512 Words3 Pages
Twilight is an absorbing, rapid moving read written by Stephanie Meyer. It was her first book and an international best seller. It follows Isabella (Bella) swan, a seventeen year old girl as she moves to the small rainy town of forks to live with her dad Charlie. The first day of her new school she meets the Cullen’s, a mysterious inhumanely beautiful family, “they were faces you never expected to see except perhaps on the airbrushed pages of a fashion magazine. Or painted by an old master as the face of an angel.” Edward Cullen has chalky alabaster skin, golden enticing eyes and supernatural gifts. Bella knows he is anything but human but “It doesn’t matter to me.” The more time she spends with Edward, the more danger she is in, “I could…show more content… Very rarely will her perfect charade slip, and you will see her true personality. Her halo of blond hair encircles her pallid, icy face and her menacing eyes send a shiver up your spine. As the series progress you find out why Rosalie is so bitter towards Bella.
Once you start to read Twilight you will not be able to put it down. You will not be able to eat, talk or even sleep until you have finished it and, when you have, you will start reading it again! Although Twilight is about monsters, vampires and the supernatural, it is actually a magnetic love story. You will begin to think your Bella, and that Edward is in love with you. Then you will be devastated when you remember that he is, in fact, not real. The book is written with a graceful air, and the many intricate twists of the plot tie in as the story moves forward. With Stephenie Meyer considered a new ‘J.K Rowling’ it’s no wonder Twilight has been making top book lists for over a year and there has been a film spin off (the second book, New Moon is due to hit the theatres in 4 months). I think this unique, distinctive book is definitely going to become a cherished book for this era.
I would recommend this book to anyone with a passion for mystery, suspense and paranormal happenings. The plot is sharp, funny, poignant and compelling. Since first reading this book it has become a worldwide phenomenon, and has captured the imagination of every romantic.
