by Stephenie Myer
I tried not to get on the Twilight bandwagon, especially since it was tailored more to a younger crowd, but the vampires sucked me in, (pun intended). I was proud of myself for having resisted the temptation of subjecting myself to all the Harry Pottermania. This time, I couldn't oppose the literary spell of Stephenie Myer, who is now one of my favorite authors. First time for me with a fiction writer. Now I cannot wait to read the sequels, which will be a first time for me as well, to get lured into submerging myself into a series. I've always been a sucker for the world of vampires and werewolves. When I got wind of this modern style "Romeo and Juliet" (instead of Montagues and Capulets, it's vampires and humans, which by the way is shamelessly referred to in the book), I had to investigate it for myself. The very observant, and articulate narration for a seventeen year old by Bella Swan, "the leading lady", entices your literary tastebuds as much as the vampires' bloodlust. Although her character is a little too whiney, klutzy, and "damsel-in-distress" for my taste, and the lead character Edward Cullen is seemingly a bit too controlling and overbearing at times, the fact that he is not human makes it understandable and tolerable. You can't help but connect to and experience the range of emotions with the characters and the hardships they undergo to keep they're love, and themselves alive, (particularly her). I'm excited and dreading the movie when it comes out the end of this year. You know how that goes. Over all it's creepy-romantic, romantic-creepy, you get caught up in their lovey dovey moments thinking, "Ohh, he loves her SO much, even though he wants to kill her..."
