Twilight: an explanation


The Twilight novels do manage to break every rule about what remotely qualifies as good writing – especially the rule that no character should ever be perfect. Yet Meyer foists oh so perfect Edward upon us, with the whole blood-drinking thing intended as his glaring imperfection, rather than his much more alarming "watch you while you sleep and make all your basic decisions for you" stalker tactics. It’s essentially abstinence porn – erotica for people who guilty or conflicted about sex.
