I'll start off with:
I wonder that as well. The first two or three pages was enough to make me vomit.
I think stephenie Meyer is a problem seeing as without her fail of a book there wouldnt even be a readership convinced a dead guy watching them sleep is fantastic. I don't believe you can comment on how terrible a series is if you haven't read it. That's common sense, especially when the first reaction from twi hards is "if u just reed it u wil get it!!"
I was given new moon for a birthday gift and after reading five pages I threw it across the room and left it there, then I heard the media buzz and realised new moon was from that series and thought "surely not...that was awful, I must be mistaken". So I went back and read them because I wanted to understand why they were so popular. I still don't.
Twilight was written to appeal to a certain audience, teen girls and people who wish to read some crappy YA and leave their brains somewhere else while enjoying crappy romance filled with marysues and elements of fantasy.
I read Twilight, I didn't like it much, I'm not a zealous hater either. There are a lot of novels and series like Twilight.
What, Vampires that can cross running water, don't ask for permission to go into people's houses, don't count every grain of rice if you spill some and can be in direct sunlight? No thanks.
because im not in the intended demographic. owee, a 23 year old dude with hella hair on his belly doesn't enjoy a book intended for 13 year old girls, who would have thought.
