DAUGHTER, 15, FINALLY BORED WITH “TWILIGHT” AND INTO “WUTHERING HEIGHTS”from ew.com:
My daughter began devouring, and then re-devouring, the Twilight novels back when she was 12. Stephenie Meyer had yet to finish the series and, at that point, the only people who had heard of the books were a million obsessive fans, plus a nation’s worth of grateful bookstore owners. (Entertainment Weekly actually began covering the Twilight phenom so early because my daughter’s enthusiasm suggested there was a big audience out there that the national media was ignoring. By the way, she thinks the movies are lame, so please don’t blame her for EW’s admittedly thorough coverage.) Anyway, my daughter — I’ll refer to her here as Llama, because she thinks llamas are hilarious for some reason — waited for each successive Twilight book in the same ecstatic agony that Bella waited for Edward. Like the Harry Potter books, Meyer’s novels became comfort objects as much as anything else: There was always one in her possession.
Anyone got their passports ready for a trip to Indonesia? LOL! Surely, some enterprising restaurateur in the continental US could come up with the same idea and offer something like that. The menu selections on that Indonesian menu don’t really jive with my impressions of Edward and Bella, though. Hungarian Goulash doesn’t really conjure images of Bella in my mind.
I’m glad to see an article reflecting the impact that Stephenie Meyer’s books have had on young readers. Much like J.K. Rowling, her works have inspired a generation to read. Girls who skipped reading Harry Potter found a love of reading with the Twilight series.
