So, just about everyone with an ounce of sense has said this already, but what is the deal with Twilight?
I read the books two years ago and must admit that I initially liked them. Most girls do, because everyone is wooed by the thought of having a soulmate, someone who would do anything for them. But when you think about it, Edward takes the “I would do anything for you” philosophy to the most obnoxious level; no girl who loves you wants you to save her. No girl who loves you wants to be away from you. And she obviously doesn’t want you to die. So don’t be a stupid prat and think you’re being a hero. Because all you’ll be is a stupid prat.
Stephenie Meyer must have weird taste in boys. Who goes for the cold, hard, pale boy instead of the warm, soft, tanned one? Especially when being with the cold one means you have to change yourself and possibly never see your family again?
But of course, none of this would be relevant in the real world. Not because there aren’t such things as vampires and werewolves, but because no boy in their right mind would actually love the Bella Swan that Meyer describes. Bella has got to be the most depressing, unloveable, stupid twit of a main character…and the reader is supposed to like her. Yeah, NO.
The movie Eclipse was better than Twilight (I didn’t bother seeing New Moon), but Kristen Stewart’s acting still made me want to vomit and Robert Pattinson still looks like he’s fighting back a seizure at every turn. And does Bella own anything besides plaid flannels?
Oh yeah, and Taylor Lautner, are you aware how many 12 year olds pretend their pillow is you when they kiss it at night?
