Product description

Bella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Bella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Bella, the person Edward holds most dear. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.

The hype surrounding Twilight sneaked up on me - suddenly there were movies and twi-hards and all these screaming teens and I hadn't even realised Twilight the book existed. As a lover of fantasy and science fiction, I felt it was necessary to at least give it a go, despite my reservations. Part of me had hoped to be proved wrong.

As an intelligent female, I found Twilight insulting. The writing (as opposed to the plot) is extremely immature - I found the narrative to be as well written as a low-grade Year 8 English creative essay. The characters are two dimensional, and seem unable to form any of their own initiative. Any male characters who are not Edward are portrayed as being simple, slow, an wildly unobservant of the world around them. Edward should be the anti-hero for young girls! He is overprotective, isolates Bella, and treats her as though she is completely helpless.

Bella is also poorly written and have the charisma of a plank of wood.

Want vampires with bite? Try Charlaine Harris. Twilight is weak, spineless, and may as well have been written by a thirteen year old.

Why have so few people reviewed this book?
Because they saw the film and were impressed.
Then their mate told them about the book.

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
