so the lion fell in love with the lamb...

I finally finished reading the Twilight Series' latest book - Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. I'm officially a huge fan of her works and her self now. With the limited time I have - only being able to read for a couple of hours per day - I managed to finish the 754 pages (the thickest of the bunch) of Stephenie's compelling world of supernaturals in a week and a half.

The first book, Twilight, is now a major motion picture. The second, New Moon, will also be a movie in a few months' time and the third book of the series, Eclipse, is sure to come next. All four books were different and interesting in their own way. I find the fourth installment of the saga the most fascinating and heartfelt yet. I was laughing aloud and crying in silence (to keep my roommates from noticing) while reading it. If you hadn't known I was reading, you'd think I'm crazy. It was a three-books-combined-into-one (which explains the ginormous fatness of the book). Book One and Three were written from Bella's perspective while Book Two was from Jacob's.

Unlike most love stories, the novels were not all the way romance. There was an enjoyable amount of action, fast cars and super powers involved; it was a partly supernatural fiction after all. Stephenie made the story of a human girl who fell in love with a vampire and has a werewolf as her best friend as interesting as Lord of the Rings. The supernatural world - which started portraying itself in Stephenie's mind as a vivid dream she had one night - is not the typical “let’s kill the vampire with a pitchfork” idea. The vampires don't have fangs and they don't sleep in coffins. It was more like Heroes + Interview With The Vampire (minus the coffins) rather than Bram Stoker's Dracula. I think it's fair to say that Edward & Bella is now in the same line as Romeo & Juliet, and Jack & Rose.

I can't wait to read her next novel - a science fiction for people who don't like science fiction, The Host. Also, the other dimension of the Twilight story, told from Edward's perspective, Midnight Sun which was temporarily postponed due to illegal leak on the internet of the incomplete draft. Just hope she gets her mood back and finish the book real soon.

I've always have a thing for guys with sharp features and pointed canines..kinda like a vampire.
that could be one of the reasons why I like the saga.

a writer with limitless imagination and the ability to explain it that could be one of the reasons why I like Stephenie Meyer.

Finito? Bravo.. I'm half way reading "New Moon"... now i'm in love with Jacob ahaks! I kinda like the Supermassive Blackhole. It's like adrenaline rush. Have to rush for "Eclipse" and can't wait to start on "Breaking Dawn." They are a real SAGA. Worth buying hehe... :)
