You know I have friends that LOVE twilight, but I hate it!! To me twilight sucks, the books and the movie sucks!! but thats what i think, ya know!! so if ya like twilight, thats cool, but i think it should burn!!
You shouldn't ever want any form of Literature to burn. Every writer should be able to express themselves, even if you don't like it. Plus I kinda hope to write a book someday so I think it's bad karma to say something like that, for me at least to say it. Especially when you don't have any basis reason to dislike aside from it "sucking" (For the record I think it's a funny little pun that you all say 'it sucks' since they're Vampires and well you know that's what they do, so yeah of course they suck heh) in your opinion.
I read Twilight back when the second book came out. So this insanely crazy fan base did not exist when I started to read it. So I was fortunate enough to have an open mind when I read them, unlike many of you who probably only heard of it after the movie became well known. My thing is I like twists in stories, people having different unique theories on what they believe to be true on something they've heard of. There are sooo many different types of Vampire legends out there, so when I heard about Twilight I was curious. When I read it my mind didn't think, "That's stupid a sparkly vampire that doesn't feast on human flesh?! How lame." My mind went to this, "Huh cool theory. It makes it kind of easier to believe that Vampire's could be real." Plus I like romantic stories, this was a romantic story.
Now while I liked the plot, and all the romance involved I have to say the things I dislike about these books/movies, for one Meyer is a terrible writer. Good ideas, bad writing style.... just... awful. It's a very juvenile style of writing, which is weird because the storyline isn't exactly juvenile... (Vampires ripping the heads off of other vampires... etc.) So I guess people who have difficulty reading but want to become better readers should enjoy this. Who knows this could open other doors for them to want to read other stories! Another dislike of mine is well... Kristen Stewart can't act to save her own life. She has a very one tone voice to her. I find her to be mediocre to say the least. The final dislike is of course, the fanbase. They have become so big, so annoying, and so friggin stupid one can't help but resent it a little.
I'm sure I have more to say on this delightful subject but I grow weary and well I'm sure most of you stopped reading after the first paragraph. ^_^ But yeah, go easy on Twilight, one day you may stumble upon a random forum bashing something you created and are quite proud of.
