About the author

Biography of Meyer, Stephenie

Stephenie Meyer was born in Connecticut in 1973. Her family moved to Arizona shortly thereafter. She is one of six children in her family. She received a bachelor's degree in English from Brigham Young University. Twilight was her first novel and was the beginning of the popular Twilight Series, which includes New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. All the books within the Twilight Saga were made into feature-length films.


Review by Library Journal (2010-07-01)

Covering roughly half the first novel of Meyer's mega hit paranormal romance, this first volume of the manga-i sh version topped sales charts, and, yes, the sequel is coming. When her divorced mom wants to travel with husband No. 2, pretty Bella Swan retreats in a huff to the boonies of Forks, WA, to live with her father. As she eases into her new high school, she falls into an odd love-hate relationship with Edward Cullen, one of the mysterious-and gorgeous-Cullen kids.

Romantic interest from other cute guys makes things more complicated, and one fellow knows a bit too much about the Cullens and the local vampire-werewolf turf wars. What's a girl to do? With a superhero vibe enhancing the romantic vampire mystique, the Meyer novel holds all the high seriousness and roiling emotional appeal of 19th-century gothic melodrama while incorporating plenty of action.

Verdict: Kim's excellent art elevates a considerably simplified and rather jerky adaptation into a truly pleasurable visual experience: attractive page design, swoon worthy characters, and judicious use of color for special impact. Recommended for public and high school libraries.

Rated 5 out of 5★by Best books ever written! The Twilight saga is the best books ever written. Could not put them down! Can't wait to re-read, again and again!! 02/02/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★by Entertaining... but flawed The first thing I’ll say about this book is that it’s very engrossing- it definitely has a way of drawing you in and making you want more. However, the story definitely has it’s flaws, including a very uninspiring main character, predictable overly-romantic angst, and a rushed climax. At the end of the day, it's still a very worthy read- though not for someone who lacks the patience it takes to put up with today's melodramatic teen love stories. If you're going to jump this bandwagon, you've got to be in it for either the characters or a good fantasy romance, else risk being dissapointed at it's dilution of supernatural action. 07/25/2008
