Ok, so this is something that's been getting under my skin for a while and it's the fact that just about everyone I meet is in love with this piece of crap excuse for literature that some woman with no life crapped out of her dead generic imagination. This book has no depth or originality what so ever, and yet sadly it's manage to permeate itself into the minds of shallow teenage girls and make them think they actually read something that didn't come from the children's section of the library. Twilight was probably the worst investment of time and memory space that I've ever made. It seems to me like it was written by a fourteen year old high school girl with no real life, no real imagination, and obviously no idea of what romance really is. I regret reading this book because I think somewhere in between the "sparkly vampires" and the all too occasional "Isn't this the plot of that crappy chick flick I saw last summer?" I kept asking myself, I think my IQ went down about 20 points. All in all, Stephanie Meyer took some of my favorite words and turned them into bad fan fictions that no one, but the most vapid waist of space, in their right mind would ever publish.
Don't read Twilight. Don't look at it. Don't think about it.Don't acknowledge it. Let it sit on the book store shelves and get eaten by termites; or better yet, don't continue the genocide of innocent trees by printing more of these things that put all literature to shame. Have I gotten my point across?
I agree. The Twilight series and The Host both had the main character preforming self mutilation, and Bella is the most brain-dead retard ever. If a raging vampire is coming straight at you, you don't scream EDDIE, EDDIE, WHERE ART THOU EDDIE?!
I mean jeez, shes like "HMM, MAYBE I'LL GO BREAK JAKE'S HEART AGAN, AND RUN AWAY WITH A COVEN OF VAMPIRES AND BREAK MY MOM AND DAD'S HEART, HMM, EDWARD SHOO IS FINE!"
Stephine Meyer needs to learn to write about girls with a friggin brain.
Twilight's popularity is a representation of this nations standards. I find that the quality of the writing as well as the level of originality is lacking. I will judge someone for what they like and what they don't like but also for their reasons why. Some might disagree with judging someone for their likes and dislikes however I find that it's nature. We all do it.
As to your comment, I agree that it is immoral to dictate to people what they can and cannot read but I cannot agree that the popularity of the book as well as the writers sudden acclaim are not to go without criticism.
Also, I recommend that you say exactly what you feel. What does that mean: 'sort of low'? Does that not also imply sort of high as well? Please understand that this question is rhetorical.
