Isabella 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, Isabella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. This is the the 1st book in the Twilight Saga.
Average Price: $6.00
As embarassed as I am to admit this, I was OBSESSED with these books when they first came out, same with the movies. I read all the books so quickly, I couldnt put them down. Now Im kind of over all the twilight stuff, but at the time, I loved these.
Absolutely loved this book and the entire series. Usually I am the type of person to read before bed to relax for about an hour or so but I loved this book so much that I read it in a day - could not put it down!
Absolutely LOVED this book! I loved the whole series. The story kept me captivated from start to finish. I read each book in 2 days as i could not put it down. I really wish i could find another series that kept me soo interested. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Very easy read.
I bought the books when I was in high school and started reading them, good series not so sure about the movies but thats with most books turned movies. Great series though.
I bought the first book when I was in my late teens. I've always enjoyed fantastical creatures, and vampire stories were some of my favourites. Being that I was part of the target demographic, I thought I would get at least some enjoyment out of this, but I was wrong.
This isn't worth the paper it's written on. The writing quality is lacklustre at best, with a pathetic cliche of a female protagonist who fawns over the pretty new boy in school. This book tries its best to paint Bella as not only someone relatable, but an actual heroine, and the author has failed terribly on both counts. She is neither relatable nor someone to look up to as she seems absolutely bound and determined to both heavily rely on the male love interests while simultaneously pushing them away in dramatic fashion.
I was hopeful that the second book may remedy the situation and push the story forward in some way, but sadly, it did not. There are plenty of other fantasy series out there that I would recommend, but this isn't one of them.
I had hoped to like this book. One of my friends loves this series and she never reads, another of my friends who is even more of a book worm then myself hated it. I had hoped that I would like it, but honestly I think that this is one of the worst series that I have tried to get through. I managed to read 2 of the books then gave up. There are so many better vampire books out there.
Quand ce livre est sorti, j'étais une jeune adolescente, j'ai lu ce livre en quelques jours seulement et la collection en même pas un mois. Je rêvais du prince charmant, mais rendu à l'âge adulte, je réalise que ce livre est bien bon, mais irréel. Je n'aime pas le fait qu'une humaine puisse tomber en amour avec un vampire. J'aime pas non plus le fait qu'il n'y ai pas beaucoup de sentiments. Bella est toujours-là, sans sentiments et ne s'exprime pas. Je n'aime plus ce roman et encore moins les films.
When this book was released, I really enjoyed it and purchased all of the Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer. Would I purchase them now that I am in my 30s? Probably not. As a teenager though, these books were a great easy read.
Used to be obsessed with this book when it was popular but know I look at it and wonder what the heck I was thinking. Written terribly, total obvious outcomes, and very unlikeable characters (sparkly vampires).,
I was not a fan of this book. It isn't very well written: it seems like every other sentence ends in "...", and the characters in this book are very static and boring. I prefer books that have strong female leads, and twilight is the opposite of that. It seems like every time Bella goes out of Edward's sight, she almost gets killed. The ultimate female relying on a male. I don't think this book has any kind of role models for young women. The message is basically to fall in love with the most attractive boy you meet, even if he is moody and dangerous.
