About this item

When seventeen-year-old Bella leaves Phoenix to live with her father in Forks, Washington, she meets an exquisitely handsome boy at school for whom she feels an overwhelming attraction and who she comes to realize is not wholly human.

Our #5 Top Seller

Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. When she meets the mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen--a vampire--her life takes a thrilling and terrifying romantic turn.

I couldnt put this book down it was the best book I have ever read, Stephine Meyer also has 2 other books new moon(1) eclipse(2) and Breaking Dawn comes out in April 2, 2008! If any body wants to read this book you should, it's a thriller and a Romance novel for all ages I'm 14 and I loved it, in my appinion Stephine Meyer is the best author on earth.

I'm about to start reading the series and I've heard from more than one person that the dynamic between Bella and Edward are the focal point for the entire story. Any favorite moments that I should watch out for?

  • A. Twilight- my favorite moment was when he first walks into the cafeteria and she sees him for the first time. New moon- i would have to say that the best part was when she thought he would disappear when she "woke up" Eclipse- pretty much the whole book but if i had to choose it would probably be when he "kidnaps" her Breakind dawn- my favorite part is the last chapter. Edward finally gets to look into her mind

  • A. I would have to say that my favorite part was the Meadow scene. it was so wonderful how they expressed their love towards one another and it set sparks in my heart and from then on i knew that they would be together forever. of course there were some tough patches but Yeah!, they toughed it out!

  • A. I think my favorite moment was right after the electric moment in the biology class when edward walks bella to gym class and for the first time lightly brushes her check with his fingers. In that breif second your heart stops and you wish you were bella. It is even better in midnight sun due to the fact that you can understand edwards feelings toward her...i remember when my husband made me feel that way and it brings all the butterflies back to my stomach.

  • A. I have a ton of favorite bella & edward moments...but if I choose one..it would have to be the first night edward stayed w/ bella and hummed her lulaby to her. And when edward kidnapped her in eclipes! And of course their first night together on their honeymoon in Breaking Dawn!

  • A. I have to say with one other reader who said they enjoyed Stephenie Meyer's script of Midnight Sun. I too have read it 3 times, and I think it is one of my most favorite. Other then that, one of my favorite Edward/Bella moments would be their first night together after their trip from Italy. She doesn't want to sleep for fear that he'll disappear. ( in eclipse )

  • A. (May Contain Spoilers) My favorite Bella and Edward moment is in Breaking Dawn after Bella gives birth to Renesemee. Bella's heart stops and Jacob leaves the room knowing Bella's fate. Edward simply never gives up. He got her heart beating again and gave her a chance at life with their daughter.

  • A. My favorite moment is when he lays in bed and watches her sleep. I love that when my husband lays in bed with me and rubs his hands through my hair until I fall asleep. Another moment that is so sweet is when she hurt her leg and was wearing a cast he helped her over the step AWW! I have so many more. One more is when he was in the hospital with her and said he would never leave her.

Is this book for grown ups or is it okay for kids? My niece wants it for her birthday but I'm afraid its too scary, she is 13 and a really good reader but what age group is it intended for? The movie seems like a heart throb kinda thing, so is the book the same?

  • A. for the most part yes the movie is like the book but a lot is left out of the movie that is in the book.The books are not scary. I am 14 almost 15 and if she is 13 I think it's ok. For little kids no I don't think it's ok for them to read any of the books in this series just because there are alot of big words and they might not understand what is going on or what certain things are.So I would say that anyone under 13 should not read these books.these books are good for teens and adults but not little kids.-hope this helps

  • A. For a 13 year old it should be fine...I would wait to buy her Breaking Dawn (the 4th book), but Twilight would be fine for her...nothing risky or anything, its more action than heart throb if you ask me!

  • A. I am a 32 yr old lover of almost anything vampire and I loved the books. My daughter is 15 and also loved them. I think that these books are great for yound and old alike. They can be a good ground breaker if you have a teenager that dont talk that much to the parents(like some do). Maybe you can have somethings in common and they will open up more to you.

  • A. These books portray some intense relationships. All children are different but I would not recommend it to someone under 12, minimum. A parent should read book 4 before the child does to make sure the child is ready for it. It is a great series for mothers and daughters to read together. Lots of fodder for great conversations about healthy and unhealthy relationships.

  • A. My 12 year old daughter originally purchased this for herself, although I choose to read it first to preview not necessarily trusting what popular culture says is allowable. My opinion, for what it is worth, is it is not appropriate for tweens/early teens even though that is the target audience. The basic vampire story is fine, but it is the way the author goes about creating the desire (for lack of a better word) that the main character, Belle, feels for this handsome and apparently irresistable vampire, Edward. If we are so concerned with how fast our children are growing up these days, then we should be concerned with the types of literature they read as well. So to answer your question regarding scariness ~ no, not scary at all but definately make believe and unrealistic. Yes, unfortunately it is apparently "geared" for the tween/teen set, but you will have to judge this on your own. And YES, definately a "heart throb kinda thing." Again, unfortunately, but hey, in this culture, that is what sells.

  • A. I am a 40 year old mom, and I have read the series once and am on my second round. My daughter is 10 and she is now on New Moon.. Although there are vampires in it, it is not the focal point. You know they have to drink blood but you are not given the gory details. It is a love story, plain and simple.... Not scarey at all.

  • A. I wouldn’t have children under the age of ten watch the movie. The director purposely made it a point to not show a lot of blood in the movie so it is not gory. However, the content and themes are more geared towards tweens and teenagers.
