(Until Breaking Dawn is released, of course.)
I thought this was an interesting interview with Stephenie Meyer, hosted by a Mormon Arts blog. They asked several questions that have been running through my own head--where Stephenie's Mormonism intersects with her writing, etc. Considering the saga's popularity, I'm surprised at the absence of Christians commenting on Meyer's worldview. Most seem to dismiss the books when the word "vampire" is mentioned. I'm not saying "inverted archetype" is an invalid objection. Actually, it's my big problem with the novels. Some fans see the Cullens as a metephor for the Christian experience, putting to death sinful inclinations, etc. They fail to recognize that in the end, vampire natures are not overcome. Instead, Bella forsakes her humanity to become (in Jacob Black's words) a bloodsucker.
But I'm still wondering where the Mormonism discussions are.
