So I've decided to help you out. I'm going to read Twilight, so you don't have to. I'll provide a complete synopsis -- not a review, although I may editorialize now and then -- right here in my blog, a couple chapters at a time, as fast as I can
Here's a synopsis of the Preface and Chapter 1 of Twilight by Stephenie [sic] Meyer.
Bella's gonna die, but that's OK because she's in love or something. Except she's not really gonna die, because she's telling the story in the first person past tense, which she couldn't do if she were dead. And there are three sequels anyway. But I'll pretend I don't know that, so it'll be suspenseful.
Chapter 1. First Sight
Bella complains about not being able to live with her mom anymore. She complains about moving to a small town. She complains about the weather. She complains about not fitting in. She complains about how she looks. She complains about the weather some more. She complains about having to live with her dad. She complains because her truck is so noisy. She complains about the way her new high school looks. I begin to sense a pattern.
Bella goes to school. She complains because a nerdy boy is nice to her. A teacher makes her blush. Another teacher makes her blush. She starts to make friends at school. She sees some Beautiful Vampires, but she doesn't know what they are yet. I do, though, since I know this is a book about Beautiful Vampires. I have a hard time deciding if this qualifies as dramatic irony, because although I know something Bella doesn't, the knowledge is not supplied by the text. One of the Beautiful Vampires looks at Bella and makes her blush. His name is Edward. He has bronze-colored hair.
Bella has to sit by Edward in biology because the only empty seat is next to him. He looks like he's mad at her. Bella blushes again. I begin to wonder whether she's easily embarrassed or prematurely menopausal. Edward has black eyes. Not like punched-in-the-face black eyes, black irises. And bronze hair. He acts like he hates Bella.
A not-nerdy boy talks to Bella. She doesn't complain about that. She does complain because she has to take PE.
Edward has bronze hair, and he hates Bella.
