Aiya, many people are mad at Robert Pat , somemore he's now dating his co-star, so it's like Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens in HSM, and everything gets heated up....lol

twillight is ok for me...
although i do think robert pat is very hot~
personally i'm not a big fan of this because i think the book is just like one of those love storries except this one is vampire and more challenging in a way.
it is a book that better than most cheesy love stories.

the first book is a bore..the others are interesting enough
probably it is famous because of Pattinson or the storyline(a girl not able to fit in in her old school moves to a new place and she falls for a guy who happens to be a vegetarian vampire)
a classic love story.

This threatens to veer off-topic, but I find Dr. Cullen [Edward's father] a lot hotter than Edward Cullen himself. -_-;; The latter's hairstyle is way too off-putting, though he may have a killer smile, both metaphorically and literally speaking.

On the other hand, I found the second book duller than the first and hence had giving up on reading the rest of the sequels.



Anyway, there's this tv series "the Vampire Diaries" that struck great resemblance to Twilight and I love it!

I agree with you. The second books is really boring. But the third and the fourth r really great. Especially Breaking Dawn. That's something readers want i think.

Twilight sucks I'm sorry.But it is.Even fantasy books should be logical/related to in some sense.Twilight doesn't...I like the idea of a mortal falling in love with a vampire...but Stephenie Meyer is not a good writer.It's too overrated.

-Dun be hatin its jz an opinion.=)

Stephanie Meyer's book has been translated to various languages. As a matter of fact, some of the chapters in Twilight has also been translated and published in magazines as literature pieces. Not only that, her other creation, The Host was also an international bestseller. Thus, I can't say that Stephanie Meyer is not a good writer.

In my opinion, her books are easy to understand and read. That's why people are easily absorbed into it. She uses the first point of view and gives detailed description of a subject to let her readers feel what her characters are feeling. However, to some, it's over detailed, annoying and irritating. Like how people say half of her book is describing the perfectness of Edward Cullen. Therefore, I do understand what you are feeling. =)

But still, I do think her book is too thick too.

persoanally, i dun get how stephanie meyer can make a story which relates vampire and vampires...i mean, vampires doesn't goes along with romances. It simply destroyed those classical vampires where they are supposed to be scary, meany and thirsty!

I read Eclipse recently, and I do not like it.(maybe because i'm for team Jacob)
I preferred New Moon and Breaking Dawn.

I don't like Meyer's style of writing...I enjoyed the films more...

Definitely overrated
