From celebrated American teen-lit author Stephenie Meyer, Twilight is the first novel in her blockbuster vampire romance saga. The multi-million copy-shifting best-seller was released in 2005 and has already sparked a two films starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, Twilight and New Moon, with more in the pipeline. Placing teenagers into the world of vampires with unique twists on conventional mythology, rarely have readers indentified so strongly with a work of literature.

Moving from sunny Phoenix, Arizona, to the wet and windy climes of Forks, Washington, to live with her dad, 17-year old Isabella 'Bella' Swan expects that her new life will be as dull as the town. Whilst the rest of her classmates seems particularly drawn to the pale, dark-haired teenaged girl; the boy she sits next to, Edward Cullen, is particularly frosty, even repulsed by her. When a near fatal accident brings the two together, a reluctant but ever-growing bond forms, blossoming into a romance. However, 'Bella will soon come to realize why it's so dangerous to get close to Edward.

A wonderfully enthralling tale of forbidden love, vampire society and teenage life, Twilight has captivated millions of readers the world over. The journey the characters take through the four novels - Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn - will have you riveted; turning pages faster than a vampire drains blood! We dare you to enter the unique world of 'Bella and the Cullens, and resist the addictive pull of Meyer's perfectly formed prose. Sink your teeth into this one and you'll never look back!

 Teenage Angst.

| | See all soper1991's reviews (3)

If you're not a angst ridden teenager, then this book really isn't for you.
Poorly written and the general idea for the vampires is laughable.

 Over the top piffle!!!

I read this after reading a lot of reviewsthat said this was fantastic, and to disagree with other reviews - this is a kids book. Considering the characters are supposed to be 17 / 18 the conversation is like listening to a bunch of 13 year olds - absolutely pathetic.

I also didn't find it romantic - our hero of the book Edward is a moody, grumpy pain who constantly blows hot and cold with Bella to the point where you just can't understand why she is even interested in him. If a guy treated most women like this he would get dumped!!!! As for the character of Bella herself, clingy, obsessed and a little pathetic. For a character who is supposed to be quite a gutsy girl I just found her a little bit disturbing. How in God's name are we supposed to take her seriously when all she says to Edward is "don't ever leave me", "promise me you will always be with me" - I mean for God's sake they are 17 years old. You know what love, get through school go to university, get a good job and meet other people, then you might realise there is more to life than a miserable self obsessed family of vampires!!

Hated this it is awful and the other books in the series which I did read hoping they would get better - even worse. Don't waste your money unless you are 14 years old in which case this book is probably great. If you are an adult and want good books about vampires and romance, read Anne Rice instead!

 Female vampire lovers everywhere....

If you tend to like your books to have a romantic side, but with a twist then this book is definately for you. You feel you can relate to the main character, Bella, with her clumsiness and not being absolutely beautiful. However, be warned, after you have come across Edward Cullen your male expectations will rise beyond anything you have felt previously.

Happy Reading :)

 Nothing special

I really do not see what is so special about this book!
Very unoriginal, the characters are not realistic in the slightest and half the book is refering to how 'amazingly perfect' Edward is.
Overall, a huge disappointment.

 Ridiculous excuse for a book

This book is an atrocity and my retina's are permanently scarred for reading this garbage
