Deeper into Twilight
I love Vampires. Always have.
Perhaps it is the Carpatho Rusyn blood in me (yes, the Carpathian kind).
But it is an undeniable infatuation…charismatic, artistic, passionate, flawed….Vampires make for good reading material – and typicallly (at least for me) very compelling fare for cinema.
Having made it through the first two books of the TWILIGHT series by Stephanie Meyer (TWILIGHT and NEW MOON respectively) in less than a week, it is safe to say that I am hooked.
I will be finishing the third book (ECLIPSE) this week in anticipation of the worldwide release of the final book in the series, BREAKING DAWN, on August 2, 2008. I just can’t get enough of this story! (UPDATE: It’s official – I just finished ECLIPSE after a Sunday morning read-a-thon… I couldn’t wait!)
The saga employs a high degree of suspense and tension – keeping readers THIRSTING for more. The characters are teens/young adults – but the emotions are raw and intimate. It is no wonder that the fans are so passionate about sharing their excitement about the books and the upcoming movie.
BREAKING DAWN, is one of the most anticipated book releases of the summer and as I wrote in a previous post, the film is already being touted as one of the most highly anticipated films of the Holiday 2008 film calendar.
Just in case you missed it, here is the second (2nd) trailer released promoting the film.
I really hope that the film does the book justice…and if it does, I hope that they will create either a film franchise or a TV show following these wonderful characters.
I can’t wait for Comic-Con in San Diego next week!! I am predicting that it will be TWILIGHTcentral!
Not that I can see the future, or anything…. 😉
