Twilight?! by SM
« on: August 10, 2008, 06:22:49 AM »
Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer . . .

Now, before any HQ & self respected readers proceed trolling and whatnot, I assure you that I'm not particularly a fan. Aargh, the damn book is all over the news, it's maddening.

Apparently, it's farking famous. World-wide-famous kind. Oh, the endearing love between a [glittery&flawlessly flawless] vampire and [MarySue a la Ultimatus] human girl.

^^ Let's discuss the books/movie. I'd like to hear your thoughts, comments, complains/etc about it, and for those who are clueless to what it is, google it.

I have never read the Twilight series and do not plan to.  I'd just like to point out that, from what I've heard, the storyline is based on a human-vampire romance.  This is a common love that cannot be story, and I personally think that any book that uses it should have some kind of twist to it, but there isn't according to my knowledge.  Not that I want to insult anybody or their opinion, but I think that Twilight, like Harry Potter, is a repetitious, unimaginative, falsely advertised, and generally predictable series.

Now that I've read this, I doubt that I'll be reading this series.

The books were terrible. I read all four within 6 days because they were written by, I swear to God, a 15 year old girl with only a 9th grade English Composition class to her previous writing credits. If you start reading them and continue to read all four because you're hoping they will get better (like I did), and mature in character development, story line and action, don't hold your breath.

I liked the books.  I think the thing that makes me like them is the fact that she explains things in detail...  I remember a couple of times she would be describing one thing and it would take her about 5 pages to explain it.  But the books weren't as good as everyone makes them to be.  It's just a typical Vampire and Human puppy-love novel.

I'm not a huge fan of the books, although I can say that she had a good plot going on. The one thing that really got me was the sparkly vampires. I've never heard of a vampire being discoball like.

Lol, I think I got my hands on one of her books, but I just couldn't get into it. I am a big Anita Blake fan, just can't get into anything else these days. :laugh:

Insanity is a fun state of mind. I can amuse myself and have my friends wanting to get me a straight jacket and a padded room.

Where's all the killing and draining humans of their tasty, warm blood? I guess a little love is okay, but there's a point where this unreal love thing is going too far.


Agreed

Sparkly vampires......OMG  :doh:

Vampires are evil and are killers....thats they way they should be kept...not nicey nicey...oh just thinking about nice loving sweet vampires makes me want to hurl.....who ever heard of a wimpy vampire...never until now  :doh: :gun:

Yes .....vampires can be romantic, even then...the one they love, they kill and turn them into a vampire

Even Lestat, arguably one of the most effeminate vampire characters ever conceived, was a completely and thoroughly ruthless killer at times. In fact, he was, in the Anne Rice books, the epitome of what it meant to be a vampire.

I love these books. She also wrote a book called the host. They are all very good. I would do nearly anything to get my hands on them.

You know, I do actually find the mere ideas she's come up with offensive. It's one thing to use a new idea, or put a new angle on it, but this is destructive. What Anne Rice did was a logical extension of the vampire mythos. What this moron did was not a logical extension of what Anne Rice did. It is just trash.
