It is also the location of a series of murders committed by newborn vampires in Eclipse. The Twilight series falls under the genre of young adultfantasyand romancethough Meyer categorized her first book, Twilightas "suspense romance horror comedy".
The books are written in first-person narrativeprimarily through Bella's eyes with the epilogue of the third book and a part of the fourth book being from Jacob's point of view. When asked about the structure of the novel, Meyer described her difficulty in pinpointing the premise of the novels to any specific their category:. I have a hard time with that. Because if I say to someone, 'You know, it's about vampires,' then immediately they have this mental image of what the book is like.
And it's so not like the other vampire books out there— Anne Rice 's and the few that I've read. It isn't that kind of dark and dreary and blood-thirsty world. Then when you say, 'It's set in high school,' a lot of people immediately put it in another pool.
Midnight Sun Chapters 1-12
It's easy to pigeonhole with different descriptions. The books are based on the vampire myth, but Twilight vampires differ in a number of particulars from the general vampire lore. For instance, Twilight vampires have strong piercing teeth rather than fangs; they glitter in sunlight rather than burn; and they can drink animal as well as human blood. Meyer comments that her vampire mythology differs from that of other authors because she wasn't informed about the canon vampires, saying.
It wasn't until I knew that Twilight would be published that I began to think about whether my vampires were too much the same or too much different from the others. Of course, I was far too invested in my characters at that point to be making changes According to the author, her books are "about life, not death" and "love, not lust". Montgomery 's Anne of Green Gables series are a big influence on her writing. Other major themes of the series include choice and free will. It doesn't matter where you're stuck in life or what you think you have to do; you can always choose something else.
There's always a different path. Meyer, a Mormonacknowledges that her faith has influenced her work. In particular, she says that her characters "tend to think more about where they came from, and where they are going, than might be typical. Meyer says that she does not consciously intend her novels to be Mormon-influenced, or to promote the virtues of sexual abstinence and spiritual purity, but admits that her writing is shaped by her values, saying, "I don't think my books are going to be really graphic or dark, because of who I am.
There's always going to be a lot of light in my stories. Stephenie Meyer says that the idea for Twilight came to her in a dream on June 2, The dream was about a human girl, and a vampire who was in love with her but thirsted for her blood.
Based on this dream, Meyer wrote the transcript of what is now chapter 13 of the book. Following the success of TwilightMeyer expanded the story into a series with three more books: New MoonEclipseand Breaking Dawn In its first week after publication, the first sequel, New Moondebuted at 5 on the New York Times Best Seller List for Children's Chapter Books, and in its second week rose to the 1 position, where it remained for the next eleven weeks. In total, it spent over 50 weeks on the list.
Meyer originally planned to write a companion book to Twilight called Midnight Sunwhich would be the story of Twilight told from Edward Cullen 's point-of-view. She stated that Twilight was the only book that she planned to rewrite from Edward's perspective.
Meyer has since put these twelve chapters on her website so that her fans could read them for free,  but has put the project on hold indefinitely due to her feelings about the situation. She stated. If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sunand so it is on hold indefinitely.
Though she has no current plans to do so, Meyer has also stated that if she were to continue writing in the same universe she would write from the perspective of either Leah Clearwater or Bella and Edward's daughter, Renesmee Cullen. On March 30,Meyer revealed on her official website that she will be releasing a new novella in the series, The Short Second Life of Bree Tannerwhich tells the story of a newborn vampire who appeared in Eclipseon June 5, On October 5,Little, Brown and Company announced that The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guidea definitive encyclopedic reference for the saga including character profiles, outtakes, a conversation with Meyer, genealogical charts, maps and extensive cross-references with nearly full color illustrations, was to be released on April 12,after many publication delays since The reimagined novel has a more conclusive ending, seemingly precluding its continuation through the remaining three Twilight novels.
The response to Twilight has been mixed. While the books have become immensely popular, they have also generated much controversy. Twilight has gathered acclaim for its popularity with its target readers.

The Times lauded it for capturing "perfectly the teenage feeling of sexual tension and alienation. People do not want to just read Meyer's books; they want to climb inside them and live there There's no literary term for the quality Twilight and Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings share, but you know it when you see it: their worlds have a freestanding internal integrity that makes you feel as if you should be able to buy real estate there.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer called the book a "hot new teen novel",  Entertainment Weekly called Meyer "the world's most popular vampire novelist since Anne Rice",  The New York Times described Twilight as a "literary phenomenon",  and Matt Arado of Daily Herald noted that the Twilight books have become the "hottest publishing phenomenon since a certain bespectacled wizard cast his spell on the world.

Rowling; that's a phenomenon that's not gonna happen again", however noting that "you can compare my fans to her fans more easily [than me to her]. I do think that we both have people who are just really really enthusiastic, and will come miles to see you and be involved, and everybody really cares about our characters. Economically, the town of Forks, Washingtonthe setting for the Twilight series, has improved due to tourism from fans of the books.
The series has garnered some notoriety both over its literary substance and over the type of relationship portrayed in the books.
Many have derided the series as poor writing. While comparing Stephenie Meyer to J. RowlingStephen King said, "the real difference [between Rowling and Meyer] is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer, and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good. It's exciting and it's thrilling and it's not particularly threatening because it's not overtly sexual.
