I hate it when the so called love had been shown to an excessive amount in the story...on that way the story no longer remains a love story, IMO. I mean love is something that we [readers] need to figure out from the character's personality, thoughts and actions, not something that is ought to be written on every single pages of the book so that the readers are forced to believe that "hmm yes these two characters really love each other".
'sides, Love [to me] is something pure that deals with the soul of two individuals, not on someones "sparkling" look.
On that way Harry Potter is a way more matured love story (a true love story I might say) than any other book that only describes 'love' through how much one feels for another solely for his handsome looks.
That's not the definition of true love in my opinion, of course!
I agree...the whole "dazzling" and "spakling" thing about Edward leaves me in splits.
I mean, that's called obsession not love...although I agree that part of love involves obssesion but that is not EQUAL to love. If a parallel is to be drawn with Bella's love for Edward then I would say it is like Romilda's Vane love towards Harry
And also the fact that Bella is ready to leave everything behind for Edward (even her studies etc.) is a bit scary...also at the age of 19 or something she is pregnant with his child...I mean seriously
But that's the extent of their love. She can't wait to fit in and not have someone else take care of her. She wants to be the one taking care of, if not him, then at least herself. I see your point of view and she shows many signs of not wanting to change such as when she thinks about her parents. She can't bear to leave behind some of the people she is SO close to.
LOL...I'm not even 19 yet and that child thing scares me. She never wanted to be a mother and never thought she would have to be one. She made lemonade with the lemons that were tossed at her, though.
The mother part is the only one I truly understand...I think. Because the rest of it is crazy. I don't think I can ever love anyone so much or anything but I would NEVER abort a child, so in that sense I was with her. PLUS, they were married, so it wasn't like she was doing something wrong.
Even though I think that marriage is crazy at that young age...
Wow...I think I just contradicted myself.
But I think there's something to looking at both angles and not think of YOURSELF as the main character but think of her as Bella...it makes for an interesting read and a spectacular love story.
I don't think I offended you but, if I did, that wasn't my intention.
