Probably one of the most popular books to hit the shelf in 2006, following through with 2007 sequals. Many girls of their early teen years have absolutely fallen in love with this book, and it's caused a rabid swarm of binders and notebooks sporting the words 'I love Edward Cullen.' I blame the books on a higher rate of girls believing themselves to be dark and alone, and this book has caused quite a few of the people I know to believe they are vampires.

Despite the length of the books, I find it to be a fairly poor piece of literature. I have read the first two, and the two main characters completely lack origionality. Bella is nothing but a sniveling girl who takes advantage of some people, and then grovels at the feet of others. Edward is obviously a vampire thirsty for, ironically, Bella's blood, and at the same time he is abstinant from drinking from humans. In all sense Edward should draw himself away from such a 'dangerous'individual-- that or eat her. Many people fail to notice that the characters circulating around the main pair, such as Alice, Jasper, Jacob, and the rest of the crew are a lot more interesting, and less involved in cliche lives to match those of the main characters.

In any case. It's an entertaining book to read when you have nothing else to do, but there are many better books to read.
Twilight fanatic: I'm an Edwardist. I love Edward. Are you?
Me: No, personally I'm more partial to Jasper.
Twilight fanatic: Well I love Bella too. They're so great together!
Me: Actually, I think Alice is a much better character in the series. The relationship that she has with Jasper is cuter, more secretive, and I find a whole lot more interesting to read about.
Twilight fan: ...Yeah... well -denial-

Twilight is the time between dawn and sunrise, and the time between sunset and dusk.
Twilight is one of the most beautiful times of the day for some people.

A poorly written piece of literature that somehow ended on the Bestsellers list. Composed in a four-set series (soon to be five), the saga follows the difficulties that Mary-Sue (Bella Swan) and Gary-Stu (Edward Cullen) expirience day-to-day.

Gary-Stu is a "dazzling", "mezmerizing", "god-like", one hundred-year-old vampire that lusts for Mary's blood. He is known to be the most beautiful creature alive, indestructable, and so fast he is a mere blur whenever he moves. However, he posses horrible, overreactive, bi-polar and manic traits that often makes the reader ponder his eccentric mood swings.

Mary-Stu, the epitome of "beautiful", is the whiny, self-centered, retortful and shallow heroine of the novels. Despite having a daughter of her own, a gorgeous, loving and selfless husband, a few cars, becoming a vampire, and a fantastic family, she is never satisfied. She has been revealed as a sex-addict.

tl;dr: The Twilight saga is nothing but horrible moral values of teenage girls, a jackpot of cliches, and 600+ pages of uneducated literature. To save a liveful of regret, please refrain from reading the series.

If you would like to read real literature, invest in classic works, such as Charles Dickens or Anna Sewell. 21st-century writers include: James Patterson, J.K. Rowling, or Cornelia Funke; all three are successful writers with real, professional talent.
"Isn't Twilight such a fantastic book?"
"I beg to differ. The entire series has more shit than a medieval cesspool."
" . . . Lol. Wut?"
"What I mean is, this: Any person with half-a-brain would drop it immediately. I ought to know."

Read by girls who probably haven't even heard of Jane Austen or Edith Wharton, who are two of the best female authors and writers of the best love stories ever written. (i.e.: 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Summer', 'The Age of Innocence', 'Ethan Frome', 'Sense and Sensibility', etc).

A book with underdevelopped characters, a whiney protaganist, a 'perfect' vampire romeo who is more a controlling son-of-a-bitch than Casanova, and writing that lacks depth and imagery. The basis that 'true love comes from resisting having sex and killing your girlfriend' is one of the most ridiculous themes in any book I've ever read.

Read a real book.
Girl: 'Wow. Twilight has changed my views on love! Can you believe that a GUY is resisting having sex with a girl?! That takes WILLPOWER! Especially because he could KILL her! How dreamy. I wish a guy would risk his labiedo for my safety!'

Girl's Friend: 'I know, right! I wish I were Bella Swan. I want a relationship like that! .. I'm so lonely.'
