Book Review - "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer
OK, so I haven't been Twilight's target demographic in three decades (silent scream) but I loved it! I got totally sucked in (pun intended).
Meyer weaves a wonderful story with characters that are intriguing, yet despite being vampires are somehow familiar. Obviously, being a "young adult" novel, the writing is simple and straight forward, no complicated symbolism or language - just good storytelling.
We are introduced to a unique "family" of vampires through Bella's eyes. As a matter of fact, the whole book is in Bella's voice. First person narration is difficult to write, yet Meyer never messes up - good writing or good editing, or both.
Along with other younger "fanpires", I have a crush on Edward Cullen...no it is not sick, he's over 100 years old! But he is oh-so-romantic.
I've already started reading New Moon the next book in the series of four. I'll let you know how I like it.
