Have you ever actually tried reading one of those books? If so, you"ll agree with the shirt, too.

I think people are too quick to jump on the bandwagon and bashing the books just because they have become part of a franchise. The books were aimed towards girls and mostly teenage girls, there are a lot of mature, adult women who equally enjoyed reading the books as well as kids. Not everyone who read them is into the `gothic` genre, that is what is good about these books. They are romance based and the books were never truly about the Vampire aspect, they were about the idea of a forbidden romance and the idea of a love which knows no boundaries.
In that way the Twilight series may not be a classic example of well written literature, but then it is meant to be a popular novel series and in my opinion it succeeds as a romance novel.
I consider myself to be fairly well educated and yet I can see that there is some worth in the novels and that ultimately if given the chance they are a good read. Twilight is not for everyone, but don`t ruthlessly criticise those who like it.

RiptheSys7em, do you honestly believe the poo that just spouted from your finger tips? Only goth girls who cut themselves read Twilight. I know plenty of self harmers. None of them would read that poo. And, those "vampires and werewolves" you think are in these books aren`t vampires and werewolves. They`re disco douche bags and shape shifters.

drat it, I`m not even going to bother trying to have an intelligent debate at 3am. Especially about pooty series.

let me just say this: when you read Twilight, you`re reading a woman`s masturbatory aid...

he tshirt made me laugh but i dont understand why people get so worked up about it
no one can physically force you to read the books or watch the films, theres no point complaining and arguing about their popularity, its a writer, targetting a very big audience of teenage girls.
its a drating book, there are a lot of bad books out there, the fact that this one is popular isnt important:S

Here`s the simple reason why I don`t care to read Twilight: It`s a romance novel, and I`m not into romance novels. You can say "Oh, but they`re vampires and werewolves, so that`s different." Nooo... The fact that they`re vampires or werewolves makes no distinct change of the plot whatsoever. You take away the supernatural aspect, and basically you would still have a very bland story about a mysterious boy falling in love with a girl... hell didn`t they do this with Grease something? Anyway, the selling point to the little goth girls is that they`re vampires, and since that piece of the plot is completely mere window dressing and nothing else, then it`s pointless and shouldn`t be considered for the integrity of the series. Plus, the woman is a Mormon who is feeding her beliefs onto a bunch of confused teenage girls who cut themselves and wear a lot of black makeup...

dance4life: Well said.

I refuse to read Twilight not because of `how stupid it is` etc.. but because, while fantasy, they took a long-time established idea (Vampires) and twisted it into something it isn`t or shouldn`t be. I won`t watch `realistic` movies that do the same ill-representation, either. Like 21? They were all non-white kids, and for that reason, I lose respect for the entertainment.

She made a killing, and some people like it, but it`s not the vampires I know and love so I won`t bother.

"I am highly intelligent, tried reading twilight (borrowed from a more stupid friend of mine...)to see what the fuss was about. hated it from the first paragraph, gave it back to my friend."
i`m an english major, am friends with a lot of other english majors, and am close with some of my PHD degreed teachers. and many of them have read all 4 books. some loved them, some didn`t. who cares? obviously the author is a lot smarter than most of us since she`s made her fame and riches off the things. i don`t love or hate the books. but why get so worked up over it? They`re books and movies. stop thinking you`re superior for reading what you consider to be "real literature". at least people are reading. you`re probably the same people who brag about reading shakespeare and not realize that in his time many of the "intellectuals", such as yourselves, considered him vulgar and beneath them. stop bitching, if you don`t like the books, don`t read them.

"the only thing worse than a hardcore twilight fan...someone who thinks they`re incredibly intelligent and superior for not reading twilight."

What the hell, the t-shirt just says the truth about the book quality-wise: it is crappily written. How`s that thinking you are superior?

"Anyone wants to watch a rather "fresh" take on a vampire film, give "let the right one in" a try."

Seen it!

Everyone I know hates it (mainly because subtitles make them emotionally implode with the inconvenience of it), but I actually thought it was pretty good.

If not a little bit insane - but all the best films usually are...

With regards to the t-shirt, I agree with dance4life. She looks like a smug, pretentious little cowhand to me.

... No, I don`t read the stupid books.

If you don`t get the reference, you`ve likely never known what a vampire is.

And no, Twilight does not count for the multiple obvious reasons.

This makes me happy...

Not the shirt.
Not the bewbs.

The fact that people are reading. I don`t really care if you read high literature or junk novellas. Twilight has its place functioning in sort of the way comic books, OSC, and Pratchett did for me as a kid.

Just keep it off the personal attacks for the author. Make the criticisms for the work, not the person behind it. Fact is, they`ve made money, they`ve done something creative, and they`ve succeeded where the (never done) Jacks and (you don`t say) Dicks haven`t.

"it definitely qualifies it as a properly written book."

No. No it does not. Having a degree in writing and having a degree in English are two very different things. And even if she was properly qualified, that doesn`t make her book necessarily good. The book being properly written qualifies it as a properly written book.

Yeah, and 40 year old women who like it too? It`s not about kids. It`s about sexually, and romantically immature people. That one girl that Tiger Woods was bangin` loves the twilight series--and it`s my personal opinion that Tiger and probably all of those women he was with have serious f***ing issues, and probably never grew up.

Anne Rice? Hold her head up high? Not likely. Her books were excellent, but now that she`s a born-again Christian, she`s basically disowned Lestat and will never write vampire stories again.

Stay classy, Bram Stoker.

When I read Twilight it actually inspired me to want to write a better book as I always enjoyed reading even though my grammar is less then perfect. . Maybe someday I will though I wouldn`t hold my breath. I`m not a twilight hater and was able to enjoy certain parts of the books but it was just so hard to get over the fact that it was written as if she was talking to invalids.

Twilight is a disgrace to other vampire literature (if you can even call the creatures in that book vampires). hopefully after it has run its course it will be forgotten - Bram Stoker and Anne Rice will be able to hold their heads high once more.

"Stephenie Meyer was a major in English in college, so she`s not some bum off the street who decided to write down what was in her head.
Now I`m not saying that this automatically makes her book good, but it definitely qualifies it as a properly written book."

That`s like saying your studied astronomy so that definitely qualifies you to be an astronaut.

A properly written book, and a well written book are very different things. Just because she majored in English, doesn`t mean she has any talent as a writer. Trust me.

I consider myself an avid reader. I even managed thru the Harry Potter books and could see how she matured as a writer. However, I was lucky I made it past the first few chapters of Twilight before I said NFW.
Kinda how I felt while suffering thru the movie for my kiddie`s sake.

Let`s give it up for real literature!

But seriously, Twilight is written horribly. It`s mostly dialogue (which proves it was pretty much made to be a movie), there are no literary techniques of any sort... It`s just so boring to read.
