ok, so im not what you would call the average reader of this kind of genre, ive certainly never read anything like it before! but i loved this book.
ok, i will admit i watch the movie before i read the books, total sin, i know! but i would never heard about twilight otherwise.
This story has many core themes running through it, love, good v evil the struggle between head and heart and many of the usual themes these "teenage books" often have, acceptance to fit in, first love, finding friends and the akward "coming of age" feelings.
However i would not simply class this as a book for teens, im an adult and i enjoyed this book immensely, bella's feelings are something we can all relate too and i dont think this book should be classed as anything to do with age.
ok, i will admit the writting isnt great, but i dont think that matters here, nobody is claiming meyer is the new austen or bronte, but unless you are reading this book from an academic perspective it makes little difference.
Meyer represents the average teen girls feelings of awkwardness and embarressment very well, and often Bella's feelings towards Edward can be a little overbearing, but isnt everyone a little over the top with their first love? as for Edward, well as a woman, need i say more? i think anyone would happily swap places with Bella here.
In summary, i loved this book, it kept me locked away for hours until i read it all, i literally couldnt put it down and i would recommend it to anyone, especially if it isnt usually your "type" of book.
