MTV decided to try and figure why Breaking Dawn has such a buzz, with lots of fans (moreso than the last film) talking repeat viewings. By repeat viewings we don’t just mean two times, we mean like 4 plus. One of the people that they asked was the Lexicon’s Laura. It’s not often that we get taken by surprise around here, but you can see what Laura said to MTV. A massive shift in emails, Tweets, and blog comments spurred us to make the referenced poll.
“Twilight” expert Laura Byrne-Cristiano, who runs TwilightLexicon.com, said she’s noticed a lot of fans changing their opinions about “Breaking Dawn” the book now that the film version has opened.
“I’ve also noticed a real shift in opinion that caught me by surprise so much so that I ran a poll about it,” said Byrne-Cristiano said. “When the novel ‘Breaking Dawn’ came out, it was a love/hate thing. But from what I’ve seen, people have really started to change their minds about it, and have come to like it.
“The people who got into ‘Twilight’ after the movies came out seem to pick ‘Breaking Dawn’ as their favorite book by a landslide, which is something that never occurred to me in a million years because of all the backlash when it first came out.”
Apparently MTV is on to something, because the amount of sites linking to this poll is unlike anything we have ever seen. Like we said earlier, we don’t get totally blindsided around here too often. This one took us by surprise, Check out other fans and experts giving MTV their opinion here.
