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.

This book was by far the best book i have ever read.
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? Go read storey's review here: However, after a really slow start, I tore through the last two. I guess Flanag I feel like I'm being generous with my two stars. 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!
Twilight Book Series
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.
"Best of" Lists
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? What happened to strong female characters? This book sends a really bad message to people, that it's alright for a girl to just cling onto her man. That aside the story line is pretty much a rip off of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and the supporting cast is so weak it isn't even funny.
The only decent characters Alice, Jasper, Emmet, Seth etc are barely metioned and almost all the human characters at Bella's school are either one dimensional or plain unpleasant with no redeeming qualities. I know it ties in with how Edward can't read her thoughts but personally i think that thats because there were no thoughts worth reading in the first place. She certainly doesn't have an individual thought within her head anyway.
As for the sparkling in the sunlight Sparkling, hoenstly, just when you thought this book couldn't get any worse, Edward has to go ahead and sparkle. Not only does it hark back to something from a Barbie princess movie but it's like a very poetic irony to have a lack-lustre character start sparkling.
That aside it's just sad when it comes to Edward because on anyone else it could have been mildly fabulous, but no, it just make Edward a complete sissy. As for it's too cloudy in Forks for him to sparkle properly, bitch please, if he sparkles in sunlight and not artificial light then it's the UV doing it, and UV doesn't care about how cloudy it is.
He will sparkle in Forks just as much as anywhere else, if this book wasn't already irrealistic enough then this made me want to shoot someone.
In conclusion,this book was truly unholy and this is coming from a La Vey Satanist so yeah Rant concluded. View 1 comment. Thanks to a bet involving things I would rather not disclose I had to read the entire Twilight Saga all four books. I accomplished the feat in four days back to back no DNF option. I already had the books on my TBR pile, but I kept finding excuses not to read them.
And I was right to dawdle. Instead of writing the review for each and every book in this "saga", I decided to put all my eggs in one basket, so to speak, and write only one review, listing only the three major gripes. The f Thanks to a bet involving things I would rather not disclose I had to read the entire Twilight Saga all four books. The first person POV was tiresome, though I have to give kudos to the writer for the knack of portraying the convoluted, self-absorbed, manic-depressive, somewhat hysterical thoughts of a teenager.

The writing and style made the books hard to read. Too much crap, too many weeds in the field, if you catch my drift. Were the editors out for coffee? And thanks to all the crap clogging the story and boosting the page count the whole thing was just too damn long. With a good edit you could cram everything up in one albeit a little thick book. And third, and the biggest problem for me in these books, the YA take on the vampire lore.
The creatures of the night are tall, dark, handsome, buff, sexy as hell, exuding eroticism through every pore, not a gangly, frail-looking teenager that glows in the sun and drinks animal blood. Vampires are supposed to drink human blood, burst into flame in sunlight and have lots and lots of sex possibly while drinking blood from their partner and chosen one. I think it says a lot that I liked the crappy movies better than the books on with they were based.
I do learn from my mistakes sometimes. Jan 14, Christine Wheeler rated it it was ok Shelves: I used to think these books sounded stupid and refused to read them, making fun of anyone who did. However, when my nineteen-year-old self got dumped a few years ago and I was looking for a distraction, I decided "you can't knock it till you try it, right?
This series is about as entertaining as reading a twelve-year-old girl's d I used to think these books sounded stupid and refused to read them, making fun of anyone who did. This series is about as entertaining as reading a twelve-year-old girl's diary. It's very absorbing and absolutely hilarious at times, but it doesn't do much for me on an intellectual level.
The main character, Bella, does nothing but whine and complain about everyone being in love with her. She's a useless human being and she doesn't have much of a personality and certainly doesn't have a mind of her own.
When her boyfriend dumps her in the second book, she turns into an even more useless lump by hiding from everyone for months on end.
This sends the message to teenage girls that there is nothing more valuable in life than having a boyfriend. Meanwhile, Edward, the supposed love of her seventeen-year-old life like anyone knows who they're meant to be with at seventeen , is a creepy, possessive stalker who does nothing but obsess over Bella day and night. I'm sorry to all the fangirls out there, but the way Edward "loves" Bella is not a true representation of love in my book. That whole watching her while she sleeps thing - awkward?!
In the meantime, Bella emotionally tortures her other suitor, Jacob, by playing games with his affections.
In my opinion, he's a much more likable character than either Edward or Bella, until of course in the fourth book when he imprints on Edward and Bella's newborn child pedophilia anyone?
Although I will admit that these were absorbing and entertaining, they should not qualify as literature because of the simplicity of the writing. A seven-year-old could read these were it not for content above their level. View all 6 comments. Jul 24, Anusha Narasimhan rated it it was ok. I may not be a Twilight fan, but I am a fan of manga. Sometimes, I even read bad manga because it is fun. There is only a level up to which a bad story can annoy the reader. If it gets any worse, it becomes funny.
I go pretty fast from, "What the heck am I reading. It's making me so irritated, I want to tear this book. Unfortunately, this manga is available only in Japanese now.
Main characters See also: List of Twilight characters Bella Swan : The protagonist of the series, teenager Bella is a perpetually clumsy "danger magnet" with dark brown hair and brown eyes.
She is often portrayed as having low self-esteem and unable to comprehend Edward's love for her. She has an immunity to supernatural abilities involving the mind, such as Edward's mind-reading ability.

Like some vampires, Edward has a supernatural ability: mind reading. It allows him to read anyone's thoughts within a few miles' radius. Bella is immune to his power as a human, but learns how to lower this "shield" after her transformation to a vampire.
Jacob Black : A minor character in the first novel, Jacob is introduced as a member of the Quileute tribe. He resurfaces in New Moon with a larger role as Bella's best friend as she struggles through her depression over losing Edward. Although he is in love with Bella, she initially sees him as just her best friend. He and other tribe members can shape-shift into wolves.

Structure and genre The Twilight series falls under the genre of young adult , fantasy , and romance , though Meyer categorized her first book, Twilight, as "suspense romance horror comedy". When asked about the structure of the novel, Meyer described her difficulty in pinpointing the premise of the novels to any specific their category: I have a hard time with that.
Because if I say to someone, 'You know, it's about vampires,' then immediately they have this mental image of what the book is like. And it's so not like the other vampire books out there— Anne Rice 's and the few that I've read. It isn't that kind of dark and dreary and blood-thirsty world. Then when you say, 'It's set in high school,' a lot of people immediately put it in another pool.
It's easy to pigeonhole with different descriptions. For instance, Twilight vampires have strong piercing teeth rather than fangs; they glitter in sunlight rather than burn; and they can drink animal as well as human blood. Meyer comments that her vampire mythology differs from that of other authors because she wasn't informed about the canon vampires, saying, It wasn't until I knew that Twilight would be published that I began to think about whether my vampires were too much the same or too much different from the others.
