Kevin Charles Harrington Just pointing out the obvious wrongness of her post. :p Twilight is massively popular and unless you've been literally living under a rock (because even without media exposure you would have heard about it from other people) you know it. Therefore, she WISHES no one liked it.
Jen Jones- Twilight is a story about a girl who feels like she is misunderstood... like many of the people who are fans of the book(s). Fact is, most people like seeing themselves in main characters of a book. So when it's such a stereotyped female character (a girl who needs a man and does nothing for herself but cause trouble) of course it is going to have a vast following. Add a shirtless guy and all the preteens will go nuts. This kind of story makes it hard to enjoy on a deeper level because it's all about a relationship and not about much else.
The story is basically about a teenager and a vampire who become so obsessed with each other they cannot function without each other. Not only is that kind of relationship unhealthy, but it is also creating a fantasy for young adults that love isn't something you work for, it's just there. Unfortunately, in the majority of romances, that is not the case. This book/movie is basically creating a 'damsel in distress' disorder amongst young women. It gives them the message that they must be 'saved' and cannot do much of anything for themselves.
To put it bluntly- I'm not wrong. Fans love the book, and everyone else hates it. There is no in between with this kind of writing.
My existence alone proves you wrong. I'm not obsessed with Twilight, I don't love it. And yet, I don't hate it. I've read the books and seen the movies and they're worth a try, but there are other books and movies I would pick up first. Therefore, I LIKE them. Middle ground.
Jen, I believe you missed Phoebe's point: No one likes Twilight. Since you like Twilight, you are "no one". That would go for most misguided souls who like that massively wasteful bit of acting. Glad to clear that up for ya!
