The idea that someone would become Edward for someone is such a smart idea! Everyone has changed something about themselves for someone else at some point in their lives, this is just on a grander scale.
This book is smart, funny and well written. It's a really fun read and I did it in one afternoon. There were parts that made me laugh out loud when I read them! My favorite charachter is Rachel, who is no Bella Swan!
If you're a Twilight fan, this is a MUST READ! If you aren't a Twilight fan, it's still funny!
I adore this book. Not only was the premise amusing and just too cute for words, but the characters were seemingly realistic and relatable. Rachel is most definitely one of those girls that is so addicted to Twilight and Edward Cullen, simply no boy will ever compare to the fictional heartthrob. She was also relatively sane for a die-hard Twilight fan, which is one stereotype that I was glad was not personified in the book. As a fan of Twilight, I fancy myself rather sane and definitely still connected to this thing we like to call reality.
I think the only thing that I wasn't so happy with was how far Lewis went with the whole 'becoming Edward Cullen' concept. Maybe I didn't use my imagination enough when I was reading the synopsis, but I was thinking he would fully turn on the Edward gentlemanly charm and maybe do the signature bouffant hairdo. But, no. It goes much deeper than that... almost to the point of sheer chaos. While it was cute, it was definitely straddling the line and teetering on outright creepy.
Becoming Edward was a fun, light-hearted read that can pretty much be read in one sitting. It's an endearing story about how far one guy will change to get the girl with many laugh-out-loud moments that will surely make the people around you think you're as crazy as those silly Twilight fans. ;)
I love the character in the books & the Edward played by RP. With that said I see all the time how many men don't get why we love Edward so much.
This book expresses it perfectly.
And incidentally, I noticed another review that criticised it for British spelling and expressions. But if those of us who are accustomed to British spelling have to put up with American spelling, it should work the same way. Stars should NOT be taken off because the reader can't cope with a few minor differences.
I don't know this author, and I cannot remember how it wound up on my Kindle. But I am pleased that it did.
The typical descriptive passage in Becoming Edward looks like this: "Rachel's eyes were brown and her brown hair was curly and shiny. She had long sexy legs that she liked to show off with high heels." Instead of (for example): "Rachel took one last look in the mirror, making sure the smoky make-up that accentuated her dark brown eyes was unsmudged. She gazed with satisfaction at her long, smooth legs, made to look even longer with four-inch stiletto heels; tossed her shining mahogany curls one last time, and headed back out into the crowded ballroom."
