Twilight Vs. Anita Blake Vampire Hunter
Dispite the many comparisons to Twilight (that horrible fanfiction that makes “My immortal” look good), these books are not the same. The authors are vastly different and have different ways of writing. Where Stephanie Meyer is a Mormon that decided to make Bella a whiny little kid inside of a
teenager/mother’s body in all 4 books, Laurell K. Hamilton started to lessen the Mary Sue of Anita Blake.
Anita finally is learning being Bisexual is fine due to the events of Bullet. She’s learning the feedings aren’t just for healing. She is finally breaking out of the role that many think she was going to be in the latest books.
I think why people compare her is because of Jean-Claude and Richard. Later on though this really changes. I mean it took about 5 books or more for Anita to choose Jean-Claude, and after that she was gaining a harem of sexy men any woman could ask for. The bathtub scene has to be the most memorable in my reading history. Wonderful descriptions down to the junk.
Did I just say that… ugh.
I have a theory for the fans of either book series. Would you rather read a book series that has sex and is better reading, or read a book about a whiny brat and the movies that it made making vampires worse then what Anne Rice did? (She became a born again christian and disowned those wonderful vampire books she made after said event.)
Anne Rice had wonderful descriptions of Lestat, Louis, and the others. I loved Interview with a Vampire and Queen of the Damned. The movie forms were even better. (Mhhh… Lestat)
I would bet you Twilight fans are just jealous.
I admit the sex is much in Incubus Dreams, but after that it started to have a lessened effect in the book. Once Bullet came out and the sex in that was meaningful like in The Killing Dance, I was happy and wanted to re-read it. Richard wasn’t a bad guy. He was fed up. He wanted Anita to love him.
At this point in the books I would think they fuck every so often.
So can’t we just all get along and read about our vampires and were-creatures? Let’s not focus on the stalker fairies.
Also… Richard breaks a better bed than Edward anyday.
