I will admit that I am not going to be the best addition to any book club. I do love to read, but finding the time to sit down and focus for any reasonable length of time is not going to happen. I rarely have time to catch up on the latest issue of US Weekly anymore. After discussing the differences between the book and the movie with a friend, Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight suddenly became more interesting to me. Almost interesting enough to …gasp…read! I love the first two movies but became frustrated with the amount of detail that was missing. So, instead of trying to read through the entire Twilight series, I did what any busy girl would do…I downloaded the audio books from itunes!
I love the detailed descriptions of the Cullen house in the book, seeing it in the movie is a little different but the house is stunning.
Here is a bit of information on the “Cullen House”.
“The Hoke residence was originally built as a ’spec’ house [This simply means it was built, with the speculation of finding a suitable buyer], or a project built without a client as a development for sale.
After two days on the market, the house was purchased by the director of footwear design at Nike, John Hoke. Following a cover story in a northwest architecture publication, The Hoke’s were approached by a film location scout, a little film called Twilight.”
