So, I’m having this discussion on twitter with a few folks, but now I need to know your opinion.
Who is creepier: Edward Cullen (from Twilight and teenage girls’ imaginations) or Christian Grey (from Fifty Shades of Grey). I just finished Fifty Shades and while I commend the author on her great success and ability to hook such a large audience (including myself!), I’m a little, tiny bit perturbed that a control freak like Christian Grey is a romantic hero. And that this seems to be a PATTERN in recent books. See also: Twilight.
Christian wants to: control what Ana eats, wears, and does, who she talks to, and he hits her. Yup, he hits her. It’s supposed to be “playful” but I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT.
Edward: watches Bella sleep unbeknownst to her, stalks her, breaks into her bedroom, and, oh yeah, he’s like, 105 and has a crush on her and she’s 17.
See what a tough choice this is?
My answer is Edward, because of the age difference, but don’t get me wrong: THEY ARE BOTH CREEPY CREEPSTERS.
What about you?
