After reading the twilight saga, I was sceptical that this book would be any good- either a let down or too similar to twilight. However I found this book almost better than twilight. It takes a while to get into as very little is explained in the beginning but it doesnt take too long to get really interesting. The great thing about Stephanie meyers writing is that she lets little bits of information out at a time, so even though at the beginning you may not understand, a bit later the story line becomes quite clever and u realise whats been goin on. I read this book in 3 days, I cudnt put it down and I think it would be a gr8 book to adapt into a film. I feel this book had a lot more imagination than the twilight saga, as there are so many similar vampire storys out at the moment. If u enjoyed twilight than definitely read this, u might prefer it and dont be put off by the confusing beginning as it all becomes clear quite quickly. Overall i found this book one of the best iv read recently and really enjoyed the suspense and drama, afterall there is nothing worse than a book thats spends ages describing things but has a rubbish and boring plot line. If u do enjoy this book, u may want to try The Handmaids Tale by Margaret attwood as it is similar. Brilliant book, a must read, can't wait until Stephanie Meyer writes another book!
