As I mentioned yesterday, [livejournal.com profile] norwich36 and I went to see Twilight today. We tried to stifle our laughter, but we might have ruined the experience for the poor teenage girl in front of us.

Any and all spoilers are below the cut. I make no promises about what may or may not be in the comments.

I have a thing about reading series in progress (this is why it was so hilarious that I spent fully one-fifth of my Barnes & Noble gift card on the next books in four different series), so I'd been waiting to try out Twilight until the series was complete. I didn't want to actually buy the thing, even with a gift card, and the library's waiting list is apparently insanely long, so I took myself off to Barnes & Noble today to read it. The irony of the situation is that I spent just as much or more on lunch, a cookie, and hot chocolate as I would have on buying the actual book.

Here's the short, non-spoilery version of what I think: Twilight would have been greatly improved by an editor who was unafraid to (a) chop and (b) force Stephenie Meyer to tighten it up. I have to admit to skipping whole sections. I also will not be reading the other books, but instead reading the plot summaries on Wikipedia or somewhere similar.

Now it's time for spoilery talk. )
