Okay, I've nearly finished Twilight and I'm reeeeeeally enjoying it. I just ordered the other two - I hope they come tomorrow!
The writing style is a bit pedestrian - she's not a great writer - BUT, her characters are very addictive and she's extremely good at describing.
In terms of her writing - structure of the book is odd. Nothing happens for the first two thirds and it was frustrating me to read the details of Bella's life. It was almost literally a day to day account and nothing happened. I know she was establishing, but I swear a lot of that could have been left out. No doubt it will be left out of the movie.
Once a little exposition comes out and we have more information, it really picks up a lot more and becomes quite gripping.
I have a really little bit left, but I'm at work and can't read it. But a good sign is that I WANT to read it, and instead I just ordered more. LOL.
Glad it's a series. Looking forward to reading more of it.

I was standing in the middle of WHSmith's reading the first chapter of Breaking Dawn since I have the hardback Eclipse and saw no point in buying it again, and people were looking at me like "wtf is she doing?" im cool.
