OK…I plead guilty . I have read only the first book ( if it hadn’t been for the headache it gave me…MAYBE I could have gone further )
I grew up with Bram Stoker and Anne rice people ….vampires , mansions , the cloaks , the opening of the coffins , the sheer romance and elegance of the evil .
So , forgive me ….i find it a BIT DIFFICULT to accept these “new age vampies” . Chikne little twinks roaming aorund the streets …sucking rabbits and bears and I dunno what else … falling in love with skinny anemic high school girls and driving high speed cars … ! It kind of damages the entire “vampire” aura .
They live in open air highly ventillated houses ( YIKES ! allergic to wooden coffins people ? ) …feed on animal blood ( turned veggie , huh ? )… wear jerseys and sweat-shirts and high necked sweaters ( she could have put in sherwani too … wouls have added on to the IMAGE ) …and listen to their girl friends talking in sleep ( FOR CHRIST’S SAKE …are you a vampire or a voyeur ? ) . Next thing you know , they’ll open up a chain of fast-food-blood-banks !
To add up to it …they get the humnas pregnant too ( Wo baby ! and we are still meddling around with genetic engineering ) …somehow werewolves also creep in and the entire palce starts resembling DISNEY LAND ( I wonder if someone will transorm into RAKHI SAWANT also …that should add to the scary quotient) .
The end result …the book is a scary/tragedy/love/fantasy …all rolled into one .
OK …we can stil tolerate that PROVIDED the girls can be a BIT quiet ...
“Edward Cullen ….aaaaaaaaaa”
OMG …Edward Cullen wallpapers , pillows , t-shirts …grrrrrrr .
They are putting us Harry Potter fans to shame I think . Well ….Carry on . The only problem is , if they get too much carried away BOYS will have a very HIGH STANDARD to compete with ( start sharpening your teeth.....ummm your abillities )
ADVICE ...1. next time you meet your girl-friend try kissing her on the neck first…that will excite her faster
2.Don’t ask “What’s your sun sign or favourite movie or hobbies ?” . Just go on straight away to “What’s you blood group ?” …They’ll fall in for you more easily !
