Stephenie Meyer has recently branched out into adult fiction with her novel 'The Host"

How devastating for her to lose all that work. Even worse it sounds as if the leak originated with someone she knows and trusted.

I agree! I really liked The Host. Not so fond of her series, though. Breaking Dawn went flying across the room one night and I still haven't picked it back up.

Here's an interesting quote from Robert Pattinson, the actor who is going to be playing Edward in the upcoming movie:


"When you read the book, it's like, 'Edward Cullen was so beautiful I creamed myself.' I mean, every line is like that. He's the most ridiculous person who's so amazing at everything. I think a lot of actors tried to play that aspect. I just couldn't do that. And the more I read the script, the more I hated this guy, so that's how I played him, as a manic-depressive who hates himself. Plus, he's a 108-year-old virgin so he's obviously got some issues there."

well I think he has to take into account, and apprently didnt, that the book is for teenage girls. They did make Edward out to be some knight in shinning armor, but thats what they want.

I think he was being a little unfair to the teenage girls.
