An overly popular book/movie that is the current trendy thing to read as of January of 2009. This book singularly threw the old concept of the mythical vampire out the window. Everything from mortal thralls, to the drinking of human blood has been thrown out for the central character in this "book". It also happens to be wildly popular with most juvenile girls. Fans of this book/movie tend to defend it with admirable loyalty, but their defense is usually half assed and not very well thought out or presented.
-Have you read Twilight? It's the best!

-No, I haven't, I refuse to dim myself down with that "romantic" drivel that's the current trend.

Basically, a crap book.

The main character of this horrific series is the not-too-feminist Bella Swan, who claims that should Edward McSparklepants (her very own twu luv) die, she would also take her own life. Apparently, she can't live without him. I mean, way to be independent. Plus, that's kind of the basic premise of all four books. Edward and Bella spend their time getting out of supposedly exciting situations, but while you're reading these, you'll want them to be over. And you're probably angry at all the purple prose that has made its way into this thing, and if you have to read about Edward's 'marble, beautiful, cold' body again, you will punch something. Violently.

Unfortunately, this book is wildly popular because Bella has no personality at all so you can step into her shoes. Everyone claims to want an Edward, but only few realize he's really a controlling jerk. He never lets Bella make any of the decisions, (nor should she, since she seems to have no common sense) and even takes the engine out of her car so she couldn't go see her best friend. Plus, he's a vampire (who fucking sparkles in the sun like Tinkerbell) and a 106 year old virgin, which is just plain scary. It's like Edward was completely asexual until Bella arrived, which is odd. He's battling the thirst for her blood or something like that. Whatever. They still have no chemistry whatsoever, and all they do is whine to each other about how it's dangerous for them to be together.

The plot is massively cliched, and done terribly.

So, um. It sucks. A lot. Please, spare your brain and don't read it.
Fangirl: Edward is so awesome. I know I'm not speaking in my typical terrible grammar, but this is only for those who can't understand chatspeak at all. Plus, it's a way to fill the example box.

A horribly written novel with a multitude of grammar mistakes that is full of cliches and Mary Sues/Gary Stus. For no particular reason, a bunch of twitards become crazily obsessed with this book just because of "OMG SOOOO SUPER HOT!!" vampire Edward Cullen. However, Edward is a pathetic excuse for a vampire because he has tons of strengths and no weaknesses. He's not weak to garlic, sunlight, or ANYTHING vampires are weak to. There's also no plot, it's just Edward and Bella being lovey dovey. Bottom line: It sucks.
Actual crappy text from the last page of Twilight's epilogue:
"'Yes,' I whispered so my voice wouldn't have a chance to break. If he thought I was bluffing, he was going to be disappointed. I'd already made this decision, and I was sure. It didn't matter that my body was rigid as a plank, my hands balled into fists, my breathing erratic . . .
He chuckled darkly, and leaned away. His face did look disappointed."

Seriously, Stephenie? o_o

Our brand of heroine.
Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight is a love story with a bite

I know that loads of haters will go aginst me but I don't care. Twilight is a book / movie about a girl named Isabella Swan who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington and meets the strange Edward Cullen. She knows that he is different and wants to find out what he really is. After he saves her from being crusshed by a car with inhuman speed and strength, she knows that he is not human. She finds out from her (soon to be werewolf) friend Jacob Black, that the Cullen family, supposedly consisting of two adults and five adopted teenagers, are vampires. Edward admits to it and tells her to keep away from him, as her blood appeals to him more than anyone else's. The Cullens are 'vegetarian' vampires, meaning that they don't drink human blood as they want to be good vampires. Of course Bella can't keep away from Edward, and her life suddenly becomes endangered when a sadistic vampire called James decides to kill her. her life is saved, once again, by Edward. The other books in the series are New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. The movie of the first book, the one I just described, Twilight, has been made and the others will be soon. In my opinion, the Twilight series are great and if you haven't read them, I would.
You should read the Twilight books and see the movie, they are all great

A captivating book by Stephenie Meyer, but a bit in the blue about the muddled description of vampires. I'm guessing that she either did not research vampires and vampirism carefully or did not care about the myth-facts, for there were several gaping plot holes throughout the book. Also, it took several exact elements from Anne Rice's book The Vampire Lestat, my point being the trite unoriginality of Edward and Bella's relationship and the too exact similarities between Edward Cullen and Lestat DeLioncourt. The precursor to the sequal New Moon.
"You are exactly my brand of herion. . . " - Edward Cullen, Twilight.

"This is a. . . .um. . . . *big* Jeep you have," Isabella Swan, Twilight.

The first in a series of books by Stephenie Meyer,it has quite a mixed reaction with millions of teenage girls seemingly obsessed with Bella's love interest Edward Cullen and millions of older more mature people thinking the book is a pile of crap. I'm one of those teenagers who loved the story between Bella and Edward and is it really that bad to hope their is a boy out there who could treat us like that? take the stick out of your ass, no one forced you to read the book!
'twilights amazing'
'no its crap and false'
'oh shut up its my opinion shitprick!'
