“Twilight” By Stephanie Meyer

Here is another review of twilight

As hard as it is to sit down between classes, homework and jobs to read a book, “Twilight” had my eyes glued to the pages for two days straight until I finished it.

If you have not been pulled into the “Twilight” and Edward Cullen obsession and still don’t know the gist of the story, here is a little bit of background to spark your interest.

First, let’s get some facts straight. Yes, it is a vampire love story. No, it is not the kind of vampires you are thinking of. There is no creeping out of coffins and no helpless damsel in distress in this story; unless you count Bella Swan’s endless clumsiness and the fact that she is the ultimate prey for James, the human-tracking vampire. Bella moves from Arizona to Forks, Wash., to live with her dad, and she is the talk of the town before she arrives. She easily makes friends with everyone including the odd, hard-to-get Edward.

Even though Edward warns Bella they shouldn’t be friends, there is nothing that can keep them apart. Despite Edward’s desire to kill Bella, his desire to keep her safe is stronger. He is willing to risk everything for her with his family of vampires and devote himself to keeping her safe by not draining her blood and killing her himself. How romantic.

Being a female reader, it was impossible for me to not fall in love with Edward as I flipped through the pages. It didn’t take long to realize what all the buzz was about. I wondered why I had not heard of the four-book series sooner. What makes this book great is it is a love story, but it’s not a sappy-pass-me-a-tissue love story. There is love, drama, violence and blood all equally executed to make up the perfect vampire love story. I give it five stars because it had me holding my breath and sighing with admiration all at the same time.
