Not always happy but always happy to be Catholic.
I just wanted her to hurry up and stake him already.
Ahhh, Julie! Say it ain't so! In the kitchen, in the pew, at the movie theater and bookstore, you've never let me down until now. With a deep reading of Twilight, Stephanie Meyer has some interesting things to say about God, our search for him, and his love of us. Of course it's from a Mormon perspective and the Volturi and the evil blood-drinking Catholics, but I can forgive her even that for creating Edward and Bella. If you are interested, here are some articles for serious readers of 'Twilight.'http://www.hogwartsprofessor.com/breaking-dawn-part-1-blog-re-cap-countdown/http://www.hogwartsprofessor.com/breaking-dawn-movie-countdown-2/
Renee, I'm so sorry to show my feet of clay! :-DFact is, Meyer's writing is something I just can't abide. The style alone is ... well, we'll just have to agree to disagree. :-)Not to worry. I'm about to blast a very popular series that was recommended by another friend. Hopefully she won't hold it against me! :-)
Julie, I'm a middle school teacher and two of my teammates can't get through a sentence without using the word 'like' twice. Needless to say, I'm used to sifting through the dross to find nuggests of truth and beauty. :P Meyer's pedestrian prose doesn't phase me.Hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Hi Rene,We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope you did too.I understand your point about sifting through the dross to find the nuggets of truth. Definitely. However, there is so much gold that I haven't read ... from Dickens to Steinbeck to The Reapers are the Angels, that I will not willingly waste my time on dross if I don't have to.Now, if I were a middle school teacher, I'd have done it as you did ... you've got to be able to talk the same language as your students. :-)Luckily for me, I ain't! ha!
You know, I didn't think Edward's behavior could get any creepier. I was wrong, in the book/movie creepy, taken out of context, even creepier.
