did not like it
bookshelves: 1001-kids, romantic, teen, vampires

I read this book a few years ago when it came out and I needed to read a YA book to recommend for all the X-mas shoppers at the bookstore. I thought it was terrible, and I still don't understand all the fuss about this book.

In my view, this book is not a real vampire book. I'm not a huge vampire lover, but I've read my share in my day (Stoker, Rice, King, etc) and this book whitewashes all the dark, scary & erotic undertones out of the vampire mythology, replacing it with a shiny perfect good vampire Edward, who is so pure that he doesn't even drink human blood. BORING! Where is the danger? Where is the (blood)lust? Not in this series, I'm afraid.
