This started a few years back.. I was so bored of attending lectures that I thought of going to the library and getting something to read. So fiddling with the books , my hands laid on this book with a pretty couple on the cover page. Looking at the cover page it was pretty much obvious that it was a love story. I am not much of a love story person ( at least back then). I went through the synopsis.
At start I was pretty amused with all the vampire and werewolf thing, but as I started reading the book, the first line I remember and will never forget was ” Have you ever given a thought on how are you going to die?? But dying in arms on someone you love seems a good way.Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of someone else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something”. This was very usual for a normal love story start. So i finally decided to give the book a try. Line after line, Page after page, the curiosity built up.
The characters in the book started appealing to me.I have a tendency to imagine the characters actually in front of me. The reality quotient started to rise day by day. I started empathizing with them, sympathizing with them and eventually fell in love with the characters. After a certain point of time I could relate to a few situations ( gladly or sadly not with the super natural beings. )This was not all. I spread the twilight fever amongst my friends who at start were very resistant about it, but eventually fell in love with it too. Book after book. Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, etc.
The films made it more appealing and made it more believable. With time their were distractions and the craze reduced and now after a long time, while cleaning my bookshelf found the entire series. I could not control myself from reading it and the Twilight era started again.
Stephanie Meyer, great job with the series. Many books and sitcoms have started with the twilight concept as the base. But the original will always remain unmatched. The bar set is high and with every book and movie is increasing and proving to be the best vampire fiction all the way.
