Hmm, I'm not the biggest fan of Edward. Just some of things he does is so cheesy romantic that I just want to hit him. (But I won't for fear of a broken hand..ahha) I do like him as a character. He's cares for the well-being of other people (well mostly just Bella..), her safety, not to mention he's gorgeous but he also has his flaws. I think that's one of the reasons why I like him somewhat because he's not perfect and everything he does isn't always right.
I can see why people love him and fall all over him but I will always and forever be Team Jacob :D

Ok so i don't not like Edward but he's not my favorite... I mean I'm more of a Jacob fan... When i first started to read the books i was in love with Edward... i mean if he was real i would have been all over him ( not literally speaking) But as i read on... i totally turned over to Team Jacob more... Every day i find myself leaning towards the jacob side more and more... I'm still team Switzerland because i mean i can't hate edward... i just like jacob better...:D

it's really hard not to love Edward. I mean, despite the somtimes cheesey romantics, I just have to adore him. But, actually, he kind of makes me sad sometimes, because I don't think that real people like that exist. It's like I've given up on real men, and I'm only interested in the fictional ones. lol. I think this is one of the reasons I prefer Jasper to Edward. He's more real from what I've seen of him.

No, I don't like Edward. For me he's too unrealistic. At one point of book, I became so annoyed both by him and Bella that I wanted to stop reading. It's hard to believe that he couldn't find girlfriend in one hundred years long life.

He's simply too unrealistic. I've never liked him or will. Not kind of my dream guy

(And for the record, I'm not Jacob fan.)

Rosalie and rest of Cullens, the Volturi (little Jane), Leah :)

In book I prefer minor character, the one that are rarely mentioned. So when I read passage with their name in it, I get pretty excited.

Oh i see... yes i do like the cullens too.... mostly like Jasper... my favorite Minor character has to be Embry...:) He's just a bit different then all of them... then Emily and Seth... I absolutly fell in love with Seth after reading Eclipse :) He was so brave for being so young... But my overall favorite is Jacob....

I'm not very original when I say that I like Edward too. That doesn't mean I abhor Jacob. I like Edward because he is not, in my opinion, unrealistic. He has emotions too. Just like any human would. And another thing I liike about him is that he is always such a gentleman, unlike the boys nowadays(in general).

I'll admit, I loved Edward when I first read Twilight (and a small part of me still does, in a way), but I have definitely shifted my thoughts on that after reading New Moon and Eclipse.

New Moon is when he started to get on my bad side, first by the horrible way he left her (No warning? Ditching her in the woods? Come on Ed! What's that about??) and then steeling/hiding her pictures and the CD he gave her. It REALLY made me mad when he did that. What right did he have to take her things? I know he was trying to do the selfless thing and leave Bella alone for her own good- I honestly think he was right to do that- but sometimes I think he should have stayed away. I have been annoyed with him since he came back into the picture at the end of New Moon. I felt like we were really starting to get to know Bella and see a different side of her, a more independent (and much less obsessive) Bella who was learning to laugh again, and love again. Then suddenly Edward's in trouble and Bella has to run off to save him, abandoning all the progress she had made. It REALLY irked me how easily Bella let him back into her life. It's like she can't say no to him. It's a bit unsettling.

I may have been able to get over my ill feelings toward Edward if it weren't for his behavior in Eclipse. All the time he spent trying to keep her away from Jacob- dismantling her truck? Bribing Alice to kidnap her?? Unbelievable!!! And the worst part about it is how Bella never really gets mad at him about any of it, she simple lets him control her in that way, and she ends up treating Jacob- her best friend- very badly this whole time as a result of Edward's power over her. Also the part when Edward gives Bella the diamond heart-shaped charm and puts it on the bracelet that Jacob made her for graduation gift- that was a very very not ok thing to do in my eyes. And then he goes on to force her to agree to marry him even though she ABSOLUTELY does not want to at. all. The way she reacted when he first showed her the ring had me nearly screaming at my book "Say no Bella! Throw the ring at him and RUN!". She obviously does NOT want to marry him and I know she doesn't really want to become a vampire, all she thinks about is wanting to make Edward happy and wanting to be able to be with him forever (in her eyes immortal = forever, which why she thinks she wants to be a vampire).

When I go back and re-read the books I find evidence of this obsessive relationship even in Twilight where I first thought I loved Edward, in the way Edward is constantly holding on to Bella... or carrying her... or wrapping his arm around her waist... as if she cant even stand up on her own. Overall Edward is nauseatingly overprotective and extremely possessive of Bella which I DO NOT admire or like in any way. And Bella's inability to say no to him is also a factor in my dislike for him. Edward is a drug for her. The two are obsessed with each other in a way that drives me crazy as a reader.

And that concludes my Edward rant for the day.
"I saw the whole thing- our whole life. And I want it bad, Jake, I want it all."
