The book was, while neither well written or even good, at least addicting. The movie, however, was not so. It suffered from a poor choice for female lead, we've long known Kristen Stewart cannot act, nor, as displayed in this movie, show emotion. It also suffered even more so from horrible directing. Extreme closeups and burning glances do not make chemistry. This movies only saving grace was Robert Pattinson, and even he suffered from the deplorable directing and his deplorable costar.
