Twilight


I do not understand this obsession over these books!  I read the first book in the series and while I didn't hate it, it gave me no desire to read the rest. 

Some people are absolutely fanatical about it! (I fear that I may be referring to some of you blog readers) I saw the movie with my sisters and I thought the casting was all wrong! I'm not hating on you Twilight freaks (lovers? what do you prefer?), it just didn't strike me the same. I'm sure some of you don't like Harry Potter (which I totally don't get, Harry is amazing!)

I swear I'm not a freak! I liked to read the books, although it's not the best I've ever read. I do agree with you about the movie. Casting was all wrong. Acting wasn't the best.

My opinion, cuz I know you're dying to hear it (j/k):
First book, disappointing because of all the hype, but ok.
Second book, not very good till just before the end, and then its anti climactic.
Third book. I actually really loved it.
Fourth book. Great until the end, and then its the most anti-climactic ending I have ever read.
Movie: The only word that comes to mind is Embarrassing. Well, that and low-budget. However, I will see all the rest, its true.

I haven't read them so I have no comment. (but I'm leaving a comment so...whatever.)

I totally agree with you Rachel! I am not reading those darn books for that reason. The movie was ok. I especially enjoyed the part where Bella is riding on Edwards back. Really? What the heck was that?

Kati said...

I'm right with you! Down to the reading the first one and while it was alright, I didn't have any desire to read the rest. But I'm a super outcast because I've also never read or watched any of the Harry Potters. I hope we can still be friends after that confession! :-) I just don't understand fantasy...
