*** ITA/ENG ***
Ho promesso a me stessa che avrei inserito un commento per tutti i libri classificati come illeggibili, per giustificare un giudizio tanto drastico, ma per Twilight ho aspettato a lungo perché tutto quello che c'è da dire è già stato detto, ridetto e sviscerato da altri e da anni ormai.

Pessimo esempio di fidanzato potenzialmente pericoloso (e al giorno d'oggi è una figura da condannare ancora di più) che si introduce nottetempo in camera tua e decide se puoi vedere i tuoi amici o se "sono pericolosi per te", a cui l'unica risposta sensata da dare sarebbe "Quella è la porta, passi lunghi e ben distesi".

Il fatto che la protagonista praticamente non esista e lui è un vampiro che brilla sono dettagli.
***************

When I put a book in my "Unreadable" list I try to add a comment on it, since it's such an harsh judgment, but with this book, what could I say that everyone else hasn't already analyzed again and again?

Nowadays, with the outbursts of femicides that we live with, I can just say that the male protagonist is an abusive guy that enters his girlfriend's room when she sleeps and wants to decide what she can do and what is "dangerous for her", and who should have been shown the door immediately.

Ah, yeah, the female protagonist is just non-existent and he is a sparkly vampire. ( )

I enjoy the audio reading of this book. I don't do audio books much but since this was a re-read I felt safe and I really liked it. ( )
  KimZoot | Jan 2, 2022 |
This isn't my usual genre, but I read it to get a feel for first person female POV. And wow, what a great example of a perfect co-dependent relationship. Stephenie Meyer did a great job of capturing the mind and thoughts of an all-consumed teenage girl. It's not surprising how popular this book became.

However, I found the Jacob Black character and storyline tacked on, although it was more interesting than Edward's background. It felt like the Jacob character was added late in production to give a reason for more books (and movies.) The constant swooning got tiresome quickly as well.

I don't think I'll be going further in this series, but I have to say, the teaser at the end of book one was well crafted. ( )

"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.
