3.0 out of 5 stars Good but far from great, 7 May 2008
This review is from: Twilight: Twilight, Book 1 (Twilight Saga) (Paperback)
I had high hopes for this one seeing as everyone seems to love it. And I was hooked by the premise.

To be honest, I never really warmed up to Bella or Edward for that matter. At first it was fine, it was intriguing. I was waiting for the moment she would find out about Edward. Up until that point, all good, though the numerous references of Edward's eyes, gracefulness and the fact she was dizzy around him all the time started to wear thin really quickly. But when she does find out - which was a little of an anti-climax for me - it wasn't much.

The best parts came in the last 150 pages when finally the book began get some momentum and Bella actually became interesting - and there was action!! I always thought there was something missing in the romance - I wanted to go beyond Edward's good looks, his charm and his eyes and the fact that he was 'dazzling'. Alright we get he's a god in her eyes...really.

The emotions conveyed by Meyer are very vivid though, you can't help but be completely absorbed. And there's some good humour amongst it all. If I'm going to read the other books, I'll be more interested in characters like Jacob and Billy. But somehow I think Bella is always going to be Edward obsessed...I hope there will be some good separation between them at some point to spice this story up a bit.
