I’ve been hearing so much of this author Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Series. I heard that it was so good that there is even a movie coming out about the book. Well I said to myself the other day that I should give this series a try and find out what all the talk is about. Well I am so glad that I bought the series because I’m hooked. The series is considered Young Adult but I think that it is also good for adults too because even though its about 17 year olds in high school everyone was that age at one point in their lives and could relate some how even though we probably weren’t surround with vampires and werewolfs and such. That would be exciting and scary at the same time if it had ever happened to me in high school because it would have made my high school experience so much more better. So it’s almost a two weeks before the world wide release of the movie version of this amazing and much acclaimed book Twilight. I can’t wait for it to be released already!
After I started reading the book I didn’t necessaryly get into it until I was almost half way into the story. I’ve never really read any Young Adult even though that is what I supposedly should be reading since I’m 19 years old but I’ve never been interested before. Since I was 11 years old adult fiction such and romance and mystery have always held my interest and I have many books that I’ve read over the years that have something that this book doesn’t have. I guess I’ve always been very mature for my age and I’ve always gotten that kind of response when I’ve talked to people outside of my family and friends. But that doesn’t mean that by the time I was finished with the book that I didn’t enjoy it very much because it definitely got me hooked for life. I thought that the intense and powerful love that Bella and Edward had in this book was way to fast for me and I didn’t really get how they could have fallen in love and would be willing to die for one another or die without one another. This is something that I have a hard time understanding even though I’ve read many romance novels but those have a different feeling than this kind of romance between Edward and Bella for some reason that I haven’t yet to understand.
I have mentioned probably more than once that I love paranormal novels very much because of all of the mythical and legendary creatures that are involved that every author has a different way of interpreting. Like Meyers has written her vampires as creatures that drink blood, have super human strength, super fast reflexes, super hearing and smell and can go out into the sunlight but they will glitter if they do which attracts unwanted attention. This was one interesting novel that I had a good time reading and can now understand all the Twilight addiction going on that kind of reminds me of how everyone was so in the Harry Potter series a couple of years ago. I’m definitely excited about the movie and I hope that it won’t be the last because I think that the other three books in the series, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, could be turned into some amazing movies just like I know the movie Twilight will be amazing but not as good as the novel. Here are the descriptions of the books from the back cover and cover flaps and pictures:
TWILIGHT $ 10.99 (Book 1)(498 Pages)
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him—and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
“I’D NEVER GIVEN MUCH THOUGHT TO HOW I WOULD DIE—I’d had reason enough in the last few months—but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this…. Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of something else, someone I loved. Noble even. That ought to count for something.”
When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable. Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret. What Bella doesn’t realize is the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk. And, it might be too late to turn back….
