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.
cullengrl108 (Caroline, fangirl): Hey Chels! I'm going to the book signing for the new Twilight novel!!! OMFG I CANT WAIT!!!

A terrible book written by the new hit author, Stephanie Meyer. It's about a 'smart' girl who throws her life away for a abusive boyfriend, and is also rather 'sophisticated' due to the fact that she likes Shakespeare - however, she has only been seen reading such books once or so, and seems to have little or no impact on her. Other main characters are the abusive boyfriend and an equally abusive friend, two guys who fight over her for most of the series. The interesting characters lack development, and are only there to take up space.

Obsessive fans of Twilight are called 'Twitards;' strange, rabid creatures that one should be very cautious around. They are known to flame forums with offensive reviews in all caps with horrible grammar, and in more violent cases when their pathetic book is insulted, they may claw your eyes out, bite your head off (literally), stab you repeatedly, burn you at the stake, or fix cement boots to your feet and drop you into a quarry.

If you see a Twitard or the book their cult is circled around, DO NOT MAKE DIRECT EYE CONTACT. Twitards need little or no reason to attack you, and the book has the power to burn your eyes out with one glance. Should you glance at the book, you must cleanse your eyes IMMEDIATELY by reading all of the Harry Potter books in quick succession, followed closely by watching all of the movies. It would be a good idea to also watch the Potter Puppet Pals or A Very Potter Musical (found on YouTube) just in case.
Me: "I just told a chick that I didn't like Twilight...."

My Friend: "HOLY SHIT! Are you okay?! What did she do?!?!?!"

Me: "She tried to burn me at the stake, saying that I must have been polluted by the witchcraft in Harry Potter...."

My Friend: "...Do I really want to know what you did to her?"

Me: "No."

My Friend: "Tell me anyw-"

Me: "Trust me. You really don't."

For all those people who are bagging this movie, you obviously have no life to shit on a book that you hate. I mean why take the effort to write how much you hate this book. Your all idiots.

Twilight's good and you assholes just ruin it for everyone else.
If its such a crap series then why in the world is it so damn popular and even been made into movies. I'll tell you why, its to keep away from the real world where people like you like to shit on everyone elses life, when in fact you losers are the ones who surf the net looking for something to make your life count for something.
"I hate twilight" aka. "I have no life so how about i shit on someones great idea."

A novel containing an over-used plotline and has absolutely no originality. It's popularity is comparative to that of the Harry Potter and Girls Gone Wild series, while most of the GGW fans find themsleves more turned on by Hagrid than anything from Twilight. Please note that any female aged 9 - 68 has a 96.1% chance on creaming themselves if they see a Twilight poster. You have been warned.
That book Twilight was a cheap knockoff combination of Underworld and Mama Mia.

Twilight is a book by Stephanie Meyers. It is the bible of the 21st century. The book can be compared to how Hitler was addicted to getting rid of the jews. As Twilight is addicting.
Woah, Twilight is the best book ever!

OMG you have to read Twilight!

Don't conform to Twilight! It's a poor mans Harry Potter.

(N) a fantastic vampire book written by Mormon Stephanie Meyer. Though the fanbase is largely female, many readers of both sexes are inspired by the four novels.

Twilight
New Moon
Eclipse
Breaking Dawn

An amazing book series, the story is interesting and allows everyone to fullfil their hidden romance fantasies. I suggest it to everyone, regardless of what ANYONE SAYS!
OME! Have you read Twilight? Edward Cullen is amazing. I love him.
