Teen angst, young love, vampire boyfriend, disapproving family members, you name it, it's all in this book.

The much heralded vampire series by Stephanie Meyers is supposed to be the new Harry Potter, the books that made the young people of the world want to read. I know everyone is gaga over this series and, while it is an easy read, I don't understand the hype. Am I too jaded? Am I spoiled by my love of Harry and his adventures? There just doesn't seem to be enough of what I want to read in Twilight.

Bella moves to Forks, Washington, and falls in love with Edward. Edward just happens to be part of a vampire coven that doesn't attack people. Edward and Bella fall in love and Edward's family has to rescue Bella from a bad vampire. That's about it, what am I missing?
