Yes. I spelt it twhighlight on purpose. That is because i want to highlight some issues i have with the twilight series. Firstly, I have only read book one, so these may not be as well informed as others will know. But i am not sure why a trashy teen with poor plot line and terrible character development has managed to become such a hit. And people who hint that this may be the modern day Romeo and Juliette should read Romeo and Juliette – shame on you all. Poor Shakespeare. Anyway, first of all, i take issue to a book where the only reason i have to like a guy is their stunning good looks. Secondly, this same guy is 90 something years old but likes a 17 year old girl. Thirdly, this guy only likes the girl because he cant read her mind. That is weird right? He has some power/control issues. Fourthly, this guy may not eat humans (hey I like that in a guy too), but i am not sure why it is good that he eats raw deer instead…attractive i think not. Fifth, so the teenagers fall in love. This takes about 7/8th of the book then right at the end evil vampires are added to be saved from…what odd plot development. Finally, moving to the movie now i would like to point out that Robert Pattinson is a person, not a vampire. He is actually an actor – they pretend to be other people. I cant understand why girls around the world have forgotten this concept of people acting characters, especially of the mythical variety. He cannot bite you and make you a vampire so please stop with the Bite Me Robert business, its an embarrassment to female-kind.
That is all.
I’ll keep you posted.
(my next post will be about leggings not being pants – another issue i would like to rant about).
