I am not saying i want the vampires i've already seen. we wouldn't get anywhere with that. The main points i am making when bringing up Anne Rice, is that i wish the quality of writing was good. they are ok books, i'll give you that. i never hated the books, they just were not my taste.
but with the rising popularity of the movie, the merchandise, and all these little kids thinking that this is what vampires are like, that is what bugs me. and quite honestly, the writing of Twilight is.. let's say, easier, to read. therefore it has brought much more fans to its domain.
anywho, the main point i'm trying to make, is i have no problem with a vampire love story. actually, the reason i first picked it up is because it was a love story for a change. i just wish she would've depicted it a little better. like i said, how many times can edward 'smile darkly', or 'look beautiful, but dark".
i wouldn't be pissed at the series if it fully deserved the attention it got. if it was written well, interesting, and if she took it up a notch i would probably like it.
Dasike: in the my story i depicted in my first post, it was kind of hard to ignore anyone.Especially the squealing fangirls.
sadly, the vampire thing has gotten way overrated. there are so many stories for teens out there. the cool thing about Anne Rice is that she didn't write it for kids. Because they are vampires for Christs Sake.
Unrelated: i miss vampire stories where they had fun..not hate themselves for being a vampire, but be happy in eternal life. (Fright Night, The Lost boys.)
(by the way, if you haven't seen Bram Stoker's Dracula, read Anne Rice, read Bram Stoker, and seen some more of classic vampires, dont argue. because you haven't seen the other side of the spectrum).
