Edward is deliberately described in the book as the most perfect male specimen on Earth and Bella and Edward's relationship deliberately made to be some long-lasting love that you know adults would have, not teens. Also the teens act like adults.

Avoid if you must, due to this it is tolerable to read and easy to get addicted to for some.

You guys talk about Twilight as if it's a second rate vampire fan fic written by some lonely old woman.

the book isn't that bad
the movie i don't even know why i went to watch it i was laughing hysterically through it seriously i couldn't stop it was so gay, there was some girl beside me kept on saying Edward's so hot everytime she did i'd get a new wave of hysteria ( i do not understand all the "Edward marry me", "Edward is hot"and w.e. else ppl make up. LMAO btw the funniest yet is when they say Edward's hot, but not Robert Pattison, makes me go wtf doesn't he play him. c'mon edwards not real :laugh3:)
but i must say even though you didn't watch it the gayest part was when he was supposed to "sparkle" looked like goddamn sweat i left before the end, next day i came to school and one of my classmates told me she cried because it was so good. I was confused like never before :stunned:.

I saw the film and have read all of the books, so I can clearly say that Stephenie Meyer should be ashamed.

Coldplay.Obsessed, did you happen to notice how Robert couldn't understand which accent to speak and ends up using a different one every take?

Basically, the books are tolerable, from a writer's point of view I am inclined to say plot etc are rather boring and typical. The movie, however, is the most unintentionally funny thing I've seen in a while. I could hear fangirls scowl as I laffed at their "dramatic scenes".

She packs quite a deep voice, though. It was cleared up nicely in the film, but in the trailer... Wow. Everytime a girl went on about how great the twilight movie was going to be I'd just speak very low and nasally "I can't stand losing you, Edward"

I have heard both positive and critical reviews of the Twilight series from many people that I know. All I know is that I read The Host and really enjoyed it.

Oh, and almost everyone I talked to agreed that the movie stunk big time.

Most of my family is reading it. The message I'm being told time and time again is that while it's not the best written book in the world, it's virally addictive and impossible to put down.
I might start the first this summer, but I have a feeling I'll be nonplussed by the romance and be so-so on the rest. My mom and sister sort of back that notion.

Everyone I know reads Twilight for the Edward-hotness. I tried to slog through it myself to see what all the fuss was about, but once I got to the part where he started sparkling I just said "yeah no this isn't a good book, sorry masses." I did not find it very "addictive;" actually I thought the writing style was sort of dull. All my freinds think I'm a lesbian now or something because I am not attracted to Edward and his vampiresome zomg hawtness. it's a little icky to not like Twilight at my school, actually...

I do know one poser boy who read it because he's a poser and he says he likes it (and he's straight, so he doesn't really read it for the Edward-hotness :p), but then again, if I haven't mentioned it he's a bit of a poser, so.

Your friends are frickin' insane, if you don't mind me throwing that out there.

Seriously. That's a poor reason for reading any book, particularly those type of books. :blank:

Yeah, it's that whole fangirl frenzy that really turns me off from the book/s, even though I haven't read it/them. That and all the sacriligious comparisons to Harry Potter. The notion I got is that the twilight fanbase consists largely of former HP 'shippers who moved on to a series that had all the romance and squees they loved, minus all the boring stuff.

Again, I'll trying REALLY hard to reserve judgement until I read it myself.
