I enjoyed the series. I couldn’t put them down. I read all 4 books in 5 or 6 days.
I could relate with Bella in a lot of ways so it was easy to get wrapped up in the books. And Edward - how can anyone not adore him?
Everything worked out perfectly in the end. They’re all happy, they all get along, have the perfect guy/girl for them, etc. Bella even keeps her relationship with her father. It was somewhat annoying but I don’t think I would’ve liked it if things didn’t work out the way they were written.
I’m also anxious to see the Twilight movie but I know it wont be nearly as good as the book. I’ve imagined all of the people and places that were described… I just don’t think the movie will live up to my vivid imagination. I wasn’t expecting someone like Robert Pattinson to play Edward… but then who would? Edward is so often described as god-like, gorgeous, etc. There’s no actor that could portray the perfect Edward I’ve imagined. However - Robert is growing on me… a little.
Has anyone else read Midnight Sun? (partially available on Stephanie Meyer’s website) - I enjoyed Edward’s perspective so much more than Bella’s. He’s more realistic - not just the perfect god-man Bella lusts after. I enjoyed reading about his day to day life, his emotions, struggles, etc. I loved that he started to compose music again once Bella came along too. I just hope Stephanie Meyer will finish Midnight Sun some day.
I adore Edward.
