This incredibly long book is really two books. The first two-thirds of TWILIGHT is a fairly engrossing, if not terribly imaginative, vampire romance, with lots of smoldering eyes, palpitating hearts, mood swings, and a nice touch of fantasy. Then in the final third it turns into an action-thriller, as another vampire sets his sights on Bella. Despite its length it is very readable, though it's all too easy to read a hundred pages, enjoy it, and then not be able to remember anything that actually happened.
The vampires are not only presented sympathetically, but with their amazing superhero-ish powers, spectacular looks, and hipster style, they also make vampirism seem like a sensible and appealing lifestyle choice -- though they would certainly fit in better in Soho than in Forks, Washington. Still, it's mostly good fun, and passes the time pleasantly. Families can talk about the popularity of the series.
Why do you think this story resonates so well with teen readers? Is it the writing itself -- or is it more to do with the vampire theme and the doomed romance? This book has sparked many more books about vampires and fantasy books in general, such as Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising or even funny books like Vamped.
Do you think publishers should keep printing these books -- or is the market sort of getting oversaturated? Common Sense Media's unbiased ratings are created by expert reviewers and aren't influenced by the product's creators or by any of our funders, affiliates, or partners.

User Reviews Parents say Kids say. Adult Written by sakuuya October 17, Before he can finish her, Edward and other Cullens rescue her and kill James. He still attacks the girl. Edward prevents her from becoming a vampire, and she is treated at a hospital. After they return to Forks, they go to the school prom together. Bella says that she wants to become a vampire, but Edward cannot help at the time.
Bella's desire to become a vampire increases throughout the series. Edward continues to refuse as he hates being immortal, and does not want Bella to suffer the same fate. Meyer claims that the idea for Twilight came to her in a dream on June 2, She dreamed of a human girl and a vampire who loved her but still wanted her blood. Inspired by her dream, Meyer wrote the draft of what is now Chapter 13 of the book.
At first, Meyers didn't name her two main characters. She named the female lead Isabella, thinking she would have chosen that for a daughter. Rosalie and Jasper were originally named Carol and Ronald. Meyer continued writing to the end chronologically, not worrying about the backstory. She lettered the chapters instead of numbering them, Chapter 13 being E. The last chapter of the first draft kept getting longer and longer, so she wrote epilogue after epilogue.
However, she realized that she wanted to explore many of the events in the backstory and the reasons behind the events in the chapters, so she planned to write a chapter backstory. Instead, these turned into twelve chapters by the time she was finished. Her sister liked the book and encouraged Meyer to send the manuscript to literary agencies. An inexperienced assistant at Writers House responded to her inquiry, not knowing that young adult books are expected to be about 40, to 60, words in length.
Stephenie Meyer has said the apple on the cover represents the forbidden fruit from the Book of Genesis and Bella and Edward's forbidden love. She uses a quote from Genesis 2: It also represents Bella's knowledge of good and evil, and the choices she makes.
Meyer's inquiry letter was initially rejected by 14 agents. For the tenth anniversary release Meyer released Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined alongside the original Twilight. Life and Death is a reimagining of the story with Beau a male human and Edythe a female vampire as the leads. Initial reviews for Twilight were generally positive, with Publishers Weekly called Meyer one of the most "promising new authors of ". Martin of School Library Journal addresses the appeal of the novel to be due to its clear and understandable nature, allowing readers to become fully engaged  Norah Piehl of TeenReads also wrote, " Twilight is a gripping blend of romance and horror".
She also praised the depth of emotion shown between the main characters for pinpointing "the angst of teenage love. Kirkus gave a more mixed review, noting that, "[ Twilight ] is far from perfect: Edward's portrayal as monstrous tragic hero is overly Byronic, and Bella's appeal is based on magic rather than character. Nonetheless, the portrayal of dangerous lovers hits the spot; fans of dark romance will find it hard to resist. A little more "showing" and a lot less "telling" might have been a good thing, especially some pruning to eliminate the constant references to Edward's shattering beauty and Bella's undying love.
Twilight was adapted as a film by Summit Entertainment.
The screenplay was adapted by Melissa Rosenberg. On July 15, , Entertainment Weekly confirmed rumors that a graphic novel adaptation of Twilight was in the works. Stephenie Meyer reviewed every panel herself. In fact, the characters seem to be an amalgam of Meyer's literary imagination and the actors' actual looks.
