Twilight

I saw the movie, Twilight, yesterday and I liked it. I haven't read the book, which I think is crucial, so I came to it fresh with no expectations. I saw the flaws and I'm not here to speak about them. If I like a movie overall, I ignore the negatives.
I'm not a vampire story lover though I've read a few and I must say I liked Anita Blake's early books. But I loved the atmosphere in Twilight. I even enjoyed the long drawn out close ups of the characters' faces. I thought the vampire family were unique and fascinating, each one different from the other. The baseball game was such fun.
I will now read the book because I can imagine the depths and layers and subplots that will be in the book to flesh out the story.
I know this movie has many detractors but I am not one of them. Go and see it and let me know what you think.

Thanks for your impression of the movie.
I'll be interested in what you think about the book.

Well, Raine, it's one of those books that broke out big time, so it will certainly be interesting to see what it has that others don't.

Heather, let me know if you enjoyed the movie after reading the book. I don't know if that always works.

One of my sisters is handing off the book (when it's returned to her). I figure the movie will be on video by the time I see it! But I'll let you know...

Suzanne, great post and image. I'm not into vampires much either. No wonder we are kindred spirits. :D Although when I was a kid I loooved the TV show, Dark Shadows, and have found some books based on that in a used bookstore.

Hugs, Nancy

Nancy, I've never heard of Dark Shadows. It probably never got to New Zealand. We don't have many TV channels here and when I was a kid, there was only one, then two and then three not long ago. We now have five that I can get plus a Maori Channel.
