Reasons why the Twilight series is an abomination in every sense of the word (59)

I'll start off with:

  1. Edward
  2. Sparkly Vampires

Stephenie Meyer is an idiot. My main problem with the series is the plot holes...oh dear God so many potholes...
Not only the question of why do vampires, particularly Jasper who has very limited self-control insist on going to high school over and o ver? They go on about how hard they work to keep their existence secret and yet on Bella's first day, her new friend could tell her ALL about the Cullens, even mentioning the weird incestuous relationships they seem to have...yeah, way to remain inconspicuous by behaving moodily and blatantly groping up what you're trying to pass off as your SIBLING in the middle of a crowded cafeteria. Also they insist on having the most expensive stuff which just reeks of New Money Meyer fapping away over her new fortune.

>>50 the problem is not Stephenie Meyer, but her readership.
More to the point, why did you read several of her books? One was not enough to get the picture?

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.
