"Twilight" resonates so strongly with women because it plays into a world of fantasy. From a very young age, many young girls watch Disney movies in which every princess is rescued by her prince. Edward rescues Bella in every since. He first rescues her from her mundane life, then from the critcism of his fellow vampires, then from viscious ware wolves. He makes her feel safe and know her value. Each women wants to feel this way and in many cases, "Twilight" takes them away from their alternate reality.

It seems to me that it takes women away from their actual reality to an alternate reality

I mean, vampires are an alternate reality, right?

Or then again, maybe not...

Javier Carvajal

This falls under fantasy but a bit more though. The hotest guy in school who happens to be a vampire falls in love with a ordinary girl or an outcast of the town. This is like a twisted Cinderella story. It does still bring people in the threaters to see it.

Dennis Elam

Hmm, I need to go rent the series to this point, thanks

Yesenia Banuelos

Elam, you have to rent the series. It is a great and intersting book. I love the twilight series, of course more women bought the book because as you read the book one imagins to be in Bella's postion. Who doen't want to date the hottest guy in the school and be involved in all the drame between Jacob and Edward.
