I tried reading Twilight so me and some other people would have something to talk about and bond over. I was pretty sure I'd love it - all those emotions and vampires and crying etc etc... but it just. did. my. head. in.
Seriously. I mean, I know I have high standards (Harry Potter! The Chrestomanci books! Computer game instruction manuals!) but Twilight was just so absurd. I have no trouble believing in vampires...but how could anyone invest any emotion in a character as hideous as Bella? Please, tell me - I need to know. Why would you make your main character be such a miserable turd?
It's a shame really, since the overall story (sexy vampires wanna smooch your face) is totally up my street.
Thanks for ruining it Bella. Thanks for ruining EVERYTHING!
