So, I just finished all 4 and a half Twilight novels…

...and I just don’t get the team Edward vs. team Jacob thing!! Edward and Bella are in love… from the start. Jacob is always trying to get in the middle of that like a spoiled brat. So how can there even be teams??

  • I have always felt that way! In the movies, they really play up the love triangle thing, but in the books there really isn't a chance that Bella will ever be with Jacob. I have always thought it was silly.

  • I haven't read them, been thinking about it, but I see such mixed reviews. I know this is off topic, but do you recommend I bother?

  • LOL, I agree. But the team thing are the person the reader prefers. Not really the one Bella prefers..

  • I think that coming from my standpoint I really dislike Edward and love Jacob and really think that she would be better off with him'

  • Like a PP said, it has to do with the preference of the reader. I've always wondered what was so great about Edward.

  • gramsmom - I highly recommend you read the series.... it's really good!!!


    I just read her unfinished book from Edwards view - Midnight Sun. Once you read that you can't help but like Edward. I guess I just liked him because of his maturity, and I saw Jacob as an annoying little boy!! If you've read them all you can see she was really meant to be a vampire so she really wouldn't have been better off with the boy ;o)
