Book Review – Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Book Synopsis

When 17 year old Isabella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father she expects that her new life will be as dull as the town.

But in spite of her awkward manner and low expectations, she finds that her new classmates are drawn to this pale, dark-haired new girl in town. But not, it seems, the Cullen family. These five adopted brothers and sisters obviously prefer their own company and will make no exception for Bella.

Bella is convinced that Edward Cullen in particular hates her, but she feels a strange attraction to him, although his hostility makes her feel almost physically ill. He seems determined to push her away – until, that is, he saves her life from an out of control car.

Bella will soon discover that there is a very good reason for Edward’s coldness. He, and his family, are vampires – and he knows how dangerous it is for others to get too close.

My review:

I found this first book started off really slow, but there was something about it, that kept me persevering and I am so glad that I did. This was the first vampire novel I had read, but by the time I got to the end I was hooked and I couldn’t wait to carry on the story in New Moon. Isabella Swan moves to live with her Dad in the small town of Forks, at school she meets vampire Edward Cullen, as they get to know each other they fall for one another, but Edward being with Bella puts her in danger.
