Yes, I read Twilight. I wanted to be informed before dismissing it as teenage-girl boyfriend/girlfriend tripe masquerading as a vampire novel.

So, now that I’ve read it – it is indeed heavy on the tripe, light on the vampire. After reading Anne Rice, or Dracula, or anything else in that genre, this doesn’t really measure up.

After enduring about 80% of the book (according to the Kindle) there is a couple chapters of really good action, with something of a promise of character development that doesn’t quite develop, and then it goes back to the boyfriend/girlfriend tripe. Rather disappointing, and not promising enough that I’d consider reading the rest of the series.

But at least I’m no longer calling something rubbish that I haven’t read.
