Book Summary : Twilight, the first novel in the Twilight series, narrates the story of seventeen-year-old Bella Swan whose life takes a dangerous turn when she falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen. Twilight is a vampire romance novel aimed at young adult readers. It is the first novel in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. It presents the story of Isabella Swan, or Bella as she is called. The story is presented from Bella’s perspective. Bella is a shy and mature seventeen-year-old who leaves Phoenix, Arizona, to move in with her father Charlie in Forks, Washington. She joins Forks High School, where she quickly becomes the center of attention, especially among the boys. On the first day of school, she finds herself seated adjacent to Edward Cullen, who somehow seems to take an instant dislike to her. Edward then disappears for a few days. Surprisingly, upon his return, he becomes quite friendly towards Bella. Bella intuitively knows that there is more to Edward than what meets the eye. Moreover, his abnormal abilities, unusual physical features and strange behavior fuel her curiosity further. One day, Edward saves Bella’s life in a mysterious way. This makes her even more determined to find out the truth about Edward. When she learns about the local tribal legends from her friend Jacob Black, she comes to the conclusion that Edward and his family members are not humans, but vampires who consume animal blood. As the days pass, Bella and Edward fall deeply in love with each other. Unfortunately, the arrival of a new vampire coven in Forks spells trouble for Bella. James, a vampire who is part of the new coven, becomes obsessed with her and wants to hunt her for sport. Bella’s life is thrown in danger, twisting and darkening the plot further.This is a love story with bite.

Positives : I found everything in this book positive. Romance between a human and a vampire, what a nice and interesting combo! In fact, with myself not really into fantasy stuff, after the original Vampire novel, I had been avoiding all the rest. Except of course when my hands fell on Twilight and I got hooked. I got sucked in and engrossed from the first page itself and kept turning its pages till the end. Even though the book is 464 pages long and much longer than the usual novels that I've read so far, Twilight was an easy read, written in a fast paced manner. The book doesnt have any heavy duty, fancy worded thinking literature, so its a relief for someone like me who mostly prefers light novels.
Of course, the movie made me love the novel even more as the characters fit so well, exactly as I had imagined them while reading the novel. A thums up!
Negatives : None!
