Writer's Block: Crepuscular Drama

The Twilight movie comes out today. A lot of people are really excited about seeing Bella and Edward on the big screen. Others couldn't care less. Where do you fall on the issue?
I fall under "what the fuck is Twilight? Is that the new Harry Potter?

Whatever gets kids reading, I guess.

Normally I'd say whatever gets kids reading but...

I can't comfortably say that about anything that has all these young girls convinced that Bella and Edward's relationship is the EPITOME of romance. When Edward is quite the stalker and the relationship is by times downright emotionally abusive. Not to mention the whole getting married and having a baby right out of high school part.

Now, there's nothing wrong with books about fucked up relationships. They can be quite interesting. The problem is this is portrayed as not only healthy but IDEAL. And this series is ALL THE RAGE among teenage girls.

Also, the author is fucking NUTS.
