Hey, my roommate read the book Twilight (he's a guy). Now that the movie is coming out soon, he wants me to read it as well so he'll know someone else who has read the book and can see the movie with. I've heard that the book is dumb, but I don't know much about it and haven't researched it much. Has anyone here read it? Is it a good book? Should I read it? Or just make fun of him? I've heard it's a really dumb book.

This girl I was talking to stop talking to me once she started reading the book. Haven't heard from her for 2 weeks Pretty sure its good, because something has to be really good to blow me off.

Make fun of him to no end. This book is definitely a chick book.

I've only seen a select few of guys read it, and they are all openly gay. My ex read it, and shortly after came out XD.
I've read it, and I find Meyer's writing pretty mediocre and the movie seems to be the same quality. I mean, in one of the books, there were spelling mistakes and grammatical errors! But besides the terrible editing, Meyer is just not an excellent writer. She's just good at thinking up plots and catching the attention of teenage girls.

All my friends want me to read it... but all I ever read is Guitar World/Total Guitar. If I want something that has to do with vampires, Ill listen to Deadnight Warrior (Children of Bodom)

NOTHING HURTS BATMAN!

It's a boring, cliche, teenage girl book, but being about vampires gave it this cvlt, dark edge, so everybody loves it.

The writing's atrocious, and the plot is something you could find in any book marketed towards teenage girls.


I might see the movie though, because vampires are badass no matter what.
#15
I read it and I liked it fine, until the 3rd book. Then I got bored and stopped.

That summed it up. And yeah, it's a chick book. However, after I read it, I didn't become gay.
#17
I heard it was a good book from one of my friends. I don't understand why you would read the book just to see the movie. Sounds like your friend wants to complain, and everyone knows that once you read the book you get to bitch endlessly about how much worse the movie was.
#18
From what I've heard, Twilight is a movie you'd bring your girlfriend to.

Am I missing out on something there then?

this book stole me CS name.

Seductive vampires in relationships with mortal women is cliche and predictable. Vampires suck (well, everyone story/movie I've seen with vampires in it, I didn't like them.)

Stephanie Meyer writes her books as though she were writing fanfics.

So, main character is a vampire, yet he's a romanticist? What ever happened to the days when vampire books and movies involved them sucking blood and terrorizing people for the fun of it? Now they go to raves in shitty movies and are romantics in novels.
#25
My favorite book, read it in 11 hours. I could not put it down. At least give it a try!

exactly. I didn't love the movie 30 days of nigh, but at least the vampires were badass. No mercy, kill em all, including pretty women.

Cool, well based on all this I don't think I'm going to read it then. I might still consider it if I had a shitload of free time, but I'm a relatively busy person. I shall skip this cult, and continue my quest for the perfect Harvest Moon 64 game.

Look. The bottom line is that there are better written, more important pieces of literature out there. Don't waste your time on this crap. It really is written for girls. That's why the main character is such a perfect romantic. Talk to any girl who reads Twilight. They drool over him. If you're dating a girl who reads them, all she'll do is compare you to this fictional character. Your relationship will fail as a result. No matter how hard you try you can't hold your own against the high standards set by ****ing fictional character. Trust me. I've seen it happen. It happened to my roommate.

I'd have to say guy junk wins but not by much. It's like winning a beauty contest against Steve Buscemi.

I had never heard of this book till about 3 weeks ago
Now it seems to be everywhere

I might read it to be honest, even if it is a chicks book I'll atleast attempt to read to see what all the fuss is about

I did like the books tbh, but I have to agree with you. It's quite silly that so many girls drool over someone that isn't real. But I am taking a female interest to see the movie so whatever.

I wouldn't go that far. My girlfriend is like.. obsessed with this book/movie, but doesn't go far enough to compare me to the characters/break up with me for not being a vampire.

I'm reading it

A few people recommended it at school. Even the vice principle read the whole series and he was in the the army. Total beast guy reading Twilight.

You can tell the story was written more for girls, but it's not that bad so far.
#35
Don't read it. It sucks and should not even have been published.

A guy friend of mine read it and now I just can't picture him going out with anyone other than another guy. So yeah, Twilight pretty much screams "GAY!" for guys. Reading it is like metaphorically castrating yourself.

I believe my English teacher gives the perfect summary for it which is "sexy vampire novels for teenage girls" so unless you fit those qualities I wouldn't read it. A friend of mine who is forced to read because of his girlfriend is reading it and I can't help but laugh at him when I see him with it.
#37
Meh, I read it, found it a pretty decent read. Yeah, I'm straight, no, not the best book EVAR, but occupies some time, and gives you the right to throw things at the screen/ smack someone in the back of the head with it. Has some vampire action, none too graphic though. It is geared towards teenage girls, but whatever, if you're secure enough with your manhood, go ahead read it. If nothing, it will gain you some "sensativity" points with any girls that see you read it.

tl;dr: yeah, girl book, but it's a pretty decent time-occupier.

A guy I know read it. He said he only read it because of the vampire fight scene. Then he told me that was only like 10 pages of a 500 page book.

I'm beginning to question his orientation.
