Twilight by Stephenie Meyer is a book about a vampire and a girl,
heres the description from my schools library website:

When seventeen-year-old Bella leaves Phoenix to live with her father in Forks, Washington, she meets an exquisitely handsome boy at school for whom she feels an overwhelming attraction and who she comes to realize is not wholly human (http://library.sd41.bc.ca/cataloging/servlet/presenttitledetailform.do?siteTypeID=-2&siteID=&includeLibrary=true&includeMedia=false&mediaSiteID=&bibID=186128&walkerID=1194016598490)

Heres a place to discuss about the book

(also has anyone read it yet?)

DEFINATELY an amazing book. I've heard things about bella being shallow (and i wouldn't recommend this book for younger readers) but it's really well-written and definately a favorite

It's really awesome - Go Twilight! Aaanddd, Breaking Dawn (book 4) is out this summer, I think. The way it's written is almost hypnotic, heck, I even got one of my guy friends hooked on it, even though it's a romace.
The style is such that I'll pick up my copy, go 'I'll just read a couple chapters', then I look up and an hours gone by and I've read the whole thing...lol, yeah...

I have heard good things about it. My friend keeps saying she will lend me her copy but she has not been eger to give it up lol! Im excited to read it.

I LOVE this book and the other two. I can't wait for the fourth book and the film!

My friend lent me the book and we've been pretty much obsessed since, it's great!

I love Edward Cullen too! :D :love:

04-26-2008, 11:27:48
YAY for Edward Anthony Masen Cullen!! You don't get more obsessed with this than I am... The first chapter of breaking dawn is out with the Eclipse special edition on 31st May. And breaking Dawn is out on 2nd August. And also the film is out on the 12th December 2009... but I hate all the actors... well, most of them anyway...

04-27-2008, 14:21:25
I think the actors for the film are mostly lovely, although I don't think the casting of the characters is entirely correct, well, mostly not at all.

But I love Robert Pattinson and Jackson Rathbone - just maybe not as Edward and Jasper.

I agree Electrogirl the cast for this movie is not the best and i think that the guy who plays Jacob is way hotter then Robert Pattinson. I think the movie will be good but with better actors it could be great.

So I went to the midnight book release for Breaking Dawn:)
I have to finish Eclipse but it wont take long.
Love the books so far!!
Got to go to sleep now..then reading tomorrow lol

heh, i hate to admit it, but i stayed up until SIX THIRTY--yeah, six thirty (6:30 AM!!)--on a school night! i got thirty minutes of sleep but it was worth it. :D i recently want to the midnight book release of breaking dawn but it took me longer to read that one because i had to get used to some reading glasses. :longface:

Yeah I've heard a lot of good things about Twilight, and I bought the book a little while back but I've still not got around to reading it yet. Been trying to read through the Harry Potter books and a couple of the Stephen King ones too. (I know it'll take me ages. :P) I'll let you all know what I thought of it soon. :) xxx

02-27-2009, 21:32:45
im getting the book next week for now iv olny seen the totally ausome movie

I was reluctant to join the whole "Twilight" craze.
All I had ever heard of it were comments from horomone-crazed tweenage girls. And all they did was swoon over "Edward."
So, in aggravation, I avoided the whole topic.
Eventually, I spoke to more educated individuals on the matter. A girl that worked at a book store provided me with a very intellectual view on the saga.
Admittedly, she piqued my interest.

So I watched the movie, to see what all the fuss was about.
Because I'm cheap, I watch bootlegged versions of movies online on my computer.
Because of the poor quality, I couldn't fully understand what was going on -- such as when Edward steps into the sunlight and begins glowing.
So I got the books to understand.

The books are well written, but repetitive.
"He's gorgeous and mysterious, and I'm plain..." seems to be the reoccuring theme.
Right along with "I can't believe I have him, I don't deserve him..."
The book was written so well, that I decided to stick with it.
Stephanie Meyers is extremely gifted when it comes to putting words together.

After reading the entire saga, I was glad I had.
The story was definitely addicting at certain points.
Though I was disappointed in the fourth book when...
they were all ready to fight off the Volturi to protect Renesmee, and then nothing happened.
That was the only part I considered a let down.
Though Bella's self-consciousness made me want to smack her.

Furthermore, the Twilight saga is like the new Harry Potter.
It's getting younger children eager to read, which in itself is exciting.
It's coinsedence that Rob Pattinson(sp?) played both Cedric Diggory and Edward Cullen.
But if I meet him one day, I plan to tell him that he looks exactly like the guy that played Cedric Diggory. Just to be a pain. :p

Overall, I'd give the saga a four out of five.
I enjoyed it.

...and just because I know it's a popular subject...
I'm so on Team Jacob. And Team Emmett.
Edward was always too serious for me.
At least Jacob and Emmett had a constant sense of humor throughout the novels. :)

I liked the books after I read them but I never loved them...and when I had first read it no one else had realllyyy gotten extremely into it yet and now everyone is all "twilight OMG like its sooo awesome edward is my husband and I love sparkly vampires"...It's annoying..
I also found the movie terribleeee. I couldn't stand it. I am not spending $10 to watch the other ones..I'll wait till they come on the movie channels on my tv lol

Jacob and Emmett are my favorite too!!:) They have the most character and realistic personalities. Edward and Bella are both to clingy and childish. Honestly I loved when the books were from Jacobs side of view..I hated to go back to Bella lol

Well even though I'm an oldie.. I did enjoy these books. They were cool. I read all 4 in 4 days (yes, yes.. speed reader, bookaholic). Some parts annoyed me.... but still good. I'm not fussed on seeing the movie they never seem to do a book justice but I know i'll watch it eventually when it comes on TV one day. I have seen those T-shirts around that say "I kissed a vampire, and I liked it" or something like that, now I know what they are on about. :D

I think if it gets kids reading it's gotta be good.

I really liked the books, I knew about them before it became a hype, but always forgot about them XD
I read the first 2 books in dutch, finished them in a day and a half. And read the last 2 books in english, finished them in 2 days.
Stephenie is an amazing writer, altough I think the Host is a little bit hard........but I'm reading it in english, so maybe that's the prob :P
The movies are okay, the first one sucks to be exactly, altough I have seen it like a dozen times. And the second movie is awesome, well the wolves are awesome and there six-packs ofcourse :P

I think that the whole glitter vampire stuff is weird. A vampire doesn't glitter!!! They aren't shiney, when the are shiney the look well kinda weird! A vampire dies in the sun, or as in the vampire diaries, they have something that protects them against the sun.

Well this is what I think about the books and the movies. Tomorrow I want to go to eclipse with my mom, so I hope that she doesn't have to work late :D
