I just really think that the plots are not well thaught out and that Meyer simply just cant write ( has anyone else notised that she tries to use big word but they dont end up making any sence( its actually rather funny)
I know that ill probably get like hazed for saying this but does any one agree?
let me get this straight. you can praise something, but if someone starts stating their own opinion that they think its mediocre, they're open for being attacked? excuse me, but that's bullshit.
this is like school superlatives, where the most artistic kid doesn't get voted most artistic simply because the other person has more friends on their side. you want a vampire story with romance? read dracula! i read it in 7th grade and it blew my mind.
god, i get the same shit from eragon fans who think paolini's the best damn writer in the world. reading his book was PAINFUL!!! i didn't read twilight cuz i pre-read a few pages in a book store and it had the same effect. vampires that sparkle?!?! are you kidding me????? that's no vampire; that's just some bishonen guy afraid of getting his perfect pale skin tanned and damaged by UV rays.
well im alright with you and other hardcore fans having this opinion, quite honestly im a super fan of many things that i am the first to admit are generally pretty mediocre if not down right bad (harry potter for instance, the plot is pretty unimaginative and the caricters are one demetialnal and dont evan get me started on the writing but none the less i am a huge fan) i tend to be a literary snob, ill admit, but i think that people should be open to multipal views/opinions and having in depth descussions about them , so thanks for the warning, but i dpont think it was nessicary, i knew what i was getting into when i made that post (and this one)
I havent read it but I don't think I'd like it...my sister told me every single detail....I'm too much of a Harry Potter fan to be totally fasinated by these I guess...I don't think I like em...I mean how can he be a vampire if he can go out in the sun and whatnot...it just doesnt make sence...I need things to be traditional when it comes to this...it was as if she wanted this story to happen so badly she just changed whatever she wanted...I feel she needed to work around the obstacle...not totally remove it...
And the characters need growth...Bella is the same through all the books...I mean not exactly the same but these things shes going through need to make her grow mentally spiritually and personality wise...if that makes any sense...in the end shes still just the same old insecure Bella that I can't stand
I listened to Twilight as an audio book and I honestly don’t think that I would have made it all the way through by reading it.
It would be interesting to find out how many times the word ‘beautiful’ is used as a description of Edward. One would think that after being alive for as long as he has that he would have a more complex character and personality and not need to fall back on the superficial quality of just being beautiful. Beautiful is boring, I want to see something deeper.
yes i agree, the plots are... well just plain pathetic, and they are badly writen...
however, i do really like the series. it's the type of book that is like pure fluff... and it's really good to read when you're sick and you head is all fuzzy and so you cant think enough to realize that the book is crap and you just end up being all 'aww that's so sweet' and you get a warm fuzzy feeling and then can fall asleep and the warm fuzzy feeling can match the fuzzyness in your brain which stops you from noticing you are reading complete rubbish.
