Summary Of The Book
Twilight is a vampire romance novel aimed at young adult readers. It is the first novel in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. It presents the story of Isabella Swan, or Bella as she is called. The story is presented from Bella’s perspective.
Bella is a shy and mature seventeen-year-old who leaves Phoenix, Arizona, to move in with her father Charlie in Forks, Washington. She joins Forks High School, where she quickly becomes the center of attention, especially among the boys.
On the first day of school, she finds herself seated adjacent to Edward Cullen, who somehow seems to take an instant dislike to her. Edward then disappears for a few days. Surprisingly, upon his return, he becomes quite friendly towards Bella.
Bella intuitively knows that there is more to Edward than what meets the eye. Moreover, his abnormal abilities, unusual physical features and strange behavior fuel her curiosity further. One day, Edward saves Bella’s life in a mysterious way. This makes her even more determined to find out the truth about Edward.
When she learns about the local tribal legends from her friend Jacob Black, she comes to the conclusion that Edward and his family members are not humans, but vampires who consume animal blood.
As the days pass, Bella and Edward fall deeply in love with each other. Unfortunately, the arrival of a new vampire coven in Forks spells trouble for Bella. James, a vampire who is part of the new coven, becomes obsessed with her and wants to hunt her for sport. Bella’s life is thrown in danger, twisting and darkening the plot further.
