My Take on Twilight
I know that this will annoy many of you... but oh well... here I go. I don't think Bella should get EITHER of those boys! For a fictional character, she sure annoyed me! I felt like she was always complaining and pouting. They spoke of her being an "old soul". PSHAW! She was more like a tantruming toddler to me! I understand that she's a teenager and trying to figure life out. She's heartbroken most of the time and constantly being chased by vampires that want to destroy her. I can see where she would be terrified, BUT in so many ways she seems rather spineless. And selfish. And obnoxious. And shallow. Does she care about Edward, or his looks? It's kinda hard to tell sometimes... Towards the end of the third book I started to like her more, but not enough to feel like she should get to be with Edward OR Jacob. If I had to pick one though, I'd pick Edward... because I think Jacob deserves better. I hope he finds (or imprints on) someone who is kind and will love him the way he deserves to be loved. And Edward... well, I get tired of him running hot and cold. He has more mood swings than I do in full on PMS mode!
But, I did like the story. It was interesting and entertaining. I think Amber hit the nail on the head when she said, "Those books are like a drug--totally addictive but not all that rewarding!" Amen sister, amen! And so, like a druggie, I will read book four. And I will hope that Bella grows up just a bit.
Now, I know that this is a touchy subject for some, but who do you want Bella to end up with? Edward? Or Jacob? And why?
