Guest Post--Nelson's review of Twilight
First--I am going to get so much flack about this from the guys at church...
I liked it. It was romantic and suspenseful. I like to read things that my students find popular. I have several, including a few boys, who now are reading the series and a couple who went to the opening night theater show.
The author did a good job developing likable characters and a realistic plot--aside from the vampire thing. I was surprised that there were several vampire characters that were noble and enjoyable to read about. She ended it well too: I wasn't sure quite what was going to happen. It left unanswered questions, but still provided a satisfying resolution. I do wonder, however, if girls really think and dream as much about relationships as the book suggests...
I would recommend this book to my students and women I know, though not necessarily to some of my friends with season tickets to ball games.
(Many thanks to our guest poster, Nelson, for his insightful review and willingness to share on this blog.) :-D
