US News and World Report - Why the Fascination with Twilight? - Rachel Pomerance

 – February 11, 2013  –– 

Few stories have captured the collective imagination quite like Twilight, Stephenie Meyer's series of vampire-themed novels, spun into movies that conjure the passion of young love. Twilight, of course, is fiction. Dr. Stephen Snyder, an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, underscores that point in discussing Edward's role in the documentary. "He never takes his eyes off her. He doesn't sleep. He watches her sleep. Nothing she ever does is boring to him. He never gets restless. He never says, 'Bella, why do you have to talk about that again?' He never wants to turn on the Jets," Snyder says, bemused. "It's all Bella, all the time."
