Twilight by Stephenie Meyer MAG

I was never in love with vampires until Twilight came out. I didn’t know it was possible, but Stephenie Meyer changed the stereotypical blood-sucking vampire into a beautiful god-like creature.

In Twilight, an average high school girl, Bella Swan, falls in love with one of the most beautiful boys at her new school, Edward, who happens to be a vampire. What does one call a stunning, mysterious vampire and his stunning, mysterious vampire family? I believe “The Cullens” would suffice.

The author’s style and characters will glue your hands to the book and your eyes to the page. In no time, the book is over. But don’t worry – there are three sequels: New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.

Twilight is well written from Bella’s point of view. It feels as though a movie is playing in your head. If you don’t feel that way, have no fear, the actual movie comes out November 21.

Twilight is such a magnificent book that it was a New York Times bestseller. Who would have thought that the idea for such an astonishing book could come from a dream the author had?

The theme is love conquers all, even the supernatural. Nothing stands in the way of love for Edward and Bella. Or does it?

Meyer’s style of writing will have you wanting to believe that there are gorgeous vampires roaming our world and just hopefully there will be Edwards for all of the girls who have fallen in love with this fictional yet breathtaking character. Since the characters’ love is forbidden, it only makes it better. ­After all, forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest.

Twililight is an amazing and well written book. I have never been so happy to be reading in my life. Stephenie Meyer has a way of making you not want to put the book down.

Well, I think the book as a whole was awesome! It was great. The only problem I had was that I could flip through and find tiny gramatical errors, which upset me a bit. I think that kind of takes away from the books. The plot and everything else was great though :)

I love all the books, can't wait till the film comes out, the ending of breaking sucks a lil bit but it's still great, anyone heard any news about midnight sun??

While I do appreciate my peers' opinions, I strongly dislike Twilight. The adjectives are overdone, the ending is pathetic (everybody lives happily ever after without consequence), and the antagonists are badly developed. They have little reason to pursue Bella, and are ultimately classified as the cliched Disney villains. Bella is much too dependent on Edward, and Edward is... sparkly. He is overly concerned with the safety of Bella, and while that may be endearing, it is also annoying. As Meyers does not think of Bella as a damsel in distress, I do not think she should have Bella act like one, and have everybody treat her like one.

OMG!!! I LOVE THIS BOOK! It is absolutely the most fabulous book ever. To tell you the truth, I did not want to read it! My friends forced me, and I absolutely fell in love. You know a book is good if it changes your whole perspective! Oh, and someone said that teens don't read any other books or something like that. Hon, the only reason my friends made me read this is because I had read almost all the YA books in my local bookstore!!!

I read the first two books and it usually takes me forever to read a entire book, but I finished Twilight in

about 4/5 days and it was the same with New Moon. I couldn'tv put the books down they are very captivating.

this was an awsome aticle and I have to agree that the same thing happened to me I never read that many books about vampires but after I read Twilight I just couldn't stop reading any books about vampires or any mithical cretures so to speak. I love this book and I can't wait till the movie comes out.

i'll have to admit that the book is not good at all....infact i don't actually get the reason behind it at all! vampires are supposed to be scary and adventorus..while this vampire spends his whole life fawning over a girl which i think is pretty stupid..i did read the first two books, they are good but not as much as people say!..well, the point is that even if the book isnt good your article is definitely interest-capturing and the way of writing is very appealing too!

The whole Twilight series really makes me very angry. Most middle and high school students are not interested in reading any of the wonderful books that are out there until something comes along and teens read just to say they have. Not only that, but I think vampire stories are extremely overrated.
