    2.5 Bella s not like other girls she reads classics.But in all seriousness this book is bad.Yet I m struggling to give this book a rating There s no doubt in my mind that if this was the first time that I d read this book it would be a one star rating.However, it s not the first time I ve read this book Me and this book, we have history.I remember the first time I read this book as clear as day, with my tattered, borrowed copy from my school library As soon as I met Bella and the Cullen s I fell in love with a book for the first time I also related to Bella please forgive me, I was 10 years old and didn t know any better because like her I didn t fit it I loved books and the strange and mysterious fascinated me 10 year old me would have jumped at the chance to become a vampire, and Edward s overprotectiveness was seen as only charming.Now, at 19 God, has it really been 9 years , Bella s character is insipid and 2 dimensional Edward is controlling and toxic he constantly calls her silly, absurd and ridiculous when she raises genuine concerns and the only saving grace for this book is the Cullen family The story is even worse with no compelling plot, and a lot is made to propel the story forward while lacking any sense For example, when Bella was on the phone to James and Alice was in the room, how was it that with her Alice s superior hearing she couldn t tell that it was James on the phone rather than Bella s mother There are so many things wrong with this, so when I give this book 2.5 , I m than aware that this is than it deserves, but this book holds a grudging place in my heart and I can t deny the love I once had for this series.

    I haven t read Twilight in years, I didn t know how I was going to feel after a reread but gosh I m as obsessed as ever with this story and the characters Stephenie created.I decided Twilight would be a good place to start for my first audio book It was a little strange at first and sometimes the narrator irritated me, the pronunciation of Bella really got on my nerves but overall it was enjoyable.I enjoyed Edward s wit, that s something I forgot about.Bella s need for Edward can sometimes border on the dramatic line, but in those moments of irritation at her obsessiveness I thought back to my teen years and how my boyfriend was my everything, we can be so dramatic, but love, even puppy love is funny like that.My feelings towards the rest of the characters haven t changed at all I love and adore Alice, Jasper, Carlisle, Esme, Emmett and Charlie Renee, Rosalie, Jacob, Mike and Jessica irritate me for various reasons Billy is just Billy I like Billy.I don t have a quote, there s just too many.I really enjoyed this I m looking forward to listening to New Moon.

    I m reading this after watching the films for like the 3rd time I wanted to see if the books would clarify Bella s obsession with Edward a little but this first installment certainly doesn t do that The chapters are long, a personal pet hate of mine as I hate stopping halfway through a chapter when my lunch break is over or tiredness wins I was very much Team Jacob with the films and I m still very much the same at the end of this Edward is moody, secretive, and manipulative Perhaps reading this as a 33 year old woman means I have the ability to spot abusive traits in a potential partner that an 18 year old wouldn t pick up on Either way, I don t find Edward attractive in the least Perhaps reading on will change my mind.

    I first read this book about two years ago, having heard all the hype about it After reading all the reviews, I realised it was one of those you either love it or you hate it type things Like Marmite Personally, I detest Marmite and I had geared myself up to hate Twilight, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I actually really enjoyed it I originally borrowed the series from the library, but I have recently purchased it for myself, so I decided that I may as well put my new books to some good use and read them all again It has been two years, after all.Forks A small town in Washington, on the Olympic Peninsula the coldest, cloudiest, wettest, most miserable place on earth This is Bella Swan s new home Exiling herself from her mother, Phil, and sunny Arizona, Bella knows that she ll likely live to regret the decision.But beneath the surface, Forks is not quite as dull and mundane as it seems For the town is home to the Cullens a family of pale skinned outcasts, with eyes the colour of topaz Bella is instantly enchanted by them all especially Edward.As he and Bella grow closer, it becomes apparent that Edward is even less ordinary than he first appeared, and that to continue their forbidden romance means putting Bella s life in mortal dangerOk, fine It s not the most fabulous book ever I accept that as romance stories go, it is not the most potent I m sure none of us can have failed to encounter the Still a better love story than Twilight gags but I still enjoyed reading it It may be just another tragic vampire romance , but you have to remember that at the time it was written, it was one of the first of its kind Obviously vampire romance had been covered before, but it was this franchise that popularised the genre, so I suppose you could consider it somewhat original.I think it is actually written pretty well I know that a lot of people have complained about the overuse of purple prose, but I personally like it After all, it s better to be overly informed than to be reading a book filled with ambiguity Although, it s clear that Stephanie Meyer got a little overexcited with the thesaurus It should be used sparingly, not for every other word Nothing kills the reading experience like having to ask Siri what something means every two minutes.Aside from this, I think the detail Meyer includes is what makes the book memorable, because the romantic aspect and characterisation or lack of it certainly aren t.Which brings me to my main complaint Bella It isn t that she doesn t have a personality or anything, because she does It just happens to be an exceedingly irritating personality.I mean, it was fine before she met the Cullens, but thenwell, it all went downhill from there Bella is obsessed with Edward And I don t mean the usual, Oh, his eyes are so dreamy or I wonder if we like the same breakfast cereals type thing I mean LITERALLY obsessed.She s always thinking about him, and gets physically depressed if she doesn t see him for a day When they re together which is most of the time she says things like Would I ever get used to his perfection and I looked at his gorgeous profile and tried to remember how to breathe , amongst other comments.And to be honest, I don t see the big deal about Edward Aside from the odd witty remark, he s a bit lacking in character like a robot, who speaks in the way of a 1920s American And he goes on and on about how he couldn t bear to lose Bella, but not once does he show us any sign of real passion or love for her It s just bloodlust And I mean that literally.It s Team Jacob all the way although he doesn t make a significant appearance until the later books, but still.I feel as though I have to give this book a fairly good rating, if only for the nostalgia of reading it again, and enjoying it again It is actually a nice read and it kept me entertained whilst I was reading it, though I have to say, it is my least favourite in the series, simply because not a lot happens aside from Edward and Bella falling in love There was only one dramatic showdown in the final couple of chapters not described in much detail, since Bella was unconscious for most of it and even that could have been avoided if Bella wasn t so ridiculously na ve and oblivious But still an enjoyable read.I d rate this book7 out of 10 stars.

    Clearly the books are way much better than the movies And the person who hasn t read the books and only watched the movies just cannot come to the conclusion that it s not great Twilight Saga is love

  6. Radhika Radhika says:

    The book is awesome the tale binds us and leaves us in awe The writer has sew the novel in such a way that its like everything happening is real She made us love the characters and the story Only unpleasant thing about the book is that in the description it s written little brown book publication but I got it from atom publication And the book looks old with tint yellow pages.

  7. ElskeMelske ElskeMelske says:

    This book is not a flawless piece of art, but reading it again after all these years, I can see why it caught hold of so many people s imaginations Meyer s style almost slips into stream of consciousness at times, and that style really lets readers feel that they are in Bella s shoes Also, some of the cliche elements of high school romance and the allure of vampires are familiar and comfortable, and Meyer adds just enough twists to make it feel fairly fresh and new I think this is certainly the strongest book in the series, and whatever my issues are with elements in this and the other books, I think I can pretty comfortably say that this one deserves its place in the canon of young adult fiction.

    Ich mag wohl als einer der wenigen M nner dieses Planteten gelten die die Twilight Saga m gen Ich hatte mir irgendwann vor knapp 2 Jahren die B cher in deutscher Fassung dazu gekauft und habe dadurch doch noch eine Menge mehr an Hintergrundinformationen erhalten die, wie ich finde, schon wichtig sind, da im Film einige Passagen nicht nachvollziehbar sind wenn man diese Infos nicht hat Wie dem auch sei, in den meisten F llen jedoch ist es eh ratsamer einen Film oder einen Roman im Original zu schauen lesen Da ich Filme noch nicht im Original schauen kann, da dort meist zu schnell gesprochen wird und der jeweilige Akzent noch mit einspielt, habe ich mich dazu entschlossen das Buch in der Originalsprache zu lesen Es soll sehr verst ndlich geschrieben sein sagte man mir, und so ist es auch..somit habe ich noch mal ein neues Lesevergn gen und den Lerneffekt in Einem zusammengefasst.

    Per festeggiare il decimo anno di twilight, Stephenie Meyer ha riscritto il primo romanzo cambiando i generi dei vari personaggi Bella diventato Beau, Edward, Edythe ecc la trama rimasta la stessa, anche se in alcuni punti ci sono dei lievi cambiamenti Emozionante come sempre.

    Costa pochissimo e mi stato utile per leggere un po in inglese Forse un po semplice per il mio livello B2 credo, o tra B2 e C1 non ho infatti avuto difficolt a leggerlo e non ho quasi mai trovato parole incomprensibili

  11. Severus Severus says:

    Ero indeciso se iniziare a leggere o meno la saga Ci sono tante persone che amano twilight, ma allo stesso tempo tante che lo odiano Tante valutazioni sia negative sia positive.L unica cosa che mi dispiace adesso di aver comprato la saga in digitale.Miglior storia d a che ho mai letto Lettura veloce e semplice, ma allo stesso tempo piena di emozioni, di suspense semplicemente perfetto Consiglio a chiunque, ha fatto un ottimo lavoro Stephenie Meyer I can feel what you re feeling now, and you are worth it cit Jasper.
