I am doing a little survey for a paper and since this is the most active group i am in, here it is :)

Have you read the twilight series and/or watched the movies? do you plan on ever doing so? What is your opinion of the relationship of Jacob,Bella and Edward and each as individuals in both the movies and books? Based on your perceptions of their relationship, is it one you would want for yourself or your child ( not involving the supernatural, just the base relationship and how it would be irl)

I read twilight before it was famous. ( I'm mega book worm) I was in 10th grade I've seen the movies but on tv I dnt pay to see movies I know what's going to happen. the way the book is set up is very disappointing. almost like the character of the child was introduced so that Jacob wouldn't End up alone. the love triangle doesn't really make sense because its obvi she will end with Edward. n about the paret child relationship .... what relationship. lol felt like the author rushed to end the book thus ruining the whole series.

What I meant was how  would you feel if say you had  a daughter who was with a person like edward? Jacob? Also the dynamic between the characters of bell edward and jacob. It seems to me that bella really is a blank character, controlled by the other two. but I was just wondering what others thought.

Read it, didnt like it, will never let my daughter touch it. Did you know Edward and Bella's relationship meets all 15 signs of a domestic abuse relationship? Why on earth would I want my kid to think that if her boyfriend left her it is ok to jump off a cliff. Oh no I will not allow that book at all horrible female role model. Give me Hermione Granger and Ginny Weasley any day. Their boys left them and they defeated a dark lord.

but what about the actual relationships involved? do you think young readers ( really young, the books were very simple) look at the relationship between bella and edward or bella and jacob as "real"?
