I read the Twilight books to figure out what the hell the world was talking about around the time the first movie came out.
"Vampires?" said I.
Then I finished the series because it's only 4 books and hell, I've read romance novel series that last for 12 books! I read the Harry Potter books in six weeks! I read Gone With the Wind when I was 12, dammit! (Wow, could I be a bigger geek?)
I liked Twilight well enough. It was entertaining, mildly amusing. I hated New Moon, was annoyed by Eclipse, and detested Breaking Dawn. Edward strikes me creepy. Jacob is...weird. And Bella! Do not get me started on that chick!
There's a new blog link in the sidebar to the left: Reasoning With Vampires. Hysterical. The blogger has taken apart each of the books and criticized the sentence structure, grammar, spelling, etc.
