I got that for Christmas as a gag gift. I'm not kidding.

I recycled it at the airport on my way home.

Not falling in love with either, actually. Bella is even more melodramatic than she was in the movies and Edward is...just Edward. They were actually pretty faithful with him in the films.

YES!!! i agree....and with BELLA also....pretty darn faithful...SO...you saw the film (s) too???...aren't you brave

IMO...."TWILIGHT" is THE most romantic of the 4 books young love...the purist sweetest and the one with the MOST angst!!!

I saw the first Twilight at my sister's insistence. I actually enjoyed that one. I happened to walk into the room as my then-roommates started New Moon and hated it. But by then, I wanted to see how the story played out, so I've watched the other two.

Breaking Dawn Part 1 was a great example of a film that should NOT have been split into two films. The first hour could've been shown in 20 minutes. However, I'll admit the last 30-45 minutes were pretty cool.

Let's see... In the last month I've read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, didn't really care for either of them, although book two was better than the first. I've also read Dragon Haven (Rain Wilds Chronicles, book two) by Robin Hobb& all three books of the Liveship Traders trilogy, also by Robin Hobb. And I've read The Black Prism by Brent Weeks, The Dirty Parts of the Bible by Sam Torode, & A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.

9 books. I need to slow down a little. It's getting expensive, even with a Kindle.

I strongly considered reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo...but since I'm gonna see the movie fairly soon (I hope) I thought I'd skip it for now.

A Confederacy of Dunces is great!

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was the most annoying book I've read in many years. I don't even know why I finished it.

The story is much better in movie form, IMO. The Swedish versions, which are on Netflix, are quite good.

Yeah I watched those recently, very entertaining.

Never read the books and never plan too.

I'm currently reading Tune In Tokyo: The Gaijin Diaries, a guy's memoir from when he decided to stir up his hum-drum life by moving to tokyo and teaching English. It's a lot of fun. The guy's got a good dry wit, and the inner monologue of the tale is terrific.

OH TGWTDT is SO great!!!...sorry haven't read the book but the ORIGINAL subtitled film is great!!!

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 18, 2012 12:47:40 PM PST
OH COOL.....i couldn't bring myself to watch the second film (NEW MOON) for quite a while after it was released.....cuz it was just too tragic...i wept while reading the book and i just couldn't bear it...and once i finally did see it...i was right!!!...it was heart wrenching...

Evidently the original manuscript was nigh unreadable and the editors had to take some very heavy liberties with it to make it work.

That sounds cool, I might check this book out. I love stories about people who do stuff like that, probably because I'm too chicken**** to do it myself.

Ugh. I felt much the same way. The only reason I finished it was because I didn't want it to be a wasted purchase. And I only read the second one because I had purchased both cheaply for my Kindle. I really struggled to get through it.

Book 2 was admittedly better, but I'm certainly not going to be picking up book 3 unless I can get it super cheap too. I am mildly interested in finishing the trilogy, but not for more than $4 or so. Confederacy of Dunces is probably one of the best books I've read in a great long while.

I also read Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn Trilogy before Thanksgiving, as well as the Hunger Games trilogy. Both were very good.

I hope he writes more stuff. He's got a good voice and his POV his hilarious.

It was a good book, but they're making a movie? I just can't see that working very well with the multiple POV's from the book...

It'd work great as a movie, look at Crash. Instead of being the interviewer, Brad Pitt decided the movie would be better with him just wandering around killing zombies. Basically ignoring the entire book.
