I've heard about the series on tv. But I wasn't really interested in the story. Then my little sister (she's 13) kept telling me again and again and again how great the books are.
So I decided to buy Twilight out of the reason that I wanted to tell her: "You're hyperbolizing the books, they are not that great."
And then...well, then I started to read Twilight, and I continued reading and after the first 50 pages I was addicted. I read the first book within one day, I really couldn't stop. The next day, I bought the second, another day later the third and finally 4 days after buying Twilight I bought breaking dawn.
My husband wasn't thrilled that I spend about 100 Euro for books within one week
That was a few weeks ago and now I'm nearly through the books for the third time.
I new that the books were about Vampires. Here in Germany the titles are not translated in the way I would have done it, so you can see, that the books could contain something about Vampires.
Let me explain. The German titles are some kind of a pun.
The titles are:
zum Morgengrauen" (Until dawn) - Twilight
zur Mittagsstunde" (until noon) - New Moon
zum Abendrot (Until sunset) - Eclipse
zum Ende der Nacht (Until the end of the Night)- Breaking Dawn
Biss means bite in English but the second s is written italic, cause "bis" means "until" in English.
And everyone knows, that vampires bite, so you can see it in the titles. But I'm not very happy with the translation.
