Author: Stephenie Meyer

Characters: Edward Cullen, Isabella Swan, Jacob Black, Esme Cullen, Carlisle Cullen, Emmett Cullen, Alice Cullen and Jasper Cullen.

Stephenie Meyer has made a labyrinth of words in which everyone lost themselves. Twilight is a supernatural romance story centering Isabella Swan (Bella) and Edward. Since Bella is the one narrating this story the readers get an insight to Bella's intense feelings.

Bella is an ordinary seventeen year old girl who had came to live in Forks with his father, a place which is always overshadowed with clouds obscuring deadly secrets.

On the first day of her school Bella finds herself intrigued by a Godlike boy but the problem is the more she tries to get closer to him the farther away he goes. Now what will Bella do?

On the other hand Edward is tortured by his thirst that can only be satisfied from Bella's blood but in a weird twist of fate, he falls in love with her. So either he would kill Bella and satisfy his thirst or change her into a vampire - and take away her humanity - so that he could keep her forever. No matter what he choose he will end up killing the first woman he has fallen in love with in over hundred years. He believes that he could find a way to keep Bella alive and still be with him. Can he? 

Meanwhile, Bella befriends Jacob who is a native American but even his tribe has a secret which makes them natural enemies of vampires.

In the midst of all the secrets and supernatural creatures, will Bella be able to live happily with Edward and more importantly, will Bella be able to live at all?

It's an exciting story and you can't stop once you start reading. It has dramatically changed people's opinion about vampires. If Bram Sroker's Count Dracula gave people a new reason to fear the dark then Stephenie Meyer's Edward Cullen has given millions of teenage girls the reason to sigh and wist their boyfriends were remotely close to him.

Needless to say, it's a beautifully written novel with an amazing vocabulary and have received a great response all over the world.
