I waited a looong time before reading this, and as a result I can honestly say that both the Twihards and the Twi-haters (is that the name for them?) have valid points. Yes, I inhaled the book in just over a day, but yes, Bella the heroine is also a bit of a ditz. Still, like other extremely popular books, I think Twilight has been unfairly criticized. After all, it's a YA book meant to entertain, and it does that extremely well - both for the audience it was intended and for older fantasy fans like me, too.

So, to sum up: if you think you might like Twilight, you probably will. If you think you'll hate it, well, you probably will. It's best to read it with your expectations in check, although I know that's hard given all the hype and hate out there. As a supernatural romance with the kind of sweet damsel-in-distress-gets-rescued-by-the-dashing-prince kind of tale, I say this is absolutely a good read.
