This article will, though, since that woman has read the book, thus saving me from my eyes bleeding. Because they would bleed, readers. Oh they would bleed.
From what I've heard and read and even seen in the movie (though I drank to enjoy that movie) the relationship between Bella and Edward is abusive. How Edward stalks her tells her what to do and say is very reminiscent of those Lifetime movies I try to avoid where the woman is being abused. To think that a ton of adolescent girls think this is what romance is supposed to be like sickens me. Let's raise our little girls to be weak and feeble and depend on men for everything! And let's raise these girls to want a man who will be overly protective and will have to know everything they do and say! Perfect plan!
I'm not saying that one book will cause a whole generation of girls to be like this. It's just a little messed up in my opinion.
Also, I'm extremely biased towards anything that's supposed to be sparkly and menacing. It's a formula that doesn't work for me.
