In the Wake of New Moon

Here's a few letters from the mX (Melbourne) concerning the Twilight phenomena.

New Mooner
writes ("In the Twilight of Their Opinion", Monday November 23, 2009, p. 24):
Anna Brain (For What It's Worth, mX, Thu) [Brain is one of the paper's pop culture columnists -ed.], a negative review of New Moon? How unoriginal. People of all ages have a real love affair with these books and movies. Surely you felt the atmosphere of opening night? Millions of people can't be wrong...right?
However, G doesn't share this sentiment ("For Real",
Monday November 23, 2009, p. 24):
Anna Brain, at last someone who's read and seen Twilight and sees it for what it is. What I also find scary is how some girls might end up in abusive relationships and not do anything about it, because it's what Edward does.
It's also caused some frustration for David ("Twi Not", Monday November 23, 2009, p. 24):
Anyone would think that Twilight New Moon was the second coming of Jesus. If I hear one more thing about it, I'll murder someone. Who cares?
And lastly, B. Stoker chimes in with his two cents ("Gurgling", Friday November 27, 2009, p. 19):
Tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, climate change, Twilight movie and its fans - the world really is going down the drain.

That quote made me chuckle ^^
I'd rather face a flood than a flock of Twilight fan girls who thought I was keeping them from Edward xD

Glad you got a kick out of it, Alice!

As with any extreme fandom, they sure can get scary. Or so I've heard. Rob Pattinson knows it firsthand and you can read about other acts of alleged Twilight-related violence here.
