Yum, hot vampire boys

I haven't read any of this series called Twilight, although a friend recently dumped all 4 tomes on me and insisted I must.  Worthwhile?  Anyway, the movie certainly has some cute, angsty vamps in it.  Looks entertaining.  (Say, sorry for the ad at the end of the trailer. Just noticed it.  Was way too distracted by vampires.)

Funnily enough, I read a whole article about this just last week. I think it was at MSN entertainment. They had an article about the film (though I got the impression this was a tv series ?) and the cast of characters. Apparently, this is about a whole family of vampires. It sounded interesting. They also said if you hadn't ever heard of the books, you must be living under a rock! Well, I guess that's where I am because I have never heard of this, lol! If you read it, let me know if it's worthwhile.

I know - I'm definitely living under a rock because I'd never heard of them until my friend raved about them and gave them to me. Then of course I start seeing it everywhere. I'm not normally one for vampire stuff - I was only mildly interested in Buffy and her crew and I've never read any of Anne Rice's books. Maybe I'll see this movie though - it has a sort of Smallville feel about it.

I've never read them, either, but my daughter absolutely adores them, if that is any recommendation. **grin** I did think I would probably enjoy the books, from her description.

The trailer looks interesting!

Yeah, it does look good. I don't know if it'll just be a total teen flick but as I said might be entertaining.

That looks really good. Never heard of the books, but, then again, I haven't investigated much 'new' in many years. Might have to check this one out!

Let me know if you see it before I do.

As in Twilight, Eclipse and so on by Stephanie Meyer? I didn't know it was so good. I never got tired of Spike's ankle length leather. I'm meant to be reading Lost Souls at the moment. Urky beginning. You might tempt me into Meyer. Hadn't thought of reading it - but now, well...

And Swordsman and Privilege? Just to die for. I cannot believe how good they are. So much understated even while it is still so dramatic. Richard is phenomenal in his aspect of wanting /loving Alec.

Thanks for the recommendations :)

Yes, Stephanie Meyer, you got it. (Ummm yes, Spike's ankle length leather coat). Oh, yes where was I? Erm, Twilight. Since I haven't so much as cracked one of these books - and they are tomes, I can't imagine writing that much of anything - I can't give you my thumbs up or down, either way.

Soooo pleased you enjoyed Ellen Kushner's books. *g* I'd like to do another fic in that universe.

The further I got in the Sword books, the more I appreciated your fic. It was an amazing match for the books and characters. Your fic 'spoke to me' vividly while I read the Kushner.

"Your fic 'spoke to me' vividly while I read the Kushner."
I can't tell you how pleased I am to hear this. I think Windfall is my second favorite story that I've written. I went back and reread that extensive review you wrote and was floored again by your generosity in writing it. Thank you!

Is Oromedon, or the Osse story, your favourite, by any chance?

I was very pleased you enjoyed those comments, and you were very welcome. Lovely fic.

You had me looking up your discussion with me of Ellen Kushner's book when I got this message. I certainly read both of them with an eye to her style. I am glad I waited the year. Much more informed in appreciating what she did by the year of people's comments about writing techniques.

Then I forgot all about povs and descriptions and plot unfolding and just wanted to know what would happen and revelled in their characters and relationship *g*

Oromedon's Lessons.

Right, good story makes you forget all about the technique that's achieving the good story. *g*
