I absolutely loved this book and couldn't wait to read the second in the trilogy. Although it doesn't float everyone's boat, I felt the characters were well portrayed and the plot was exciting and engaging. I'm not usually a fan of books featuring the supernatural but there is something special about Twilight!Read moreLess
This is not a typical book I would read but a lot of people were commenting on how good it was so I decided I would give it a try. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it and I went on to read the rest of the books in the series. I thoroughly enjoyed all of them.Read moreLess
"I chose this book mainly because I was wondering what…"
I chose this book mainly because I was wondering what all the fuss was about. And ten minutes after starting it, I was beginning to understand. It is beautifully written, with emotions captured beautifully. I feel a bizarre sense of empathy with the lead character, and even wish for my own Edward..
I am halfway through book four, and still loving it.Read moreLess
"Twilight fever has my circle of 40 something, close girlfriends…"
Twilight fever has my circle of 40 something, close girlfriends in a vice like grip.Yet it's a story of teenage love and vampires. So, the question is -why? Because Ms Meyers captures so vividly the essence of being in love and having to resist the physical feelings that accompany that state. That's a position that regardless of age, we've all been in. And may well be in again...Read moreLess

"Well, I thought this was for teenagers but goodness me,…"
Well, I thought this was for teenagers but goodness me, how wrong I was, amazing book!! As a mum of two, with a degree going on and a house and a job etc abit of escapism was just what I needed. It's romantic, tense, exciting and satisfying all at the same time and flashes you back to being a teenager and makes you wish you'd met a vampire so exhilarating as Edward. Take a look - this is not just for kids!Read moreLess

I loved this book so much, I have also read the following 3 books and couldn't put them down. I am also looking forward to see how the books turn out in the films.Read moreLess
"My husband bought me this book and I had no…"
My husband bought me this book and I had no idea that it was a 'teen' book. It was great pure pure escapism. And yes like the previous reviewers I was a teenager all over again!! 18 going on 40....I am now reading slowly reading 'Breaking Dawn' the last of the four trying to 'eke out' the escape!Read moreLess
"I have to admit that this book (and its 3…"
I have to admit that this book (and its 3 sequels) are a guilty pleasure of mine. This is a connect the dots book which is by no means intelligently written nor shocking original. BUT it is a perfect form of escapism and is so easy to just pick up, read and enjoy. Definatly worth a read, but I think you'll see what I mean when you do!Read moreLess
"Yes I know it's loved by teenagers, but I now…"
Yes I know it's loved by teenagers, but I now know why! Within three pages I was 17 and completely in love with a boy called "Edward", believe me at 32 that's quite a feat and this is quite a book.Read moreLess
