Ahh Twilight, the worldwide phenomenon that makes little girls and their moms wet their pants. But the question is WHY? Why does every female become obsessed with this? I will admit that I enjoyed the books but I cannot understand it.

Teenagers I understand, the books are pretty good and the actors are ok if you're 15. But I do not understand 40-50 year old women obsessing over these guys. Taylor Lautner is a child and I met a woman with a tattoo of him, she's 42. If she was a man obsessing over Taylor Swift it would be creepy and people would call him a predator. So why is it "cute" when a much older woman is wetting her pants over these guys?

I'm sorry I just don't get it, I love vampires, but I just don't think Twilight is the epitome of vamp stories. They are ok books but they aren't that good and I don't think that the movies are anything special. And this may get me stoned to death but I do not think Taylor and Robert are attractive. Taylor is a child and Rob is a sissy. Sorry ladies.

Ok thats my 2 cents on the matter.

I didn't think the books were that great (Not best-seller material IMO) and the first movie SUCKED. I haven't bothered to watch any of the other movies that came out.

I have to agree with you Eb. I love love love the books but the movies are decent at best. I saw them all and own them all so far New Moon is my fave of the movies. The directing was good and the storyline flowed better. I like movies where those are well done. Anyway the reason I enjoyed the book sso much at first was because how they were written. They just sucked you in then as I read Eclipse (My fave of the books, worst of the movies, it went by too fast and they solely focused on the fight scene) Anyway it got me thinking "There has to be love like this out there." and I wanted to find it. So I left my psycho abusive ex and went and looked for it. It does exist. I am not saying you don't still have to work for it but it does. Would I ever get a tattoo of any of the charactors? Heck no! I do want a tattoo of something of it to symbolize the strength it gave me but not of any of the characters. As far as the charators go I don't mind wearing a t-shirt with the whole group on it tho.
