First, if you can't enjoy a movie without first reading the book, it's a BAD FREAKING MOVIE.
However, I read the book (my wife was reading the series), and from what I can tell by reading this review, the movie adaptation was completely faithful.
Sorry to the fans, but it's a bad freaking book. It's several hundred pages of puppy luv, oddly plotted, a main character whose chief quality is being accident prone and helpless, and with a weird "vampire" angle that's just an insult to the whole genre. Vampires don't sparkle, they don't hunt mountain lions, and they wouldn't voluntarily spend their eternal lives in high school. It's just not good by any stretch of the imagination.
