For me, with the long gap between movies being released, this book made twilight come back to life. It has beautiful drawings and easy going reading, great if your missing twilight!

  Very Beautiful

I read all of the orginal books, and I enjoyed them so much and I have always loved graphic novels, so I knew I had to buy this. The art work involved is amazing, real credit to the artist. I highly recommend this for any Twilight fan. Very, very impressed.

i didnt know what to expect but being a big fan i wanted to see how twilight could be imaged through a graphical book. when i recieved it 2 days ago i must have red the book 4 times the images themselves are brilliant and young kim has done twilight proud. i would recommend this book to all fans. i gave this book full marks and it deserves all the stars and i hope these graphical novels continue through the whole saga...

At first I hesitated in buying this novel, believing it may be a bit of a parody over the Manga that I love and an attempt at copying that.

Being a reader of the original books (and prefering them to the movie) I needed recaps from the book as I'd seen the films a few times after reading them and forgetting which parts of the story were 'real' or not etc.

So I purchased this novel today and had a quick read from the start, I ended up finishing 30minutes later nearly halfway throught the book. Firstly it's the artwork, it's so beautiful and captivating that you don't want to tear yourself away. Secondly it's how you see how Stephenie saw the characters when she created them which is personally magical for me.

Thirdly it's how the characters are so much more to the book than the 'modern' films in comparison, it fits just right and after you get used to the way the characters are drawn you're straight back into picturing the books again.

Fourthly is how it's so much like a Manga, in the end I had to finish the book in the same evening (A habit with any Manga reading is that I can never put it down once I've started!) it is done perfectly (Not back to front though) and sent my emotions going in certain places, sometimes just the sheer beauty of the artwork and sometimes just because you don't have to picture the scene as it is there and you can just imagine the situation and feeling of it.

It is absolutely wonderful and I am not disappointed nor feel I have wasted my money on a short read, I very much recommend it, I now have a strong urge (Which I already had previously) to re-read the Twilight books to see how accurae the Manga is or whether they have adjusted some parts of it or I am confused with the books and the films now!

Even if you are starting on Twilight I would recommend this first if that was prefered, you won't get the whole 4 books worth but this is a good start and will gradually get you there.

I really can't wait for the next volume, this is definitely going to be a completed set for me! :)

  Outstanding Artwork

| | See all Tez1968's reviews (3)

This book is an absolute must for any twilight fan. Outstanding artwork and its lovely to see the characters as Stephanie Meyer saw them in her head as she wrote twilight. Hope Vol.2 comes out soon and definately hope Young Kim uses her talent to bring us the rest of the twilight saga in graphic detail. Alice especially looks the way you picture her in your head as you're reading the books. Love it. Can't wait for more.

A amazing and beautiful book and a must have for any Twi-fan. The pictures are fantastic and it was wonderful getting a idea what Stephenie Meyer's saw in her head while writing Twilight.
But like some of the other reviewers I also wish there was a little more colour in some of the pictures.
This is a collectable for the future and a book that I could read again and again (just like all the other books from the saga) All I need now is Vol 2 ...So hurry please :D

  Beautiful Graphics

| | See all GEISHAJ's reviews (45)

I thought this book was really beautifully drawn and a great companion to the Twilight series. It's a great twist on the story and nice to see the characters how Stephenie Meyer imagined them. Young Kim is a talented artist. The only downside (and it's a very small one) is i would have liked a bit more colour in the drawings.

I am a huge fan foremostly of the twilight books and the wonderful why in which stephanie meyers writes but i also love the film and that way the book has been adapted to being turned into a film, but this book out does the film in so many ways!!
The graphic novel is an amazing insight into the world of twilight through the eyes of stephanie meyers.
I wish is was longers, and i wish we had infomation about when vol 2 was going to be out! also i hoping as im sure everyone else is that there going to do the whole series like this ... what a wonderful addtion to any twilight collectors collection!
