Ha... I was wondering about the same thing. I guess it's up to personal preferences. The current frenzy about this series remained a mystery to me. I read the first book after the movie, hoping to find and answer but to no avail. After reading new moon, I gave up! It was a drag, and the story was one-sided and boring to me.


ps: I would rank harry potter above twilight, though I'm not really a hp fan.

I started reading Twilight last month, and guess what? I finished the first book within 36 hours! And now i'm reading the last one: Breaking Dawn.

I have to agree with Herlene that it depends on your own preference. Different people like different things. Most of my friends who read Twilight are crazy about Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson, actually). But i find the story quite interesting, especially all those supernatural stuff like vampires and werewolves.

By the way, if u ask me about Harry Potter, i would say twilight triumphs!

Haha. I finished all the books less than a week!!! I am crazy about Edward Cullen but not Robert Pattison. It's the character in the novel caught my eyes not the one in the movie. By the way, i do agree that different people would have different preferences. I don't like those robotic alienic story but there are people who like them. So, it depends on individual.

Harry Potter wins hand downs compared to Twilight. I thought that the 1st book was quite boring and was a little confused by the way the narrator writes the story(must have been sleepy while reading it so couldn't concentrate). And I personally think that Edward Cullen is not that handsome in the very first place. Don't get me wrong, he is indeed handsome but not in the form of a pale face and weird hairdo.

yeah definitely the potter books are much, much more captivating in terms of the storyline and character developments compared to twilight.

Why do people keep caomparing Twilight with Harry Poter anyway? Is it because of Robert Pattison?

Probably not really because of Robert Pattinson. I'm guessing it's because both are fantasy series based off a novel.
