    The Sonnets by William Shakespeare (LCoale1)
    LCoale1: The emotions of Edward, Bella, and Jacob seem to come straight from these sonnets and, surprisingly, really helped me to understand Shakespeare's emotions and messages. Although the writing styles are about as different as can be, the themes are nearly identical - I swear I found paraphrases of lines of Shakespeare used as thoughts and dialogue in Breaking Dawn, specifically.… (more)

Ok, before I even begin to review this, let's be real here. People are completely crazy over the series, be it crazy in love, or crazy hate. But after watching the first movie that came out, I bought the first book. Necrophilia and beastality aside, I actually thought the first book was not bad. Plus I'm sure all girls dream of having an almost illegally handsome boy fall for you, the nerd/nobody.

So I bought the entire collection.

And then I found myself actually TRYING to finish all 4 books. I would read, then get a bit bored, so I'd close it. After a few days/weeks of not touching it, I would make myself open it to continue reading, and I can say that I was actually glad when I finished it. I liked the first book, but sadly, my interest increasingly faded as I read books 2-4. ( )

By far one of the best collection of books I've read. I know most people do not care for the series, but I absolutely loved it. ( )

The first book delivered storyline, but the characters were almost caricatures, with no even grounding. Edward is too idolised by Bella, who is the ever-ready damsel in distress, finally having found her true love, only to be kidnapped by another, evil monster. The writing was a bit weak, but it certainly had potential.

The second and third books were simply fillers - only the climax of the second book is somewhat exciting, though it is good to see the Bella's character grow beyond the needy and Edward-obsessed girl she is in the first book; her relationship with Jacob is almost mature in nature. Of course, the moment Edward comes back, all that meticulous hard work of character-building goes out the window, and she reverts to Bella 1.0

The last book is arguably a page-turner, but fails to deliver on a lot of things, including the first time Edward and Bella were intimate (he broke the bed; that's how good it was /sarcasm), and her transformation into a vampire.

Overall, it's a good starting novel for teens who don't really read a lot, but certainly not a notable work of fantasy. Twilight is a fad, not a classic. ( )

I read these books about a year before they became a fast selling
, movie pumping sensation. I absotely loved them as a long standing vampire fan. If I had read them after all the hype, I doubt I would have enjoyed them as much. ( )

This series is awesome! I think that Eclipse (book 3) is my favorite. ( )

I'd never given much thought to how I would die- though I'd had reason enough in the last few months- but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this.
