The biggest load of shit to ever hit shelves. The books were filled with the biggest nonsense that anyone has ever read. They're worthless, stupid, and Stephenie Meyer gives every author and everyone hoping to become an author a bad name. Thanks a lot.

There are other definitions available, but I just wanted to address some criticisms of the Twilight Saga.
It's a cliche vampire novel: No, not really. The author, Stephenie Meyer, never saw any vampire movies/read any vampire books. She admitted that she didn't really know the mythology, and so she made her vampires different because she focused on them as real people; hence, no fangs, garlic, wooden stakes, problems w/sunlight, etc.
It's poor literature: Really up to the individual reader in my opinion. Is it the most beautiful, perfect, polished writing? No. However, it is very descriptive and engaging, and the action parts are dramatic and exciting. Also, as even twi-haters have admitted, the books are addicting. That counts for something-the books are compelling to say the least.
Twilight fans are all idiot fangirls: Well, if you make sweeping generalizations about a group of people, then you are setting yourself up for comeuppance. That is just ignorant. If I said football fans are all thuggish muscle-bound jocks, is that the truth? Of course not. Don't judge the fans by a few that you've met, and don't judge the books just because everyone's talking about them.
Bella's and Edward's love is unrealistic/shallow/etc. : In Twilight, their love is portrayed as the out-of-this-world, destiny/fate, Romeo+Juliet kind. Not a lot of explanation, just an accepted fact. It's not realistic, but then it's not supposed to be. The story is about the complications that arise from their love. The love is not based entirely on looks/lust, but chemistry. It is idealized, perfect love. Just accept it.
The characters are stupid/dull/unrealistic: Again, matter of opinion. They are what they are. Personally, I don't like Bella, but I love Edward. Anyone who considers him shallow or pathetic should read the excerpt from Midnight Sun.

I just wanted to make this definition because I was distressed at the amount of prejudiced and negative comments about one of my favorite book series. Hopefully we can discuss it a little more civilly if everyone can just calm down and let people express their opinions.

None needed. If you want to criticize the Twilight books, read them first with an open mind.

The first book to a wonderful series by Stephenie Meyer. With action, comedy, romance, and emotion.
When Bella moves into the rainy town of Forks, Washington she notices Edward Cullen. She soon learns that he is a vampire and despite this, she just can't stay away from him. Well, Edward can't either. :) All the while Edward fights his primal instincts to drink Bella's blood. The couple must overcome many obstacles.

Mostly the teens are into the series, but some adults have found an interest in the books. Despite how many people think that the main interest for reading Twilight is Edward (though it is part of it) the book really does suck you in and you can't help feeling everything that Bella feels.
Twilight is my obsession.

twilight is one of the best books ever written. it is about a girl named Bella Swan who falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen. They face dangers and that brings them closer together and they fall deeply in love but in Stephanie Meyer's third book, Eclipse, Bella faces a hard decision to stay human or become a blood-thirsty vampire for ever.
a must read, twilight is the best book ever.

A very popular and well written novel by miracle Stephenie Meyer. A book that some people like to criticize for no apparent reason, and when they try, they come up with nothing that makes sense. Twilight lovers are a very dedicated and passionate group and i would suggest to the group mentioned above to sleep with one eye open...

A somewhat decent series of books by Stephanie Meyer. The main problem with the books is the people who read them: THOSE FUCKING ANNOYING FANGIRLS!! Twilight quickly became the Jonas Brothers of books and movies, since a Twilight movie was released November of 2008.

The story involves Isabelle Swan (Bella) who falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen (who can read minds, has super speed, and apparently can give any girl an orgasm at any time.)

Facebook is flooded with groups and bumper stickers of how much these girls love (and i mean LOVE in a disturbing way) Edward (Along with other people in the series that are less important)

The movie version gave girls the opportunity to have an actual picture of what he looks like instead of trying to make one up while fingering their pussies, because no guy would date a twilight addict like them. It was also a bold move for Rob Pattinson, who played Edward Cullen, because he made the choice of getting a shit load of money at the cost of every straight boy in America hating him.
Dracula would be pissed off if he saw what Twilight did to vampires and their public image these days.
