Now here's the thing that seems to be the 流行的 topic now. Harry Potter 图书 and the Twilight series. First I'd like to point out I do not call Twilight a "saga" is because well if 你 look it up 你 will know why. There's this whole big clash of the Twilight fanatics and the Harry Potter fanatics. I just need to vent out on how I feel about this situation.
Okay if 你 爱情 Twilight than that's fine with me. I respect your opinions, but to me the book was terrible. 你 can instantly tell that it was Meyer's first book she had ever written. I only hate the book, I don't hate 你 for liking it neither will I say 你 are stupid for liking it. Unless 你 become negative towards me and say I did not read the 图书 completely, that I'm a 苦 person, 或者 that I'm just jealous of Meyer. Etc, etc. I don't want to go on, cause I've been called many things; but fact is I just like Harry Potter. If 你 want to argue with me that Twilight is better, than 你 better have a legit argument.
Here's the thing I've been hearing about what Twilight 粉丝 had to say about Harry Potter. That there was no 爱情 in it at all and that Twilight had 更多 爱情 in it. Okay first let me define the term "love" 由 wikipedia.
Wikipedia: "Love is any number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection and attachment. The word 爱情 can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure ("I loved that meal") to intense interpersonal attraction ("I 爱情 my boyfriend"). This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes 爱情 unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional states."
So what they're say is 爱情 is not just couples' love. It means many things.
In Harry Potter there was a whole bunch of references of love. Harry's parent's 爱情 for him led to their deaths after trying to fend off Voldemort. Lily's, Harry's mother, 爱情 was the thing that helped him survive. Okay throughout the whole book, all his friends, he loved them all. That was what helped him eventually defeat the antagonist. Harry eventually 由 the 4th book began to have romantic interests with a few female characters. So 你 should understand what I mean.
Now in Twilight, Bella just noticed Edward because of his dazzling looks. She begins obsessing over this guy after just one glimpse. She knew nothing about him. When they do finally go out, she just keeps detailing how Edward looks. That's annoying, unnecessary details, just bores me to tears. It's amazing even how someone can finish the first book in a day. So Bella is just really focused on this guy's looks. She says nothing about Edward's personality, nothing. Um Edward is in fact pretty abusive and obsessed over Bella. Okay first for those girls out there. What kind of guy are 你 looking for? If 你 爱情 Twilight, probably just like Edward. No. 你 do not want to get involved with someone like Edward. Edward forcefully drags Bella into his car, whatever, I forgot. Now women 你 cannot let the guy take control of the relationship, neither should you. That's a bad relationship 你 want to get out of quickly. But because of Edward's looks, Bella is blinded to that fact Edward is not right for her. This is not love, it's lust. Lust which she will get over soon and she will be asking, “What did I ever see in this guy?”
It's pretty amusing, but Bella's situation reminds me of this story in mythology, something like that. Well Bella was in fact the 爱情 interest of two guys of course. Edward and Jacob. Edward was this awesome hot guy to her. Jacob was not so much, but he was the actual good one. Now in the 3rd book Bella had two choices, Edward 或者 Jacob. She chose Edward which really hurt Jacob. Now I find this ridiculous. Jacob was simply to good for Bella. He stood 由 her side in the 2nd book in her time of need, yet Bella had to go for the original man candy.
