Book: Twilight Saga
Author: Stephenie Meyer
I will write some things about Twilight because it was the saga I loved for a while before I knew what true vampires could really be like (The Vampire Diaries). I am not going criticize either Stephenie Meyer or her work, she has potential, but she is also a new author well newer than L.J Smith or Anne Rice.
If the movies were under review, then I would be a critic and probably a mean one, but I created this small space to talk about books; with that said, let us focus on a saga that changed and touched many, and one that is still a great read. Here it is.
I loved it, the first time I read it took about a weekend, and I thought it was a great YA. I did not have much experience in the department when this one was in my hands, but I felt like Edward was the greatest guy ever, then others came. New Moon I held it in my hands and was so excited then I opened the book and everything changed (when the Fire Nation attacked *grinning* sorry Avatar fan), seriousness now, I stared reading New Moon which was a gift from a cousin, Edward left, and suddenly the world came crashing down, you could not breathe, everything was falling apart **sigh**. Bella, please! Keep it together, woman, there are other vampires in the world, find another; I am quite aware that it is the love of her life, soul-mates and all that jazz but still, the way she crumbled I was suffering, until the end when all went back to normal. I was flipping through the pages, desperate to get to the parts where she was not a mess.
I read Eclipse several times, I loved it that much, it had so many little things and Edward was back at being as wonderful as in the first book, even better. Alice is one of my favourite characters, lovely, charming, taking no sh** from anyone. Jacob, Jacob is well him, especially if you picture him as Taylor Lautner. The background stories were a nice bonus and did not feel like they were there just to fill out the space and make the book even bigger.
Side note: When I first read them. I used to be such a fan, quoting the books uploading photos.
I read Breaking Dawn, and that one had some parts (mainly Bella’s POV) that made me read faster so I could get to the action, which did not happen, the movie is so not the book. But I was content with the book, it was nice, that sounds forced. Let me try again, when I read those books many moons ago, as in years ago, I liked them very much, I thought they were great, then I read The Vampire Diaries and Damon & Stefan Salvatore took root in my heart.
Do I recommend the Twilight Saga? Yes, not as strongly as I would have back in 2008, but it is good to read all books, to do comparisons to see if you like this one more than another. You have to read at least the first one to disapprove and have valid arguments, if a true fan is reading this, I’m sorry if you are offended in some way.
Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper, Carlisle and Esme are characters that will forever hold a special place in my book-soul, Edward and Alice too and Jacob and Nessie.
How they act, that is what I like, their personalities, all of that is great, but the marble hard vampire thing who shines in the sun? Not so much, not after reading the others.
I would like to add that if Catherine Hardwicke would have directed all the movies, then the last four could have been much, much better.
I think that’s all I have to say. Thank you for stopping by and reading about Twilight. Keep in touch with me through my social networks, share, comment, let all your friends know about this, and especially have a nice day.
