just finished reading it and am on to the next one "New Moon".
I tried to read but nothing seemed to hold my attention during this
crisis I'm going through. I just couldn't read or concentrate on any
of the words until I decided to buy "Twilight", which I've been
trying to hold off for some time.
Anyway, It did grab my attention while I was shopping for a book for a
student. I was about to just pass by but my book-loving part took
control (I think)... grabed the book and went straight to the counter.
I'm glad I did get it because I was getting afraid that I wouldn't be
able to read anything for some time. It was nice to be distracted by a
high-teen novel and just me able to enjoy it: imagining and just being
consumed by it.
I can't compare the novel with the movie yet since I haven't seen it..
However I do feel that it is an easy-read and something you might want
to read if nothing else just seems to be interesting. Oh, but if
you're not that into vampire stories then you might want to skip it
cus it IS about vampires.
I'm half way into "New Moon". It still is a bit difficult to
concentrate but the fact that I am reading something is more
important. I'm hoping to finish the second book of the four and
hopefully I'll be able to start the third one: Eclipse.

difficult to cope. And it's been extra hard to read anything though I
do love to read. I know I used to read to get rid of the strain and it
used to relieve me of stress, allow me to escape from reality, and
live in the literary or imaginary world. However, the numbness that I
feel lately seems to block all that. Dad's not duing so well. It's
been 10months since he's been diagnosed. The doctor did say a year but
what I didn't realize was how short that year would be. He's been
hospitalized now and it's been 2 months Mom's been spending her time
with Dad. She's tired, he's tired we're all tired.... The numbness
just won't go away.. We're breathing, living everyday as if nothing's
wrong but the truth is that nothing's right.. It never will be.. And I
think I'm finally begining to realize that. That everything has
