Back at the start of 5AG, you all liked Twilight a lot. These days, not so much. Having never read any of the series myself, does that reflect a change in you or more a change in the later books?

Meh. I enjoyed book one. It took me a long time to finish book two because Bella was just annoying the crap out of me, and by book three I just thought all of the characters were awful. Book four was hilariously atrocious and offensive. So I'd say that it's the books getting worse as you go through them, but I've had several friends who reread them and said that the beginning is awful once you've gotten through and started over. So while it might just be that the more you learn about the characters, the harder it is to see them the same way you did when you were just getting to know them, maybe it's partly a change in the person reading as well.
