Uggghhhh. I just saw a comment on Yahoo answers saying:

"Twenty years ago, Ann Rice gave generations the Vampire Lestat series. It was more tailored to the tastes of the eighties with gore, androgony, violence and big hair and clothes.

With Twilight, it is time for the current generation to enjoy a romance in their own way, with less window-dressing, more depth to the characters, more grunge and more humanity."

(emphasis mine)

I just. Why??

I admit I have only read the 1st 3 Vampire Chronicles 'cause according to all reports they are the only good ones. But I am pretty sure that the characters of the Vampire Chronicles are deeper than 'look at me I fall over a lot!' Bella and 'I am so boring it hurts' Edward.

Yargh.



Also, i'm pretty much obsessed with The Maccabees

I'd say that they're pretty much as bad as each other. -g- Anne Rice's stories are a lot more complex in plot, and a lot more happens (you need a microscope to find plot in Twitlight) but they're still pretty abysmal, and the characters are awful. Louis is pretty much an even more melodramatic Edward - it's painful.
