Also, is it only me or is this age situation getting a bit out of hand? Personally, I think that I look much cuter now at 21 than I was at 18 so I'm just not sure what the huge deal was. Given, I wouldn't want to wait until I was 40 for my vampire lover to change me... but 20 isn't old!
This book for me, was an enjoyment to read when I was younger, (don't get me wrong just because of my iffy review.) but it was definitely a bit slow until at least halfway through the second portion. However, the ending had me standing on my toes, pumped to see where it went next. Now that the Volturi knows about Bella, what are they going to want? Can Bella save Edward from his own destructive self?
I found this book more of a transition type book than a real deal within the series.
Stephenie Meyer first book was Twilight, which as we all know went on to become a best-selling series and movies. She originally formed the idea through a dream where she saw a young man sparkling in the sunlight. She is also author of the best-selling book The Host which is in the process of being made into a movie as well.
