This is one of the few times that I will have posted a response without looking over the rest of the thread.
Clearly, Twilight was wonderful, but I could never help, but get the feeling of: Teenage Anne Rice much!?
Twilight has it's nice points, but honestly... I put the book down and went back to reading "The Vampire Armand."
I've had this conversation with my ex and his new girlfriend. She hated me for saying, "Twilight is ." Without understanding the fact that I am a pure Anne Rice, Christine Feehan, and Darren Shan fan. The only thing I found AT ALL creative is that Vampires don't go in the sun because their skin looks like "Diamonds." That was something that made me squirm going, "I don't know whether to hate it or to like it?"
That's my input.
