These aren't errors, per se, and I understand that being a slightly unromantic 26 year old, I'm not quite in the demographic that this sort of thing is meant to appeal to. But as an editor it kills me that no one ever found some chocolates and some tissues, took Meyer gently by the shoulders, and suggested that perhaps the series would read less like a self-indulgent personal fantasy and more like a real story if she just wrote it in the 3rd person.
I offer, as evidence, the Twilight movie! I'm not saying it's high-quality cinema -- I'd place it somewhere between Bring It On and Josie and the Pussycats on a list of films I probably wouldn't publicly admit to enjoying (nobody reads this blog, right?). But it's cute and sweet, and has genuinely intentionally funny moments, and the actors bring out Bella & Edward's desperate and stifled attraction. Not having to look at everything through Bella's mopey, self-deprecating head makes everything approximately 219% more realistic and sympathetic.
All that being said, yes I read all 4 books as quickly as I could get ahold of them, and talked to everyone including people who didn't care about what this and that character had said and done, and went and saw the movie on opening weekend with my best chick friend. Partially 'cause I wanted to know what all the fuss was about, partially 'cause I like keeping up with trends in youth lit and expressing righteous indignation about trends I dislike, and partially 'cause somehow, something about Meyer's story grabbed me by the ovaries and wouldn't let go. In a fun way, not in a creepy supernatural fetus way.
