Who else hates Twilight and everyone about it?

All I'm getting is "Team Edward or "Team Jacob".

Then everyone tells me to shut up about my Muse tickets and how excited I am for them.

It's gay.

Twilight is the worst thing ever.

Who agrees?

I've never watched either movie, but from what I can gather, Bella is a hypocrite. She hates Jacob because he's killed people, but she feels safe with Edward because she thinks he won't kill her even though he's killed a lot of other people.

If I'm wrong, tell me, I refuse to waste four hours of my life and $20 watching both movies.

Also, I thought all the girls I know grew out of it since they stopped talking about it, but then New Moon came out and they started freaking out about it again.

Good writer... However, the book is in no way original and meant for tweens...

Hey Rapture, shut up about your muse tickets and how exited you are for them.

Seriously though, Twilight's just a craze. We managed to live through the High School Musical craze, so we should survive this.

Good writer....






There is a lot wrong with Stephanie Meyer's writing. Annoying, one-dimensional characters, overused and redundant adjectives, a disturbingly sick and obsessive relationship, and the most disgustingly blatant Mary Sue since Stephen Dedalus. Not to mention the fact that a love story that is supposedly about seeing inner beauty is impossible to take seriously when the writer can't stop gushing over how gorgeous and pretty and beautiful and hot and sexy and graceful and attractive Edward is. It's also worth noting the fact that it ignores pretty much all accepted ideas of vampirism, removing every single weakness and curse vampirism entails, from holy water to sunlight to the need to drink human blood to the point that Edward has as much in common with a spider as he does with the traditional idea of a vampire, and replaces them with...random superpowers. Then there's the utterly twisted plot points, like Bella marrying and getting pregnant right out of high school, Bella refusing to get away from a guy who admits to her face he feels urges to kill her solely because he's hot (or would "dazzling" be more appropriate?), and a werewolf falls in love with a newborn baby and promises to care for her until she is "of age" so he can woo her. If that wasn't horrifying enough, the baby conveniently happens to physically mature at an accelerated rate, and will look 17 when she is 7, so that's okay. No it's not.

I could accept this as a badly written book, but there are some things here that go beyond fantasy and reveal either a very naive or very twisted author. The series, which is written for girls nearing dating age, idolizes a textbook abusive relationship. Edward is controlling, prone to bursts of anger, moody, and jealous. He cuts her off socially, and she follows him like a blind puppy, expressing horror at the very concept of him leaving her. Or, you know, killing her. He justifies any wrongdoing against her with “It’s just because I love you” or “It’s what’s best for you.” As if that wasn't enough, he watches her while she sleeps. That's not sweet, that is stalkerish, and if a young girl gets the idea that this is acceptable from Edward, she will be ignorant of a classic warning sign of a very dangerous person. It presents a risk of violence and abuse as an exciting obstacle that can be overcome with true love, and treats obsessiveness as romantic and flattering, which is a great mindset to have while being abused. I have enough confidence in human intelligence to know that fans of these books aren't all going to be eager to get into abusive relationships, but if the best thing I can say about the love story is "readers will probably be smart enough not to emulate the main character," that is not a good thing.

The Twilight series is a poorly written story of an obsessive relationship told by an unreliable narrator, but even with all this I could still ignore it. But there is one story aspect that I simply cannot overlook, one that fills me with such rage and disgust at the very thought of it that I feel true, genuine hatred for this series and its author. I am talking, of course, about sparkly vampires. That is not a joke. The vampires sparkle. They're not weak to sunlight, it makes them glitter. I could understand if it was a cringeworthy metaphor, but no. As if Edward wasn't already slathered in adjective and adverb vomit, he has to literally emit glowing rays of light to really drive the point home that he's pretty. For god's sake, even My Little Pony has the taste and common decency to forgo bioluminescence, and she's a horse who exists for no reason other than to look pretty. Edward, a humanoid, has no such excuse. For all the poor writing and warped notions of how romance works, it's the fact that Edward is basically a big piece of jewelry with a rocklike personality to match that drives the point home that these are bad books.

That's why I don't really like the book/movie it's too one dimensional to me. Harry Potter fan all the way lol. I just rather read my Harry Potter books than some crummy vampire love book. idk maybe I'm just a weird girl but it just doesn't appeal to me. Harry Potter has more action, a little bit of romance, and I just love it. <3.....sorry got a little fangirly for a second

My favourite part of Stephanie Meyer's writing is when she uses a surplus of adverbs to describe how perfect in every single way Edward Cullen is.

'He is seriously, undoubtedly, pulsatingly, handsomely, beautiful. I would have given anything just to be touched by his generously, unforgettably, beautifully sculptured hands'

Not an exact quote, but you get the gist of it.


And another good thing about Twilight is that at least it's now easier for guys to distinguish awesome girls from girls that are brainless sheep and fvcking idiotic.

Anyway, the books are terrible. The author cannot write prose to save her life.
I've only seen the first movie. Its not that bad. Its still stupid, but all things considered its not bad.


My biggest gripe is how superficial everything is; all Bella cares about is how perfect looking Edward is.
Now that's a great thing to teach kids, isn't it?

I didn't really like that book. lol But then again I read bits and pieces. I did like to Kill A Mockingbird but my all time favorite book from school was probably Night by Eli Wiesel LOVE that book or Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde because of all the jokes in class we made about Mr. Hyde trampling the little girl. I miss my English class we had so much fun in there with our reenactments.
