Review of "Nighlight" by the Harvard Lampoon
"Nighlight" is stupid. I didn't find it very funny, just stupid.
Belle is a controlling, vain, out of control young woman. She believes that every man that she meets is in love with her. She meets Edwart at school and decides that he is a vampire, so she tries to mold him into the character of a vampire. After all, he did save her from a snowball.
Edwart suffers from anxiety attacks and to put it bluntly, he is a major wimp. He thinks that Belle is role playing all of the vampire stuff and plays along.
There is a vampire in this story, I won't tell you who he is in case you decide to read the book. He is over the top as a vampire. The vampire prom is "stupid". I think stupid is my favorite word of the day.
I gave this two stars. If you want to read this book, I hope you like it better than I did.

To be fair, my 13 year old daughter liked this one better than I did. I think the biggest problem with this book is that they tried to hard. They swung the pendulum totally in the other direction though. The book was forced. I have read reviews of others who have given this book four stars. You can take my opinion, or try it for yourself.ReplyDelete
