A while back, when I was doing some research for this post, I watched The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. It had been awhile since I’d read the books or seen the movies. Plus, I’d since come to the conclusion that while the story is good for what it is – romance – the writing wasn’t very good because the end of the series was very anticlimactic. And Bella and Edward never fight. How realistic is that? It’s not. At all.
However, as I watched the movie, all of the feelings I had while reading the books came back to me and hit me like a ton of bricks. It was weird; I wasn’t expecting anything of the sort. Maybe it’s because when I read the books, I was at my father’s house, and they kept me sane during that time. I didn’t quite know what to do with myself after I finished reading.
Even the question of “Why didn’t Bella choose Jacob?” popped in my head, even though I know perfectly well why she chose Edward. It’s because when you’re around people who make you feel good, you don’t give up on those relationships. Or when you’re doing something that makes you feel good about yourself, you don’t give up on it just because it gets hard.
I might not like the writing so much anymore, but I guess The Twilight Saga still means something to me.
