I'm not going to say I regretted reading it, because I didn't. No, it's not Midnight Sun - but she never said it would be either. Although I would totally read it if she ever publishes it.
Anyway, it's pretty much Twilight. There were many times I would read it as the original parts in my head, and then I'd confuse myself. I mostly did this with Edythe/Edward parts. Because of this, I couldn't read it in one sitting. I read it in spurts over the last week.
I still liked the story. Had I read it this way originally, I would have enjoyed it this way.
Except the end. That was bull plop. I get why she did it - "to test an alternative ending". But don't say you're writing a Twilight gender swap and then completely ruin the end. The real point of it was to keep fans from demanding the other three books. I guess that was a smart move on her part.
Would I recommend this book? Not really, unless you're a Twihard. It was cool for a 10th anniversary thing, I'll give her that. It was a fun way to reread the book.
