This was the first book i ever read by this author i bought it beacuse of all the hype about the movie that came out recently. Love the whole book. I used to live near forks Washington years ago so I know the area. I was able visualize the whole thing. Bell was the first to grab me i know what is like to be the new kid tryoing to fit in to a childhood place you visted as a teen age. I was so torn beween wanting her to be with Edward and being with Jacob. the book had me all the way though a most read for anyone who loves stories about vampires and love stories this one has it all love suspense and a good cry. Even the boys love it they can imaginae what it would be like to be Edward and Edwar is so sesitive it oulls you right in.
