So, I finished reading Twilight yesterday and I watched the movie today. Where to start? WRT the book - I liked it. I think once I got over the whole infatuation 'issue' and started seeing Bella and Edward more as soul mates, the whole situation worked far better for me.
As for the movie - I loved it, I really did! Edward definitely didn't seem as stalker-like, but that may have been because I could see his facial expressions. There was also far less redundancy - things moved a lot faster in the movie. And I find the Cullens very fascinating *grin* I'm not sure why...maybe because even though they are insular, once part of the family you belong. (Yes, I have thing about belonging, what can I say?) Oh, and Edward's face after Bella met his family - that look of 'OMG I can't believe my family just acted in that OTT embarrassing way' - had me in hysterics.
So, will I be reading the next book? Yes. I want to know what happens. It won't be for a while though...unless I ask one of the local librarians nicely *grin* Not to queue jump the hold list (because I would never do that) , but because one of them has offered to let me borrow the books...and considering I'm 955th on the hold list for New Moon I might take her up on her very kind offer so I can at least read the book before I go and see the movie ;) Because yes, I definitely want to go and see New Moon. I'll probably have to take myself - 'Nigel No-Mates' in the flesh - but...c'est la vie *grin*
