I know, I know. Really Dan, Twilight? But just like Harry Potter I finally had to see what all the hype was about. The first person who recommended the books to me was the nice lady cleaning my teeth at the dentist. It was my first time there and she was making small talk. I told her I liked to read. She got all excited and told me I had to read this book called Twilight. She seemed embarrassed that it was about vampires, which peaked my interest, but said that the story was so good she just couldn't put it down and was letting the dentist borrow them now. After that I started to hear about the books from other people. "You have to read the Twilight books, they're so good!" These comments were all from people I knew weren't avid readers, so I thought they must be good to get people who don't read often all excited. Then I started hearing the other side. All the bashing of "sparkly vampires" on podcasts I listened to. It seemed all the people who liked the genre fiction I did hated these Twilight books. They said they were awful. Well, I couldn't take it anymore. I had to find out for myself, so I read the first book. OK, on with the review.
