So I finished Twilight a few days ago. Honestly, I really didn't enjoy it. It took almost 400 pages for it to get interesting. There is only so many times I could read about Edward being dangerous or so beautiful. And really, the guy's stalking Bella! He waits for her after class, watches her while she sleeps, and waits outside her house to pick her up in the morning. He snaps at her frequently and gets easily jealous. Not a healthy relationship by any standard. I can understand the appeal for teens - a dark, dangerous and handsome young man falling for the modest, intelligent, new girl in town.
I'm hoping The Host is better. In the meantime, I'll be reading A Thousand Splendid Suns first. I need some more depth.
