Ok,lets go back a bit to a show I am sure many of may have watched, Buffy. Lets compare, Buffy was 16 and her love interest, Angel, was over 200 and was NOT a teenager when turned, well into his late 20's. And to my recollection people had no problem with that relationship or the show, I know a lot of people who liked it.
So I ask which is creepier, a 300 year old dude in a 27 years old body crushing on a 16 year old or a 90 year old dude in a 17 years old body crushing on a 17 /18 year old girl?
And yes, Angel "stalked" and watched Buffy as well. So um, again I don't see the issue. In fact the first thing my sister said after she watched the movie, besides commenting of how teen angsty it was and not well done, was that he [Edward] was young.
And also obvious none of you have seen the movie "Let the Right One In"? Lets just say that its a movie about a vampire (in 12 years old androgynous male body) that has a "relationship" with a human 12 year old boy. And its received very high praise/awards.
So really this book,and the romance aspects in it, are quite tame and banal. If you ask me.
