Anyone else besides me HATE Twilight?

I thought the books were poorly written and the movie was even worse. I don't see what all the hype is.

  • I hate it too! The books weren't worth the paper they were printed on (glad I didn't buy it, just borrowed it) and as for the movie the only reason I went to see it (on baby day) is so I could trick my kids into taking a nap so I could nap too! Yes I paid to take a nap! Lol

  • Really? I have heard sooo many good things about these books! I want to read them:)

    I did see the movie, though and I thought it was disappointing.

  • I have no desire to read the books or see the movie. Maybe I'm missing out but I think I'll be OK.=)

  • I didn't like the movie. But the books I loved, more the later ones than the first 2 though. But i am the corny one that got into the Harry Potter hype to, and after that was over I was kinda looking for somehting else to get into.....to each his own I guess.

  • I thought her writing was reminicent of a third grader to tell you the truth. The plot was just okay, but it took all of my will power to finish the series.

  • AK, Stephanie Myers does not even compare to JK Rowling! I totally understand the Harry Potter hype because they were well written; the plot was not only mature, but it taught something as well. They characters were REAL to us and that shows JK's skill.

    The Twilight series is a mess of poor writing skills, cliche characters and over-done plots. I know it has a huge following, but I guess I just don't get it and never will.
