Overrated.

This is the most teenager overrated crap I've ever read. And I am saying this as a 17 year old girl that usually likes best sellers.

The cover says it is one of the best suspense novel ever written. Readers say it's adventure. Honestly, all I saw was a cheesy romance, with really-not-deep characters. All Edward can do (besides everything, because he is a Gary Stu) is laugh. An ironical laugh, a cute laugh, that smile that Bella loves so much because OMG, HE'S SO FREAKING PERCFECT! C'mon, it's pathetic. And, of course, the dark prince charming fell in love with a Mary Sue, who were absolutely nothing back in Phoenix but magically were transformed into the better girl in Washington State, the one which every single guy in town wants, grawr.
Not to mention how crappy the vampire creation is in this. Or even how in a hundred years, no one noticed the Cullens were vampires, but, a few weeks after being in town, Bella discovers it. She's so smart!!!

The only good part of the book is at the end, in less than hundred pages os its 400. FINALLY, THE ADVENTURE! That ended up being really predictable and BORING. But, at least, it revealed the only character in the whole plot who's worth knowing about: Alice.

Meyer did a not-so-great work of fanfiction, honestly. At least, it is what it looks like. Her descriptions about Washington State are great and her descriptions of people reactions are terrible. She would be better writing a book about reality. Or not writing at all.

So, I'd say, if you're looking for teenage cheesy drama, go read it. If you're looking for something that you can curse after you read, go read it. I don't see why anyone would read if it wasn't for one of those things. After all, the "greatest teenager suspence of all times" sucks.

I signed up for this website simply to comment on this.

I have to agree. I, as a fourteen year old guy, heard marvelous reviews about this book. Since I'm somewhat into what I was told the genre of this book was, I bought it.

Well, what a mistake that was.

Instead of what could have been a decent vampire-related novel, I realized I was reading was a steaming pile-of-shit love story that I really couldn't care less about. I feel bad--horrible for those who read this book.

Here's a synopsis:

Girl: Hay i liek u lol.
Girl: Wtf ur a vampire?!
Girl: O well, it'll wurk lol.

i feel so embarrased... for about 2 months all i said or did was influenced by twilight. i loved it. no, i was obsessed with it. that was practically all i read. and then, when i started realizing that it was getting boring, i started to try and read other books, AND I FOUND I COUNDN'T!! the books were too different from twilight, and then i realized that they were different becasue it was GOOD writing... i now have come around but am still so ashamed that i liked something that horrible. i have not picked up one of her books for about 4 months now.

Way to hop on the bandwagon bashing Twilight. Very original. We KNOW it sucks, we KNOW fangirls are annoying, we KNOW she's a Mary Sue. If you really hated it you'd let it fade into non-existence.

This is a review space. If I let there be only good reviews about this piece of crap, there won't be the truth.

Heya!

Isis, I also read the book and I totally agree with you. There's nothing more to add. :/ Thank you for telling the truth.

ok
i read this "best seller" way before it insanely popular
it was an ok book, it followed the generic teen crap. nothing special.
i was 13 and i could tell that the 'story' was a shamble of fantasies and now, im a sophomore (1oth grade for u dumb people) and every self centered, attention whoring, dumb-ass prep is reading that god-awful book
why cant people see that StarCraft has a better story than Twilight

I cant wait for when the next part of the series (if there is more) to come JUST to watch those brainless sheep flock to it.
I know im hoppin on the bandwagon here, but if there is gonna be any remains of the shitstorm, i want it to be this page full of rants against it.

why did Meyer have to make vampires gay?
-typical convo-
person1: know any good vampire stories?
person2: i think Twilight is good
person1: BESIDES twilight? One that involves some actual fights
person2:.......what?

the public needs to be back-handed in the face

While I agree entirely, and also believe that the book creates expectation in teens that are above and beyond the capabilities of any man to realize, I also feel like I need to point out that your article would be a bit more respectable with some spell checking. You clearly have the right idea, but a once over can't hurt can it? I've seen too many good posts turn unreadable because I can't stand:

1) Exaggeration: Caps lock is just about the furthest thing for awesome cruise control in existence. Multiple exclamation points don't help your case.

2) Making a point and not following up on it.

Sincerely,
Your Stumbling Internet Grammar Nazi

I mean no disrespect here but what is your guys' problem? I agree with if you don't like it just leave it alone. You don't have to go bad talking all of the people that like it and the author too. She did her job and it has brought joy to a lot of people. Just let it be if you don't like it.
