At the beginning of February we started listening to the Twilight series on our commute to work. A little more than sixty hours and fifty-two CDs later, we are happy to be done with the story. As some readers may be aware, Stephanie Meyer's vampire saga is quite popular with the teenage crowd.
The storyline is Romeo and Juliet meets Wuthering Heights with a vampire/werewolf backdrop. It is sometimes clever, occasionally amusing, and way too angst-filled for anyone over the age of fifteen to fully appreciate. While it has been a LONG TIME since anyone in THIS office has been a teenager, some of us did find it entertaining to be reminded of what goes on inside the heads of those under twenty. However, after sixty hours, we are glad it is over because nobody should have to relive their teen years:-) [Permalink]- Twilight Audio Series
