On Our Bella, Ourselves

I would be inclined to agree with this were it not for the fact that while there are millions of girls like Bella, there are no boys like Edward Cullen. Therein lies the problem. There are controlling addicts, yes, but Bella-girls don't get a happy ending with those kinds of men. Meyer can acknowledge all sorts of common truths, but she missed out one of the most basic points: you don't really get "rescued" by that type of boy. You just think you've been rescued...for a while (and most of the rescuing you require is because of the problems he causes in the first place).
