Twilight Book Summary


Fall in love with the addictive, suspenseful love story between a teenage girl and a vampire with the book that sparked a "literary phenomenon" and redefined romance for a generation (New York Times).
Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Isabella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn.
Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Isabella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife -- between desire and danger.
Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.
It's here! #1 bestselling author Stephenie Meyer makes a triumphant return to the world of Twilight with the highly anticipated companion, Midnight Sun: the iconic love story of Bella and Edward told from the vampire's point of view.
"People do not want to just read Meyer's books; they want to climb inside them and live there." -- Time
"A literary phenomenon." -- The New York Times

  • What IS a good teen romance novel?

    Not this. It's time to be candid here and tell everyone who classifies this as "one of the best romances ever written" that there are more mistakes in this book when it comes to grammar and repetition than there are on the average 3rd grade paper. Not only does this book fail to give you ANY emotional attatchment to Bella, who comes off as a mopey teenager who hates every single aspect of life, but it also fails to develop WHY Edward fell in love with this trainwreck of a girl in the first place. Clearly Edward must be mentally disturbed, because no man would stand in someone's room while they're asleep and listen to them talk. Bella also must be on the same boat as Edward, because anyone who is FLATTERED by this obviously doesn't know how a man should treat a woman. And for any of YOU who think that this "really shows how much he loves her" has a really warped and twisted idea of what love truly is. What aspect of Edward does Bella actually like? Other than he's very attractive (which she proceeds to tell us on every other page), and that he gives some level of danger in her life which I'm sure thrills her. I'm not really sure I truly know the dynamic of their relationship, because Stephanie Meyer decides to spend pages rambling on about the way Bella positions her hands or the color of someone's hair instead of just getting to the point. Obviously pointing out some descriptive details is a major aspect of what writers call "imagery" but taking a time out from an important event and spend 5+ pages on a pointless story that is completely irrelevant just makes you want to skip it and continue reading what ACTUALLY MATTERS. Meyer really needs to learn what a "good book" is, and go write one, because so far, she has absolutely none published. Building up 200+ pages of a story, forming a plot (or trying to, and failing epically), and then having the whole thing end in a matter of 10 pages is very disappointing. I was expecting an epic ending or something that would leave me on my toes, but it didn't. I read the whole series anyway, in spite of my head telling me I was an idiot, and I wish I could take back that part of my life which as I so lovingly put it,has gone right down the crapshoot. So please, think very carefully before reading this, because the book is basically uneventful, stupid, boring, bland, and lacking depth and even logic.
  • great , better than expected

    By Man lover 711
    as the title says it was very good and entertaining. a little cheesy at times (especially the movie) but still a good book
  • Waste of time.

    By Christina O
    Seriously. Read a real book.


  • so G O O D

    By jamaicanbhd
    Amazing!! I wish the movie was more like the book. Only little things, but all those little things add up. You get to see Bella for who she really is behind all that “awkwardness” & Edward. He’s nowhere as serious as they make him in the movie. He’s that goofy, caring & playful boyfriend who’s crazy in love also & not afraid to show it in the book
  • Love it

    By chorltte flarile
    So I watched the movies first and feel in love with recommend for all people that love romance and it was the best i Evan bought 6 dolls from it and the trivia game so good and the best actors I think Jackson rathbone, Ashley Greene, Nikki reed, and kellan lutz should be in more. Movies love the first one and Robert and Kristen are my hero’s and Nikki reed🤩🤩

    I fell in love with the book instantly. This book is so amazing in many many ways and it made me go into reading more. Stephanie Meyer is truly a genius cause her writing made me buy THE WHOLE SERIES! so incredible. (team edward jacob, but he’s not really my type y’know?)
  • Absolutely Horrible

    By Gigglem1
    Vampires should never ever sparkle, Bella is not a heroine of any kind and Edward is a creepy old man who sneaks into teen girl’s rooms to watch them sleep at night. No thank you.
  • So good

    By darth kitty-101
    As soon as I started reading I could barely put it down (staying up late reading it) and as soon as I finished I rushed to the library to get the second, third, and so on.
