Hooked-a real fan of the Twilight Sagas. Shame there isn't more to this story line once I've read Twilight-Breaking Dawn it's over.

Format: Paperback
Stephanie Meyer writes vampire fiction as many teenage girls do -- overblown writing, sexy cold vampires, and a vacuously attractive heroine who serves as the readers' stand-in.

And so it's hardly surprising that her megahit debut "Twilight" is essentially a teenage fantasy about finding the Perfect Hot Immortal Coverboy Who Longs For You Alone. Innocuous sparkling vampires, buckets of pointless teenage angst and a plot tacked on at the last minute leave this one of the more bloodless examples of vampire romance.

Klutzy Bella Swan is oh-so-self-sacrificingly going to live with her small-town cop dad, and is appalled by the student body -- all the local boys decide that (ick!) they like her, and all the girls are shallow idiots compared to her.

Then she's struck by the ash-pale, vaguely incestuous Cullen family -- an especially by the Hawt and Brooding Edward Cullen. Edward doesn't seem to like her much, resulting in much Teen Angst. but when Bella is nearly killed by a runaway car, he somehow manages to zip across the parking lot and knock away the car. Bella eventually figures out that he's a vampire-- a "vegetarian vampire" with the power to read thoughts... except hers.

Despite his fears that he'll hurt her, their smoldering chemistry (and Bella's tantalizing smell) draws them into a relationship... at which point, since the plot has had zero non-teenybopper tension, three two-dimensionally evil vampires enter the scene, intent on hunting Bella. The Cullens whisk her away to keep her safe from this trio -- but their enemies have more than one way to find her.

The book "Twilight" is essentially the eroticized fantasies of a teenage girl, purple of prose and taking itself hilariously seriously.

Format: Paperback
After hearing so much about this book, I finally was persuaded to read it. What a disppointment! I can't believe this is being compared to the Harry Potter books, in fact, I'm surprized it got published at all. I would have to say I couldn't imagine what the attraction is, except that I remember being eleven and so 'in love' with Donny Osmond, it hurt.

If you are not a googly-eyed preteen, or at least have the same mentality, you will probably not enjoy this book. 90% of it is just endless descriptions of Edward's eyes, his hair, his chest, etc. etc, ad nauseum, complete with drawn out, boring descriptions of Bella's longings for him. Written in an erotic style, it feels like reading porn, except there's no porn.

The characters are two-dimensional and lacking motivation. What on earth would inspire a 100 year old 'man' to fall in love with an unnattractive, empty-headed, self-centered, 17 year old girl? Smell alone just doesn't cut it for me. I also couldn't stand Bella as the heroine. She is snooty, stuck up and shallow. I think Meyers tries to paint her as self sacrificing, but she just comes across as bitter. None of the humans, who actually seem like friendly people who treat her kindly, seem to be worthy of her attention. I found myself rooting for her death by the end.

Ah, the end - it came all too late for me. And could you BE more predictable? Not a plot twist to be seen anywhere.

This book could have easily been done as a Little Golden Book, and the audience would have been more appropriate.

Format: Paperback
I don't really think there is anything more I can say about Twilight that hasn't already been said by people far more eloquent and cynical than myself, so I will sum up my thoughts on Twilight with the following quote, delivered by the beautiful, godlike, angelic, liquid-topaz eyed, muscular Adonis known as Edward Cullen and the passive-aggressive, clumsy-as-a-plot-device, endlessly swooning Isabella Swan:

"Aren't you hungry?" he asked, distracted.
"No." I didn't feel like mentioning that my stomach was already full - of butterflies.
- Twilight, page 91

Congratulations, Stephenie Meyer, you just bummed me out.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book at an airport for lack of finding anything else to read. I finished it in 2 days. Now that is good...and bad. I have to admit that the story captivated me, but it was too easy to read...way too easy. I liked the characters, but towards the end, I wished Bella would stop mentioning just how good looking Edward was all the time! If I had read this at 15, I would of loved it. Now at 25, I've read too much to appreciate it fully. I have to admit though, the way she described how she was feeling the first time she was in love really did bring me back to being 17. But this is the thing, it felt like a harlequin novel for teens, with the twist being that she's in love with a vampire. Which is what intrigued me to read this book in the first place.
Also, there is a lot of repetition towards the end, which frustrated me the most, because I was taken away from the story and started to think about the author and why she used a certain word again, say this again... I'm undecided if I'll read the others, to see if the book matures, but from the reviews, I have a feeling it does not.

OH, and I thought for a second of my boyfriend reading this and I actually laughed out loud at the thought. Definitely geared for girls.
