(I think this is the right place to put this in because i want to have this as a intelligent discussion.)
Okay so i'm a guy, and i'm confused. I've VERY VERY considerate about different things and i decided to figure out why this twilight series is such an addiction for girls. So i went and watched the movie VERY critically and then deciding that i can't judge it completely wihtout first reading the story i decided to read it. So i recently started reading it and i'm a little past half way right now and i'm just wondering if someone can shed some light on this phenomenon? Perhaps someone can explain it to me.
A) What's up with the whole thing about how the actor playing Edward in the movie being gorgeous? I he's obviously above average but omfg he has the bushiest eye brows ever! So what gives? (Had to get that out of my system i don't get girls... p.s. i is straight lol)
B) What's up with this love story? So i've been reading the story and the movie is very similar to its origins and i realized that the story lacks a true plot line... it's like wtf. It feels that 75% of the text is about her addiction to Edwards looks, fragrance, eyes... etc. How is this interesting?
C) How'd this book even get popular? Is this like the only book that girls can actually relate to? My god, i find it amusing how they portray a vampire as "beautiful" and it's pretty frustrating.... I am not saying that the series is bad... i'm just saying that it's not too special and since (as i stated above) 75% of the story is about "bella's" "love" towards Edward's attributes i feel like there's a large amount of story, and real story-needed-plot missing. Such as if you think about it, the movie which i can assume will stay true to the story i'm reading, can be divied into a few real scenes... 1-Bella leave 2- Bella meets Edward 3- Bella discovers Edward 4- Edward introduces her to family 5- New vampires 6- runaway from vamps 7- Edward vs. new vamp 8- Ending
D) Has anyone noticed the VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY similar underlying theme which is like EXTREMELY similar to that of Tuck everlasting. It's not extremely apparant in the first movie/book but it's clear to me, it seems that there will be conflict on Bella's decision about immortality...
Okay so in conclusion, just please tell me what's so special about this blood series. Can someone simply tell me that much? And no, this is not some guy who knows nothing rambling on about girly things... i've read many stories which have heavy romances in them and yet this is by far the most skillesly written book that brings romance into its storyline.
