Twilight Fanatics

So a bunch of you have read Twighlight and I’m just curious, why do you love it?

I’ve been asked to read it so I figured I’ll give it a try when the audiobook comes in. I don’t tend to like fantasy or sci-fi so I kind of figured this wasn’t going to be my thing and I’m also very critical of writing in books, movies and television. I don’t know much about it though, except it’s become a phenomenon.

I’ve been wrong before though and will give something a shot, what can it hurt?

So I’m just curious and Gemini I am not asking you because we’ve discussed it enough and I want other thoughts.

    I don’t know if I can explain it Robin. Really….it’s just captivating writing and a story that sucks you in. I am half way through the second book now, expect to finish it and the third one this weekend on our trip.

    I would also recommend her book The Host. AWESOME. Not vampire related.

    I’m not usually a fan of fantasty or scifi or whatever, but this is more of a love story than anything, I would saw. It’s super romantic and endearing.

    The books are very well written, in my opinion. But, I just love to read. I don’t have a specific type of book I love most. The first one was really good. I wasn’t as excited about the second. I’m waiting for the third to arrive in the mail.

    They’re not as fantasy like as Harry Potter. And they’re from the teenage girl’s point of view (Bella). You may like them if you like romance at all.

    Bella is a very compelling protagonist. She reminded me a lot of Winona Ryder’s character in Beetlejuice combined with her character in Heathers.
