I know, I know...I am a little behind the times...I found the series late and now need to catch up on a couple of years of forum postings - haha - that should keep me busy at work...
But here is my opinion of my favorite character..of course, like many, its Edward. But other than the obvious reasons; he is a true gentleman and of course, those cognac EYES (OMG!! - how does Stephenie write so vividly - makes me catch my breathe every time they are mentioned). I really enjoy him because he is so tortured by his internal struggle with who he believes he is vs. who he really wants to be, I can totally relate to that. Also, he retains some of his human characteristics. As perfect as he may seem, he has numerous flaws, which make him irrestable and not totally "unattainable/unapproachable". The fact that he makes decisions based on what he thinks is best for the people around him, even if they are not always correct, just makes him so good-hearted. Also, so educated and intelligent..you almost feel like you can have any conversation with him and learn something new every time.
Stephenie writes all of her characters so creatively, you feel like you know them...but Edward, oh that Edward, just takes my breathe away.
