Check out my Twilight book summary and review  that I created to help you understand the basics of this great book. Twilight (original title in English: Twilight) is a series of five books for teenagers written by the American Stephenie Meyer. Two complementary works have also been published.

Thanks to this series of novels that began in 2005 with the story of Twilight and which would be followed by New Moon (2006), Eclipse (2007), Breaking Dawn (2008) and Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2009), the author became one of the world's best-selling fantasy writers. The series, 

Twilight book


whose first literary work (Twilight) was made into a film in 2008, has been translated into more than twenty languages ​​and has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide. Additionally, Breaking Dawn was the best-selling book of 2008,1 while the series itself broke sales records in the United States.2

The books, framed within the romantic fantasy, narrate the love story between a mortal girl (Bella) and a vampire (Edward).3 The books are narrated, almost entirely, by Bella; only the epilogue of Eclipse and a part of Breaking Dawn are narrated from Jacob Black's perspective.

The author has spent several years developing the fifth part, a book that tells the same Twilight story from Edward's point of view. Due to the leak of the first twelve chapters on the Internet, Stephenie Meyer suspended the project indefinitely; however, she officially published the draft with the leaked chapters.4

On June 5, 2010, Meyer published a novella (companion to the Twilight series) titled The Second Life of Bree Tanner, a story that chronicles the world of newborns through Bree, a girl who had a brief appearance in Eclipse.
