I can of course only speak from my perspective but in seeing the movie, having read all four books I can tell you that it is extremely captivating and exciting. It is refreshing to see an actual love story without having to have all the sex. Being an older woman of 42 I can tell you I have access to any types of movies however am renewed by this series and the first movie and it's message to younger girls and ladies. I am absolutely obsessed and find it difficult to not listen to one of the books daily (I have all four in audiobook). Looking forward to seeing New Moon and am hopeful that they minimize Jacob's role and increase Edward's as I am extremely excited about the acting & protrayal of the character by Rob Pattinson.
