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.
