This was really bad, even for her. Oh, god, I'm so disgusted with this part, and I don't really understand why it was included. She was too perfect, I realized with a crushing wave of despair. There was no way this goddess could ever belong with me. That only vampires can achieve this level of "perfection" that society constantly forces on us? Because there is no other explanation that works well here and I'm really trying to give Meyer the benefit of the doubt and throw her a bone.
The issue with this theory is, there's no indication in the book that this is an unrealistic view. Actually quite the opposite happens later in that same scene: I had a new definition of beauty. I don't think I need to go into why this is problematic, so I'll just leave that there for your critique. I'm speaking specifically about society's constant pressure on women and girls to be as thin as possible, many times to the detriment of their physical and emotional health. When Beau describes Edythe, he focuses so heavily on the sharp angles of her bones and it perpetuates the idea that these characteristics make her more beautiful than others.
I find these descriptions irresponsible and feel there could have been a better way to describe her. So let's talk about the ending.
This part will have spoilers beyond this point. This is your one and only warning. Yes, it's re-written -- horribly, if I'm being honest. I wouldn't have had an issue with the change if it had actually been written without the massive amounts of info-dumping.
It reads like Meyer decided last minute that she wanted to only do 2 chapters of the gender swap which she mentions in the Forward , realized she spent all of her deadline time on re-writing the entire book, and quickly wrote an ending hours before she emailed it to her editor. She crams the werewolf history, volturi history, rules of being a vampire, and Beau's human funeral altogether and it's just so goddamn messy. It also makes the insta-love look even worse because at least Bella had 3 other books and a pining Jacob to consider leaving Edward.
It was just an overall hot ass mess that seemed so out of place. This is why I said they just let Meyer do whatever the hell she wants; half that stuff would have never flown with a debut novel or any novel that desired to actually be, you know, good.
Would I recommend this and should you read it? Hard to say. My first response is, "Oh, god, no. Don't waste your money.
But then the other half of me enjoys the suffering of my fellow book lovers and is considering downloading this as a gag joke to both of my lovely co-bloggers. Because that's really all this trite, wish-fulfilling, wankfest of a re-imaginging is good for, and I really, really need to stop being so damn curious about everything.

The full dream-cast list can be found here. Meanwhile, there were some other fun reveals in Meyer's blog sesh: Like the fact that, yes, she does believe Beau's shield will come into play at some point in his new vamp life. Summit Ent.
Maybe it would be when they have a reunion with the Denali clan. Being so strong at first, Beau would probably be a little cocky.
We also now know exactly what it would be like if Bella and Edward were to ever meet their gender-flipped counterparts. Edward and Edythe might start out castigating each other for being so reckless with the humans—lots of projected self-loathing. Bella and Beau would roll their eyes.
Bella would never say it out loud, but she might wonder what Edythe saw in that totally normal human boy, and Beau likewise," Stephenie wrote. BTW, Nessie? Like, ever.
