Twilight is not the sort of book I would normally read, as I don't tend to read mainstream bestsellers, and although I did enjoy the Harry Potter books, I believe that that series is of a rare high quality within the fantasy genre, which most books are not. But a friend who is into quite similar...

“The Twilight Saga”

published 24/04/2009

ProThe most gripping books I have read in a long time

ConsN/A

To put it simply – I love to read. While, it hasn’t always been a favourite pastime of mine, Harry Potter changed that, they really got me more into books, and subsequently, I have read them all several times over. I then got bored of them, and didn’t know what else to go to, stuck in the belief...

Twilight – Stephenie Meyer Introduction I had heard lots of my friends on Facebook going on about this book, Twilight. I hadn’t heard of it, but had been a sign with the word Twilight on it, advertising the film, so I assumed this was what they were all obsessed with and personally I found it...

Not for me

Proeasy to read; no complicated plot twists

Conslack of plot; two dimensional characters

Several years ago I read and loved Anne Rice’s ‘Interview with a Vampire’: it was sensuous, enthralling and transported me through time and place. Some years before that I had read and quite enjoyed a series of books whose titles I can’t even remember which dealt with vampires in love with young...

Projust about everything

Consoccasionally slightly lacking

I tend do things slightly backwards, which may explain why I read the Twilight saga AFTER I had watched Twilight. I thoroughly enjoyed the Twilight (and although had not read the books) thought that it captivated Edward's and Bella's love for one another beautifully. As I said this was before the...

ConsUn-putdownable!

I first heard of Twilight last summer, but thought nothing of it. Over the following couple of months, I kept hearing it mentioned on various forums and websites, and so my curiosity was piqued. But did I really want to read a stereotypical vampire love story? Well, the answer was yes. The genre...

ConsMaybe A Bad Message, Sometimes Too Detailed

Bella has moved to Forks and she isn't happy about it; she has moved from a sunny life in Arizona with her dippy mother to the rainy, dark lifestyle of her awkward sheriff father. She is instantly accepted in her new school, with many of the boys falling over her every word (despite her view that...

ConsIt ends! Thank god it's just the start of the saga

Twilight is the first novel in the bestselling saga by Stephenie Meyer. It tells the story of Bella Swan, who moves to the small town of Forks, where she soon finds that some of the towns residents aren't entirely human, and she falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen. Twilight is essentially...

“Is it love or lust?”

published 26/11/2008

ProOne of the best books in the world

ConsNONE

I personally decided to read this book thanks to looking at a poster in a cinema called "AMC" about 2-3 months ago. This poster had Edward Cullen on the front, with the writing "See EDWARD CULLEN in Twilight" underneath. Then right next to that poster was one exactly the same apart from the...

Twilight, the first book in the Twilight saga has taken the world by storm. The book by Stephanie Meyer was first published in 2005. It is a New York Times bestseller and has been picked my Amazon.com as a 'Best Book of the decade . . so far'. These are just two of the awards it has been given...

“A Book With Bite!”

published 04/02/2009

ProInteresting, entertaining, good characters

ConsSlightly teeny at times

I had heard of the Twilight series of books by Stephenie Meyer about six months ago, when my American friends were raving about them. At first, I didn't bother with the novels, as they were teen fiction and I'm rather older. Then at Christmas, I decided to buy a copy of the first book - Twilight...

I don't know how long we sat there without moving. It could have been hours. Eventually the throb of my pulse quieted, but he didn't move or speak again as he held me, I knew at any moment it could be too much, and my life could end - so quickly that I might not even notice. And I couldn't think...

Product Information : Twilight - Stephenie Meyer

Manufacturer's product description

When seventeen-year-old Isabella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father she expects that her new life will be as dull as the town itself. In spite of her awkward manner and low expectations, she finds that her new classmates are drawn to this pale, dark-haired new girl in town. But not, it seems, the Cullen family. These five adopted brothers and sisters obviously prefer their own company and will make no exception for Bella. Bella is convinced that Edward Cullen in particular hates her, but she feels a strange attraction to him, although his hostility makes her feel almost physically ill. He seems determined to push her away - until, that is, he saves her life from an out of control car. Bella will soon discover that there is a very good reason for Edward's coldness. He, and his family, are vampires - and he knows how dangerous it is for others to get too close.
