Isabella Swan’s move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Bella’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Bella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knifeâbetween desire and danger. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.
This book is by far my favorite book of all time at this point. I’m really taken back!
From the look of other people’s recent reviews I feel like I read an entirely different book! I was so intrigued by this story that I simply couldn’t put it down until I finished it completely! Even now, I plan to run to the library for the next in the series in the morning.
I agree that it has a lot of love and romance so if you don’t like that sort of thing it might put you off I suppose. But it was so inciting to me! The descriptive wording put me right there in the character and I felt like I was the one falling in love. I also loved the sarcastic humor in the characters which made them more real to me, as that’s my sense of humor as well. I laughed, I cried, chills ran down my spine with some of the words that came from Edward’s mouth.
I just absolutely fell in love with Edward’s genuine love towards Bella. It’s so beautiful it took me to another place. The blend of his being intoxicated by Bella in a loving, sexual, and a dangerous way kept me on the edge of my seat. I did find it rather strange to find it in the teen section of my library, being that it has a lot of sexual innuendos, which I personally enjoyed, but someone younger really shouldn’t be exposed to I don’t think. I almost wish it would have just been considered a full on Adult novel so that perhaps we could have heard more of their “human instincts” being played out.
I may sound cheesy, but I’m really not an avid reader (I’m trying to start reading more) and I think everyone should give this book a try if you want to dive into another world of love, connection, passion, and fantasy.
