Well, today there's this kickoff party at my local library for this new tweens reading program-and I'm trying to cover my whole entire surfboard (you have to read 15 minutes for every box on the paper surfboard) and I'm trying to read as much as I can. Now, the book I'm about to do is really really common-and it's third book is just about to come out in a movie next month. Okay, here's a clue-it's about vampires, love, and it's by the New York Times Bestseller Author.... (drumroll)....Stephenie Meyer!Yes, that's right-It's Twilight. I do have to say-some people hate this book, some people LOVE this book. I don't LOVE it or HATE it, I think it's okay. Maybe a little bit too sappy, but overall, probably not Bad. Okay, that's get to the review.
By Stephenie Meyer
The First Sentence
I'd never given much thought to how I would die-though I'd had reason enough in the last few months-even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this.
Summary (Copyright of http://www.goodreads.com/)
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 knife—between 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.
Okay, as I said before, maybe this book is a little bit too sappy. But what I like about it being so sappy, is that you can actually feel the emotion, and the tension, and everything that is going on between Edward and Bella. It's nice that Stephenie Meyer gives details that show how Bella feels, what Bella thinks of herself, as well as Edward, but some parts aren't very clear. I had to go back and reason out some parts because they don't exactly make sense. But I love how Stephenie weaved in action, and made the love flow along at the right pace. It's also awesome how she decided to make Bella find out the truth about Edward. This story DEFINITELY has bite. There are so many things that are wonderful about this book, but there are a few flaws too. But it was totally unessacary for Stephenie Meyer to have Bella describe some of his body, and ruin the story by using so much large vocabulary. It just breaks the flow of the story. And the story is basically only a love story. So....we should see both sides of the story first. So check out Stephenie Meyer's website to find out Edward's side of the story.
