Twilight- by Stephenie Meyer  

Twilight


After my examinations got over yesterday, I decided to lay my hands on a good book, and one of my book loving friends suggested that Twilight by Stephenie Meyer would be a good choice. I too had heard a lot about the book, so I decided to give it a try.

Twilight written by Stephanie Meyer is series of books about Vampire love story.

The theme of the novel pricked my interest. It is a teenage love story but the twist in it is that there's a blood drinking dangerous vampire existing!

It is a story about a teenager called Isabella Swan who has moved to Forks, Washington with her father Charlie. She abhors the new city, truly unlike Phoenix, where she lived earlier. She has no interest in her new school, new friends, until.....she meets a guy called Edward. Edward has intrigued her since she first set her eyes on him. Then they turn out to be Lab partners in Biology.

Edward has an exquisite beauty, and the way Stephenie describes it in the book is awe inspiring and out of the ordinary. His eyes are the basic communication for Bella. She initially learns that he abhors him with trying to change his class timings, disappearing for a week or more and then giving her frustrated looks.

When deep down she is resenting and anguished, he turns back to normal, and out of the ordinary gets talking to her courteously. And then Edward changed before her eyes...

Bella was unfortunately entangled in an accident, where Edward rescues her heroically. She was going to be run down by a van, when Edward comes and saves her. The troubling part is that the van was coming at full speed and Edward was nowhere near. Bella was certain that it was some sort of magic, that he rescued her, but Edward denied everything being anything other than ordinary.

Bella persuades him to disclose his secret, his exquisite beauty and looks unlike all others, everything about him was intriguing. Then they get to talking, and Bella slowly discovers that both love each other, and with the love comes another shocking revelation-

Edward was a blood thirsty vampire!!

The rest of the story revolves around how Edward protects her, how she gets approved by his family and how Edward stops himself. The scent of Bella blood always aroused him, bu his love for her, gave him the strength to overcome it.

Their relationship is thrown into bedlam when another vampire group comes to Forks. James, a tracker vampire who is intrigued by the Cullens' relationship with a human, wants to hunt Bella for sport. The Cullens attempt to distract the tracker by splitting up Bella and Edward, and Bella is sent to hide in a hotel in Phoenix.

The rest of the plot revolves around how Bella is rescued or caught and finally, her desire to trun into a vampire herself.

It is one of the most extraordinary and mystical plot you can come across. The author's narration is fabulous too. So what are you waiting for? Just go and grab a copy of this sensational novel !

    Hi!

    I also loved Twilight! I have seen the movie, read all four books, bought the first one, and now, I'm waiting for the other movies.

    An exciting piece of news. The move is actually filmed in Forks, Washington, and I live in Washington. But not Forks. Too bad!

    i read twilight about a year and a half ago or something, before people were cultivated by this,
    i love the books, just like the 1000's and i am in the prosess of designing a novel based on a love story- as i am a true romantic at heart based on edward cullen but no vampires or anything out of the ordinary, however the pare share the trauma of living with mental illness- witch brings them closer together, i really like the theme of the story
