The four volumes of "The Twilight Saga" answer these questions. Stephenie Meyer exceeds beyond expectations as she takes us through this amazing journey. The intensity of Edward's feeling towards Bella, his anxiety fro her safety, the over-protective instinct and Meyer's thorough description of his beauty both on the inner and outer aspects are probably the major factors that make Edward the most favorite character, by survey and statistics.
Through the positive and negative criticism, one thing is definite. THE TWILIGHT SAGA remains immortal, remembered and re-remembered for the coming centuries and generations.
