I’ve never read any of the books or seen any of the movies, and I just read every word of this thread. How does that work? Haha.

@KatyElle I think that article is very accurate.

I’m actually a fan of twilight, I have read the books a few times and seen the movies multiple times. I think people are a little too hard on it though. No one ever claimed that the books were pulitzer prize winning, deep complicated books and no one ever claimed that the movies were oscar worthy. It is simply a frivilous romantic tale that’s easy to get caught up in.

And as far as the arguments that its not that good for teenage girls to read because her life revolves around Edward. I have to say, have you met a teenage girl or remember what it was like being one. Teenage girls lives do revolve around boys and this was long before Twilight came out.

I had a prof in college COLLEGE, that tried to make us read them ina gothic Lit class Myself and most of the class ( all of the english majors) protested becaue of the

A. Poor Syntax

B. weak plot, with major discrepencys and HOLES, oh god the plot holes….

C. Bella is a typical Mary-sue character.  Very one dementional, and little to no character development, and more or less a  ” I am sad and so I make up a boyfriend”

Among other reasons….

We got to read Anne Rice insted. 🙂

 

Edit: I did read all of the books…in highschool

@imalittlebirdie I can’t explain it, because I don’t get it either. He is so not attractive to me.

@imalittlebirdie Let me just say that Lestat could eat the entire Cullen clan alive. I read all the Anne Rice books in my teen years (well, up to the ones where she became born again and the books got all weird) and those are a good example of vampire novels. Fo sho.

I’m another one that doesn’t get the appeal of Rob Pattison. (That’s his name, right?) LOL

The books are a fun easy read, but that’s about it. The acting is horrible.

Will I ever stop reading/watching? Nope! hehe

I actually LOVED the books but I HATE the movies, I only watch them cause Jacob is steamy (he’s 18 by now, right? I can say that without seeming perverted right?!!?)

Bella in the books is adorable, she’s sweet, honest, sarcastic and funny.  Bella in the movie is depressed and relay’s NONE of the lovable book Bella’s character, and I despise KStew for messing it up.  And really, Rob Patt is the best looking guy they could find for that part?!

I have to admit I may be seeing the movie this weekend, but only because my sister begged me to go with her and she’s paying for my ticket.

@mrs_pugetsound hahaha, I love this.

I admit, I read all 4 books in 4 days over a winter break (my brain needed the break from casebooks). I’ve seen a few of the movies (and maybe I went with some lawschool friends to a midnight showing *hangs head in shame*). I totally admit that they’re both crappy, but sometimes, a crappy, silly read/movie is just what you need.

*but don’t tell anyone I’ve read/watched Twilight*
