The Twilight Saga

This week, I am taking a break and giving my blog over to a guest host who will be filling you in on the latest craze to hit the teenage world (anyone between 11 yrs - 18 yrs) and for those who are young-at-heart.

Joanne will be giving us her input on the Twilight Saga which has impacted so many people, especially with this week's release of the sequel movie NEW MOON. So sit back, relax and hope you enjoy this teenage blogger's insight into the world of romantic vampire novelist, Stephenie Meyers.

**********************************************************************************


Halloo Everyone, 'Tis I, Joanne! Just here to give everyone some information about the Twilight Saga craze. The picture above has the names of the four twilight series books in order from the first release to the last - Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.

The first book to begin this saga is called Twilight and this book has been made into a movie (also called Twilight). The main characters of the novel are Isabella Swan (called Bella) and Edward Cullen. In Twilight, we view things through Bella's eyes as she moves away from Florida (where she lived with her mother) to a rainy downcast town called Forks (where she lives with her father Charlie, a police sheriff person). She meets new friends at her school, Forks High School and there she catches her first glimpse of the Cullens, a group of vampires who live inconspicuously in Forks.

The Cullens are all "pale and beautiful" (according to the book) and she immediately notices a "bronze haired boy" whom we are informed is Edward Cullen. She develops some degree of fascination with him, but he rejects her in the first class they have together. He moves away from her and puts his hand over his nose, as if he smelt something bad. Later we find out that he was attempting not to smell her blood and attack her. The Cullens are peculiar vampires for they only drink animal blood, not human blood. This rule which they have made for themselves saves Bella and also allows the Cullens to live amongst humans without being detected. She ends up encountering Edward several times at school. He ends up saving her from a speeding car coming towards her by running with lightening speed and stopping the car with his bare hands. Bella here concludes that he is not human and spends about two to three chapters of the novel wondering what he is.

After internet research, Bella concludes that Edward must be a vampire and he later admits to it. He also admits to loving her and to watching her sleep in her room at night. They start going out and this is noticed by the entire school body. Later they go off to play baseball with the other vampires Alice, Jasper, Emmett, Rosalie, Carlisle and Esme. They are approached by vampires who feed on human blood and the Cullens protect Bella (the only human present) from the invading vampires. One of the invading vampires, James, decides to kill Bella and after a long chase the Cullens slay James to protect Bella.

Edward realizes that he is immortal whilst Bella is not. He then decides that he will devote his life to protecting and loving Bella. Bella is seriously hurt during James' attempt to kill her; however, she recovers enough to attend her senior prom with Edward as her date. They waltz clumsily together, all the whilst unaware that they are being watched closely by arch enemy, Victoria, who is/was the mate of slain vampire, James. Victoria plans her revenge to kill Bella as they had killed James and so the book ends.

Long story really. But hey, its a novel. And that's as briefly as I can put it. The story was a success. I loved it. And no summary I give will ever do the masterpiece any justice. I suggest you read it for yourself! You can also see the movie, which goes along with the story line for the most part. It stars american actress Kristen Stewart as Bella and english actor, Robert Pattinson as Edward.

Although many readers were disappointed with the movie....it just wasn't as good as the book. Especially with the initial appearance of actor, Taylor Lautner, who stars as Jacob Black, a shapeshifter who is able to transform into a werewolf. However, this is not more the case as Jacob as developed into a hunky and sexy character in the sequel, New Moon. See below picture as proof of this!



Anyhoo, I've said all this about the Twilight book was to help you understand what New Moon, the sequel to Twilight, is all about. For those of you who don't already know, the film version of New Moon will premiere in American movie theaters on November 20th. I will be back here on Belizegial's blog sometime next week to review both the New Moon book and movie.

Please let us know what you thought of the book and the movie and whether my little review has helped you in your quest to know more about romantic vampires. lol

I love vampires. I love werewolves and I especially love stories about them. That being said, I have had the worst time with the Twilight books. I just can't get into them. I don't think it's the story so much as the writing style.

If you like these books, try checking out L.J. Smith, she has some good ones. Not the Vampire Diaries, there's another series. And, of course, you can never go wrong with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Best series ever!

I've read the books but haven't seen either of the movies. They were okay reading for me, but I'm not a rabid fan like most people. Could be because I'm 46, not 16, lol. ;o)

Hope you're feeling better and have a great weekend, Enid.

Love and hugs,

Diane

hi Enid. great review Joanne. i haven't read, and haven't a desire to read the book, but liked having understanding of what all of the hype has been about. Jimmy Kimmel has pretty much had the whole cast (or so it seems) on his show each nite for the past 2 wks. look forward to your next set of reviews Joanne.
