I remember reading this book a few years ago and I really liked it. The story flowed and was easy to read which led me into the world of the book. The characters were interesting and I remember feeling the need to know what would happen. ( )

I read this ten years ago when I was in eighth grade and I loved it. I read the series as fast as I possibly could. Attempting to read it again ten years later, now that the hype has died down and my taste in literature has changed greatly, I cannot figure out what was so wonderful about this book. Isabella Swan moves to Forks to live with her dad for no apparent reason, she hates green for some reason and is obsessed with some guy who is so freaking creepy. The way he was acting towards her was scary but she became obsessed with him before there was ever a word spoken between them. How do you romanticize someone who acts scary and mean towards you? How is that attractive? Let me guess...he's pretty and that's all that matters to boring, plain old Isabella Swan. Also, she's a snob and looks down on the people from the little town and seems to find all of the people trying to be nice to her insufferable. Normal new kids at school are grateful for the few people who are nice. ( )

"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.
