Twilight book review

I started reading this series a long time ago and stopped reading it after New Moon.  But, now that the movie is coming out this Winter I wanted to reread the series.  So far I have read the first two books but have decided to split them into different posts because of my differing opinions on them.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer                                      *****

When Bella, the main character, moves to a rainy Washington town called Forks she doesn’t expect that everyone will love her, since she is the new, strange girl from California.  But, she is still shocked when one of her classmates, Edward Cullen, seems revolted when they have to sit together in Chemistry.  Their relationship takes off once Bella determindly figures out what Edward’s secret is and, although they have a rocky start they soon become almost inseperable.

I liked this book enough that I went out and bought it after I was done reading it the first time, which is something I don’t do often.  I loved the characters and thought it was fun learning about the Cullens.  The highschool setting and the personalities of the characters where real and even had me laughing.  This is one of those books where my mood in real life was reflected by the mood of Bella from where I left off in the story.

From another point of view, my mom thinks that too much time was spent on Bella and Edward’s relationship and not enough on plot, but I disagree.  Since this is a series, I think that more time can be spent on the little details which is what this book does.  And, Meyer proves that she can write the action scenes too, especially at the end of the book.  After I finished Twilight I absolutely couldn’t wait to get New Moon, and would recommend this book to anyone.
