My favourite section is the character profiles; every single character has a comprehensive description, image and famous quotes.

Stephenie Meyer graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in English literature, and she lives with her husband and three young sons in Arizona. After the publication of her debut novel, Twilight, booksellers chose her as one of the 'most promising new authors of 2005' (Publishers Weekly).
