Yeah, I read the books so long ago I don't remember most of their names. I never liked Carlisle
. Although my friend seriously thought it was pronounce car-LIZ-uhl so that provided a lot of entertainment for me. And made reading the books more fun. Like every character was suddenly Snoop Dogg... lol
I commend you! I could BARELY finish it the first time.
I'd say get the first book by itself. Worth it. So, so worth it. I wish I could reread it but I hate rereading books so soon after I last finished them.
