Twilight Quotes: What makes the Twilight series Click?

There is no doubt denying it. Twilight fever has gripped us all. Arguably, the biggest thing in the literary world since the Harry Potter series, the Twilight New Moon Eclipse has become the latest craze for readers. Quotes from the four books of the series are everywhere – T shirts, mugs, key chains and where not?

 

The other day, I was suggested this Stephenie Meyer novel by a close friend. I was hesitant at first. I hate it when I find my intelligence being taken for a ride by smart marketing strategies. Looking back however, I am glad that I picked it up. In no time I got hooked to the book. I felt that the attention the Twilight series is receiving is justified. The author has successfully built up an unnatural atmosphere very convincingly, just like Rowling did in the Harry Potter series. The writing is simple and easily pulls you into a world that is far ours, but irresistible nonetheless. There is innocence, drama, suspense and above all…romance.

 

What has seemingly worked best for the series is its young romance. For a long time, modern readers have been denied a good love story. The love between the 17 year old human Bella and the young vampire Edward has brought back old-world romance into our lives. As Edward once says,

 

“Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars-points of light and reason… And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty.”

 

Think of it, would the series have been such a hit without the splendid Edward-Bella romance? The old Gothic horror genre has been repackaged and served with dollops of romance. The phrases from the four books – Twilight, New Moon, Breaking Dawn and Eclipse – are everywhere. Go through some of the most popular romantic quotes from the Twilight series:

 

“…as you were sleeping you said my name.”

 

“You said you loved me.”

 

“Having you know about everything, not needing … more than that. I like it. It makes me…happy.”

 

“I love you… will always love you, no matter what happens now.”

 

“I will stay with you – isn’t that enough?”
