My review on Twilight (Book 1)
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
After all the hype about how Twilight was the "greatest vampire story EVER and how Edward and Bella's love surpassed all previous love stories", I just HAD to find out for myself what the truth is. I am not one to say "Hey you're wrong for liking this book" nor am I one state somebody is "right for not liking this book", however, to each their own. I am behind on writing this review.. but here it is.
However, I am in the group of the mindset that no, this is NOT the greatest vampire story ever and no, Edward and Bella do NOT have the greatest love story either.
The book bored me. Seriously. I wanted to put a restraining order on Edward for being a psycho stalker and put Bella in a domestic violence shelter for his possessiveness. Then I wanted to lecture Bella and then I reminded myself this is fantasy. Not a good fantasy, mind you, a really, really BAD one. I cringe at the thought of any man with any characteristics of Edward. I stalk you and am possessive of you because "I love you". Ouch. The glittering vampire idea wasn't very inspiring. I like a good old fashioned vampire, one who can't go out in the day, has pale skin (No glitter PLEASE!), and is kick ass all the way... Edward, well he wasn't. However, I did dig Jasper, Alice, Rosalie, and Emmett sounded pretty hot. There was not enough action for my liking, except near the end when I thought Bella was going to get thoroughly destroyed, yeah, it sorta sent my heart racing. Sort of.
I guess for the fangirls, it's a great book. For me, personally, it fell flat. Sorry, I really tried to like it.. but I couldn't. I gave away my copy of Twilight and New Moon (didn't want to waste any time with it).
This book was purchased out of my own pocket. Not a review book. However, I wish I didn't pay for it..lol.
