Stephenie Meyer: Twilight

Great read from a new author.

Twilight is the first book in a
series, and luckily for us readers, there will be a sequel, tentatively
set for release in October this year. 

It's not a must-read, mind, because it's Meyer's first book, and it shows. She got the big, important things right, and missed the little things. 

Twilight's
written in first person POV, and she stayed in Bella's POV successfully
throughout the book. I also feel that as a whole, none of the
characters did something that jarred me out of the book because, IOW,
great characterization. 

But the little things.. She's got pet phrases, for example, and it seems the copy editor didn't catch them. 

It's
certainly worth a read, but I'd suggest that you wait to get the
paperback version that's going to be out soon (I think) or borrow it
from the library.

    I thought that this was an awsome read! I have had issues returning to some books because they fail so badly in comparison! GO MEYER!!!!!

    Let me put it this way, Bobbi. I thought it was great, with reservations. :)
