Everybody knows the drill -- a girl from Phoenix named Bella Swan "exiles" herself to the rainy overcast town of Forks, so she can live with her dad. When she isn't moping, she attends the local school and is struck by the beautiful, aloof Cullen family (and particularly with the standoffish Edward, who seems to be bipolar). He also has superhuman speed and strength, as Bella discovers when he saves her from a runaway van.
In case anybody needs to be told, Eddiekins is a vampire, albeit one who doesn't adhere to any of the traditional vampirey rules... except sucking blood. And despite the danger to her person, Bella develops a Phoenix-sized crush on him despite him constantly insisting that he's ohsoverydangerous.
It's a given that any rabid fans of "Twilight" will gobble down the graphic novel adaptation of the first book's first half. As for everyone else? Well, there are still spurts of rather pompous, un-teen-girlish narrative ("I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him") and Bella still whines way too much about mundane stuff ("You could have saved yourself all this regret for not just letting that stupid van squish me!").
Fortunately, Young Kim did a pretty decent job translating the novel into comic book form, and I ended up enjoying her streamlined, sped-up version of the story.Read more ›
This graphic novel ignores the movie, and instead goes for a more true rendition of the novels.
Ok, so I was at the library the other day and saw this book and decided to grab it. Since twilight came out I have only read the original 4 books in the saga before all this craziness about the movies came along. I haven't read the short novela or the guide because I don't feel it anymore. When there is a huge hipe about a book I tend not to read it even if I want to. I wait for everything to calm down and pick books that are not so popular. But I was standing there thinking of how long it has been since I last read Twilight so I picked it up.
I haven't read a graphic novel before and at first it was kind of weird reading the words and looking at the beautiful pictures but after I got used to it I loved it. It reminded why I loved Twilight so much in the first time and how the characters really are, because I had forgotten. The characters in the movie are so different from the characters in the book. I wanted so bad to pick Twilight again, remember the moments Edward made me giggle and sigh and the heart attacks Bella gave me with her decisions.
This is only the first half of the book and it stops at the meadow scene. It didn't have everything in the book, it wouldn't be possible but they included all the important stuff in the book and it was a good welcome back into the story. If you haven't picked up Twilight in a long time and want a quick fix, read it.
