READ ALL ABOUT IT: 'Twilight' captivates readers of many different interests

Jul. 17, 2008 @ 12:00 AM

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

With a tip like that written on the back of a book, the intrigue jumps off the page and brings readers in. "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer attracts readers of many different interests. The novel wraps thriller, action, horror, mystery and romance into one brilliant masterpiece that sends readers out thirsting for more.

Isabella Swan, or Bella, moves reluctantly to Forks, Wash., to live with her father. Little did she know, the school she attends is home to five animal-eating vampires. One vampire in particular sparks her interest from the start: Edward Cullen. Edward and Bella are immediately attracted to each other, but for reasons that are out of the ordinary. Obviously, because Bella is human and Edward thirsts for human blood, a relationship is a difficult thing to maintain. With obstacles and hoops they must endure, the novel takes your breath away leaving you tense and hungry for more of Edward and Bella's forbidden love.
