I have to say, I really liked the illustrations in this book. Not so much Bella maybe, but Edward. The illustration was closer to how I pictured Edward while reading Twilight (the novel) than how he looked in the movie. I thought the dialog and some of the thought bubbles in this interpretation of the book were kind of awkward, but I know people who aren't thrilled about plowing through a 450 page book will appreciate the abbreviated version of the story. I will be looking forward to volume 2.
