if you want the best vampires then watch true blood the books are not that good. its the best because it has no shortage of sex and violence plus the writers kept the “vampires die in sunlight” only it goes quicker with age of an vampire. any other vampire media will not compare
Did you know that Twilight actually hits all 15 warning signs for domestic violence? Edward shows all the classic signs of being a wife beater.
I was talking about how much I had this series with a librarian and she was telling me about her friend who’s a trained therapist analyzed it and realized that Meyer hates being married and being a mother.
i would but it doesn’t have a TV show………and true blood is so much easier to come by and vampire diaries is less “adult content” then true blood but its still up there ^^ although it doesn’t have vampires dying in the sun but take away their witch crafted ring and then they die in the sun.
Twilight is so harmful to teen girls. I can see the reason they like it, having not had a boyfriend or attention from a male, but changing your species is NOT what young impressionable girls should see.
And I agree with Jami. I read stuff about Meyers life growing up and it was a fairytale. She had a great husband who wanted to marry her, and great family, but that wasn’t enough for her. From what I read, it sounded like she didn’t want to be married.
I really can’t wait till the publishing industry stops putting money and profits over good story telling.
There’s no such thing as “true” or “real” vampire literature. It’s all indulgent fantasy, which is fine. There are only gradations in quality of writing. The Twilight books read like an eighth grade girl saying over and over, “Unicorns ARE real, I know they are, and they LOVE me!!!!”
Rice’s prose is precise and measured, her pacing is good, her characters multi-dimensional, and her dialogue is believable and engaging. I actually consider her storytelling better than Stoker’s (which is still far, far better than the Twilight crap). Since there are no “real” vampires, though, there is no “real” vampire literature.
My favorite vampire book is “The Secret Life of Laszlo, Count Dracula,” by Roderick Anscombe (though it’s not a true vampire novel). The guy can flat write.
I get that the whole “I’ll give you immortality if you marry me” thing is an analogy for not having premarital sex. The irony, of course, is that hollywood turns right back around and uses a bunch of half-naked guys to sell ABSTINENCE to your daughters. Shame on the industry, and shame on the parents for being so gullible.
