Andrea............."HATE" is a very strong word to use. I dont 'hate' any of the characters, we all have preferences and different characters 'touched' all of us in different ways. Even tough I am Team Jacob, I respect everybody elses opinion and that it what makes this on-line group so great. But to actually say you 'hate' Jacob is beside me. You clearly did not understand the books, what SM tried to bring to us.
