Was discussing this on bookarmy recently, it was the monthly debate on there....is it a good thing that everyone is reading the same "trashy" novels, rather that than stabbing each other eh? Or is it lowering the standards of children?

For me it's a little bit of both, highly dependent on the reader - some should be aiming higher, for some twilight is absolutely perfect!

i find it ABSOLUTELY perfect, but i like the series
the only "trashy" thing about it would probably be in Breaking Dawn when Bella and Edward were doin it on the island
what lowers the standards of children is the crappy tv shows Nicelodeon and disney keep shitting out every month

My brother read the first 116 pages out of Twilight(He always try's to read at least 100 pages before deciding to give up on it)He gave up on it.He said that it didn't have enough fighting in it.I'll read it once the Vampires start acting like the Vampire from Blade.

i honestly loved the series...thats hard to admit

the idea was so stupid and girlie but god was it done so well!! i fished the whole series in less than a week like four and a half days

the charecters a;ll revolved around each other so well it was just good. she is not the best author yet but she is new and just starting.

and she has done a marvelous job frankly. ppl love twilight so she cant be that bad of an author. steven king is not that great his ides get repative and old and most of his books are just one you decide you really dont feel like reading right now. he can write really well. but that doesnt mean the stories are all good. the mist yummy love it! dark tower quite good the shining... alright not too bad...the secret window...wait am i reading te shining?? thats how it is for me

Stephen King is most definitely right.
awful book. awful movie too. awful everything. could probably be fixed with a major revamp (pun not intended >>.) , like fixing the vampires to actually be vulnerable, make bella less annoying, etc.

no offense to fans.

I believe that Twilight is the worst thing to ever happen to literature since Harry Potter.

...not enough fighting, that's weird.

What does he read? Novelizations of Michael Bay movies?

I feel the same way about twilight and harry potter as books as I do about transformers and gi Joe as movies. It signifies a break down in society. And about Stephen King, did he really trash twilight? He's my favorite author, due to The Dark Tower, and I thought my respect for him couldn't go up any more. Apparently I was wrong.

He didn't trash it. He gave this:

“Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people… The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”

While Stephen may not be a fan of Stephenie’s writing, he understands the appeal of the series.

“People are attracted by the stories, by the pace, and in the case of Stephenie Meyer, it’s very clear that she’s writing to a whole generation of girls and opening up kind of a safe joining of love and sex in those books. It’s exciting and it’s thrilling and it’s not particularly threatening because it’s not overtly sexual.”

He further explains, “A lot of the physical side of it is conveyed in things like, the vampire will touch her forearm or run a hand over skin, and she just flushes all hot and cold. And for girls, that’s a shorthand for all the feelings that they’re not ready to deal with yet.”

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29001524/



I don't see trashing.

Twilight is quite possibly the worst piece of literature I have ever had the misfortune of reading.

I have read fanfics better written then Twilight.

srsly

the movies don't do justice to the books (not that, in my opinion, there is anything to do justice to). the actors act like cardboard, the cinematography's meh, there isn't any chemistry, etc....

imo.
