For all the Twilight fans, me included, New Moon is just around the corner. Thinking of going to the midnight showing if I can get one of my kids to face the embarrassment of going with their mom. And I doubt that. Maybe I'll take a friend.
Anyway, this post is about what does Twilight have that draws fans in of a variety of ages? Male and female? And yes, I know several guys that like the book and/or series.
I was visiting someone's blog over the weekend and they mentioned about the over 30 crowd liking Twilight (sorry I can't remember whose. I visited a lot this weekend.) Anyway, they said something about it and it made me wonder why. Why is there a craze amongst the over 30 crowd--mothers, married, and singles?
And I have come up with why I think.
It is all about Edward.
Here is a guy who is super intelligent, caring, willing to do anything for the woman he loves, protective (although a bit over-protective), rich (of course, has had plenty of time to acquire money), not to mention sizzling, smoking hot hot hot!!!! Top it with being an immortal, and you got something better than a cherry on a sundae.
I will be honest when I say I have not had a real crush on any guy since my early twenties. And this guy lives within the pages of a book. Although don't get me wrong, Robert Pattinson is pretty nice to look at too.
It's like this fictional character woke a part of me that I had forgotten about.
So what about the guys who like the novel. What about it draws them in?
Again, I think it is all about Edward.
Only this time it revolves around a more James Bond thing---Every guy wants to be him, every woman wants to be with him. And they want to be the type of guy that would draw women to them like flies to sugar. :)
What do you all think? I would love to read your comments on the subject.
