I am doing this only as an effort at a more than fair shake at the series of books.

I have been critical of this teenage romance series, and with good reason.  The series is authored by Stephanie Meyer and has created quite a following in the teenage audience and in the adult female audiences.

The book is quite sappy in its romance with the confused Bella trying to figure out her teenage love.  She swings from Edward to Jacob and back again.  She is ditzy, would be an understatement.

I have found though that the book can be enjoyable under the circumstances that my mother-in-law used to read the book (and she liked the book too).  Speed read through it.  The way to do it in this case is to skip the repetitive paragraphs, and pages.  You can easily pick up on the story later without having missed a beat.  Thus, becoming an extremely casual reader of this book is beneficial to the likability of the book.  Another benefit is that the book finishes much more quickly.  The story becomes bearable and there is actually a climax in the book (though predictable as it may be).

Now, it is off to finish the rest of the books.

Overall grade = C-
