Product description

When 17 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. But 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.

Seriously.The story has no plot,the characters are boring.Bella Swan is an insult to women and girls and Edward Cullen is an insult to vampires.Don't waste £6.33 on this book,you know,with the credit crunch.

Wow! Epic!

By R.D-Diaz 12 Jul 2010 5

This book is marketed for young adults but definitely will tend to cross age barriers and will be loved by adults alike.

Story of Edward and Bella's love for each other. Told in first person and only from the perspective of Bella and of what she knows, making the history of Edward and his family a coveted mystery.

Compelling but lightly written compared to other vampire centered stories.

Bella is a very believable character, you either like her or hate her. Edward described as pale, anemic greek-like beauty who hated what he had become but was thankful at the same time thankful in a way to the one who converted him.

Compelling, addictive and melancholy read and page a turner. It will leave you wanting for more!

I just loved these books I read them all twice al ready. Puts you in another world

By Kim 08 Nov 2009 5

Whew, what a page turner! Meyer's writing skill is slight too amateur to like or enjoy, but her storytelling skill is superbly addictive and absorbing that u'll forget about the cons if u notice any. Meyer easily pulls u into the mind and body of the heroine so that u'll crave for super cool (actually i find him hot) vampire Edward Cullen just like the heroine does. Forget eerie creepy vampires, but this is smashing smexy vampire to die for. Romantic forbidden love, true love, obsessive love ... it's simply mesmerizing.

I'm 37yo avid non-fiction reader (e.g. Napoleon Hil, Carnegie, Peale, Kiyosaki, etc). Last time i read fiction was JK Rowling at 27yo, and before that JR Tolkien at 7yo. Since everyone's raving, comparing or saying this is the next series to dig into, so i gave Meyer a try. I'm glad i did. Btw, i recommend to read the book before watching the movie.

Review quote

The sexiest vampire tale for years arrived in Stephenie Meyer's TWILIGHT, about teenage Bella's chaste romance with a beautiful vampire boy. Their intensely erotic feelings are endangered by more predatory types. Guaranteed to suck in sulky 13+ girls for hours. THE TIMES Will keep readers madly flipping the pages of Meyer's tantalizing debut. Publishers Weekly
