So if I sound angry in this review…. Not only did Stephenie Mayer copy a bunch of other vampire books, but she also succeeded at making everything she copied 10 times worse. I mean the writing. The writing. Not to mention that the dialogues between the characters were atrocious. You know what also surprises me, though? When I read reviews of people who read tons of books and are really good in English and stuff and they say these books are well written.
It baffles me. Bella Swan is probably the character I hate the most of all the books I read. I hate her with a fury passion. Oh God, kill me now. Everyone loves her; everyone wants to be her friend. Ugh, shut up. And before thinking that you want a boyfriend like him think about this: Remember in New Moon when Edward left Bella? What does that tell you? So girls, make sure you have a boyfriend, ok? Cause otherwise, 2.
Now remember when that dumb girl decided to jump off a cliff? Wow, what a great message for teens, right? View all 39 comments. See this review and more on The Moonlight Library! In Twilight , Bella goes insane when her mother re-marries and ships her off to live with her absent father. In trying to cope with this, Bella imagines a world where she is the centre of attention from every boy in school, especially the hottest, most desirable Edward Cullen.
In New Moon , Bella realises her perfect relationship is actually really boring and creates some drama by sending her perfect boyfriend away for her own protection. She falls into a catatonic state of depression and can only be drawn out of it by the attention of another boy who, coincidentally, is a member of the werewolf pack made to protect humans from vampires. With a suitably heroic new love interest, Bella creates more drama in her insanity by deciding that Edward is going to kill himself over some kind of crossed-wires communication, and it gives her the opportunity to add a lot more drama and an international journey to revive her relationship with Edward.
This is complicated by the fact that Bella is perfect and everyone loves her, especially the vampire lover from the first book and the werewolf boy from the second book.
But of course Bella seems to get it all in the end: And her reward for being the perfect devoted wife and mother? View all 19 comments. Find all of my reviews at: If you admit to enjoying it, you run the risk of being branded an idiot.
Luckily I have loads of experience with people telling me I'm an idiot, so I'm cool with it. Let me paint a picture for you and maybe you'll understand how this little series came to garner such a high rating from me.
I read all four of the Twilight novels back-to-back to back to back over the co Find all of my reviews at: I read all four of the Twilight novels back-to-back to back to back over the course of one magical summer. It was the summer I ceased to be a flotation device for my always potentially drowning children and instead spent my pool days like this.
After countless hours every summer piggybacking my non-swimming offspring around the shallow end they finally developed some buoyancy and I was able to watch things like this. That was also the summer I was able to get back into reading again.
Thanks to the never-ending Wal-Mart check out line and a pretty little cover that claimed the contents would "Soon Be A Major Motion Picture" I found what became a perfect little fluffy summer obsession read. There's no doubt in my mind if I read these books today I would have a very different reaction to them.

Thank you for answering our advertisement. Now, I'm going to give you a short presentation, and I'd like to measure your reactions. Just sit down here I'm connecting this to your right wrist Right, we're almost set. Let me check it's working. Say something that's true, like, I don't know, "I am a fourteen year old girl".
And now something that's false, like, hm, "I've never heard of Paris Hilton. We're good to go. Oh, don't worry, it won't hurt. All we want to do is be sure we know what you think of our idea. It could be a movie too if things work out. It's about a teenage girl like you. Well, perhaps a bit older. Her parents are divorced. They don't have much time for her. All her mother is interested in is her feelings and her new boyfriend, and all her father is interested in is his job. She feels she needs to look after them most of the time.
She's much more of a grown-up than they are. You're nodding!
That's great. Those greedy, selfish adults seem to want to suck it dry of everything it's got. Sometimes she thinks they're like a bunch of vampires sucking out the world's blood. Sometimes she dreams that they'll suck out her blood too. Maybe she shouldn't read so many vampire books.
I see you nodding again! But they're a special kind of vampire. A technovampire. When they bite you, you turn into a Or maybe more like a beautiful living statue. I can see you frowning. You don't think it sounds very nice, do you? Well, we are having trouble with this part. Let me try it another way.
Lots of women don't like the shape of their breasts. They'd like to have bigger, more attractive breasts, even if they are kind of hard to the touch.
Maybe you've thought about getting a boob job? I knew it! Well, these technovampires have had a kind of boob job, but it's their whole bodies.
Their whole bodies are cold and hard to the touch, but they look totally gorgeous. Her only chance is to get in with the vampires and have them make her into a vampire too. So, there's all these twists and turns, but in the end she gets what she wants.
There's this vampire guy who falls in love with her, and she becomes a vampire too. And they live happily ever after. You're shaking your head. You don't like it. You think it sounds horrible that she's going to abandon her family and her friends and become a cold, hard, bloodsucking vampire robot.
But, look, she has to do it! It's her only chance.
And she really does look totally hot once she's had the robot treatment. Okay, except that she's cold of course, you're right about that. Oh, and, I forgot to say that these other vampire robots become her new family.
They're super-nice, uh, people. You still don't like it? It still isn't quite what we want. No, no, don't say that! I tell you, we're closer than you think. Perhaps we just need to make it a bit more romantic.
Of course we can. Why ever not? The vampire robots sparkle in the sunlight. Now don't you immediately feel more positive about them? You do! Oh, the pleasure's been all mine. You've been really helpful. And could you tell the next girl we're ready for her?

Books are supposed to educate and enlighten and broaden the mind. They are supposed to help us understand ourselves and those who have nothing in common with us except our humanity.
Books let us travel to distant lands, help us remember the past and envision the future, and they remind us to appreciate our present. So why do we as readers label some books or series or entire genres of fiction as completely unworthy of our time? We call them trash because we see nothing of literary merit in them. But why does every book ever written have to hold some nebulous literary merit?
I deeply believe that reading should be fun, and that some books are meant to be that and only that: Yes, I believe that we should read books that contain those things as well, just as we should mix our sitcoms with news coverage and our boy bands with Bach and Beethoven.
Steak is great, but consuming too much red meat can give a person gout. Sometimes, you just need a big bowl of popcorn, right? I consider Twilight to be one of the ultimate popcorn series. I actually think of it more as sitting down with a five-pound bag of Lucky Charms marshmallows and just eating until you make yourself sick.
She has no sense of self-preservation, she has a severe martyr complex, she has a horridly low opinion of herself, and she blames herself for literally everything, even those things over which she has absolutely no control.
She has her strengths, of course. Bella is loyal and self-sacrificing and incredibly loving. She even becomes a bit of a Mary Sue in terms of strength and gifts. But she absolutely should not be a role model for young girls. It does not. I think Twilight provides great fodder for discussions of self-worth and self-image when properly approached.
If I was the mother of a tween or teenage girl, I would of course gauge their maturity level and provide a disclaimer before allowing her to read these, but allow it I would. My parents always let me read anything, just giving me warnings before I dug it.
Because of those warnings, I knew what to be on the lookout for, and I was able to protect my mind while still thoroughly enjoying the story. Twilight is full of things that usually would cause me to put a book down. This is my third time reading it, and it was still just as much fun as the first time. A buddy re read with the ever lovely Mary! For more of my reviews, as well as my own fiction and thoughts on life, check out my blog, Celestial Musings.

Mind you, I'm sure that Twilight is really important and amazing to some readers. In my opinion though, it was just bizarre.

The previous four yes, I wrote four more of this shit parts of this ramble may be found in my reviews of Twilight , New Moon , Eclipse , and Breaking Dawn.
I repeat, I'm only posting this because I read this article. I'm literally only refuting the points mentioned in this, nothing else. I don't like comparison, but if the other party does it, be sure that I will respond. The HP books are all depressing.
Lots of good characters die, which isn't cool. And they're just full of violance, and ridiculous plans. Harry Potter books may have elements of violence in them, but people die in wars. You can't just kill off only the secondary characters. Much as I hated seeing many of my favourites die, it added an element of realism to the story. Sometimes, bad things happen to good people. That's just how life is. The plans aren't ridiculous as much as they are elaborate.
Stephenie Meyer did her resarch and found a place like Forks so the vampires could be outside. JK just made one up.
Yeah, Rowling created a world where we could all escape into, if we wanted. She spend years coming up with the details. She used her imagination and creativity, and the effects of it all were almost perfect. She created a hidden world for her wizards in the midst of all the normalcy of some place as common as London.
Making one up is a lot more tedious than Googling one. The sparkles are so unique and creative. They're not stupid. I feel like this is a parody account. The sparkles suck. Vampires don't sparkle. Young children should not be reading Twilight! Harry Potter has universal appeal. I read it as a child, and I understood it perfectly well. Twilight is better because the books are written better and the characters bring more to the table for the readers. Need I say more?
It's set in America. It's like you're not even trying How does that matter? And it's done. I have no purpose in my life, again.
Harry Potter made me a better person, and I will defend it ad nauseam.

Usually i dont find any interest in reading, but when i started Twilight i couldn't put it down. Ever since i read the Twilight series i've started reading on a regular basis. Even though i've read all the Twilight books i know that i will continue reading them over and over again and never get tired of them.
I've told all of my friends about this book and they have read it and enjoyed it just as much as i did. View all 9 comments. Mar 20, Penny rated it it was amazing Shelves: Apr 05, Elizabeth rated it it was ok.
I feel like I'm being generous with my two stars. Sooo thin. Mostly unlikeable or forgettable. Misogyny and patriarchy? Slathered on with a spackle knife. Thinly veiled hopes to compare her stories to "Romeo and Juliet" and "Wuthering Heights"? Meyer, c'mon. Mormon subtext?

I guess Flanagan had something true in her review that "Twilight" taps into something in the adolescent girl mind. I dunno. Jan 18, Hannah rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Not a person in the world.
These book are a shame to literature. One day, I can only hope and pray, this Saga will be laughed at in sheer disgust and mocked, and all who said that it was the "best and most romantic book ever" will be mocked as well.
If your looking for gushy, teenager romance junk, than these are the books for you. If you want something truly romantic, characters that actually have personalities, and a plot that dousnt make you cringe and want to stab yourself, than don't even glance at these "books". It These book are a shame to literature. It saddens me how so many love them, and makes me wonder why the world's taste has suddenly become so low that we result to reading and loving trash instead of the true works of art and literary masterpieces which have changed life.
I would rather eat dirt than recommend these to anyone, and let me just tell you scowls at her rashness which she is unable to hold back you have absolutely NO taste in books and have not even read good books if you give this book more than one star.

I read this series once in order to keep up with pop culture and stay aware of what my students were reading.
I recently reread it when my year old stepdaughter expressed interest in the books. My review is somewhat ambivalent. On the one hand, I was reasonably engrossed with the series despite its obvious simplicity and Stephanie Meyer's apparent ignorance regarding the difference between who and whom. The books include vampires, werewolves, baseball, La Push one of my favorite places on th I read this series once in order to keep up with pop culture and stay aware of what my students were reading.
The books include vampires, werewolves, baseball, La Push one of my favorite places on the planet , and enough erotic tension to get anyone in the mood. What's not to like?
On the other hand, the story itself could easily be read as a metaphor for conservative Mormon theology. Not only that, the idea of teenage girls accepting Bella and Edward as an acceptable relationship model is horrific. No, they do not practice unsafe sex. Instead, each person in this couple is so inflexibly "in love" with the other that they literally cannot exist without the other.
Threats of self-immolation, self-hurt, and suicide abound in each other's absence. Edward is an overprotective, controlling, even physically harmful because of his supernatural strength partner at times always remorseful, but never quite able to stop himself ; Bella just keeps coming back for more grimace.
Meyers leaves blank pages for entire seasons in New Moon--periods of Edward's absence when Bella's depression is so rampant that her thoughts and actions are not worth recording.
Bella is only able to be a person again with the help of another semi-paramour, Jacob. That's right, she needs the help of a good man to get her sad face off the ground.
Without blowing the ending for future readings, it's safe to say that all will be right in the world by the end of the series. Marriages will occur, babies will be born, and the happy domestic dream of a Mormon-inspired life will ensue--one in which the female is never able to achieve happiness or true self-realization on her own, but requires the assistance of a man in her life in order to fulfill it completely.
Sure, the series tantalizes the Daddy issues of millions of women, but here is the question with which I was faced: You can probably guess my answer. Two stars, Ms. You get the second for holding my interest, but you should be mildly ashamed. View all 5 comments. Mar 28, Hayley rated it it was amazing.
Who doesn't love these books? They are embarresingly addictive and so fun to read. I fell in love with the characters, though there wasn't enough Edward in the 2nd book Apr 23, Jessica rated it it was amazing. Twilight book 1 re-read. Still love it after ten years. Haters gonna hate. No se que nota ponerle a los 4 libros juntos, porque para mi el primer libro es aguantable, el segundo libro es asqueroso, el tercer libro esta muy bien y el cuarto libro esta muy bien hasta el final, el cual es una mierda.
May 08, Spuurrrnggeeee rated it did not like it.
This shouldn't even be called a book. It is horrid. It should be illegal. I'm not just saying this because it's a bad book which it is but because it's such a bad influence. The message of this book given out by one putrid Bella Swan is that a girl is useless without her boyfriend. Honestly it's all Bella's fault, I mean when Edward leaves her she crawls up on the ground and is depressed for, like, half a year. She only gets better when she gets another man in her life, Jacob Black canine shap This shouldn't even be called a book.
She only gets better when she gets another man in her life, Jacob Black canine shapeshifter- Sirius Black's last name- anyone else seeing the connection? Not just that but she has so little self-worth she throws herself off cliffs just to see a vision of her ex.
Get some persepctive! That aside Bella has no will of her own and, when she moves in with her dad who watches sport and has a gun what is practically the first thing she does? Goes to the kitchen and starts cooking, I mean come on!
Sexist much? And have you noticed that almost all the women in Twilight don't go out and get a job, they just live off their men? Bella is the single most annoying female character I have ever come across in any book I've ever read with the possible expection of the hypocrite Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy and I've read a lot of books. And as for Edward, well let me get started It's not sweet, it's messed up, call the freaking cops. And later when he's a nice guy etc.
No to mention that if he's a hundred years old he could have actually done something with that time instead of going to high school a thousand times and seducing someone over eighty years his junior. I mean if she's going to risk her life dating someone who has the potential to see her as lunch then it doesn't say much about her sense of what's good for her.
Also how many freaking times does the authour need to tell us that he's "gorgeous" I got the picture after the first hundered times goddammit. Another thing, why is everyone in that book in love with Bella? Seriously, what is there to love, is her chronic clumsiness supposed to be endearing, or he complete uselessness meant to be a good thing? Common Sense is a nonprofit organization.
