Honestly, I don't care about what people say about Stephenie Meyer's writing. I love it. Yes, this may have started out really slow and didn't catch my attention until about chapter 8... But I really ended up loving this book. I just finished reading it about an hour ago. I'm hoping that she writes a sequel to this. But I'll be okay if she doesn't.
I'm somewhat excited to see it be turned into a movie. Hopefully I'm not disappointed.
