Twilight

I went to see Twilight over the weekend. I had not realised that during my stay overseas the movie prices had escalated to R45 a ticket. Besides the obvious changes from the book, I didn't quite realise that the movie was aimed at a younger market, namely the type that require less wit and flowing dialogue. I was sadly disappointed. I can only hope that the sequel will include better dialogue and maybe a more rounded explanation of each characters unique skill, something they just left out.

Hey Hayley. Did you read the books? They are basically girl porn. I'm currently on book 3 and can't understand how I got here. A

I read 1 and 2, I agree totally. I normally enjoy supernatural books/movies. It was rather disappointing.

I have a friend Melanie in Oxford who practically forced me to read the first one. I'm not sure why I liked it. Perhaps because I had quite a lot of free time on my hands and they were easy to read. Since things got a little more busy I've put reading book 3 on hold.
