Spoiler Warning: These book club discussion questions on Twilight by Stephenie Meyer reveal important details about the book. Finish Twilight before reading on.
- What is the significance of the title: Twilight?
- Can you identify with Bella's thoughts and actions throughout the book? Why or why not?
- Edward is ferociously attracted to Bella by her smell. That may make his love unconditional (because she can't change the smell of her blood), but does it make it less admirable since it's not based on character?
- Is Rosalie's dislike of Bella justified? Why or why not?
- Do you think Carlisle did the right thing changing Edward into a vampire, or was it selfish? Does Edward show any signs of resentment toward Carlisle for what he did? Explain.
- Would it appeal to you to live forever? Why or why not?
- Do you think Billy's unsolicited warnings to Bella are entirely well-intentioned, or might there be something sinister going on?
- Edward really is unlike any human guy – even his breath is intoxicating! What do you make of the criticism that Twilight gives young female readers unrealistic expectations of men?
- The author makes clear that vampires have to be very attractive to their prey, but do you think Edward is too perfect? Why or why not?
