I've never even picked up the book. I have an ingrained hatred for pretty much anything that's hyper-popular. I refused to read Harry Potter for the LONGEST time, until a girlfriend finally told me to just read the first book and then leave the series alone if I didn't like it.

Don't get me wrong, I love vampires, my first girlfriend and I used to play a roleplaying game "Vampire: The Masquerade" with some friends, I was addicted to Anne Rice in high school, and have even started my own paranormal romance novel. But everything I've heard about Twilight has made me want to stay far, far away from it.

Flawless characters are boring. Whenever I get down to actually writing, I try very hard to make my characters realistic. Somebody can be handsome without being Michelangelo's David.

That's another reason I want to avoid Twilight. I lived through the teenage girl years and never want to revisit that crap.

Also I understand that because it's a YA novel there's no sex. That might be fine and dandy for some people, but if there's going to be beautiful vampires to get you all hot an bothered, I'd rather they follow through on it.

And yet I like that it leaves some things to the imagination. It's a great thing that there are vampire novels to suit everyone's taste on the Kindle ;)
With all due respect I find it kind of aggravating when books sidestep sex when the sexual tension is obviously there. It doesn't have to be described pornographically, but I don't find chaste relationships realistic in the least, so it breaks the immersion for me when two people are MADLY in love and refuse to have sex. Again, my opinion only of course. But you can see where I'm coming from.
