Meanders for hundreds of pages before discovering a plot. Characters are flat, cartoonish, and illogical. Writing is pedestrian. This book has absolutely no redeeming qualities. ( )

What can I say? I love Twilight. I reread the first three books several times a year. It’s like a comfort food, an escape, a thrill. ( )

I read this book when I was in high school and loved it ever since. It was my first large novel I read as well. There will always be a special place in my heart for Twilight, even if I am not a teen anymore. Twilight does get a lot of negatives, especially for the movies, but the books give so much detail. I have not read Midnight Sun yet, but I am also looking forward to that. (Edward's POV in Twilight).

If you like vampires, some romance, and action here and there then give it a try :) The series is wonderful in general - at least to me. ( )

"Meyer's prose seldom rises above the serviceable, and the plotting is leaden" [....] "It's like reading a young teenage girl's blog"
added by GYKM | editWashington Post, Elizabeth Hand (May 26, 2010)
 
Astonishing, mainly for the ineptitude of her prose. Teen vampire schlock that has the nation’s youth in thrall.
added by GYKM | editDaily Telegraph, Brian MacArthur (Nov 13, 2009)
 
[L]et me say to you as a meat-eating, Entourage-watching, sports-loving (OK, I really don't love sports, or actually understand sports) — heterosexual man who can't sit through a single show on Lifetime television, let me loudly proclaim: I, Brad Meltzer, love the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.
 
I confess, I have joined the legions of the bitten and smitten.
 
The plot may sound rather comic and camp, but Meyer chooses to play it straight and serious. Vampires or not, what this novel is really about is a fatal attraction to someone or something dangerously different from yourself. The trajectory of the story is such that Bella's behavior and choices grow increasingly more disturbing, with irrevocable, self-destructive consequences.

Epigraph
But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. -- Genesis 2:17
Dedication
For my big sister, Emily,
without whose enthusiasm this story might still be unfinished.
First words
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.
Quotations
Breathe Bella.
You're exactly my brand of heroin.
It's twilight. It's the safest time of the day for us. The easiest part. But also the saddest, in a way. The end of another day, the return of the night.
