I have been reading Twilight. Just like everyone else out there with a pulse. And I have to say that I am completely under-whelmed.
First off you have Edward:
This guy is over 100 years old, and he is stalkling a 17 year old girl. Tell me that that is romantic. There is no mystery here, other than a vampire doing his job of messing with a human.
And then we have Jacob Black.
Jacob is a nice enough guy until his werewolf genetics take over. And then his real colors show. He is an abuser. Isn't that lovely.
Finally we have Bella. Bella Swan.
Bella is a treat. She is a self-absorbed, whiny snot. She has a Father who needs to be smacked upside of his head, and a Mother who needs some medication.
That is my take on Twilight.
