However difficult it is to believe – especially for the millions of Twihards – the favourite vampire saga, “Twilight,” has made many people think that perhaps the hot book should be prohibited.
In a study by the American Library Association in 2009, the series of “Twilight” was fifth among the most requested books by the public to be banned in public libraries. It is accompanied by: the novels of “Harry Potter” and the American classic “To Kill a Mocking Bird”.
One can argue that a book has not made a big culture shock if you have not upset someone at some point, and if that is the case, then it really was inevitable that “Twilight” appeared on the list someday. And the reason why the respondents asked to Stephenie Meyer’s books were banned, the answer is not very surprising – people complained about the writing sexually explicit and offensive language.
Of course “Twilight has been banned and no doubt some day happen. But that does not mean that people will vote against him in these surveys. “To Kill a Mockingbird” was published in 1960 and still receives criticism.
Sexually explicit and offensive language? Excuse me?! Have they read the books? LOL
