Why I Hate Twilight

95 reasons why you shouldn’t read Twilight, one of the worst pieces of literature ever written.

  1. Bella is a perfect character (“Mary Sue”), which Meyer hides by calling her clumsy.
  2. Being clumsy is not a flaw if Edward always catches her.
  3. She can’t do anything without Edward.
  4. And when he leaves she attempts to commit suicide.
  5. Meyer is living out her own fantasies by writing about Bella, who is clearly herself.
  6. The books aren’t well written, just because every other word is a fancy adjective doesn’t make it good writing.
  7. All the rules Meyer sets for being a vampire are broken by the end of the series.
  8. Not only that, she breaks rules set by more esteemed authors.
  9. The world population will come to an end because all girls who read this book will think they are Bella and will wait for their Edward to come until they are old. And he’ll never come.
  10. Bella almost dies fifty thousand times, but Edward always saves her. This is boring.
  11. Edward is too perfect and has no flaws either. Even vampires should have flaws besides wanting to suck human blood because it’s natural to them.
  12. The reason the books became so popular is because Bella has no personality and any loser can put themselves in her shoes.
  13. If Bella is so ‘plain’, why do so many guys fall for her within the first two chapters?
  14. Bella teaches women to let the man handle everything, which pretty much is a huge step backward for women everywhere, who have fought for equality.
  15. Isn’t it convenient that her father always leaves her alone and doesn’t question her? Real parents aren’t that way.
  16. Lack of character development.
  17. Bella is a useless, whining, doll that suddenly has become the idol for girls everywhere.
  18. People say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter. Guess what? WRONG.
  19. Edward is extremely possessive, border-line abusive, and boring as anything.
  20. It’s too cliché.
  21. This book contains no real sex, so it’s not really a vampire novel.
  22. Read Anne Rice – those are vampires, not the girly men that Meyer has created.
  23. You don’t have to describe the character every two pages, we know all about Edward’s ‘perfectly toned chest’ the fourth time she mentions it.
  24. Bella reflects upon herself through the entire novel to tell important plot developments. Hey Meyer, ever heard of “Show, don’t tell”?
  25. She never uses the word fangs in the entire book series, and it’s supposedly about vampire.
  26. Her vampires sparkle. Enough said.
  27. Supposedly Meyer never uses the word ‘said’ in the entire first book, instead using breath.
  28. There is too much face touching.
  29. It’s predictable, and childish.
  30. We read the entire series just to laugh at the stupidity of it.
  31. Meyer can’t think of original names. The only original name she used was Rennesme, which is combination of two names and doesn’t count.
  32. Vampires can’t get people pregnant. SPOILER!
  33. Vampire baseball was just a disgrace.
  34. People think Meyer is the best writer ever.
  35. The plot drags on forever, when it really could have been completed in two books.
  36. Wow, yet another ‘original’ plot of forbidden love.
  37. Why is it called the Twilight Series if only one book is titled Twilight?
  38. It’s too easy to mock. Go on Youtube, how many mocks on Twilight do you see?
  39. They use a drug reference in a book written for ten-year-olds.
  40. Stephanie Meyer creates some interesting characters ie: Jasper and Alice. She then ignores them, and gives them no development.
  41. Every Other Facebook bumper sticker is about Twilight/Edward. EVERY OTHER ONE.
  42. Fangirls are so blinded by their love for Edward that they don’t realize the book is terrible.
  43. Stephen King agrees that Stephanie Meyer can’t write ‘worth a darn’.
  44. It’s stupid.
  45. Bella.
  46. Bella is Edward’s beard.
  47. Meyer wrote four books about nothing, really.
  48. Straight men sparkle?
  49. It’s teeming with grammatical errors.
  50. Bella Swan means beautiful swan, which is horribly cheesy.
  51. Edward Cullen is sparkly; crows like sparkly things.
  52. Do any guys actually like Twilight?
  53. If the first 200 pages of your book rely on the mystery of a character’s identity, don’t slap “First, Edward was a vampire” on the back cover.
  54. There’s far too little actual conflict in the story. But this probably stems from having a flawless main character.
  55. They fall in love way too quickly and it seems fake because no one falls in love instantly, especially teenagers.
  56. They only love each other because she smells good and he’s hot. There’s no other given reason why.
  57. It’s just not healthy to teach young girls that True Love involves the guy watching you while you sleep.
  58. Edward is HOT. We get it.
  59. She had only been in Forks for a month when Edward had been watching her sleep for two months.
  60. There’s something disturbing about Carlisle turning only teenagers into vampires.
  61. All Twilight fans are insane, proved by several responses to criticism such as…

    “What is your name, address and phone number, just so that i can track you down ank kill You with my super awesom vampire powers THAT I AQUIRED FROM READING THE SERIES!!!!!!!!!!”

  62. And this…

    “do you WANT a cult of angry twilight luvers like mysef at your doorstep at night trying to behead you????? you shouldnt voice an absurd oppinion like this on the internet.”

  63. And this…

    “you must have not read much good litterature in youre life, because if you cannot appreciate the quality of this art…..YOU ARE MENTALLY UNSOUND!!!!!!!”

  64. Isn’t funny how Twilight fans can’t spell and use proper capitalization? By the way, 61, 62, and 63 are real quotes.
  65. The reason Edward can’t read Bella’s mind is because she doesn’t have one.
  66. T. Pain would totally win Bella’s heart and beat up Edward because he’s on a boat.
  67. Edward hits on the school faculty to get out of classes.
  68. We applaud Stephanie Meyer, as she’s got to be a rich woman by now, having found her forte in the insane cult of teenage girls who go rabid over her writings.
  69. Vampires vs. werewolves (isn’t that a Facebook application and such a original idea?)
  70. There’s nothing worse than a fan girl going insane over a fictional guy. It’s rather pathetic actually, so, um, yeah, get a life and keep reading those books, chickies.
  71. This book was not worth the paper on which it was printed.
  72. Bella has no goals and no future, her life revolves around Edward.
  73. WWJTFD: What Would a Judgmental Twilight Fan Do? Answer: attempt to attack with the ‘cool vampire powers’ they gained from reading the series. Awesome!
  74. Even if you like the book, it doesn’t live up to its hype.
  75. Edward is a good VILF, that’s it.
  76. “And I cried numerous times upon realising there would never be an Edward in this world.” – quoted from Almuvira Anona on Yahoo Answers.
  77. A hundred years difference = pedophile.
  78. It’s a co-dependent relationship stripped down to the bare essentials. Girl: “I can’t live without you. I want to change myself to be with you.” Boy: “If you leave me, I will kill myself.”
  79. Stephanie Meyer must really be into pedophilia: first Edward and Bella, now Jacob and Renesseme? SPOILER.
  80. New hot couple name for Bella and Edward = Bedward
  81. You may think Edward Cullen is smart and fast, but Chuck Norris could take him.
  82. Bella’s only deep thoughts are, ‘Edward is so perfect. I love him.’
  83. The only reason I kept reading was to see if Bella could redeem herself by getting over him.
  84. Jacob, who didn’t abuse Bella and was nice to her, was dumped and she chose Edward. Hmm, masochistic much?
  85. Ms. Meyer writes the way I did when I was twelve years old, doodling in my journal.
  86. “It would have been much better if Jacob and Edward discovered they were gay: no sequels, no whiny Bella. Amen to that.”
  87. Many people have enjoyed the making of this, many have helped with it too…in other words lots of people hate Twilight.
  88. You are allowed to have your own opinion, just like we are allowed to have ours. Get over it. Twilight fans don’t seem to understand that though and attack at the mention of flaw in the book.
  89. Light Yagami doesn’t approve of Twilight so neither should you.
  90. “Cause it’s dumb.” – Random Person on the Street
  91. “It’s annoying as hell.” – Random Person on the Street #2
  92. Martin Luther would not have not have approved if the book was written during his lifetime.
  93. Harry Potter could beat Edward any day with his magic powers.
  94. It’s offensive to the entire human race, both male and female.
  95. The book was so bad we wrote 95 reasons why we hate it.

    While I don’t think Twilight is the greatest book ever, I think you’re reasons are pretty lame. I think a lot of people are angry because someone became a HUGE “success” on such a simple idea, that I personally had seen plastered all over online fiction communities (quizilla, fictionpress, etc.) years before Twilight came out. I read a lot of stories on those sites that were far better and more original than Twilight, but I wouldn’t go so far to say that Twilight is a HORRIBLE book.

    It obviously appeals to young girls, and I don’t see why people are so keen to crush them by telling them that’s it’s a horrible book and a waste of time. I’ve read books that were far worse, but I don’t see anyone bashing those nearly as much as people are bashing Twilight. I’ve read every book in the series, and while I definitely wouldn’t say they are my “favorite” books, they were enjoyable in a sort of this-is-entertaining-and-I-don’t-have-to-think-that-hard sort of way.

    So in summary, while I agree with some of your reasons, I think the vast majority are pretty insubstantial and lame. There are definitely a lot of better books out there, but there are also a lot more that are worse. In all, I think it’s a good book, and for whatever reason, you are writing out of spite or jealousy or some other uncalled for emotion.

    To post #12, Not even: Of course it’s the authors opinion. That’s obvious. And the sentence “It’s awesome, you make stupid points that rely on NO fact.” DUH. It’s a fictional book, it’s not based on fact in the first place. Also, the author of the list is female, not a ’sir’.

    I haven’t read the books, not interested, but it’s a list people, a list. It’s something that states someone’s opinion, and probably meant to be humorous. Get over it.

    To posts 10 and 11, thank you for good grammar. :]

I understand that you don’t like reading about people badmouthing your favorite book, BUT, THIS IS THE INTERNET Seriously, The author is ALLOWED to post his/her opinions here, If they didn’t what would the internet be filled with, I don’t understand why you read the list, why just be like “Oh a list badmouthing Twilight, I like Twilight, I best not read this, for fear that I may become enraged…” Just calm down. Please? or don’t read posts that upset you

    If you read the books you know exactly why…they don’t have fangs…read more variations of vampire books they’re all different, do you make fun of Elves in Lord of the rings because they’re tall and beautiful when honestly in older times elves where either short little things that were closely related to fairies or the little people that help Santa? I don’t think so, so drop the whole “I thought we were talking about vampires” bit. And who ever said vampire novels had to be sex filled to be vampire novels? Your a perverted jackass!

    She can’t think of original names? what the heck? yeah because Jasper is an everyday name…and so is Esme and the last name Cullen, grow up.

    I do realize you probably meant the “it has to have sex to be a vampire book” bit as a joke, but I just thought I would point out that you considered Anne Rice’s books to be vampire books, and I have a hard time remembering any substantial sex scenes in there.

  13. huh..
    Posted March 29, 2009 at 1:06 am

    Ok I liked Twilight but this list is pretty funny (and mostly true), so to you other people who say who ever made this list didn’t read it, I think they did. Stefanie Meyers really did not create good role models for any one in these books. Her other book The Host was much better.

    I’m a reader, wide reader.. I’m no expert at all, I think that there’s no such thing as read all. I also believe that there’s no book in the world that suck that much that doesn’t give you something..
    This saga left me the idea that I’m growing up, and the fanatism and idealistic clichés works for some books. I’m not saying that the books are inmature, it’s the kind of books that atracks youg people.
    And it’s true, every author it’s free to put their own rules, the exciting part it’s being innovative, congruent, funny.. and I didn`t saw any chalenge on the “new” vampires, that’s just me.
    Anyway, for some people work, for some other don’t.
    So don’t hang up on jokes, unless it offends you, and if it does, some of it might be true. ;)

    i like how most of the people who have commented this have attacked you because its your opinion, yet they seem to forget that by saying the book is great they themselves are voiceing an opinion. She’s allowed to not like it just as much as you liked it. So stop attacking her.

    I enjoyed the books but also agree that they were poorly written and about twice the length they needed to be. But most of it was enjoyable (aside from new moon which spent far too long going on about Bella being depressed). The books obviously arent going to win the nobel prize for literature, but as a bit of fluff, they are fairly entertaining. If your willing to take them as what they are a written soap opera about a vampire who glitters and the girl who falls for him its an enjoyable but not enlightening read.

    I read all four books. I hated them immensely but was oddly drawn to finish them, excited to finish them even, which makes me feel more than just a little bit less then I was once.

    The writing is terrible, the errors are to numerous to count and the heroine is nothing but a sad sap of a girl, illustrated even more startlingly in the movie, yes I watched it, I beat myself with a soap filled sock afterward.

    My daughter has Edward and Bella posters in her room, I can’t even bring myself to look at them without thinking of the contradictions to my parenting they espouse. I let her love them anyway, against my better judgment. I am sure she will not grow up to be a ridiculous woman who relies on men for her overall satisfaction and success in life. If she does turn into that, most likely I won’t be blaming it on Twilight.

    You’re reasons are about as good as the reasons some love the series. Could have done a lot better. And make sure your semantics are correct before you criticize others’. You left out at least half a dozen “is.”

    I agree, Twilight (and the entire series) is grossly over rated. I also agree with most of your reasons as to why it is stupid; although your accusations of terrible grammar would have been more effective if not for your own errors.

    By the way, Harry Potter was over rated too.

    If I were to say one positive thing it would be this: The books may be average and a little trashy, but at least they have kids reading.

    I have never personally read the book, so I can’t say whether I think it is good or not- That’s kind of a matter of opinion anyway. I do, however, think it is a bit silly for people to become so obsessed over such a thing. It’s a book for cripes sakes- good or bad. Read and then move on with reality.

  27. wow.

    I do believe that some of you all need to review the basic rules of either British grammar or American grammar. Yes, they are different, and many of you violated multiple rules in one sentence. To those of you who are clearly seniors in high school, it’s called a dictionary and can help with the completion of words in the proper context. The post was funny, and reading the comments was like watching a car crash in slow-motion – I wanted to look away, but just couldn’t.

    This list made me laugh a few times, and although I’ll agree that a lot of your reasons for Twilight being crap are groundless, they still made me lol a little.

    I’m glad someone pointed out the fact that people saying your opinion is rubbish and shouldn’t be allowed to exist are showing an opinion themselves. However, I’m surprised that Twilight fans have been dissing someone for reading the series. How can you have a go at a person who has actually taken the time out of their life to give this series a chance?
    “You didn’t enjoy it, don’t read it.” Er, a little too late there really, seeing as you have to read it to actually know if you enjoy it or not first. Besides, like I said, at least the author of this list actually had the common decency to read the series before she attacked it.

    I’ll be honest, I haven’t read the series and I probably won’t just because it’s been hyped up so much and I’m now totally aware of the fact that it’s a complete and utter girly wet dream.
    For me, the only good things that came out of Twilight are A River Flows In You, by Yiruma, and Decode and I Caught Myself by Paramore.

    Oh, and I’ve also got to add that #89: “Light Yagami doesn’t approve of Twilight so neither should you” actually made me laugh so much and appreciate the author of this list. If they have good enough taste to have read/watched Death Note and to refer to it in a completely unrelated piece of writing then I high five them with all my heart.

    I have a doctorate level degree and majored in English literature. I understand the criticism. It is not great literature and not an example of healthy feminism. With that being said, I enjoyed all 4 books. It ends too cleanly, but for those of us who read fluff for escapism, it is enjoyable.

    #54, at least kids are reading. I am not advocating throwing out Shakespeare and reading it as part of a curriculum, but people can read for enjoyment’s sake. Frankly, I care about that.

    I agree that Twilight is an awful series and that the fangirls can be annoying as anything but in reality when you read some of this list you are just as bad as them. Seriously, when you justify not liking something because “so and so doesn’t like it” you sound just as much as a follower as all those you are trying to make fun of. Also, though I understand that this is supposed to be written to comedic effect, when you make a list of reasons to dislike things, try to avoid things like 64 and 95. They really are not reasons, not even opinions really. Just space filler.

    Wow, you commenters take these things far too seriously. Twilight was awfully written and had no character development, nor did it have any original ideas. It was predictable, boring and tiresome. As for the movie of it. It was the same.

    I won’t go so far as to say that you’re a complete idiot for hating Twilight, in fact, I won’t even get mad, but please don’t get snarky at others for reading a book and enjoying it. Maybe nobody in that book is really well developed. Maybe they fall in love too quickly for it to be real. Maybe it’s not a perfectly written book. I don’t care. I, for one, read books just so I can enjoy them. If you didn’t like the book, that’s perfectly fine, but please don’t go around telling other people that they’re complete and utter fools for liking a book that was written to be enjoyed. If most of those fans are teenage girls, well, I guess we can see who the book was written for.
    And please, if you are going to tell people what a bad book it is and why nobody should read it and why it should be burned for the good of humanity, give good reasons. Don’t throw in stupid things that aren’t true. Or at least, be reasonable with what you put in.
    Ah, whatever. I probably digressed in there accidentally.
    One last thing: you said that Twilight fans don’t have good grammar, right? Well, look right above my post. “Your my hero”. No apostrophe, no period. Unless you’re going to get people to agree with you who love taking the extra five seconds to make sure their three words are properly written, don’t use that as a reason not to read the books. Good God, I could use this last thing as a reason why someone should read the series. Well, no, ’cause it’d be a very bad reason, and anyone worth two grains of salt would be able to see as much. Ah whatever. You’re entitled to your opinion. I just hope you read the books before passing judgement. You can’t judge a book by its readers alone. Not all the people who read the books fit into one of two categories. It is possible to enjoy them without becoming a giggly fangirl.
    At least I hope so. It would be extremely awkward if I grew a uterus. I’d have a lot to explain if I ever got a girlfriend.
    And on that light note, I’m off. Have fun arguing on the internet, boys!

He thought she was cheating on him… until he found out she meant Edward from Twilight! Can you imagine being dumped because you weren’t enough like a fictional douchbag?

    The list and posts are much more entertaining than any piece of fiction. Good job. Here is an idea for a book. All Twilight fans are given an invitation to meet the REAL Edward in Arizona. They are directed through a curtain where they drop into the Grand Canyon never to be heard from again. Who invited them? Stephen King, because for once he wants to write truly scary non-fiction. Twilight fans are scary.

    I remember I was so obsessed with vampires when I was middle school (before all of this Twilight drama emerged). I loved Annette Curtis Klause’s vampire love stories, Anne Rice, Dracula, and even the bloody Cirque Du Freak series and all the other girls would think I’m weird.
    What now freaks? At least the stuff I read had substance and some form of message. You have no idea how sick I am hearing about all the retarded Twilight book reports in my English HONORS class. “OH the grammar and writing wasn’t very good, but it was a romantic story” To bad that whole forbidden vampire love crap was written a bazillion times before in a BETTER format.
    Thank goodness I started high school and got preoccupied with all the school work just in time before the Twilight plague could get to me.

    dear lord! I looked at the comments, and wow! can nothing be spared from angry people attacking other peoples ideas? we know you Twilight lovers enjoy that book series, but some people don’t like it. This list was made for people who didn’t/don’t like Twilight. if you don’t like it, then don’t read a list called “why to hate Twilight”. I had contemplated being an asshat, but that would make those of you who love Twilight even more pissed off.

    I have read all the books. I liked them, but I wouldn’t call myself a fanatic. Your list however had me laughing. And better yet I think a lot of them are true, which is where I am at a conflict.

    I enjoyed the books because there is no base of truth in them whatsoever, and people thinking there is, are just crazy. But that’s just it I read this books to relax and read something I think would be fun to read. There are a lot of mistakes in the book and plot holes but I think it was enjoyable as a book to read on a weekend since it isn’t exactly heavy reading.

    And as for Stephanie Meyers, she is living the dream. Playing on the emotions teenagers feel (Falling in ‘love’ for no reason but looks) and made a lot of money for it. I’m just mad I didn’t think of it first. I think she knew that she couldn’t write a novel that would change literature for the better, so she wrote silly little things for money.

    As for your list, I love it! I agree with it all and I think you should add more. But I will continue to like Twilight.

    Also, you are right, Harry Potter would kick Edward’s ass!

    I hate Twilight, however, your list is unimaginative. All you do is attack people because they like something, and your jokes aren’t funny. With one exception, “66. T. Pain would totally win Bella’s heart and beat up Edward because he’s on a boat.” That’s pretty funny.

    I have to admit that I read the first book, kind of. I really don’t remember the book at all. It was that lack luster. I can deal. I was just in high school and I swear to all Gods in the universe that if I hear one more pathetic, no brained teenager scream that Twilight is the end all be all, I will go Clockwork Orange* on them. That’s right, classical music, Twilight,and no way to shut their eyes. Soon, they will be disinclined to make a “Twilight will pwn your soul” comment. Besides we all know that Bella Lugosi and Gary Oldman, can truly play vampires as they were meant to be seen, through Bram Stocker’s eyes.

    You know what i think is funny. I’ve actually started reading these series & liked it… But i agree w/EVERY point you’ve made on here. It’s definitley “CLiche” & in no way is it Better then Harry Potter.. absolutely no way!

    Oh & You know I’ve been thinking that the WHOLE TIME… “Why is it called the Twilight Series?” Like w/ Harry Potter, that’s the name of the series but Twilight… There’s like no name… I get so confused everytime i ask for it at the library. I’m like do i just ask for the New Moon or do i say New Moon, the sequel to Twilight or do i call it New Moon from the Twilight Series (which never makes any sense to me). I have NO Clue. But yeah good job… I guess.

    LONG LIVE Harry Potter.!!!

    Posted March 29, 2009 at 2:19 pm

    Okay I really had to comment… The list made me laugh… a lot… and I agree with several points, especially the bits involving sparkling, grammatical errors, Stephan King saying she can’t write, and Bella being an attempt at a flawless character (Mary-Sue anyone… yes I read fanfiction… and the bit about Edward’s character being a ‘mystery’ and ‘Edward is a Vampire’ being posted on the back cover.

    So for the record… I have read about 250 pages into the first book. I will admit that the genre of teen romance is not my cup of tea. I tend not to read romance romance at all really… the genre does nothing for me. I gave up on Twilight (and I really, really tried to read it) because I simply could not stand it. I didn’t particularly like it but as a writer and a major reader, it made me cringe. Horribly.

    I want to point out that there are loads of really good things about the books. They’re popular which means they get kids to read, especially young teens girls, and reading is good for them. They’ll look into the books in the sections labeled ‘If you like Twilight read…’ and thus be exposed to more material, and that’s good. Literacy is good. The book itself, written is not horrible… I admit this.

    Now this is not a bashing, but you have to understand, that Twilight is not a good work of literature. It’s okay, mediocre at best. There’s a million things she could have done better, the major one which jumps out at me is rewriting the vampire myths in a different way because honestly, the sparkling, is hokey. It’s ridiculous and I’m a big fan of old horror stories and films and legends and though I accept that she had to find a way around the sun myth for the book to work, she didn’t do it very well.

    The writing itself could have been a million times better if she wrote it 3rd person (again… only read 250 pages into the 1st book) because quite frankly, Bella boarders to much on a imperfectly perfect, mary-sue type character and I honestly what to know what her editor was thinking when she let Meyer get away with not giving Bella a total personality makeover. If we were taken out of her head she could have gone places with it. It would have the potential to be less monotonous, to take a more, omniscient point of view on the thing, which would have been neat, especially if she still refrained from mentioning that Edward was a vampire until 200 pages in (and didn’t tell her audience this on the back cover). It would have pumped things up.

    Also, for the record, this is perfectly fine that she can’t write very well. It was her first book and she was writing in a genre that sells books through crappy writing. Honestly. Romance books are full of clichés, lots of talking, lots of expressing, little plot, and just a lot of crappy writing. That is what makes it entertaining, that’s how the genre sells. There is NOTHING wrong with that at all because it works. Similar to comedy in films… the straight foreword comedy tends to suck as movies (think… dodgeball, anchorman… ) but that’s okay because we don’t watch them to be moved, we watch them to be entertained. Teen romance is great because it’s entertaining and it gets kids to read, but the writing is generally (generally, not exclusively) crap. And that’s okay.

    I think (and as a writer… I’m not published but I certainly have the ability to recognize very good writing and not so good writing, weather or not I actually enjoy the book itself) that ultimately she did not write a good book and that is really where my issue lies. I have a problem when people claim that it is a good book because honestly… no it’s not. It has virtues, absolutely, but the writing is not good at all, the characters need serious work, the plot… yeah I’m not gonna even go into that… and she’s defacing a really great and creepy legend, not making it more beautiful.

    So the list is kind of harsh, maybe a little, not very well informed (yeah my articulation went out the window… it’s late and I’m emotional and tired) but I found it highly funny and I just wanted to put a couple thoughts in.

    Love Harry Potter.

    Twilight itself= meh. It’s not the worst thing I’ve ever seen. I am rather disturbed by their relationship, which is unhealthy at best, codependent and emotionally abusive at its worst.

    Ultimately, Buffy did everything Myers is trying to do 500x better, with more complexity and authenticity, 10 years ago.

    Twilight fans are what make me go crazy. My sister is one. But she’s not one of the abusive ones. I can make fun of it to her and she sticks out her tongue and moves on. I’ve seen people get seriously chewed out for so much as mentioning they aren’t crazy about the series, though. That’s not cool, kids. I’ll defend Harry & co to the last, but I’m not gonna attack someone outright just for saying they don’t like him. I understand. If they want to get into it, I’ll get into it, but here’s a tip, Twilighters–just saying, “You are so wrong they are the best you are stupid!!!!” isn’t a defense, it’s a straw man attack. Ah well.

    I couldn’t even finish the first book. I simply can’t read page after page of how Edward is perfect and Bella can’t, for some reason, live without him.
    My main problem is figuring out why Edward liked Bella so much, especially after getting to know her. She has zero personality.
    If he can read minds, I’m sure that in the span of a hundred years he read some pretty intelligent minds…
    Also, the kids choose to do high school over and over again. I wish Meyer would have explained how they got driver’s licenses or permits with old birth certificates. I mean, we can’t really ignore the real fact like these just so the story can go smoothly and Edward can go to school and drive around…
    Good job coming up with the list. I enjoyed reading it more than reading Twilight!

    I agree on most of your points. Most of the girls and women I know that obsess over Twilight, are actually very rational people. I don’t understand what makes them say, “TWILIGHT IS TEH BEST BOOK EVAR!!11!” Maybe it’s because the majority of those women don’t read much?

    You and the others who compiled this list are my heroes. Seriously. I utterly despise this series. It is poorly written and I completely agree with your statement about adjectives, because, no just since you can use a bunch of adjectives does not mean you are a real writer. Give a first grader a thesaurus and I’m sure that kid will be able to produce something of more substance.

    Yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so you crazy little fangirls out there need to get your knickers out of a knot and calm the hell down. I mean, just the other day I was in Barnes & Noble and saw the Twilight books out on a table in a display for a middle school’s book wishlist. I remarked to my friend, a fellow Twilight hater, “These books are absolutely horrendous. They should not be allowed out here.” A girl sitting nearby heard me and looked at me with such loathing. She immediately slammed her book shut, stiffly stood up and walked away, shooting me death glares as she left. I mean, come on, honestly? Grow up.

    Want to read a real vampire series? Try the Sookie Stackhouse novels. Anyone can make a book into a movie, but a book into an appraised television series on HBO, now that requires actual literary skill.

    well, i read the first book thats actually called twilight when it first came out and thought it was the best book ever. i used to watch buffy and angel alot and loved the whole vampire shmeel, but i never read the sequel, new moon. then came the twilight craze. girls all over my school carried it around in their bookbags and were always reading it and talking about it and then i realized, why did i like that book? really, why did i like it?? and i started reading these things, and the steven king review on the book comparing it to harry potter. then i started reading new moon and i just couldnt keep reading it. i tried, i really tried. i thought, if i liked twilight so much when i was younger (i only read it once, while i read the whole harry potter series quickly and more than once) why dont i like new moon now?? so i put the book down and i will never read it again. i can already tell the rest of the series sucks.

Try Dracula, now that’s a good book.

    As much as the purists may want to disagree, literature is about making money. You may dislike the story, you may find grammatical errors, you may even think the message is dangerous, but if it SELLS then maybe instead of wasting your time compiling a list of why “Twilight” sucks, you may want to study why it has succeeded and see if you have the talent or ability to do so yourself. If you can’t make as much money and as many sales as this author has, then no matter what, she is more SUCCESSFUL than you are or may ever be.

    I read the whole series so no one can accuse me of not reading the books and not knowing what I’m talking about (although i don’t remember half of it because quite frankly nothing notable went on), and i read Twilight before anyone besides people that lived in Forks (my best friend’s grandma) and ate lunch at this small cafe. My friend bought it because she thought it had something to do with forks, and decided that it was half decent but not worth much rave and passed it on to me read. It’s not a horrible book because quite honestly there have been worse written, however in no way is Twilight worth half the hype its getting, in fact it should’ve stayed in the clearance sections of those small cafes in rather remote areas instead of filling shelves at every book store in the US. The poorly developed plot, lack of real drama or irony, and dull characters made for a very recycled book. The only reason i kept reading was with the false hope that eventually there would be some wild plot twist to amount to the hype. Needless to say that never happened. Now many of the fan’s excuses include; but it’s so romantic, the moral of the story is grand, and she uses such imagery. There are authors that use much better imagery than stephanie meyer. At any local bookstore you could pick up a better written romance. Does love conquer all? I don’t know but i surely don’t need a long drawn out series about a handsome vampire and a blande heroine to give me a generic answer.

    As for this list?

    These books are bad for this country sort of like McDonald’s is bad for this country. You can make the argument that “at least kids are reading” but with that same logic you can say “at least kids are eating” in reference to mikey D’s.

    It’s mindless fluff. It is a rationalization and people are wasting their time not being challenged by books. There are many great books that also manage to be good, entertaining reads. Even in Young Adult fiction (like Twilight is described as).

    There are books like Perks of Being a Wallflower, Feed, and Catcher in the Rye. None of which are the greatest books but at least they provoke thought in the reader.

    Twilight is mindless drivel that reinforces sexism and unoriginality. They aren’t even well written like Harry Potter is.

    People need to start reading their veggies instead of filling their minds with mcdonald’s.

    America is getting stupider and it’s things like Twilight leading these kids to believe that they understand what literature is that are causing it.

    I have to say one thing, Stephanie Meyer is clearly brilliant because she successfully wrote an ill-thought out series and knew her target audience well enough to sell to them. She spent very little effort and good huge rewards for that effort. Small risk, big reward…that equals good business.

    I think that the list is amazing and hysterical. I only read page 2, thanks to StumbleUpon, but most people don’t understand that the basics of this was stuff nerds like us understand. T. Pain being on a boat is from an SNL Digital Short. Chuck Norris. Well, that sells itself. The fact that the majority of those defending a poorly written series, are choosing to ignore the bits and pieces they do understand:

    If someone writes about your poor grammar, stating something that you would most likely deny if guilty, you absolutely do not fight back with PROOF that it is a fact. All of the Twilight fans I know have HORRIBLE grammar and use chat speak on a daily basis, so thanks for proving that with your stupidity. Not the author, the obnoxious fan girls, which includes children, teens, and adults alike.

    Another factor that annoys me about the defenders, is that they don’t seem to understand that it is not necessary to post PARAGRAPHS of false reasoning. So maybe the reasons that the author gives are a bit far-fetched, but most of them are entirely true and cannot be denied. Stephanie Meyer has really nothing to be proud of except for the fact that a) She has tons of money and b) The money comes from a mob of rabid groupies that probably stalk her. Oh wait, NOT a plus.

    I’ll leave it all at that, because I know that I will probably be tracked down by said mob, and have my head bitten off for the mere fact that, the people against Twilight have the best intentions and reasoning. Even if I DID like Twilight, I would only admit that it is a funny and correct list.

    By swearing, acting obnoxious or stating rude comments against the author of the blog, one reinforces the author’s ideas. If you enjoy the Twilight series, fine. Acting as if a puppy was just shot and eaten in front of you when someone criticizes Twilight diminishes your credibility.

    The Internet does allow for posting ones ideas freely and thus the author, all the commenters, and even myself may post what we wish. The author of the list has every right to post it. If people dislike the list, they are not required to read it on the hour every hour. They may offer a dissenting opinion however they wish. A dissenting opinion that is poorly phrased may not be useful.

    must admit reading twilight made me appreciate Harry Potter and JK Rowling much more as a writer. I actually thought I was reading a bad fanfiction when I read twilight online. Twilight is seriously just an empty, empty series. The only characters worth anything are Jasper and Jacob but Meyer being the crappy writer she is, doesn’t realise this and relegates them to the dark.

And I agree that Meyer was eh-okay on her writing, but you have to keep this is mind- this was her first book ever, and it all started with a creepy dream she had.

    over heals for Edward because Meyer makes glittered men who watch you at night and is over protective sound damn sexy.

    And to the people who is totally bashing on Twilight, calm down. You’re just as bad as the people who are far too protective over Twilight.

    So my friend sent me the link to this. I took the time to read it and found out two things: 1. Most of the reasons are repeated.. several times and 2. The Chuck Norris joke was absolutely ridiculous. Honestly, it was a little funny, but a complete waste of your time. If you hated Twilight (and the rest of the saga), why did you take the time to put all the reasons down when you could simply have said “The books suck.”?

    P.S. I loved the books.

    So, I was totally drawn into Twilight and read the series obsessively, and since I’m an English teacher the entire time I kept telling myself, “This writing really is god awful.” And it really is. Painfully god awful. But, I still went to see the movie, which was horribly done. I don’t know why the story still draws me in, I think I’m just delusional. But anyway, I just wanted to comment because I actually really enjoyed this list, particularly 69, 75, 80 and 81.

    Everyone just calm down, that woman made a boatload of money and Twilight will still go on even if people hate it. Basically, the world will not end just because people don’t agree with you :)

    Ok so I read the first book all the way through. My friend recommended it to me and told me it was “the best book he’d ever read.” So I gave it a shot. I got about halfway through it (dragging my ass the whole way through) and asked my friend how in the world he could think this was the best book ever. He swore to me that the last few chapters made it worth it. So I kept reading….and reading…and reading. Eventually I got through the entire book, and was still not understanding what was so great about it.

    I understand the appeal to the specific audience it was written for, pre- teens to late teens, primarily girls. I’m totally cool with people enjoying the book, to each their own and whatnot. What I still have trouble understanding is how it got to be so rediculously popular so quick. I mean seriously, my friend who recommended it to me was, at the time, a senior in high school who would never read a book out of pure enjoyment if his life depended on it (I know this because he told me). So my main gripe with this book is that I have no idea why people such as my friend, and hundreds of people like my friend, who have never taken to reading any books ever had suddenly become so obsessed with these books… it just makes no sense to me.

    And as far as it being good literature, people who think that were probably dropped on their head as a child….repeatedly…

    While the Twilight books are awful and I worry about the intelligence of anyone who enjoys them; this is probably the worst written topic on the subject.

    Sarah Rebecca actually made more grammatical errors in her list than the writer of Twilight did in the same amount of character duration in her first book.

    Furthermore Sarah’s are far worse because she appears to be on a high horse; which I’m sure is buckling under her immense wit.

Please do not put all of twilight’s fans into such a terrible category. The books are good, and I enjoyed reading them.

    I agree with all the people stating that your reasoning is pathetic. Firstly, Twilight is a FICTITIOUS book; therefore, things are obviously going to be abstract and unrealistic.
    Meyer was trying to move AWAY from the idea of the conventional vampire, hence the whole no fangs thing. Having another typical vampire story would be, as you said “predictable and boring.”
    If you’re going to state that Twilight sucks, you might as well state that Harry Potter sucks, because they’re both about completely unfathomable things that little girls dream about.
    “Vampires can’t get people pregnant! SPOILER.” -I reiterate my point: it’s fictitious.

    Get over yourself.. I understand that you’re jealous of the success of this book, but next time you want to criticise the author’s writing skills, you should probably keep in mind that this is her FIRST novel, and she must be good if the book has been this successful.

  115. Posted March 29, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    I read the first book long before the craze began. It was a decent book. It sucked me in and made me want to find out what will happen. So I read all 4 books and then realized that nothing happens. Really. Not enough action for the thousands of pages read.

    I also wholeheartedly agree that the Bella-Edward relationship should not be viewed as a model relationship. When I learned about the 12-year-old girls who love this book, I worried about what society will view as a healthy relationship in 10 years when these young girls are beginning their adult lives. Scary.

    I am a guy that loves Twilight. I am not gay. I don’t like it for the whole sparkly vampire crap aspect of it. I like it for the storyline and the characters (i.e. Carlisle, Alice, Jasper).

    You have the worst reasons in the world for why Twilight sucks. Take #94 for instance….”It’s offensive to the male and female race and just the entire race as a whole.” Since when are male and female RACES? I’m pretty sure those are genders.

    Also, since when is Bella the perfect character? Bella is clumsy, plain, and extremely pale. I’ve always thought that perfect women characters were beautiful and graceful.

    I might have missed it in the comments, but otherwise I’m surprised that many of Twilight’s flaws mentioned here in the list and in the comments are being blamed on the author. An author’s job is to write a good story, yes (and by good I mean by definition, not in one’s opinion).

    But there is so much more to the process once a writer has a book deal. Writing a book, as any author will tell you, is a collaborative effort. Which means it’s not solely the author who’s to blame if a book is less than satisfactory. As a copyeditor, it’s my job to ensure an author looks his or her best. Countless professionals read a book once a deal’s been signed. If there is anyone to blame for plot holes, grammatical errors, and poor character development, and any other inconsistencies or inaccuracies, ultimately that should be the publisher.

    Aside from the author, who’s main goal is really only to tell a marketable story, the editors, copyeditors, proofreaders, and the like — who are paid to ferret out anything that make the book and author and publisher lose credibility and who should be making suggestions to the author so he or she can produce a well-crafted story — are responsible for putting out good-quality fiction, regardless of whether it’s by Meyer or King.

    Ultimately, however, if the main objective of a publisher is the bottom line, which it is, kudos to Little, Brown for recognizing a marketable story and series when they saw one and for advertising it to obvious great effect.

    Kudos as well to Meyer for following a dream (most of all) and for creating characters and situations that, while fantastical and flawed, even sometimes irritatingly so or annoyingly limited in emotional range, yet allowed millions to relate, which is a main reason that many, including me, liked the books in spite of recognizing amateur writing. While it’s true Meyer’s writing leaves something to be desired, especially in a technical sense, she *can* and likely will get better with practice. And seeing as publishers usually demand more from a successful author, she’ll be getting lots of that. We just have to give her some room, some freedom to develop her own style and tell her own stories.

    Thank you so much for this! Twilight makes one realize just how sad our society has become in regards to literature. I agree with every point you made, but have one more to add:

    95.) Stephanie Meyer can’t write; therefore, there are no real climactic moments in any of the books. Every time she begins to build one, it just stops.

    Haha, yes, I have to admit, I fell into the Twilight obsession around September of last year. And now I totally regret it. God, I even bought a shirt. How lame was that?

    After reading this, I really am ashamed that I had fallen so in love with the series. It wasn’t… what I expected it to be when I first read it. But the hype was all around me, and I joined in with the obsession. All the fan girls were sighing about how they’ll never get their own Edward — and my best friend was telling me every single day: “This is the 15th time reading this book!” very excitedly, I may add.

    The only thing I kind of like about this book is Taylor Lautner. But not really. And he’s not even in the book. He’s in the movie.

    No offense, but I have found the commentary following to be much more entertaining than the list itself. Yes, it is a list. Yes, it is some one’s opinions. It is a book. You either like it or hate it. Books were meant for enjoyment. If you don’t like it, don’t read it and forget about it. It is a popular series, but that doesn’t do anything but make people read it and buy it. I think it wrong to shove your own opinions on other people. So live and let live I say.

I am 26 years old and enjoy fiction stories. I loved reading your list and found most of the reasons you hate Twilight amusing. The rest I have heard before, so pardon the lack of humor on my part for them. I do have a comment on one of your reasons in particular, #77. I totally thought the same thing and if thought about more deeply by fellow Twilight readers, it is most disturbing in a real-life sense. You don’t like it, sue me.

    Sorry, but I loved the movie. Have not read the books. I honestly was not interested in Twilight at all until I rented it on PPV this weekend. I thought that it would be a silly vampire teen movie. But, I was so surprised. I personally loved the fact that it wasn’t just a blood and guts vampire vs. garlic, stakes, and holy water movie. It had a plot behind the vampire aspect. It was about love from different worlds, caring more about someone else than yourself, inner struggle, choice and consequence, etc…

    Also, one of your c/o was about the sex aspect. What is wrong with taking a cult classic like vampires and making them moral. Why do you think they only feed on animals. She is creating an emotional side to the vampire character that I enjoy much better than …”oh I am going to suck your blood and make you one of my concubines.”

    First off, total kudos to the author of the list for making this. I’m 100% sure you knew you were going to have hateful death threats from teenage girls everywhere, but you still made it. Way to be. Secondly it was funny, and from what i’ve heard of the people raving about how incredible the book is, the list is pretty freaking accurate.

    Now that that is out of the way.

    Everybody quit freaking taking everything so freaking personally! Did you write the books? i didn’t think so. Don’t be so offended when someone doesn’t like it. You like the book, great for you, you’re allowed to think its an excellent piece of American literature if you want. BUT! and that is VITALLY important word…. but, EVERYONE CAN THINK/SAY/BASH/APPRECIATE/SLAM anything they want to. It’s called opinion, it’s called personal preference. Don’t threaten to kill someone because they don’t appreciate a book that you pray to.

    All I want to get across. Is stop being so freaking angry, its a book some people will hate it, some will love it. Why can’t everyone just respect that. Try saying what you think from a neutral standpoint instead of attacking someone for what they think.

    Twilight fans. You’re incredible, keep loving it.

Now, lets get one thing straight… your opinions are legitimate and I understand that they are shared by many people the world over, but when you insult my intelligence (because I am, of course, a Twilight fan) you are overstepping your bounds.

    I’m seeing books like this and others become popular with young people and don’t understand why it is so. First it was Harry Potter which was a good series in its own right. Not the best book or books I’ve ever read but still not bad really by any standard. What I really don’t get is why young people don’t really search for a good book. It isn’t that hard and you don’t really lose anything by looking. While I was waiting for Harry Potter series to finish I found and started reading books by a T.A. Baron who put a seemingly masterful twist on the story of Merlin and his life. I highly recommend it to any Harry Potter fan. Right now I’ve gotten into a combination of stark realism and fantasy in “The Black Company” which is about a band of free soldiers or mercenary company

    Not a fan of the books by any means, I think the characters are without fail vapid and weak. However, I don’t really think it’s doing any kids long-term harm. I can’t seriously see any sane 30yr old women saving themselves for a vampire (although this is the internet, so who knows).
    At least they get kids reading, never a bad thing. And frankly, I’m happy it’s not sexual. To whoever said they didn’t remember Anne Rice novels having substantial sex scenes, that’s quite wrong. There are a number of them, and her books in general are highly eroticized. I read them at 13 and honestly, I’d be happier having my kids read less graphic stuff at that age. Since the book is aimed at young to mid-teens, it seems right.

    I would just like to point out that it is possible to enjoy reading Twilight without becoming a fangirl, that isn’t a black & white situation.

    That being said, I think you should give the book series credit, because they do have an escapest quality to them, its easy to get lost in the story. Also, if you wanted realistic characters/events… read non-fiction books… this is fiction, therefore, it doesn’t have to be “real,” just imaginative.

    It’s pretty sad when you have to escape into the mind of a boring teenage girl that has no personality and her only passion is to screw an ancient vampire.

    Also, for all those who beleive that Twilight is better the Harry potter, PUHLEASE. Meyers and Rowling shouldn’t even be in the same category. Rowling wrote on napkins. It takes serious dedication to do that. Plus, she has trunks full of development on every character that people will never know about. Every single one. She even has Dean Thomas’s full bockground written down somewhere. You can’t tell me that Ms. Meyers has the full background of Mike hidden somewhere when all she focused on ever was Edward and Bella.

    I could go on forever, but I’ll spare the Twilight fans the heart attack.

    Book One “Twilight” was tolerably written, and not a bad concept. I might finish that by saying this book on its own would have quietly served as a series without my explicit complaint.

    Unfortunately the writing grew progressively worse and more convoluted as they wore on. It would stand to a logical form of reason that they should have gotten better, however only the first book had any clear inspiration or plan at all. Simply put: New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn felt as if they were written to cash in on the first books hype.

    As for inspired writing, read the classic John Milton book Paradise Lost. Powerfully poetic imagery, beautiful flow, and a fine manner of storytelling. Just don’t read the sequel, I can’t even remember the name, what I do remember was forcing myself to complete the book trying to understand why Milton ever allowed it to print. Anyways, that’s as far as I go.

    Yes, I am aware of my own grammatical errors. Could have been worse, I read that overblown ego trip “A Million Little Pieces” by James Frey once too. For some reason I thought he was going to choke up a volkswagon piece by piece before the end…

    Just my opinion mind you, and as for Stephen King he has a few worthy reads, but a lot of crap as well. Never take someones opinion of how terrible something is; You will never appreciate how terrifying a 350 pound woman in leather pants is until you turn and look yourself. Twilight is only a 300 pound lady in spandex ;)

    dammit, this made me want to read Harry Potter again.

    BTW, awesome list. Made me chuckle. It was that horrific “can’t stop even though I want to” sort of thing that made me read all 4 books. It’s good fantasy fluff for when the estrogen spikes and you need girly crap… but other than that, it’s bad. Very bad.

    Lol ‘T.

And may i point out that Harry Potter is also crap and her writing style stinks, and Twilight is wore then that, you want a good book about Twilight? Get the Night watch by Sergie Lukvenyenko that man is a true genius

    Wow! Funny! So much attention to Twilight–the author must’ve done something right–even if it wasn’t how it was written, I guess the story plot (or lack thereof…) — whatever, teens and other folks enjoyed.

    It’s not the first movie that millions love and hate and certainly won’t be the last–enuff said!

    I couldn’t even finish the first chapter of the first book, and I rarely put down a book even if I don’t like it. This list made my week, you have no idea.
    And I hate that people compare it to Harry Potter. Harry Potter is well written and actually has a lot of depth to it. Twilight is flat and seriously boring.

  157. Posted March 30, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    We have the same experience, LoDub…I tried to read Twilight because my girlfriend was and still is very engaged to it. Out of curiousity, I tried to read it. But then, as a teacher of writing, I found the works of my students (3rd year high school students in the Philippines are only 15 years old) to be of better quality than Twilight. So, I did not even attempt to finish the first chapter. Likewise, when my girlfriend pulled me, literally, to watched the movie, I just snoozed my way out until the part where they played “the vampire baseball”

    i read the twilight series and thought it was exactly what i expected it to be. MADE FOR TEEN GIRLS.

    you dont go to a chick flick and expect it to be on the same level as a academy award winning drama.

    teen girls are also obsessed over hannah montana and zac efron. I dont see anyone ripping them apart. Because they are as corny as the audience they are intended for, teen girls.

    all of you obsessing over how bad twilight sucks are just as pathetic as all the girls that think twilight is the best book ever.

    the movie however… THAT you can bash as much as you like. i watched a bootleg version online and couldnt even make it through the whole thing.

    Posted March 30, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    This is my theory:

    You see, Twilight isn’t well written at all. Plus, I waited all 4 books for a plot to arise, and it never did. But here’s the thing; it’s the first book anybody’s read. THAT’S why it’s so popular. Girls who have never read anything else read Twilight and fall in love with it, but what they don’t realize is that it’s not Edward they’re in love with, it’s reading. They don’t understand that there are so many books out there that are much better than Twilight, because they’ve never read them.

    I’ve read them, and they’re not that amazing.

    But the reason I tolerated them was because they were an easy read, and I think Twilight’s a pretty love story. Not because they were well-written, in any sense.

    It’s a good story, but it could have been written so much better by someone else. Even in saying that, some of your points are stupid and have no real basis. I agree that Bella has no personality in the movie, but the book does get a little deeper into her character. Either way, what is so wrong with letting teenagers just enjoy the books for what they are? At least they are reading. The books really aren’t challenging, but they can pose as a doorway to other literature in a world where reading literature is becoming scarce with young people. I applaud anyone who tries to aid in the intellectual development of the next generation, even if they don’t meet up to the standards that others hold them to.

    however i do agree with some of the points made above,
    but saying you shouldnt read it just because “its stupid” is rediculous. Thats YOUR opinion. There’s no facts that prove “its stupid”, and by giving this as a reason not to read the book, it just makes you look like a dumbass, and not to mention it makes you look really ignorant.

    Posted March 31, 2009 at 12:03 am

    You forgot to mention the annoying filler junk there was, like the side stuff about bella’s other friends (I guess you could call them friends?) is really pointless and boring just because no relationships ever develop between her and her normal “friends”. It’s like when you have to write a 600 word essay and only write 450 words, so you go through and change words like “can’t” to “can not” and add extra “the”’s and “it”’s.

    Oh yeah and I wish I had a dollar for every time she overused the word “grimaced”.

    But I mean I did find the books incredibly entertaining to read, I just wish it was written better, perhaps by a different writer. Some of the ideas are good. It’s a fun, very simple read- but is nowhere near being in the same league as Harry Potter. It’s too bad, the story had some potential.

    i watched the movie. for some reason there are a whole lot of college aged women who think edward is hot, so they watch the movie, and though the book was amazing.

    i wanted to puke watching the damn thing. i laughed hysterically when i saw his sparkling skin. he needs a haircut. and if he wasnt in twilight, the guy playing him would be looked at like a pale, pasty, emotionally disturbed kid on the street and most women would want to be with him. the plot was pathetic. there is only so much filler that can be used, and when there is no character development, its a waste of resources. there is absolutely nothing that calls out romance in this book. just whiny teenagers (even though one is over 100 years old) caught in a puppy love, and a cliche fetish thrown in. of course, saying this to my buddy in front of my gf almost got me crucified…

    If the book is so undeserving of the reviewer’s attention, why is it getting so much of the reviewer’s attention? I think the notion that Twilight is ineptly written is fabricated–it springs from resentment of the success the series has enjoyed. If one really thought the book was such dreck, one could not have gotten past page one and acquired enough knowledge of the characters and story to come up with the phoney-baloney litany of laments.

  187. Pernille K. Westby
    Posted March 31, 2009 at 12:03 pm

    The reason why Bella is portraid as full of flaws, is because the book is written from her point of view- and she has a low self esteem. And as far as Edward being too perfect goes, that’s totally wrong. He has such a low self esteem, he has lived alone for hundreds of years, he’s oldfashioned, and over-protective and stupid at times. You really don’t seem to underdstand that just because both of the characters look good, doesn’t mean that they’re not perfect. If you’re such a fan of litterature as you seem to be, you should read the books yourself, and create your own image of Twilight. I think you might be surprised. Well, no matter what there will always be more people that love Twilight than the people who hates it. I don’t have a problem with those who just doesn’t read it because they don’t think they would find it interesting, but I just think it’s embarresing that you seriously use your spare time to write a list of 95 reasons why you hate Twilight. Do something better with your time, write a book.. Maybe it will be better than Twilight (ha!).

    A few comments on the rest of the posts;

    #16 – You obviously haven’t read all of the books to say this. Bella gets a better self-esteem, she grows up a lot, she apreciates her life better. Edward also gets a better self-esteem, he learns to loosen up a little, he realises that he isn’t destroying Bellas life. Jacob grows up, and realises that he’d rather have Bella as his friend than to not have her in his life at all. And other characters also develop a lot.

    #25 The vampires in Twilight don’t have fangs. This isn’t dracula.

    #27 Ofcourse she use the word ’said’ many times in the book. Stupid.

    #31 What abour Aro, Carlile, Shioban, Laurent, Quil, Embry, Athenodora, Kachiri, Zafrini, Eleazar & Alistair? Are those names too normal aswell?

    #32 Oh, and what was the name of the vampire you knew, again?

    #39 Stephenies didn’t expect that 10 year olds would read the book when she wrote it. It’s not like she can forbid them to read it or anything.

    Btw, I love Harry Potter as well- but, sorry to say this, IT HAS FLAWS TOO!

    In the end, I’m just glad that I’m not you. And that I’d rather use 15 minutes defending something I love, rather than using 2 hours working against A BOOK that I hate. Really, if it was environmental damage or animal cruelty that you were finding 95 reasons to hate I would be aplauding – but a book. It’s embarresing. And you know it too.

    First of all, yes, I am a fan of Twilight, but not because I think it’s a great book/ series. I like the originality of it and the way she’s put in aspects and plot twists that most people wouldn’t normally associate with the vampire/ werewolf myths.

    That said, I do agree with parts of your list, but I have a couple major problems with it. Firstly, ‘breaking rules made by more esteemed authors’? The whole point of fiction is that you create your own rules. Just because Anne Rice or Bram Stoker came up with particular rules that applied to their characters, and authors since have stuck by them, doesn’t mean they *have* to be followed. There’s a reason we don’t know what a vampire exactly looks like: it doesn’t exist. So who’s to say a vampire couldn’t sparkle? Just because it’s not likely doesn’t mean Meyer can’t make up her own rules for her own books.

    And secondly? ‘Edward is hot’, ‘Bella’s clumsy’, ‘we get the point’. Let me echo your own statement. We get the point. I have no doubt that if you hadn’t repeated the same thing over and over time after time, this list probably would’ve been half the length it is.

    Without having read the novels or seen the movie as of yet, I can only say that the hype and following is getting on my nerves – not the actual story or author (yet). My oldest daughter went with friends to the movie and she says she doesn’t see what everyone is all hyped up about.

    I’ve heard that both girls AND boys get into these books. Perhaps they are easy reads? I am going to read them eventually just to find out what it’s all about.

    The review started out ok – actually interested me (especially Stephen King’s comment, I’m a fan of his) but even halfway down the list it started becoming more of a bashing than a review. Had it stayed more objective, I think it would have been a decent review, albeit a bit one-sided.

A lot of these do make sense, althought the T.Pain one threw me off a bit. xD I have friends that are like number 78, and it does get incredibly irritating. I just don’t understand why people should bash someone for speaking their mind. I’m sure they wouldn’t like it if it happened to them. I thing everyone needs to just mature a little more.

    And if you read “Vampire Diaries” (which was written long before Twilight) they are very similar. I think Meyer might have copied it a bit.

    Add some reasons for why we hate the movie just as much:

    1. 6 montages in an hour and a half long movie is a few too many.
    2. In the scene in the forest their conversation goes along these lines:
    “I want to kill you.”
    “I love you.”
    “I dream about drinking your blood.”
    “You’re perfect.”
    “I’m sparkly.”
    “You’re beautiful.”
    “I’m imagining breaking your neck right now.”
    “It no matter.”
    3. Kristen Stewart literally says “It no matter.”
    4. The 8 minute scene in the hospital where Kristen Stewart hyperventilates and shouts out random sentence fragments over the prospect of her hot, seemingly mentally handicapped boyfriend leaving her.
    5. The line “Hold on tight, Spidermonkey.”
    6. The fact that other than Robert Pattinson, every other actor playing a vampire was somewhere between ugly and hideous.
    7. It was the same as the book.
    8. Jacob’s hairstyle.
    9. Everything else.

  203. Posted March 31, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    I agree with you 100%. I was beginning to think I am the only person on the planet who is not spellbound by this series. I am reading through the third book right now, simply because when I start something, I am determined to finish, but all I can see is a co-dependent relationship, an incredibly possessive vampire, who would not be considered wonderful in real life. Edward would be scary, because it seems at any second he is going to explode with anger. The other thing is the fluff that is added into the book. The fact that he wants Bella to marry him first. What teenage girl would agree to marriage these days? Not many. It is like a school girl fantasy. The never ending love story, with all the things girls are supposed to want, but created far too over the top to be at all enjoyable.

    Hi there Sarah Rebecca, interesting write-up. There’s a lot of anger and indignation in here.

    You know what, there’s just one last thing you need to do.

    Write your own novel.

    If you don’t get any harsh criticisms (like the one you just wrote), then I’ll be convinced you’re a better writer than Twilight’s author. :-)

    Have fun. :-)

    P.S: And oh, as you write this, the Twilight author is earning money left and right…while in contrast, this article is making quite a few cents (with thousands of page views of course).

    I never watched it because I hate both Stephanie Meyers’ first and last names, and I think the girl on the front looks ugly and sick, and pathetic, and oh-so-dark, and Edwuard looks like a gay in a Phantom of the Opera mask. Also, I saw an interview with Stephanie, and she totally looks like a burnt-out palm reader.

    Oh, and a human falling in love with a vampire? Let’s get serious here, unless we gonna go out an make a comedy of it. Which is something that could be debated.

    Heheh! At this rate I will HAVE to read the damn thing, just to see what all this fuss and hype is about and if it is really the great crime against humanity that so many people say it is. Fortunately I have better things to do – and read!

    That said though – from what you say, this seems like a continuation of the classic fantasy idea of perfection – ‘I’m perfect, I want to meet someone beautiful beyond everything’ – which dates back as far as you care to look and maybe should be accepted as a part of humanity’s dreams. Like the superhero genre (until Allan Moore took it and made it interesting by giving the characters flaws) or the James Bond arena (until it wisely realised not to take itself too seriously), only transposed to the female side. We accept the silkily perfect Bond and the boneheaded superheroes fixing the world with their fists with a certain wry acknowledgement of their silliness and appreciation of the spot that they do touch on in our souls. So why should this Twilight be any different? Why should this fantasy world of young girls suddenly become a feminist issue? It is somewhat dumb to dream wistfully of being as suave and all-purpose as a Bond or as powerful and free as a caped crusader. And of course it is also dumb to expect nice Edwards to turn up and look after you, just as it is dumb to expect anyone to BE this grand glamorous Edward or whatever he is. And it strikes me as somewhat uninteresting (my worst criticism for it) to set a story within that sort of an interaction so unquestioningly. But it’s all a part of fantasy life in a way, which has always been at odds with reality. And always will be. Even back to the old days when the girls would dream of their handsome princes and the boys would muse happily about the graceful woodman’s daughters etc. And Twilight and all the rest are only going to be symptoms of that rather than causes. If people are so lost in their fantasies as to let Twilight rule their lives and lose touch with reality – if they cant tell the difference between this fantasy and the reality around them or if they can no longer accept the reality because of it – then they are probably lost anyway and doomed to unhappiness even without Twilight to help them along the road!

    That said – it really doesn’t sound the most interesting book ever written! You want vampires, you want to look in stranger territories! Try Lucius Shepard’s ‘The Golden’ for a really unusual and interesting vampire novel.

    Ok this kind of irritates me. Sure, all the people completely obsessed with this book who treat is like a bible annoy me too…doesn’t mean I deliberately slam the book just to spite them. I found the books quite entertaining, and I think you missed most of the point – it is a LOVE STORY. It is CLICHE. It is ROMANTIC. And yes – people sparkle. And as for all your comments on how they aren’t very good vampires, seriously how cliche is that if you are searching for all the cliche reasons that makes a make up creature exactly the same in every god damn story. By the way, many of your comments contradict each other. First you complain about the ‘lack of sex’. Then you complain about ‘drug references’ cause the audience is too young. Seriously. I’m pretty sure sex is worse then a few drug references. The point Meyer is trying to bring across is that love is possible despite all odds – which for the audience attended, is a quite normal moral in most tween books. If you like a story, feel free to tell us how great it is. If you don’t like it, no one really cares. If somebody wants to read these books, I doubt that your one bad post is going to outweigh the millions of positive ones out there. Oh, and isn’t good literature SUPPOSED to be about being different, and NOT following all the ’so called rules of writing’ you speak of? There are no rules of writing. That’s the same as saying there is a limit to imagination.

    This is a pretty cool list. Does get kinda repetitive though which is funny because you say the book is repetitive. But, i like it. It’s funny, has alot of good points. I agree with the whole cult aspect and how ridiculous people can be about these books but come on. The fact that you dedicated so much time to writing this is a win for all twilight fans. You took “x” amount of time not only reading the book, but writing this and asking random people about it when you could have actually enjoyed reading a good book or four. So it’s kinda dumb. Funny that you get actual threats over this though. Makes me laugh. But if people wouldn’t sit around all day writing things like this and wasting there time twilight would probably be forgotten by now. But since it’s not, enjoy this article. It’s fun.

    Author, you’re an idiot. I will agree that Twilight is severely over-hyped, and that some things within the writing itself are annoying, and that the movie should NEVER have existed, but a lot also makes sense within the context of the books. If you’re going to say you have “95″ reasons that the books are bad, please actually have 95 reasons. This list was a bigger waste of time than the books.

    While I can agree with some of the points made in this list, I must say that it is rather repetitive and unnecessarily long. You criticize Stephanie Meyer’s writing style, but I don’t really see a difference between hers and yours. To be honest, at least she kept my attention for more than 30 seconds.

    I must agree with Jetsu1337 that you should actually have 95 “reasons Twilight is bad” if you’re going to post that statement.

    Also, please remember that this story was written for the entertainment of mid-to-late teens. It was never meant to be a great novel of literary genius.

    you, have no right bashing on the people, this book or this author.

    Stephenie Meyer has put her heart and soul on this book. That something you could never do. All you did was waste time on writing the sack of grabbage.

    Look around you, twilight is biggest thing every. I was not much of a readder untill I got to this book. Twilight is the first book I could say that I enjoyed everything about. Stephenie Meyer took a new idea about vampires than the traditional stories about vampires. IT called beening creatative. Something that you don’t know about. IF you think you could better then, try it. IF you can’t the shove off. You might be the type of person that sits in a chair all day eating chips with grease in them.

    People need to understand that the more popular a work of literature is, the more it will be critiqued. This book was not as well-written as much as it appealed to our emotions. Most Twilight lovers don’t know a good book. They just know what an easy-read is. Like, real good books are truly genius. Though, there is nothing wrong with liking Twilight, I must say you have bad taste. There is nothing wrong with having a negative opinion. Take constructive criticism and don’t act like you have the right to defend the work as if you were the one who wrote it personally.

    HOWEVER, other than comedic appeal, not all these reasons were VALID on why we should hate Twilight. If you put, 95 things you noticed that were off thats one thing. But telling someone to hate something that someone else may actually like is overboard. Though your humor was catchy. I just think being obsessed about this book because you are bored with your life and looking for a happily ever after that will never happen, realistically speaking, is overrated. Like seriously: GROW UP

    Aside from that, the whole vampire concept has been stretched so far and so thin, that there are no original ideas about them left. All vampire books are roughly the same. I liked your list, it was silly, and cynical. Bella is a horrible character giving a bad name to strong girls everywhere who pride themselves on grace and independence. Meyer has written a story that basically says “Hey girls, find a man that will make your decisions for you and make all your dreams come true. And if he takes the engine out of your car so you can’t leave him, well, that means he loves you!”
    It is the essence of retarded. End of story.

I have not, however, been able to read book two, instead have moved onto the House of Night series, which gives a far more interesting look at teenage vampires… with much more realistic scenes for teens of THIS era. I suggest it to all those who decided to flame twilight. It would be an interesting book, if the characters had been handled differently.

    Really, you’re saying that Twilight fans are dumb and obsessive and teenage girls, or that’s what I gathered. I know that they are obsessive, but you seem obsessed with it too, or obsessed with hating it. I personally know some people who love Twilight, and many of them are smart. Dissing someone’s intelligence for liking a book that gives them an escape into another world is a bit harsh. As for it being a teenage girl’s book, I know adults who love the book and I know straight guys who love the books. I love reading the Twilight books. If you don’t like them then don’t read them. Don’t dis people because they like the books because I’m sure that there are books you are obsessed with because you can relate to them or because they take you to another world. If you don’t get what I’m saying then you’re not as smart as you think you are.

    So, I agree whole-heartedly that everything having to do with the Twilight Series is a great big pile of horse crap, but you are making everybody with that opinion look like a complete retard. The fact that only one book in the “Twilight Series” is called Twilight means nothing. In t “Hitchhikers Trilogy”, which is one of the greatest series ever written, only one of the books has the word Hitchhiker in it and there are FIVE books, not three. It doesn’t matter. Also, you say that the books are unoriginal (a statement with which I completely agree) yet you point out that shiny vampires (one of the only original things about the books) is a flaw. Think about what you say next time before you make yourself and all those who share your opinions look like morons.

    I liked the Twilight Series. It may have been childish but it is written for teens and you. You can’t seem to get over the fact that Bella is so perfect but it sounds more like you are jealous of Bella and maybe the fact that she’s not alone. Have you ever fallen in love? Not just puppy love but true love? Maybe that’s why you are so bitter toward the story.

    If you think it is so terrible, why don’t you write a book and see how far you can go with it? Let the readers decide if you are right or wrong. That would be the best way to take out your frustrations about the Twilight Series.

    Like you said everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I think some of your reasonings have some ground but they are few and very far between. Especially with you repeating a lot of them. So technically you don’t have 90 (whatever) reasons you actually have fewer. I don’t think it is right that you use a dead persons name to knock what you don’t like. You don’t know if they would have liked it or not. You are not them and you don’t have their mind. So next time keep the references of other people who could not have possibly told their opinions out of it.

    I will point out a huge flaw in these criticisms. Saying that Anne Rice’s vampire’s aren’t “girly men” is a little wrong. Most of the male vampires have homosexual tendencies. Also, Anne Rice has more than male vampires in her books. By the way, I love Anne Rice. She is the greatest vampire author of all time.

    Okay, first off… you say Twilight readers are stupid and mindless. Well? Look at you!? Who has time to write 95 resons on why to hate a much loved book. I mean it isn’t our faults you are to blinded and stupid to not understand the true point of the book and enjoy it as much is everyone else. Plus, these aren’t really even 95 reasons, they say the same thing over and over! Bella isn’t a stupid person without a brain. She ws actually very smart, and she did love Edward, very much. Yes, reason 15 is stupid parents don’t always hover, they have trust. Charlie is very protective of Bella if you actually read the book you will come to learn that. Jacob was very nice, but Bella can’t help she doesn’t love him the way she loves Edward. Plus, Jacob is completely in love with Rennesme, which in my opinion is a creative and beauitful name. The book isn’t even about sex, what person would say it’s not even a rea book because it doesn’t have enought real sex? So, just get over yourself. The books are anazing, you are self centered and heartless. I’ll pray for you and keep your opinions to yourself, cause they are bad ones.

I was considering it until I heard the vampires sparkle :P i was like um wtf? then they apparently have no heart beat = no blood flow = no cellular respiration = no movement = dead = not able to do anything.

    The plot has clearly been taken from a million other books and btw literature is considered to be novels such as Milan Kundera, Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Kurt Vonnegut, George Orwell. Literature is supposed to be a metaphor, microcosm, analogy, well written, like these books are, not cliche ;)

    Also, quite hilarious to see these 13 year old girls going crazy over a 109 year old virgin, who is in a teenager’s body. I know plenty of girls, one who reads daily, who threw the books away because of the “lack of substance, the crappy writing” etc.

This is ok,” and then didn’t touch them again. I’m neither obsessively addicted to them, nor obsessively hateful either.

Now she is a cool high school drop out that is too cool too read. Anything a teenage girl is going to fall over heels for is not going to be a good book. I would rather spent my time reading something intelligent and yes not something where someone gets knocked up because of a vampire. Vampires are dead… they do not make sperm anymore. dead = no sperm = impossible to get someone pregnant . WOW the math is outrageous! I have to agree that Anne Rice wrote great vampire books.

    P.S. I’m not anti-twilight, read what you want, all I’m saying is that if you want to live a book (Figure of speech, Duh) this is not the one I would spend my time on. Like I said, it is a great waste of time, but, nothing to marvel at. If you want to truly read a book, try Jeffrey Archer, John Grisham, David Baldacci, when you finish one of their books, you can laugh at the genius of the plot, every word implying something else.

    @vanessa
    If Vampires are dead and don’t make sperm anymore, they should have cuts in every part of their body. As you said, they are dead, so they obviously can’t produce new skin cells. So what is the huge myth that vampires (Together with practically every other undead type creature) heal nearly instantaneously. As you said, impossible.

    Another question on this outrageous math.

    Vampires are undead creatures, through the same logic that you said, they’re dead, so they don’t produce sperm, you can say “Well, they’re dead so they shouldn’t be walking around, or moaning, or biting people.” Obviously, they’re undead (emphasis on un) they are neither dead, nor alive. Plus, they’re mythical creatures, MYTHICAL CREATURES! You don’t apply rules to mythical creatures.

    I do agree with a lot of what you said…though you could have been a little more creative with the book bashing. Stephanie Meyer is not that bad of an author, and as far as her meandering away from the ‘typical’ vampire novel, bravo. People get tired of reading about the same bloody, human killing, vampires. Not all vampire books have to have smut in them. Bella is a total klutz but Meyer wanted her to be a typical, awkward teenager, though I do not know many that trip or stumble every 5 seconds.

    It did get a little boring during the second book, and it is a little ridiculous that they fell for each other so quick…although I do not know many girls who would not mind if Edward Cullen caught them…but it is a little unnerving how Bella was not terrified every second with him…and creepy that he knocks her out every time they have sex and she seems to be fine with that.

    They are decent books and I am just glad that people are reading instead of gaming or something, lol. It kind of makes me happy that not EVERYONE likes them, it keeps conversations spicy, lol.

    personally i have not read the books nor do i care to, but i’ts my opinion that for someone so intent on not liking the book you sure to give it a lot of attention. secondly, get over yourself. obviously for all your bashing on the author’s creativity you don’t have a lot of your own, you repeated yourself several times, taking the same concept and rewording it.

    no, id didn’t think it was worth my time, but if you kept reading it you must of thought it was worth yours. you know what they say -
    those without talent become critics.

    “We read the entire series just to laugh at the stupidity of it.”

    you just helped the popularity by reading the books and making this list.

    I’m neither a fan or a hater. I’ve only seen the movie… If you really want to get rid of Twilight never mention it again and hope it goes away. lol. right now you are just being counterproductive. My guess is you are one of those people that loved it when it first came out and once it got popular you turned your back on it.

    Are you sure you read the Saga? Because most of your reasons aren’t true. Meyers DOES mention fangs. Bella never listens to Edward especially about Jacob. In fact she stands her ground so much that Edward changes his opinion and lets her see Jacob. Twilight is a fictional book and if you ever took a literature class, when writing a fictional book, you have to think about your audience and what they want to read. Which Meyer does exactly right. Also whose to say that vampires have fangs and have to have flaws… they don’t exist!!!! At first your list was full of reasons and then it just turned into a list of your nonsense. Also, did you forget that teenagers DO fall in love that quickly and that exactly what Bella and Edward are. Teenagers grasp to the thought that “they never felt this way about someone” and automatically assume its love. So that is very typical of them to feel the way they do. People like twilight! Get over it. Stephanie Meyers got all the fame she deserved for these books. As for your other reasons I don’t have time to waste correcting you on everything you have no idea about. Oh, and I know plenty of straight guys who like twilight. Maybe because I like it. Sorry if you will never experience that.

    “It obviously appeals to young girls, and I don’t see why people are so keen to crush them by telling them that’s it’s a horrible book and a waste of time.”

    Maybe because it’s crap like this that’s teaching our girls to be submissive and totally dependent on men? Not only does Bella’s entire life revolve around Edward, Edward is also an abusive creep. All this book does is encourage submission and domestic violence.

    Be comforted by the fact that there is a small sect of twilight fangirls who do recognize that it is horrendous writing and not in any way literature. I simply do not always want to read “literature.” Don’t write us all off so easily; some of us are intelligent. Twilight is to reading as toast is to making breakfast. Of course there are better things out there, but you don’t always want to expel the effort, and it fulfills its purpose.

    Wow, does this really make people feel better about themselves? Finding something to bash? Agreed that you do have your opinion I think you might have gone a tad over board on some of your points. Yes the typical vampire doesn’t sparkle, but why should the author be contained by the constraints set forth by previous authors? The amendments change, so why can’t a FICTIONAL book as well. I liked the series but like some wish there was a bit more to them. The Harry Potter series in my eyes had more connections that made reading the series worthwhile, while this series was basic and easy to guess each next step. Anywho, people need to stop freaking out when someone has a contrasting opinion, and those with the contrasting opinion need to lighten up and get out our your own little ‘perfect’ box as you see it.

    Also, it is rather amusing to peruse this and read such vehement responses! Take into account that really, of all the pertinent issues in the world to take a passionate stance about, this is one of the most trivial out there.

    I’ve taken baths deeper than you.

    If you had actually read the book and looked at the inner meaning you would have seen you are entirely WRONG on everything here. I went through each of your reasons and thought of a rebuttal to each. You are just pissed that there is a huge following of the books. I did not like the movie. I believe the director sucks and did not give the book justice. Maybe you should find something you are good at or some better way to spend your day then tear down works others took more time on than you ever will on something.

    wow! geez if you hate twilight so much, why do you care so much to spend your time writting a list about it.. plus everybody has a different view of how they see vampires.. second vampires and werewolfs have a history its not just a facebook ap! third which if you actually read the books bella didnt try to kill herself, idk where you got that one from… There are better books out there… and there is a actually plot.. maybe you dont see it cause your to close minded… and if you think harry potter is better for little kids to read…ya lets have our kids think they can fly on a broom stick or that they have powers. and go and fight evil snakes and gaint spiders. with moving stair cases… the movies are kool but the books are boring… people have different interest so why bash on a book you didnt take the time to enjoy… for all those who said i just read the book to see what idiot dies first or if bella gets over edward.. i think your just making an excuse to cover up that you exactly did enjoy the books and you couldnt put them down cuz if you hate them so much why would you spend days read like 7 hundred page books..??? i dont see it after the first book wouldnt you think if you didnt like it you wouldnt go rent or buy the second and the third and fourth…??? i think your just trying to fit in and say you dont like twilight cuz your too embarsed to admit it.. 95 reason not to like twilight? i’d say alot of these reason dont make sense and that most of them are stupid and repeated… and if you know anything about writting books. a lot of books are based off the author’s life and what they wish they can be or a situtation they have been in so back off her… most others write about their fantasies…

    The list is quite hilarious, I presume a lot of it is in jest but the tone is quite venomous so I guess you really don’t like Twilight…you’recertainly getting a lot of recation anyway, so well done for that.
    I have to say, I read all of the books recently and while they are not particularly well written, and books 2 and 3 should really be combined because it’s the same story stretched out to a ridiculous length, I have to say Catherine Hardwicke did a fantastic job with the film adaptation, which I found much more enjoyable than the books.

    Hmm. I was wondering if you would mind if I linked to this on my blog, for pure amusement. It is an excellent list and I would love to share it with people I know.

    Hope you write more like this.

    Personally I haven’t read Twilight (except the last Chapter of the last book, just to ruin it for an obsessed friend =)) and due to all the hype I probably won’t. I have too many Twilight obsessed friends. I went and saw the movie due to them and got slandered for not having any idea what it was about; down to not knowing they were vampires.

    Stephen King makes a very good point.

    alright, you say we’re all allowed to have an opinion but when you’re trying to force your views on others it’s annoying and unnecessary. You’re just one of those people who love harry potter and can’t like anything else. i like both series, but just like twilight, harry potter has equally ridiculous plot lines and undeveloped characters. It is a book, who care if it isn’t original? Harry Potter isn’t original either, get over it. It is about entertainment and that’s it. Since when do authors have to create creatures in the exact way others have before? what does it matter? it is a fantasy and no more, so they can be however the author wants them to be. get over yourself.

    I read Twilight over two years ago and it was good. Not the best thing I’ve ever read, but it was enjoyable.
    I don’t understand why you’re spending time dwelling on this and building up so much hate for a BOOK. or book series.
    Really, you’re telling people that read Twilight and are in love with it to get a life. Why? Because they love Twilight? Well isn’t hate just as strong as an emotion?
    Isn’t it about time you got a life, too?
    I realize we’re all have our opinions and can say what we want, but most of your ‘reasons you shouldn’t read Twilight’ are repeated and dull, like you’re just coming up with things to fill in to make the list long.

    I haven’t read the books but I do have a comment about:

    #37. Why is it called the Twilight Series if only one book is titled Twilight?

    A book series is a sequence of books with certain characteristics in common that are formally identified together as a group. Book series can be organized in different ways, such as written by the same author, or marketed as a group by their publisher.

    This does not mean that they all need to have the same title.

  307. Posted April 3, 2009 at 3:05 pm

    Hi, Sarah, how are you?
    I see that you at least took the time to actually read the books before commenting on them! That’s good! I wrote an article on Twilight as well, and it’s important to at least have a head’s up on the facts before posting an opinion.

    I’m a guy! I’ve read the first three books of the Twilight series. I almost chose not to read the second and the third volumes because of my opinion on the first. However, I had a younger female friend who was vehement that I read the series because of how much she loved it. That’s why I decided to give Meyer a shot. Plus, I love werewolves, so I was anxious to see what happened with Jacob.

    No offense, but, I think it’s fair to say that most of your list was written in bias. While I can understand your frustration, ((I didn’t like the first book all that well either)) using the list to vent was certainly not a good idea. That is why you have received such negative comments—because of your negativity. You reap what you sow!

    Before you get upset again because of my comment, just realize one thing: I agree that Twilight could have been 10 times better. I also agree that the characters are pretty extreme and that the story could have developed more appropriately given different circumstances.

    The book was successful though, even with its apparent flaws. No matter how many people join this bandwagon, nothing can be done about the past. It was successful for as many reasons as it has flaws, so, who are we to judge?

    One question: Did Stephen King really say that, or did you just make it up? Cite your information so that we can all get the truth from it, otherwise we’ll be spreading false information. Do you really want to be the one who started a rumour? Cite your quotes from famous people, so that we have an idea that you’re being honest.

    There are so many other discussions that could be had with regards to this set of books, but none of them deserve the condemnatory remarks that have been posted. As far as civility goes, most of the people who posted here have a lot to learn.

    Thanks for sharing, and have a nice day.

    Oh, and, to explain something about book series: First-time authors rarely get a say in what a series of books could be entitled. It is mostly the well-known authors who produce series-starters that have a series title. Meyer’s publisher was most likely curious to see if the book would turn a profit first before considering signing her on for another in the same realm. Twilight came out as an exploratory novel. Because it did well in sales, her publisher most likely decided for her that the series would be called the Twilight series—which most generally happens with first-time authors and their novels: The series is named by its first book’s title. I hope that explains it. Because of the popularity of these books, one can ask for the title of the book itself and still get what one is looking for.

  308. Posted April 3, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    I agree with your reasons.

    I don’t ‘hate’ twilight; I just dislike it and the stupid girls who drool over it.

    Over all, I agree with your reasons. Kudos.

Don’t let men, or ANYONE, get in the way of you leading a healthy, fun, rewarding life; if they leave you, get over it because it’s not worth killing yourself over.

    When I first read Twilight, I thought it was everything, I read it practically everyday, and begged my dad to get me the last two books. But, now I realize Stephanie Meyer’s writing is mediocre. The books don’t “suck”, but I’d say she’s not the greatest writer. And also, you know how all you guys getting mad, because twilight fans are mad at you, GET OVER IT!!! Their crazy thinking they have “powers”, but you will never change their mind, until they realize that there are ACTUALLY better books out there.

    I enjoyed the Twilight series, and yes I have read Kurt Vonnegut. In fact, I did a book report on “Slaughter House 5″ when I was in grade 6. Just because someone enjoys a mindless read once in a while doesn’t mean that they are idiots.

    OKay, I haven’t read rice’s books yet, but I can’t wait to. The only thing I would add to this list (and it is an awesome list) is that Edward “Ted” Forester would hunt down Edward Cullen for fun. Ted is a vampire hunter/sociopath in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series, Written by Laural K. Hamilton. Those are real vampires.

    This list is made for people who have read that book, not for someone who has yet to read it…You should probably change the title of your list, it’s misleading. I stopped reading Goosebumps in elementary school, and would never entertain the possibility of picking this Walmart best seller up off a shelf. You should constructively direct your argument towards the people who are on the fence as to whether they should read it or not.

    FACT: there are books written about the philosophy of other cult classics such as harry potter, lord of the rings, etc

    FACT: this coul not be done with twilight. why? because, espite protestations that the twilight series is “deep”, it goes no deeper than Edward’s sparkling skin.

    p.s. dear Piper, it is in fact possible to be original in some aspects and unoriginal in others. Also, i do not think redefining the terms of vampirism counts as original, because the vampire has been a staple in folklore for many thousands of years, and i believe the author of this list, when referring to “more esteemed authors” probably intended to include the oral “authors” of thousands of years of cultural lore. but, i mean, if ms meyers decided that you no longer had to die to be a zombie, i guess that’d be okay with everyone. i mean, as long as the zombies were hot, right?

    Have actually read Twilight though everyone I know thinks I should because I like real vampire novels. If you want a good one read The Historian. Very deep, with real characters and conflict.
    Anyways, Twilight seems to be a cross between vampires and One Tree Hill/The OC or any other teen drama that comes to mind (except those are better/smarter/deeper) and then dumb everything down.

    Okay, I accept that you don’t like Twilight. This would be okay, as you have a right to your own opinion, if you’d read it. But not spelling Renesmee’s name right, not even once? This makes me doubt the truth behind your statements of how you read the entire saga, and therefore you discredit yourself by not being fully educated on that which you attempt to criticize. Aside from that, you contradict yourself repeatedly…ie., #21 and 39. #49…I’m extremely OCD about grammatical errors (of which you have many in your list), and I didn’t find a single one in any of the four books. #53…anyone who doesn’t live in a cave knows that it’s about vampires, whether they’ve read it or not. So, duh…why shouldn’t she put a great quote on the back, when it’s not revealing anything new anyway?? #52…do any guys actually like ANY romance novels, which is essentially what Twilight is?? #74…of course it doesn’t live up to its hype. Neither did Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings! That doesn’t make them entirely bad, it just means that people over-exaggerate their appeal. #84…no, Jacob didn’t abuse Bella, but neither did Edward. So why shouldn’t she be able to pick whoever she wants?

    I respect that you have an opinion about the books, but at the very least, you could express it in a way that doesn’t make you look foolish.

    It’s awful, really.
    Then again, I’m rather judgmental when it comes to this myself. Three of my friends (one girl and two guys) relate themselves to a certain threesome in the book, constantly. I’m allowed to hate it. I never hear the end of it. They don’t even know who Anne Rice is. WHY!?!! WHY!!!!?!?!?!?!!!!!!

    Yes, people are allowed to have their own opinion, they just need to make sure their opinion isn’t worthless. I’m sorry to say, in your case, it is.
    You repeated yourself constantly then criticized Meyer for “dragging on?” This list can be condensed into 5 semi-valid reasons.
    You contradicted yourself by saying that Edward is flawless in your 11th “reason” then calling him extremely possessive, abusive, and boring in number 19.
    You say that she broke rules set out by other authors – darling, since when are there RULES in writing fiction? Especially VAMPIRE fiction. Just because somebody else wrote about vampires before doesn’t make their theories “rules” And Meyer obviously did her research then decided to challenge the archetypal image of a vampire. This doesn’t make her a lousy writer; it makes her a great one.
    Mentioning her not-so-perfect grammar would have been a good reason had you not made plenty mistakes of your own.
    The fact that Meyer depicted Bella’s character in a way that every reader could fit themselves into her shoes does not make Meyer inadequate; but very skilled. Is she not making millions now? You’re either jealous of Meyer or just dense – I’m going with the latter.
    You said it yourself, people are allowed to have their own opinions, but they don’t have to go around passing judgment on opinions that don’t match their own.
    It seems as if most of your reasons are about you hating Twilight because everyone else loves it: Get over yourself. The world does not revolve around you and being negative doesn’t make you “unique” it just makes you stupid.

Vampires are such an unoriginal idea, and Twilight seems to be jumping on the bandwagon.

    Okay, you were a teenager once right? well id hope so.

    Charisle didn’t just turn all teenagers into vampires…he also turned Esme into one. also if you read the book a lot of the vampire’s are young when they are turned into vampires.

    Just because Twiliht is not a ‘typica;’ vampire book you shouldn’t just write it off. I liked the book because it was different in that regard..

    You just refuse to let people hope to find the man of their dreams… Even in if it was a guy named edward. Sometimes you just love people regardless of who they are..

    you dont sound like a very happy person…and hate is a bad word. her plot wasn’t the greatest (lets face it) but people found the story mystical and it gave them hope… and some people are crazy ( i mean people reacted the same way to harry potter…) so you have nothing there…

    4. And when he leaves she attempts to commit suicide.
    She doesn’t attempt to commit suicide. In fact, she says on several occasions that she’s going to keep her promise to him that she wouldn’t even if he doesn’t keep his promise to stay.

    5. Meyer is living out her own fantasies by writing about Bella, who is clearly herself.
    This makes it a bad book because . . . many authors have written themselves into the characters in their books. Or artists in their works of art.

    7. All the rules Meyer sets for being a vampire are broken by the end of the series.
    Which ones?

    8. Not only that, she breaks rules set by more esteemed authors.
    This is her own work, she’s not copying other vampire stories. Her vampire lore is different. Again, this makes it a bad book how . . .

    11. Edward is too perfect and has no flaws either. Even vampires should have flaws besides wanting to suck human blood because it’s natural to them.
    Edward does have flaws. The book is written from Bella’s perspective, and she thinks he’s perfect, so obviously from her point of view, he doesn’t have any. He does not see himself that way, nor do many of the readers. For one, if I were Bella, I would hate that Edward was constantly thinking I was too fragile to do anything for myself. Oh and wait, Bella does get frustrated with this about him in each book of the series. So one example of a flaw there.

    13. If Bella is so ‘plain’, why do so many guys fall for her within the first two chapters?
    Bella isn’t plain. She only sees herself that way. The books are from her perspective mostly, and there isn’t anyone in the world who truly thinks of themselves completely beautiful and without flaws. Edward is constantly telling her “you don’t see yourself clearly” when she comments on her plainness.

    15. Isn’t it convenient that her father always leaves her alone and doesn’t question her? Real parents aren’t that way.
    There are MANY parents that are this way. Ever heard of neglect?

    21. This book contains no real sex, so it’s not really a vampire novel.
    Since when do vampires and sex have to be constantly intertwined? In fact, as a fan of occult and vampire fiction, I find it ridiculous that the mainstream view of vampires comes down to cleavage, leather, and whips. Dominatrix and Vampires are not synonymous. Also, Stephanie Meyer is religious, and these are teenage fiction novels. From her perspective, keeping the sex out of it is good for her age group of readers.

    25. She never uses the word fangs in the entire book series, and it’s supposedly about vampire.
    Again, this is a different view of vampires. It’s her lore, not that of Anne Rice. These vampires don’t NEED fangs. Their teeth are sharp enough without them. We’re not talking double toothed puncture wounds here via Buffy.

    31. Meyer can’t think of original names. The only original name she used was Rennesme, which is combination of two names and doesn’t count.
    The names she uses for the characters are appropriate because of each character’s time-line. Edward was a popular name for his time. The same for the other vampire characters. Even those characters that are human have names that go along with their time. Bella’s friend, Jessica, is mentioned to have the same name as three others from her old school. It’s done to show the contrast, to explain that it is a common name for their age group. Meyer goes over all this in the novel.

    43. Stephen King agrees that Stephanie Meyer can’t write ‘worth a darn’.
    I’ve honestly never liked Stephen King. Umm the “Langoliers” anyone?Laughable.

    70. There’s nothing worse than a fan girl going insane over a fictional guy. It’s rather pathetic actually, so, um, yeah, get a life and keep reading those books, chickies.
    I really don’t see the difference in girls appreciating a character in a book much like others have done. For one example, there’s Romeo. He’s been idolized a lot longer. It’s tween fandom. He’s the new tiger beat guy. What teenage girl hasn’t idolized some character in a book, tv show, or movie? Guys idolize the girls in playboy or sports illustrated, or maxim. Idolization has many forms.

    I think you should have your opinions. Hate Twilight all you want. I just thought a few, non-aggressive opinions from a Twilight fan might be a breath of fresh air.

    I’m not a big harry potter fan so the few reasons you listed that involved HP I sorta threw out but all the ones commenting on Bella’s backward mindless female personality hit home. The books were something to read but I wouldn’t give them much fanfare.

    I cannot say, honestly, that it was a bad movie. I can not speak for the book, but the movie was not bad. I kind of liked the vampire baseball. How many movies or books do you really read or watch where vampires play baseball. They can only play when there is a thunderstorm… This is a small detail but not to bad. The whole “hunt” when the ponytailed vampire is after the girl and Edward “comes to the resuce,” of course it’s a little cheesy, who doesn’t like a little bit of a cheesy story every now and than. You are taking it a little to serious, relax, kick your feet up and breath easy for a little while. It was not that bad. Coming up with 95 reasons to dislike anything let alone a movie is a little overboard.

Well in Jamaica I could because of the amount of mosquitoes that come out at this time. I love though twilight because it lends a fairy pink to the place and building that are not so beautiful take on a romantic look.I have a builder friend whose used to make fun at some houses saying they could only be sld at twilight.
    So your Twilight book seem to be similiar some will hate it for the mosquitoes they find in it and some will love it because of the unrealistic characters and story line. So he what the heck read it if you like to each his own.

    I can’t lie, I do like the books, but I understand your point. I adored this article. It made me laugh basically from beginning to end. You had very valid points. I guess that makes me a bad Twilight fan. All well, I’m over it. They are possibly some of my favorite books, and I am aware that they are two-dimensional. It’s BECAUSE we can put ourselves in Bella’s shoes that attracts girls to them. I don’t wait around for anyone like Edward, or anything. I think people who want to do something like that are utterly wasting their time because, well, it’s a fictional character, and he does not exist. Also, just because Robert Pattinson plays Edward in the movie, this does not mean he is actually like Edward. You should have put that on your list. :) I’ve met so many Twilight-obsessed girls that are all, “I’m going to marry Robert and make him act like Edward and we will be in love and he will be romantic!!!!!!!” To which I am forced to reply, “Hmmm….

    Quite frankly I think you are a moron.

    Yes the internet is a place to voice your opinion… however, your ‘reasons not to read it’ are merely that… your own opinion… you have not provided any substantial reason for someone not to read this book saga.

    It always amuses me when people are bitter about someone else’s success. You say that it’s not as good as Harry Potter, in your opinion.. HOWEVER, regardless of how successful Harry Potter is NOW, are you aware that at least 7 publishing houses turned it down before it was published?…so plenty of people thought it wasn’t even worth publishing.

    You’re entitled to your opinion but don’t dress it up as a list of reasons why someone shouldn’t read it. Oh yes and if it was really as bad as you claim it to be then you wouldn’t
    have bothered to finish the book let alone the entire saga!…I have put many a book down after the first chapter because it was dreadful… perhaps you should have done the same and then we wouldn’t have been exposed to this lame and ridiculous list of INCORRECT ‘reasons’ not to read it.

    You do realize that by having so many complaints about the book(s) you have actually read them? I think that Kind of defeats your objective in complaining.

    But maybe that’s just my outlook on the subject.

    LMAO, Some are so true, but thats one of the things you have to love about twilight,
    Its meyers first and she’s good, she has room to improve and I look forward to reading more of her books.

    you have some good points, i have always prided myself on being able to read just about anything, and what i couldnt i put it up and read another and then went back to it, but i could not get past the first page of the book no matter what i tried, it was just…..idk. The main problem i have is the Ed. obsessed fan girls i have to be around

    I thoroughly enjoyed them! But I have never read Vampire Genre and have no interest in them, so for me comparing was irrelevant. The movie was not enjoyable however. But that’s nothing new when books are made into movies, the book is generally better.

    I agree that everyone is truly entitled to their own opinions, and that will never change-especially on the internet.
    However, I do find it quite funny and pathetic that you are targeting a book aimed for pre-teens that became more famous than expected,and congratulations for Stephanie Myer for nailing it right on the head!
    There are better writers out there and there is much more imaginative plots but at the end of the day no-one fources you to read the series!
    Yes, i do agree that Twilight seems to have spewed up all over the internet, but if it annoys you so much then stop talking about it-one less post about it to deal with then.

    To say that neither Edward nor Bella have any flaws is ridiculous…have you actually read the books? Edward clearly has a huge ego due to the fact that he can read minds and thinks he’s heard it all. Bella clearly has emotional issues because of her relationships with her parents (and let me tell you, there are PLENTY of parents like Charlie out there), which may be partly why she’s so dependent upon Edward. Not to mention that Edward really is a terribly selfish being to not stay away from her when he knows how dangerous it can be for her, and Bella is willing to throw away her soul to spend eternity with him. If that’s not flawed, I don’t know what is.

    Most of your reasons are not even valid critiques of the book…such as numbers 4, 5, 9, 21, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 89-95, just for starters. More than half your reasons have nothing to do with the book and everything to do with either Stephenie Meyer’s personality, quotes from people who don’t like the book, or attacking those who do like the book. In this list, I’d say there’s maybe 15 valid points (none of which you explained adequately). If you’re going to bother making a list like this, at least back it up instead of just saying “Harry Potter’s better.” Okay…explain to me why Harry Potter is better?

    Is Twilight the next War and Peace? Is Twilight the next Pride and Prejudice? Of course not. It was written merely to entertain pre-teens and any other romantics at heart. I enjoyed reading the books, because it was strictly entertainment. I am completely insulted by your statement in number 61: “ALL Twilight fans are insane…”

    Because clearly, I’m not.

    Also, you may want to start a list: 95 Reasons why Sarah’s List Makes Her a Hypocrite (grammatical errors, it’s flawed, it’s not well written, etc.). If you’re going to pick on someone, then make sure you don’t have those same flaws.

    Although there are quite a few legitimate reasons why some people hate Twilight, I have to admit that I love it. I will acknowledge the fact that it is not written so well, but it doesn’t matter to me. I enjoy it. It makes me happy. I am entirely aware that this book will never win a Pulitzer and the movie will never win an Oscar, but it is not meant to. This book was not written to do so. It was written to give girls (and yes I know a few straight guys who love it, also) an interesting love story to read. Yes, some fan girls take things too far, and that makes the rest of us seem insane, too. But believe me when I tell you that there are indeed a few intelligent, college girls who thoroughly enjoy this saga.

    Posted April 6, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    I have to say, I kind of agree with Allison when she wrote that “there are indeed a few intelligent college girls who thoroughly enjoy this saga”. I’ll be honest, when I first read these books, I did fall under Edward’s spell. It isn’t hard to see why, especially for us college girls who have had our hearts broken: a guy who lives just to protect you is, let’s face it, kind of alluring. Now, almost a year later, I could not be more sick of hearing about this series. The movie was laughable (although Jasper’s baseball trick was sexy), and I want to gag every time I see something about the stars. Anyways, the series doesn’t do it for me anymore. And while I don’t want to sound like some concerned parent, because I honestly don’t really even like children, it does kind of irk me that Bella has become some sort of heroine for girls. Young girls have enough moronic “role models” as it is. Can we please not force feed them another one? I guess I think girls should maybe wait to read this until they are a little older and can fully recognize how ridiculous the love story is. I keep wondering what’s gonna happen when Bella and Edward get sick of one another? I mean, do they LITERALLY not change, emotions and all? If so, then I’m burning my copies, because that is just absurd. My advice? If you want a REAL vampire love story, check out “Let the Right One In”. That is love, boiled down to its most basic elements. None of this “he’s hot so let’s overlook the fact that he’s a murderer” junk. Ugh. My one positive thought on “Twilight”: it is definitely brain candy. When the world is getting me down, or I feel like maybe I’ve been thinking too much, I know I can turn to Bella and for a few hours, pretend to be a mindless, gibbering (I’m talking to you Kristin Stewart; that hospital scene was atrocious) idiot. Ah, sweet, sweet bliss.

  402. JG
    Posted April 6, 2009 at 2:21 pm

    Here’s where I agree with you:
    Yes, it’s cheesy and Edward is the embodiment of the guy many girls can only have in their dreams.
    Yes, people have gone completely insane over this book, but it’s happened before with a book you laud so profusely in this post–Harry Potter. It went so far with those books that the church actually tried to ban it, and some churches were successful. Don’t get me wrong, I like Harry Potter, but all that trouble over fictional words?
    Here’s what I think you should know:
    The battle between vampires and werewolves is not original, you’re right. But it’s not like she saw it on myspace and took it. Watch Van Helsing. Who are the only ones who can kill a vampire in that movie? Werewolves. I think there may be some basis in legend there, much like in Harry Potter with many of the creatures.
    Yes, most certainly, you are entitled to your opinion just as much as a Twilight fan (which I am not. I’ve seen the movie, thought it was pretty good, but a bit cheesy, and Edward seemed quite stalker-ish until he finally got together with Bella. And guess who in my house wants to buy the movie and read the books? My fiancee. By the way, he’s a guy.), this doesn’t mean that stating your opinion includes making fun of those who defend their own opinions (which, you make clear, they are entitled to). State your opinion. Some of your points are funny, but don’t insult the people who don’t think like you. That’s just foolish.

    In conclusion, sure, it’s not a masterpiece, but it does what books are meant to do: it gives its readers a world in which they can place themselves and relate to the characters. Let them have that, just like people allow you to enjoy the books you read. You could have spend the time gathering this information (you actually asked random people on the street?) doing something productive with your life. Keep that in mind for the next time you decide your life just isn’t interesting enough and you think you need to anger others for entertainment.

    Good luck

    Although I agree with you and I don’t think the Twilight series is quality literature, if you want your criticisms taken seriously I don’t think it’s a good idea to include petty arguments like “it’s stupid” on your list. Some of your points are right on, though!

    although i don’t like twilight as much as the next guy, i found almost all 95 reasons extremely dumb. how many goddamned times do you need to repeat that the vampires sparkle, bella has no personality, or that you don’t like that edward is “hot” in the book? these “95 reasons” could easily be compacted into 20 actual good reasons. how can you count #95 for instance. one of your 95 reasons for disliking a book being that you wrote 95 reasons for disliking it is contradictory. You critiqued bad writing with more bad writing, splendid

    I have to agree with sarah and allison. I read this book for the first time in for a college course, and then had to create a teaching unit based on this book. While it may not be the “best” book in the world, it has it’s possibilities. I enjoy the books because I understand the difference between reality and fantasy. I am not insane because i enjoy light reading. I just have different priories in my reading material. Its good to relax once in awhile, and not have to worry about analyzing what I’m reading.

    You do realise that every single one of your points is what is commonly known as COMPLETE AND UTTER RUBBISH? Ok, you say that it isn’t a proper vampire book because it is clean, then that it is too adult for ten-year-olds (I read it when I was ten; have I been scarred for life? Except for where James bit me, no.). You also say that it is cliche, and then reprimand Meyer for ‘not obeying the rules’. And these are just two examples! I don’t mean to be rude (it’s just a compulsion), but do you have some kind of obsession with oxymorons?

    4 and 5 are the most crappest reasons ever! If you READ new moon, you’d know she jumped of the cliff because she was cliff diving, and Jacob wasn’t there. She did the adrelaline jump to hear Edwards voice, so to be honest read first ok? and Bella is NOT stephanie, she clearlt stated that she worte this series baed on a dream of a girl and vampire in a meadow, and wrote that scene first. To be honest, all of the above reasons were complete nonsence. I, am one of those twilight obsessive fans, and to be honest, whats wrong with liking something. Its like me finding out what YOU like and critizing it, wouldn’t like it would you? No so leave the twilight saga, stephanie meyer (an AMAZING first time novelist) the cast and everything about twiliht alone. Like my mum says, if you havent got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

Think about it.

    Wow, I’m pretty sure about ninety-two of those reasons aren’t real justifiable reasons at all. Twilight isn’t all that great of a book, but this article is a bunch of meaningless, unsubstantiated, tautological crap, if you ask me.

  416. Posted April 7, 2009 at 4:55 pm

    Holy crap… There are more worthless comments from today alone than there is article! That means this is really really really good! And it is. While it seems five or so of the reasons stated weren’t real reasons and were just thrown in for fun, this really did state, in essence, why Twilight is crap.

    You forgot to mention that they bite on the wrist. I have never heard of vampires biting someone on the wrist to suck their blood. Being poisonous is a maybe, but the wrist is a no-no. They go for the neck.

    Way to go on the ‘no plot development’ reasons. That hit the series dead on. I wish that people would get that worked up over a book, series, movie, or TV show with any real backround instead of brainless romance, stupidly thought out plots, and expensive special effects.

    Spoiler: This article is meant to be funny everyone! Laugh at it, cry at it, piss yourself and have a stroke because your so goddam obsessed with Twilight, just shuddap and stop complaining. No one wants to hear/read you complaining about how this hurt your feelings. Give some constructive criticism at the very least if you want to complain. Retards.

    I loved Twilight but could not get into the rest of the books. I agree with 13. I mean its so true but most of your other examples are repeats, quotes which dont prove to be evidence that Twilight is dumb, and or jokes. This was very piontless. Your word would be more stronger and you would win over more people to hate twilight if you acctually made a research paper with correct proof. Here are some examples i have a problem with.
    : 15. He leaves Bella out alon because she has proven to be responsible and thats how it ussually is when your a teenager with one parent to live with.

    34. This is an example of no proof! Hello its called their fans!

    35. She is trying to get rich or become a famous writer of course the plot is goin to drag on. She wants to spread out her ideas for more books.

    my last example i will critize even though there are more is..

    60. Carisle is saving them. If you were dying and your what 40, he would save you if he was real.

    48. Straight men sparkle?

    51. Edward Cullen is sparkly; crows like sparkly thing

    Ok we get it. You think it is weird that Edward Sparkles. WE GET IT! Also, the following is not a reason!

    88. You are allowed to have your own opinion, just like we are allowed to have ours. Get over it. Twilight fans don’t seem to understand that though and attack at the mention of flaw in the book.

    And isn’t number 14 the whole point of this list?

    “9. The world population will come to an end because all girls who read this book will think they are Bella and will wait for their Edward to come until they are old. And he’ll never come.”

    So you think the only purpose of females, your own gender, is to have kids? What if we don’t want to have kids?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    “This book contains no real sex, so it’s not really a vampire novel.”

    And yet you say Bella is the shallow one. Ha.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    “Why is it called the Twilight Series if only one book is titled Twilight?”

    That’s what series are called. The clique series, the series of unfortunate events, etc. Common sense.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    “Stephanie Meyer must really be into pedophilia: first Edward and Bella, now Jacob and Renesseme? SPOILER.”

    You don’t say SPOILER after u SPOIL it. That’s just stating the obvious. Either that, or you just don’t understand – we read left to right, top to bottom. And the countless times you’ve said SPOILER like that? (cont. below)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    “You don’t have to describe the character every two pages, we know all about Edward’s ‘perfectly toned chest’ the fourth time she mentions it.”

I’m not against those who like twilight, its just that you don’t just like it your addicted to it. All the girls at my school have Twilight shirts and sweatshirts and have the book at all times. If they had to let go of the book to live I think they would gladly die. I don’t think this of all Twilight lovers just the one at my school who cuddles the book like a teddy bear.

    Don’t love it, don’t hate it.

    To Twilight haters : Enough with the mean burns. They can like whatever they want. There’s no reason to be rude to the author, either. She never expected the book to be this big, anyway. Gosh, this book is to be read and enjoyed. You’re not supposed to get anything out of it, no life lessons or morals or life changing revelations. The point was to enjoy reading a book.

    And to Twilight fanatics: It’s only a book! It’s NOT REAL. Deal with it. No reason to have your life revolve around it. It’s not healthy to be obsessed with a fictional character. There’s also no need to be so defensive if a person critiques one minor detail of it. Meyer is a decent writer, but you can;t deny that the book has may flaws. Just read it, like it, and be done.

    And to all you poeple who waste your time arguing about a book: LEAVE EACH OTHER ALONE! Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but there is no need to be extreme when trying to tear down the other side. I pity anyone who would take the time to be involved with all of this BS.

Twilight fans like myself LOVE the series because of the great PLOTS AND STORY LINES! The books are brilliant, and if not, why have millions across the world read them ? I could start bashing something you PERSONALLY love ok? please respond so I can start. I will run with my awesome vampire abilities to Volterra, Italy and provoke the Volturi and blame you. Demitri will track you using your brain waves and your senses will be cut of by Alec and you will be tortured by Jane ok? haha. boo sucks to you suckers (:  btw, if you hate the twilight series so much, why waste i don’t know, blog space and DAYS writing a 95 point list. And YOU personally have obviously read the books MORE THAN ONCE to pick up the knowledge to make these accusations. So if you hated them so much the first time, why re-read?  Ok, thats all, I am obviuosly not looking for a arguement but I am argueing my point. (which is right mwahaha)Goodbye. Leah Clearwater.

    I’m a sixteen year old girl, and I thought it was alright.
    it certainly should not be held to very high literature standards, in comparison to real works of art such as dickinson or twain, and I don’t think most people understand that.

    for a TEEN hokey pokey novel, it’s alright.
    for a book in general, in comparison to all books, it’s about a two on a scale of ten.

    it’s simple, everything is laid out for you.
    no need to think about metaphors or symbolism or parallelism.
    it’s just there.

    Wow, I just read comment number #455, and wow. Some people really need to be checked out to a doctor if they honestly believe they have magical vampire abilities, or have vampire friends.

    Anyways – I have not read Twilight, only been told about all the ‘amazing plot twists’, and honestly, they aren’t that great. I don’t know why Meyer (being a first time writer as someone pointed out) would go for a romance novel about NOTHING.

    I really wish people would just shut up about how great Twilight is. Jeez. I agree with miss Sarag btw. :D

    all of these reasons are the same ones i’ve been telling my edward obsessed classmates. if you think about this logically, the books make absolutley no sense and im tired of the twilight craze.

    ugh.

    another reason why i hate the books:

    in breaking dawn, jacob imprinted on renesmee. she is a half-VAMPIRE, half-HUMAN. to me, it makes no sense on how jacob could imprint on the Human side of her, when she has 2 sides. werewolves and vampires are common enemies, no sense and frankly, twilight can kick rocks.

    my new books- The Mortal Instruments trilogy-By Cassandra Clare. actual good writing and its not deficient like twilight.

    Haha. A lot of these are true, and 53 and 56 made me laugh. Yes, they are really badly written (Mary Sue red alert!) and they are complete trash, but…I liked them. A couple of things annoyed me, like the “no sex before marriage” thing when neither of the characters are religious, and the convenience of Bella’s amazing self control in Breaking Dawn etc. etc. but they’re good when you have nothing else to do and can’t be bothered to think about what you’re reading.

    Although I myself thoroughly enjoyed the Twilight saga, I find your list extremely amusing and will not proceed to make childish threats because you insulted something I like. As you said in your list, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It would be ridiculous to think by threatening or insulting someone in return that it’s going to make any difference to anyone’s opinion (well only their opinion of yourself, because afterwards, everyone’s going to think you’re just some Twilight-obsessed teenie without an actual life or properly functioning mind.)

    Twlight is a digusting book and a terrible movie. Even people who haven’t read the book wouldn’t understand what in the hell is happening in the movie. The author has to get some writing skills because she clearly, sucks. Bella, weak and scrawny. Edward, gay and just plain stupid. “Night in shining armor” type of crap. Twlight sucks and so do the fans.

    Okay, so I’m not some die hard Twilight fan. But, I do love the books. I think that Meyer did a great job. Besides, no matter what you say, Meyer is still getting rich and still has fans. Half of your “points” dont even makes sense. Half of them contradict eachother. And I spell very well and use correct grammar. And whats with the sex thing? You must be one of those mindless morons that thinks that sex makes everything better. That’s why movies always have so many sex scenes, because of idiots like you. This is why there are so many pregnant girls, people think that sex is just a parkt of life. The book didn’t have sex in it, DEAL WITH IT. And Edward and Bella do eventually have sex, Meyer just doesnt elaborate on it.

    I LOVED Twilight. But reading through this was semi entertaining. You did however, use the same points multiple times and some were quite ludicrous.
    These things basically appear on the internet for any series that becomes a movie. I believe there was a few about Harry Potter somewhere. I’m sure these lists will dwindle shortly, just like the HP ones did. Also, trying to say that the world is going to end for those waiting for their Edward, the same thing happens for girls with their prince charming. Yet, they will grow up and move on.
    For those people that love Twilight and are upset about this, move on. As goes for those who hate Twilight. Like someone said before, it’s the internet. If you don’t like the oppinions expressed, close it.

    I actually enjoyed reading the book, but after a few times I agree with a lot of the items there. And I HATE how now it’s this huge media frenzy and girls are all obsessed over Edward Cullen. GET OVER IT LADIES, the man you fall for with not be a vampire and he will NOT be “perfect”. Everyone has flaws, and I feel bad for the man the obsessed twilight fans fall for because they’re gonna have a huge standard to meet. Oh, and Bella is an annoying, selfish brat who doesn’t even enjoy the fact that she has a sexy vampire and a pretty damn cool life. But I like the way it was written and I do love the story line, but I wish it was a little better :)

As a writer, I’m kind of insulted that something so badly written was published, let alone fawned over.

    I am a reader of Twilight and while I do enjoy the books of the series. I TOTALLY give you kudos on the ability to nitpick TWILIGHT’s every flaw. That was dire sarcasm by the way.
    Every book has it’s flaws.
    Even though Twilight produces a newly-dressed but common plot, it does not mean it is not enjoyable for other people. Every author has their style and every person has their reading level. If you are a person of a higher level of reading and are into complex plots and literary works, then yes, I would not recommend Twilight as a read. But simplicity has it’s own beauty in my opinion. I’ll admit it is a nice, simple book that pleases me and I don’t mind taking a break from more advanced literary works to chill out and read it.

    Despite everything, I laughed a lot with this list as it pointed out things I didn’t notice before. I frowned at some and laughed at others. For that I do give you real kudos. Haha, keep up the good work but keep in mind that while you are entitled to your opinions, we are also entitled to ours.
    I like to think that Twilight fans should be able to laugh at ourselves a little bit because, all in all, Twilight is just catering to our every fangirl wish and I don’t see why we should be ashamed to indulge like that. Lighten up everyone, there’s a little humour in everything we do.

    Posted April 16, 2009 at 8:55 am

    I have read somewhere before that reading about the other vampire’s pasts would have been better than the romance- I just think that writing in first person isn’t the done thing anymore.
    If the series was written in 3rd person we wouldn’t have to put up with Bella saying how many holes she has and how beautiful Edward is, every other paragraph- we would read the action and have a slight insight into all of the character’s heads instead of just one main. The fact that we would only here Bella’s thoughts in first person, is sort of tried to be made up for with Edward reading minds, and the werewolf pack too.
    Other than that, it’s too dialoguey in between Bella’s whinging and aweing of Edward, to try to compensate for long periods of thought.

    I read it fort he sake of reading it- when you reread a BOOK, you’re supposed to find something else new in it. doesn’t happen with Twilight- oh actually, I stand corrected! You find another reason to add onto the list above!

    the themes are thrown in for dramatic purposes that are never fulfilled- there’s superficial use of suicide and drugs
    at least harry potter series uses these properly- like potions as substance abuse and calling someone mudblood as racism etc

    Well, you are living up to your name–’mad Twilight fan.’

    Just because someone hates/dislikes something does not make them freaks. I’m sorry you and your sister are so sensitive, but I have to remind you–anything you like, there is someone out there who hates it. It’s a fact of life.

    A book is not good simply because its characters are ‘hot.’ That, to be frank, is quite shallow and means you honestly do not know what a good book is, if that is how you judge a ‘good’ book from a ‘bad’ book.

    To be honest, I love the books. That may be though, because I recognize and appreciate them for the nonsense that they are and am old enough to know that a sparkly stalker is not fantasy material, even if Edward is totally a VILF. I don’t Bella was quite as one dimensional as you made out but point taken, and I wish characters like Jasper and Alice had been developed more, they did seem very interesting.

    I did love the classic chick lit style and cut and dry happy endings – isn’t that what it was written for? Definitely not Kundera or even Kinsella, but cute enough :)

    Clearly EVERYBODY has their own opinions. I am not a ” twilight ” fan , but i did enjoy the books. Just cause it was a good read ” to pass time ” !! tough some of things written on the list is true and very CORRECT. I still enjoyed the book , though i know IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN , MEYER has quite an imagination. CLEARLY if she was a ” BAD ” author as you say. The books would not have been published and she wouldn’t be “RICH” off such “HORRIBLE BOOKS” ..

    one i don’t know, what there is to be JEALOUS of, many people can become creative and create such books like the TWILIGHT SERIES.

    i find it very funny for those ” unforuntiate Girls ” who are madly INLOVE with such a false “FLAWLESS CHARACTER” who will never exist in this generation , or ANY generation to be EXACT! ..

    What’s Gossip Girl got to with Harry Potter or Twilight? Not every Anti-Twilighter here loves Harry Potter, I’m sure. Come to think of it, Harry Potter didn’t really have much to do with that list in the first place – but seriously!

    omigod, these made me laugh so hard. What’s sad is that I am a Twilight fan, and I’m mostly just laughing at my stupidity after reading these. You have several valid points though, my personal favorite being:

    “If the firs 200 pages of your book relies on the mystery of a character’s identity, don’t slap ‘First, Edward was a vampire’ on the back cover.”

    ROFL thank you for these. Twilight fans shouldn’t be so hardcore, laugh at the books and love em, I’ve learned to do both XDD

    Hahahaha! I doubt anyone will read mine since it’s at the very bottom.

    Yeah, I agree with the whole Bella depending too much on Edward but I guess you get that when you read literature from a Mormon. I actually liked Twilight when I first read it, even though I found some of the lines really cheesy.I always wanted to read the next page because of the conversations yet I couldn’t stand how she went on and on about describing every little detail of Edwards stone face to every little tree trunk covered in moss (We don’t actually care) The plot went no where though and I really started to hate Twilight when all the teenage girl fans arrived and had nothing else to talk about at lunch time.

    What really angers me is WHY THE HELL do they have to turn every damn book into a damn movie now a days. Why can’t people apply their imaginations? That’s what makes novels so precious or there’s actually no reason in reading them if you going to ruin it all and watch the movie instead.

    Nice list. Mostly spot on. And while I know that some of you will disagree, I personally found Twilight rather twisted. I mean, since when has blood that smells like it would taste nice been the basis of any relationship? And stalker much, in essence telling Bella sleeps pretty? The premise would have worked better if it was meant to be messed up. The almost religious fanaticisim that this book instils in its fans is demonstrated by one of my fried’s ex. She told him that she wanted to have two kids; a boy named Edward and a girl named Bella, named after a chronically depressed emo and her sparkly vampire boyfriend… I rest my case

    Posted April 25, 2009 at 11:24 am

    I have enjoyed reading the books and agree with a select few of the things tha thave been said (for instance, the ‘baby’ writting and bad use of adjectives). And I am also very happy that, once readng through the entire list, I came across “You are allowed to have your own opinion, just like we are allowed to have ours. Get over it. Twilight fans don’t seem to understand that though and attack at the mention of flaw in the book.”

    I agree. We are all allowed to have and state our opinions. My opinion is that it is a good book in the fact that it has attracted so many people and fans. It was a page turner, though you may say only because you wanted to hear more ‘lameness’.

    The major problem I have with the book is that it was written for intelligent people. Don’t get me wrong here. It was poorly written, but the plot was meant for people with developed brains. The fan girls who have come to love Edward should do just that. If they want to waste their life waiting for him… well that just tells me that they were mentally unprepared to read Twilight.

    Some other things I don’t like are the sequels. Twilight was a fairly good book until the Baseball scene. I didn’t care for the James/Victoria nonsense. New Moon was annoying becuase she was sulking throughout the entire book. Eclipse and Breaking Dawn were quite revolting. Yet I read them. And from what you have said, so did you. That is the power of the series. Though you may not have realised it, it drew you in, if only barely. You kept reading becuase some aprt of you wanted to know what would happen. Of course, you might have wanted to know just so you could write this. But it did it’s job.

    I enjoyed reading your list, though I would like to point out that there are quite a few times where you repeat yourself (if I were writing this, I would have done that to emulate the repetitivness of the series itself). There are also a few comments that have nothing to do with why you shouldn’t read Twilight. As a whole, I think you SHOULD read Twilight, not becuase it is compleling (which it isn’t at all times) or becuase it is written well (which it isn’t) or becuase everyone else is doing it. No, you should read it becuase it will allow you to view the style of many authors. You can take what you read and apply it to your own writing, and even your conversation and beliefs. You learn what you hate about certain books, and what you like.

    On that note, I leave one question that bothered me the entire time I read the book: What happens when Bella is having her period? If Edward can’t resist her blood, then they have a problem.

  528. Hmm...
    Posted April 26, 2009 at 12:57 pm

    FINALLY!! Someone who hates the book as much as I do…
    I wasn’t even able to finish the first book, I hated Bella way to much…she’s a disgrace to women everywhere!! I hate her and her guts..
    It amazes me how the girls at my school die over this series…ugh everywhere I turn I see another stupid cover/title which by the way never has anything to do with the book..
    You’re right, Stephanie Myer does right like an amateur and it sickens me…
    Furthermore you’re right…this also led to me hating the book… In the book.. did Stephanie Myer not say that Bella was plain, clumsy and ugly? Well… that’s what I remembered or maybe that’s just what I interpreted whatever she said as… but anyway if this is so… why were all the guys dying over her? Edward Jacob…the other dude from school? Really? Be realistic here..

    Posted April 26, 2009 at 2:13 pm

    I think its funny that you kept talking about how Meyers isn’t original, and kept repeating herself, when you did the same exact thing writing this list. If you are going to write a list, at least make valid points, other than that girls will stop liking boys because they aren’t Edward. I liked the books, and oddly enough I am not waiting for a sexy vampire to come sweep me off my feet. I also think its funny that you had to go to random people on the street just to make a longer list, to make it seem more impressive.

    I think the people criticizing you for having “stupid” reasons are stupid themselves. Most of the reasons you mentioned were purely meant to be looked act as satire, but several others can be seen as absolute truth. I’m sick of people getting butthurt because people are expressing their dislike for Twilight; even if it’s “just a book”, we still have the right to express our feelings on it, regardless if it’s not that serious or not. And fans, grow up. Not everyone was brainwashed into believing that Twilight is a wonderful series. (And by the way: TWILIGHT IS NOT A SAGA, IT IS A SERIES. GET IT RIGHT PEOPLE.)

    most of the reasons are totally nonsense. there’s no book that’s good for everyone. each one has their own likes and dislikes. it’s just a book, if you don’t like it then read another one. there’s no need to make a very long list of why you hate it and telling others that they shouldn’t read it. please…not everyone hates it as much as you do!

    if she used the word “fangs” in the story then it’s like saying “sleeping in coffins”. it was mentioned several times in ms. meyer’s interviews that her vampires are not like the legendary one’s. apparently it means that they are different from the vampires you think.

    Also, disputing #27 : Supposedly Meyer never uses the word ‘said’ in the entire first book, instead using breath.

    “I’m glad you like it,” Charlie _said_ gruffly, embarrassed again.” (bottom of page 8, if you’re interested)

    Just a blatant lie. Good job.

    I agree with you that this book is horrid and a bane to human kind, but if you are giving reason not to read the book you can’t use the same reason multiple times. Just like you argued that we know Edward is perfect after the 4th time being told you can’t use that argument 2 or 3 times, it is the same with the argument that he sparkles.

    All written is spot on. Stephenie Meyer is a terrible story teller. Sparkling vampires? C’mon. But I’m positive she knew this will be a teeny hit. Never mind the characters will dull personalities, and excruciating predictable bad plot as long as it will titillate every teenage girls fantasies. Obviously, she just wants to get rich.

  547. Sherry

    Agreed! I wrote exactly like Meyer when I was 12. As for the “love,” it took me a lot of years to realize that my marriage was not a Sweet Dreams romance and that sometimes my hubby can be a total dickface. Like any real man in any real relationship. This kind of crap just further warps our Disney-fed girls into unrealistic expectations. That’s my real fear here.

    Now, see, I agree with all your reasons, but I disagree with your conclusion. Your conclusion is that Twilight is bad. Nothing is objectively bad. Actually, you know what, by that logic, you’re right. Twilight is bad. It’s also good. It’s also horrible, great, average, and anything else a book could ever be, because book quality is a subjective variable that cannot be irrefutably determined. Twilight’s quality, and, for that matter, any quality, is a metaphorical superposition caused by multitudes of opinions. But it’s not objectively bad; it’s SUBjectively bad, and that’s why it can also be good without contradiction. So essentially, if these reasons denote a bad book to you, then don’t read Twilight, because it sucks. If you like the sound of these reasons, go ahead and read it, because it’s amazing.

    Why I Hate Twilight
    by Sarah Rebecca, Mar 19, 2009

    95 reasons why you shouldn’t read Twilight, one of the worst pieces of literature ever written.

    Bella is a perfect character (“Mary Sue”), which Meyer hides by calling her clumsy.
    “Perfect Character” There is no such thing.

    Being clumsy is not a flaw if Edward always catches her.
    Edward doesn’t always catch her, must we go back to the scene in the movie where he drops her at the end? yepp, I’m gunna be a smartass.

    She can’t do anything without Edward.
    She lasted almost a whole book without him…. I’m pretty sure she did anything a normal person would do… Eat, breath, sleep, bathe, think.

    And when he leaves she attempts to commit suicide.
    Plenty of people, have done that, and Plenty of “good” novels have wrote about that, even movies, try wristcutters. AMAZING (:

    Meyer is living out her own fantasies by writing about Bella, who is clearly herself.
    And what is the crime here? Writers do that all the time. People who agree with this are just to sad to imagine doing anything but living their normal lives… how boring.

    The books aren’t well written, just because every other word is a fancy adjective doesn’t make it good writing.
    Well, then what is a good written book persay. There isnt a rubric to decide the perfect style of writiing, that’s why every freakin book is different. &It’s called well written because she uses very good imagry.

    All the rules Meyer sets for being a vampire are broken by the end of the series.
    Like what? I didn’t even know at the beginning there was a whole chapter titled “Thel rules of being a vampire, which also may never be broken”
    Rules are broken all the time, so do even try that one. It happens constantly in those fariytales you were probably oh so fond of when you were a child, like Cinderella for example. She was not nobility and in the middle ages it was a great crime to even talk to someone outside you class.

    Not only that, she breaks rules set by more esteemed authors.
    Hahaha, this one is funny. Once again, there are no rules to writing books.
    Seriously, if there were, we’d all know how a book would end if they all had the same “rules”

    The world population will come to an end because all girls who read this book will think they are Bella and will wait for their Edward to come until they are old. And he’ll never come.
    Females or males who believe that they will find Edward Cullen or a Vampire, I’m sorry, but get over yourselves and just think clearly. You’d be quite dumb to believe that, and I highly doubt that’d happen though.

    Bella almost dies fifty thousand times, but Edward always saves her. This is
    boring.
    Actually it’s interesting, cause you never know if she’s actually gunna die one time.

    Edward is too perfect and has no flaws either. Even vampires should have flaws besides wanting to suck human blood because it’s natural to them.
    He has flaws with the way he sees himself. He thinks he is, a killer, and an awful being that has no soul, and just dies when he dies. His flaw would be his low self esteem.

    The reason the books became so popular is because Bella has no personality and any loser can put themselves in her shoes.
    Not true, it’s cause it is a love story that every girl dreams of. Most best selling books among females are novels written about love.

    If Bella is so ‘plain’, why do so many guys fall for her within the first two chapters?
    Quite possibly, because it is a small town, they’ve dated all the girls or their friends have, and have heard all the storys of the girls. Meaning that they want something new and unknown. I.e. Bella. Also, getting her, would mean that the guy to get her, would have status, that’s way they all try to get to her first.

    Bella teaches women to let the man handle everything, which pretty much is a huge step backward for women everywhere, who have fought for equality.
    Not truely, there are women out there that see, that the men should do everything, while the female worries about him. it’s not abnormal you know.

    Isn’t it convenient that her father always leaves her alone and doesn’t question her? Real parents aren’t that way.
    Hahaha, really. Real parents aren’t that way?! Bahahaha, wow, this person knows nothing of society. Do you not notice how many kids are into drugs, drinking, partying, sex and pregnant. It’s cause parents leave them alone, and don’t question them.

    Lack of character development.
    Uhh, actually many of the characters realize flaws within themselves or change throught the whole series…

    Bella is a useless, whining, doll that suddenly has become the idol for girls everywhere.
    Bella, an idol? No, I’d think not. Many girls veiw her as ugly.

    People say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter. Guess what? WRONG.
    Uhhh, I gotta agree with this one. Harry Potter is the shizz [:

    Edward is extremely possessive, border-line abusive, and boring as anything.
    It’s too cliché.
    Boring? no you never know if he's like gunna get so pissed, not be able to control the possessiveness and anger issues he's got and just lose it, and kill bella. It could happen in all those vampire books you say set "rules". &wouldn't these also be flaws?

    This book contains no real sex, so it’s not really a vampire novel.
    This book was geared towards young readers. You wanna read or see a good sex seen got get penthouse or something, but don't complain about a book that is advertised towards the young ones. Parents are constantly complaining how their children know to much about that kind of stuff at a young age.

    Read Anne Rice - those are vampires, not the girly men that Meyer has created.
    Yeaaa, don't know Rice, but that was her version of vampires. &just because the Rice version of vampires came out 1st doesn't mean that if there were vampires they'd be just like the way they are written about in Rice.

    You don’t have to describe the character every two pages, we know all about Edward’s ‘perfectly toned chest’ the fourth time she mentions it.
    You said you wanted some sex appeal to the book. That's as close as you can get when it's for, oh yea, YOUNG READERS!

    Bella reflects upon herself through the entire novel to tell important plot developments. Hey Meyer, ever heard of "Show, don’t tell"?
    It's a book first of all, so she'd be telling it either way. She just chose Bella to tell it.

    She never uses the word fangs in the entire book series, and it’s supposedly about vampire.
    Just like I said, if vampires are real, how do you know what they'd look like. I could be one at this very moment, and I don't have fangs. There aren't real rules so stop comparing the books. They are two different veiws.

    Her vampires sparkle. Enough said.
    How do you know.... don't even gotta finish.

    Supposedly Meyer never uses the word ‘said’ in the entire first book, instead using breath.
    And you hate this cause?? It's that better writting thing you were talking about.

    There is too much face touching.
    &You don't touch peoples face and real life. Would you rather her not build up the tension by describing the kiss slowly and piece by piece and instead say, Edward leaned forward grab her boob, and made out with Bella. there.

    It’s predictable, and childish.
    So predictable, did you know she was going to have a kid? When Meyer had said it's not possible by one of her rules that you are suposed to go by.

    We read the entire series just to laugh at the stupidity of it.
    Well, it was entertaining wasn't it?? &that is the point of a book. &I bet you bought them, which ment Meyer got your money... now let's see who's the dumb one, & you doing this thing, just made her popularity go up, because for the people who haven't read it, they'll want to read it to see if what you say is true. You are quite intellegent, ya know that? [;

    Meyer can’t think of original names. The only original name she used was Rennesme, which is combination of two names and doesn’t count.
    Go read any book about the 1800's, there is atleast one person named Elizabeth, and a male named Henry. Go complain about that.

    Vampires can’t get people pregnant. SPOILER!
    Uhhh, it made the book more interesting thought didn't it. Bet ya didn't see that comeing? Which made it UNpredictable.

    Vampire baseball was just a disgrace.
    A disgrace?!?! No if they ran the bases just like any other baseball team, that would be a disgrace, cause wouldn't that be like.... "Oh, Vampires don't play baseball like a normal human being. They have super strength, and run with amazing grace and quickness. That goes against the rules" sounds about what you'd say.

    People think Meyer is the best writer ever.
    This is false. People that think this have never read another book. But then again, it is their opinion, and they may see her as the best writer they ever read stuff from.

    The plot drags on forever, when it really could have been completed in two books.
    Uhh, Harry Potter? Lemony Snicket series of unforunate events? Star Wars?? Movies and T.v. shows are like that too. I can summarize stuff like that in two sentences.

    Wow, yet another ‘original’ plot of forbidden love.
    Yet you want her to follow the "rules" set by past vampire novels and go off the things they say, which would be UNoriginal. You're not making anysense.

    Why is it called the Twilight Series if only one book is titled Twilight?
    It's called the Twilight Saga. &It's because the series begins at twilight. It's the time that Edward loves most in a day. It's when vampires can be themselves. It's just like the Luxe Series, Only one book is called Luxe. Or even the Clique Series. Only one is called The Clique. Go write 95 things about those books.

    It’s too easy to mock. Go on Youtube, how many mocks on Twilight do you see?
    Anything is easy to mock if you have an imagination. People mock Harry Potter all the time. Harry Pothead.. come on now. &I am also mocking you right now. So what, is that a reason to hate you or your opinion? [which I don't I actually love because I can argue] (:

    They use a drug reference in a book written for ten-year-olds.
    Once again, and you want to put a graphic sex scene in it?! I’d let my child here about drugs before sex.

    Stephanie Meyer creates some interesting characters ie: Jasper and Alice. She then ignores them, and gives them no development.Every Other Facebook bumper sticker is about Twilight/Edward. EVERY OTHER ONE.
    This isn’t true either. Many people say that Alice is there favorite character, and I’d have to say Jasper is my favorite out of the whole book. Even if he isn’t in it much. I bet you love Neville in Harry Potter or even Draco, and it doesn’t revolve around them.

    Fangirls are so blinded by their love for Edward that they don’t realize the book is terrible.
    Your opinion. &So, I’m pretty sure you have a band that has a guy in it that you adore, yet they are awful. Especially if it is Anthony Green. [don't get me started on that one] lol

    Stephen King agrees that Stephanie Meyer can’t write ‘worth a darn’.
    It’s stupid.
    Stephen King’s mind is screwed up. he may think that because she’s getting all the attention instead of his freakish mind and sadistic books. He writes of crazy clowns, houses that live, cell phones and cats, I bet you want a ten year old to read that too.

    Bella.
    uhhhh, you can hate characters because you want to be them… it happens often, don’t worry.

    Bella is Edward’s beard.
    Yeaaaa?

    Meyer wrote four books about nothing, really.
    Well, it’s four more best selling books than you’ll ever write (:

    Straight men sparkle?
    Well, you see, I bet if a vampire were gay… it’d be breaking the rules of vampire writting.

    It’s teeming with grammatical errors.
    So are like ten other books I’ve read this year. It happens all the time. Go read a Jane Austin book… It’ll make your head spin with all the errors.

    Bella Swan means beautiful swan, which is horribly cheesy.
    Okay… there are plenty of oxymorons that are cheesy.

    Edward Cullen is sparkly; crows like sparkly things.
    &You hate the book because you wish even atleast a crow would pay attention to you?

    Do any guys actually like Twilight?
    Uhhh, actually I happen to know that all my guy friends that have read it enjoy it. and you know, even those gay boys like it to read about Edwards sparkly body.

    If the first 200 pages of your book rely on the mystery of a character’s identity, don’t slap “First, Edward was a vampire” on the back cover.
    It wasn’t a mystery though. If you didn’t freakin know, going off the “esteemed writers” previous “rules” on being a vampire, then your a moron. not even gunna apologize either.

    There’s far too little actual conflict in the story. But this probably stems from having a flawless main character.
    The whole actual conflict is that unoriginal forbiden love. We all know about those stories. &there are many conflicts in the story. Such as the volturi, the fact that she lies to her dad, the bestfriend begins to like her, her bestfriend and boyfriend cant stand each other, someone is freakin trying to kill her in one. but no, that’s totally not a conflict if some crazy chick ever trys to take my live from me.

    They fall in love way too quickly and it seems fake because no one falls in love instantly, especially teenagers.
    Oooooooo, well obviously someone should take a class in psychology. Once people are teens, we have the same thought process as an adult. Which means we have all the same feelings as and Adult, meaning we can be in love. The reason love doesn’t work so well when you are a teen though, is because we are going through so many changes of our own.

    They only love each other because she smells good and he’s hot. There’s no other given reason why.
    Goodness, they explain in the book how at first Edward didn’t even smell her, he realize she was the only person whose thoughts he couldn’t hear. &yes of course she is attracted to him because he’s gorgeous, that’s how everyone is on first impressions. We base it of physical appearence. But then later on, they go one and tell other reasons why they do love eachother. Just like anyone else.

    It’s just not healthy to teach young girls that True Love involves the guy watching you while you sleep.
    When you get older and live with someone you “Love” or you are married to, there are times when you loved one watches you while you sleep. I mean when I first read it I was thinking freak, and don’t really plan on having my boyfriend come in to my room at night to watch me sleep. Besides he never slept, it gave him something to do ;p

    Edward is HOT. We get it.
    Not everyone thinks that. &People in the paper and tabloids always talk about how hot a guy or girl is for that week. Go complain about that, while your at it.

    She had only been in Forks for a month when Edward had been watching her sleep for two months.
    Where did we get this bit of information? &If you really looked into it that hard, you have no life.

    There’s something disturbing about Carlisle turning only teenagers into vampires.
    He didn’t turn only teenagers into vampires. He’s got his wife who is what, 23? & he only turned Edward and Rosalie into vampires. Edward because he promised his mother he’d watch over him, and Rosalie as a mate for Edward. Rosalie found Emette and turned him. &Alice and Jasper found Carlisle together, while they were already vampires.

    All Twilight fans are insane, proved by several responses to criticism such as…
    “What is your name, address and phone number, just so that i can track you down ank kill You with my super awesom vampire powers THAT I AQUIRED FROM READING THE SERIES!!!!!!!!!!”
    That is acutally quite funny.

    And this…
    “do you WANT a cult of angry twilight luvers like mysef at your doorstep at night trying to behead you????? you shouldnt voice an absurd oppinion like this on the internet.”
    It’s your fault for posting stuff like this.

    And this…
    “you must have not read much good litterature in youre life, because if you cannot appreciate the quality of this art…..YOU ARE MENTALLY UNSOUND!!!!!!!”
    Post anything like you did about Twilight, but instead for Harry Potter, X-MEN, Star wars… you’ll get the same replys.

    Isn’t funny how Twilight fans can’t spell and use proper capitalization? By the way, 61, 62, and 63 are real quotes.
    They are just so enraged. they’re insane… what can you say.

    The reason Edward can’t read Bella’s mind is because she doesn’t have one.
    Not true, if you get to the end, you find it’s a gift of hers.

    T. Pain would totally win Bella’s heart and beat up Edward because he’s on a boat.
    Hahahaha, WOW this is true xp

    Edward hits on the school faculty to get out of classes.
    Well, ya gotta do, what ya gotta do. that’s all I can tell ya.

    We applaud Stephanie Meyer, as she’s got to be a rich woman by now, having found her forte in the insane cult of teenage girls who go rabid over her writings.
    Like I said, she’s smart, while you were the dumb one who funded her cult (:

    Vampires vs. werewolves (isn’t that a Facebook application and such a original idea?)
    A face book app that prolly came from the Underworld or even this series. &Once again you get on to her for not following the typical stereotype, and the turn around and scold her for do that exact thing.

    There’s nothing worse than a fan girl going insane over a fictional guy. It’s rather pathetic actually, so, um, yeah, get a life and keep reading those books, chickies.
    You read Harry Potter, and you prolly obbsessed over him at a time to when you were young. You’ve prolly had fantasy about that one guy from that one movie you really love. So let’s really try not to be hypacritical.

    This book was not worth the paper on which it was printed.
    Yet once again, you helped fund once upon a time, and are now. You’re not making people not want to read it, your forceing them the other way.

    Bella has no goals and no future, her life revolves around Edward.
    Her goal actually was to become a vampire. & there are plenty of people yet again who’s lives revolve around other people. it’s not some new witchcraft.

    WWJTFD: What Would a Judgmental Twilight Fan Do? Answer: attempt to attack with the ‘cool vampire powers’ they gained from reading the series. Awesome!
    Hahaha, that’s funny, but not a reason to hate twilight. Just a reason to mock other people.

    Even if you like the book, it doesn’t live up to its hype.
    No, the movie didn’t live up to it’s hype. the book does. Unless you don’t like books about vampires that hate wolves, and fall in love with a plain jane girl. Then of course it wouldn’t live up to its hype for you. DONT FREAKIN WASTE TIME AND MONEY READING IT.

    Edward is a good VILF, that’s it.
    Yeaaaa?

    “And I cried numerous times upon realising there would never be an Edward in this world.” – quoted from Almuvira Anona on Yahoo Answers.
    Okayy, that’s just rediculous.

    A hundred years difference = pedophile.
    Yet seventeen, so legally, he’s not one.

    It’s a co-dependent relationship stripped down to the bare essentials. Girl: “I can’t live without you. I want to change myself to be with you.” Boy: “If you leave me, I will kill myself.”
    Okayyy, that is how many teenagers veiw their love life. That’s one way that they connect with the book better than you. You’ve probably never had a love so you take it out on a book that gets more action then you.

    Stephanie Meyer must really be into pedophilia: first Edward and Bella, now Jacob and Renesseme? SPOILER.
    Jacob doesn’t like Renesseme like that yet. He just wants to be like a big brother to her. There is nothing wrong with that. It happens in everyday life. &Soon she’ll catch up to his age at the rate she grows.

    New hot couple name for Bella and Edward = Bedward
    &this pretains to you hating the book how?

    You may think Edward Cullen is smart and fast, but Chuck Norris could take him.
    Once again??

    Bella’s only deep thoughts are, ‘Edward is so perfect. I love him.’
    She has deeper thoughts then that. She thinks of the conflict of her bestfriend that she has love for and how it entertwines with her love for Edward in New Moon. just an example.

    The only reason I kept reading was to see if Bella could redeem herself by getting over him.
    that’s not true because you could’ve skimmed it or waited til the last book to came out and had one of your friends tell you after they’d read it. Admit it, you’re just as crazy over the book, you just don’t like how much hype and how popular it is now. You thought you were independent and “original” then everyone started freaking over it.

    Jacob, who didn’t abuse Bella and was nice to her, was dumped and she chose Edward. Hmm, masochistic much?
    They say that in the freakin book. Obviously. Girls do that all the time now. Teens always go for the bad boy that treats them wrong the first couple of times.

    Ms. Meyer writes the way I did when I was twelve years old, doodling in my journal.
    &you’re just mad you didn’t think to turn it into a book before she did, and get the fame and tons of cash, since you’re a nobody. DERN :/

    “It would have been much better if Jacob and Edward discovered they were gay: no sequels, no whiny Bella. Amen to that.”
    Wow, this one is original. I hear this one for pretty much all books/movies/tv shows. Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy anyone?

    Many people have enjoyed the making of this, many have helped with it too…in other words lots of people hate Twilight.
    Many people hate Pres Bush, hate Obama, hate religion, hate aithiest, hate gays, hate children, hate elderly people, hate wars, hate tree huggers, hate middle eastern people….. you don’t see anything being done. You really expect this one to mean anything to people.

    You are allowed to have your own opinion, just like we are allowed to have ours. Get over it. Twilight fans don’t seem to understand that though and attack at the mention of flaw in the book.
    I enjoy your opinion, I’m just proving you wrong(;

    Light Yagami doesn’t approve of Twilight so neither should you.
    Yea and if they ment anything, I’d know who they are.

    “Cause it’s dumb.” – Random Person on the Street
    If that’s all they could come up with, they couldn’t even read it if they attempted to.

    “It’s annoying as hell.” – Random Person on the Street #2
    Once again, a little better response, but still, not good enough. The hype is annoying though, I will give them that.

    Martin Luther would not have not have approved if the book was written during his lifetime.
    This has nothing to do with it. Martin Luther has to do with the Catholic religion which there probably was much he wouldn’t approve of[not bad mouthing] but he also taught the gospel. And in God’s word, you don’t have to go to church or anything, you just have to know him. &Bella actually believed in heaven if you didn’t catch that and so did Carlisle. So, tell me the wrong in the situation through God’s eyes.

    Harry Potter could beat Edward any day with his magic powers.
    True, very true. He could easily rip him to shreds with his wand and then of course use that wand to start a fire.

    It’s offensive to the entire human race, both male and female.
    Offensive how? When you say that you are also talking of Romeo and Juliet wich of course an “esteemed writer” wrote. &In that story the two kids kill themselves….and we study that in school, yepp that one has a much better moral then two people living happily together forever…

    The book was so bad we wrote 95 reasons why we hate it.
    &Not all of them were actual reasons. Many were just made up randomness….. Bedward for one.

    So, If you read this entire thing. Good for you. I will be posting this in a blog, comment me there if you will. But seriously come on! Those weren’t even all good reasons. I’m not saying everyone sould love TWILIGHT, no. Because I know not everyone does, and I understand that. But atleast have a good reason, don’t contradict yourself and actually have read it. Don’t go around saying you hate it to be different. And don’t go around saying you love it for attention and to have something to talk about. I’ve read it. loved it, but not obssessed. Still gotta have my Harry Potter ;p

    Reads like a formula Mills & Boon with two-dimensional characters. Loner pretty girl meets loner strong handsome guy.

    I totally agree with you. I read a lot of books, I’m basically a biblioholic (a biblioholic is someone that has an obsession with books) and I have read quite literally 100 books that are soooo much better than the Twilight series. I wish that people would get over it. One of my friends saw these two girls at that thingy in geelong were you could meet the people that play Laurant (I think that’s how you spell it) and Emmet and get their autograph it cost $30 dollars!!! Anyway the two girls started hyperventilating and had to be taken out of the line and when they had calmed down they got back in the line and when the got to them they jumped over the barrier and ran at them screaming. OMG get a life!!!!

    Posted May 12, 2009 at 4:00 pm

    You know what I have to say? Quit criticizing twilight! If you don’t like it oh well.

    Answers:

    1.) Bella isn’t perfect… she’s clumsy and most girls are. Bella lives in her own world and most girls dont.

    2.)Edward dosnt always catch her. What about Jacob? Forget him too? Yeah well, friends do always catch you when you fall.

    3.) She does to do stuff without Edward. So you are forgetting Jacob! Well, let me tell you that you are wrong!

    4.) She dosnt try to commit it! Get a life! She is cliff-diving FYI! Try it sometime!

    5.)Bella is not Steph! Steph is not Bella.

    6.)The books are well written! Thats why it was made into a movie and plus there making the whole series. So there! Plus Twilight has a million fans!

    7.)What Vampire rules? Trying to scare little kids now right? Well I never liked Dracula anyways.. he was lame!

    8.) Same as 7

    9.) Sorry. And so what if they like Alice or Rosalie? Then Jasper and Emmet are for them. Seriously, the book would influence those boys if they read it.

    10.) GIVE JACOB CREDIT TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So JJ Twilight lover (ME) will be back! Dont worry

    11.) Something inhuman wouldnt have flaws. Mythical creature? DUH!

    12.) You call me a loser! No, I know you didnt call ME a loser! I have plenty of friends and 2 BFF’s! I am no loser! You shouldnt call people losers because they like something. Everybody that agrees with this loser are losers too. 3x the loserness!

    13.) This is in Bella’s point of view. she dosnt think she’s special. She’s got low self-esteem. look it up

    14.) When Bellas a vampire she takes a huge step up. edward would’ve killed Renesme FYI. Bella took control though!

    15.)Guess what?! They dont know each other well. It’d be awkward!

    16.) Guess what? You lack of that!You probably cant read!

    17.) She is a regular whining useless girl then. All girls are like that… but never useless. she cooks for charlie. call that useless?

    #31 Bella, Swan. There is a deeper meaning behind that( Bella means beautiful and Swans are suposed to usually travel in pairs…. get it?) and the other names are the ones that were around when that character was born so they make sense. e.g. Edward was an extremely popular name for the time he was supposedly born so it kida, really makes sense.

    To #598 no were not ‘trying to be cool’ bye hating Twilight, we are just trying to express our opinions about the book-if you are allowed to have your opinion, then we are allowed ours. You don’t see us hijacking the ‘we love Twilight’ or ‘how much do you love Twilight’ lists and forums.
    We want a place to express OUR OPINIONs with out people contridicting us, we are allowed our own opinion.

    In my mind, Twilight is a poorly written book, filled with gramatical mistakes and over use of descriptions. It’s just anout a sappy girl who thinks her life revolves around Edward bloody Cullen and expects to be rescued by her ‘prince charming’ everytime she gets into trouble.

    I can’t really say anything too mean because I haven’t read Twilight, but I don’t plan to. Mainly because that is all anyone ever talks about, what is so great about a few vampires and some other random creatures mixed in?

    I kind of agree and disagree to some points of your list, but I loved # 53 (If the first 200 pages of your book rely on the mystery of a character’s identity, don’t slap “First, Edward was a vampire” on the back cover) and The book was so bad we wrote 95 reasons why we hate it.

    Honestly, I enjoyed the books. Where I live, it wasn’t even popular until this year. That’s one thing that bothered me. :x
    I read it before most people here.
    Then the crazed ‘Twilighters’ showed up. How disgusting.
    The books were NOT that amazing people. They were… okay, at best. I met Stephanie Meyer, and she’s not that great either. Yeah, she’s pretty nice. But she’s almost as bland as the books were.

    Thank you for this incredible list! Made my morning a little bit brighter….and now I have a list of my own to share with you, in a way –this is a column I wrote for my local paper. The best bits are the responses I got, and I’m sure you can identify. People are fantastically idiotic.

    Personally i loved the series. I’m not like those other fans who say you cant express your opinion. But now its time to express mine. There are a few things wrong with this list.
    1. You repeat the same things over and over again.
    2. If you say Bella is perfect why is shy masoquist or doesn’t have a mind.
    3. Edward is 108 years old and Bella has the mind of an adult so they tecnically aren’t teenagers.
    4. Atractive guys flirt with teachers.
    5. At least Bella is capable of love you guys only seem to hate.
    6. A lot of parents ignore their kids.
    7. Isn’t writting supposed to be you fantasies.
    8. She doesn’t breaks the rules of vampires because there are no rules when it comes to writting, its her imagination so keep Meyer out of it.
    9. Not all twilight fans are crazy obsesive, only the ones who don’t have a life.
    10. I know plenty of guys who read twilight, straight guys.

    You guys will probably ignore this because you also only care about your opinions, but think that there are a lot more people who love twilight that people who hate it so watch out. And don’t even think about twisting this comment around to fit your needs because then you will only be scared cowards.

No one will respect your opinion if you don’t even care to express it in a way that can be understood.

    Actually, I’m really bored. So I am going to respond to your comment in what I hope will be a slightly constructive manner.

    1. Admittedly, this is a legitimate criticism of the list; it has nothing to do with the content of the list, however, and is irrelevant.
    2. In calling Bella “perfect” I believe the author of the list meant (and forgive me if I’m putting words in mouths) that Bella is a Mary Sue character: the type of character written in such a way that anyone can project their own feelings and emotions onto her without any actual characterization getting in the way. Bella is perfect only in that she is perfectly empty.
    3. Having the mind of an adult doesn’t make one not a teenager. The author was pointing out the hideous age discrepancy between the characters, not commenting on their maturity.
    4. What does that have to do with anything?
    5. Bella is not capable of love; Bella is capable of slavish devotion to an Adonis-esque figure whose only real attraction seems to be his wonderful gorgeous body and ability to brood.
    6. The point was that the relationship between Bella and Charlie is implied to be much stronger; I know very few teenagers given half the freedom Bella had. Yes, a lot of parents ignore their children, but that’s not how the relationship is written -only how it works. And it’s a poor bit of characterization.
    7. Yes, and no. When an individual’s fantasies get this much attention (an individual with poorly written and shallow fantasies), something is wrong. There’s no problem with writing a story based on your own dreams, but to try to get it published (and in this case, succeed, sadly enough) is ridiculously self-serving and rather disgusting.
    8. There are things called “genres” and “canon” in literature, conventions and rules that *most* authors follow when writing. Innovation is all well and good, when it isn’t terrible. Meyer is a terrible writer, and she essentially took vampire lore and removed anything good and worthwhile from it. And yes, there are rules for writing. And you should know them before you go about writing something, otherwise you look like an idiot.
    9. That I’ll give you.
    10. So what? Who cares? Congratulations for you, I suppose. This is another relatively irrelevant point.

    Sarah Rebecca…your list is lame and redundant. Why are you so jealous? Why are you such a hater? I guess this was the only thing you could get people to read. Actually, it’s just a list of 95 or so things that you complain about, most of which is just reworded in different ways (much like your complaints about Twilight), and even then I stopped reading somewhere around 11 on your list of complaints. Why are you such a hater? Seriously, maybe you should talk to a professional about your anger issues.

    No, twilight is not better than harry potter. Chuck Norris can actually destroy cullen’s face if he wanted to.

    No, you can’t stop people from having their own opinions. You can’t tell someone to stop hating something just because you like it.

    You are allowed to have your own opinion, just like we are allowed to have ours. Get over it. Twilight fans don’t seem to understand that though and attack at the mention of flaw in the book.

    You cant say that after #18
    People say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter. Guess what? WRONG.

    Posted May 22, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    You are right. So right.

    I didn’t read the entire series, I read the first one and wondered why and how this woman (Meyer)had got her book published. I believe everybody has a right to write, because it’s something so wonderful to do ^^.

    Personally, I don’t like books written in first person. And really, reading all the book through Bella’s thoughts was hell. She is plain, and selfish, and acts like a completely brat, even if she is not even pretty (let’s remember, she thinks she is ordinary but ALL the men want to be with her).
    And annoying, so annoying. She has no goal in her life, other than not getting old.
    When Edward confessed he couldn’t read his mind all I could think was “lucky bastard”.
    I believe that it was told by Bella’s POV just to point out that she indeed has thoughts.

    One of my most favourite parts of the first book was the night Bella came to the conclusion “Edward must be a vampire”. Then, the following day is sunny and none of the Cullen family assist school and Bella, our very clever main character, seems so confused by their absence. I suppose some girls got it (sunny day = no vampire) and they thought they were oh so smart for getting it. Yes, I got it. No, I didn’t feel clever, I was to busy laughing at this.
    And girls, Edward is a stalker. If you need a creepy boy to be always watching you to feel you worth something you have issues.

    As I said before, I didn’t read the whole series but a friend did.

    SPOILER..
    The magicaaaaal baby. Oh, Lord. The magical baby, “I am the magical baby, touch me and feel my life.” I usually don’t need to touch people to let them know I am alive.
    END OF SPOILER

    Hannah, they shouldn’t burn them, they should recycle them ^^.

    I apology for any grammatical mistake or wrong use of word. English is not my first language, but I just wanted to tell you, Rebecca, you are very right.

    “9. The world population will come to an end because all girls who read this book will think they are Bella and will wait for their Edward to come until they are old. And he’ll never come.”

    That’s not fair. Don’t stick stereotypes on us fantasy-loving-to-the-point-where-it’s-almost-a-cult teenage girls. The first time I read twilight, I thought it was boring, poorly written and creep… it reminded me of a fan fiction… like Stephanie Meyer made one of her sexual fantasies into a book.

    I’m a huge fan of vampire novels. It’s safe to say I’m obsessed. So my friends found it SHOCKING when I HATED this book. But to anyone in their right mind, it’s not hard to see why.

    Twilight is an insult to vampires. AND THAT’S AN UNDERSTATEMENT.

    One of my friends stopped talking to me because I hate the book. She calls me an “Edward Hater”.

    And why did Bella have to be in the battle in Eclipse. Sit back and relax. Everyones heard enough about you.
    Why did Bella go and have a kid in the end. Renessme ruined the whole series and all of Breaking Dawn was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHEESY!

    I enjoy reading it, but twilight is CRAP. It’s a lot of crap about a talentless hack called Bella and a pedophilic vampire who fall in love with each other instantly for the only two reason that Bella smells good and Edward is hot. Bella’s life revolves completely around Edward. Truth: 95/95

    ok so you say “Wow, yet another ‘original’ plot of forbidden love”, but when meyer tries to be original and create her own ideas for vampire traits (like super speed, and the fact that they dont burn when the come out into the sun) you tottaly atack her and say “she breaks rules set by more esteemed authors”

    oh and for yor info, jacod forcedly kisses he in one of the books, she doesnt commit suicied she jumps off a cliff because of the adrenaline (and the fact that million of other people had already jumped of that cliff and came out perfectly fine, didnt help your cause)and just to prove to you that you dot read really well, edward explains why doesnt have fangs in the first book

    I’m 15, and I read all four books. Or, kinda read them. I had to skip over many paragraphs of the gushy adjective nonsense (Edward is so perfect and amazing and beautiful and has the most gorgeously defined jawline ever, etc). By the way, that book is horribly written. Meyer abused the thesaurus and doesn’t know how to pace plots.

    Edward! He is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo damn controlling, it’s abusive! And Bella is just stupid! She has no goals in life. She’s blinded by Edward’s hotness. And the book is the most sexist thing I’ve ever read that was published in the last decade. Females who obsess over the book are being disgraceful to their gender!

    Anyways…love the list, although I personally don’t agree that Twilight was for 10 year olds, haha. In fact, I don’t think anyone under 13-14 should read it…partially because of the sex and graphic ‘labor’ scene in the fourth book, but mostly because it gives girls an UNREALISTIC expectations of men, indirectly promotes sexism, and makes them confuse the difference between lust and love. Hell, I don’t think ANYONE should read Twilight!

    Oh, and the only thing that pisses me off more than a Twilight fan is a Twilight fan who hates Harry Potter. Why, because Harry Potter actually has developed characters, has several strong females (even though the main character was a male), and isn’t gushing to the brim with stupid, brainless conversations about how they ‘love’ each other?

    If you have that much time to make that many criticisms about a book meant for young teens to read and fantasize about than you have no life. Get over the fact that a bunch of young kids enjoy a book about vampires and werewolves. I don’t know if you know this or not but there is a whole genre dedicated to fiction and fiction is full of made-up, unreal stories.. Stick to criticizing your own work or become a professor and criticize your students work so you can put all your “knowledge” to work. Just know you sound pathetic that you can sit and make up that many dislikes about a book made for mostly young teenagers. Think about it. And when you think about how pathetic you are you can GET A LIFE.

    I’m sorry, I know nobody gives a crap about my opinion, but I just have to say it!

    I didn’t even read this whole list, because most of them are childish, stupid, confusing, narrow-eyed (don’t know if that’s a word in English) and most of all, not true. Sure, some of them might work for you people who just gotta hate it, but it’s so many things I can’t see how it’s a bad thing! For instance, why is the fact that you think Bella is perfect a bad thing?
    And for your narrow-eyedness (I really don’t think THAT is a word..), she doesn’t mention fangs, because they don’t have any. Are you so stupid that you really don’t realize that it’s fiction, and that you can write almost anything you want when you writing fiction? Of course she doesn’t have to stick to all the other vampire-legends! It’s a huge part of it all!!
    And you use the same accusations sooo many times. It’s not 95 reasons, it’s maybe 10. And, if you have an IQ above 80 and have read the books, the list probably gets much, much shorter than those 10 reasons.

    I disagree with your comment to some extent -yes, the author of this list is vitriolic and repetitive, but in her defense, so are most of the comments she receives. Trying to have a conversation with a “Twilight” Fan is usually like trying to converse with a rabid wolverine; none of them will accept any legitimate criticism of the stories (and there is plenty), so we descend into the same level of immaturity we deal with.

What upsets me even more is the huge succes it’s became winning mutiple awards in the MTV Movie awards. Plus I think Kristen Stewart might be on some type of narcodic. Haha!

    I read Twilight, liked it. Then these screaming fangirls all of the sudden come whirling in from nowhere, and…it kind of insulted me, the way they obsessed over Edward and Jacob. And it was kind of like, “Erm, excuse me, miss, but do you even know how to read?” I hate telling people I like Twilight now because they all assume I’m “just another fangirl.”
    And.
    This list could be better.
    I’m serious.
    I like Twilight, but there are certainly some flaws with the books…as there are with this list.
    Bella has, since Edward left in New Moon, been my least favorite character, so the Bella bashes, I kind of enjoyed…=]
    But she was my least favorite character because one of her biggest flaws: being so dependent on Edward. She certainly has more flaws than just being clumsy.

    hey what a list! but hey you mustve read the book from cover to cover to be able to come up with almost a hundred reasons to hate Twilight series.

    im not THAT crazy about the saga but i just liked the story since i kind of like the supernatural as well. i thought it was too kiddie too before but when i read it, i think it was ok. meyer tried to intertwine fanstasy, supernatural, etc with reality and may be thats why some people actually thinks it can or may be possible to exist even though its not lol. its healthy sometimes to snap out of reality but be sure to go back lmao! let the kids ‘drool’ over the saga for now, they’re still young. its a fiction too so there’s no need to debate what supposed to have happened or what and who should the character be. peace!

    Those Fan girls are utterly INSANE! But, the truth is, anyone of the non-loving Twilight people could kick any Fan chick’s ass.., I mean, come on; after they threaten your life with their aquired Vampire powers, the second you attempt to grate their face with the floor they’re going to run screaming or hope with their pathetic little hearts that their ‘Edward’ will save them. And then they will die. xD

    did i miss something, isn’t this supposed to be funny? i mean there is a little bit of dramatic irony here with the author commenting on how intense and humorless twilight fans are and then the fans respond by being totally intense and completely humorless. i have never read the books but i did watch the movie when i was really sick. i thought it was visually appealing to watch but that nothing happened. no story arc or real character development or anything. but perfect to watch when you have the flu!
    anyway even having not read the books but being familiar with them, this list was pretty funny! not every item on the list was great but quite of few of them really cracked me up. like these:

    Why is it called the Twilight Series if only one book is titled Twilight?

    A hundred years difference = pedophile. ha ha!

    If the first 200 pages of your book rely on the mystery of a character’s identity, don’t slap “First, Edward was a vampire” on the back cover.

    and finally: It’s just not healthy to teach young girls that True Love involves the guy watching you while you sleep. priceless.

    and i am pretty sure that was the point. to be funny. not to “shove a personal opinion down everyone’s throats.” um, intense much? it’s a joke, chillax.

    Disgusting how Bella loves 2 guys and enjoys kissing them both. Probably just reflecting the author’s own life. And how dare the critics say ‘move over, harry potter’? twilight is not even fit to be compared to a book as great as harry potter. The whole book just makes me want to puke.

    My main point is, number 62 made me lol so hard…

    The internet has people expressing their opinion?! Go figure!!
    Seriously, that\’s all the internet is. Has anyone seen site\’s like 4chan? I mean, really.

    There goes my faith in humanity… although, most of the Internet\’s population has already killed that.

    Anyway, look! I managed to use coherent sentences, and proper spelling! Punctuation, even! See, it\’s not that hard, now is it?

    Although, to those writing this list, many of your points were repeated, and not all of them were actual reasons against the book. Just for the record.

    Now that I\’ve made my few points, I want to recommend an EXCELLENT series of books, so amazing and well written, with and intricate plot and amazing character development. It\’s not for you stupid teenage girls, either, with your sparkly vampires. Its got assassins, magic, death, lots and lots of blood, various other mature things… for those looking for a GOOD book, with REAL action, this is the book for you. It\’s a trilogy, and the first is called Way of the Shadows.

    Please read it.

    And be wary… Most people online may be sarcastic, or joking. Don’t take all jokes, or even statements, seriously.

    YOUR ALL WRONG, ALL OF YOU. SHUT UP AND STOP BEING STUPID. I GET IT. YOU HAVE YOUR OPINIONS. YES MOST OF THIS LIST WAS STUPID. YES MOST OF TWILIGHT WAS STUPID. THAT’S THE TRUTH, THE END, GET OVER IT

    This is as fun as reading the comments on YouTube videos. Never have people hated each other more than they have on the internet. Or, at least, never have they made themselves more ridiculous doing it.

    As for my opinion: I don’t really have one other than it’s not the best series I’ve read, but neither is it the worst.

    I would like to comment on parts of your list. Some things I agree with and others I do not.

    #8 Do you mean rules written by other authors for vampires? An author is entitled to create his or her own universe where different rules apply than those in other books. If every book had to follow standard rules, we never would have had the privilege of reading many of what are now considered classics.

    #21 Sex does not have to be standard for a vampire novel. Sexuality seems to be fairly standard, but not necessarily the actual, physical act.

    #27 I’ve never heard that Meyer never used the word ‘said’ in the first novel, but I can tell you for certain that it is not true.

    #31 Original names? Does everyone in real life have an original name? It was realistic. And I appreciate that it a novel.

    #32 You do have a point there. That really did drive me nuts.

    #34 People also think of Stephen King as the best writer ever, but I disagree. In fact, skipping to #43 here, I don’t like his work and therefore his criticism of another author does not affect my opinion at all.

    #35 Yes, it was long. It was very long. They could have done without the entire second book and the whole, “Oh, I must be with Edward, but I love you, too, Jacob,” part.

    #37 Why is the “Redwall Series” called the “Redwall Series if only its first book is called “Redwall”? Why are the “Bloody Jack Adventures” and “The Princess Diaries” called such if only their first books bear the same name? This is done sometimes.

    #44 “It’s stupid.” Well, we could sling around things like, “You’re stupid,” and “It’s stupid,” all day, but that will get us nowhere.

    #49 If the people who enjoy the books don’t notice, it should hardly matter. I’ve read much worse.

    #52 So… It’s not a good novel if a guy doesn’t like it?

    #55 This is where Meyer really gets it wrong. They do not fall in love with each other, they fall in lust. I do not believe in love at first sight, but I do believe in lust at first sight. Love takes longer.

    #57 I agree wholeheartedly. It’s creepy. It’s not romantic, it’s just creepy.

    #61, 62, 63, and 64 Three examples do not prove the norm.

    #76 That quote made me laugh.

    Well, this ended up being much, much longer than I intended. But… I really needed to tell someone what I thought. Feel free to ignore or dismiss my words as drabble, but… they’re good points in my mind, and I’m sure there’s bound to be someone out there who agrees with me on some point.

  679. okay.
    Posted June 7, 2009 at 3:21 pm

    The only reason why this book/series is “enjoyible” to teenage girls in perticular is because the book is easy to read and they would rather read something easy (such as the Twilght series) than to read something they would actually have to think about(and figure out for themselves).

You can say what you don’t like about the book series, and you can rant about the ridiculously misled fandom, but Stephenie, as “poorly written” as Twilight is, put a lot of work into the books. It’s not her fault that this is the only kind of “literature” that my generation seems to want to read. She wrote them, a bunch of stupid girls fell for her characters.

    Holy crap! I hate Twilight! One of my friends will not stop talking about it, and it makes me not even want to talk to her. When I read the 1st book, I thought the series was alright, but i was dead wrong. It is the worst written, most boring, most predictable pice of crap I have unfortunately wasted time in my life reading. If Stephanie Meyer wants to be a good author, maybe she should take tips from people like J.K. Rowling. At least Harry Potter has fans other than stupid teenaged girls who need to get a life (and I even am a tennaged girl). This series was pretty much the biggest waste of time, effort, and money I have made in my life!

    Yeah, we get it, Twilight may not be the best piece of Literature ever written, but it certainly does not deserve all this hate. Well over half of your reasons make zero sense, and more people like the series, than dislike it. I’m not saying that the strange people who believe it, and live for the book are right, I’m just saying that you shouldn’t hate on it just because you didn’t enjoy it.

    I’m really disappointed. I googled “Twilight hate” to see what people who hate the series have to say about it. I found this site, and I was hoping/expecting that it would be legitimate, accurate, well thought out and well expressed reasons.

    Fail.

    Can’t you do any better? Please?

    I love the series, though I do have my own issues with it. Bella is pathetic in that she “cannot live without Edward.” I understand that when you love someone so much losing them can and probably will tear you apart, but you survive and life goes on. Not so for Bella, probably because she wrapped her life up in him. Edward is rash and selfish for trying to kill himself over Bella’s death, not caring about what that would do to his family. I’ll agree with you on those points, which you sort of hit. Oh, and I’ll also agree on #84 about Jacob. I prefer him over Edward because he’s so much more real, in my opinion. I can’t agree with you about much else. None of the characters are “perfect,” not in the slightest. I don’t know how you could have read the books and not realized that. You also contradict yourself by saying that they are perfect and then later saying that Edward is abusive, possessive, etc. Weird definition of perfect, no? Second, how can you say that “teens don’t fall in love that fast”?!? That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard! All teens do is “fall in love fast” and become infatuated with each other. Ha. Mm, there is much more I could say, but I’ll end with this. Stephen King’s opinion on her writing doesn’t count for much for two reasons. One, though he is a writer himself, that very fact makes him a little biased, and he is probably just a little irked that Stephenie Meyer is currently a more popular author than he is. Two, he is criticizing her as a writer, which Stephenie herself has not claimed to be. She has said that she does not consider herself a writer, but rather a storyteller. Sure, she isn’t the best writer ever, but her millions of fans (and dollars haha) say that she’s one hell of a storyteller. Haha. She’s a smart woman who has managed to make herself rich and famous while giving girls something to obsess over haha. And you might be surprised by how many men like the series too. I’ve had some interesting experiences with that (think a big-tough-middle-aged-biker-guy-Twilight-lover… yea).

    Rewrite this and give 95 legitimate reasons, please.

    I personally didn’t mind the books as a lark (something to read) but, I’m not treating the saga as the new testament or anything, unlike many on Yahoo Answers Mythology and Folklore section…

    But, you have to admit that love it or hate it by blogging about it you’re giving more fuel to the fire…

    As opinions go one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and literature is quite the same…

    You are very, very wrong.
    You obviously have no emotion and are not prepared to suspend your disbelief.Whilst I admit Twilight is a VERY popular book at the moment and some people can become very obsessive and protective over it I think you are being extremly spiteful to a woman who has put all her love, passion, imagination and intelligence to a book which is a huge sucess. I believe you are jealous of her superb talent for words and I think her books hold a much deeper meaning than just a trashy high school romance, which is what you obviously think it is. Your bitterness towards her and her work is pretty offensive to say the least, your life must suck a lot for you to wake up one morning and think ” Yes, I’m going to post a blog stating 95 reasons why I hate Twilight!” It’s pretty sad don’t you think, that a person can be so sour to do this. And lastly, (you’ll be pleased to know) do you think you could write four books and still captivate audiences right till the very last page? No.
    You don’t have the heart, the sense, or the expertise to write even a page worthy of competing with Stephenie Meyer. Go to hell.

  697. My several cents
    Posted June 10, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    The Twilight craze has completely taken over the nation: the minds and Facebook profiles of teenaged girls across the country are consumed by this series of books and the accompanying movie, and it is really beyond understanding. Those who truly know good literature and what it entails cannot comprehend the attraction to these books, nor the obsession that so often results.
    Before the legions of angry Twilight defenders descend, hurling invective and claiming that no one has read the books can dare to criticize them, be aware that each one of the books has been read, cover to cover. And the books deserve every bit of legitimate criticism they receive.
    First and foremost, the characters themselves are appalling. Nobody in the entire world acts like the characters in this series, except in B-movies and romance novels. And girls, Edward is not that great. He’s paranoid, obsessive and controlling: sitting outside someone’s window while they sleep is not a romantic gesture. It’s stalking. Bella is what is known as a “Mary Sue”: a character written into a major role with her main purpose being wish fulfillment for the writer or readers (or both). Bella is not a well-developed character by any stretch of the imagination. Her main purpose is to narrate the story and complain about her life, allowing unhappy teenagers to insert their own personalities where Bella’s is left to be nonexistent, or annoying.
    As for the rest of the cast, the stereotypes are so obvious as to be sickening. The jealous “other man” (Jacob and apparently every other guy with whom Bella goes to school), the gooey best friends who contribute nothing but convenient interruptions to Bella’s musings on Edward, annoying parents and, in the case of these fantasy stories, slick, unlikeable but tempting villains. The list goes on and on, but the point is this: the characters are cardboard cutouts, destined to fall over at the first sign of a real plot line.
    And there is another problem: the story itself. Rarely, if ever, has a book (much less an entire series) been so contrived and poorly written that it really wasn’t worth finishing. Every book in the series follows the exact same narrative path, without changing a bit. A narrative arc is one thing; repeating it four times over many hundreds of pages is another.
    Meyer’s books are incredibly puerile in both content and form; they may be intended for younger audiences, but youth does not equal the inability to read complex stories or well-constructed sentences. Any stickler for proper grammar and good writing will be horrified at the sheer number of mistakes and poorly written sentences –even if the books were great, sloppy writing is sloppy writing, and it detracts from the work.
    The vampire genre itself is an old one, and many of the characteristics shown by Meyer’s cardboard lookalikes are nothing new. However, many of the traits are downright ridiculous when thought about (sparkly vampires? Really?). While holding onto a literary theme or motif for a long period of time can cause it to stagnate and become uninteresting, Meyer’s “innovations” on the vampire genre completely ignore any and all of what makes vampires so interesting. Her creations are emasculated, shiny and entirely too convenient for them to be the fascinating creatures promised by the series.
    One of the biggest issues with Meyer’s writing is her absolute inability to take a risk as an author. Nothing in real life works out as smoothly as it does in the Twilight series. The entire story line condenses into a simple, neat package, as easily put together as a four-piece puzzle, and about as interesting. Nothing goes wrong that is not remedied; no questions are left unanswered; no actual tragedy or real harm befalls any single character. No imagination or intelligence is required of the reader beyond the ability to read. When readers are left wishing that the villains had in fact killed a few of the main characters, something is not right.
    No story worth the acclaim Twilight has received should fall into place without even the slightest hitch. No books as long as these should leave the reader without anything to think about except how dreamy Edward is, or how much they wish they were Bella. Escapism is not a new tradition in writing, and it’s not without merit, but Twilight crosses over from “escapism” into “absolute pipe-dream.” Escapism can be lots of fun to read when it’s well done. Unfortunately for Twilight and its legions of fans, these books are not well done.
    In the end, there’s nothing wrong with sitting down and reading Twilight, if you don’t mind wasting several hours or days on a series of books not worth the paper on which they are printed. By all means, read and enjoy, drool over Edward, curse Jacob, revile the Volturi; that’s your prerogative. But stop insisting to the world that these are “the greatest books ever.” They aren’t.

    Ok so I’ll admit, I like Twilight.
    But I do agree with several of these points. While it has a fairly good plot line, Ms. Meyer’s actual writing skills aren’t that great. There are a lot of better writers out there who aren’t as famous/aren’t as rich/don’t get as much credit as her.
    But I do like the concept of being in love with a man who can always be there for you. Or something like that.
    And also, vampires are only stereotypically scary with fangs and burning in the sun. I like how Stefanie Meyer changed that.
    So I think i’m 50/50. I like the books but I agree with quite a lot of these reasons as to why they’re not good.

    Posted June 12, 2009 at 10:28 am

    BY THE WAY, BEFORE YOU READ THIS COMMENT– I am the author’s intended target. 14 year old girls. Go figure, huh?

    @Annie (who apparently loves twilight)

    Hater’s of twilight are not prepared to ’suspend their disbelief? How is that so? Just because we dislike twilight, why does that suddenly mean we hate vampires in general. I, in fact, am an avid fantasy reader, which includes vampires. Hellsing is my favorite vampire media at the moment, because it is awesome in a video format. I also enjoy books about Assassins. And magic. And magic Assassins.

    “I believe you are jealous of her superb talent for words ”
    No. No I am not. In fact, I read half the first book, and had to stop reading it was so bad. See, I didn’t bother reading all of it, because that was all I needed to know. Guess what? All of you, you’re loser claims fail to apply to me.
    Mayer can’t write decent literature. In fact, most of the books directed at teens are horribly put together. If you want something written WELL, go read something by Orson Scott Card. Or Brent Weeks. Hell, go pick up anything from the fantasy or sci-fi section, it is almost guaranteed to be written better.

    By the way, the main reason I hate Twilight is because it is so popular. That’s all. I’m not trying to be spiteful to Mayer, it is simply my opinion that her book was no-where near the level of her fame. It should not be that popular, because it is not good enough to deserve it.

    “do you think you could write four books and still captivate audiences right till the very last page? No.”

    YES. A WELL WRITTEN SERIES BY A GOOD AUTHOR CAN GIVE YOU 3 BOOKS OF 800 PAGES EACH, AND STILL LEAVE YOU CRAVING MORE. Another author can give you 3 trilogies in the same universe, and still have you craving more. Face it. ‘Twilight’ should not have been 4 books. Mayer failed to keep attention throughout those books.

    All you Twilight haters, face it. Give it up. Your opinion will never seep through the thick skull of Twilight. If you are so obviously bugged by such a book, it is a pretty good sign that your intelligence has surpassed the target audience. Stop perusing the Teen aisle. Nothing there will attract your interest.

    If anyone wants to hear my opinion on Twilight, please keep reading. PS: It is not a good one, so all you “Twilighters” can go somewhere else

    I began reading The Twilight Series as I was writing a review on it at the Queensland Post about a year ago. Even now it remains the most pointless book I have ever read. In fact I’d rather watch grass die. Seriously, that’s how bad it is. It’s just another obbesession like The disney channel stars (whom I also hate) and is hugely overrated. Just like my hero, Stephen King says “Twilihgt isn’t worth a darn”.Hahaha. But honestly, my entire family, including my 13 year old sister, can’t stand it. The reason for my hatred is, that it doesn’t have any remote character, book or writing development, and the ending is cheesy and trashy, just like stinking Stephenie herself (BTW, you don’t spell it like THAT). It is written horribly and completely overrated which is a complete disrespect to other incredible authors who sadly have not sold much to this crappy plague. Twilight sucks, and needs to die. Like Edward Cullen, who is pervy, like Josef Fritzel.

    I hate twilight becuase it’s predictable and such a clche’. LIke no one has ever read a tragic love story containing “I love you, if you leave me I will die.” And then he leaves and she almost dies and guess what – he saves her. Wow, not predictable at all.

    Also, if you guys really want a laugh, you should totally check out toxic_glorys writing journal on the internet. She used to be this total Twilight saga freak but she seems to be over it. Anyhoo, she wrote this piece called “my life as a teenage vampire.” It’s really rib cracking funny. Check it out.

    This reasons are so stupid and uncorrect. The girl (people) who wrote this reasons seems to not understend at all twilight Saga. The only reason Bella has not future like they said, is because her future is Edward, and the only future she will have is with Edward because he is the love of her life – AND THAT’S WAY EVERYBODY LIKE IT – BECAUSE BELLA’S LIFE IS PERFECT WITH EDWARD. AND THE BEST FUTURE FOT HER IS – EDWARD.

    By the way, “Edward cant read Bella’s mind because she dont have one” – One more reason to say that the people who wrote this are so stupid. EVERYBODY has a mind, and if those people was trying to be funny by writing this – they so NOT.

    “It’s predictable, and childish.” – You are sure you have been reading Harry Potter? not seems like that, sorry.

    Vampires are displayed in this book just like other normal people, they are not like in other vampire storys – thats why it is original and interesting. Twilight dont need TOO MUCH animation help, it’s interesting without that too. (What i cant say about Harry Potter).

    “Bella Swan means beautiful swan, which is horribly cheesy.” – What can i say? Why do you think the most perfect guy fall in love with her? JEALOUS.

    “The only reason I kept reading was to see if Bella could redeem herself by getting over him.” – You are sure it’s the reason ? so then you readed “Eclipse”, and “Breaking Dawn”. Bella was trying to get over him only in “New Moon” and not in the other books, that Stephenie wrote later.

    “Do any guys actually like Twilight?” – Most of the guy’s dont like Twilight because they cant have the personality of Edward, and that’s what gils want them to have.

    “There is too much face touching.” – AND WE LIKE IT.

    “People think Meyer is the best writer ever.” – Here is a good reason why people should read read this book, and not a reason why they shouldnt.

    “People say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter. Guess what? WRONG.” – that’s not a reason too, only your point of view. GET OVER IT, there is too much people who like Twilight, no matter that you will say.

    “The book was so bad we wrote 95 reasons why we hate it.” – The book was so good that you tried to find 95 stupid and uncorrect reasons, you are just angry that its a so good book – you spend so many time on it to find mistakes, and you hate this book – if you didnt like the book, you woldent spend so much time on it – YOU ARE JUST SO IDIOTS THAT ITS FUNNY :D

    So get over it. Really, if you dont like it (OR IF YOU HATE IT) stop spending so much time on it.
    Concentrate yourself on Harry Potter that is “so good” like you are saying.

    I read the books and i like them, sure the storyline could have been better, and Bella could have had more going on in her life than just focusing on Edward and maybe they did fall in love too fast, it is one of the most predictable cliche’s but who are you to judge. Have you attempted writing a book, i think not. It must have been good enough that it was sent to be printed.

    You call Twilight fans sad but arent you the sad one that has all that time to write 95 reasons why you hate the series, most of which were repeated.

    I think dont think that 61,62,63 are real as they all seemed to invovle the same thing and if they were you have no idea if they were joking or not. Were you there with them?

    I think what youve done here is completely pointless. I get that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I really liked the series and yeh their not the best books that ive ever read, they do have their faults but im not so closed minded as to say that they were ‘horrible’. Maybe you should stop being so jealous and narrow minded and think how hard it is to write a book and then how mean it is for someone to critisize, not to give ways on how she could have improved it.

    I just think that your reasons are just pathetic. Whoah have written loads. Just gonna say, am off out, you see, i have a life.

    Yeah the names are quite common lol
    If she had to make it with vampires
    A) no sparkles
    B)they all like are evil and are out to kill everyone and be creepy
    C)the werewolves and them like properly fight all the time
    D)they don’t like people
    E)they are there to kill werewolves/be terrorists/suck blood not fall in love, get back to work D:<
    F)Did the author know anything about vampires when she wrote this or did she think it would go well with the story or what?!

    conclusion: This list is awesome and Twilight is a disgrace.

    “Most of the guy’s dont like Twilight because they cant have the personality of Edward, and that’s what gils want them to have” Really? REALLY? I mean, is this girl for real?

    “The book was so good that you tried to find 95 stupid and uncorrect reasons, you are just angry that its a so good book – you spend so many time on it to find mistakes”

That’s so hot!” i cut in and said “How is that hot? its gay!” then she cut in and said “HOW IS THAT NOT HOT?” and my guy friend and I just laughed. omg, this list is freaking amazing!

    BTW, my name is promoting an AWESOME book series, that has action, adventure, and yes: drama and romance, but only, its done PROPERLY! Which reminds me, there is only one good thing about Stephanie Meyer:
    My friend (who likes Twilight) looked on Meyer’s blog, and SHE SPOKE HIGHLY ABOUT THIS SERIES! I know: i would run away if that so called “author” recommened it, but you know, oh well, its publicity. =]

    No offense to Twilight lovers but you are INSANLY defensive. Please it’s just a book, let Stephanie Meyer defend herself.

    I am 13 and I read the entire Twilight Saga. I enjoyed it. For some strange reason, there are many people who have this concept that anyone who loves twilight is an overobsessed teenage girl. Looking at many of the commenters resent the fact that someone has insulted Twilight, you may think this is true. Well it’s not. My mother, father, many of my classmates (Male and Female), And ALL of my teachers, two of them Male have read the series. I am not overobsessed. I am not crazy. I am a honor student with a 4.3 GPA and 127 point IQ and I love Twilight!!!

This book goes against every concept of vampires i personally like vampires i found them misterious and cool and elegant Twilight has destroyed tha for me with how gay they look and weird. You know another thing i like. Women i’m a male 16 year old and i was raised by my mother so i respect women very much and this book basically states that women are rather to stupid or to weak to survive on their own. Newflash people THey’r not. i Think in this case Burning books isn’t so bad

    twilight sucked ass and the movie was even worse. honestly, harry potter is waaaaaay better. Dude, i had to say this- Twilight fun? What you said before made me fall over laughing:
    “Do any guys actually like Twilight?” – Most of the guy’s dont like Twilight because they cant have the personality of Edward, and that’s what gils want them to have.
    PFFFFFFTTT! yea RIIIIIGHT!!!! okaii, so the guys that dont read twilight want to stalk theircrushes that they fell in love with in less than a month? umm….no. Edward is a perverted stalker who is conviniently a pedophile also.
    and the person who wrote this was soooo right about the fangirls of twilight having no proper grammar. they all make up random words that are inproper or dont exist -snorts- i, for one, hate improper grammar. i am a writer myself, so it irks me
    i cant believe how many people (girls with no lives….) obsess over this! its like….Edward is FICTIONAL, you cannot marry him, you cannot have his freakish not-so-sparkly baby, and live happily ever after for eternity as a vampire! get OVER yourselves!
    also, please tell m how a twilight FAN stumbles upon a list of 95 resons why twilight SUCKED?!?! really, they have no lives. i hate flamers- they look for things to criticze just for the sake of doing it. they say we have no lives? if we dont then….it must be horrible for them.

    Posted June 21, 2009 at 4:53 am

    Lol!!
    I havn\’t read the books, but I\’ve seen the movie. Just over an hour ago I watched \”Interview with a Vampire\” and I looked back on Twilight and just laughed. I mean, I really agree with the whole \”twist\” thing to make a story more interesting, but sparkling vampires? You can twist them a bit, but I think you should still stick with the main points about vampires. The first people to pick this book up knew vampires.
    As I said before, I haven\’t read it. But telling from these points, I can see that this book focuses on fellings and emotions of a female rather than the actual story. That\’s why people love it, they get pleasure from reading it. A good book has a good storyline, keeps it going, has good development. I hate Mary Sue characters. And that thing with Jacob being dumped, good point. What kind of moral is that?
    I don\’t hate Twilight because of it\’s flaws (even though they just make me laugh) but the FANGIRLS!! EVERY time you mention vampires, it\’s always Twilight. I honestly loved vampires BEFORE Twilight. I like the type from that movie I mentioned. Count Dracula type is ok, though a little sterotypical. Gothic vampires are the way to go! I also heard (not sure if it\’s true) that Meyer didn\’t even know much about vampires when she wrote it. i don\’t despise her at all, she did her best and was succesful, I congradulate her on that. It\’s just the fangirls, honestly. THE WORLD ISN\’T TWILIGHT.
    Also there\’s a lot of authors that I think \”Hey, I can do better than that\” and I can, if I took the time to. Meyer is one of those. I don\’t care if I\’m not as successful, as long as I write some good literature.
    To the fangirls, try looking at some quality vampire stuff. You\’ll see why we dispise the Twilight vampires.
    And only one point I don\’t agree on; number 70. Come on, fictional characters can be hot! It\’s just the obsession part thats a little weird…
    (and lol, light yagami part! XD)

    Um.. all i have to say is that these reasons are NOT true! everyone has their own opinions and some of these reasons cant even be called reasons! one reason you stated was that there was too much face touching, well if you dont like romance then dont read it. also, bella talks about edward 24/7- so? if your in love, or if anyone falls in love then they would talk about them 24/7. you obviously dont know what real love is about. did you even read the book? because i dont agree with you. thats my opinion.
    P.S – dont say the book has a terrible plot because at least she knows how to write a book, a CONVINCING ONE.

    I don’t get it. Why are there twilight lovers on a website called “Why I hate Twilight.”? It makes no sense. And also, people who don’t like twilight have lives, their’s just don’t revolve around EDWARD-FREAKEN-CULLEN. So, he’s supposed to be hot, Chase Crawford is hot too, you don’t see people falling over him. And by the WAY, Chase Crawford is an actual person who is alive and non fictional.

    I think Edward is gay and is using bella as a cover story. Make sense? I don’t know, comment if you will. Also, the movie sucked. None of the actors had any emotion, like, AT-FREAKEN-ALL. I live in South-Arica (yes, people in Africa can read) and the people over here didn’t pay any attention to the book at all until the sucky movie came out.When I walk around school I see people walking around with the book everywehre where two years ago it was just another book with too many pages.

    I read Twilight and then i stopped. One it’s a shallow unorginal plot. Yay yet another vampire story because we haven’t read those before! But no she then decides to put a feud between vampires and werewolves. How orginal.

    On one of them (i can’t remember which my friends read this crap) it prattles on about Bella being depressed without Edward for the first half of the bloody book. Then lets commit suicide because he’s not around. (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend?)

    I mean even anime fans don’t cry themselves to sleep at night because Sasuke or Lelouch aren’t real. (And that’s saying something if you’re more crazy than a Sasuke fan girl!)

    Bottom line: Read a real vampire story. Read Anne Rice! Or atleast a story with a plot and actual (believable) characters.

    I am so sorry, but I couldn’t help but laugh at this comment. Talk about hypocrisy. You claim not to be insane despite using all capitals, but just because you claim not to be proves nothing. I could say I’m not a girl, but I think anyone who looked between my legs could tell differently. It is easier to take the side of someone not freaking out against an opinion such as you, because it shows a sense of clarity in their own logic and reasoning as you clearly lack. You yell at the person posting this because you say they have no right, but if you have a write to like something, they have every right to disagree. So what if I said you have no right to post what you just said? I think you’d disagree with me immensely. It’s called freedom of speech hon. You’re right, Twilight fans have the right to love what they want as anyone does, just as anyone else has the right to hate what they want. The door swings both ways. As you put it, you can “get a life” and stop wasting your time on things you know you won’t agree with. If you are a die hard Twilight fan, you know you are going to get irritated by reading something titled “Why I Hate Twilight.” No jealousy involved, but a simple matter of stating an opinion. As for why they kept reading, check number 30: “We read the entire series just to laugh at the stupidity of it. ” I think that clarifies it. If you hate this list so much…why would you keep reading it?

    Oh, and if you want people to take you seriously. Stop being insane or lazy, which ever is behind the excessive use of capital letters, so that people won’t automatically assume you to be a close minded Twilight fan. Though we may write or verbalize our contempt for the book, we respect that you have every right to love it. You don’t see this person going to pro-Twilight fan sites and bashing all the Twilighters out there. Those who do go and do that are just as close minded as you are, but it seems there are far less of those insane anti-Twilighters than there are insane pro-Twilighters. In addition to this advice, work on proper syntax and grammar and maybe we might not consider you some Edward obsessed teenager who conforms to the desire of traits romanticized in something as Twilight rather than using your own mind to realize what you really want in life outside of a fictional vampire of perfection.

    Have a nice day.

    Okay some of the reasons are lame but they are funny. Personally i have no fondness for twilight but worse things have been written. I think people should just leave it the heck alone so it will fade away and i won’t have to hear anything more about it but that wont happen anytime soon with another movie coming out. Time to buy some more asprin and leave the tv and computer off.

    Ha you call meyer repetitive. How many times do you have to mention you don’t like sparkles. This is just about the most ridiculous list i have read. You could have summed up your opinions in maximum twenty points. I know its your opinion, but it kind of gets pathetic towards the end and it really shows how cynical you are. Stop taking things to seriously. Chill out. Breathe. Be happy.

    what i don’t understand, among many things, is whether or not the purpose of this, erm, list, was to take the piss out of twilight or the fans themselves. Its not your opinion on twilight that annoys me, i get it, you hate it. But it is the fact that you had the time to come up with over 90 points on why you hate it, most of which dont even make sense! You criticize the names! Come on, is that the best you can do. Mock the names Bella, Edward, Alice, Jasper, etc.

  763. Posted June 23, 2009 at 5:55 am

    ok i have read the twilight saga. and i loved it but i still lmao when i read this because if u look at it in a certian way any way. i agree that some fans go overbored with it and they need 2 chill. in my opinion they r some of the best books i have read much better than The Hobbit u i hate that book read the whole book and cant rember anything about it. every 1 has there opinion and every 1 has a right 2 like and hate what the want 2. but i dont think it is right 2 put a bunch of trash about a book just because u didnt like it and yes i do know 2 guys that like twilight well 1 of them is gay in mine and my friends opinion. anyway. these books r not 4 every1 and niether r ur precious harry potter even though i like harry potter too. and 4 stephiene meyer messing up vampires i think that it makes the story unique. because if it is just another stupid ordinary vampire story i would probavally hate it.

    Okay, at least read this all the way through, ok?
    Reasons 1/2: Bella being clumsy doesn’t really matter.
    3: I agree that she’s pretty useless sometimes.
    4: She did not attempt to commit suicide, she was cliff diving for a thrill.
    5: Meyer is a mother of three, and it’s fine to hate her books, but you don’t have to hate her as a person.
    6: She openly admits that she’s not a writer, she had a dream, started writting and it became a book, and she is very modest about it.
    7: What if the first person who thought about writing vampires didn’t do it because it wasn’t “the way things were”?
    8: She doens’t even put herself in with the authers
    9: I’m with you on that one. I think that loving a story is great, but you should also still live your life.
    10: Hahaha, well yes, but that happens in most stories.
    11: He has many flaws, only Bella is so blinded by her love that she can’t see them. He knows how flawed he is.
    12: Bella is supposed to be a plain character, but I still disagree.
    13: Hahaha….because all the Forks highschool boys are hormonal and will take anything new.
    14: You could say the same thing about Juliet.
    15: Some parents are like that, but that is true that it’s awfully convienient. Then again, that’s probably why it’s fiction.
    16: It’s true, I do wish that she had developed the characters more.
    17: Bella’s just really bad at everything, like with being clummsy and all that. She can’t help that.
    18: Everyone has they’re personal oppinions.
    19: It does sound creepy, and in Midnight Sun (Edward’s story) he is thinking the same thing. But if they had been dating at the time, it wouldn’t have been creepy to people.
    20: It can be cheesy at times. Of course! Almost all stories have they’re moments.
    21: Stephenie Meyer has her own way of writting.
    22: What? You’re not allowed to like both? Well better kill me than.
    23: Bella is very obsorbed in her love interest.
    24: There are flaws in everything.
    25: Jacob: ‘You don’t worry about the fangs?” Bella: “Shut up Jacob! You know he doesn’t have fangs!”–Eclipse, page 218.
    26: I think it’s cool that she has her own version of vampires. If people never went against the grain, vampires wouldn’t have even been written about.
    27: ‘”Bella,” my mom said to me as I got on the plain.’ Twilight, page 4.
    28: I like face touching. :(
    29: So are most every story. It’s called forshadowing.
    Real 30: Haha. Well I hope you en joyed it. lol
    31: What should she have named them? Begarth, and Nalton? Maybe she just liked those names.
    32: I agree with that, it doesn’t make sense that he can’t sweat, he can’t cry, but he can impregnant.
    33: That’s your opinon and you are allowed to voice it.
    34: Some poeple also believe that Robert Pattinson is in love with them. That doesn’t effect the story at all.
    35: Sometimes.
    36: Well, all stories have something in common with others.
    37: You have a better idea? What’s so bad about that?
    38: You can make fun of anything. Jesus is really easy to make fun of too. lol
    39: The book wasn’t made for ten year olds.
    40: It’s hard to fit everything in. And the story wasn’t about them.
    41: Other people’s actions shouldn’t make one bit of differance in what YOU like or don’t.
    42: Fangirls go overboard a lot. Still, what differance does it make to YOU liking or disliking something?
    43: Stephen King is not god. Who cans what he thinks? look at answer above.
    44: Good reason.
    43: Okay then. lol
    44: That makes no sense.
    45: Meyer never even thought of herself as a writer, she just wrote a book and people loved it. A LOT.
    46: You’ve repeated this reason many times.
    47: Oh no!
    48: Hahahaha! Well that’s a good reason. Funny one though.
    49: I know many actually.
    50: Most books/movies do that.
    51: Actually teenagers fall in love the most quickly. But I think you’re right about it all happening so fast. But that’s kind of the plot. Maddly in love and all that.
    52: Hahahaha! You’re funny. :D
    53: Haha. That’s not what she Meyer was saying at all.
    54: I know what you mean. I really wish that some of these fan girls would just give it a rest. Even worse then that though is the fact that a lot of them think that Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) is actually the character he plays. Hense him being attacked by screaming fangirls (aka stalkers) dayly.
    55: Actually she’d been there for two.
    http://stepheniemeyer.com/pdf/midnightsun_partial_draft4.pdf
    Page 106-110.
    56: If you read Twilight, Bella notices that Rosalie and Emmett look too old to be in highschool, and he didn’t change Alice or Jasper, Esme’s not a teen, so only Edward.
    57-61: I agree with that very much. It’s no wonder you hate it when these are the only kinds of Twilight fans you’ve spoken too. I don’t think that it is right at all to threaten someone’s life just for voicing they’re oppinions. I don’t hate you, and I don’t disrespect you simply because you don’t like Twilght. Infact, I would love to hear you’re response to this, so e-mail me at brinna_drew@yahoo.com please.
    62: haha. Interesting theory.
    63: o.O ? lol
    64: If I were him I’d do the same thing. Hahaha.
    65: Hahahaha. I really do think that Stephenie Meyer is a good person, no matter how much you hate her books/fans.
    66: Vampire vs Werewolf is a classic.
    67: I agree. There’s nothing wrong with reading, loving and even obsessing a little over fictional things. But when it interfears with your life, it’s a problem.
    68: I disagree, but again, your oppinion is yours to voice.
    69: Well, thats the whole point of the story, she’s so in love that she doesn’t even care about herself anymore.
    70: Some people are so insane…..:(
    71: That may be true. I just hate it when someone likes Twilight because it’s so popular, or hates it because of the fans behind it.
    72: Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! rotl
    73: *sigh* that’s the point when you need to look at your life and say “what the hell happened?!”
    74: Hahaha. He doesn’t age. So he’s actually younger than him. She’s the pedophile. hahaha.
    75: Again, you kind of repeat yourself in this thing. :)
    76: I always hated Jacob for that. :(
    77: That is so lame. haha.
    78: Hahahaha. I doubt it.
    79: Repeat again.
    80: Love is a funny thing.
    81: He made her kiss him, abandened her because she loved vampires, and fell for her infent child. He’s not perfect either.
    82: sigh.
    83: Hahaha.
    84: Thats no reason not to read them.
    85: Again, I agree.
    86: Other peoples oppinions don’t change mine.
    87: Nice.
    88: Good reasons.
    89: WTF? He wouldn’t approve of a lot of things.
    90: Personal opinion.
    91: Look above.
    92: lol
    Okay, that’s my arrgument. lol
    E-mail me please and tell me your opinion.
    I think you sound nice and I’m not going to hate you just because you hate something I like a lot.

    55: Actually she\\\’d been there for two.

    Page 106-110.
    56: If you read Twilight, Bella notices that Rosalie and Emmett look too old to be in highschool, and he didn\\\’t change Alice or Jasper, Esme\\\’s not a teen, so only Edward.
    57-61: I agree with that very much. It\\\’s no wonder you hate it when these are the only kinds of Twilight fans you\\\’ve spoken too. I don\\\’t think that it is right at all to threaten someone\\\’s life just for voicing they\\\’re oppinions. I don\\\’t hate you, and I don\\\’t disrespect you simply because you don\\\’t like Twilght. Infact, I would love to hear you\\\’re response to this, so e-mail me at brinna_drew@yahoo.com please.
    62: haha. Interesting theory.
    63: o.O ? lol
    64: If I were him I\\\’d do the same thing. Hahaha.
    65: Hahahaha. I really do think that Stephenie Meyer is a good person, no matter how much you hate her books/fans.
    66: Vampire vs Werewolf is a classic.
    67: I agree. There\\\’s nothing wrong with reading, loving and even obsessing a little over fictional things. But when it interfears with your life, it\\\’s a problem.
    68: I disagree, but again, your oppinion is yours to voice.
    69: Well, thats the whole point of the story, she\\\’s so in love that she doesn\\\’t even care about herself anymore.
    70: Some people are so insane…..:(
    71: That may be true. I just hate it when someone likes Twilight because it\\\’s so popular, or hates it because of the fans behind it.
    72: Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! rotl
    73: *sigh* that\\\’s the point when you need to look at your life and say \\\”what the hell happened?!\\\”
    74: Hahaha. He doesn\\\’t age. So he\\\’s actually younger than him. She\\\’s the pedophile. hahaha.
    75: Again, you kind of repeat yourself in this thing. :)
    76: I always hated Jacob for that. :(
    77: That is so lame. haha.
    78: Hahahaha. I doubt it.
    79: Repeat again.
    80: Love is a funny thing.
    81: He made her kiss him, abandened her because she loved vampires, and fell for her infent child. He\\\’s not perfect either.
    82: sigh.
    83: Hahaha.
    84: Thats no reason not to read them.
    85: Again, I agree.
    86: Other peoples oppinions don\\\’t change mine.
    87: Nice.
    88: Good reasons.
    89: WTF? He wouldn\\\’t approve of a lot of things.
    90: Personal opinion.
    91: Look above.
    92: lol
    Okay, that\\\’s my arrgument. lol
    E-mail me please and tell me your opinion.
    I think you sound nice and I\\\’m not going to hate you just because you hate something I like a lot.

    Okay, at least read this all the way through, ok?
    Reasons 1/2: Bella being clumsy doesn’t really matter.
    3: I agree that she’s pretty useless sometimes.
    4: She did not attempt to commit suicide, she was cliff diving for a thrill.
    5: Meyer is a mother of three, and it’s fine to hate her books, but you don’t have to hate her as a person.
    6: She openly admits that she’s not a writer, she had a dream, started writting and it became a book, and she is very modest about it.
    7: What if the first person who thought about writing vampires didn’t do it because it wasn’t “the way things were”?
    8: She doens’t even put herself in with the authers
    9: I’m with you on that one. I think that loving a story is great, but you should also still live your life.
    10: Hahaha, well yes, but that happens in most stories.
    11: He has many flaws, only Bella is so blinded by her love that she can’t see them. He knows how flawed he is.
    12: Bella is supposed to be a plain character, but I still disagree.
    13: Hahaha….because all the Forks highschool boys are hormonal and will take anything new.
    14: You could say the same thing about Juliet.
    15: Some parents are like that, but that is true that it’s awfully convienient. Then again, that’s probably why it’s fiction.
    16: It’s true, I do wish that she had developed the characters more.
    17: Bella’s just really bad at everything, like with being clummsy and all that. She can’t help that.
    18: Everyone has they’re personal oppinions.
    19: It does sound creepy, and in Midnight Sun (Edward’s story) he is thinking the same thing. But if they had been dating at the time, it wouldn’t have been creepy to people.
    20: It can be cheesy at times. Of course! Almost all stories have they’re moments.
    21: Stephenie Meyer has her own way of writting.
    22: What? You’re not allowed to like both? Well better kill me than.
    23: Bella is very obsorbed in her love interest.
    24: There are flaws in everything.
    25: Jacob: ‘You don’t worry about the fangs?” Bella: “Shut up Jacob! You know he doesn’t have fangs!”–Eclipse, page 218.
    26: I think it’s cool that she has her own version of vampires. If people never went against the grain, vampires wouldn’t have even been written about.
    27: ‘”Bella,” my mom said to me as I got on the plain.’ Twilight, page 4.
    28: I like face touching. :(
    29: So are most every story. It’s called forshadowing.
    Real 30: Haha. Well I hope you en joyed it. lol
    31: What should she have named them? Begarth, and Nalton? Maybe she just liked those names.
    32: I agree with that, it doesn’t make sense that he can’t sweat, he can’t cry, but he can impregnant.
    33: That’s your opinon and you are allowed to voice it.
    34: Some poeple also believe that Robert Pattinson is in love with them. That doesn’t effect the story at all.
    35: Sometimes.
    36: Well, all stories have something in common with others.
    37: You have a better idea? What’s so bad about that?
    38: You can make fun of anything. Jesus is really easy to make fun of too. lol
    39: The book wasn’t made for ten year olds.
    40: It’s hard to fit everything in. And the story wasn’t about them.
    41: Other people’s actions shouldn’t make one bit of differance in what YOU like or don’t.
    42: Fangirls go overboard a lot. Still, what differance does it make to YOU liking or disliking something?
    43: Stephen King is not god. Who cans what he thinks? look at answer above.
    44: Good reason.
    43: Okay then. lol
    44: That makes no sense.
    45: Meyer never even thought of herself as a writer, she just wrote a book and people loved it. A LOT.
    46: You’ve repeated this reason many times.
    47: Oh no!
    48: Hahahaha! Well that’s a good reason. Funny one though.
    49: I know many actually.
    50: Most books/movies do that.
    51: Actually teenagers fall in love the most quickly. But I think you’re right about it all happening so fast. But that’s kind of the plot. Maddly in love and all that.
    52: Hahahaha! You’re funny. :D
    53: Haha. That’s not what she Meyer was saying at all.
    54: I know what you mean. I really wish that some of these fan girls would just give it a rest. Even worse then that though is the fact that a lot of them think that Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) is actually the character he plays. Hense him being attacked by screaming fangirls (aka stalkers) dayly.

Infact, I would love to hear you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’re response to this, so e-mail me at brinna_drew@yahoo.com please.
    62: haha. Interesting theory.
    63: o.O ? lol
    64: If I were him I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’d do the same thing. Hahaha.
    65: Hahahaha. I really do think that Stephenie Meyer is a good person, no matter how much you hate her books/fans.
    66: Vampire vs Werewolf is a classic.
    67: I agree. There\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s nothing wrong with reading, loving and even obsessing a little over fictional things. But when it interfears with your life, it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s a problem.
    68: I disagree, but again, your oppinion is yours to voice.
    69: Well, thats the whole point of the story, she\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s so in love that she doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t even care about herself anymore.
    70: Some people are so insane…..:(
    71: That may be true. I just hate it when someone likes Twilight because it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s so popular, or hates it because of the fans behind it.
    72: Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! rotl
    73: *sigh* that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s the point when you need to look at your life and say \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”what the hell happened?!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”
    74: Hahaha. He doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t age. So he\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s actually younger than him. She\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s the pedophile. hahaha.
    75: Again, you kind of repeat yourself in this thing. :)
    76: I always hated Jacob for that. :(
    77: That is so lame. haha.
    78: Hahahaha. I doubt it.
    79: Repeat again.
    80: Love is a funny thing.
    81: He made her kiss him, abandened her because she loved vampires, and fell for her infent child. He\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s not perfect either.
    82: sigh.
    83: Hahaha.
    84: Thats no reason not to read them.
    85: Again, I agree.
    86: Other peoples oppinions don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t change mine.
    87: Nice.
    88: Good reasons.
    89: WTF? He wouldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t approve of a lot of things.
    90: Personal opinion.
    91: Look above.
    92: lol
    Okay, that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s my arrgument. lol
    E-mail me please and tell me your opinion.

    I totally agree with all of these and they had me totally in stitches.
    But the thing that bugs me most is that Meyers says that the books were based on/inspired by some of the greatest literature ever written; Twilight- Pride and Prejudice, New Moon- Romeo and Juliet, Eclipse- Whuthering Heights and Breaking Dawn- A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I’m not a big fan of these (except maybe P&P- happy endings aren’t all bad.) but at least they were well written. And the idea that there are any types of comparisons being made between them truly gets under my skin.

    Hi. Well I can see that you completely aired your views upon The Twilight Series, and have received a numerous amount of negative responses, along with a couple who feel exactly the way you do.

    I would like to explain the reason why most teenage girls, as myself, or even older women have for expressing and defending to such extremes goddess Stephenie Meyer and the whole Saga. I believe it is the whole issue of sexual tension that exists between Bella and Edward, which you don’t get alot nowadays where raging hormonal teenagers just have a couple of sips of some cheap beer and start undressing themselves while playing spin the bottle. Also, the loss of the art of romanticism, ofcourse most of the phrases in the series are extremely corny and sometimes cliche and also appear very “suicidal”, but which author has the guts to publish a book with such literary errors and views that are not present any longer in this nation?, and what person would not like to have an “unconditional” love who suffers while being at your side ?(either for exquisite and tasty smell or because you are incredibly gorgeous and I can’t makeout with you), or have someone who is even the least willing to express suicidal thought, without the fear of being considered a perfect candidate of the psychiatrist, because they aren’t able to live by your side?

    Its not the perfect panorama that should be attained as a model for teenage girls, but it just shows how much lack of love a lot of people around the globe have and grasping it with a vampire/human novel, makes everyone daydream.

    Which is exactly why I am pro-twilight. Because maybe now teenagers will have an inner conflict in deciding whether or not they really do love a person instead of just going around dancing in circles saying, i love john, and later seeing the guy hooking up with a chick in the corner, and later running in circles saying i love mark. I know that a lot of people especially men, criticize the character edward because they believe that now women will unfallibly wait for a vampire love until the grow old, but I believe that edward is a good fictional character, not because he is “gorgeous” but because he raises the average standards for men especially the “today” man who has lost a lot of respect for women and lets just say anyone. ( i see it all the time, i live in the city and trust me when I say loss of respect. )

    As for Isabella Swan, Yes. She is clumsy. Yes. She is sometimes drowned in “edward” thoughts, but it is only because she is in love with him. Maybe it might have started with the fact that he is almost godlike but throughout the series her personality evolves and she does recognize his flaws (she mentions how he is always blaming himself for the damage that she causes upon herself and how he is extremely overprotective of her )and she does go beyond the means to break some of his rules.(hello. she went to la push while he was away, and also went to save her mom even though he told her DONT GO BELLA.) She is strength in character because she is stubborn, but she also shows her dominant side(hello. she convinced edward to have sexual intercouse with her even though he had said no.), and yet she can be completely fragile and defensless. Which in total equals perfect balance between both characters because they have a mutualistic relationship that evens out each others flaws.

    But since I am trying severely hard to sound diplomatic, i will end this with saying one thing, well several:

    I think that you are a person who is uncapable of reading such in depth literature because you are too consumed reading each line as if you were a grammar teacher. Ayyeeeee mate, I would love to see some of your emotional writing, I would like to see if you use original character names like bam bam noodle butt or dishwasher. Yeaaa, i know you love those because they are o-rigi-nal, not like edward or bella. Yeaaa you like that huh?huh? punk. Also, please define author, because I did not know that writing a novel had “rules” or even writing at all, in that case they should ban those damn haikus because they really do not say ish. The book is about love, not about the “Adventures of Alice: Seeing the future” or “A guide to controlling people emotions:Jasper”. I think the only part in your reasons for hating twilight which where purposely trying to be funny, and that actually made me laugh was the Chuch Norris one. So kudos on that one. Yeaaa I am a die hard Twilight fan, and by the way if it werent called the Twilight Series, then should it be called “The phases of the day series, or maybe the phases of the moon series.” Ayyeee mate. Youre just stating the obvious, which doesn’t make it a good reason for hating twilight.”

    Peace out.

You also say that all twilight fans are insane. You’re insane, does that mean every person that also hates twilght is insane? no. Now i have no problem with you coming on and saying what you think the books flaws are, thats fine. But what does how twilight fans act have anything to do with the book itself? You are basically coming on here and criticizing twilight fans for no reason, and that shoudnt be allowed.

    Ok, look I think that everyone should just chill. Freedom of speech sure, but, come on people, opinions are something that people use to air their views. Twilight lovers on a “Why I hate Twilight” sight is just realy sad.

    THere asre a lot of books out there that are better, that’s true, like Vampire Diaries, The mortal instruments, Night world. Everyone of them is diffrent, everyone of them has a diffrent point of view. But in none of the books I have read have the vampires EVER been sparkly, glittery, shiny warawarawara. They do, however, burst into flames. Which is really cool.

    And thinking out 95 reasons as to why she hates twilight is not pathetic, it’s just a way to show how she feels about the whole stupid saga. And , also, no one ever said that the reasons had to make sense, I’m not going to tell anyone to get a llife, except maybe for the twilighters on this sight, but I am going to say that everyone should just calm down, Whoo saaa. Get it? Got it? Good.

    I was a really big Twilight fan… Now that I look back at it, I hate it. No offence to the real fans. It is going too far to say you’re going to kill someone though. I mean come on! It’s not real, it’s FICTION. So shut the hell up. When I was a big fan, and I mean a BIG fan, I would get really worked up about people bashing on edward and the book. But, I’m over it! Ya’ll are acting like obsessed children(I used to be one of you). But, just take a look at what you’re getting so pissed about..what?..

    i am NOT a twilight fan, and i never got past book 1..
    but you shouldn’t hate Ms. Meyer if you want to criticize her book…
    ..and c’mon,what does Harry Potter,Light Yagami have to do with all this?Hello,NERD much!
    they’re fictional characters too..

    lol. that was the best thing i have read in a while. Very amusing and just about 99% true. But i must say, its harsh to critisize Stephinie so bad. I dont think she is a terrible writer just because the plot of the stroy was cliche and the characters were a bit shallow. Have you read her other book The Host, that was pretty good, though i could not help but to notice that it was a bit similar to twilight. oh well

    Hey, not all Twilight Fans spell badly, have their lives revolved around Edward or act like totally brain washed zombies who want to kill anyone who insults Twilight. :(

    But, I’ve got to agree with some points, like the one about Edward Cullen being a pedophile. When I was reading the book I kept laughing when he mentioned that he was 100 something. And, I would have been totally okay with Bella moving on and choosing Jacob. But, noooooooooooo. Oh, well.

    I liked the books though. Even, if alot of people say they suck.
    By the way, some of the points maybe found really offensive by some fans. So, yeah. Maybe you could tone down the hatred a tad bit ’cause not everyone hates Twilight.

  786. LauraLaura
    Posted June 26, 2009 at 7:28 am

    “Dexter” says he hopes someone assassinates Stephenie Meyer. This, i hope proves that it is not only Twilight fans who are violent. Yes some fans are a little crazy and will resort to physical violence if you diss the book. But please stop stereotyping. Things like all twilight fans are violent, obsessed and illiterate is just annoying because its not true. I am not going to say all anti-twilighters are crazy just because one of them wants to kill Stephenie Meyer. She’s isnt holding you down and making you read the damn book, she wrote it for those who like it, which there are a lot of. So stop judging the book because you dont like the fans. This is a website about books, not fans of books.

    ScribbledDoodles: I don’t think the Author should do anything with the offensive points, it’s his/her opinion, why change it? If the Twilight fans don’t like, they shouldn’t be reading this, after of it’s called “Why I Hate Twilight”.

    LauraLaura: You say not all Twilight fans are violent, well I would like to believe you but from my personal experience I haven’t met any non-violent Twilight fans. All of them are so obsessed with that book they are ready to kill you and I’m not joking there. It is pathetic. Besides, Dexter wasn’t commenting on the Twilight fans, he was commenting on the writer, don’t confuse that. People are, in fact, discussing the book here, and nobody would even care about the fans if they weren’t making peoples lives harder.

    Everybody has a right for their opinion and if the Author of this 95 reasons puts them this way, it is his/her right to do so, besides the criticism is very good.

    And you mentioned the vampires sparkling like 3 times….I think you guys just needed a ton of reasons so people would look at the vast reasons why these books suck, and think, “Woah! These books must be awful cus some ppl came up with 95 reasons why their so bad!”
    But most of those reason are just junk….and stupid opinions.
    Like, the Bedward thing..

    Hello :)

    While I am happy that there are people that can give criticism longer than one angry sentence, I don’t think that any book should be crushed like that. Yes, it’s lame to be in ‘love’ with fictional characters, but pouring all your anger into hating them is not that great too.

    I’ve read a lot of books in my life, including most of the old classics, a lot of fantasy and crime novels and yes, several of S.King’s too.Reading Twilight was somewhat enjoyable and on my mind for a week or so…it was neither that great, nor that bad – definitely not worth obsessing over. Cliche plot and Mary-sue characters aren’t the best choice when writing a novel, but Twilight seems to have a little ’somethng’ that appeals to people and makes some of them happy – is that a bad thing, I ask? There are a lot of books worthy of reading out there, so if you don’t like this one – just go and pick another; I think doing that will be a better way of spending your time than bashing what others read( I’m not talking about this article, or well-rounded criticism – I’m talking about all the lame hate going around the Internet). And when a person obsesses over a fictional character – well, that speaks for itself about him/her – do we need to shout it to the world?

    That’s just my opinion on the matter, no offense to anyone. Whether a person likes/doesn’t like a book is up to them and their taste and shouldn’t be taken SO seriously :)

    I agree on many points. I think Meyer’s mormon beliefs really show in her books. Also she builds, builds, and builds to a big climax….and just has it end with everyone talking. like the rest of the book. In Breaking Dawn, the one thing i wanted to read was the battle part. and it didnt even happen. I hate how Meyer shows Bella, who is supposed to be the heroine, as a weak, stupid, and helpless girl. She doesnt really have any endearing qualitites but no character flaws either. This is my opinion, and any Twilight fans can go “OMG Edwrd is sooo HOTT” blog on Twilight sites.
    P.S. Issa– “yur” is not a word. it’s “your”. maybe go read some real literature and you will learn how to spell correctly.
    Also, how are we supposed to say this to the author’s face? Fly to where she lives? break into her house? The internet is for venting, honey.

    it sucks, i know a lot of girls who take the book to far.
    i call them the twilight fan club or the KKK.

    And ‘furthermore’, has anyone else noticed that everyone standing up for twilight is A) using word’s too big for them to grasp how awkward their writing is, B) using words hysterically out of context, C) pathetically attempting to defend their hero by falling into the stereotypical twitard lingo (lyk OHEMGE! SHUT UPP!!!!! STEPTHENIE MEYER IS DA BOMBBA!) or D) trashing on more talented writers when they have nothing to back up their jabs with.

    JK Rowling has unreal talent. Harry Potter is 100000000000000000000000 times more imaginative, and better written than Twilight. Twilight is a flat-liner as a novel. Nothing happens during the course of the story to change the outcome. The whole saga is nothing short of unnecessary. And don’t you dare say that without Twilight you would have nothing to read.

    Try:

    The Vampire Diaries, The House Of Night Series, The Blue Bloods Series, The Evernight Series, The Evermore Series, The Awakening Series, The Vampire Academy Series, The Cirque Du Freak Series, etc.

    I could go on forever. The only reason anyone likes Twilight is because it hands you a cookie cutter fantasy on a platter and shoes big enough to fit any clown.

    I’m not saying that people can’t like Twilight. All I want is for them to shut the funk up about it. How would you like it if I ran through a public place screeching about whatever book I’m reading? (Which is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by the way. Totally awesome!)

    Okay. I’m done ranting.

    You tell her to get a life, and the term is GET a life, not have, when you just read 95 reasons why someone hates something you love.

    Why?

    So you could yell at them and call them bad names.

    I totally see the logic in your thinking! If you have a right to love it, you can bet your wooly socks we have a right to hate it. If I was to tell you that nobody wanted to hear your opinion one something, to shut the heck up, you wouldn’t appreciate it would you now?

    So don’t tell us to shut up pretty please, because thats just downright rude. We can judge it however we want to.

    Excerpt: “Engine snarling like a hunting panther, the car jolted forward so fast that my body slammed into the black leather seat and my stomach flattened against my spine. “Arg!” I gasped as I fumbled for the brake.”

    Sentences such as this one make me laugh. What poor writing!
    The first page of the excerpt couldn’t even hold my attention.
    The books pretty much teach teenagers to confuse love with infatuation, especially physical–if not downright sexual–infatuation. Sure, agree to marry a guy–and at such a young age–who thinks you need permission from him to see one of your friends. That’s brilliant.

    You can like the series if you want…but why would you? Do people see the same things I am but just don’t care because they like shallow, dramatic teenage romance that makes people like me roll my eyes?

    Brinna, you DID make some good points, and not all the 95 reasons this site provided were well-constructed, or even real reasons to not read the series. Some weren’t even true (such as, teenage girls don’t fall in love instantly?!). But overall, I think the points are very valid.

    I am a man. Or a boy. 19 years old, you decide. Anyway, I hated Twilight before I read it. I bought it for laughs, knowing all of the criticisms of the book. The plot and purple prose were everything I expected. Every time the book described their undying love for each other, I felt like I was reading a 14 year old girl’s diary about her newest boyfriend. The vampire part was just an excuse to validate it for all eternity. It was all a disgusting co-dependent fantasy about the perfect man.

    But somehow, I still enjoyed the book. Go figure.

    I LOVE Twilight. Just because you read a book does not mean you worship it. Not only do I think you’re stupid and pathetic but the fact that you and other sad, pathetic and lifeless people actually made 95 “reasons” you hate Twilight is just sad. This is more of 5 reasons, 10 at the most. You are just repeating yourself. Obviously, you are most likely someone who is uneducated and are angry because it’s not sad and depressing like Harry Potter. The comment you made about fancy adjectives probably made you angry because you had to read the entire book with a dictionary sitting right next to you. And honestly, you can’t judge a series without reading the entire thing, that’s just being plain ignorant. Also, this book probably also pisses you and the other 30 year old obese friendless people off is because unlike any of you, Bella and the rest of us in the human race actually have friends and family who love and care about us. Edward is not a pedophile because obviously, if you read as many vampire books as you say you do, you’d most likely realize that in quite a few there’s tons of love in there, and they’re centuries old. Also, none of us care about what you find kinky, with that whole bit about the Twilight series being complete trash because there’s no real sex. Why do you think so many women love it? It shows what men SHOULD be like. Not at all like the world we have today, where people go around getting knocked up at 12 and getting STDs from guy or girl who’s name they can’t even remember, probably like you did in your younger years. And no, Jacob isn’t a pedophile because he’s not in love with Renesmee, he’s her best friend. I mean, like you, the following is my opinion, but I would absolutely LOVE to have a guy that doesn’t want anything bad to happen to me and would anything for me, no matter what it is, and no mater what time or reason. Besides, just because somebody somewhere said this is what a vampire is, it doesn’t mean it is. It’s an opinion, and Stephenie Meyer projected her own. Besides, if you’re actually going to have the nerve to criticize Twilight, grow some balls and criticize Romeo & Juliet, seeing as it’s the same concept of teenage love. Oh, and on last thing: if you’re actually stupid enough to say Renesmee isn’t a real name because it’s combined, it’s common to do that, something only an educated person would know. If you think that name is stupid, you prbably think names such as Sheneequah, Shenaynay, Bonquiqui, LaFonda, Latifah, or Shontelle are stupid.

    okay, so this was entertaining and mind numbing. the list was the entertaing part. the fangirls and guys were the mind-numbing part. ha ha, some of the defence reasons were just retarded. for example: the response to bella not having a mind was “everyone has a mind”. that should be enough for you. but just in case “her future IS edward”. ahem, you’re only serving to prove her/their points. it’s truly and wholesomely best if you just do not comment this or visit this page. most, if not all of these points are true. some are just fun little tidbits that have less to do with the book, but never-the-less, she/they are right. this is a sad, unoriginal, plotless, insult to the male and female genders, literature, and, in a weird way, paedophiles. and let’s not forget that it underminds the whole “think for yourself” way of life.

    Thank you for your time. Yours truly,

    “What is Bella’s favorite colour? Blue, becuase Edward said so.”
    That really made me laugh because it’s true. cara, you are awesome.

    And, as for overly obsessed, Edward loving, twilight worshipping, teenage fan girls, they just really make me laugh because some of them are just really pathitic. Telling them to get a life is way too easy. I think the correct term would be to become a vampire, marry fictional Edward, annoy freaky-ass Italian vampires and have a lot of sex while your daughter is in the other room sleeping. That’ll really make your day. Haha

    And has anyone noticed that Bella doesn’t actually fight during the entire series either? Is she that pathetic at everything? I mean, really. I feel sorry for people who haven’t read any REAL vampire books. Vampire Diaries is awesome, so is Blue Boods.

    The people I loved the most in Twilight were Jacob, for anoying the crap out of Edward, Emmette, for anoying the crap out of Edward, and the Volturi, for almost killing Edward. Its a shame that they didn’t, maybe then Bella would get a personality.

    And also, yes, Shaneequah is a stupid name. whahaha.

    I love twilight. It wasn’t what i expected which is why i like it. During twilight, stephenie has broken all the rules when it comes to vampires. You said that stephenie said that vamps can’t have children, that’s true. None of the Cullen women, like, Rosalie, Alice or Esme can have children because their vampires. Their bodies can’t change in order to have children. Bella’s body CAN change, she’s still human.
    Since you criticise stephenie so harshly, i think that YOU should write a book and then publish it on the internet.

    Reasons I hate Twilight-
    When I read Twilight, I swear half of my brain melted.
    Edward Cullen looks like my ass, but my ass doesnt have fleas.
    Look at Bella’s new haircut, instead of being with Edward, I guess she was trying to have matching hair.
    I wonder how Edward lovers read the book, they are obviously blind to think Edward is attractive.
    There are too many reasons to write.

    By the way, if you are a twilight fan I am going to come to your door and beat you up with the hardcover edition of all four Twilight books… but dont worry since you have all those “magical vampire powers” from reading the book. Oh, and you can have all four of mine, I don’t want them. You can have my contacts too, you need them WAY more then I do if you think Edward is cute. Edward doesn’t need “powers” all he needs is his ugly face and bug infested hair to kill someone.

    Posted July 10, 2009 at 3:38 am

    haha, funny :) The reason why the series are so popular is because Edward depicts teenage girls/ females’ (I know someone who is 38 and enjoys reading the series) ultimate fantasy in what they want in a man. They want somebody who is more superior – richer, stronger, smarter.. etc I mean.. when it comes to other things than finding a boyfriend/husband, women DO want equality, but when it comes to finding their man, they prefer someone who is superior. It’s true. I know I’ll get bashed.

    I don’t think the series should be read by really young girls, because it’s just not right. It’s self-explanatory.

    Most people read it for the storyline. It’s not really about literature – I mean people aren’t doing ’studies’ on it.. it’s just a fictional book right?

    Anyway I know a guy that reads Twilight. He’s my cousin in fact. :)

    Fan girls get a little crazy sometimes.

    Obsessed fan girls go over board and start yelling at random people. I’ll probably get bashed for this comment, too, but, seriously, is it too much to ask that fans stay OFF an I hate twilight site if the are going to get all BLEH! I hate you every time?

    whats wrong with u, twiligt is the best book ever, and edward is so hot, your so jelous

    jk

    No, Twilight is not the best book ever, and no, i’m not a fan thank god.

    I have many reasons why I hate Twilight, and only one reason why I love it, if you noticed somethng, since Twilight became so popular the Jonas Brothers’ popularity seemed to decrease.

    One of the reasons why I hate Twilight, is because it braught us Twilight Fans, which are the ones that braught the low reputtion to the book series.

    I don’t hate Twilight, I hate Twilight Fans. There are a lot of vampire fans that read the books, say “it’s ok, not that bad” and move on reading another vampire books. But Twilight fans call them selfelfs “Vampire lovers” and don’t know anything about vampires.

    Mayers, not the best auhor ever, but not the worst either, but for her age whe should write something better than that. I bet that Amelia Atwater Rohdes probably wrote a better book when she was 13.

    I could go on and on, but I have to go back to write my own vampire books that I starte thinking about before Twilight was even published, and I don’t want to write 500 lines of what we already know, Twilight fans are stupid.

    Posted July 13, 2009 at 2:58 pm

    Okay, well I will probably get bashed for this, but I have a few comments to make. Read the whole thing before you start yelling at me. Well first off, I think that the Twilight Saga is a good series. After reading this list, I do understand that some of these reasons are very well thought out, and do make sense, while others seem to have been just slapped on your list to make it longer.

    The first thing I would like to point out is how people are saying, “we can write this list because if other people have a right to love the books, we have a right to hate it.” I completely agree that you have a right to hate it, but why broadcast a huge list all over the internet? Authors spend much of their time trying to write books and they put a lot of effort into their books, for the benefit of fans. But to write something, put most of your effort into it, and then have people bash it, well that would make you feel bad, wouldn’t it? Obviously Stephenie Meyer realizes that this book will not be liked by everyone, and that’s perfectly normal, but why make her feel worse? Same with musicians; they are not liked by everyone, but when someone criticizes their work publicly, it would give them a glum feeling.

    Another comment I have, is that some people are writing things on here such as ‘Edward is ugly, of course I hate him.” I thought we were on here to criticize the books, not the movie, so rethink what you write before you write it.

    Any of the reasons on the list that say Stephenie Meyer is defying rules by making her vampires sparkle, and not mentioning fangs, is quite dumb. She has her own vision of what vampires are, and who would want to read these books if they had the predictable vampire characters?

    As for saying that Bella’s father always leaves her alone, and that normal fathers don’t do that? Yes, well some actually do. Not all, but there is the occasional father that does, such as mine.

    Stephenie can’t think of original names? When is the last time you have heard Bella, Esme, Rosalie, Jasper, Emmett, Edward, and Carlisle all over the streets? Granted, the humans in the books (such as Mike, Angela, and Jessica) do not have original names, but you cannot sit there and say that none of them are original except for Renesme.

    Also, since when could vampires not get people pregnant? Once again, Stephenie Meyer is shaking it up a little by playing around with what vampires actually are. You cannot blame her for not falling into using the vampire stereotype, can you?

    The last thing I can think of now, is how many of your reasons are stating that Twilight fans are horrid. Once again, we are on this website to talk about the books, not about the fans. Sure they get annoying, but you tell them to stop talking about Twilight, not blame them for the reason you hate the books.

    I cannot think of anything else wrong with this list now, but if I do, I will post another comment.

    I am not trying to bash your list, I am just trying to prove a point that not all of your reasons are worth listing.

    and i think that you are entitled to your own opinion of what a vampire should be, and meyers is too. like if i think vampires are sparkley and dont have fangs and arent as terrible as folklore says, whats it matter? if i think so, fine. if you think they are bloodsucking, fanged, not sparkling, evil creatures, thats fine i dont criticize your opinions

    Wow. There are way too many comments on this post. (My post included.) First off, why do people need a valid reason to hate anything? I hate American Idol winners and to this day, I still don’t know why.

    The comments people made above are all valid (some have VERY good points and kind of made me feel like an ass for not liking Twilight) and everyone needs to chill out. Twilight and New Moon are awful Straight up. I won’t give an opinion on the whole series because I haven’t read it. But what I did read made my head hurt. The books were boring an unoriginal. For the first 5 chapters of Twilight, I enjoyed that. But when the plot didn’t pick up, I got irritated. So I put it down, read some Harry Potter, felt my IQ drop 5 points and started again. It’s no big deal.

    I’m not hating on the fans themselves (though the ones I know ARE insane), but I will just say that I don’t understand the appeal of this book. I just don’t. And if you tried to explain it to me, I still don’t think I would understand. At all.

    By the way, my friend and I are making the Light Yagami reason into a t-shirt.

    okay first of all twilight is a pretty good book but you dont have to like it! but to me it seems like you really dislike twilight alot! and thats okay but for someone who hates it that much why would you take the time to write 95 reasons why you hate it all you have to say is i dont like twilight or i hate it .. i find this pretty sad for someone to spend there time writing this. i kinda feel bad for you if you have this much time to write this cus you must have read all the books and then write this. i do agree with some of your reasons tho!

    LOL I don’t know why but I’ve had a burning passion to hate this series ever since I recall hearing about it. Too many girls in my high school (last senior year 2008) had loved the series as though it was the new Harry Potter. I mean Harry Potter was a great series in my opinion… but honestly Twilight sounds horrible and there’s been a movie out already…I think it’s just a fad though… like boy bands or something.

    P.S. To those Twilight fans I may have offended… I hate because I can.

  835. Posted July 16, 2009 at 12:47 am

    Honestly, I’m not obsessed but I do have to say, you’ve wasted time writing all of this just to be a b*tch and talk about how you hate something? At least when Twilight fans go online and make fan sites or read the books a billion times or obsess over a character, they’re doing it outta something they love. Not coming online to make a “why I hate Twilight” article.. that’s pretty pathetic. Grow up. “Vampires can’t get people pregnant. SPOILER!”-Hahahah. Let me re-word that for you “VAMPIRE’S DON’T EXIST. ZPO1L3R.” Stupid ass. AGAIN just part of the story SHE MADE. IT’S NOT REAL SO SHUT UP. And another thing, “Stephen King agrees that Stephanie Meyer can’t write ‘worth a darn’.” Um hi, so when did Stephen King become the God of books, idiot? Just cause he says that doesn’t mean crap. He’s just butthurt he’s not in the spotlight anymore :) one more… “Straight men sparkle?” Ha okay, uhh Kids can get a visit from an owl and the owl will give them a letter telling them they’re Wizards? Oh NO! That’s not real either is it?! Oh anddd maybe one day a Hobbit will come to my door and take me to middle earth so I can burn a magical ring with my skitzo friend Gollum. Harry Potter and Lord Of the Rings were both amazing stories as well. There’s stuff in it that’s not real cause it’s a Fantasy book. It’s part of the book. Get a life man let them enjoy the story dang. Twilight obsessed people continue! Ignore the haters. Make your websites cause you’re doing it outta passion while these dumbbells are doing it outta hate. Pft that’s a lot worse. By the way, the books were great. Peaceee

    Hey, I can write too! I’m even better than Stephanie Meyer! I’m 14!!! Maybe I’ll publish a book and dedicate it to Meyer by saying “To Meyer, who showed me that writers, no matter their ability can get published.”

It’s that bad! I have to FORCE MYSELF to read it to the end to know what happen next, and then, like you said, laugh about it…

    Basically, this is what I would add from Edward’s thoughts:

    96. “Bella I love you so much because you smell good”
    97. “Bella I love you so much because you’re squishy”
    98. “Bella I love you so much because you talk like a man (since i’m a girl)”
    99. “Bella thanks for using tampons for me”
    100. And also, when she finds a new, big, fancy word to play with she uses it near ten times on the same page(actually my friend noticed this)
    101. People say that other vampire books are rip-offs of Twilight(not true) Twilight is actually the rip-off
    102. Basically, what Stephanie Meyer is telling us is that she got this sucky idea because she dreamed of a glittering guy named Edward.
    103. It is so realistic that normal people don’t REALIZE that the Cullens are floating white people, oh! and also that they’re anorexic.
    104. Really? Edward likes blood? then why bother covering that up with strawberry shampoo…really…
    105. This is a rip-off of the Nightworld Series written by L.J. Smith in 1998 (I recommend people read it… SUPER good, if you like action, good grammar, thriller, and romance PLUS the book has original names like Rashel and Quinn<<my two fave charcters.^-^ and it’s cheap! The concept is bascially three stories in each book[all revolving around the same concept] and somehow they all connect…)
    106. I can’t believe that Twilight even beat the Night World Series(they just have sucky covers….I have to admit)

    When i started twilight i loved it. I thought there wasnt a book in the world that could top this….so i gave it to my friends..and those friends gave it to other friends…until it turned into a twilight love fest. They talked about it every day of every second..and my hatred of this book slowly came. I then question the plot of this book..and it was a total downer. Bella was AH-NOYING! i wish the bitch died when she fell off the cliff ! and as this hatred started comming i started to love jacob more and more and started likeing edward less and less. he is obssessive and soo melodramatic! this book sucked…but i had to find out what happens and i read every book in the series…so far my favorite couple is nessie and jacob.
    I thought i could never read stephenie meyers books again…but then i stumbled upon “the host”…the beginning was horrible..but as the 100th page passed by..i was hooked… the drama was overwhelming! i had no idea who my favorite character was..or who i wanted to live..or which guy was the greatest..and till this day “The Host” by stephenie meyer is my all time favorite book..i recommend this book to everyone! even those who love and hate twilight..along with this reccomendation i will say that people who love reading as much as i do should read “The Private Series” by kate brian! (deffinatly read this book! i have been stuck on it for years!) the vampire academy series, the house of night series, the A-list series, The gossip girl series, the It girl series, anything by sarah dessen and many more!

    Firstly I love the writer of this list.
    I have not read the book nor seen the film but I hate the thing already as I’m just a poor nightshift worker who gets creeped out by vampire fangirls during the day due to living somewhat nocturnally due to my career. It doesn’t help I have natural fangs (in reality they’re just ever so slightly longer than the teeth next to them and a little pointy, not like stereotypical vampire teeth) combined with a light sensitivity and pale skin from working at night and sleeping most days.

    Why can’t the vampire lovers have been 20 something hotties instead of preteen young teen girls? Sadface.

  851. Posted July 21, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    HEY I admit that twilight those have some flaws but still the series is pretty good even I have to admit!

  852. Posted July 21, 2009 at 1:24 pm

    You know I agree with you 100% These books and the movie even, a total disgrace to the vampire nation! I liked vampires before this teeny bopper phase! My cousin is 13 and her friends and her worship Twilight. I liked vampires growing up too, but at least the books I read were good ones. Anyone remember Christopher Pike’s last vampire series? That is where I started. Before vampires “sparkled” how dumb is that! This author was definitely after the younger audiences, I’m pretty sure, this fad too shall pass.

    And (I do know that a sentence shouldn’t start with “and,” but this is needed) for all of those crazy obsessed Twilight fans out there comparing the Harry Potter series to the snot rag that is Twilight…don’t. J.K. Rowling understands how to grab hold of her readers using correct grammar, sentence structure, and flow…S. Meyers, not so much.

    You know what I have to say? Quit criticizing twilight! If you don’t like it oh well.

    Answers:

    1.) Bella isn’t perfect… she’s clumsy and most girls are. Bella lives in her own world and most girls dont.

    2.)Edward dosnt always catch her. What about Jacob? Forget him too? Yeah well, friends do always catch you when you fall.

    3.) She does to do stuff without Edward. So you are forgetting Jacob! Well, let me tell you that you are wrong!

    4.) She dosnt try to commit it! Get a life! She is cliff-diving FYI! Try it sometime!

    5.)Bella is not Steph! Steph is not Bella.

    6.)The books are well written! Thats why it was made into a movie and plus there making the whole series. So there! Plus Twilight has a million fans!

    7.)What Vampire rules? Trying to scare little kids now right? Well I never liked Dracula anyways.. he was lame!

    8.) Same as 7

    9.) Sorry. And so what if they like Alice or Rosalie? Then Jasper and Emmet are for them. Seriously, the book would influence those boys if they read it.

    10.) GIVE JACOB CREDIT TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So JJ Twilight lover (ME) will be back! Dont worry

    13.) This is in Bella’s point of view. she dosnt think she’s special. She’s got low self-esteem. look it up

    14.) When Bellas a vampire she takes a huge step up. edward would’ve killed Renesme FYI. Bella took control though!

    15.)Guess what?! They dont know each other well. It’d be awkward!

    16.) Guess what? You lack of that!You probably cant read!

    17.) She is a regular whining useless girl then. All girls are like that… but never useless. she cooks for charlie. call that useless?

    Posted July 22, 2009 at 11:13 am

    I’m currently reading the fourth book, but at this point only because I’m curious where the writer is going out of some masochistic desire of my own.

    I find Bella annoying and completely lacking of independent thought, even prior to meeting Edward. While I think the new ideas involving vampires in this series are campy and ridiculous, I do applaud Myers for attempting to be original, or as original as one can get with the vampire concept. Edward is over protective, at times abusive, and for someone who has lived as long as he has, lacks the wisdom that comes with age. The story was not thought out very well and has gaping plot holes that are hard to ignore.

    While reading it I sometimes wish that Buffy or Lestat will pop in and bring depth to the bland plot, but I’m left disappointed that not even my own imagination can brighten such a dreary excuse for story. Teen girls, however, are mostly shallow self absorbed creatures and it doesn’t surprise me that they have taken to this drivel with such ferocity. I hope when they grow up that the sudden reality shock doesn’t hurt them permanently.

    There are lot’s of people who say, if you don’t read it you wont understand it.

    Well, i read it and…. i wasted a good few nights. I found nothing appealing in the series but i have picked up Myer’s new book the Host and the first chapter or so did convince me to give her a second chance. Of course, just now the love of her life has entered the story. This opinion may change very fast.

    I do not hate the series, i just don’t like. I find much more enjoyment reading posts such as this one than i did all the books combined. I think that says something.

    There are lot’s of girls who swoon at the mention of Edward, i am happy to say i am made of sterner stuff. I mean, i have my weak spots for some fictional men but… i suppose i’m different because i’ve read so many other books. I’m not saying illiterate people love Twilight, i’m just saying i have have seen all that already and it’s uninteresting and predictable.

    everyone i know who has read and loved it are either girls who rarely even saw a book before Twilight, or read Nora Robert’s books or similar almost religiously.

    Can i just ask, How many of you people have actually read the twilight saga?
    Twilight is amazing, completely revolutionary.
    How can you say there is a lack of character developement? Have you not read the complete series? Have you not noticed the changed in edward and bella from twilight to breaking dawn?
    You say it is not a vampire novel, Well you have obviously no time to go on stephanie meyers website. I quote ‘I like to say that Twilight is a vampire novel for people who dont like vampires’ Stephanie says.
    FAIL TO YOU, its become obvious by number 25 that you havent read the series, because it does mention fangs!
    You say that the series is boring, the characters dont develope, but it seems to me that you are the one with boring tastes. You dislike the fact that Meyer breaks most vampire rules, that the have no fangs and sparkle, so seen as you do not like change, u are not open to explore other options.

    21. This book contains no real sex, so it’s not really a vampire novel.
    29. It’s predictable, and childish.
    Actually, i think maybe you are the childish one

    “We read the entire series just to laugh at the stupidity of it”
    How sad, really, you must be sone middle aged balding twit.

    39. They use a drug reference in a book written for ten-year-olds

    Oh yes because 10 year olds would be allowed to read books about vampires and skin being ripped open with vampire teeth, yes i see your point idiot.

    43. Stephen King agrees that Stephanie Meyer can’t write ‘worth a darn’.
    44. It’s stupid.
    45. Bella.
    46. Bella is Edward’s beard.
    47. Meyer wrote four books about nothing, really.
    48. Straight men sparkle?
    I think maybe your getting a little desperate on your points now

    “Do any guys actually like Twilight?”
    Yes, 4 of my male friends have all read twilight. I take it you are a guy, a very ignorant one as it seems.

    54. There’s far too little actual conflict in the story. But this probably stems from having a flawless main character.
    Wow, what a typical male comment.

    55. They fall in love way too quickly and it seems fake because no one falls in love instantly, especially teenagers.
    LMFAO, Bella is drawn to edward, part of the way vampires attract prey, therefore spending more time together, falling in love eventually.

    85. Ms. Meyer writes the way I did when I was twelve years old, doodling in my journal.
    Well maybe is your writing was that good a standard when you were twelve, you should release a book about sad smelling widowers writing on the internet about more fortunate books.

    “Martin Luther would not have not have approved if the book was written during his lifetime.”
    How dare you discrace such a name. How exactly would you know that Martin Luther would have disapproved, did you know him? I think not.

    “The book was so bad we wrote 95 reasons why we hate it”
    Yes, 95 reason that were very repetative, very narrow minded and very immature. Your either sad middle aged men with nothing better to do, or sad teenage boys also with nothing better to do.
    Either way, you are obviously of the male species, and say that all women are now blinded by thinking men will be like edward cullen. Well maybe u shud start to adjust to being more like edward, as i dont see u with girlfriends atm.

    Yes u say that twilight fans are sad and will come and attack this piece, well your right.
    One more thing, FAIL.

  869. Anonymous_Girl
    Posted July 29, 2009 at 4:29 am

    LOL I’m a Twilight fan too but I thought some of ur reasons were very funny and valid:

    “If Bella is so ‘plain’, why do so many guys fall for her within the first two chapters?”

    Agreed. That is such a ‘Bollywood’ thing to do :p All the guys falling for the lead female. It’s an insult to those girls who have never been asked out by a single guy all throughout school and college. For a writer who has received such high acclaim, its disappointing to see such cliche’s in Meyer’s protagonist. Bella could have been different.

    Another Meyer logic I don’t seem to understand is that if anyone can become a vampire by simply being bitten by a vampire, how is it possible that all vampires are, more or less, impeccably beautiful? I mean do the person’s features change once they are a vampire? Or is Meyer suggesting that all human beings are beautiful but their attractive sides are accentuated and made more conspicuous by the transformation?

    “Isn’t it convenient that her father always leaves her alone and doesn’t question her? Real parents aren’t that way.”

    Exactly what I was thinking while reading the books…And the way Charlie implements his discipline is pathetic. Meyer is teaching kids the wrong things by making forbidden love look easy.

    “Bella is a useless, whining, doll that suddenly has become the idol for girls everywhere.”

    I couldn’t STAND her in Eclipse. With all that walking along the beach hand in hand with Jacob. They were always touching! You don’t DO that when you know the kid likes you…and you kinda do to. Things just get out of hand that way. And Edward showed WAY to much patience in Eclipse. Bella doesn’t deserve it. And OH yeh…if Bella’s true love was Edward then why does she whine so much about getting married to him? Dumb dumb dumb

    “People say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter. Guess what? WRONG.”

    Amen, girl!

    “You don’t have to describe the character every two pages, we know all about Edward’s ‘perfectly toned chest’ the fourth time she mentions it.”

    Lol exactly. She has to make the books longer one way or another. So she chose to throw in unnecessary to catalyse that process.

    “Her vampires sparkle. Enough said.”

    LMAO. I was so disspointed when I read that. I liked it the traditional way.

    “There is too much face touching”

    “Stephanie Meyer creates some interesting characters ie: Jasper and Alice. She then ignores them, and gives them no development”

    She focuses too much on Bella. And because everybody is so perfect to begin with she doesn’t improve them.

    “Do any guys actually like Twilight?”

    NO. I don’t see why they would. And I prefer it this way.

    “It’s offensive to the entire human race, both male and female.”

    Mhmm. Too much power and importance given to the male. And the whole beautiful thing.

    I kind of don’t agree with your evaluation of Jacob though. Jacob was supposed to be mature for his age. But he practically pounced at every opportunity he got to snog Bella…You may argue that Bella DID kind of lead him on but still, we can’t excuse him for not failing to exercise his self-discipline on so many occasions.

    Also, why ruin such a great piece of criticism with remarks like these?:

    # It’s stupid.
    # Bella.
    # Bella is Edward’s beard.
    # Meyer wrote four books about nothing, really.

    Bella is Edward’s beard? :P I hope you wrote that just to be funny. Coz that’s all it was.

    “Being clumsy is not a flaw if Edward always catches her.”

    That made no sense. :)

    To Elizabeth and Georgia… Twilight is not revolutionary. It didn’t do anything new or change anything. It’s just about the same collection of ideas written by somebody with the grammer capabilities of a 12 year old.

    Bella is still the same whiny girl she was in Twilight as she is in Breaking Dawn. I don’t see any character development there.

    By the way, quoting Stephanie Myer doesn’t give you any credibility. Just because she says its a vampire novel for people who don’t like vampires doesn’t mean it is. In fact I’d say it’s a novel for people who don’t read good vampire novels.

    Also, the book is read by ten-year olds. I’d say that’s where the bulk of the fans come from, I guess they can relate to the writing style.

    Oh yes another addition is that if vampires are genetic dead-ends then how did Bella fall pregnant? Bella’s pregnancy means Edward’s reproductive organs are still active, but the female vampires’ organs aren’t. Sexist much? If half-vampires can exist then so should full-vampire offspring. According to Carlisle vampires have 25 chromosomes so technically they arent so genetically dead are they?

    This is why the Twilight saga is so predictable. Because there is no logic behind the things that happen! And although Harry Potter seems even more bizarre, its story-line is heaps more layered, intricate and complex than Twilight’s. And hence its popular amongst a much wider audience.

    I really liked this, I am kind of enjoying the book though, I am 15 and I agree on all of your points, I am reading it so I can compare the book and the movie(which I HATED by the way). My friend has a saying- \”why would you go to high school, then come home and read about high school?\” I couldn\’t agree more! I go to school, I live the drama, I don\’t want to read a book about the drama i basically just lived, it doesn\’t make sense.
    THANK YOU for making it clear that people are entitled to their own opinions, it seems that Twilight lovers don\’t realize that, I can\’t so much as say I hate one sentence in that book without getting chewed out by my sister or friends because it\’s \”mean\”
    my friend said this on facebook because she took offense to a post I posted:
    \”i dont like twilight haters! get over it people! people like different things and always will so leave us be!\”
    I never said she couldn\’t like it, I don\’t undersand how this is defending her though…

    I’m one of the people who enjoyed the series but I’m not obsessed with it. I agree and disagree with some points listed above; however #61-63 are ridiculous. No one acquires vampire powers from reading a book. No one should be that obsessed and no, Edward Cullen does not exist. Jacob Black is NOT a real person and they’ll never be real. Jacob can and never will imprint on you and Edward will never come for you cause they don’t exist. So girls, get over yourself and face the reality that fictional characters don’t just jump out of books and decide to be your boyfriend. If Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Draco Malfoy, and the Weasley twins can’t do it, neither can Mr. Sparkles.

    u.u sure it’s just a book…a horrible book that made a tons of money of girls who either had bad romances or never had a real one.

    O.o oh yes this book approved of necrophilia…and the ability to make babies with them.

    In short the series proved that fan-fiction can make tons of money if you targeted young females. With hybrid sparkling vampires with no significant flaw like “sunlight” except the thirst. Also it pushed back Harry Potter from coming out, because they rather not have a good book and good movie to be destroyed by an influx of pathetic swooning teenagers.

  883. Posted August 2, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    personally, i LOVE the books. and if you don’t like them, don’t read them…it’s not that hard to figure out! god damn it. i wish that people would stop finding all of the “flaws” in these books and just focus on the good parts. you people obviously have nothing better to do with your time any way…so read something else!

    The books suck. I really, REALLY hated the first one. There was no plot whatsoever and it drove me crazy. But after hearing from friends that it “gets better”, I’m giving the second one a shot. It IS better and go figure, Edward isn’t in this one. I despise Edward’s character. He is horribly boring. Jacob has more personality. Still, I read it quickly because I only skim through when Bella is by herself. She never has any interesting or insightful thoughts whatsoever.

    I’ve compared reading this book to watching a sitcom. It’s dead literature, comparable to mind-numbing television.

    TWILIGHT IS FUGLY.
    the truth is that Stephenie Meyer copied the ideas of L.J. Smith who wrote “Vampire Diaries” which was made 14 YEARS before TWILIGHT. She’s disgraced Anne Rice and all the other vampire authors, plus EDWARD CULLEN is a fictional SUPERHUMAN MORON, girls, so get a LIFE! I’m still a teenager and I’ve read Twilight, and to be honest I wrote like that when I was 09. OMG.

    Reading Twilight was one of the most infuriating experiences of my life.

    The book is cliched, repetative and banal. I couldn’t finish it. And i tried, really tried but i just couldn’t. Just awful. I didn’t think there was worse writing that Da Vinci Code but Twilight is so much worse.

    Worst of all it glorifies the “weak woman rescued from herself by knight in shinning armour” scenario that makes women victims of life rather than the incredible resourcful powerful beings they actually are.

    And just for the record, speaking as a male of the species, i HATED Bella. That whiny self doubt of hers has every quality men avoid! Run from actually. Men want women to love not babysit!

    Twilight is bad writing with great marketing….and that is an evil combination.

    Thanks for the list….

    If you had read the book and understood them you wouldn’t have made such invalid points …

    ie Bella isnt plain, thats the way SHE sees herself (clearly you have not read the books)

    ie Edward does have faults – (again, clearly you have not read the books)

    i could challenge you on many of these but its not worth it, its just your opinion and sorry, but it dosent count for much …

    Its little wonder people are too shy to try and get published, with people like you waiting to pounce on them. Perhaps you might like to try not being so judgemental and rude.

    Go and find something to do that is worth your while instead of behaving like 2 year olds.

    I doubt very much that you could ever write anything worthy of publishing. Because you are obviously unable to understand the books.

All teenager think its love at first sight. Im feel really bad that someone hurt you so badly that you have to attack things that are different.

    I read twilight because my friends told me it was ‘amazing’. Yeah, I fell for it. Sue me. The first book was lame but for some reason I bought all four books (I want my money back!) and read them all more than once. I went to see the movie and thought it was sappy and unrealistic. Shortly after that I came to my senses. Twilight sucks, Harry Potter will always be the best. The end.
    Also, Amen to this list. Especially: “The reason Edward can’t read Bella’s mind is because she doesn’t have one.” LOL
    I was team Jacob from the start, because I hate Edward ’cause he’s a piece of bull crap.
    Sorry to all you fans, go ahead and love it if you want, and don’t get me wrong: I have a very good friend who is a Twilight addict, and I support that. I just don’t think Meyer’s portrayal of some real issues are very accurate, and are quite insulting, such as her views on teenage pregancy, suicide, and parental concern.

    Haha… Twilight. Oh, Twilight. I used to like Twilight… Yes, I thought the first book was very good. But then I went on to the second book… Then the third. I was a freshman in college and it took me three months to finish the fourth one.

    It was terrible, albeit the torture I went through was my own fault. When I liked this book, I was on Team Jacob, haha. I never liked Edward, not one bit. In fact, I hated Bella. But I was ever aware that these were fictional people.

    Currently, I’m obsessed with hating Twilight. It really has no conflict, which bothered me… And I always wondered why this completely average, clumsy girl was so popular with everyone in this small town. If she was so ugly – as she thinks – why were all the guys all over her?

    *Sigh* I don’t hate Twilight just to hate it. I hate it with reasons. And I laughed so hard when I stumbled upon this. You see, my best friend also hates Twilight, and her name is Sarah. My name’s Rebecca… So, that has nothing to do with anything, but it was funny anyway.

    From this book, I have decided – because I’m writing my own book. Four hundred and fifty pages and counting! – that my characters have to be more real… Oh, yeah. It’s about vampires and werewolves, but not vampires vs. werewolves. It’s an original idea, but I bet everyone will say that I’m copying off of Stephenie Meyer… Even though I started writing it two years before I read Twilight…

    I actually have this shirt that says: “Proud Twilight Hater” on the front and “Real Vampires Don’t Sparkle… They Burn” on the back. Then there’s a black sheep on the left sleeve. ‘Cause, you know, I’m the black sheep in the bunch of raving Twilight fans…

    By the by… Robert Pattinson is very unattractive. And I actually liked Kristen Stewart before she became Bella. She was really good in The Messengers.

    But anyway… I guess I’m slightly obsessive with hating Twilight, but at least it gives me the drive to write my book. So I have to thank that horrible piece of fiction for that much! ^^ Huzzah.

    I hate how everyone got sucked into this Twilight fad. First of all, Twilight wasn’t orginally meant for young adults. It was meant for adults, and was supposed to have more sex in it. However, it became popular with the younger generation, so Meyer gayed it up.

    Second, I’ve heard so much, “I didn’t like to read until I read Twilight!” Wtf? Seriously? Go to a freaking library and get a book with some substance. If Twilight is the most amazing book you’ve ever read, you seriously need to get a brain.

    Twilight vs Harry Potter:
    That Edward Cullen guy was in Harry Potter. He’s the one who died in the Goblet of Fire. But Harry Potter wins, hands down.

    And Twilight fans, don’t get offended that MANY people hate Twilight. We don’t hate you just because you have horrible taste in reading material.

    Haha, I’ve never even read Twilight :)

    Please people call down.The person responsible for this list is a f*ck*ng idiot.If you didn’t like Twilight,then why did you take the time to make the stupid list?I admit they were funny,but they were ridiculous.I mean some guys like Twilight,and for some people to say that vampires don’t sparkle,well they don’t but would you like to hear the same thing about vampires,that this and this and so and so.Meyer was only trying to write something else than the same boring stuff.And all of you Harry Potter fans are just freaking jealous because people are moving on with other things rather than staying with same old same old,but good news for you,the same thing will happen to Twilight,not right now,but maybe in a few years.And let people be happy with reading Twilight,in what way does it affect you?huh?You can’t tell someone what to read or what not to read.You’re not their mother.LEAVE THEM ALONE!!!!!!!!One day they’ll get tired of it and moved on,the same as Harry Potter.If you don’t like the book,then forget about it.If you think about it that means you like it,evn if you say no way jose.And in the comment above me,what does Michael Jackson has to do with any if this feud???????
    P.S TWILIGHT ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When i saw action figures, bios of the actors and why they are their roles books, misc books about the movie, and borders and hot topic looked like twilight threw up all over my favorite stores..

    THAT was when it crossed the line.

    Also the fact i couldn’t stop staring at bella’s gaping mouth like she was mentally retarded but then again.. bella is mentally retarded.

    Ugh you people are so freaking clueless. I will make a point that everything you said is wrong.

    1. Bella is not a perfect character I don’t think this Mary Sue person fell in love with a freakin vampire who is 17 forever and sparkles in the sun. Plus the perfect normal character would not have a bestfriend who is a werewolf.

    2. Edward dosen’t always catch her thats why she gets hurt so much in the book(Read the book before you talk bad) and still its a flaw anyway.

    3. Uhh Bella spends like 9 months with out Edward. God you people are stupid.

    4. Bella does not try to committ suicide she was cliffdiving and Jacob was going to go with her but he had some wolf stuff to do.

    5. Stephanie Meyer does not live in Forks, she is not 17, she dosen’t have a vampire boyfriend, she is not a vampire either.

    6. If it is written so badly was is it the New York Times Bestseller, and why has it sold 17 million copies?

    7. The rules aren’t broken. The vampires are still undead, pale, beautiful,strong, and venomous.

    8. Stephanie Meyer made up her own rules, she dosen’t have to follow the others examples.

    9. I’m in love with Edward but I’m more in love with my boyfriend Evan.

    10. How are life threatening sicimstances boring? You have got major brain damage

    11. EDWARD DOES HAVE FLAWS HE’S A KILLER! And he’s overprotective and too catious.

    12. Bella does have a personality. She is grown up for her age, respponsible, funny, sarcastic, lovable, strange,and so much more.

    13. Bella has 0 confidence, she really is pretty she just thinks she’s not.

    14. Edwards a vampire, and um by the way Bella does NOT let Edward control her.

    15. Charlie Bella’s dad does watch her behavior, he HATES Edward and one time he grounded Bella because she was going to vivsit her MOM with Edward.

    16. You probley only read the first page of Twilight, how do you know how if Bella is Developed or not? same with Rosalie Emmett and Jasper they don’t get to tell thier stories until Eclipse.

    17. How is Bella whiny? I mean if you had a cychotic vampire chasing after you, you would be pretty whiny.

    18. Oh yeah cuz geeky flying wizards are all the rage.

    19. Edwards not abusive. If he was Bella would be dead already. And how can Edward be boring he’s a vampire.

    20. How is a love story about vampires and werewolves in a little town called Forks “cliché”.

    21. Uhh HELLO this is a young adult novel not some dirty sex book.

    I could go on allll day but I don’t feel like typing anymore. Anyway I bet you just watched the movie and read like one pge of the book.

    “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

    To Meg:

    Thank you for proving all of the above points, like the horrible grammar in the like.

    Bella is a flat character, which is extremely bad for a main focus of several novels. The characteristics are too stereotypical to count for a personality. It’s like Ms. Meyer went down a teenager checklist of traits. The Mary Sue reference has nothing to do with who she interacts with, so you’re missing the point. Mary Sue is implying that Bella is too static of a character: unchanging and predictable. There are no conflicting traits and she has a very flexible set of morals.

    Bella only gets seriously injured once and that’s because Edward isn’t there to save her. Her injuries aren’t even the her own fault.

    In the nine months without Edward, she is still completely focused upon him. You’re correct that she does not attempt suicide, but she seems extremely depressed and she takes extreme risks which could easily lead to death, so it appears that it crossed her mind at least once. She heard Edward’s voice every time she did something stupid anyway, which just proves my point: dependent and creepy.

    Yes, we know Stephanie Meyer is not a teenager with a vampire boyfriend, but that’s not the point. Again, you’re off the mark. She is basing the characters and plot so much off her fantasies that in effect Bella is a fictional representation of the author to the point where it’s concerning. When the actor that plays Edward Cullen thinks that the books are a written down version of Meyer’s sexual fantasies you know there’s a problem.

    First of all, to become a New York Bestseller you have to sell a lot of copies, so your pieces of evidence are completely redundant. Also, as stated above, the major fans of this book, primarily preteen to teenage girls, are completely obsessed with the attractiveness of Edward Cullen. Sex sells, as they say. I’ve actually heard stories of men getting dumped because their girlfriends want to find Edward. That, if anything, further proves the point of this book being focused around Meyer’s fantasies. I’m happy you have a boyfriend that you care about, but you’re the exception not the rule.

    Life threatening circumstances can be put into any situation with words. They do not make a story interesting. There are life threatening situations discussed in medical journals, but I doubt that, unless you’re a medical student, you find them interesting. The application of a commonly used plot scenario does not make a good book.

    As previously presented, the fact that Edward is indeed a vampire and thus a killer is a plot point, not a flaw. If he wasn’t a vampire there would even less of a story. The other traits, overt caution and over protectiveness, are a result of being a vampire and a killer. Though they could be considered flaws, these are static flaws. They are stereotypical and thus do not count.

    The listed characteristics that make Bella’s assumed personality are again very stereotypical. Sarcasm is practically a necessity of being a teenager. Bella’s slight ability to be funny is directly tied to her sarcastic nature. Even so, she seems extremely deadpan and thus has no real sense of humor. Responsibility and maturity are almost identical and thus redundant. Strange and lovable are extremely variable and depend on your perception of normalcy. The very fact that there is a vampire involved in this story means that the characters will have a strangeness because it alters the variables and thus the reaction. Also, having low confidence is a common characteristic of being a teenager and does not constitute a personality. Meyer doesn’t even give her a distinct attractive characteristic, deciding to keep her very plain. It’s sticking with the typical, overused forbidden love story.

    She really has no independence from Edward. She needs him for everything. When he leaves her in the second book, she is so devastated that her father, who rarely makes a real appearance involving her personal feelings, asks her if she’s okay and if she can initiate her social life without him. She is sulking in the house for months. Oh, and thank you for stating the extremely obvious fact that Edward is indeed a vampire. I think we know.

    Fathers always hate boyfriends, especially in the beginning. This does not constitute a father that’s in tune with his daughter or a father that questions what her daughter is doing. He doesn’t express any real concern until she’s wallowing in the house all day, something that’s hard to miss. He is completely oblivious to her emotions and her struggles.

    Bella’s past and personality are never developed beyond the bare basics in all four of the novels. She’s flat, unchanging, and with no true uniqueness. There is no real connection with her family and her life before Edward. The story is so focused on their relationship that it loses all of it’s realism to the reader. We know vampires and werewolves aren’t real, but the characters should feel realistic. Rosalie and Emmett are barely touched upon in the later books. The stories are told, but not explored. Jasper is also left undeveloped, though not as much as Rosalie and Emmett. If you are going to make a major character, they have to have more of a purpose and more of a life then what is imperative to the plot. Otherwise, they seem pointless or the lack of information becomes a major distraction.

    I don’t know if I should respond to this one because you just completely contradicted yourself about Bella’s whining. You ask how she can be considered whiny, and then justify and explain why she’s whiny. Make up your mind. Yes, I admit that being stalked by a vampire that actually intends to kill would put a slight damper on my day, but she becomes obnoxious to the point where it irritates the reader, not her fellow characters. If your main character is supposed to be who we’re rooting for, then she shouldn’t be constantly obnoxious and childish. Note that this contradicts her supposed maturity. If her whiny behavior dominates the book’s conversation, then she’s not mature.

    First, they said border-line abusive. Second, not all abuse is physical. Edward emotionally and mentally abuses Bella. This is related to her complete reliance on him. His over protective nature resulting from his vampire blood teaches Bella not to trust in herself, but to trust in him instead. This a major form of emotional abuse and can cripple a person’s confidence and independence.

    A love story about vampires and werewolves in a little town is cliché because it’s a love story about vampires and werewolves in a little town. It’s a very basic, predictable twist on forbidden love and blood feuds. Think Romeo and Juliet, but much worse. The little town scenario is so overused it has been rendered completely meaningless. These novels are just generic copies of old plot lines.

    If this is a young adult novel, then why does it resemble a sexual fantasy almost to the letter. My thirteen-year-old sister, who is helping me write this, caught a great deal of sexual references and adult themes without my assistance. The books make people, including Robert Pattinson, uncomfortable. It’s actually completely inappropriate for young adults as it seems to sponsor creeping into a girl’s room and watching her sleep, emotional abuse, pedophilia, and other behaviors that are generally frowned upon. As this is quite apparently Meyer’s sexual fantasy, these young adults become overwhelmed by the raw emotion of a lust driven story, especially seeing that there is no true connection beyond physical characteristics between Bella and Edward that is mentioned. Young adults, for whom these novels are supposedly written, are still exploring their notions of the world. Not only does this imply that looks are everything in a relationship, but citing lust as the cornerstone of a “true love” relationship is so damaging to the true meaning of love that it causes these girls to become completely obsessed with Edward because, as he is fictional, he would be their only chance at what is implied to be true love in the novels.

    We had to save this one for the end. “Geeky flying wizards” have been far more popular for far longer. These books have complicated plot lines and three dimensional characters. The people feel real, despite the wizardry aspect. In comparison Twilight is so simplistic that it provides no real mental stimulus. Harry Potter books appeal to a much wider age range, which helps to explain why they can take the time to make an excellent movie without worrying about losing the interest of the screaming preteen girls that Twilight needs to survive.

    Lastly, we took the time to respond to your post because, not only do we blatantly disagree with you, but you seem to miss the point of opinions and literary criticism. You seem so proud that you’ve read the books, yet you demonstrate no understanding of the beauty of what literature actually is. Literature is based on opinions. You are welcome to yours and I am allowed mine. It is what makes literature fascinating. However, lashing out in disagreement without backing up an argument just hurts your cause. It makes you seem defensive, fueling the idea that the person you are arguing against is, in fact, correct. Literary criticism should be based on what’s in the story as well as opinions.

    We hope that you will use our comments to improve your debate. The goal is not to change opinions but explore and better explain them.

    Sincerely yours,
    Say and Em

    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

    I am sad that it wont let me use correct punctuation.

    To Meg:

    Thank you for proving all of the above points, like the horrible grammar in the like.

    Bella is a flat character, which is extremely bad for a main focus of several novels. The characteristics are too stereotypical to count for a personality. Its like Ms. Meyer went down a teenager checklist of traits. The Mary Sue reference has nothing to do with who she interacts with, so youre missing the point. Mary Sue is implying that Bella is too static of a character: unchanging and predictable. There are no conflicting traits and she has a very flexible set of morals.

    Bella only gets seriously injured once and thats because Edward isnt there to save her. Her injuries arent even the her own fault.

    In the nine months without Edward, she is still completely focused upon him. Youre correct that she does not attempt suicide, but she seems extremely depressed and she takes extreme risks which could easily lead to death, so it appears that it crossed her mind at least once. She heard Edwards voice every time she did something stupid anyway, which just proves my point: dependent and creepy.

    Yes, we know Stephanie Meyer is not a teenager with a vampire boyfriend, but thats not the point. Again, youre off the mark. She is basing the characters and plot so much off her fantasies that in effect Bella is a fictional representation of the author to the point where its concerning. When the actor that plays Edward Cullen thinks that the books are a written down version of Meyers sexual fantasies you know theres a problem.

    First of all, to become a New York Bestseller you have to sell a lot of copies, so your pieces of evidence are completely redundant. Also, as stated above, the major fans of this book, primarily preteen to teenage girls, are completely obsessed with the attractiveness of Edward Cullen. Sex sells, as they say. Ive actually heard stories of men getting dumped because their girlfriends want to find Edward. That, if anything, further proves the point of this book being focused around Meyers fantasies. Im happy you have a boyfriend that you care about, but youre the exception not the rule.

    Life threatening circumstances can be put into any situation with words. They do not make a story interesting. There are life threatening situations discussed in medical journals, but I doubt that, unless youre a medical student, you find them interesting. The application of a commonly used plot scenario does not make a good book.

    As previously presented, the fact that Edward is indeed a vampire and thus a killer is a plot point, not a flaw. If he wasnt a vampire there would even less of a story. The other traits, overt caution and over protectiveness, are a result of being a vampire and a killer. Though they could be considered flaws, these are static flaws. They are stereotypical and thus do not count.

    The listed characteristics that make Bellas assumed personality are again very stereotypical. Sarcasm is practically a necessity of being a teenager. Bellas slight ability to be funny is directly tied to her sarcastic nature. Even so, she seems extremely deadpan and thus has no real sense of humor. Responsibility and maturity are almost identical and thus redundant. Strange and lovable are extremely variable and depend on your perception of normalcy. The very fact that there is a vampire involved in this story means that the characters will have a strangeness because it alters the variables and thus the reaction. Also, having low confidence is a common characteristic of being a teenager and does not constitute a personality. Meyer doesnt even give her a distinct attractive characteristic, deciding to keep her very plain. Its sticking with the typical, overused forbidden love story.

    She really has no independence from Edward. She needs him for everything. When he leaves her in the second book, she is so devastated that her father, who rarely makes a real appearance involving her personal feelings, asks her if shes okay and if she can initiate her social life without him. She is sulking in the house for months. Oh, and thank you for stating the extremely obvious fact that Edward is indeed a vampire. I think we know.

    Fathers always hate boyfriends, especially in the beginning. This does not constitute a father thats in tune with his daughter or a father that questions what her daughter is doing. He doesnt express any real concern until shes wallowing in the house all day, something thats hard to miss. He is completely oblivious to her emotions and her struggles.

    Bellas past and personality are never developed beyond the bare basics in all four of the novels. Shes flat, unchanging, and with no true uniqueness. There is no real connection with her family and her life before Edward. The story is so focused on their relationship that it loses all of its realism to the reader. We know vampires and werewolves arent real, but the characters should feel realistic. Rosalie and Emmett are barely touched upon in the later books. The stories are told, but not explored. Jasper is also left undeveloped, though not as much as Rosalie and Emmett. If you are going to make a major character, they have to have more of a purpose and more of a life then what is imperative to the plot. Otherwise, they seem pointless or the lack of information becomes a major distraction.

    I dont know if I should respond to this one because you just completely contradicted yourself about Bellas whining. You ask how she can be considered whiny, and then justify and explain why shes whiny. Make up your mind. Yes, I admit that being stalked by a vampire that actually intends to kill would put a slight damper on my day, but she becomes obnoxious to the point where it irritates the reader, not her fellow characters. If your main character is supposed to be who were rooting for, then she shouldnt be constantly obnoxious and childish. Note that this contradicts her supposed maturity. If her whiny behavior dominates the books conversation, then shes not mature.

    First, they said border-line abusive. Second, not all abuse is physical. Edward emotionally and mentally abuses Bella. This is related to her complete reliance on him. His over protective nature resulting from his vampire blood teaches Bella not to trust in herself, but to trust in him instead. This a major form of emotional abuse and can cripple a persons confidence and independence.

    A love story about vampires and werewolves in a little town is cliché because its a love story about vampires and werewolves in a little town. It\’s a very basic, predictable twist on forbidden love and blood feuds. Think Romeo and Juliet, but much worse. The little town scenario is so overused it has been rendered completely meaningless. These novels are just generic copies of old plot lines.

    If this is a young adult novel, then why does it resemble a sexual fantasy almost to the letter. My thirteen-year-old sister, who is helping me write this, caught a great deal of sexual references and adult themes without my assistance. The books make people, including Robert Pattinson, uncomfortable. Its actually completely inappropriate for young adults as it seems to sponsor creeping into a girls room and watching her sleep, emotional abuse, pedophilia, and other behaviors that are generally frowned upon. As this is quite apparently Meyers sexual fantasy, these young adults become overwhelmed by the raw emotion of a lust driven story, especially seeing that there is no true connection beyond physical characteristics between Bella and Edward that is mentioned. Young adults, for whom these novels are supposedly written, are still exploring their notions of the world. Not only does this imply that looks are everything in a relationship, but citing lust as the cornerstone of a true love relationship is so damaging to the true meaning of love that it causes these girls to become completely obsessed with Edward because, as he is fictional, he would be their only chance at what is implied to be true love in the novels.

    We had to save this one for the end. Geeky flying wizards have been far more popular for far longer. These books have complicated plot lines and three dimensional characters. The people feel real, despite the wizardry aspect. In comparison Twilight is so simplistic that it provides no real mental stimulus. Harry Potter books appeal to a much wider age range, which helps to explain why they can take the time to make an excellent movie without worrying about losing the interest of the screaming preteen girls that Twilight needs to survive. Also, why does Twilight need to be constantly shoved in our face? Harry Potter and his so called geeky flying wizards do not need to be present in every single store to make money.

    Lastly, we took the time to respond to your post because, not only do we blatantly disagree with you, but you seem to miss the point of opinions and literary criticism. You seem so proud that youve read the books, yet you demonstrate no understanding of the beauty of what literature actually is. Literature is based on opinions.

    While I can see the point of and agree with many comments posted here, I just feel compelled to explain why the series appealed to me; maybe it would make some of the “haters” understand the attraction this series has for some of us:

    I understand what it feels like to be obsessive about another person and know that is crazy to feel that way but be powerless to stop how you feel. The series brought back some memories from many years ago…..and that was pretty awesome-also being torn between more than one person…..
    that sucks

    I can relate to instant attraction and intense chemistry and how when that happens for a person it can rule your every thought and action…..if you are ever blessed enough to find someone who you love beyond reason, can’t imagine living without….. then this series will click for you

    Above all else for me, it was the idea of having someone love you so completely and selflessly when you feel unworthy
    because you don’t see enough in yourself to believe someone else could feel that way about you……and finally there is the belief that some people come into our lives and we become the best versions of ourselves only when we are with them………..

    So, bash away; I am flawed, weak, incomplete, codependent woman who struggles with self esteem issues and I bet there are a lot more of us in the world than those who sit up on their high horses judging and berating others for things that they like or love………….

    You’re so funny and so right. I actually do like Twilight, but I agree with you. Thank God, I don’t take that these books seriously. These books are meant for pre-teens It’s okay when you’re young and “Edward” could be your boyfriend when you’re 12 years old. Older teenagers and grown women(and some men) should know better than to lose your head over the twilight books. It’s not for real people! I do agree with a lot of folks that feel Edward is a stalker and a total azzhole. In the second book he left her, just bounced on her. What type of b.s. is that?

    Here’s my beef with Twilight: How to do can you fall in love, and know that you are going to stay in love this guy forever? Bella?

    id just like to point out like countless others have i like twilight but im not crazy about it
    i think it would have less people who hate it if those crazy people out there wearnt so crazy
    the bit about the population dying out was hilaciouas
    but the pedophelia part was an exageration if u ask me
    i reakon this is a good book not the best unlike the garth nix books
    and the bit about harrypotter was allright but harry potter was only a fraction better
    but one thing u guys all seem to miss is the bit were alice rps james head off and the fighting and stuff that was awesome
    the book would be good but it would be better as a world wich to set a whole lot of different stories in
    i know two girls at school who are obcessed and they are a litlle weird they havel like these rings with bella and edward kissing
    by the way im a boy so that knbocks out one of ur things
    this list was good but a bit harsh u shouldnt be knocking someones book just beacause a bunch of teens are crazy
    it was hilarious some bits though

    Good list.. if you were to read Twilight, why not read Harry Potter instead, or Eragon, or the Lord of the Rings, or a Song of Ice and Fire, maybe even the Chronicles of Narnia (that is if you are christian, or can ignore the christian implications without annoyance). What I mean is twilight isn’t well written (in fact as a writer I think that it’s quite horribly written) and isn’t a great story, so why not switch to something that’s at least one of those things, or both (the Lord of the Rings). I do get that tweens (that is 10 through 13 year olds) might have trouble reading tLotR, but still Harry Potter and Eragon and even the Hobbit are pretty easy to read.

    As a side note, has anybody else noticed that all modern high fantasy is about teenagers or children. seriously, Froto was over fourty if I recall correctly and so was Bilbo in the Hobbit, and those were some of the most successful high fantasy books to date, why not go that way.

    P.S. I have not read all of the Twilight books, or even finished the first, I had to stop because just reading it made my writing emotionless and dry.

    55.They fall in love way too quickly and it seems fake because no one falls in love instantly, especially teenagers.

    Not exactly true… It seems that all teenagers around this age group fall in ‘love’ instantly only to break-up moths later…

    LoL at 18…

    Stephen King wrote ‘Shawshank Redemption’. Stephen King knows twists and plot structure. Stephen King can create round characters. In 200 years odds are that people will still be reading S.K. Take not Meyer…

    F-K all of you who defend these books. Trust me… You will regret tring to be Bella, as odds are that you will end up with an abusive, overly protective husband.

    I just read that list, and most of those opinions are silly. I really enjoyed reading the Twilight Seris and have now read it twice. But i think it is just personal opionon of whether you like vampire books or not, i like some Ann Rice books but her’s get very repetative over a time and are boring. this book appeals to all the girls out there who don’t see themselves as popular/pretty/smart. It is just a way to escape everyday life, which is what i believe a book to be.

    Why are you guys making such a big deal out of this? It’s just a book, people can have different opinions about it.

    In my opinion I think the book should have stopped around the second book. It’s like stretching out a gum, the gum is already thin enough, and the more you stretch it a hole would appear in the middle. That’s what’s happening to the Twilight Series.

    People have the freedom of thoughts. Just because YOU (The fans) like it doesn’t mean you should start going insane just because others don’t.

    The idea of bieng rescued by a hot guy in your entire life must be the the only reason they life, which is a pointless life indeed.

    (T) Dude you are so right no character development, and nothing’s original except for perhaps that they dont burn in the sun, the SPARKLE FOR F***S SAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are also no shocking twists its like when someone’s hooked up to a heart rate moniter all flat with the very occasional mole hill like bump
    you want vampires that are cool, Read the “House of Night Series” these are original and have no vampire werewolf warefare!!!!
    (K) Also read the vampire beach novels for an easy but GOOD AND ORIGINAL!!!!!!

    Posted August 26, 2009 at 8:58 am

    I agree with most of the things that you listed. I just want to point out something about Meyer projecting herself as Bella. Every writer does that to some extend, even unconsciously. They put something from their own life, or dreams or personality in their characters. I remember reading, that the main character in the Shining by Stephen King was influenced by his own life at that point. But he realized that later. The sad thing is, that Meyer has nothing interesting to put into her character, which leads to interesting conclusions..

    I have a friend, who has never heard of Twilight, really. He just doesn’t have much time for trends and things like that. He is lucky. When I wanted to explain to him about the Twilight books he simply said “Well OK, but I haven’t heard about that”. That made me think, that all this hype is created not only by the fans, but by the people, who don’t like the books.
    There is profanity everywhere – movies, music, yes even books. There are tons of bad literature out there. My point is – people pay way too much attention on those mediocre books. If there is less attention, there is less irritation. leave twilight fans to obsess over the story, and after awhile it will all be forgotten. My opinion – too much talking about the books – no matter in positive or negative light, makes them more popular.

    P.S. I apologize for any language mistakes. English is not my first language.

    I saw i made a mistake, for which I apologize – i didn’t want to say Profanity, but I meant something with less intellectual content. I apologize again – my English is to blame.

    3.if all she wants is attention then why are you giving it to her
    4.sure it is you proved it along with everyone else who posted a comment

    9.why would anyone be jealous of a book that is so stupid and… less than well made is how i’ll put it
