Twilight: a biting romantic fantasy of complete greatness

Here is another review about twilight

The following review outlines the first book in the “Twilight” saga, Twilight, the basis for the movie of the same name currently out in theaters.

Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer, is the first book in a four-book series that dips into fantasy, romance and the hardships of teenage life. It has twists and turns that make each page a delight to read, and keeps the reader on their toes.

The book was easy to read and didn’t confuse the story line with unnecessary ideas that were unrelated to what was happening. It was extremely descriptive, which almost leave you feeling the rainy setting of Forks, Wash., where the main characters live.

The book revolves around Isabella “Bella” Swan and Edward Cullen, and their shaky romance. Told through the eyes of Bella, it keeps Edward and his family shrouded in secrecy as Bella tries to unravel the mysterious nature of the love of her life. Yet, when she finally does figure out Edward and the rest of his family are vampires, or “cold ones” her love for him and his family deepens as they welcome her into their life with open arms.

The character Bella was wonderfully written and completely believable, keeping the mood light with her sarcastic inner voice and clumsiness. She portrays a person many can relate too, with attributes like a lack of self-confidence and her inability to pass gym class.

The romantic angle between Edward and Bella is compelling, yet sometimes frustrating. There is a forlorn feeling that hovers over their relationship as Edward struggles to stay under control and not indulge in normal vampiric behavior, yet neither of the two are willing to give up their love for one another in fear of what would happen if they were torn apart.

The book twists into action as Edward’s love for Bella puts her in imminent danger from a group of vampires that have decided to make Bella their next target. That not only puts Bella in danger, but her entire family.

This book is slated toward young adults, but lovers of vampire stories and romance fanatics will also enjoy this book immensely. Buying this book on tape or checking it out from the Lifelong Learning Library on Sixth Street is also a great way to indulge in the Twilight mystery.
