OVERALL RATING ( 4 out of 5) :

Alright so after seeing the Twilight movies and being around people that are obsessed to the max, I'd lost my liking for it. This book rekindled the fire though. I usually don't read graphic novels so I was pretty happy when I ended up enjoying this book. I cannot explain how beautiful the pictures were. I don't know how to explain them. There were some that looked so life-like.The only thing that bugged me was the transitions between scenes. There didn't seem to be any at all. I don't know if thats common in graphic novels or not but I found it very slightly tricky to follow because of that. I wish this was the whole Twilight book but it was only up to the meadow scene so it left you at a cliffhanger. Even though I already know the story It did make me eager to read the next one. Bring on volume 2! Soon please. :)


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the book & I do agree with the lack of transitions for the scenes. It jumped around a lot, but you are also right, that it's common in graphic novels.

  2. YA!!! I like that we all have 3 different views on this graphic novel. It is exciting to read others review, and see what they thought of it.
