High School Reporter :“Twilight” Saga more than just a mythical love story for girls

A very nice article called" Twilight Saga more than just a mythical love story for girls" by Richard Phillips , for his High School Paper "The Pearl Post"- Daniel Pearl Magnet High School Van Nuys, CA..  He talked about not only girls but even guys can like twilight saga too..

Whenever I say I like “Twilight,” I am often met with surprised looks. It can be hard to   understand why a guy would like such books. Yet, I greatly enjoyed reading the entire series from “Twilight” to “Breaking Dawn.” As the series continued, I found myself liking each book far better than the one before it. “Eclipse” is still one of my favorite books and I have reread it many times.

Now it might be confusing how romantic novels could appeal to teenagers and adults. What I personally got out of it was a unique insight as to how a girl thinks, which is something that guys aren’t too keen about. How often do we get to see a female perspective on natural and supernatural situations? Plus, it doesn’t hurt that there’s some intense vampire vs. werewolf fight scenarios.

Despite this, I have to admit I was very reluctant at first to start reading the books at all. Overall, the “Twilight” series was looked down upon and mention of it led to groans of distaste. However, my own stepbrother suggested I should read the series myself and make my own judgment on them.

I discovered that there were many elements in “Twilight” that I enjoyed. The plot twists that I did not see coming at all and very likeable characters. Now I was eager to continue reading since by this time all of them had already come out except for “Breaking Dawn.”

“New Moon” turned out to be even more enjoyable due to the new focus on Jacob who had a very small part in “Twilight.” Jacob quickly became my favorite character due to the multiple internal and external struggles he went through. 

Next in the saga was “Eclipse,” which had an interesting conflict between Edward and Jacob, who both vied for Bella’s attention. “Eclipse” had almost everything I wanted including an excellent plot line and a climatic battle. “Breaking Dawn” was a nice way to end everything using Jacob and Bella’s alternating viewpoints in certain sections. The tension building towards the end of “Breaking Dawn” was also fascinating and made me want to read more.

This conclusion to the series is what really made this series one of my favorites. I tend to judge a series a lot by the final book that ends all of it. I have incredibly high standards for the last book, which most don’t reach nowadays. 

“Breaking Dawn,” however, managed to reach these standards by the many emotions it brought out in me. It made me happy, sad, and one section was even a little creepy. “Breaking Dawn” impressed me and in my opinion was a great ending for the series.

I know that some of you, guys in particular, will probably not want to give the “Twilight” series a chance. Some of you are as reluctant as I was after hearing all the negative feedback they have gotten. However, you have to trust me. You might be surprised by how much you enjoy the stories. 

There are intriguing characters like Jasper, or Alice. The Volturi add a lot to the series as recurring villains. The ending to the series will definitely surprise many of you. The “Twilight” series has my approval. I believe that at least one of the books will have something of interest to both guys and girls who enjoy reading.
