I’m not a big fan of Twilight. No it isn't because it's a romance, or because the vampires are sparkly. I don't care if Stephen King said Meyer was a bad writer. Although, I'm with King on that she's not great, but I think he goes too far, she isn't terrible. It's not because the movies were terrible adaptions, especially with the casting of the cardboard Kristen Stewart who is physically incapable of having emotional expressions, unlike Bella who is an emotional wreck.
It's plain and simple. I grew up with a rule at the dinner table. Don't play with your food. Simple.
Here's another issue I have with the whole vampire love thing. In a world where Vampires might exist, their glamour would always muck up a real relationship. You would never know if you were charmed or in love. The way Bella acts when he's not around is more like her being charmed supernaturally. It's kind of sick that Edward would do such a thing and then drag her around and marry her and all and everyone but me thinks it’s so romantic. Seriously Edward, stop playing with your food and eat it. You're a vampire for goodness sake. It's like me saying I love this chicken so much I'm going to watch it sleep every night and then marry it. Sadly I've heard weirder things in the real world and there is also the existence of vegetarians, so that is a terrible example. But he's a vampire. A more accurate example is like a Wolf and a Sheep falling in love. Eventually he'll lose himself and then she's what she's always been. The bone he buried in the backyard to save for later. He's a predator of humans, he can't help himself. That wolf never feels bad for eating the sheep, and frankly I love bbq, sorry vegetarians, so what is the deal with vampires and having human morals? If she smelled so delicious, then he should have drank up. That's how I would have ended it too. Instead of that X-Men showdown ending she came up with, but then I also think Romeo and Juliet is the best romantic story ever written. Tragedy or not, it pulled my heart strings. But it is Meyer's multimillion dollar baby, not mine so there you have it. She wins. I'm just a small person with a big mouth... err pen... alright a shiny keyboard!
Let me have it Twihards, or agree if you like, just keep it from getting personal. I'm not attacking Meyer here, she's a professional writer and has had great success. I'm just not a fan.
