I hate, hate, hate the Twilight craze. Kudos the vampires who get it right, you know, bursting to flames in the sunlight and stuff. First of all, the series is an increasingly violent harlequin rag that is written on a third grade level. The dynamic between the “heroine” and the rest of the cast of characters is very lacking in anything substantial that you can connect with. Essentially, Bella is suicidal and will get herself into all sorts of reckless endangerment at the expense of making everyone else’s life extremely difficult and miserable. She pretty much says throughout the whole series that she wants to die young so that she won’t have to deal with wrinkles and osteoporosis. What is that?! I’d rather watch Barbie movies than listen to the “Twi-hearts” go on about how they love the book.
