The pictures are very well done. So nice for a young reader to be able to see what is happening while reading about it. I look forward to the rest in the series for my kids.
What draws me to Twilight series overall is I find it very wholesome. I have enjoyed sharing it with my children as I think it paints a wonderful story of love, values, accepting people and many other qualities I uphold strongly in our home.
I gave it 4 stars as I do think it ended rather abruptly and would have liked to have seen a bit more in the ending. But I'm sure that's just done to keep you on the hook for the next in the series.
Told in first person by the girl, Bella Swan, the book tells the story of their getting to know each other, meet each other's families, and fall in love.
This is a charming book about first love and is a book that was hard for me to put down although it is a large book. I read it in one, all-night reading. It's also a book that can be read repeatedly--I have read it several times.
I think that sometimes simple stories with simple writing serves a purpose. In Twilight the simplicity of the teen love story is charming, bringing up visions of first loves everywhere, of memories of days gone by.
