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.

Don't worry about what people think they don't do it often.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Oh and to get more info Stephanie Meyer posted her unfinished rough draft of Midnight sun. This book is Twilight in Edwards point of view.

The thing about philosophy is that it often runs dry when thought of so shallowly.

My dear,  reviw should be you pointing out what is good about a story, and WHY that is good about the story. You have simply told me, "It is good" and gave points. Back up those points; WHY is Meyer's writing so good? What style is it written in? I it a difficult style? Is the stylwe easy to read? Creative? Original? Tell me, what is good about the characters? Are they orignal, or are gthey clever stereotypes? Do they interact well, or is part of the stories better points its conflict? Why is the Cullen family name significant? You can't simply throw me information, back it up, sit down and explain it. We all have time.

This review is excellently written, I admit, but I was personally disgusted with the Twilight saga. The vampire/werewolf phenomenon has been overdone in so many ways throughout the years. I also found Bella extremely nauseating in the way she whined until she got what she want, and basically went into hibernation mode when her 100-year-old boyfriend left her in the 2nd book. There's no message in these novels except the following-- get married when you're 17.

I read these books and no offense to those twilight lovers, but it was awful. The themes were for middle schoolers, but I could've understood it in first grade. Yes, it was a good idea, but it wasn't original. A traditional love triangle, with a little paranormality added into it. I wrote an alternate ending to twilight in the same style Stephanie Meyer did, and I'm waiting for it to be posted on TI and I'm in seventh grade so if I can write as good as she can, thats a problem.

"Who would have thought that the idea for such an astonishing book could come from a dream the author had?" Mary Shelley (Frankenstein the Modern Prometheus), and 150 years earlier, as a matter of fact. It's not really a new idea.

I didn't have to read twilight to know that it was a bad book. It took so much content from Harry Potter.

But wait until you actually meet a real werewolf. You'll see how they truly are.

I couldn't agree with you more! This review is better than the book itself.

Your reveiw was well written, however I disagree with your point of veiw. Twilight was an awful series, and I don't see what the big deal about it was. But, the way you wrote your reveiw almost made me side with you....almost.

Love is louder than the pressure to be perfect.

Haha, I feel the same way. I read the first three books all because everyone else loved them and I felt I had to love them too. Nice review, though.
