Jared seems a little, over the top but i think it will be part of his charm, i said on the Jared/Melanie thread that they're very intense well now i'm going to speculate his personal intensities!
He is very intense around humans having had no contact for such a long time. I don't know if i'll be as blind to his flaws as i am with Edward! (My friends a Team Jacober and tells me he has them!)
but i am looking forward to seeing more of stephenie's work!

I was not expecting such a rough character, I'll admit. Coming from the Twilight saga where everyone is smooth and sleek (even the geeks) it took me by suprise. But I can see where the jagged edges of his character would fit with what he has been through. Even the kiss which was...abrupt...was completely understandable, his desire to touch another REAL human being. I will definately be ready for more come May.

Exactly^
Knowing Edward, I expected a perfect man (how silly of me;) yet again and was caught off guard by his rough personality and rash decisions. Somehow, even though he's not perfect at all, and even hates the main character at first, you can't help but want him...hehe. I still choose Edward in a heartbeat, but i think Jared is more realistic, and i bet thats what Stephanie was going for. I kind of like how i wasn't expecting some of his reactions, it kept me on my toes and eager to find out what happens next;)

He's deff. different than Edward.

His reaction to seeing another human reminds me a bit like the reaction Will Smith's character had in I Am Legend after being alone with his dog for 2+ years. Interesting.

(*agrees with Cocoa*)
I understand the roughness though, especially after all that he has been through. =/

But right now, I'm not too taken by him. He certainly has more rough edges to smoothe out than Edward. :?

I'm pulling a total Lizzie Bennett here, but...

"I was completely wrong about him."

Jared is amazing. Simply amazing. :D
I didn't think that a mere human could rival the greatness of our beloved Edward Cullen.
I was wrong.
Jared comes close, damn ridiculously close. :D

I dont know about Jared, when Wanda had to try to get to know him first, i dont think Jared should have been so...nasty... i under stand why he would have been like that... but some how, i reli like Ian being there for Wanda, where as Jared only 'appears' to be there for Mel...only, although he does begin to 'like' wanda...

I think how Jared first acted towards Wanda, reli put me off him, Ian seems more...like-able

what do you all think?

I didn't like him that much, and that surprised me. Most books I read, especially fantasies, I tend to fall for the main male character, but in this case I didn't. He kind of irritated me, but I didn't hate him. I don't really have a reason for disliking him since he's a perfectly decent character, but something about him just doesn't appeal to me.
