Well the time has come to discuss the vampires in Twilight. I figured I should discuss them before going any further in order to come back to them in future discussions. I am finding it difficult to continue without being able to relate other vampires to those in Twilight.
I started reading the Twilight saga after the third book came out, and I will admit I became addicted. But I mean come on, sparkling vampires. You don’t need to be a fan of the vampire to realize that is extremely cheesy. Not only do they glitter, but there is never any mention of fangs, and how can you have a vampire with no fangs. Overall I felt that these vampires lack any real substance, and they are far too safe.
Granted there are no rules for vampire portrayal and I do believe this creative freedom is what has helped to keep the vampire immortal in popular culture. I guess even the vampire needs to keep up with the times and appeal to different audiences.
