About three things I was absolutely positive: First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him – and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be – that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
“I’D NEVER GIVEN MUCH THOUGHT TO HOW I WOULD DIE – I’d had reason enough in the last few months – but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this... Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of something else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something.”
When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable. Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret.
What Bella doesn’t realize is the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk. And, it might be too late to turn back...
Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight will have readers riveted right until the very last page is turned.

I liked the first book a lot, but I hated the movie. Overall, it was very well written and gripping. I stopped reading for a while before this book was released, but this kicked right back into reading again. It's clear that Bella is the damsel in ...Review

Definitely for young readers. My husband and I always take books on CD for road trips and we thought that we would try this since we really enjoyed the Harry Potter series on CD. Was told that they would be just as good. I wanted to shoot myself ...Review

It's a shame Twilight series has become so overly popular among young teenage population because this has lead to the fact that ever even admitting having read the book or discussing about it is something to classify being somewhat... well those of ...Review

It's easy to understand why Twilight Saga has created such a buzz and sold millions of copies. On the other hand, it baffles me how Meyer got away with such horrible writing. I'm not a native English speaker but still some of the parts were just ...Review

When I had first read this, I loved it. Now that I see people everywhere who seem to be brainwashed with this series, I grimace when I hear the name. Now, whenever someone mentions vampires the first thought is: "Oh my god, Edward!" Twilight does NOT define what a vampire is. Never has and never will.Review

If I was 12 I might have liked it. Now - mostly having fun with the poor writing and bland characters! The only thing she got right is the feeling a girl haves for her first crush - but I had that at 10 or something, not at 16 or 17 :D I do ...Review

Stephenie Meyer's Twilight is a nice little book, which is written for young adults. I didn't enjoy this book very much, but it was readable. It wasn't bad, but I've read much better horror and dark fantasy books. If you want to read better and ...Review
