Twilight and Philosophy book. I picked up Twilight and Philosophy because I have wanted to better understand the phenomenon of vampires and escape fiction in modern culture-just because I don't care for it doesn't mean that it is meaningless-and I reasoned that a book of such widespread popularity must have struck some chord of universal human or undead experience.

This book was very difficult to read - not due to the writing style, but the reasoning. Many of their arguments were made in convoluted, over-complicated ways when they could have been stated simply and succinctly. There was also a fair bit of repetition between chapters. I was left with the impression that the authors were trying to stretch a short essay into a full book so as to make some money. If you really want to read this book, try to locate a lend-able copy. Don't spend your own dollars on it.

This is a good tool for uncovering some of the underlying issues in the Twilight series. Especially good are the essays about the internal story in contrast to what it looks like from the outside - issues of domestic abuse and power are well addressed.

Although I'm probably a little older than the typical Twilight fan demographic, I found this compilation of essays interesting and helpful for thinking about the characters and especially for exploring other vampire/werewolf lore, literature, and philosophy that fell through the cracks in college. Essays in this book give you concise background on writers (like the Brontes, Lord Byron)in a easy and conversational style. I actually found the footnotes good for tracking down other books, biographies, and videos which I have checked out at the library or (of course!)ordered on amazon.com. Literature and philosophy courses in college would probably be more engaging if professors lectured like the contributors to this book write.

I bought this as a gift for a friend who is a Twlight fan and she loved it. It's not a very large book which makes it an easy read.

I love how Amazon lets you look into books before you purchase them. I was interested in this book because I love the "Twilight" series. This was a great book and Amazon recomended it to me because I have purchased many "Twilight" items on here.

I bought this book expecting it to delve more into why we are obsessed with Twilight. It's not what I expected, but it is still interesting. Most of the chapters were written by college philosophy professors. If I were going to teach philosophy to highschool or college students, I wouldn't hesitate to use this book. Some of the topics sound almost tongue-in-cheek as the author seriously discusses, for example, the morality of reading minds. Obviously, reading minds is not something we all need to wrestle with, but the approach would be a great teaching tool since it would keep kids interested. I enjoyed it. But only get it if you like reading about philosophy.
