Let me start off with that the book is good. Not omygod it's amazing but I couldn't bring myself to give it four stars its a 3.5. I liked the characters, they were a little difficult to understand at times, but I eventually got over it. The writing was strange to me, I was unfamilar with the author's writing style so it took me a while to get used to. The plot is well rounded, but the lead character Claire was a little annoyingly weak it got annoying, now I'm the type of person that likes bada$$ heroines and that she is not. But it's a good read nonetheless, I would call it great although if you want to be intertained this book will do it.(less)

But after reading more books that were actually better, i realized that this whole series is completely ridiculous.
First of all everyone says they can identify with bella, er...why? Bella is a fine character for the first half of twilight then she becomes this annoying little school girl, in new moon was a serious over reaction, he is a guy for gods sake, some people say thats romantic i'd say its psychotic, she's so absorbed in edward that she doesnt care about anything its all edward edward edward, she was literally acting like a drug addict in rehab. in eclipse her addiction got worse, she added jacob, bella acted completely selfish and stupid. she wants to be a vampire so bad, rosalie tells her the cons and all she cares about is tanya liking edward, what the hell? at the end she says she loves jacob but she cant leave edward, CAN'T. even jacob says hes like a drug to her.
next, why does everyone love edward so much? okay he's really good looking, anything else? Oh yeah he's stalkerish, who doesnt love that? he's controling, love it. he's dead, awesome. he's as moody as a pmsing girl.
jacob used to be a cool character but now he's so arrogant and snarky, he has no real reason to like bella, i mean what he only is "in love" with her because she fake flirted with him to get information on the moody vampire that is edward. yeah that is a great reason to love someone.
stephenie meyer has said that she's not anti-feminist, but anti-human. uhhh, what kind of message is that sending? that you can only be a strong women if youre a mythical creature.
honestly i dont get why its such a big fanbase, but if youre an overly romantic teenage girls will and do love it.
Okay this was the book that got me reading, I loved this, LOVED.

But after reading better literature I realize that this book isn't all it's cracked up to be. Bella is so freaking annoying, I mean seriously she wants to become a vampire for a guy. Now a lot of people find that romantic, guess what? It's creepy and a little bit sick.
Next, the only thing Edward has is his looks and his music, that is all, other than that he is a total douche. He stalks Bella, I don't care what people say going into a girls room to watch her sleep is considered stalking, as is randomly watching her, and following her to Port angeles, which I guess was a good thing considering what happened.
Now the writing was good, Stephenie does know how to put a story together, I found her characters well developed,just not likeable.
I honestly don't see why every teenage girl and some middle aged women, find Edward so remarkable, he's pretty much every brooding hero with a dark past in every romance novel. What makes him so different?
There are some good points, I found the other vampires interesting, although the villain really had no motive except that he's evil, oh wow where have I heard that before?
It is a good read nonetheless, I just don't understand the phenomenon, it's no Harry Potter. (less)
