I just found out the other day that after i told my mum it was twilight fanfic with the names changed she only PRETENDED to lose interest and secretly bought and read the book and likes it. Whats more she then woudlnt let me say anything negative about it until id tried reaidng it too
So i read the first 70 pages and quickly realsied that its not a twilight fanfic, it is twilight just with the supernatural elements removed and the characters made older. Im very surprised the author hasnt been sued for breach of copyright especially given how the original twilight version is supposedly still up online.
Keeping in mind i barely got past the first chapter of twilight because i found the prose/Bellas narrative voice so annoyingly bad and most of my knowledge about the plot comes form the movie and a couple of my friends who are twilight fans but even i could see how the characters personalities and relationships to one another, and even their physical descriptions, were identical to twilights as well as certain plotpoints. Thats how blatantly obvious the book is. How has this woman not been sued yet?
The only conclusion i can draw is that Meyer must be more tolerant than Rowling and darn it im actually talking about twilight like its something worth defending :S
