A stupid book that is poorly written and has a cliched plot. The characters are unoriginal and the entire book is based on the fact that Edward is a sparkly fairy trying to pass for a badass vampire, but fails miserably.
He also catches the attention of the whiny Bella Swan and is somehow insane enough to fall in love with her. Bella is somehow insane enough to fall in love with him. They both fail at life. Epically.
The entire book is about how beautiful of a fairy Edward is and how love will keep them together.
This book gives obsessed fangirls the idea that the ideal boyfriend is a old creepy pedophile that watches you while you sleep and isolates you from you friend. It also tells them that romance is all about looks, an abusive relationship, and teen pregnancy.
It's an overall failure.
fangirl: I wish I was Bella Swan so I could be in Twilight.
smartperson:Oh, so you want to be a whiny bitch with an abusive pedophile boyfriend in a book that is horribly written?
fangirl: YES! wait. what? um..... no?
smartperson: You're an idiot. Go read a real book.
