2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, April 14, 2011
By 
This review is from: The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide (Hardcover)
I so looked forward to reading this guide, and am sad to say it was a huge disappointment. About 10% of the book is new information, the rest is just rehashed from the books themselves, twilight lexicon or author's website. There is some nice new background information on Alice, and some of the less central characters, but the information on most characters is a direct repeat from the books. You think SM could have thrown in just a little bit of new information and given us something, or even some basic information about future events, i.e. did Charlie marry Sue? The story timeline, fan drawings and Cullen car overviews were annoying filler and made me feel ripped off. Particularly the story timeline. I'd say most people wanting to read the guide are fans, so hey, we know the basics of what happened in the books, trust us! I came away feeling the whole thing was put together by the publisher's, with barely a look in from SM. The really annoying thing is it could and should have been SO much better.
