My kids have been listening to the audio books since they were very small and Jim Dale is an awesome reader! I don’t think you will be able to stop listening once you start. That could be your next book challenge after finishing The Host 🙂

And I am excited to see Rob as Edward TODAY!

Both my niece and nephew are big fans of the books. I am an avid reader and huge fan of Harry Potter. They both tried to talk me into reading the books, but I’m not really into the whole “vampire” thing. About a month or so ago, I saw the teaser trailer for the movie. Well that did it. It really spiked my interest. It has everything a good movie needs, a love story, action, suspense, and intrigue. It looked so good that I decided to cave in and read the books. Well, I’m hooked. I LOVE the books so much I’ve read them all 4 times already. I’ve started listening to podcasts, keeping up with the news etc…
This movie is going to get to people of all ages(I’m 32) and they will become fans. Some will go on to read the books, others will just follow the movies. This fandom base is just taking off.

If it turns out to be not that great(which it better not) then I will be
very disappointed.
After all of course the movie is never gonna be better then
the book. They never are.

I know I am going to go see it a few times, to give Stephenie and Catherine the credit they deserve. I love the fact that they did not choose this HUGE actors/actresses…Makes it better. They made such great choices in the casting. I am SO SO SO excited to see this.
I LOVE the podcast I think you guys are so GREAT!!!!
Much love,
Krissa

But judging from the trailer, it doesn’t look like it. In some way, Hollywood steps in and puts in their own version to make it more exciting. Yeah it makes the movie more suspenseful but following the book is just as good! hopefully it will be the best movie ever and get a lot of good review because Stephanie Meyer deserves it for writing such amazing books!

Hopefully its not to late to comment..
I am sure that the movie will die mid flight.
After seeing trailer no. 3, I can’t stop worring on whether it will be well acted or not. Rob and Kris are great. really. but for such a deep and powerful movie they lack the seriousness. its not another holywood clechee. IT IS TWILIGHT. plus their kiss is way to violent ! hehehehehe 🙂
love you guys lottss

This is precisely what makes me concerned about how GOOD it will be – whether it will weave the story well, or whether it will pander to the teen scene. The second trailer has made me much more hopeful about the overall quality of both the production and the writing. The first trailer was truly weak, and a lot of the promo photos they’ve released have been cheesy/very amateur-looking. Those indicators have me questioning what we’re actually going to see onscreen in November. But, I’m hoping for the best. I’ll admit, I’m almost fully converted to Rob Pattinson as Edward. When his casting was first announced … um … let’s just say, I was ugly about it. Cheers!

It’s nothing against Stephenie’s other work, I just can’t tear myself out of Forks!

The only sad news I heard in the Twilight blockbuster discussion was that there’s a significant number of fans who are refusing to see the movie!? I know that they don’t want to “ruin” their perfect vision.. but they’re not going to give the movie a chance? I don’t know if its because the trailer makes Rob’s and Kristen’s lines seem flat* or because they hate the casting choices.. Really though, I read somewhere that Stephenie saw the movie and liked it so much she wished she’d had time to watch it again right away.. if -that’s- not a ringing endorsement I don’t know what is.

Melissa’s script is very faithful to the characters and the plot sequencing. Some of the dialogue is changed, but the essence is there. The thing to remember is, if its good enough for Stephenie, why shouldn’t it be good enough for me?

(*personally I think the trailer is a bad representation of Rob/Kristen’s acting ability – and I feel that in the context of a whole scene, dialogue/banter in general will seem more natural and dynamic)
