All I want for Christmas ….

December 23, 2009

The twilight saga has crystallised something for me. Who would have thought that a story about an immortal being who unconditionally loves a flawed and very normal young girl would become so popular? And that popularity is not limited to teenagers, but to older folks as well (“twilight mums”). The story lines over the saga are a mix of Pride and Prejudice (Edward is the new Mr Darcy), Romeo and Juliet (New Moon), bits of Wuthering Heights – not original concepts, but storylines that endure. Yet, I remember feeling like Bella, knowing that somehow, impossibly, an immortal being loved me, no matter what.
