> Huh. From the preview, I felt like the writer shoehorned an artificial contemporary Lindsey Lohan esque personality for Gwen that there's no actual basis for. It actually sorta irked me. It would be like if Harry Osborn started talking Shakespearian for no reason (okay, obviously not that bad, but still I wasn't a fan...). You can give her a personality by taking cues from earlier books and expanding it the best you can... not creating something out of nothing. But I'm probably in the minority of not being very excited about this book based on the preview.

That's because they never really gave her a personality before. Seriously, she was the most generic character to ever exist and is looked back on by fanboyism as the greatest woman ever just because of nostalgia. If she hadn't died she would be just another ex of Pete's.

I agree in that I think the melodrama about Gwen's death is WAY overplayed and I have no nostalgia for her. I'm just a stickler for continuity and people being out of character.
