The only problem is it is quite difficult to get a book out I end up turning the whole thing over just to get on book.
When you sit down to read one of the books it feels like you've been transported to another world where anything is possible. As soon as Edward Cullen is mentioned your instantly hooked on the series he's so mysterious that you need to know more. The saga's one of those that you can read over and over again.
I would recommend this to any Twilight fan and to somebody who hasn't read the series yet. You won't be disappointed.
There are not quite the words to describe what an impact this has had on me. I am an intelligent independent 26 yr old woman, and I have been captivated like a naive 13 yr old. It feels wonderful! I read all 4 books (some 2200 pages) in 5 days. I barely spoke to anyone, I stopped to make food (but read while I ate). When I finished a book, despite my very sincere intentions to stop a while before starting the next one - I couldn't do it. Stephenie Meyer must have worked witchcraft in her words, because I am addicted. When I finished Breaking Dawn, I felt so strongly that I didn't want to let go of the saga that I immediately re-read it. Its irrational, but I love it.
In Twilight the basis of a timeless romance is laid. We meet Bella Swan: a clumsy, pale, awkward and yet pretty girl. A girl who never sees herself as others see her. This is a character that every single girl out there can relate to. Bella meets Edward. He's mysterious, gorgeous, unobtainable and everything about him draws her and us, the readers, into him. You want him as much as she does. When she's excited - so are you. This is the essence of why so many people love this book. We all felt like we were falling in love with him. Compared to normal boys, he's Adonis with uncompromised charm. Add that to the fact that he is tortured and utterly respectable and you have an uber-hero.
Naturally this perfect attraction faces its challenges. Conflict arises from obsessive vampire foes, the ultimate vampire "police", werewolves, personal sacrifice, love triangles and good old Biology. How could you get bored?! How could you put it down?
I don't know - I'm still in the moment. I hope you think this is enough to entice you... you'll really be missing out otherwise. The only question left is are you Team Edward, or Team Jacob?
A five star book for me is one that I have to tear myself away from and these have to be amongst the better 5 star books I've read recently. I could not put them down, regardless of whether I fit in the target deomographic or not. I have no idea why I was so enamoured with this particular story but it just grabbed me, literally from the first chapter. It has it's flaws, and at times those flaws tried to pull me away from the pages while I wrestled with my beliefs but never did I feel like I couldn't go on. I'm actually mystified why this is such a great series, I wish I could put my finger on it but it escapes me. I am fond of a bit of vampire lit, it's true, but this goes beyond that....I think. I can't say the writing is superlative so it's not that.....but what is it? I wish I knew. Answers on a postcard, please.
Bella is a complete feminists' nightmare and I can see why that would put a lot of people off of her, but at 17 love is blind so I'm willing to forgive Bella on that score. Edward is so uber male that he fairly reeks testosterone and again, that may grate on some readers but lets put things in perspective, he's the ultimate predator and has had nearly a century of dominating his prey so on that score I'm willing to forgive him his overly masculine nature. This nurture/love thing is new for him too......Read more ›
