More About the Author

Stephenie Meyer's life changed dramatically on June 2, 2003. The stay-at-home mother of three young sons woke-up from a dream featuring seemingly real characters that she could not get out of her head. "Though I had a million things to do (i.e. making breakfast for hungry children, dressing and changing the diapers of said children, finding the swimsuits that no one ever puts away in the right place), I stayed in bed, thinking about the dream. Unwillingly, I eventually got up and did the immediate necessities, and then put everything that I possibly could on the back burner and sat down at the computer to write--something I hadn't done in so long that I wondered why I was bothering." Meyer invented the plot during the day through swim lessons and potty training, then writing it out late at night when the house was quiet. Three months later she finished her first novel, Twilight.
Twilight was one of 2005's most talked about novels and within weeks of its release the book debuted at #5 on The New York Times bestseller list.Among its many accolades, Twilight was named an "ALA Top Ten Books for Young Adults," an Amazon.com "Best Book of the Decade&So Far", and a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. The movie version of Twilight will be released by Summit Entertainment nationwide on November 21, 2008, starring Kristen Stewart ("Into The Wild") and Robert Pattinson ("Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire").
The highly-anticipated sequel, New Moon, was released in September 2006 and spent 31 weeks at the #1 position on The New York Times bestseller list. Eclipse, the third book in Meyer's Twilight saga, was released on August 7, 2007 and sold 150,000 copies its first day on-sale. The book debuted at #1 bestseller lists across the country, including USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. The fourth and final book in the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, was published on August 2, 2008, with a first printing of 3.2 million copies - the largest first printing in the publisher's history. Breaking Dawn sold 1.3 million copies its first day on-sale rocketing the title to #1 on bestseller lists nationwide.
Meyer's highly-anticipated debut for novel adults, The Host, was released by Little, Brown and Company in May 2008 and debuted at #1 on The New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

Format: Hardcover
I own the individual books in Stephenie Meyer's best-selling vampire series, yet I am going to purchase this collector's set as it is just so beautifully packaged [I saw it at a local bookstore] and Amazon offers a great discount.

What is not to like in this wonderful series? All three books tell a compelling tale of love, friendship, and challenges that the main characters have to deal with. At heart, this is a love story between a mortal, Bella Swan, and a vampire, Edward Cullen. The first book in the series, Twilight focuses on the budding relationship between Bella and Edward and how Edward's immortality and specifically vampire nature poses obstacles to their love for each other. New Moon develops the story further as Bella finds herself lost and depressed after Edward decides to leave in order that Bella will have a 'normal' life. This brings lots of turmoil into Bella's life, and also causes her friendship with Jacob Black, the young American Indian who is also a werewolf to develop and strengthen. In Eclipse, Bella and Edward, once again reunited find their relationship tested by Bella's friendship with Jacob, and also a potent threat in the form of an adversary, a female vampire with vengeance on her mind.

All in all, this is a highly readable series, not merely entertaining, but well-written, and thoughtfully developed. The characters really grow on you, and as a reader, you really begin to care about them. I truly look forward to the next offering by Ms Meyers, and would recommend this gorgeous collector's set for fans of the genre, and as great holiday gifts for young and not-so-young readers!

First, let me start by saying that I truly enjoyed reading this saga; I pre-ordered the fourth volume and am eager to get my hands on it. Meyer has created a wonderful piece of storytelling, an entertaining diversion from daily life. I felt the pull of the characters, I even found myself swooning...and I am a working married mother of two who is rapidly approaching middle age, so that is no small feat.

BUT.

I wondered if something was wrong with me, as I sat feeling dissatisfied, even ill at ease after finishing. With the critics raving and half the blogosphere dedicated to this story, I worried that something cynical had crept into my being. After some serious deliberation, however, I have come to the opposite conclusion. So here's my problem.

Other reviewers have already noted Bella's helplessness, her shortsightedness, and her lack of appeal once the reader sees her subtly belittle her human community in favor of the beautiful, tortured, enigmatic Edward. What has struck me most since finishing is this: Meyer has stated--a few times, I think--that one of her models for this saga was Romeo and Juliet. I see that in the story very much: lovers kept apart (to a degree) by (almost) insurmountable obstacles, pining for one another, completely obsessed with one another, whose burning passion can only end in tragedy. Romeo and Juliet are such marvelous literary figures because of the power of this type of romance--readers are swept into their pathos, feeling their pain and their love. And who WOULDN'T want an Edward?

Not even 50 pages into Twilight and I was hooked! I laughed, I cried, I couldn't put it down. This saga is about a romance between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. And before you say, oh this is just another romance, there is a twist. Edward is a vampire! The first book, Twilight, starts out with Bella, the shy girl with low self esteem, meeting the BEAUTIFUL and mysterious Edward Cullen. Right away there was a connection, though not love at first sight, more like predator meeting prey. But their love grew against all odds. To gushy, right? Well by the end Bella has to fight for her life against the vampire James. Unfortunately, its kind of obvious who wins since the series continues.

New Moon is the second book, and everything starts out perfect, but it doesn't stay that way. Edward leaves telling Bella that she would be better living a normal human life. This plunges Bella into a deep depression. Though, Bella found out that when she did something dangerous, that she could hear Edward's voice. So one day she went cliff diving and almost drowned. Alice, Edward's vampire sister, saw this in one of her visions (she had the power to see into the future). The only problem is she didn't she Bella get rescued, and she thought Bella was committing suicide. Word got to Edward that Bella was dead, and he decides to kill himself too. He decides to piss off the vampire royal family, and he would be quickly killed. Unfortunately again, it is pretty easy to see how everything works out, because there is a third book in this series.

Eclipse. This book has Bella being hunted by Jame's lover Victoria. If that wasn't enough there are mass killings, believed to be new born vampires gone wild.
