I can't wait for the movie either. i hope it stays true to the book. I didn't think Pattison was a good choice for Edward. I'm still trying to get my friends into reading it but they are so reluctant.

Re: Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer

Yeah, I wasn't overly impressed with the trailer either. It looked like something that might have meaning to people who have read the books, but it just looked like a dude leaping through trees to me...no real resonance because I don't know what it is all about.
 
I have a question for the fans, though - what makes this series so good? There have been other teen vampire romance novels before this, what is it about Meyers' books that pops out and makes them superior to the others? Is her writing style better? Are the stories innovative? Just curious. This is the emergent trend in vampire fiction and I like to keep up with this stuff.

Didn't get the preview from youtube. I watched the one the studio released, and not the teaser either. It was terrible; bad acting, hooky, vague, and cliched.

Derek,

I think one characteristic that sets these books apart is that the author captures and treats with respect the intensity of emotion often experienced by older teenagers and those slightly older. Meyer manages to pull this off convincingly -- not going over the top OR belittling the emotions. The characterizations are also quite well done, I think. The wide appeal of the series is very interesting to me. I have gotten several of my older students at my all-male military boarding school reading them.

Meyer does also add a few interesting approaches to the vampire mythos, as well. For example, her vampires glitter like jewels in the sun.

I have enjoyed the books immensely, though I have a slight problem with something that occurred in the third installment. I am hoping this will be resolved in the final book.

Re: Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer

There are so many things that make this book unique.
1st- the new take on vampires (no fangs, glitter, superhero abilities and beyond)
2nd- You do relate or want to relate to her characters and can not help but love the intensity and the "old school" ways of edward.
3rd- Great dialogue - witty, sarcastic, hopeless cheesy.
4th- She packs in so much with action, romance, and paranormal in the plot that it pulls

She basically wrote a modern romeo and juliet- with vampires.
I heart Edward Cullen.
