    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Overall

    I am definitely not the target audience for this saga. This book is essentially G rated, pre-teen girl romance novel. The author did a very good job writing this book for the audience she was shooting for. I am very easily entertained by most books, and have a pretty low standard in order for a book to please me. The worst part was that the writing wasn't even very good. I'm open to all sorts of different novels. If the writing is good, it doesn't matter what genre the book is in, it is still good to listen too. Character development was slow and shallow and story line was painful.


    This book was just too much awkward teenage ridiculousness for me, as well. After the umpteenth time of the awkward girl talks to boy scenario, I had to stop listening to the story.

    The vampire theme is just templated over the average teenie romance novel. The author doesn't utilize this angle very well, and creates just very average scenarios in which the reader has to trudge through. This is just another example of a writer cashing in on the novelty of the story, rather then the actual quality of the writing.

    Again, if I was a young teenage or pre-teen girl, this story would seem like the second coming of Jesus, but since I'm not, this book was more like the second coming of Vanilla Ice.
