Ah Twilight. Helping teenage girls make the all important choice between Beastiality and Necrophelia :p
Disclaimer: I haven't read the books, but I have heard from a friend who is an english major that they are poorly written. Other then that, I really have no comment.
I seriously wish people would stop holding up Meyer as if she's the prime example of a vampire fiction author.
Honestly, a vampire protagonist CAN be full of awesome. Case in point: Alucard from Hellsing
I don't even have anything against a lover becoming a vampire for her beloved. Personally, I see that as a way of sharing someone's burden (albeit tragic).
What sucks really is Meyer's style. It's fanfiction prose at its worst.
And before people accuse me of being a vampire fanboy, I am far from that. In fact, you're talking to a guy who fantasizes himself as a wizard who kills criminal vampires for pleasure. I actually don't like them all that much but I am certainly not blind to their shining moments (no subtle pun intended as Meyer's version of a vampire is certainly NOT one of them).
