Much more romance in the book than the movie, although the movie does a good job. I understand how many people who have read the books first are disapointed with the lack of romance in the movie. I don't think I have read a book with such romance in a very long time. I love everything about this book, I'm sure that every girl that has read this book is hoping for their very own Edward someday. I actually couldnt put the book down, it was an addition to my hand for two days untill I finished it, and New Moon took its place in my hands. I GARAUNTEE you will love this book.
