Review: Twilight

Written by Atropos - 3.0

It's a shame Twilight series has become so overly popular among young teenage population because this has lead to the fact that ever even admitting having read the book or discussing about it is something to classify being somewhat... well those of you who are not in love with Edward presumably understand. What I'm saying is that the series has become a synonym for sugary teenage love story. This is shame because those people can't see the quite audible fantasy behind the scene of 'the love story of millennia'. Putting aside the romance and the very questionable horror (which I don't seem to find at all) Twilight series has good ingredients for good or at least passable low fantasy: It has quite enough required fantasy elements and epic battle and a whole lot of psychological analysis (more or less adequate) and philosophy of life. And this is the point I enjoy most in the series - it's unbelievably fun to argue with the book concerning points in a view of life with what I disagree with. Truly it shouldn't be that popular and I wish I had read it long before they made the mistake of making a movie of the book and thus ruining it completely.
