Totally Hooked & Not Ashamed!,
This review is from: Breaking Dawn: Twilight, Book 4: 4/4 (Twilight Saga) (Paperback)
Firstly I have to say I really do not see what age has to do with anything. If you still enjoy reading fairy tales at 50 so what, if you like it, it doesn't affect anyone else, what does it matter? But for the record I am 38 Years Old, Totally hooked and not ashamed!
I, like so many others was not particularly bothered when Twilight first came out having disregarded it as a silly teen flick, but then I actually saw it and was completely hooked on what turned out to be a tender love story.
I immediately bought the first three books and read them without so much as a days break. I have always loved vampire and horror movies having secretly stayed up late as a kid watching Hammer House of Horrors and the like with Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. The books are a joy to read and so much more fulfilling than watching a film, though having said that I am itching to see the last two installments. When reading the books you can visualise the characters from the films, one wonders how I would have visualised them if I hadn't have seen twilight first. I doubt I would have conjured the moody,sultry and seductive looks that is R-Patz. This is the bit I am ashamed of, I have a crush on a boy who is young enough to be my son!
I think Meyers writes very well with thought provoking descriptions. My only gripe (though a very small one) is that Edward keeps calling Bella "love", coming from south east london originally I keep hearing this in the tone of a barrow boy when reading, which is somewhat off putting. I am half way through Breaking Dawn, reading Jacobs story and am trying but failing miserably to drag it out. The thought of having to wait until November 2011 for the first part and November 2012 for the final part is verging on painful to say the least. I can imagine that I will read all 4 books over again between now and 2012 just to keep it fresh. Looking forward to reading the Host also but I doubt it will come close to the brilliance that is the TWILIGHT Saga!

I love that you also had a gripe with him calling Bella 'love'. I'm from the South Wales valleys, and had the same sort of problem as you. Everytime he said 'love' it made me cringe. I had to resort to just skimming over the word in the end and pretending he didn't say it. haha.
