I'm aware that Ripley was chosen by the estate, but that doesn't make it a good book.

Why didn't you like it? So many of the women I know that loves GWTW also loved Scarlett. I know I did.

Finally went to see the movie today with my sister (first chance that we could go together, we have seen all the others together) I had quickly reread the end of Breaking Dawn, this past week, so it would be fresh in my mind. I think the movie was great, of course a few things were left out, a few things changed and the vision scene added, which was quite shocking. I think it was good that they added that. I have no complaints. Now, not so patiently waiting for Catching Fire, oh and a book I read, Divergent, I think its suppose to be made into a movie also.

Loved the vision scene and think they put that in for the faithful readers who needed a little shock! I was SHOCKED! I quickly quit thinking of the parts left out or changed. Shock! Everyone cheered when it was over

Well, so as to clear it up, my comments were based on generalizations. No, all women aren't that way. In fact, I'd wager that most of them aren't. What I am saying is that most girls, when they are young, are quite naive when it comes to what love is and many see this weird relationship with Bella and Edward as what loves is.
