Twilight - Stephenie Meyer


I've come rather late to this current bestseller - everyone I speak to has already read it, the bookshops are full of vampire spinoffs, and the second film of the series is imminent. So is it worth the hype? Clumsily written, poorly structured, unsympathetic characters, transparent reference to what was then a hypothetical movie version... and utterly compelling. It's been a very long time since I stayed up late, reaing furtively. There's always room for a little escapism via teenage wish fulfilment, even in one's 30s. Now, who can lend me the sequel?
