Ņemot vērā vampīrbumu, ko izraisījusi Stefānijas Meijeres ”Twilight” sāga, nav nekāds brīnums, ka atradies kāds, kas izmanto iespēju par to arī pasmieties (galu galā, arī Potera grāmatām bija jāpārcieš Taņa Grotere un viņas lidojošais kontrabass). Nesen iznākusi parodija ”Nightlight”, kas droši vien liks dažam fanam sašutumā nošūpot galvu vai gluži pretēji – veselīgi pasmīnēt. Kamēr neesmu izlasījusi, sīkāk spriest baidos, tomēr jāsaka – pārāk daudz gan no parodijas negaidu, jo to kā žanru nemīlu. Tiesa – mani ieintriģēja kā varētu tikt attēlots Belles negadījums ar sniega bumbu 😀
Te nu arī pati grāmatas anotācija:
“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.
