Good question.
The answer is "nothing".

Definitely overrated
Agreed. I think many parts of the novel can be "removed" since they are boring and there's too little excitement reading the books, especially the first book. The villains only come out at about the last part of the story. Maybe the writer should write a short passage to introduce the villain at the front part so that readers can continue reading to see what's going to happen to the characters. I'd like to see more fighting scenes.

I'd say everyone is entitled to have their own opinions, but don't be so harsh on the series. Not everyone has the same taste, that's what makes us all different from one another. If we all liked the same things, the world wouldn't be such a nice place to live in if you don't have some healthy debate once in a while.

In my opinion, not everyone will like the book as it is after all told from the point of view of Bella Swan. I don't think guys want to know what it feels like to kiss Edward.

And not all girls will like it as well, I guess some girls are the independent type and hate the fact that Bella can be so dependent and emotional sometimes.

I love the whole series, the way Edward treats Bella right, the way Jacob is so friendly and cheerful. I love the way how many opposite elements can come together so perfectly in the books.

Ah, don't throw rotten tomatoes at me just yet, we all have the right to voice our own opinions, and yea, I'd say loud and proud, I LOVE TWILIGHT!

I love Twilight saga...the whole series, the plot, the characters....it's perfect for me! When I first started reading Twilight, I thought it would only be just another plain boring novel...but soon I find myself addicted to the series, anxiously flipping the pages to find out what happens next, I can't explain why I'm attracted Twilight saga...I just know Twilight saga rocks!!! ( perhaps girls would prefer them,haha)

haha. i dont really read such genre of books. i prefer thriller & something beyond that.
but i love the movies of this Saga. maybe becos Bella in the movies are so hot .
& yeah, everyone has their own opinion on everything. maybe other person hate Twilight & prefer Harry Potter. maybe some are vice versa. or maybe there's also some out there (like me) dislike both of the series. haha.
it's up to the readers & maybe, the writer also create an impact here

Hmmm... I read all 4 books, and was disappointed by the ending...

I like the first book. The rest, not so much. Totally agree with Dominic about the ending. I was hoping for death and blood . But in the end, the ending was a letdown
