Twilight is a romantic story about two love birds Edward Cullen and Isabella Swan. They are deeply in love with each other and can’t live a moment without each other.
The book has been written in such a way that you cannot leave it until the very last page.
It is a love story of a human falling in love with a vampire. In the beginning the birds didn’t somehow fraternize, as Edward kept away from Bella as much as possible. It was extremely irresistible for Edward to stay away from Bella. Her amazing smell tempted him till the core of his heart that he finally starts mingling around with her. Their fraternity became the latest gossip of Forks. Bella doesn’t know that closer she gets the more she is at risk. And it might be too late to turn back.
Twilight is a deeply compelling book full of chariness, twists and turns. It’s not one of those boring love stories; it is full of thrills, controversies and wariness. Thus, it is undoubtedly the bestseller by a virtuoso author Stephenie Meyer.

Book Review
Isabella Swan expects her new life in Forks to be as dull as the city. She compromises he happiness by giving her mother Renée a new life with her love Phil. Bella being generous came to Forks to stay with her father Charlie (Chief Swan). Charlie lives alone in Forks and knows how to keep himself busy. To her surprise, Charlie had already bought a truck from Billy Black for her. Bella’s new classmates don’t seem to mind her awkward manner and low expectations; in fact they seem to like her, with the exception of Edward Cullen. Edward is the adopted child of Dr.Carlisle and Esme Cullen. He is the youngest Cullen-having two brothers and two sisters-all adopted. Edward looks dashingly gorgeous. But the only problem is that he doesn’t date. Bella is extremely fascinated by Edward and finds him the pink of perfection. Edward is a golden boy and there is no such girl in Forks who is deserving enough for him. Not realizing Bella was falling irrevocably in love with Edward and the more she gets closer, the more she is at risk. An incident changed Bella’s view about Edward. Standing at the parking lot opening her truck she threw a glimpse at Edward who was standing at the other end of the lot. A car skidding, spinning wildly across the ice of the parking lot came towards Bella. It was going to hit her. Something hit her hard but not from the direction of the car. It was Edward, he stopped the car just away from her, and his hands shuddered into a deep dent in the side of the van’s body. This incident made Bella sure that Edward was not a human. After a few days Bella went to the beaches around La Push with her friends on a nice sunny day (just unlike the weather of Forks). Over there she met Jacob (Billy’s son) who cleared her doubts. He told her that Edward and his family were vampires, and that they were restricted to some areas. Bella was positive about three things. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him- which she didn’t know how dominant that part may be-which thirsted for his blood. And, third, that she was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him. On asking Edward, whether he was vampire or not, Bella got the reply as a ‘yes’. Edward told her about his entire family and their history. Bella now found that it was too late to turn back. Edward and Bella became so close that it was difficult to stay without each other. Not realizing and opening Bella to the vampire world, Edward took her for their family baseball game. The forest in which they played was a hunting place for vampires. They came across James who was a vampire and couldn’t resist Bella. This mistake of Edward almost killed Bella.
Lying in the hospital bed in Phoenix, Bella without her consciousness is just awaiting to see Edward. Edward who is extremely sorry for his mistake was with Bella till she was in the hospital. The ending of the book is extremely romantic, Bella and Edward dancing at the prom in twilight.
Deeply seductive and irresistibly compelling, Twilight is an extraordinary love story of Bella and Edward. It is the thrilling tale of a vampire romance at high school. The story, recounted in hypnotic, dreamy pose, encapsulates perfectly the teenage feeling of stress, sexual tension and alienation.
