I liked all the books except breaking dawn. The twilight story line was really good an well written. Truth be told it opened a whole new world of writing about vampires for me.

I started it from a friend forcing me to. Perhaps I'm biased because I don't like being told what to do, but I hate it.
Hate it with a passion.
This is just my opinion so no one kill me or get offended, but... I think what action/horror/whatever you girls are calling it, it actually has does not make up for the fact that it is indeed nothing more than a romance book. I'm fine with vampires, I love cirque du freak. I do not like romance. and I actually have a reason.
Romance is a silly story that gets teenage girls all worked up and sometimes actually expecting a boy to come sweep them of their feet and take them away from all their troubles.
Which hardly ever happens.



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

I enjoyed reading the twilight saga. My little sister persuaded me to give the books a try and I must admit they were a pleasant surprise. I found them to be easy reads while at the same time very captivating. I am anxiously awaiting the next books release and I recommend then to anyone looking for a nice book to sit back and relax with.

Don't blame it on the girl...absolutely no one could act in that movie especially Edward's character (he couldn't capture the mysterious vibe and came off looking sick). Not to mention the lines were horribly cheesy. I ended up laughing through the entire thing along with several other members of the audience.

Well I will be the oddball and say I actually enjoyed the movie and so did several other peopl that I know. The books are good and I have read everything you can at the moment. Twilight, though, is the best book of the whole series. I think that the author was just way too rushed with writing Breaking Dawn.

Overall I love the Twilight series and the movie.

Re: Reserch Project: Did you read Twilight? I need you.. - January 9th 2009, 05:53 PM

I don't know if this would be at all helpful, but I've been trying, simply so I can say to anyone I debate the book with that I did actually read it, though I haven't bothered to continue in weeks. I honestly can't really bring myself to read further.

Bella is, as many writers would say, a "Mary Sue" character. She's written with her only obvious flaw being that she's clumsy, which is such a cliché character trait. I almost have to wonder if Stephenie Meyer was the girl in school who boys never talked to due to the sheer amount of attention Stephenie makes the boys in that school give to Bella, as a fantasy indulgence. I mean, Bella walks into a room and it's like suddenly half the boys in it wet themselves at the sight of her.

Edward's personality is dry. Just really dry. Meyer obviously tries to use his longer than average lifespan to explain his "old-fashioned" style of speaking, but in reality, it just feels like a shoddy excuse to me.

The dialogue feels bland and uninspired. I feel no drive to imagine real people exchanging said dialogue because it would feel like a bad stage show. And the descriptions aren't any better. She really needs to stop using the word "beautiful", because "beautiful" is a subjective description of something.

And the romance? Yeah, it feels like it was forced into the story with all the subtlety of loading it into a rocket launcher and firing it at a pile of fuel barrels. And leaves just as much of a mess.

But, I guess one of my biggest problems with it starts with my love of vampires. Stephenie Meyer takes the concept of vampires and puts it through a paper shredder, and then pieces back together only the things she wants to see. One night I got to a point where a character (not saying names, so as to not spoil it for those who still want to read it) claims that burning in sunlight is a "myth", and instantly stopped reading. Right then and there. Because it's one of the defining features of traditional vampires. I don't care if writers want to take out the "stake through the heart" and garlic weaknesses, but the weakness to sunlight? No thank you. I like stories where vampires are changed. I'm absolutely in love with the Japanese Trinity Blood series. But at least in Trinity Blood, they maintain most of the vampire conventions and then only tack on a few small things. And I almost forgot: vampire special powers. Sure, I can accept some of the powers in the story, but there's a vampire with the power to "know the safe place to escape to". Is Meyer kidding? That's the best she could come up with?

I know that chances are people are going to call out the fact that I'm not only a guy but also outside the usual age range, but I still think I'm perfectly able to call out a substandard book on what it really is. And in my opinion, that's what Twilight is.

I agree with Knightsniper. Now there is a college educated guy right there, who explained everything this sophmore educated girl right here is trying to say. Notice that I cannot even spell educated.
I love vampires personaly. Not a freak over it like Twilight has made many girls, but I still enjoy reading about them. But I love them because of their evil and curses. Cirque Du Freak is one of my favorite vampire series. Darren did take away some of the vampire ways, such as the weakness to garlic and the cross thing, but he found a way to keep so many of them in tact. Such as, there are two groups, vampires and vampaneze. The vampires drink only so much of human blood so to be careful not to kill. Vampaneze humbly beleive that drinking of them like parasites is wrong and kill when they feed.
It's got little to no romance, so girls I apologize.
There was a movie I watched last summer about vampires but the name escapes me. It kept every little vampiric detail in it. Minus the garlic part, I beleive that was just forgotten. Though be honest, garlic? That's just silly.

So anyway, that Josh is so right on so many levels and said all I was trying to sort out. Way to go man.



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

Yes, Twilight + New Moon + Eclipse. Breaking Dawn is too expensive because of all the movie stuff here. Bleh. I hate when things get popular and I can't buy them. Anyway, next month I'll try to find it at the library or something, because I want to read it. And I had no idea there was a part of Midnights Sun in Meyer's website... interesting.

I agree entirely with what Knight Shiper said. Bella just screamed out Mary Sue to me. And Edward's personality was both predictable and irritating at times. And in all honestly, Stephanie Meyers does not have that wonderful writing style that everyone constantly harps on. Hers is redundant at best. Plus the book was just filled with too much sap, and Edward's and Bella's relationship had the tendency to make me naseous. What bothered me most would have to be the fourth book though. I think it was done as just a crowd pleaser for that "happy cheesy fairy tale ending", due to the fact that almost all the conflicts hyped up in the other books just vanished into thin air.

Do I think that Twilight can be good for a light read? Yes. Do I think that it should be regarded as the best series of all time? Definitely not.

I've read Twilight, New Moon & Eclipse and I'm half way through Breaking Dawn. I really love the books and I'm not a big fan of books that have "fantasy" type characters in them, if you understand me.

I read the first two books because a friend really wanted me to. I didn't like them, I guess it just wasn't my thing. There are so many girls with an obsession with Edward and really scares me.

I read all of the books and the bit of Midnight Sun.

I think the plot (when there even is plot) is silly and they're poorly written. The relationship between Bella and Edward would be seriously unhealthy in real life, and I think it's sad that a lot of girls want that now. The characters piss me off because they're so un-dynamic and unrealistic, it gets really boring after a while. And, in Breaking Dawn, it just gets way too ridiculous.

Another one backing Josh (KnightSniper). I read all the books, plus that bit of the Edward PoV story on her site, fully recognizing that they were pure, girly fantasy indulgence. Like dirty FanFiction, only PG-13 and I had to pay money for it. (Lies, I borrowed the books from a friend.)

Edward wasn't actually a character. He was just described so vaguely that just about ANYONE could fall in love with him. To be totally honest, I filled in the blanks that Stephanie Meyer left at first and fell deeply in love with him. I was pretty sure we were gonna see some character faults there soon enough, but the only ones he ever exhibited were "caring too much" and "over-protecting." I started leaning towards Jacob in book two when Edward's "self-sacrifice for Bella's sake" thing got really old. I switched to Jacob fully in book three (once he grew a bit ). He at least, was a bit interesting. I really didn't like the last book at all.

It was very obvious that she was a first-time writer. This is why people shouldn't get their first novels published.

Also, Vampires are really cool. Stephanie Meyer's vampire are pretty sissy. Not because they don't drink human blood, but they're not very well developed characters. That was OK at first, since I just kept assuming that they'd become way cooler in the later books. She had a pretty OK world going, but didn't do anything all that exciting with it and also made some bad judgement calls. I mean, vampire special powers? You can work with that, but only really in the sense of James the tracker. Some vampires are especially good at tracking, others are especially strong for Vampires. Rosalie was...especially beautiful and stubborn? Her portrayal of vampires was a big letdown for me.

And lastly:
Spoiler for book 4 in the next line. Since I forget what the spoiler tag is, just highlight the text to see it.
And what kind of name is Renesme anyway?!

I should mention that she didn't 'ignore everything about vampires' she changed it. In her story, vampires don't burn in sunlight - it just shows them in a way that would make it obvious that they aren't human.

I'm a lucky person because I can read a story and be happy with it, so while I enjoyed her story, it was so poorly written. I hate Edward.

I think Meyer has unleashed a new sense of the word vampire. Maybe we should start to consider that there are 'traditional' vampires and now 'modern' vampires.

I'm sorry, but the two aspects we're talking about here just don't even out. She took something that roasts vampires alive, and changed it so it makes them "sparkly"? She took something fatal and turned it into an annoyance.

But the sad thing to me is, other stories have updated vampires as well, but without diminishing what they are and tacking on extraneous things that make little to no sense at all. I'd rather accept those as "modern vampires" over the sparkly, angsty, and wooden vampires Meyer has created.

I'm currently still waiting for my copy of Breaking Dawn, and then i'm going to read the Midnight Sun part on her site. But i still only voted for the first three.

I think its a great book. I don't like the fact that some people expect a vampire thriller out of this book, and want to see stereotypical vampires. What Stephenie did was write a teenage romance story with a twist. Like Romeo and Juliet, a forbidden love.

I've read the first, second and final one. plus the website bit.

I found the second so annoying because edward wasn't in majority of it. I had fallen in love with Edward at that point and did not feel happy that he was taken away from me. Plus i found the whole 'when will bella become a vampire?' annoying so I just sorta. skipped to the chase.

I don't know whether I'll read the third as I like how fulfilled my story is at the moment

I felt exactly the same with the edward thing. I don't know why, but even in the first book, i had a strange grudge on jacob. and i still do. No offence to him, i just find him fishy and annoying. :S

Haven't read a bit of the series, honestly don't intend to. Looks a bit overrated.

I haven't. There's so much hype around it, it doesn't seem like my kinda thing either. To me, it just seems like it's meant for a younger teen audience, but judging from the amount of people of pretty much ages 13-18, i guess it depends on taste.

Romances disgust me. :/



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

Twilight was an amazing saga. Stephenie Meyer wove the aspects of true love, humor, suspense, action, and drama into it, creating a masterpiece. Twilight should be in the classics, in my opinion!

....So you're saying that Twilight and Meyer should be regarded among names such as Charles Dickens, J.R.R. Tolkien, Shakespeare, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to name a few?

If yes, then I am honestly and completely speechless.

Twilight + New Moon + Eclipse + Breaking Dawn

Marry Sue much? + Bella was the most annoying character I have ever... um "met"? lol

It's so-so. I was listening to the audio books, so it's not like I lost time or anything.

I'm actually ashamed to admit that I used to like these books. I think that the later books especially send a horrible message to young impressionable teens. The character's are one-dimensional, the dialogue is amateur at best, and the writing style is completely monotonous. I'll skip these from now on and go straight to Anne Rice (love her, by the way).


Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
Marcus Aurelius
