Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1) by Stephenie Meyer

I just love reading books that cross cut my normal reading tendencies and Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” was a very enjoyable reading in this vain. The story started slow, but I soon became very taken with the characters of Bella and Edward.  It is a romantic story done beautifully in a very unusual way.   It depicts two young people who because of the alieness of their situations, can’t express their feelings for each other in a conventional way.  This situation allows Meyer’s to explore “Romantic Love” in a most pure and subtle way.  The story has some nice thrilling/suspenseful moments and comes to a very satisfying conclusion, that sets up the next book.  I believe this a great read for all ages and I think that many folks who would not give this book a second thought might be surprised.  I might also add that this can be considered a work of Science Fiction.  I know many people might be surprised to hear this.  But the story can be viewed as a Love story between a normal human being and an alien.  Highly recommended for all all you young and romantic of heart. (4 out of 5 Stars)

    This book got me hooked on reading! However since I’ve read over a 100 books since then, I’m way more critical of this book!
