I don't get as worked up as most other teenage girls seem to. Most seem to either love it or hate it. For me it's a 'meh'.
i think i agree with you, the only reason i appear quite anti was because i had so many obsessed people around me :P

I, too, enjoyed the series, plot holes and all. But, I've always considered the entertainment value more important to me than anything else, and I was entertained. I also found the humor enjoyable.

I've been avoiding that whole scenario... the only Twilight title I found enjoyable was a PC game early 90's based off an RPG Twilight 2000. I enjoyed the writing style of Bram Stoker's Dracula, and read Kim Newman's Anno-dracula... I liked the inclusion of nearly all the Victorian era names, but haven't read any more of his works. Rice was an interesting diversion, but never really been a fan of vampires as a topic.

I have read all the books and own the first two of the movies. Somedays you simply need to escape. Books are light reading and the movies have good back ground music. That is to say put a movie in and start in on the dishes, dusting, folding laundry, what ever and you have not lost the storyline when you take a coffee break. Teenage grandchildren now have something to talk or argue about with their Grandmother (i.e. Camp Edward or Camp Jacob) I find I am a referee most of the time.

I started reading these books about a week and a half ago, and have watch each of the movies at the end of each book...yesterday was the end of the last book today was the last of the movies. I did enjoy them pretty much all the way through...a few slow spots in the third book...but mostly they were fairly entertaining.

I go along with what Bats said above...I think I belonged in the *Camp Jacob* group...he was a reall cutie.

I also go along with Digger...I got started on these because of my teenage Grand-daughters, and now I have something interesting [for them at least]to chat about...and keep up to date with. Seems my girls are all going to take me to see the last chapter of the movies, in about a month...that should be a wonderful day spent together, no matter what we're watching!!!
