Past all the hype with this series, you'll find something not quite fleshed out. It suffers from a Mary Sue type main character (meaning a stereotypical, un-fleshed character that the reader can easily envision their self in), and the writing in general is not all that. But Meyer does manage to put a neat little twist to the world of vampies, and Edward is THE perfect man for any woman, and that is the main reason this series is doing so well. It's a fun read if you can get over how simple and stereotypical of a "romance novel" it is. Just don't expect a fantastic example of literature.

Even though it is classified as a Young Adult book, I found it really enjoyable. And the romantic scenes are harmless, I would easily give it to my 12 yo to read as well.

1st book the series - awesome! I loved reading a paranormal romance without all the explicit (and often un-necessary) sex. I could not stop reading. I have read the 2nd book New Moon and am waiting for the 3rd book this fall (Eclipse) & intend to buy it the moment it is released. 5 stars ***** My fave series!!!

Just finished reading the whole series. The books are much better than the movies. At times, Bella is bit insufferable, but the rest of the characters are done very well. I wasn't sure I'd like them, but my family insisted I read them. Glad I did!

An excellent book. The first volume of the four-book Twilight Saga. When I first heard about it I was doubtful (teen vampire romance not being my usual preference for books), but then I found the boxed set of all the volumes for a great price. I decided to give them a try, and I'm very glad that I did. In the first book you essentially get to read about the formation of the relationship between Edward Cullen (vampire) and Bella Swan (human). While the writing (and editing) of the books are not of the best quality you can find, the originality and entertainment present in the books make them all well worth the read. I had trouble putting them down until I was finished, and wouldn't mind reading them again. Definitely highly recommended.

I could hardly put this book down--and subsequently read all four books in the series in rapid fire. I am not a "vampire" believer/reader. These books were great though!
