BOOK REVIEW “Twilight”

Author: Stephenie Meyer
Genre: Fiction
Language: English
Pages: 434
Publisher: Atom Books
First Published: January 2006

‘Twilight’ is a first book of Twilight series. There are four books in this series by Stephenie Meyer. It is not only bestselling book and book series but also very successful on screen. Till now first three books are adapted into movies and which turned out to be huge grosser on box office. First movie was released in 2008 and last in 2010. So although I saw all these movies I could not stop myself from picking up this book and I think this book is lot better than the film adaption.
This book is actually introduction of all the characters. Author is just warming you up for the real action which is coming in the following novels. But still the book is interesting and entertaining on its own. In this book we will be introduced to seventeen-year-old Isabella "Bella" Swan, who moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington with her father Charlie. In new school she finds her love Edward Cullen who is a vampire. So this book is about their impossible relationship as although Edward loves Bella, he also can not resist the thirst for her blood.
Author handled romantic feelings of a teenager girl. The way she unraveled the Mystery around the Edward was also brilliant. But the climax of the book was the best when some other vampire wants Bella’s blood. And Edward and his Vampire family save Bella from him in a thrilling climax. Her style of writing is simple and uncomplicated. So I am very eager to read her next novels in this series which are ‘NEW MOON’, ‘ECLIPSE’, and ‘BREAKING DAWN’.
I think this is Must Read Books for everyone. If I have to rate this book I will give it 8 out of 10.
