I am a HUGE twilight fan. I can admit it. I get totally sucked into the completely unrealistic fantastical love story about teenage vampires. And I LOOOVE it. Here's my thing: I love these books- PEOPLE love these books- BECAUSE they AREN'T realistic. Isn't that why we read novels? To escape the total monotony of our human lives? Seriously, I wake up, work out, go to work, make dinner, go to sleep and do the exact same thing the next day. And I suspect I'm not the only one. This is why we love our escapes- our movies and book and crazy stories! These things make life FUN. So what I don't understand is why I'm reading whiny reviews about Stephenie Meyer's last book, Breaking Dawn. Just take a look at this:

"Disappointed fans say the book is rambling and poorly written, that plot elements are illogical – how can a vampire, the living dead, father a child? – that characters are askew and the book's tone is out of sync with the rest of the series."

DUUHHH. Of course the plot elements are illogical- that's what freaking makes this book amazing! And this person is concerned with whether its logical or not that a vampire can father a child? Well, after the first three books, CLEARLY this is the first unrealistic and illogical thing we've encountered... I mean, sure vegetarian vampires might exist, and I'm sure the werewolves are actually out there too, but Bella getting pregnant?? That is just WAY to unrealistic! Geez! What was Stephenie Meyer thinking??

Blah Blah Blah. The point is they all live happily ever after, we don't have to think to hard about it, and it's just a good read! Give it a break people! How realistic did you expect this thing to get?

I blame you for my vampire addiction. You gave me Twilight to read and I have never been the same since.

I TOTALLY agree...I don't care if the things that happen don't always make sense, because Stephenie Meyer always gives you everything that you hope for when you're reading. Her books are so fictionally satisfying, I hate that people complain! I would be so sad if we didn't get all those crazy things like Bella and Edward having a baby! Steph is a genius. =)

im pretty young to be reading it i guess, but you did suck me into it. it is ten times better than Harry Potter, and coming from me, trust me, that's a good book.
