This third installment in the Twilight series lived up to the hype of the first book. The characters were better developed and the story line more fast-paced than the second book. The competition between Edward and Jacob is very well done.
This was my least favorite of the Twilight series. The book is very slow moving and the scenes of Bella moping around got tiresome. The werewolf story line is the most interesting part of this book. This was one instance where the movie turned out better than the book.
Twilight was an enjoyable light read. The story moved along and the concepts were interesting. The dialog leaves something to be desired but the characters are compelling. This was my favorite of the Twilight series.
I have seen this movie several times and I enjoy it every time. You really come to root for Hiccup as he tries to discover who he is. And the dragon Toothless is down right adorable. The writing is funny, the acents are great and the story carries you along to the end.
The movie is enjoyable and does a fair job of showing the author's journey in three countries over the course of a year, but much of the rich detail from the book is lost. For example, you get very little sense of why she goes to India and what she ultimately discovers about herself. I highly recommend the book.
