What I am most interested in hearing the male perspective on the Twilight saga and debating the variances of those versus all of the women who have fallen in love with this series. I'm a 39 year old mother of 2, married to Mr. Blue (as we shall refer to him) for 13 years. Mr. Blue read the first book while we were on vacation this summer. He said it was pretty good, but he was disappointed that he did not get to see the 'big showdown' between Edward and James. 'Well, dear', I said, 'Bella was unconscious and the book is from her perspective. Not only that, but Edward was much more concerned about her well being at the moment, so really I think Jasper and Emmett mostly took care of that.' I would love for him to read more, but alas, I don't think it's going to happen. Did Pel ever start the discussion/debate thread she suggested a while back?
Well, I am a new guy to this forum, started reading the series like... 3 months ago. Finished the first 2 books in a day, and the other the next. Then I had to wait for BD to come out. (It sucked.) just finished reading BD like the same day it came out. I love the thought of vampires+romance. It... intrigues me.
Now as for the differences between a guys perspective, and a womans perspective is that we arn't as biased as you. Woman think of Edward and think "I'm dazzled" without looking at his whole(annoying) personality. I on the other hand do not wish for some prince to come sweep me off my feet, so I analyze him a bit more.(Same goes with Jacob)
Again, this is just my opinion on what I have seen on this, and previous forums. I do not mean all woman are blind, or anything, im just saying that most of biased, and tend to overlook some behavior.
I personally am an Emmett, Alice, and Seth fan. I find that there heart's are very much pure, and they all make me laugh. ^^
