Meet the Cullens. So, you may not know them by face, but if you have been alive in the world for the past couple of years, you may know that they RULE the pop culture world. And this is a world in which I am always on top of current events. That's right people, I'm talking about Twilight.
Teenage vampires...yada, yada, yada. Trust me, it is not my typical genre of choice either. In fact, I passed over it for a good 6 months before my book club chose it. And then I read over 2,000 pages in just over 3 weeks. I have four children, so you do the math on how "involved" I was as a parent. It's not a book, it's an obsession.
So I just saw the movie tonight, and it was great...not as amazing as the book, but good. Edward takes some getting used to (in my mind he was played by James Franco), but I think I like him. Let's face it people, they are trying to cast the perfect, immortal man...and since Michael Denckhoff is a little tied up with his crazy family, they had to go with this guy.
If any of you out there are looking for a good read, Twilight will not disappoint. Yes, it was written for 15 year olds, but it seems the stay-at-home mom crowd is really in on this action. Since I have read it, I have literally hooked 3 other unsuspecting souls on the series. Powerful stuff.
