Quote of the day: VAMPIRES

February 5, 2013

Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what was the last book you hated? Do you remember the last book you put down without finishing?

I’m not a big fan of the “Twilight” series. I can’t get past the premise, which is that a group of wealthy, sophisticated, educated, highly intelligent, centuries-old vampires, who can do pretty much whatever they want, have chosen to be . . . high school students. I simply cannot picture such beings sitting in a classroom listening to a geometry teacher drone on about the cosine. I have more respect for vampires than that.
