Twilight has a huge number of die-hard fans as well as a huge number of haters. It is strange to find something these two groups might both enjoy, but here it is: Nightlight – A Twilight Parody Book. Fans will enjoy getting more Twilight, even if it is in the form of a humorous parody, while haters will enjoy that Nightlight is making fun of Twilight.
I’ll admit that I’ve never read any books in the Twilight Trilogy nor have I seen the movies. However, I know a lot of fans who’ve read each book cover to cover many times and seen each movie on the first day of release and multiple times thereafter. I’ve seen plenty of media coverage, plus I’ve read How Twilight Works on The Oatmeal, so I think I’m part of the group that will enjoy reading Nightlight much more than reading Twilight.
About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.
And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight.
Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?
Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.
