I think it might increase with the release of the movies.

Hey guys, here's a question for all of you.

I was thinking of starting a thread called "The Twilight Saga..the male perspective" and having it here in Quench your thirst. I would then move "The Twilight Guys" thread to the Twilight Zone area so the XY's have a place to sound off and bond in an off topic area.

Thoughts?

hey i'm not a guy but know quite a few who have read it and really liked it. and they are pretty much split on who they like whether it be edward or jacob but most really like emmett because he's so sarcastic.

and for whoever asked a good vampire book on the first post interview with a vampire is really good it's kinda long but good. hope that helps some

Yeah, I'm a guy. I like it. I thought, especially in Twilight, the superfluous descriptions of Edward's perfection were a bit over the top at times, but all-in-all, I enjoyed it. I was mortified that Meyer made Bella a vampire, though.

Also, I'm surprised to see so many male readers relate better with Jacob.

I'm a guy and I love Twilight! They're like amazing books. I think it's dumb that some people won't read it because they'll think it's a girl book, just cuz the main character is a girl. I don't think it matters

My favorite characters right now are Seth and Alice, and Nessie

I can't wait for SM to write more books!

Yeah that would be cool, its already been hard in the old thread to stay on topic :D

Hum I immediately identified with Edward, because my ex-girlfriend was so much like Bella :oops:

I don't think the TWSaga is for girls, it's a love-story, yes, but we all want our love-story to happen, huh?
I had the BD poster, and all the happy and sad squeaking while reading the books, and I still feel as manly as before.

I think when Midnight Sun comes out, more guys will read it because it's from Edward's point of view, when he first sees Bella

Guess I'm odd, because I immediately identified with Edward not Jacob.


Yes it seems most guys like Jacob better...
When i went to the midnight release all guys where for jacob exept for me ( haha all three of them )
but im glad im not the only guy who identifies better with Edward than with Jacob.
Im okay with Jacob and all but hes a little too imature

But that's the thing.
Jacob is meant to be immature.
I'm a 16 year old and I can proudly say I act very much like him ( Unintentionally)

He hasn't fully matured mentally yet.
How would you feel if you, as a 16 year old, falls in love with someone who you'll never be able to get because she belongs to someone else?
He needed the chance to grow, and mature. Edwards had what? 106 years to do that? Remember what it said about Edward? he was ravenous, he felt misunderstood, went on mass killing sprees.

This is getting beside point. But yeah. That's why most teenage guys relate well to Jacob I reckon, and most probably most older guys relate to him as well because they remember being a teenager.
It depends on each person though.
