Ok,so I finished reading Twilight on Friday,in my highfevered state.I liked it.It was good.But I have to say,not Harry Potter good.Harry Potter was supposed to be a kids book series,but ended up being one of my all-time favorites.Even though Twilight was good and I would want to read all the other books in the series,just to see how things play out,it wasn't the be all and end all of books for me.
That being said,the book was DEFINITELY MUCH BETTER than the movie.We watched it on Saturday,and I thought immediately that maybe I should've watched the movie first,because they left out so much stuff from the book to do the movie,and although I understand that there are time constraints,they added things to the movie that weren't in the book,so why did they leave out the actual things then?The script for the movie was really choppy and strangely put together,and they really jumped from one thing to the next without any real explanation.The movie,to me,is like a basic summary of the book,and you really should read the book,otherwise the characters and what they are like really aren't explained to you very well in the movie at all.
PS.Yes,I do find Rob Pattinson a lot more attractive now,but only in the movie.In real life he still comes across as very dirty and not all that appealing.But as Edward?Yeah,he can come bite me if he wants to.
PPS.Kristen Stewarts' portrayal of Bella is really awkward,as she basically only pulls her face into expressions that I associate with constipation.Watch the movie again,and tell me she doesn't look totally constipated the whole time!Go on,I dare you!
PPS.It took me a while to realise Rosalie is actually played by that chick from Thirteen.In the book,she's described as the perfect specimen of a woman.Uhm,no offense,but I'm pretty sure there were much prettier girls to use for that part.
I'm sorry if I offended any Twilight fans,but really,they could've done a better job bringing the book to life.I'm really interested to see how they improve with New Moon.
