really liked it

I liked this book, I really did. It was very vivid, I adored the little twist at the end, and I can see why it's being turned into a movie.

My biggest problems, though, were that the relationships all seemed to develop at warp speed. Bam! Jacob's in love with Marlena. Bam! Jacob and August are best frenemies. Bam! Jacob hates Walter. Bam! Jacob loves Walter. I mean, he was only in that circus for like two months--very few things had time to really happen, they were so busy being forced at us.

But still. I rooted for the good guys and pitied the bad guys. And I will go see the movie, Edward Cullen or not.
