I am one of those people that has watched all movies and never read the books and I’m kinda glad. They’re a tad of a let down but that doesn’t mean I’m going to continue the series.
Vampires. This is basically what this about. Vampires were around for a very long time before Twilight came along and then bamn. This comes out in cinema and it’s all anyone can talk about then it’s a worldwide phenomenon.
So this book is weird. The main character, Bella is kind of annoying. She’s a typical damsel in distress character which I hate. Not all females need saving especially not from Vampires but that is what she is. She is kind of a boring character as well. I feel like Stephanie Myer created this boring main character to make the Vampires be more in this book. And let’s face it they are.
And there’s the love story. You can’t call it that because it’s not one. A vampire becomes obsessed with a human. That’s not a healthy relationship. It seems different when watching the movie but in the book it’s not. It’s staring your right in the face and it’s incredibly cringe worthy.
I’m not going to lie, I had better hopes of this book especially after watching the movie and I think that is probably where I went wrong but that’s fine because I still like it. I don’t love it I just like it.
But that doesn’t mean for one second that it isn’t a bad book, because it’s not. It is a good start to a series.
