Rephaim Anffinson Twilight sucks I hated the series I' m not a Twihard I'm a Twilight hater and proud of it, .. shit) parts of this ramble may be found in my reviews of Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.
Not to mention that the dialogues between the characters were atrocious.
You know what also surprises me, though? When I read reviews of people who read tons of books and are really good in English and stuff and they say these books are well written. It baffles me. Bella Swan is probably the character I hate the most of all the books I read.
I hate her with a fury passion.
Most parents don't allow their year-old daughters to dress in sexy outfits. They recognize that there's a gulf between the pre-pubescent kid's desire to be a player in our sex-drenched popular culture and an actual understanding of what the come-hither look means. It's why the images of miniature beauty contestants are so horrifying.
Why would you allow, even encourage, your child to play that kind of grown-up game? I'm using "10 years old" as shorthand for "too young. When is it OK to read "Twilight"?
When you can't stop thinking about sex. When the idea of romance produces a physical reaction in your body.
When a story of a caress withheld for hundreds of pages leaves you breathless and weak-kneed -- not bored and skimming for the next action scene. In other words, "Twilight" is an entertaining read for people from puberty to death.
But emphatically not before puberty. You might argue that kids are very good at ignoring what they're not ready for.
When you ask year-olds what they like about the series, they'll generally mention anything but the romance see comments from kids below. However, you can't pretend that something isn't worming its way in there. I was once driving a carpool with three 7-year-old boys in the back seat, and we pulled up at a light next to an immense billboard showing a woman dressed in skimpy black lace, perched on a red velvet throne and restraining a Doberman pinscher on a choke chain.
There's always going to be a lot of light in my stories. The dream was about a human girl, and a vampire who was in love with her but thirsted for her blood.
Based on this dream, Meyer wrote the transcript of what is now chapter 13 of the book. Following the success of Twilight , Meyer expanded the story into a series with three more books: New Moon , Eclipse , and Breaking Dawn In its first week after publication, the first sequel, New Moon , debuted at 5 on the New York Times Best Seller List for Children's Chapter Books, and in its second week rose to the 1 position, where it remained for the next eleven weeks.
In total, it spent over 50 weeks on the list. She stated that Twilight was the only book that she planned to rewrite from Edward's perspective. Meyer has since put these twelve chapters on her website so that her fans could read them for free,  but has put the project on hold indefinitely due to her feelings about the situation. She stated, If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story.
In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely. The reimagined novel has a more conclusive ending, seemingly precluding its continuation through the remaining three Twilight novels. While the books have become immensely popular, they have also generated much controversy.
Positive reception Twilight has gathered acclaim for its popularity with its target readers. The Times lauded it for capturing "perfectly the teenage feeling of sexual tension and alienation.
There's no literary term for the quality Twilight and Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings share, but you know it when you see it: their worlds have a freestanding internal integrity that makes you feel as if you should be able to download real estate there. Rowling and Harry Potter.
Rowling; that's a phenomenon that's not gonna happen again", however noting that "you can compare my fans to her fans more easily [than me to her]. I do think that we both have people who are just really really enthusiastic, and will come miles to see you and be involved, and everybody really cares about our characters.
Economically, the town of Forks, Washington , the setting for the Twilight series, has improved due to tourism from fans of the books.
Many have derided the series as poor writing.
While comparing Stephenie Meyer to J. Rowling , Stephen King said, "the real difference [between Rowling and Meyer] is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer, and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good. It's exciting and it's thrilling and it's not particularly threatening because it's not overtly sexual. But they do so by engaging us with complexities of feeling and subtleties of character, expressed in language that rises above banal mediocrity.
Their reward is something more than just an escape into banal mediocrity. We deserve something better to get hooked on. Sci-fi website io9 noted that Bella and Edward's relationship meets all fifteen criteria set by the National Domestic Violence Hotline for being in an abusive relationship. Lee Butler of Young Adult Library Services Association commented how he was unusually hesitant to stock the Twilight books in his library because he felt the books were "robbing [teen girls] of agency and normalizing stalking and abusive behavior.
The Twilight books conflate Bella losing her virginity with the loss of other things, including her sense of self and her very life. Such a high-stakes treatment of abstinence reinforces the idea that Bella is powerless, an object, a fact that is highlighted when we get to the sex scenes in Breaking Dawn. Bella's refusal to abort her fetus, along with her quick marriage and pregnancy, instead underscore the Mormon emphasis on family.
