Hmm, so have you read the four books? What do you think of them?

Here's my personal opinion, please don't mind the language. Its my own quote I'm picking from IF:
Quote :

Disgusting, that is what it was for me. I haven't read more unimaginative books. The concept of love is adulterated as it is, without Stephenie Meyer doping it further. I thought the books were a coming together of all the soaps that ever existed coupled with ridiculously naive imagination.

There it is, I'd like you to state your opinion freely too...

I don't mind them. They are a bit mushy for my liking. The 1st and 3rd are the best- the 2nd is too depressing and the 4th just has a crap storyline.

Lol Artrain..that just made my day.... Laughing no jk... ehm

Well at first when I read Twilight I thought it was the most amazingest ( Razz ) book ever. But then after reading another book then coming back to Twilight i realized that it very much sucked. First because there os so much love and the only drama parts are when the Vamps. want to drink Bella's blood which is in every single book..... another reason why is because there are many books that are the same as Twilight 'I'm in love with a vampire yada yada yada' it just gets old and very annoying.

Well, I'm not much into vampires thingy. It was the first book I read on vampires after Dracula, but I wasn't too much impressed. A friend of mine totally dotes upon vampires, grew up reading Darren Shan books, and she says compared to the vampires shown in those books, the ones shown in Twilight were total fail. But I cannot confirm that since I haven't read them Darren Shans myself...

I am not a huge fan but I have to say that It's a really interesting saga,I have read all the books and my favorite is the first one....I personally think that the writing is great.Also,it's nice reading about such a powerful love between Edward and Bella, because there will probably never be anything like that in real life.

I read these books, I agree with your friend darren shan is a lot better writer, and I think the twilight vamps are overpowerd (smallville anyone?)

I'm not sure if there is much powerful love shown in those books. Personally, it all felt like infatuation to me. Whenever Bella thought of Edward she used to remember how perfect his teeth were, or how smooth his body was, or his sweet smell, or some sort of other things like that which sounded ridiculous to me. Love for me is about the mind, so IMO, Stephenie Meyer got it wrong...

Yeah thats why those books really were annoying. Thats just stupid way to describe love, she fails.


Heh..again thats my opinion.

Yet again I agree with Ar here (this seems to be happening alot), I found the twilight series to be unimaginative (agreement may/may not end here) crap...Stephanie Meyer has, in all honesty, completely RUINED the word twilight now. Now days when you hear the word you think of sparkly vampires and "hardcore" werewolves (that arent even werewolves mind you) and not the epic time of day where it seems anything can happen >.>

Twilight....eungh.....that was my disgusted sound. Deep love, Stephanie Meyer? Don't make me laugh. It's highly possible that I may choke. Let me tell a short anecdote. I'll write a paragraph from Edward's viewpoint, and one from Bella's.

Warning. I'll be blunt.


Edward: "Oh look at that sexy girl. Her blood smells like my mom's tofu lasagna! I wants that blood....but that kind of thing turns chicks off! I'll just get her name for starters...Bella? Okaiz. I'm at her house, okay. All I can do is imagine getting in bed with her....but that might be jumping the gun a bit. I'll just sit her staring at her cute form and think of all the benefitss......so when will I tell her about my sexy forever young Vampire deal? I've heard that never aging and biting people also turns girls off......hmmmmp. I'll just show her that I'm all sparkly glowy in dah sunlight and she'll not care. Kay....MUST HAVE HER BLOOD....but Iknow I shouldn't....she's kinda nice.....AGH BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD NOW AAAAAAAAHHHHHH"

Bella: "Wow... that guy is kinda cute. He just like dented that car...I like brute strengh in a man... wow he likes how my blood smells....that's kinda sweet of him to say that. No one at school can even smell my blood! He's kinda scary cuz he watches me at night, but that's okay because I think he likes me so he won't chew on my neck. *A while later* Oh this is new he impregnated me so now there is like this violent bloodthirsty adorable baby in my vitals!! I bet he's gonna be cute when he- OMG OMGFF OH DAMN MY SPINE AAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHH. Awww look at my little child. 'you broke mammas spine, didn't sweety-weety?'"

I think I'm done.

Do you want to torture yourself? Don't even think about such things SBF, its worse than suicide. I'd never let you go through with it...
