[ ]He stepped back, and began to circle, casually, as if he were trying to get a better view of a statue in a museum. His face was still open and friendly as he decided to start.[ ]
He was in front of me in a flash. I didn't see if he used his hand or foot, it was too fast. A crushing blow struck my chest— I felt myself flying backward, and then heard the crunch as my head bashed into the mirrors.[ ]
Let it be quick now, was all I could hope. My eyes were closing.
I heard, as if from underwater, the final growl of he hunter. I could see, through the long tunnels my eyes become, hid dark shape coming toward me. With my last effort, my hand instinctively raised to protect my face. My eyes closed, and I drifted.
Stephenie Meyer describes the details of every scene very exact, throughout Bella's narrative style. Therefore the reader can identify himself with the protagonists.
Everything seems to be realistic. In the first 250 Pages Bella tells about her “normal” teenage life. She has problems like every teenager has. I like the mixture of vampire-fantasy and realistic lifestyle.
The Author achieves her purpose. The reader will be taken in Bella's word. It is absolutely fascinating to be a part of the story. Stephenie Meyer's easy writing and the rich use of adjectives in the sentences submit feelings strong. The reader “feels” with the protagonists.
