After a long time and much curiosity, I've finally delved into the Twilight series. All I can say is this: I get it.
After all of these years and all of the excitement, I can see why so many people became obsessed with these treasures. Bella is someone guys want to be with and girls want to be. She is confident and funny. On the flip side, Edward is the most relatable vampire I've ever read. He is as powerful as Dracula and as charming as Kiefer Sutherland in The Lost Boys. It makes sense why Bella would fall in love with him.
However, consider me "Team Jacob." Resourceful and kind, I have developed a man-crush on the attractive Native American, who I imagine has pecs like Khan from Star Trek. I mean that in a completely heterosexual way. Spring Break has allowed me to rifle through the first two books, but all I can say is I hope to see Bella and Jacob making babies in the end.
Twilight has its share of critics. I was one of them. But it's getting kids to read, it's presenting a vivid world of exciting images, and perhaps most importantly, it's showing a healthy view of what true love should look like. True love shouldn't have limits such as requiring similar hobbies or similar species. As long as no one falls in love with underage kids or babies by the end of this series, I'm confident it will go down in history with other great literature.
