The purpose I am writing this letter is to inform you that I have just finished reading a book which I stumbled on at a bookstore not long ago, Entitled ‘Twilight’ and is written by a famous novelist, Stephenie Meyer who is also known to write the adult sci-fi novel called ‘The Host’. Twilight is only 544 pages long and I strongly recommend for you to get a copy. It is a good book for you to read to kill time as it will be school holidays soon. The price of a paperback is not expensive and you do not have to fork out too much money on buying it.
I would like to take this opportunity to share with you the gist of the book and I hope that you don’t mind. However, I would not tell you how it ends. I’ll leave that part out for you to enjoy figuring it out for yourself. I am sure you would be wondering and eager to finish the book after you have started on it. I’ll keep the suspense part for you. So, here goes.
This book revolves around an ordinary 17-year-old girl named Isabella Swan from Phoenix, Arizona who opted to live with her father in Forks, a small town in Washington so that her mother, Renée could live with her new husband in Florida. Forks was the place where Bella, the name she preferred and insisted for people to call her with, spent summer holidays when she was little. She was just an average girl in Phoenix and she intended to be the same in Forks. On the contrary, almost everybody was expecting her return and somehow knew her name. Much to her dismay, several boys in school, namely Mike Newton, Eric Yorkie and Tyler, compete for shy Bella’s attention. When she sat next to Edward Cullen in class on her first day of school, he seemed to be utterly repulsed by her. It puzzled her more when she discovered that Edward even tried to change his schedules because of her. She wondered and was very confused to realize that a person could hate her that quickly before even getting to know each other first.
