I have a weird love/hate relationship with the franchise.
Mainly, I don't like.
I never liked it. And I tried reading it to see what the hype was all about.
However, I can see WHY people might like this book.
It's a love story with super-powerful fantasy guys and a heroine is basically the reader by proxy. And there is a few good jokes and some interesting secondary characters.
But what threw me off the books was the poor writing, the even poorer french translation, the lack of spine and brains of the leading girl, the overbearing and useless self-provoked angst, and the ending. The ending is so weird, even actual fans acknowledge it's awful. This book also taught me it was possible to overuse the words "Dazzling" and "love".
But, this book is very present in my life lately. A lot of my friends are fans. I would say, about half my friends are fans.
So, i'm kinda inclined to see the better parts of the franchise out of respect for them.
However, Jennifer, if you ever try to drag me to see this movie again, I will stake you. With a half-wood, half-silver spoon.
Don't temp me.
