Twilight.Alex Day on Youtube is actually reading it out loud to his viewers. Not only do I not have to read the book and have someone else read it to me, but I also get to enjoy the company of Alex's clever wit and his instant reaction to what is being read. Alex makes the Twilight story more bearable considering that I find the plot, characters, and prose verging on blah.
I must let you know though that I do not mean any malice in not liking Twilight. It is not a well written book (I've read it a little) and I just find the love affair ridiculously tiresome. Perhaps if it was written better, I would have found it a little bit more illuminating. I still watch the movies though; because it is funny to watch shiny vampires and depressed teenagers stare painfully into each others eyes while jealous wolves ache for the next opportunity to rip their shirts off.
