I slept on Twilight for years because I felt it was for girls. The idea of a girl playing two guys (vampire and werewolf) just seemed like something girls would dream of to make themselves feel better. But I am a person who loves a good story, so after seeing the films with my two female cousins I decided to read the books.
This book (as with all of them) is way better than the film. There is much more detail and more story telling. Twilight Book 1 is a great way to get into the series. It has great characters, besides Bella being a little bit too emo at times, but that's just who she is and I respect Stephenie Meyer for it. Edward and Alice are some of the best characters created, and I am so pro Edward it's crazy. As you will see from my review for New Moon, I hate Jacob with a passion even though it's another great character.
I recommend this book for everyone who is into fantasy fiction, romance or people who just enjoy a good story. Yes this book is every girls dream, but males can enjoy this book too from a different perspective.
