The main premise of the story is that a young girl called Bella Swan meets a young man called Edward Cullen at high school. We learn quickly that he is a vampire and was actually born in 1901.
Once Bella discovers this, she is not your typical teenage girl who would normally run a mile from monsters. She falls even more in love with him.
This is a beautifully written book about an enduring love. It makes me wish that I had someone like Edward in my life who is unashamedly and passionately in love with me (but I suppose I could do without the threat of death from a vampire bite hanging over my head each time I went in for a kiss.)
Twilight has now been made into a movie and I loved watching the DVD as much as I enjoyed reading the book. The script writer and the director did an excellent job of bringing the words on the page to life.
The other books in the collection are:
- New Moon
- Breaking Dawn
