USA Today Interviews Stephenie

Jul 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Site News

USA Today has an amazing interview with Stephenie Meyer that features some pretty interesting insights:

Details are scarce, but Meyer, who says she finds it hard to keep secrets, has released a few.

The most startling: Her editors asked her to tone down the violence in Breaking Dawn, which she did, and discussed putting an age warning on the book, which she says she supported, although it didn’t happen.

“I was for an age limit of 15 or 16 and a warning,” says Meyer. “I think the content is just a little harder to handle, a little bit more grown-up for really young kids. I have 9-year-old readers, and I think it’s too old for them. Some of it’s violence, and some of it’s just mature themes.”

    thats crazy! i hate when people say have to read this or you cant read that! its like my biggest pet peeve! I mean really- she her self read Jane Austin (sorry I know thats not spelled right) books at a young age, and usally that book is for collage students! She shouldn’t put an age limit just cause ‘its alittle heavers material’ I mean seriously how can she just dump younger fans! Thats outrages! Im sorry, that just what I think… :(

    I think thats great….the books dont need to be toned down..the more details the better and they shoulda did the age warning…..

  11. sou says:
