Oh dear Brockman, you know how to make a gal feel guilty that she has neglected the Powells book blog for a few weeks! I'm glad I checked in today! I've been so busy learning about credit default swaps and CDO's (thank goodness for Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman!) I can tell you I tried to read a few pages from one of these Stephanie Meyer books when my 15 year old niece took it out of the library, but it was risible. She too couldn't stomach it and returned it unfinished. Thank goodness my rural dial-up keeps me from watching the Twilight trailer -- the antics of Wall Street are cheesy enough for me right now.

I am a Meyers fan but the movie looks silly to me. They take all the good things from the book and turn them into total CW cheesy.
