As I said, though, Meyer wrote this for a YA audience and as a first book it was really pretty good. It had me hooked, and it was LONG so I felt like I was getting my money's worth. Her later books got better as far as the writing. I'm actually glad I started reading the series after all of them were published, because I was able to read all of them without having to wait a year for the next to be published. Now I'm waiting for her next adult fiction novel to come out. I think The Host was the best. But Meyer got lucky and capitalized on it. Hats off to her.
First love is all about those over the top feelings, feeling as if THIS one person is the person for you, that you can't live without them-and Meyer tells Isabella Swan's and Edward Cullen's tale by conveying those emotions surprisingly well.
I can see why teenage girls/boys and even adults have flocked to this series-it's doing what Harry Potter did for younger kids, and as the mother of two teenagers I am ALL for that. I originally picked up this book because my stepdaughter said she was interested in it. I figured it would be something for us to talk about, a way to bond, and after reading this all I can say is...I get it.
Any teenager/or adult for that matter, that has had their first love is going to see themselves in parts of this book. The first time Edward, the vampire boy, admits that he loves Bella will remind you of your first time hearing those words. When Bella thinks Edward is in danger, the overwhelming fear will envelope you. I won't give anything away, as it is a quick read, so pick it up I don't think you will mind lazing away a few days on this book.
I agree with the fantastic reviews, but I also see the points of the bad ones.
Are you looking for well-developed, deep, multidimensional characters? Look elsewhere. Well-written, eloquent language? Not here. Cohesive, flowing, credible plot points? uh-uh. FUN? In abundance.
Let's face it, if you're looking for an example of classic modern American literature, you're in the wrong place and you know it. If you want feminist lit or role models for independence, you won't find it here. Some of the conflicts and "mystery" are contrived, but...it;s like a fluffy movie you watch only for entertainment value, not to make you think- a guilty pleasure. And it really does transcend age, despite how it seems. I know people from 17-50's who have enjoyed these books (even a male or two!)
Twilight is my guilty pleasure, and I am not ashamed. I am also glad Edward is really 100, because I don't have to feel guilty about being smitten with a fictional character who is also underage. Read this for it's entertainment value. You won't be sorry.
