LOL When I`ve decided to give in buy the saga (just to understand what was all the buzz about)I went to Branes&Noble and started to look in the Fiction section...but I was having trouble so I asked for help. The clerk`s answer: "ohh...actually this book is in the Children`s book section". LOL

Do not relate twilight with Fall Out Boy. Twilight sucks and Fall Out Boy is amazing.

I completely agree with disliking Twillight, i tried to read it but the second book... didn`t finish the 1st chapter. I just didn`t get the joke about it being in the kids section, when in most bookshops, kids and teens are sorta lumped together.

i dont get whats with the huge vampire craze thats goin on at the moment, i bet none of them have read "dracula", "carmilla" or "the vampyre". and have you seen how the people who were in the twilight films have all brought out autobiographies, it makes me sick.

I work at a book store, and i will have to say that is correctly placed. Granted it may not be the best selling placement in the store, but none-the-less correct. A products placement is dictated by the publisher who has an agreement with the author. The twilight saga is dictated to be placed in the Teen/young adult section. In many stores, like the one pictured above, teen is a part of the childrens area.

Do yourselves a favour kids. Forget Twilight pish, read the Grapes of Wrath by Steinbeck. Not as an English project, just as a book. Melted my head. And as a European, it`s hard for me to admit that an American author is the sauce.

Steinbeck. That`s all. Read him.

"I hate twilight. and i don`t care how it sounds, but if you enjoy it, i honestly can`t say you`re someone i`d like to spend time with. i have not met a single twilight-liking person i can get along with. if you enjoy such horrible literature you have failed as a human being."
Hmmm well I`ve read them and its not a great book but it is an easy read

"if you hated the first one so much why did you take the time to read the second one?"

Because I genuinely hoped it would be better, maybe even good enough to redeem SM.

I wasn`t, and it didn`t.

I`ve read the books. They`re alright, the first two atleast. The last two were so laughable I had to stop reading them. But really, the thing that has ruined it for me is the fans. Get over it! Edward will probably never meet you, he is much older than most of the fangirls, and is probably just as a hotheaded jerk as the rest of the celebrities. The books are FICTIONAL! Jeez...and vampires dont sparkle!

Mr_Chubbles: I took the time to read Twilight. I read them with an open mind. I was not at all impressed. I`ve read children`s books that were better written than Twilight. The only reason why they are so popular is because of the "overenthusiastic fangirls" who read them and drool about Jacob and Edward and the other "sparkly" vampires because they`re everything they expect in a guy.

Wrong, Mr. Chubbles. A lot of people who say Twilight sucks (me included) have not only read Twlight, but all of the books. I still say they`re crap. Not the worst thing I`ve read, but still not deserving of the attention they`ve gotten.

Mr Chubbles, I`ve read all four books. I thought I`d have it as a guilty pleasure, seeing as I love cheesy Korean dramas and the like.

They sucked. Stephenie Meyer seems like she`d have an account on deviantART. xx

Anybody who says Twilight is stupid obviously hasn`t read it, and is just saying it to look cool. The books were wonderful (even though the plot was crap) and now the name has been disgraced by overenthusiastic fangirls and hollywood making some idiotic movies of them.

I liked the books because of the WAY they were written out, you know? Like the wording and just the style of the author. Plot-wise, it`s crap. The movies are total crap coz they got an UGLY guy for Edward, Bella can`t act worth poo, and without the words making it good, it drating sucks.

I know I know twilight is TERRIBLE but, I`m still going to see the movies and I still think edward is kind of hot. I`m not going to lie! I like what I like.
Though the last book really and truly was excruciatingly awful, so much that I couldn`t finish it. I have no idea how they are going to make the last movie. Stephanie Meyer needs to re-write that book. HOW the HELL are they going to make a movie about bella getting pregnant with a vicious vampire mutant and then having it 2 weeks later and then shoot edward biting open the sac because nothing else can penetrate vampire flesh.....did that make sense??? good grief.

then Jacob falls in love with bella`s baby

i am not making this sh*t up

I like Ho Hos AND I like homemade chocolate cakes. Does the cake have a deeper, more developed flavor with the subtle undertones of secret ingredients - yes it does! and YES that makes the chocolate cake `better` but it doesn`t make the ho ho any less awesome when I am high...

">>"Twilight sucks" is an opinion. No matter how strongly you believe it, that can`t be a fact because how much it sucks can`t be quantified. Your inability to accept any opinion apart from your own is why you are the cancer that`s killing the internet.

Regardless of your own personal feelings, Twilight DOES suck: the story holds no depth, the characters are shallow, the plot is unoriginal, and the amount of brainpower required to comprehend it falls just above mentally retarded.

Get the drat out, newfag."

so you agree??? he couldnt have put it in a simpler way, why you bitching bitch,

yes is an opinion, but a very good one

I read this before what your were responding to. So, since I have never read the Twilight books, I didn`t know the baby was eating it`s way out. Given the alternate meaning of the phrase "eat out", please try to understand the horror I felt as I read your comment.

`Where else would you put them? Wiccan is a religion, just as much as Christianity or Islam or Judaism or Hindu or any other religion.`

Like I said, piss off the zealots. ie. the christians who believe wicca is evil, and that christianity is the only true religion (closed minded b*stards). We were forbidden to put them under religion. But no one said we couldnt fill up the shelves next to it with them. But too often we found that they were pushed onto the floor or turned upside down and facing back to front.

agreed, harry potter is defiantly better. but still stupid... twilight and harry potter are all on a level of complete retardness. but harry potter is on a higher level then twilight.
the only reason though, that i hate twilight so much is because how mainstream it is. before it would be people who were dark and just liked the idea of a vampire romance. but now its just because one half of the world likes it, so the rest does too.

Breaking Dawn is a pretty f*cked up book for kids to read then. I`m twenty one, and I found Disturbing...
"it was a blood-curdling shriek of agony.The horrifying sound cut off with a gurgle, and her eyes rolled back into her head. Her body twitched, arched in Rosalie`s arms, and then Bella vomited a fountain of blood."

I`ll keep these books in mind for light reading to my children.

Fair enough. I was under the impression that if you are aged under 18, you are legally considered a child (you are in my country anyway - sorry I know that some will be insulted by this because I thought I was a man when I was 16, and I even moved out from my parents home and supported myself - so it`s their classification, not mine). I would be surprised to see anyone who was older than a teenager being interested in Twilight. I guess after that, it`s all subjective......

A lot of people view them as children`s books (they were written for young adults, but quite frankly that`s an insult to everyone`s intelligence). To be properly catagorized, they`d need to be in the trash bin.
