Did you ever think about reading these books, but then thought:
"I don't really have the time/attention span/proper sort of pre-teen hormonal fascination with vampires"?
Now you can see what happens without taking an entire weekend of your life to wade through
approx. 4000 pages of descriptions on how pretty Edward is!
Not to step on any Twilight fan's indestructible vampiric toes. I did actually very much enjoy my weekend in Forks.
(as evidenced by my reading the entire series in a weekend)
It's just SO FUN to fun on it.
PS: I have NOT seen the movie yet. I will hit that up movie-rental-store style tewt sweeet.
Because I am the only person on earth who doesn't have freakin' Netflix.

THIS IS 100% TRUE
OHMIGOD. You are hilarious. That's exactly what happened to me only I bought the first book from Border's, returned it the next day, walked down the street to B&N and bought the second. Returned it next day, back to Border's. Repeated till I finished them all. I had NEVER read a single vampire book in my life. I hardly read fantasy at all, just Tolkien, (of course) and LeGuin, mostly hard SciFi like Heinlein and Asimov. It's total crap and must have some subliminal messages in it to keep me reading it. It's crazy.
The Mormon stuff gets more and more intense the farther you go until I was about to puke at the end. God I'm glad that's over.
