Twilight (stylized as twilight) () is a young adult vampire-romance novel by author Stephenie Meyer. It is the first book in the Twilight series, and introduces. Twilight Chapter 2. OPEN BOOK. The next day was better and worse. It was better because it wasn't raining yet, though the clouds were dense and opaque.

This book suggests that a real man makes you constantly stumble over your words, bite your lip to refrain from exclaiming adulations, and lose yourself in the sweet smell of his breath. Are fiercely devoted. That a girl of no spectacular beauty, who lacks any trace of conversation skills -- whose only virtue is that she smells really yummy -- can inspire an immortal creature of godlike power and grace to alter his entire existence to serve and protect her, watching over her by night more on that in 4.

This is a woman's ultimate fantasy -- to have the perfect man, perfectly devoted, for no good reason at all. Want them so bad that they won't take them. This, alas, is the most transparent aspect of this book's appeal.

It speaks volumes about the differences between men and women to have so many women toss their bodice-ripping romances aside in order to read how a feral man with otherworldly physical desires can contain his passion and lust out of his pure and perfect love for his beloved.

It says that women really do wish they could have it both ways, to be an object of lust and devotion at once, to fulfill a man's desire without actually slaking his thirst for her. To have a man watch you sleep and not want to have even a little peek under the covers -- now that's hot fantasy for today's woman who is otherwise told on a regular basis that to be her best self she has to enage in casual and risky sexual behavior.

To see just what an indulgent fantasy this book is, just imagine the male-centric version of Twilight, in which a troubled teen boy moves to a small town to find the hottest girl in town is a vampiress. Such a book would be about pages long all the unnecessary internal dialogue would be removed. No one would talk except to comment on the awesome size of, um, one's videogame library. The vampiress would be simple: She wouldn't hold herself back from trying to bite her intended, but would get so distracted with his bedroom technique that she would never get around to it.

We would laugh at such a book in fact, we know it would never be a book since men don't read; it would be a movie, and it would be a smash summer hit called American Vam-Pie-er, I'll start the screenplay right away. Somehow, when this story is told in a similarly indulgent female-centric vein, we don't reject it, but sympathize with it. I believe this is because women get to indulge in their fantasies so rarely outside of Jane Austen novels while men are surrounded with theirs.

So far I have yet see spam email inviting one to "read hot things devoted husbands would say to their wives" or "see pictures of hunks promising not to get nasty out of respect for their women" or "buy this purple pill so you can stay up late and share your feelings -- seven times in one night!.

Jun 07, Nicola rated it did not like it Recommends it for: I really enjoy lively details. There's nothing better than knowing an author has really thought about her characters and situations, and come up with some surprising and delightful detail that makes the whole reading experience fuller. Lively details, you understand -- pointless details are a nightmare to read. I don't need to know that Bella ate a granola bar for breakfast. Notice that I remembered the granola bar. I think this is partly because I was fervently hoping it would I really enjoy lively details.

I think this is partly because I was fervently hoping it would have significance. Like, she would spectacularly choke on her oatmeal the next day and think, "AH, I should have had a granola bar like yesterday! There's a little thing called summary narrative. It's beautiful; it facilitates plot progression without having to follow your narrator through fucking-hours of a day I've seen this novel accused of Mary Sue-ism and um, yeah , any character named Isabella Swan seems destined to be a Mary Sue.

But honestly, I wouldn't begrudge a semi-autobiographical story if it actually had any of the realism of autobiography. That's not what being seventeen is like! Twilight reads like Bella has all the emotional maturity of a year-old and that's just not remotely believable.

Meyer is not a bad writer. She has the ability to string words together. Unfortunately, she lacks any kind of flair. There was no original description; no truly evocative language. Twilight reads like Meyer has read a lot of mediocre novels and regurgitated the same kind of language onto the page. There is just nothing exciting to the language. The dialogue is awful: There's no difference in speech patterns to the characters; no awareness of personal tics. The characterization is wafer-thin see above, re: Mary Sue.

The plotting is terrible: This is such a profoundly antifeminist novel. And it's funny, because I think Meyer has no idea that it's antifeminist. I mean, she has a female heroine!

A heroine who reads Austen and writes essays about misogyny in Shakespeare! Surely she's kicking butt for all womankind. She cooks, she cleans, she looks after the man in her life!

She needs male characters to protect her from the big, bad, scary world!

She falls headfirst into a disturbingly dysfunctional relationship with a man 90 years her senior without the slightest amount of worry! What's that all about? I don't get the attraction. He has her in his thrall. She is, let me quote, "unconditionally and irrevocably" in love with him -- and after, like, a week.

I just think it's a bit sick, really. You know what I find romantic? Human warmth. Not sweeping, dramatic statements of everlasting and overarching love. Little, sweet moments of connection that ring true. That's something Twilight 's apparently epic love story is sorely lacking in.

Did I say Bella has the emotional maturity of a year-old? Well, except when it comes to Edward. There she has the emotional maturity of a dumb dog. Apr 29, Clare Richardson rated it did not like it Shelves: I hate this book. I will probably end up reading the rest of them, because if I don't, people that love this thing will think they can convert me if I just keep reading. ETA Jan. Never even remotely bothered to finish the series. In short: The dialogue is stilted and absolutely wretched.

The characterization is bad-- loose, jumpy, and the progression is occasionally senseless. The main characters themselves are not compelling: I can't express my disgust for the relationship between Edward and Bella. It's not romance, it's not passion, it's not love. It's selfish idiocy at best. Bella as a character is insufferable: It's hormones. It's a bad, bad example for the teenage girls who read it. Bella's whole life is tied up in her boyfriend. She has no goals, passions, ambitions, or dreams besides wanting to be with Edward, who could kill her.

Edward's element of danger is occasionally compelling, but it's totally overshadowed by the fact that Bella is completely oblivious to it. She doesn't fear him at all, and that doesn't come off like love: What can I say about Edward. There is nothing lovable about him except that he is apparently the most beautiful thing in existence. He's selfish: He's a creepy stalker: He's volatile: He's immature: He's controlling: Granted, she's dumb enough to get herself killed if he does.

He's insulting: Which he's right to, but I digress. It's still insulting. I understand that Bella's smell and that Bella herself are irresistible to him. But if he wanted the best for her, he'd stay away from her, period, the end. The story is stupid, the love story is bad, and if that's what Stephenie Meyer is preaching to teenage girls, I think it's pretty questionable.

It's not just "a fun read". There are girls out there who want to be Bella and who want to find an Edward. I think I might enjoy the story a lot more if Bella's idiot head was not the one I had to spend time in while reading it. If I had to read one more description of how beautiful Edward is, I was going to choke a kitten. If it had focused more on the vampire family I would have been a lot more willing to forgive its faults.

I thought Carlisle's and Alice's stories were really compelling, and Edward was finally accessible to me when he talked about Carlisle turning him into a vampire and how his family came to be formed, his life before Bella, etc. Some aspects of the vampirism were truly awesome: I found the idea that vampires can never sleep completely terrifying.

That they never, ever get a break and never, ever get to rest Entirely overshadowed by their flowery breath and the fact that they sparkle. Mothereffing ridiculous. This is hardly the tip of the iceberg, but I'm trying to spare you at least a little. Dec 02, brian rated it it was ok. DaffodilHill That was so funny Apr 27, Emina Balerina trying to suppress laughter in my cubicle at work! May 27, Nov 21, Chris Van Dyke rated it liked it. I actually had to give this book three separate reviews by three sides of my personality.

My three-star rating is the median of the three: Bella is smart, funny, well-read, pretty and yet misunderstood by most of her peers just like me. Then she meets a cool, hot guy who turns out to be a good vampire, and he can do really cool things, like run fast and stop cars with his hands, but he's still sweet and wonderful. It's ultimate wish-fulfillm I actually had to give this book three separate reviews by three sides of my personality.

It's ultimate wish-fulfillment fantasy -- what's not to like? Meyers can tell a pretty good story, when she lets herself actually tell it -- the book starts out well, and would have been a bit more interesting if I hadn't known he was a vampire all along. Then it slows down during the long "getting to know you" dialogue exchanges between Edward and Bella -- there's no plot, just back-story and exposition disguised as conversations, and far too many "I can't be with you, I don't want to hurt you!

When the evil vamps show up, however, the story kicks back in and the end is quite exciting. When Meyers isn't dwelling on how perfectly angelic Edward is again! Since there are A LOT of pages to turn, I wish she would have infused that urgency into the story more often. While abandoning most of the conventional cliches of vampire-lore stakes, sunlight, garlic, coffins she keeps all the modern-vamp-romance cliches alabaster skin, good hair, expensive taste in clothes, tragically distant , and adds a few of her own unfortunate twists vampires avoid the sun because it makes them sparkle, the good-vamp clan play some extreme version of baseball in a scene that was far too Quidich-y for my taste.

Too many cliches or trying to hard to be original -- somehow both criticisms are accurate. Review 3, by My Inner Feminist 1 Star: Meyers describes Bella as being strong, brave, and independent, but then shows her as a spineless, cowering victim who needs to be saved by her violently jealous and over-protective boyfriend.

She constantly goes on and on about how Edward is perfect at everything and how he's so gorgeous and she is so unworthy of him, how he's so strong and he protects her. In fact, she never gives any reason for liking him other than how hot he is, but that's fair because Edward never gives a reason for liking her other than she smells good.

He is frustrated that Bella is the only person whose thoughts he can't read, so he eavesdrops on her friends minds to find out what they talk about, he follows her whenever she leaves her house, and he secretly camps outside her room when she sleeps - that doesn't sound sweet, it sounds creepy.

Sep 15, Jared Vincent Lacaran rated it did not like it Shelves: Words need not be said. Jan 15, Joe rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Save your time: First pages: I'm dangerous! I wish I was kidding Last pages: I'm being chased! I'm scared! Oh my. This book, to me, is like chocolate: By "beneficial qualities", I mean that it's reading, and since when is reading bad? Let me say quite clearly that I'm a sucker for romance, especially the intense, passionate, tragic kind.

Sound corny? Yeah, I know, and the only reason Meyer gets away with it as well as she does is because Twilight doesn't try to be anything it's not, and it has such conviction. Only Meyer could get away with giving her narrator the name Isabella Swan. She says in her little bio at the back that she wanted to write believable characters: True, a lot of people haven't been able to suspend their disbelief with this book, but that doesn't affect my reading experience: Seventeen year old Bella's parents are divorced.

She lives with her mum in Phoenix, Arizona, and spends time with her dad Charlie in Forks, Washington State, where it rains almost constantly. She hates Forks, but when her mum remarries a baseball player, Phil, and starts travelling with him, Bella decides to move to Forks. On her first day at school she notices the isolated group of five beautiful, graceful siblings. Rosalie, Alice, Emmet, Edward and Jasper.

One in particular catches her eye: Edward Cullen, with his rust-brown hair and topaz eyes. She is more than a little surprised and shocked when he seems to have developed an acute, profound hatred of her. Her fascination deepens, especially when, after a brief disappearance, he saves her life. She soon figures out what Edward is, and the knowledge doesn't frighten her.

The shaky friendship between them develops into something much stronger, and Edward reveals his overpowering reaction to her smell that nearly made him kill her on the spot - hence the look on his face that so shocked her, and the restraint he put on himself during an hour of Biology. Let's not forget he's incredibly handsome: My fascination grew alongside hers, until I too fell in love with Edward - in a totally girly, daydreamy way.

Yes, I admit it. I don't know if that makes this a girly kind of book - these days those boundaries don't seem to matter so much, and the vampire family is pretty darn cool, what with Edward's extra ability to read minds, Alice's premonitions, Jasper's ability to affect people's emotions, their speed, their invincibility Bella is at one point compared to Lois Lane, because Edward and his kin really are like Superman.

One of the things I love about YA books: Granted there is some repetition in Twilight , but to me it's necessary repetition. There's nothing superfluous in Twilight , nothing that shouldn't be there, and the flow, the pacing, is great.

It's a fat book, but I read it in two days. I read it with breakfast, on my walk to the subway, on the subway, up the escalator, through the ticket gates, to work, in my lunch break I couldn't get enough of it, and it left me with that same craving for more that Harry Potter did I remember scrounging around for loose change as soon as I finished one of them and dashing off into the city to get my next fix.

It helped that four were already out when I started. There's plenty of negative stuff you could say about this book - the writing, the characters, the obsession - but again, I couldn't care less: Another thing I loved was all the vampire myths Meyer scrapped. These vampires aren't burnt to ash by sunlight: They are not hurt by crucifixes or stakes through the heart. They drive fast cars really really fast. And they can fall in love. Seriously though, this was one of most fun, most enjoyable, most romantic books I've read in a long time, and I'm so happy there are two more out with a fourth on the way.

They are, somewhat predictably, making Twilight into a movie - still in the early development stage - but it's rather fun to go to the author's website and see her own preferences for actors to play Edward etc.

Can't say I'm familiar with most of them, but her top choice now sadly too old , is indeed a perfect match. Who knows who they'll really cast, but as with the book, the characters have to be right or the whole story will be just silly and sappy. Yes I've been corrupted. Or rather, I've always loved romance stories but had trouble admitting it. Now, I just don't care: Jun 19, Trin rated it did not like it Shelves: Let me give you an idea of how much my opinion of this book changed at different stages of reading.

When I was about a third of the way through, I was so into it that I immediately put my name on the library reservations list for the sequel, and wishlisted every edition on BookMooch.

Now, having finished, I doubt I'll bother to read any further in the series. The opening is really quite interesting: Bella moves from sunny Arizona to rainy, gloomy Washington State to live with her father her som Let me give you an idea of how much my opinion of this book changed at different stages of reading. Bella moves from sunny Arizona to rainy, gloomy Washington State to live with her father her somewhat loopy mom wants to follow her new husband while he's on the road as a minor league ballplayer.

To her surprise, she gains almost instant popularity at her new high school—with the exception of the beautiful Edward Cullen and his siblings, who either ignore her, or in the case of Edward himself, seem to be repulsed by her. Why does he save her life? What are a bunch of vampires doing impersonating students at a small town high school, anyway?

Unfortunately, the answers to all these questions seem to be either nonexistent or extremely lame. Edward reacts weirdly to Bella because she 1 smells unusually good, and 2 is the only person he's ever met whose mind he cannot read.

But, you know, the actual mysterious stuff is apparently not important—instead it's more important that we realize that the Cullens are good vampires, who only eat animals, and who do nice, all-American things like play baseball in the woods. Also, all the weaknesses you've heard vampires have are just myths. Garlic, stakes, even sunlight—no problemo. Yet Edward would never even consider turning Bella, because that would make her an Evil Thing.

Instead, what Edward and Bella apparently CAN do is be very emo and teenage about their twu luv despite Edward actually being over years old , and be threatened by a villain that shows up in the novel's last third just to give it some semblance of an actual plot. Then, once all is well, they go to the prom! And still, none of this answers my number one question: Especially when you're not even trying to bang high school girls.

Angel at his most pathetic emo mopiness had more spine. Feb 13, Miranda Reads rated it it was amazing Shelves: So, my review might be a bit biased This was my first and only major episode of fangirling. I owned a tshirt "vegetarian vampire" - so edgy. I saw the first movie an embarrassingly high number of times in theater.

I judged people based off of Team Edward or Team Jacob for the record: Edward in the books, Jacob in the movies. Even now, more than 10 years later, I still absolutely adore this first book - there's too many good feelings.

I tried so, so hard to look at this book with my sop So, my review might be a bit biased I tried so, so hard to look at this book with my sophisticated grown-up eyes, to see past all the trite plotholes and develop a good, sound hatred of Twilight.

I just can't - I live for this series. So, just keep in mind where I am coming from when I decided to reread this one. My overwhelming realization? Bella should probably be hospitalized There is no way she doesn't have some inner-ear or traumatic brain injury. There is no physically relevant way a seventeen year old could be that unbalanced. It defies all logic. It's like every time I turned the page, there'd she go.

You really should stay away from me. The other overwhelming realization? Rosalie was the voice of reason. I remember absolutely hating her because she was the only one who stood between Edward and Bella.

How dare she not love that they're in love? Team Rosalie-the-voice-of-reason all the way. Despite everything, the cheesy quotes, the terribly unrealistic portrayal of love and the big sparkling plot-holes, I can't help it.

I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him. Me, falling in love with this book all over again. Still got that 10 yr old vegetarian vampire shirt in the back of my closet. That's my original Twilight copy, literally worn away from my multiple rereads Audiobook Comments Well-read by Ilyana Kadushin, though I wish the guy voices were a bit more distinct when the girl-reader said them.

They were all just slightly deeper version of girl-voices. Mar 31, Blythe rated it it was ok Shelves: That is all. View all 21 comments.

Well, sure, it's bad, but it's not 1-star bad. The sequels were atrocious, sure, but the first book wasn't the worst crap I've ever read.

What I suspect most of us hate about Twilight isn't the book itself, but the legion of rabid, terrifying fangirls. The ones debating on online forums about Team Edward vs. Team Jacob. The ones who will argue that Twilight is the best book ever written. The ones who camp out at Twilight movie premieres 1 month before Call me crazy, but Twilight wasn't that bad.

The Twilight Saga (Twilight, #) by Stephenie Meyer

I hate the fans. I desperately hate the rabid fangirlzzz. There aren't enough words to describe my loathing of Twitards. The book itself wasn't that bad. I've read far worse before. I will read far worse in the future. I've read books that I wish were paper so that I could fling it across the room during a fit of rage. I've read books with alpha-douches who have made me use curse words that have made a Navy sailor blush.

I've read books where the love interest is as abusive asshole who would think nothing of commenting on his love interest's tits or weight. And these books aren't even new adult. I've read books where the main character is a rampant fellow-girl hater and slut shamer. I've read books where the main character is so fucking dumb it makes my teeth hurts.

I've read books where the main character seems to be doing her damnedest to remove herself from the human gene pool and it is only by the grace of deus ex fucking machina that she is saved. I've read books whose plot makes Game of Thrones seem simple, and not in the "Wow, that's really complex" kind of way as it is "What the actual fuck were you smoking when you wrote this?

So in that sense, Twilight is really not that bad. Sure, Bella is dumb and a Mary Sue, but the worst you can say about her is that she is completely colorless and bland, with the personality of a block of tofu.

The worst you can say about Edward is that he's a weirdo stalker who likes really young girls despite his age, but man, watching a girl while she sleeps? He's been out-creeped by far worse men. So really. I mean it. You may hate Twilight with my blessing, but please don't believe it's the worst example of YA literature out there.

Is isn't, by any stretch of the imagination. Jul 16, Jessica Edwards rated it it was amazing Shelves: Where do I start with this? I don't know about you, but I was hyped when this book came out. Anything involving Vampires or Wolves I want to read it. I read this again a couple of weeks ago and because I'm going to start reviewing more books even though I'm not very good at it I wanted to review this particular book more than any other book.

Twilight, I love you. I love the series. And the films.

I could watch the films over and over again, even in the same day. A gripping story line with a love triangle between two completely different beings.

Some days I wish I was Bella, because then I'd change who she bloody chooses! Jacob, Jacob, Jacob, oh how I adore you Bella can keep Edward for all I care, I want the wolf. Just once I'd like to see the second male lead get the girl. View all 25 comments. Jun 07, Mary rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Twilight is lame and stupid. I think everyone knows that the characters are essentially the ones who make up the book. Bella, our first person, is about as interesting as a rock.

Isabella is nothing more than a Mary Sue. Bella Swan? To Kill a Mockingbird. Never Never. Tarryn Fisher. Dark Matter. Prince of Wolves. Sarah Rees Brennan. Diana Gabaldon. Finding Audrey. On the other hand, the story itself could easily be read as a metaphor for conservative Mormon theology. Not only that, the idea of teenage girls accepting Bella and Edward as an acceptable relationship model is horrific. No, they do not practice unsafe sex. Instead, each person in this couple is so inflexibly "in love" with the other that they literally cannot exist without the other.

Threats of self-immolation, self-hurt, and suicide abound in each other's absence. Edward is an overprotective, controlling, even physically harmful because of his supernatural strength partner at times always remorseful, but never quite able to stop himself ; Bella just keeps coming back for more grimace.

Meyers leaves blank pages for entire seasons in New Moon--periods of Edward's absence when Bella's depression is so rampant that her thoughts and actions are not worth recording. Bella is only able to be a person again with the help of another semi-paramour, Jacob.

That's right, she needs the help of a good man to get her sad face off the ground. Without blowing the ending for future readings, it's safe to say that all will be right in the world by the end of the series. Marriages will occur, babies will be born, and the happy domestic dream of a Mormon-inspired life will ensue--one in which the female is never able to achieve happiness or true self-realization on her own, but requires the assistance of a man in her life in order to fulfill it completely.

Sure, the series tantalizes the Daddy issues of millions of women, but here is the question with which I was faced: You can probably guess my answer. Two stars, Ms. You get the second for holding my interest, but you should be mildly ashamed. View all 5 comments. Mar 28, Hayley rated it it was amazing. Who doesn't love these books? They are embarresingly addictive and so fun to read. I fell in love with the characters, though there wasn't enough Edward in the 2nd book Apr 23, Jessica rated it it was amazing.

Twilight book 1 re-read. Still love it after ten years. Haters gonna hate. No se que nota ponerle a los 4 libros juntos, porque para mi el primer libro es aguantable, el segundo libro es asqueroso, el tercer libro esta muy bien y el cuarto libro esta muy bien hasta el final, el cual es una mierda. May 08, Spuurrrnggeeee rated it did not like it. This shouldn't even be called a book. It is horrid. It should be illegal. I'm not just saying this because it's a bad book which it is but because it's such a bad influence.

The message of this book given out by one putrid Bella Swan is that a girl is useless without her boyfriend.

Honestly it's all Bella's fault, I mean when Edward leaves her she crawls up on the ground and is depressed for, like, half a year. She only gets better when she gets another man in her life, Jacob Black canine shap This shouldn't even be called a book.

She only gets better when she gets another man in her life, Jacob Black canine shapeshifter- Sirius Black's last name- anyone else seeing the connection? Not just that but she has so little self-worth she throws herself off cliffs just to see a vision of her ex. Get some persepctive! That aside Bella has no will of her own and, when she moves in with her dad who watches sport and has a gun what is practically the first thing she does?

Goes to the kitchen and starts cooking, I mean come on! Sexist much? And have you noticed that almost all the women in Twilight don't go out and get a job, they just live off their men? Bella is the single most annoying female character I have ever come across in any book I've ever read with the possible expection of the hypocrite Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy and I've read a lot of books. And as for Edward, well let me get started It's not sweet, it's messed up, call the freaking cops.

And later when he's a nice guy etc. No to mention that if he's a hundred years old he could have actually done something with that time instead of going to high school a thousand times and seducing someone over eighty years his junior. I mean if she's going to risk her life dating someone who has the potential to see her as lunch then it doesn't say much about her sense of what's good for her. Also how many freaking times does the authour need to tell us that he's "gorgeous" I got the picture after the first hundered times goddammit.

Another thing, why is everyone in that book in love with Bella? Seriously, what is there to love, is her chronic clumsiness supposed to be endearing, or he complete uselessness meant to be a good thing? What happened to strong female characters? This book sends a really bad message to people, that it's alright for a girl to just cling onto her man. That aside the story line is pretty much a rip off of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and the supporting cast is so weak it isn't even funny.

The only decent characters Alice, Jasper, Emmet, Seth etc are barely metioned and almost all the human characters at Bella's school are either one dimensional or plain unpleasant with no redeeming qualities. I know it ties in with how Edward can't read her thoughts but personally i think that thats because there were no thoughts worth reading in the first place. She certainly doesn't have an individual thought within her head anyway.

As for the sparkling in the sunlight Sparkling, hoenstly, just when you thought this book couldn't get any worse, Edward has to go ahead and sparkle. Not only does it hark back to something from a Barbie princess movie but it's like a very poetic irony to have a lack-lustre character start sparkling. That aside it's just sad when it comes to Edward because on anyone else it could have been mildly fabulous, but no, it just make Edward a complete sissy.

As for it's too cloudy in Forks for him to sparkle properly, bitch please, if he sparkles in sunlight and not artificial light then it's the UV doing it, and UV doesn't care about how cloudy it is.

He will sparkle in Forks just as much as anywhere else, if this book wasn't already irrealistic enough then this made me want to shoot someone. In conclusion,this book was truly unholy and this is coming from a La Vey Satanist so yeah Rant concluded.

I already had the books on my TBR pile, but I kept finding excuses not to read them. And I was right to dawdle. Instead of writing the review for each and every book in this "saga", I decided to put all my eggs in one basket, so to speak, and write only one review, listing only the three major gripes.

The f Thanks to a bet involving things I would rather not disclose I had to read the entire Twilight Saga all four books. The first person POV was tiresome, though I have to give kudos to the writer for the knack of portraying the convoluted, self-absorbed, manic-depressive, somewhat hysterical thoughts of a teenager.

The writing and style made the books hard to read. Too much crap, too many weeds in the field, if you catch my drift. Were the editors out for coffee? And thanks to all the crap clogging the story and boosting the page count the whole thing was just too damn long. With a good edit you could cram everything up in one albeit a little thick book.

And third, and the biggest problem for me in these books, the YA take on the vampire lore. The creatures of the night are tall, dark, handsome, buff, sexy as hell, exuding eroticism through every pore, not a gangly, frail-looking teenager that glows in the sun and drinks animal blood. Vampires are supposed to drink human blood, burst into flame in sunlight and have lots and lots of sex possibly while drinking blood from their partner and chosen one.

I think it says a lot that I liked the crappy movies better than the books on with they were based. I do learn from my mistakes sometimes. Jan 14, Christine Wheeler rated it it was ok Shelves: I used to think these books sounded stupid and refused to read them, making fun of anyone who did. However, when my nineteen-year-old self got dumped a few years ago and I was looking for a distraction, I decided "you can't knock it till you try it, right?

This series is about as entertaining as reading a twelve-year-old girl's d I used to think these books sounded stupid and refused to read them, making fun of anyone who did.

This series is about as entertaining as reading a twelve-year-old girl's diary. It's very absorbing and absolutely hilarious at times, but it doesn't do much for me on an intellectual level.

The main character, Bella, does nothing but whine and complain about everyone being in love with her. She's a useless human being and she doesn't have much of a personality and certainly doesn't have a mind of her own.

When her boyfriend dumps her in the second book, she turns into an even more useless lump by hiding from everyone for months on end. This sends the message to teenage girls that there is nothing more valuable in life than having a boyfriend. Meanwhile, Edward, the supposed love of her seventeen-year-old life like anyone knows who they're meant to be with at seventeen , is a creepy, possessive stalker who does nothing but obsess over Bella day and night. I'm sorry to all the fangirls out there, but the way Edward "loves" Bella is not a true representation of love in my book.

The Twilight Saga

That whole watching her while she sleeps thing - awkward?! In the meantime, Bella emotionally tortures her other suitor, Jacob, by playing games with his affections. In my opinion, he's a much more likable character than either Edward or Bella, until of course in the fourth book when he imprints on Edward and Bella's newborn child pedophilia anyone?

Although I will admit that these were absorbing and entertaining, they should not qualify as literature because of the simplicity of the writing. A seven-year-old could read these were it not for content above their level.

There is only a level up to which a bad story can annoy the reader. If it gets any worse, it becomes funny. I go pretty fast from, "What the heck am I reading. It's making me so irritated, I want to tear this book. Unfortunately, this manga is available only in Japanese now. Here are the titles of the 13 volumes in English, thanks to Google Translate: People who loved the vampire 2.

Blood sorrow of taste 3. Darkness of the vampire clan 4. Fang whisper sweet 5. Month of wolf 6. Grief of fallen angels 7. Red stamped 8. The cold kiss me 9. Twilight demon of time Vampire bride The Guardian of the Dawn Immortal child Being held forever Alright, I know the titles would sound better in Japanese.

Someone, please please release an English version soon. Apr 27, Stephanie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Stephanie by: I searched for it on my own. The book that I'm writing this about is New moon , the second book in the series. When I read this book, I literally cried for 30 minutes. It's really sad, but you still love it, you love it so much that you get depressed with Bella the main character.

But you also get happy and hopeful when she thinks of hanging out with Jacob Black. It's about love, but it's also action packed when Bella finds out Edward thinks she killed herself and they have to fly to Italy.

It was a close call. This book The book that I'm writing this about is New moon , the second book in the series. This book is inspiring and I just can't get enough of it! I can't wait until Breaking Dawn is released! May 22, Andie rated it it was amazing. OK all these books are good, but extremely frustrating at the same time He's like years old and has never had sex?!!

Drives me crazy!!

Just do it already!!! BY the end of the third one I'm so angry I can't see straight. The author does a really great job getting you to keep turning the pages, and just when you think there's gonna be awesome sex Oh the morals you can learn from this book.

Maybe Bella wouldn't be so sad all the time if her cold, bloodsucking, boyfriend wasn't such OK all these books are good, but extremely frustrating at the same time Maybe Bella wouldn't be so sad all the time if her cold, bloodsucking, boyfriend wasn't such a saint.

Sure, he's killed a lot of people but he's not about to have "relations" before marriage. Never in all 3 books is the word sex even used!! It's so frustratingly awesome! Who wouldn't want to get it on with a hot werewolf or very strong, freakishly handsome vampire? Alice is soooo my favorite. Cant wait till the movie!!!! View 2 comments. Oct 06, Marcia rated it it was amazing. I am going to clump all the books into one review even though I preferred the first and 3rd books to the other 2. I enjoyed Breaking Dawn until I read the reviews about how dissapointed everyone was with the book I heard in Utah there is a group of ladies who have thought less of their husbands after reading about Edward and how perfect he is He's a vampire.

I thought Breaking Dawn ended just how I wanted it too. Yes, there wer I am going to clump all the books into one review even though I preferred the first and 3rd books to the other 2. Yes, there were a few flaws and a few too many perfect scenarios with Bella and Edward and a lot of build-up for nothing, but overall I enjoyed it and still read it pretty fast.

I already told my 11 yr old daughter that she couldn't read it because of a little more mature content with Bella and Edward getting married.

But, I say good job Stephanie Meyer! We're all just jealous that we couldn't do the same thing with our first novels. Dec 12, Gayatri, eine Leseratte rated it liked it Shelves: The story is not worth much, though I must admit 5 years ago I was completely crazy about these books.

Hence, 3 stars! Jul 25, Anu Priya rated it it was amazing Shelves: Amazing book collection. I read these 4 books over the span of a year and a half, which goes to show that I wasn't very keen on them. I read the first one in spring because it was a bestseller and I was curious what the book was like and why it was so popular. The first pages or so were pretty dull. I felt like there was very little action and too many dialogues.

Then finally, the bad guys appeared and the pace quickened up and I actually found the book interesting from that part on. The first book is not that I read these 4 books over the span of a year and a half, which goes to show that I wasn't very keen on them.

The first book is not that bad, actually, the problem lies in the next ones where Bella's and Edward mutual obsession reaches ridiculous and completely unbelievable levels. What is it with Stephenie Meyer and her unhealthy fascination with perfection? Why do werewolves have to find their soulmate and imprint on them, no matter the age or the personality of that person?

Why aren't the books more focused on things other than "the match made in heaven" or later on the love triangle? Why does the writer constantly underline that almost all characters are soulmates: Seriously, Meyer's attempt to make a modern remake of "Romeo and Juliet" is horrifying! But lets get back to the books. I happened to read "Eclipse" before "New Moon" in the e-book format and I was terribly bored!

It should have been twice shorter. The love triangle wasn't exciting and didn't create real tension because of Bella's eternal commitment to Edward.

It was more like constant repetition of: Bella, I love you. Leave your bloodsucker and we'll live happily ever after! No, Jacob, you're just a friend to me! I could never leave Edward because he's oh so perfect and we're meant to spend eternity together. Bella, I love you more than Romeo loved Juliet, so don't you dare go near her, Jacob!
