    I got the impression that they were exaggerating their reaction to Twilight. Forgetting Bella`s name? Counting the number of times Meyer writes "Edward`s perfect face"? Not the best I`ve ever read, but still enjoyable.

    LOL, so true. If you add the literary quality of how many times Meyer uses the word "chagrin" with every time she describes Edward as a "perfect Adonis" and multiply that by the number of ways Bella resembles Meyer herself, you`ll either have a very bad fanfiction, or Twilight. Which, come to thnk of it, are pretty much the same.

    And that was Dr. J`s rant on Twilight. Thank you, and goodnight.

    Does anyone realize that the more you write about twilight, even saying it`s horrible, is not helping anything? Just making more people aware of it. It`s like free publicity (though if anyone doesn`t know about it by now, I doubt they have internet)... just saying, I don`t like Twilight and my best reaction is to ignore it.

    I`m confused as to why when, earlier today (I think) we had the video where a dude rented out a movie theatre just to essentially point his finger and laugh at a bunch of twilight fans, everyone was totally cool with that, but now when there`s an article that`s actually really funny, people are all "oh enough already let`s not make fun of twilight." Huh?

    you can tell that this was obviously written by another intolerant male.

    I`m not personally into twilight but reading this actually makes me want to try it, cause i tend to enjoy things that people like this retard tend to hate.

    So you dehumanise him because he`s male (you referred to him as a male, not as a man) and you call him a retard because you can`t answer his points...and you think he`s the intolerant one?

    You amuse me.

    funny, not so much accurate. just some idiot trying to justify girls` absessions with vampires, and not him. but he was right on a few points, like how edward is like the perfect man who clings to bella just a little too much...

    You girls can wish for an "edward" all you want. But the universal truth is if vampires existed, they wouldn`t sparkle or want to date you, more like bite you and leave your corpse in the woods.

    We can criticize Twilight all we want, and the Twilight fans can be all sparkly adoring all they want, but in the end, it doesn`t matter.

    Stephanie Meyer is just sitting there laughing at all of us from atop her sizeable pile of cash.

    Unless, of course, she`s one of the rare who actually care about her work, in which case Twilight gains a significant amount of respect, but I still won`t like it.

    Intolerant male? Retard?

    Try "grown-up." It doesn`t matter what sex you are, if you have enough brain power to see this poo for what it really is, then you`re gonna form just about the same opinions listed in this article.

    I read three out of four Twilight books out of a combination of peer pressure in high school and the fact that I finished them in two or three days... and it really never gets much different. Unless everything miraculously turns around in the final installment, I`d say this is a pretty accurate article.

    And I even gave it a chance. :-(

    What I don`t get, is how women and girls can read all the indulgent, weak-minded bullpoo that goes on in that novel and still be okay with themselves for liking it?

    And don`t you just feel sad reading it, knowing that the entire series is just an extension of Stephanie Meyer`s sad high school fantasies?

    I read all of the books in the series, and I actually enjoyed them. I`m not afraid to admit that unlike some of the people on here who are probably really do like the books, but not admitting it for sake of trying to look cool. I`m not obsessed over the stories, I just took them for what they were...stories.

    Personally, when I read the books I paid more attention to the world that Stephenie Meyer had built as opposed to the characters within it.

    It`s a simple and sweet world that begs for more exploring. That was my primary reason for carrying on reading the books which is probably why Breaking Dawn was my favorite.

    I used to be a serious Twilight basher, but I can`t say that I am anymore. The over-zelous obsession over the characters is purely fan-driven and we can`t blame the book for that.

    "it is my opinion that people who rant about how they hate twilight are equally as annoying as those who rave about how awesome it is."

    I hear ya. I read the first book, it was nice, quick little read...nothing to write home about but it took me two days to breeze through, no biggie. I`m not a huge fan, but I don`t hate it.

    Why do people want to spend so much of their time on something they hate?

    electromania -> people don`t hate just because it`s bad (there are plenty of bad books out there that people don`t care about). What people hate are the fangirls who insist that it`s the best novel ever written.
    But I agree, unnecessary ranting is annoying no matter which side you are on.

    twilight is horrible.. it`s a tween romance novel with horribly portrayed vampire lore thrown in

    The movie even worse horrrrrible acting, porrly thought-out scenes and some good looking guys thrown in to distract teen girls from actually realizing the movie sucks because they`re too pre-concerned with wondering if they`ll get to see the wolf dude take his shirt off again.
