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.

The book is far too boring if you ask me. Though some may not agree with me I think it is okay written but she should have added flare and adventure not just fights that don't mean anything

Twilight was my first "bridge" to vampire romance and the return to reading daily several genres of books. My love for other worlds beyond the pages was always an addiction and this book hit the target.
So about Bella, she was to me a very grown up character and very well created heroin. With her soft, quiet personality, she is the image that simple is beautiful.
Edward was the prince charming that everyone dreamed of at that age. Protective and dangerous, a vampire should you imagine, that falls hopelessly in love with a weak mortal woman.
This two along with the feelings that words can take effect on readers along this ride created a recipe for success that took over the world by storm and entered in our tv and movie screens to always remember love.

The plot is not written very well at all. The characters are undefined and static. I think the love between Edward and Bella is real but if it moved slower it would have been a much better book. The only other thing I wish the author would have added was a little REAL drama and kept the love in the background. I would not recommend this book.

Like most things in life there will be people who love a certain thing and there will be those who absolutely hate it.
This book (and saga) is certainly one of them. Given the feedback from friends and relatives I approached this book with an open mind. To my surprise I didn't find it as painful as I was told to expect.
It's not the worst book I've read but neither is it the greatest.
I'm far from classifying myself as a "Twi-hard" but I've no problem in saying that I kind of enjoyed the book and it's little bit of forbidden love.

Unlike previous reviews that have been written for this book mine will not have unwarranted capital letters and exclamation points (In the intrest of your sanity).
This novel has a very boring, plain and not-very-well-described main character - Bella. This was most likely done in an effort so the tween females reading the novel can imprint their own personalities and looks onto her, and have vampire fantasies.
There is no denying that the dominant reading portrays females as damsels in distress, unintelligent and always in need of a male to be around.
In my opinion, Stephenie Meyer should have focused more on the vampire side of the story - going into more depth with those characters and their abilities. In addition, to, of course giving the main characters - Edward aswell as Bella, personality. There is literally no word-painting in this novel.
Overall, Your'e going to read it anyway because of how successful it is therefore this review is redundant.
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
