I have read all 4 of the books in the Twilight arc and this, the first book, is pretty bad. It's very obviously written by a first-time author who is far too reliant on adjectives and pretty descriptions than on having an actual plot. Thankfully, the other 3 books are better. Unfortunately, if you want to read the whole lot, you should read this, if only for the (minimal) back story.
