The end of the series. Please. Why did she even bother tostart the series with that ending?
I mean, seriously (SPOILER ALERT IN CASE YOU DIDN"T SEE IT THE FIRST TIME!!!!!!!!!!) Why? Nobody dies at all. They assemble a huge army of "vapires" and the the Volturi come along and go, "Oh, you can't have a baby vampire kid. They're Dangerous." Then the cullens are all "Oh, well, it's not a baby vamprie kid. She'll grow up and be a normal vampire, but she's not poisonous. She wont' be a problem." Then the Volturi don't care "Oh, ok, that's ok. We see your other little vampire dude. Yeah, whatevs, no problem. Sorry we bothered y'all. Go back to your own continents now." then they all live happily ever after. END IT LIKE THAT! SAY "AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER!" Why not just scream it from a mountain side: "Enough people adore my books that I'm gonna stop caring and leave the end plotless, pointless, and put as little effort into everything as I can. Who cares if it looses any literary merit, I want everyone too live happily ever after and nobody ever dies."
Seriously. That ending. I should should shut up now. I'll save you the full lecture and yelling. Man. That makes me mad. I'm also mad that I liked them before they got popular.
Twilight undermines women. Period.
In my school newspaper a few months ago a senior named Garrison Copeland wrote an amazing article entitled "Twilight a terrible excuse for a novel," in which he made a number of truly amazing points about the horrors of Twilight. If any of you are curious about reading it, here is the link:
Anyways, as far as I'm concerned, I agree with him. The twilight series is essentially a series of novels with a shallow story, mormon values underlining the superficial plot (ever notice how as soon as Stephanie Meyer found out people actually liked Jacob, she made him "force" himself on Bella? Jacob is the earthly immoral influence on Bella while Edward is the "pure, godlike creature.") that encourages women to be spineless, worthless, helpless, obsessive piles of pachycephalic worthlessness.
Any woman who enjoys these books has either overlooked the values they encourage or has completely skewed ideas of the female role in modern society. In case you didn't know, here in America we earned the right to vote in the early 1900s.
Stephanie Meyer, I give you the full right to believe what you believe. I would never wish to take that from anyone. But when your writing is making a significant impact on the literary world, please, be careful what you write. I'd hate for anyone to get the wrong idea.
