Because I hate to be such a negative nellie about this, I gave the book 3 stars. It wasn't terrible, but it didn't give me what I had anticipated. The good points: it gave detailed back stories and information/stats on every main character in the Twilight books. It was interesting and informative. Alice's back story was a surprise, and it was really good to get that info. Hands down, it was the best part of this book. I also enjoyed some of the information on the other covens.
But, really, there was SO much missing. Why no information on Vasilii, Sasha's immortal child, and why she created him/how she kept him secret, etc...this is referred to so much in Breaking Dawn, and in this book, but never any specifics! Why no info. on who is Embry's father? Again, something talked about and referenced in this book, but no specifics. No information on what became of "smelly Fred" from the Bree Tanner novella and how he escaped (or, no real details). And why, oh why, Stephenie, did you include outtakes that you had already posted to your website?! What a waste of pages...and a true disappointment.
Things I was REALLY hoping to see in this book: Some kind of surprise/spoiler/excerpt from a future book, more outtakes, especially from Edward's perspective (Midnight Sun...), information that I didn't already know...was it really necessary to include character descriptions (i.e., eye color: red/black, vampire)?! I mean, this is all outlined in the series, and most of the people who will purchase this book have already read the series.
I hate to say it, but I'm disappointed...there has been SO much hype for this book, without necessity. Any fan would probably be able to tell you most everything in the book. I'm also disappointed in Meyer. She has alluded at writing/publishing Midnight Sun countless times, only to further disappoint. I'm really beginning to think that Twilight (and the resulting series, including the Bree Tanner novella) was just a one hit wonder for her. I'd love to see her really commit to these characters and follow through on the "loose end" story lines. I'm hoping that the egregious gaps in this book are because she intends to do that.
Sorry to take this review into a rant, but it's just how I'm feeling. I hope that I didn't give out too many spoilers, and that this helps you to make a purchase. If you are a fan who reads the websites/blogs or who has read and re-read the Twilight series, you probably do not need to purchase this book (unless you want it on your bookshelf next to the rest of your books). If you're new to the Twilight world, get this book because it will probably satisfy a lot of your questions. You still may, however, come away wanting more...
This book was amazing, beautiful words, and illustrations fit for them. The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide is a very in depth view at the characters and backstory. An illustrated journey into the world of Twilight. It makes me almost desperate to re-read the series.
There's so much information that we, as readers, would never have known about the characters, events, and mysteries in the world of Stephenie Myer and her books.
I only had one complaint about this book. At times it seemed very repetitive, but honestly, with a book like this, there's no way it can't be repetitive at some point, with all the characters and their stories weaving together in so many different ways.
This is a must-read for fans of The Twilight Saga.
I have written way too much here; given a million spoilers away. Basically, I'd give this book ten (10) stars, if I could!
BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU LOVE THE TWILIGHT SAGA BOOKS!!!
