Well, I agree with you, they're not really well written and the story is sometimes too predictable. Nevertheless, anda should understand that most people don't really care for the menulis but for the story itself and the story is entertaining, misterious and funny sometimes. In any case, Stephenie Meyer used a lot of the ancient vampire myths to create these new improved modern vampire that we see in Twilight now. That is, in my opinion, the most appealing side of these books. The fact that it includes a cinta story between someone perfectly normal (Bella) that we can all in certain levels relate to and a supposedly perfect in any ways vampire (Edward) is certainly what made a lot of people read these books. The perfect cinta between these too, that is so bad it is good, is what keeps almost everyone hooked with this story. We see all this world through Bella's eyes, which is also the reason why we don't really see Edward's imperfections, and we can relate to her story because she's normal, she lives in a normal place, she has normal friends until something unusual happens to her, which could happen to all of us. So I guess that those are the reasons why most people cinta Twilight even though, in my opinion, it is terribly written, like anda said.
First off, I'd like to say that I absolutely HATE it when people put things like this on a Twilight fansite. Notice the byline: "A fanspot of the buku Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn." This is not an appropriate pertanyaan for this spot.
Secondly, I loved the buku lebih than anything I've ever read, and this guestion's answer, to me, seems very obvious. I know it might not be that way to others.
Thirdly, do anda have any reasons why anda don't like the Twilight books? Examples of how they're "badly written"? I'd like to hear them, please.
Fourthly, how do we know you've read the book? And how do we know anda haven't?
Fifthly, They are not badly written, in my opinion.
Consider what I said, and answer my pertanyaan in a message to me, please.
I teach English Lit, and every time one of my students makes a bold statement like this one, "terribly written," I always ask them to support their argument with evidence.
What do anda mean oleh that exactly? If it is because it's written in everyday English, I actually think that's wonderful, diberikan the fact that they're buku for young adults.
Based on my experience, the lebih accessible the language is in a novel, the better it is (with the exception of the very honorable Edgar Allan Poe, of course). Who wants to struggle while membaca for fun, anyway??
Now, if you're referring to the story structure AND character development, I do acknowledge that anda have a somewhat valid point there, but I wouldn't go as far as calling it terrible.
In Twilight, for instance, the antagonists (Victoria, Laurent and James) are brought in way too late into the story, and it's obvious that they're only introduced to create the final climax confrontation.
Also, something that really bothers me is that Jacob is used as an informational device and not much else when he first meets Bella. His character is poorly developed in Twilight, but this all changes in New Moon.
So, if these are the issues you're referring to when saying "terribly written," I partially agree, but, again, I wouldn't call it terrible.
I'd call it a lack of storytelling skills maybe, but keep in mind it's her first book series, so give the lady a break, why don't ya?
When anda criticize a work so harshly, anda better have some compelling and SPECIFIC evidence to back up your claims.
To sum it up, the story might be a bit cliche and predictable, but it's a PAGE TURNER, and the characters are very likable. They really stay with you.
In the end, no author's work is ever flawless. Heck, even Shakespeare had the problem plays, so my humble suggestion is only criticize something this harshly if anda can prove anda can do better. Let's see anda write a 4-book saga better than Stephenie.
People like it because Bella is basically a place holder for every teenage girl membaca so she can imagine what it's like to be with Edward Cullen... that's the main appeal. As for the terribly written bit, totally agree with anda on that point. Stephanie Meyer has used countless examples of link, her grammar is atrocious and she's admitted to having done no research. Regardless of what your book is about anda need to do research!
That's a bit harsh...but my friend shares your view. I think it's a unique and modern take on the whole vampire deal, and it makes the vampire unique. I agree, though, that it could have been better written.
ITS NOT THE WAY THE buku ARE WRITTEN THAT EVERYONE HAS FALLEN IN cinta WITH ITS WHATS IN THEM THEY GET SOOO CAUGHT UP WITH IT THAT THEY FORGET THAT ITS NOT 1ST CLASS LITRATURE AND START TO WISH THAT THEY WERE A VAMPIRE!
These buku are wonderful, they're not terrible. If they're terrible, why do a lot of people like them? I think anda should read them, and think about their contents again. And I think anda shouldn't ask this pertanyaan because it's not polite.
twlight... are not bad written... im 16 and i now younger people who loved them because of the way they were written not too hard atau too easy... twilight for many of us have change our lives it gave us something new to beleive on, something to talk about, beleive on bella's and edward's true cinta and Jacob's true friendship. and talk about the characters and why we are obsess with this new whole world...
Well that's your opinion, but other people (including myself) enjoy the books, they have a brilliant plot and likeable characters.....okay they may not be the best book ever but still they make anda want to keep membaca which I think is the most important part!=D Perhaps, if anda haven't read them go to your local perpustakaan and at least TRY Twilight...by the way if anda think they're terribly written why post such a pertanyaan on a spot where the majority of people are FANS?
They aren't the best written i agree, but the thing is that it captures your imagination and makes be believe that anything can happen. It is an escape from our world and it is a get away from my troubles. Plus i am a hopless romantic and i can't help be believe there is true cinta so I am completely imbedded in their cinta hoping that my cinta could be like that and that i will find true love. Another factor is the fantasi and the fun in the book, it has a good plot and is very entertaining even though it is not the best written. I hope that explains to anda why i cinta these books.
So what if they are terribly written they tell a story never the less, and that is worth membaca no matter how it is written. A good story teller doesnt need any fansy grammer(as u can see with my grammer "fansy") all they need is a story that everyone is willing to read atau listen to and that it appeals to someone in some way. I cinta stephanie myers stories and though im not obsessed with them like most girls i will give her credit that the stories drew me in and i read each book in one day...maybe about 5 hours..i think. but i knew that i had liked them from begaining to end and THAT my friends is worth my vote, if i read a book for enjoyment and spend all my..to-little allowence on the sequals then im a fan!!! keep it up stephenie!!!!
Well, perhaps the the writting isn't wonderful, but it is far from terrible, I think. Of course, every one has a different taste, and anda can only talk for yourself. I think that the reason I like the Twilight saga, is because of Stephenie Meyer's very uniqu viewof vampire and their society. It's unlike anything else and very original. I like that she has ignorered almost everything anda think a vampire is atau should be. The only thing she kept is the fact that they drink blood. Besides, there aren't many vampire/romace stories out there :) They are really hard to find! And when anda combine it with teenage love, anda have something no one has ever thoght of before. But as I berkata to begin with, membaca is very subjective. There isn't a book that every one can agree on loving, and that's that.
I don't think that they are terribly written - their not brilliant, and i know lots of buku (well, LOTS, of books) that are heaps better - and the storyline, in my opinion, is old. not original, but still kind of interesting. I still think that they're TERRIBLY written. If anda compare the way they're written to J.K Rowlings writing......... Need I say more? She can't write. Seriously.
I guess because the story is original. the cinta between a human and a vampire is quite unique. i do like these books. i was also obssessed with them. but now, i don't know why, i'm starting to find them a little plain. the big fuss about the buku is getting on my nerves.
I think I found my answer when someone berkata the they found something new to belIEve in...(honey, just remember the whole "i after e except after c" thing and you'll get your point across a lot lebih convincingly.)
First off, i'd like to say that everyone who is simply saying that the buku are great and that's it are no better than the person who posed a perfectly reasonable pertanyaan (of course it could have been lebih tactfully asked diberikan that this is a forum for pasangan of the books). So guys, lay off a bit, it's just a question, one that can be asked of every book you've ever read and liked but someone else hasn't.
Truthfully i agree with a lot of things that have been berkata here. The menulis is far from fantastic and for the most part the story isn't particularly original, boy meets girl, boy likes girl, girl meets another boy and other boy likes girl too. Oldest story in the book right? I understand that to a lot of people the story is engaging and interesting because it's fantastical (and i mean that in the sense that it's a fantasi not that it's fantastic) and it's just the same as the Harry Potter craze (which in my opinion was lebih deserving of the hype... i've got plenty of reasons for that but i'm not going to get into it here). I do think that the hype is ridiculous. They're not that great.
Well "they are terribly written" isn't a fact, its an opinion, YOUR opinion. I agree they aren't amazingly written but the first one is pretty good particularly and the story really sucks anda in! Its all a matter of taste =)
I'm also confused -- WHY do anda think that these buku are badly written? Do anda have reasons so anda can explain? Is it because they're written simply? It really bugs me when people say that a book was written badly simply because the majority of words were everyday-type-words and not huge many-lettered-hard-to-pronounce words, and because the sentences were simple plain everyday english rather than fancy complicated sentences. I believe the term that's used for buku with a complex menulis style is 'heavy reading'. Not everything has to be heavy, anda know. Sometimes it's nice to read something that is written in the same way that the characters would actually SAY them. These buku are written in Bella's point of view - a modern 17 tahun old girl. Would she speak with a sophisticated tongue? No. So, that's why I'm confused as to your question. Stephenie's menulis seems perfectly fine to me. It's written how Bella would say it.
I'm not a literature expert I on't even read lots of buku so I can't komentar on how great written they were.But in buku it is not just the menulis takes anda in.If the story make anda feel good make anda feel like anda own the story and if anda can feel the characters I consider that as a great book.And twilight was just one of those few buku which felt like mine.
I dont know what a TERRIBLY written book is:/ if i dont like a book i dont like it if i like it i like it an i dont agree with it its a very good book i cinta the cinta between all the vampire an i cinta how true jacob is to bella when he know he cant have her jantung bcuz edward has it but hes faithfull an i cinta da faithfull ness an cinta hahahaha dats it its not a TERRIBLY written book its a FANTASTIC book^^
First off, they aren't terribly written and if anda think they are anda shouldn't be posting it on the Twilight spot, because it's as if you're trying to rub it in the face of all the Twilight fan like myself and all the other people here.
THANK YOU!!! somebody finnaly agrees with me!! i actually used to like it but now its just gotten old. AND it makes girl feel insecure if they arent like bella. i have a friend that is so obsessed they actuall bought a truck that looks exactly like bella"s.
First off go screw yourself , detik if anda read them anda may like them at least not everyone kills each other and also i say darling who want edward carlise emmett jasper (i'm regreting this but this guy is based on the movie)james (sorry luvers but he was soo fine in the movie)jacob for a bf i mean they all sooo hawt and another thing this is twilight not say rude crap about twilight cuz twilight is one of the best seires written and another thing if anda hate it so much why the hell are anda post something on the twilight section of fanpop so anda know what 1) GET A LIFE 2)LEAVE US TWILIGHTERS ALONE & 3) GO SCREW YURSDELF
I personally think anda need mental help. im ritin book about vamps 2 but they will neva b as good as this series. The literater mite not b the best in the world but its not like anda need that for a book!!! Jeesh! Dont ask me about my story im just a teen i cant stand questions. Anyway, go away you're not wanted here! Go trash on summin else!
We come here to watch the reactions of twilight fans. Well I do. I cinta it. I personally (Along with other people in the world) think it sucks. I...think...it...SUCKS. I waste my time here to laugh about it.
×)×)×)im sorry 4 what im about 2 say But i going 2 give u wat u want kk i cant hold it in any longer FUCKING STUPID pantat, keledai MOTHER FUCKER YOUR AN A.S.S W.H.O.L.E STUPID pantat, keledai menggerutu, jalang its really mean 2 do what your doing just trying to piss us off your a FREAK im soo sorry twilight fan 4 wat i wrote ↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑ But it got to me and twilight is the Best out there people like him make me soo Mad cuz hes not telling u wat he thinks about the buku hes just doing it to piss us all off But i berkata wat needed 2 Be said
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!! i hate, absolutely HATE people like u!!!!! ok sure u dont have 2 like it but u also dont have 2 go out of ur way to tell every1 about ur annoyingness. y did u even come on to this site if u dont like twilight????????u...u... im not even gonna say it..... UUUUGGGHHH!!!!!
my first reaction would to say that anda are EXTREMELY big idiot, but everyone has they're own opinions but seriously why would waste your time on this fansite if your weren't a fan, unless anda are a totally massive LOSER which anda are because how can anda not absolutly cinta the twilight saga!!!! and that would my opinion. so in the of my best friend "go dy in a hole!"
I agree with some of the things that people have komentar on here, but some of anda just need to calm down. I cinta Twilight, I adore it. I am however, not going to threaten this person's life for disagreeing with me. I do agree that if anda don't like Twilight, anda should be on the spot, but hey , oh well. Stephenie Meyer has berkata many times that she isn't an expert at writing, and that Twilgiht came to her in a dream and she just started writting it. She berkata "No one was lebih surprised than me that I'd actually finished a book." She says she never went to writting school, neve took classes, and broke many rules of so called "good writting rules". Obviously this isn't true. BECAUSE her buku broke the rules is one of the many reasons why they're so loved. What about Piacasso? anda think he wasn't insulted? anda think he wasn't shuned for going against the grain? That's what people need. No one is unique anymore, they're all too scared of what people will say about them. anda say Stephenie Meyer is "a terrible writer", I say that she is the best writer for the reasons that anda say make her a bad one. P.S EASE UP TWILGIHTERS! THIS PERSON DOESN'T LIKE IT. WE WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY HE/SHE FEELS THAT WAY, BUT WCAN anda REALLY BLAME THEM FOR NOT WANTING TO JOIM US? wHEN WE'RE SAYING THINGS LIKE "I HOPE anda ROT IN HELL FOR NOT LIKING THIS BOOK!!!" AND "I'M GOING TO FIND OUT WHERE anda LIVE AND COME KILL YOU!!!" CAN anda REALLY BLAME THEM FOR THINKING WE'RE CRAZY? LOVES XOXOXO -BRINNA
I hate people whp put these srupid pertanyaan on a fan website about what there making fun of. The buku are fantastic and if anda don't like them anda should leave this club because this is a club abouta twilight were we like the film as much as the terrific books!
Your terribly written. We have our opinions, anda have yours. And if your gonna be a mean person about it, then anda can just go stick it in your jus box and suck on it!! Cause we Twi-hards cinta Twilight and we don’t care what anybody thinks atau says about it. The story is a beautiful cinta story with a magical twist. Everybody has things they like, so don’t go bashing other peoples hearts and minds!
Because we do. It's as simple as that. Everyone has their own reason for liking it. It doesn't have to be some classic piece of literature to be good. Why do people believe in things they can't see? Because they do. Why do people play sports? because they like to. Does it really matter why we do the things we do, atau why we like the things we like, atau what anyone else thinks of what we like? why do anda not like the book? because anda don't like the way it's written. anda just don't. why do i like this book? because it captured my imagination, well written atau not. i like it, the other people on this spot like it, we are going to like it, even if anda don't. so why do anda care if we like it atau not? it has no effect on anda in any way. do anda care about why people like musik anda don't like? no, it's just their preference. it really does not matter why we like these buku atau why anda don't. it's just a matter of personal taste, and everyone has their own personal taste. frankly, anda asking this question, is a complete waste of time. it should be simple enough for someone who can criticize menulis to understand that people like things just because it appeals to their personal tastes. you're the only person on this spot that seems to expect the buku to be written better despite being written oleh an average American woman who was not even intending to publikasi it when she wrote it. so you're the only person here who seems to have a problem with the way they are written.
i totally disagree that they are badly written. i have never read anything that gripped me so much. and i agree with however came up with th komentar that people don't want to read the book they want to crawl inside and live there. i only know one book that did that to me and that was hp and talking about that i think that in Hp the buku grow up in better menulis style as harry does, in twilight it stays at a very steady level which is probaly better because Bella is basically adult for all of the books. I some ways this better but i do cinta hp so do't think i'm dissing it. so twilight is not predictable and not badly written so don't bother posting it on a fan club
Well like to put up my dislike of Twilight on Twilight fan sites because that way I get a debate.(Which I enjoy a lot) I find it lebih interesting to debat rather then to talk to people who just agree with me because that's no fun.
I didn't think it was that badly written. I've read better. I like that they are different from other vampire books. I still cinta Twilight but its not my favorite. that would be Morganville Vampire series oleh Rachel Caine. Amazing book.
And way to freak out over a book people. I mean come on its a BOOK!!!! your not the author. so why the hell would anda get offended if someone express their opinion?
Why are anda on this fansite if anda think that. Just make an antiTwilight club and then anda can post things on there. atau are anda trying to make people mad? I don't really care either way but there are some Twlight crazy fan on here that might get definsive. I like them because the story is just a pull. Almost as if you're Bella and you're the one who's in cinta with a vampire and has a shapeshifter as a best friend. I'm addicted but oh well I think they're good books. But anda do have a right to you're opinion!
thats your opinion. not fact. so don't pretend like it is. what i can not stand is that low lives like anda come to this spot to just start a war and get attention. anda have the C.A.T. spot. where anda can express your opinion of twilight THERE. THERE IS NO NEED TO DO IT HERE. THIS CLUB IS NOT WHAT THAT IS FOR. its for the people who actually LIKE the twilight series. read the description. anda have no business being here. anda can't just leave the twilight fan alone. anda just have to come here and piss people off cause anda think its "fun". anda sir, are a very sad person.
I get that everyone can't like the same things but anda really should NOT post a pertanyaan like this on a fansite because people tend to take it very seriously and get all offended and all that.
I admit, at one point I was one of them but I'm way over that now.
Tell me this though, HOW atau WHY is Twilight terribly written? What makes a good book to anda and why is Twilight not it? If anda tell me that then I can answer your pertanyaan fairly.
I will admit that after membaca Twilight for like the millionth time, I've noticed a few flaws, such as TWILIGHT is mainly just speech and not too much description, and that may bug people.
I think one of the reasons people like Twilight so much is it's like an alternate reality. Whenever I felt sad atau stressed atau whatever, when I read The Twilight Saga, I completely forgot about them all and became a part of the story, anda know? It's like an escape.
People like the idea of perfection in men and women (the vampires) and to think that they could one hari find someone like that is comforting. (I think).
The fact that it's not about ordinary vampires, holy water, stakes etc. none of it works on the Cullens and it's kind of exciting. If you're the kind of person who doesn't like change atau something new, then Twilight is not for anda but it's nice to try something new.
Then there is manusia serigala which adds to the tension and the excitement. Sure, there is not many- if any fight scenes in the Saga but that's a new thing too. Usually vampire are all like, human kill, blood, blood, blood, kill, me demon, me kill blah blah blah and blah. Again, if you're only into the originals, then this is not for you.
I like Twilight because of the above reasons and I don't mind all the changes and there are lebih reasons.
The buku aren't TERRIBLE, but they aren't the best written, either. Who cares how well it's written? It's a good story that's fun to read. And for the people who are telling her she's wrong and she's stupid, Shut up. It's her opinion. (:
That is your personal opinion. Some people like the storyline, others...not so much. But anda shouldn't be bashing how they're written. In my opinion, they are wonderfully written! I'd like to see someone like anda try to beat Stephenie Meyer in a menulis contest.
