Who says "sure, sure"?

Jacob. That's like his line.

Thanks! I'm only starting my second reading now, so I don't have all the facts clearly in my mind.

^^^you're welcome :D

It's understandable if you're only on your second round. Unlike me who has read the whole saga 6 times. 8-)

I am a little confused about how some people say SM can't stick with the plot. Can anyone explain. I don't know all the criticism out there b/c usually just don't care either way since I love this series, but that comment a couple of pages back re: the plot made me curious what plot others are talking about. Now back to the topic of this thread. There has only been a few adults that asked why I like this book so much since it is geared to young adults. My answer is this. I have read a ton of adult books and and if it is a romance book it usually lacks building up the relationship between the characters boy meets girl they stay together the end. Then to try to make it romantic they throw in there some sexual content. The adult content usually is written really cheesy that makes me laugh and not take the story seriously. However when SM can wrote the Twilight Saga you could feel the passion and love that sends chills down your spine. I could feel so much emotion for E&B that I can't say I ever had felt in another book. SM did DELIVER that without feeling the need to add adult content to get her point of the intense relationships that build up this saga. That impressed me.

I just tend to ignore them, because clearly they have no imagination or life :D

I agree that it is a great escape. It is too bad that people have to ruin it for us!!! I too have friends who think I'm crazy and it really hurts my feelings when it is a close friend. Don't they know me well enough to know that this makes some sort of sense?

I have been made fun for liking the series, probably more for being a guy, than that person's opinion of the quality of the series. My guy friend's did give me a bit of a hard time when I told them I liked the series. But they don't do it often, mostly because they know I'm capable of hurting them. A benefit of being bigger and stronger than them. :D

They made snap judgments of the series based on it's popularity and craziness. I'm able to defend my love of the series, and they respect that, but they are set in their opinion of it. For me, I get lost in the books and movies. It's been a while since something has affected me so. They don't get that. I've had a more positive experience with my girl friends. I think most of them are fans of the series. But even ones that aren't, haven't given me grief about it.

I haven't been called gay yet. But I really don't share my feelings about the series with complete strangers. Well, people IRL.
