PostSubject: Twilight Devotees - without reading the books!   Tue Jan 06, 2009 8:52 pm

So I'm starting my only little group of Twilight devotees even though they haven't read the books...long story short, I'm pretty much the only reader out of me and my 3 sisters, plus my 2 best friends are not big readers either but I've now dragged them all along to see Twilight (after gushing about the book!!)...and they are addicted! I got emails, phone calls and house visits with demands from them to basically re-tell the book as best as I could so they knew EVERYTHING in the story, without them having to actually pick it up...

I received the last 3 for Christmas and was slammed by them for more details!! I had to race through all three in 4 days (I'm now reading them at a more reasonably pace so I can enjoy everything!!) and then recount every single chapter - absolutely crazy, but hey - if it gets them hooked, I'm happy to sit and play story time!

Something kinda funny about 3 grown adult women sitting on the couches around me, mouths agape, eyes wide open, gasps / groans and sighs aplenty as I quote from a book they're in love with, but too freakin lazy to read!! Ahh well...all good fun!

I think it shows how powerful Twilight is lol. People that havent even read the books still love it. I love the books but I can see people watching the movie and just falling in love with the characters as well.

[b]Yeah! I am not a big reader and I have not read the books but I am addicted to the Twilight Saga. I basicly know everything that happened in the books because my wife has read them all at least twice. She begged me to go see the movie and I didn't think I would like the movie but I loved it. So after I seen the movie I found out that my sis-in-law had this forum and I had to join it. After joining this I have learned so much more and have really enjoyed this. Thanks Tam. Love ya sis Tam.

I also see you are in love with Alice lol. It's so hilarious having a guy on here because there is a lot of estrogen in this forum. Welcome and I hope you enjoy! You should try reading the books. It is one thing to hear a lot about them but to actually read them is amazing!

My boyfriend loved the movie but he isnt brave enough to admit he is a Twilighter lol. He went to see it again by himself and was so embarrassed because he was surrounded by screaming women who yelled every time Edward was on the screen.

Yea he wasnt too happy about all the Edward love...hell he wasnt happy about the love for any of the guys in it tho lol. But he did admit he was falling for Rosalie LMAO. He cracks me up and he said he is also crushing on Alice so there you have it. There is enough eye candy in the movie for everyone!
