I had no desire to read this series or even watch the movie. The movie showed up through Netflix (my husband requested it), so I reluctantly watched it. After that, I had to read the books. I loved Twilight.The way it is written pulls the reader in and makes them feel like they are there in the story, right there in the location even. Maybe it helped a bit seeing the movie first because the characters' faces and the locations were already ingrained in my head, allowing me to focus solely on the emotions. Whatever it was, this book (and the others in the series) made me feel more emotion than I remember feeling before. I've already read parts of this one again while reading the other three, and there's no doubt that I will read this one again.
