The Twilight series is just too much teenage angst for me. I find the Sookie Stackhouse series to be much more interesting, not to mention amusing also.

I have a hard time writing a review for this book as a reader, and not as a FAN. Because yes, I am a Twi-hard. I am a card-carrying member of TwilightMoms and a slightly tormented member of Team Edward.

And if you haven't read the series, most of that means nothing to you. So let me be a little less familiar and tell you why you should read this book.

Yes, it's young adult fiction. Yes, vampires are "trendy" right now -- and that alone will lead some readers to abstain. But author Stephenie Meyer has worked some magic in this series.

Twilight uses a tried-and-true formula -- the star-crossed lovers. But its not social status or family feuds or race or anything else quite so mundane keeping romantic leads Edward and Bella apart. There's something a little darker lurking under the surface. They're not only from different species (and frankly, different centuries) -- Edward, a "vegetarian" vampire that doesn't prey on humans, thirsts for Bella's blood above all others. Not that that stops them from falling madly in love.

(sigh!)

Now, is the book great? Probably not. Meyer's first attempt at writing isn't perfect, but she also admittedly calls herself a storyteller and not a writer. And the story is amazing. The characters are well-developed and easy to care about, and the book is a quick read.

I recommend it to almost everyone I meet. Seriously. Read it in spite of the hype, whether you are 14 or 40. And be prepared with its sequel, New Moon, waiting in the wings when you finish. Because this addictive series will sink its teeth into you. [close]
