    Awful, just plain awful and boring.
    New Moon wasnt really that boring, well, compared to the first one.

    New Moon kind of confirms ISFP for bella. Shes got unhealthy Fi to the max

    I'm an ENFP, and I've been reading romance novels since 9th grade.

    Some romance-esque novels that NTs might not scoff at are...

    The Scarlet Letter

    Fight Club

    Survivor

    A Farewell to Arms

    Pride and Prejudice

    (And it's too early in the morning for me, so that's all I can think of at the moment )

    I think that Female Fs are more prone to reading romance novels, ummm, duh?!!?

    I gobbled all four of the Twilight books with glee, and yeah, some of it was utterly retarded, but, whatever, it was entertaining, and I love me some romance, and if I can defend Stephanie Meyer at all, is that she does know how to create pretty good characters, and maintains a solid inter-character dynamic within her novels.

    Is her writing complex?

    No.

    Are her characters complex?

    Far from it.

    But, I'm not ashamed to admit to the fact that I have a huge crush on the fictional Edward Cullen, that I love Carlisle's and Bella's father's characters.

    Even Jacob has his moments.

    My best friend who is an INTP just started reading them, she works in the publishing industry in nyc, and even she could appreciate them for what they were.

    I also am not afraid to admit that I am a sucker for some relatively cheesy romantic comedies.

    French Kiss: loved it

    Hitch: loved it

    Kate and Leopold: loved it

    And that's all the cheesy ones I can think of at the moment, though I genuinely think French Kiss is a good movie!

    Ha, my ISTP brother read them and liked them, and he barely reads. But I am not ready to take the plunge. Was never really a vampire person. Or a romance person for that matter.

    In general, I'm not afraid of more cheesy things. I like what I like, what can I do. I also found Hitch hilarious and for some reason I like every Matt McConaughey movie ever made.

    I rarely read, but i enjoyed all four books as i read them.
    Then i decided to recount what had happened in them and could only come up with this expression -

    They've got some magical power that makes you think you're reading a highly involved series. You get trapped up in this world where the characters actually have depth and where you're gripping for what's next. A lot of people, especially youngins, can't shake themselves loose from that world.

    The woman shat out four books and the only props i can give her is for making it seem like there is more than there is. Subliminal messages or something.

    My sister read three of the books because everyone around her was reading them and she wanted to be able to discuss them with her friends. She thought they were terrible, but was so frustrated at not understanding why everyone loved them so much that she re-read the first book, and then almost read it again before I stopped her. :-P She's an ISTJ.

    I get liking fluff, but I have no desire to give this series a shot--especially having seen two of the movies.

    I admit, though, I have never been particularly fascinated by vampires. Or werewolves. or whatever flavor of monster she might fall in love with in book 3.

    I think it must be reptilian propaganda. What Unkindloving says matches.

    For a good laugh and 'wtf' moment, you should borrow the fourth book from someone. It's the only one that is worth anything and not because it's good in the slightest.
    Since i finished it, i've been trying to wrap my mind around what the hell the movie will look like.
