Let's try and not get a biased opinion, people, PLEASE.

Here goes...

A book series written Stephanie Meyer about a girl, Isabelle Swan, known as Bella, who decides to live with her father in Forks, Washington. There, she meets and eventually falls in love with the elusive and attractive Edward Cullen. Problem? Edward is a vampire who can barely withstand the scent of Bella's blood. Despite this, they begin a turbulent relationship leading into a chase for Bella's life against rival vampire James.

This book has become increasingly popular, especially with teenage girls or fangirls, and has been compared to Harry Potter in popularity and fan base. This series has spawned 3 sequels, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn, respectively, as well as a movie, Twilight, along with its upcomign sequel, New Moon. Twilight t-shirts and other paraphernalia can be found almost everywhere, especially in Hot Topic, and is considered to be a better seller than many of the store's other products.

However, though there are many positive things to say about Twilight, there is also a downside. Many have criticized the style of writing in the series, more specifically, the details. Bella's VERY detailed descriptions of people (by People I mean Edward) can cause an annoyance to some readers (Ex: "Ok, you think he's hot. Move the fuck on!").

Secondly, the stereotypical (though not always accurate, bear with me here) Twilight fangirl is a girl ranging from 12-17 years of age who would be, when it comes to physical appearance, unnatractive. Because some of these girls know that they will not attract the attention of human male until later in life, Edward Cullen will have to do.

Fangirls will usually be seen with something pertaining to the series, whether it is one of the books itself, one of the Twilight tees from Hot Topic (see above), or other similar things of that nature. They will also post fanfics on FanFiction.net on how they would see this story or look up all things Twilight/Stephanie Meyer/Edward Cullen (or whomever the like best)on Google for hours.

Emotionally, Twilight fangirls can tend to have a holier (or in this case, Twilightier)-than-thou aura (think like certain scene girls). Fangirls will usually get into a long rant when one of the following occurs (but not limited to):

1. Someone has read only Twilight, and has no interest in reading the others for one reason or another (fanngirls might try to push you to read all of the others

2. Someone does not find Edward Cullen attractive (the girls who fit this category usually have a significant other, but the one way to piss a fangirl off is to say that you think Jacob Black (or even James) is hotter than Edward)

3. Someone who prefers seeing the movie, rather than read the book (fangirls will try to make you read the book first)

4. Someone who is simply uninterested in the series (fangirls WILL push you, if you're not interested, simply say so)

5. Someone who believes that Edward Cullen gives unrealistic expectations for men (that all men have to have sparkly skin, be poetic, heroic, etc.) and that the relationship between Edward and Bella is either unrealistic, soap-opera-esque, or simply cheesy. (We'll get to that later)

6. Someone thinks the movie was better than the book (Most fangirls believe that the movie was either as expected or god-awful)
However, there will be fangirls in relationships or pursuing someone. They will usually compare their relationship/crush to Edward and Bella's relationship, saying that they and their crush/boyfriend were "meant to be," despite that the crushes might want nothing to do with the fangirl.

But don't think that all of this only applies to girls. Boys, though very few, DO read Twilight for entertainment.

In conclusion, Twilight is a pop culture fixture that everyone will remember and either love, hate, love to hate, or hate to love.

Porn for women
Girl 1: Hey have you seen Becky lately?

The book designed for teenage girls to get off to and teenage boys to secretly read under their covers with a flashlight each night trying to feed off of what Edward does in hopes of getting a few pointers in winning girls over. Everyone will have negative things to say about this but all I can say is, congrats Stephanie Meyer; you sure won over the minds of a billion hormonal teenage girls by talking about Edward's chizzled jawline for 4 books straight.
"Really, what's the plot?"
"Uhmm..... IDK but Edward, the vampire boy, IS SO FUCKING HAWWTTT."

a book that just now everyone is obsessed with. You can't look for a bumpersticker on facebook without seeing"I love edward". omg get over yourself! it's a book, it's okay to like a book, but not if it prevents you from living your life normally (or as normal as an obsessee can be)
girl: "omg i love twilight, edward is soo dreamy"
me: "sorry to burst your bubble but he's not real, the dude who pays him is ACTING, please for the sake of humanity, get over yourself"

that book by stephenie meyer which caused the vampire genre to be classified as a "teenage love-story" instead of "badaas stories of hardcore blood drinkers". teenages girls eat this shit up for some reason.
Teenage Girl:OMG ILOVE TWILIGHT EDWARD IS SO HOT!!!1!!!ONE!!!!11!!!1!

Probably the worst series of books,
that later turned into one of the worst movie, ever created.
The story revolves around the protagonist Bella Swan, who is the average every day MaryJane new girl in town, with not-so-special looks, and personality.
But dispite all of that, the most inhumanely gorgeous boy, Edward Cullen, catches interest in her. That is just one of the many cliches displayed in this book.
Another being that he is a vampire who thirsts the most for Bella's blood, yet ironically loves her.
Woah, no one saw any of this coming. I could hardly stomache reading it. Every other sentance is describing Edward's perfect face, and body, and whatever, which leads me to believe Stephenie Meyer has some severe issues living in a sad fantasy to escape the reality she didn't marry someone like that.
Though I did not read the last one, I was told Edward and Bella have sex and produce some kind of mutant half vampire half human offspring. Which furthers Stephenie's perversions. It's a teen book for god's sake, keep that shit to yourself.
The fact that the book is about an average everyday girl like most of us, who finds the perfect boy is the perfect ploy to bring in naive lonely tween girls to purchase this horrible cliche book.
Though dispite how truely awful, and lacking in any literary devices it is, it was turned into a movie. Which proved that the movie industry has gone to shit.
The acting was nothing special, and the scenes moved so fast it seemed unreal. One scene they hate eachother, and the next they're in love. And it is not real love, it is based on shallow, looks-based feelings. But, it was a movie about Twilight, so I expected as much.
For some reason, girls, housewives, and even some boys seem to be obsessed with the book and the sweet things Edward says.
I think people need to get across that it is a BOOK. Therefore Edward will say the right things at the right time. And for that matter, Edward is a figment of Stephenie Meyer's mind. So anything he says is what SHE has made up. If you are "so so so in love with Edward" Then you really feel so about the author.
Fuck this book, and fuck everyone who loves it so much.
Twilight is the epitomey of shit.

An extremely overrated book read by the likes of fangirls. Who adore Edward Cumchunks, even though he's just text and does not exist. Has a very terrible storyline having to do with a stereotypical teen girl falling in love with a vampire. There is absolutely no literature value coming with it.
Twilight fan girl: OMG twilight rulleeezzz , i saw the movie likez 10 times. Edward is like so dreamy and hot.

Person with taste in books : Shut up you ignorant pre-teen. Twilight is a terrible book. Go and read something with actual literature value, like the lord of the rings, a clockwork orange, to kill a mockingbird, 1984, the silence of the lambs the adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Twilight fan girl: Yourrr a faggg, Twilight rulez ur just jelos tat ur not fameos like ppl in da twilight movie. Only gay people hate twilight

Person with taste in books: ....... (walks away)
