The Twilight Companion by Lois H. Gresh

The Twilight Companion: The Unauthorized Guide to the Series
By: Lois H. Gresh
Stars: 3/5
Also reviewed for: TeensReadToo

Just like the title says, this is a companion to the Twilight series. If you are not already a fan, then this obviously won't be for you. It's wise to have read all four books as well, or you might find that some key points will be spoiled for you as you read along.

However, The Twilight Companion is a fun, interesting read. The author is very much a fan and allows you to easily relate to her and her writing. This is not a novel that analyzes or delves into everything Twilight. It's more about relating the Twilight world to other novels and films, as well as the myths surrounding vampires and werewolves throughout the ages.

The Twilight Companion is a fast and interesting read. Though I wasn't as interested in the quizzes included throughout the book, I highly enjoyed the history and facts.

Alea: Yeah, it's not too bad. I wouldn't necessarily say "GO AND BUY THIS!" but if you have it at the library, it might be neat to check out.

My daughter and I enjoyed this book very much. It was full of humor and interesting facts. It makes a great holiday present for a twilight lover.
