OK, I admit it, curiosity got the better of me. My wife read the whole series and really loved it. When the movie came out, I thought I could kill two birds with one stone (so to speak): 1)I could be romantic and take her to see Twilight on opening day and 2)I could see exactly what the deal was with the story between Bella and Edward. The movie was OK, not great, but not completely bad either. After hearing from several people that the movie was totally different then the book, I finally gave in and read it. Without giving anything away, I did like the idea of the story. Bella and Edward were likeable characters, for the most part. The problem that I did have with the book was it left me wanting more to happen. This is after all a story about vampires. I was expecting more to that side of the story, so when it didn't happen, I was disappointed. I realize that there are more books in the series, but in order for a series to grab (and hold) my attention it needs to make me want to continue to the next book. It has to have enough in each book to justify me investing my time learning about the characters in the story. Twilight didn't do that for me.
