Twilight is a vampire/romance novel written by author Stephenie Meyer. Twilight series consists of Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn and yet unfinished Midnight Sun. I read in the news about this series after 'Breaking Dawn' was released and was a worldwide bestseller. It was a long wait in the public library and after I saw the trailer of Twilight which is releasing on 21'st November 2008; I said to myself "I have to read this book before the movie releases". The books pivotal point is the excellent chemistry between it's the lead characters - Edward Cullen and Isabella (Bella) Swan. The author exposes Edwards's anger, anguish, love through his eyes and his body language which is so compelling you can't help but fall in love with the character or just falling in love all over again. The story begins with Bella moving to Forks, a small town in the state of Washington, USA which receives the highest amount of rainfall and hardly any sunshine. Here she meets Edward Cullen who is a veggie vampire (does not drink human blood). Edward tries to keep away from Bella as she is his ultimate desire, the best heroin a drug addict can get. He can smell her blood and her body as the fragrance of lavender. As much as Edward tries to keep away, Bella is drawn more and more towards her in spite of his warnings that he is the bad guy and dangerous to her. She learns that he is from a vampire family but still her love for Edward is so empowering that she is not afraid of him at all. Edward is deeply in love with Bella, but he has to restrain himself from attacking her. He has to fight constantly with himself. It's the ultimate sacrifice of a predator falling in love with his prey. He has to have an extremely strong will power and furthermore protect Bella from his clan of vampires who still hunt humans. The love between them is so strong that each one wants to protect the other. By the end of the book Bella states her wish to become a vampire herself to be with Edward to which she is vehemently refused. I am waiting to dig my teeth into the next part (New Moon) to read what challenges this couple faces next.
