually, you know, read this book: been absolutely flat out these past few days! I'll report back as soon as I do. I suppose for me — as you know — the spell was broken back in 2008, so I can afford to be intrigued, without...

Re: Life and Death — so what do you think about the whole id

Well of course they are. it's been a long sad drought for them lately (*grin*). I am so looking forward to tomorrow evening, when I plan on tipping back my airplane seat, pulling out this doorstop of a book (gah! I'm tempted to do what my mother does with oversized books and chop it in half with a ...

Re: Sequels

MOD'S NOTE: (*clears throat uncertainly*) Hey everyone! I feel a little weird breaking into Mod mode — very out of the habit of this, y'know? And I apologize for taking two days to notice this convo. Been a bit distracted (it's been a CRAZY couple of days in my RL) or I might have seen it sooner. B...

Re: Life and Death (**SPOILERS**) — for those who have read

Very true. And yet...did you struggle w/ Midnight Sun? I definitely felt Edwardyness through and through there (*grin*). Though of course by the time we read MS, we'd all absorbed so much Edward through Bella's POV I suppose it might not count. On second thoughts though, that makes no sense. If it ...

Re: Life and Death — so what do you think about the whole id

Weirdly nostalgic, isn't it? (*grin*) I know what you mean about being different and yet disconcertingly familiar. I've only read a couple of chapters, and frustratingly, it doesn't look like I'll have a spare second to read any more for the next couple of days because I am of course — what is it w...

Re: Life and Death (**SPOILERS**) — for those who have read

Ok, so I have not even got past the introduction, but there was something there that made me so happy I simply had to post about it NOW. I truly had the best time ever creating this new version. I love Beau and Edythe with a passion I didn't see coming and their story has made the fictional world o...

Life and Death — so what do you think about the whole idea?

This is a thread for people to talk about Life and Death even if they haven't necessarily read it yet. ** NO SPOILERS PLEASE!! ** What do you think about the release of this new book? Does that seem like an intriguing idea to you? Gimmicky? How do you think reversing Edward and Bella's positions wo...

Life and Death (**SPOILERS**) — for those who have read it!

A thread to talk about Life and Death, Stephenie's new gender-reversed version of Twilight. So what did you think? Like it? Hate it? Bored by it? Intrigued by it? Did you think changing Edward and Bella's positions redressed the gender-imbalance Stephenie has been criticised for in the original nov...

Re: Me, Myself, and I

Hmmm. I feel part of the reason I might not "get" the series is that I'm asexual, and have no interest in romantic relationships. Yup. I have to agree with you there -- as far as I'm concerned, what Stephenie does breathtakingly well is romance: capturing the heady thrill of being in love. Compared...

Hahaha. My dear, I so totally understand the feeling. Both sides of it! Welcome to the Lex.
