Sorry, I'm inclined to disagree- when you combine the erroneous editing, plot holes, horrific morals, and downright bad writing, plus a few other factors, it's really a bit... um, lousy?

Wait a sec... you're NINE, and you've read them? ALL of them? Like, the last one, too?

Another Twilight thread? Okay. Well, sorry, but I'm inclined to agree with Mary W. But I can see why some people like them, and it's fine that you do! :)

I totally agree(with Mary W.). Twilight isn't that good, it has no plot, and really, it just isn't interesting. Seriously, I don't know how it got so popular and made into a graphic novel AND movie. It's one of those books that you turn the page just to see what happens next.

Your mom is right. In more ways than one.

My sister told me that, too. I still want to read them, though.

The Twilight books are very inapropriate. I think that if you really want to read them you should read them with you Mom or Dad; better yet, wait two or three years!

I haven't read them, but it doesn't seem like the type of book I'd read. Especially the inappropriate parts. Romance is not me.

*clears throat* Michelle and Grace... you're both nine. These are too old for you. You probably shouldn't read them until you're old enough to appreciate the sheer stupidity. It takes a lot of work to compile a book that awful.

I am offended! I love this book.

You're offended? Well... apologies and all. But I think it's awful writing. Bad morals. Weak characters. Abysmal development. What do you find so great about it?

Yay! Thanks, Anna!

Random piece of information: in the first book, Bella calls Edward "hard" 109 times, "stone" 29 times, "marble" 9 times, and "statue" seven times, but then she also calls him "soft" 48 times. Hard and soft at the same time? Does that even make sense? More to the point, think about how much purple prose all that must have amounted to. ((dangling preposition, sorry))
