I am always looking for good, clean fantasy and usually end up reading books directed at teens to avoid anything too sex-laden or trashy. But even though the audience for this book is young, I found real characters with genuine emotional depth, an intriguing story and a fantastic perspective into an extinct culture. I can't wait for the next one! The narration was great (a little fast at times) without any awkward voices or straining, and I was completely addicted to this fabulously written book.
I loved the whole series and felt lonely when it was over! Great story, good writing and the narration really pulls you into the story. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I found it very addicting and can't wait to get into the next two. It is free from illicit language or sex and my ONLY complaint is that the narrator lacked emotion. The writing really draws you into the characters and I was really sad to see the first book end!
Just get over yourself and read these books, already! Remember, there is a reason they are so ridiculously popular, even my husband has read them! Meyer's writing is a little tedious at times, sort of unseasoned, but the characters will draw you in and soon you too will be fantasizing about becoming a vampire!
I hate books with explicit sex, violence and foul language. Unfortunately this book has it all, but it is presented in such a way so that it is no sensationalism, but realistic. There are times when I think the language is overboard, so beware, this is not a light read. Yet, the story is fascinating and the insights into the time period unparalleled. Don't read if you have a weak stomach.
