Well, I agree with you, they're not really well written and the story is sometimes too predictable. Nevertheless, wewe should understand that most people don't really care for the uandishi 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 Wanyonya damu that we see in Twilight now. That is, in my opinion, the most appealing side of these books. The fact that it includes a upendo 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 upendo 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 Marafiki until something unusual happens to her, which could happen to all of us. So I guess that those are the reasons why most people upendo Twilight even though, in my opinion, it is terribly written, like wewe 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 vitabu Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn." This is not an appropriate swali for this spot.
Secondly, I loved the vitabu zaidi 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 wewe have any reasons why wewe 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 wewe haven't?
Fifthly, They are not badly written, in my opinion.
Consider what I said, and answer my maswali 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 wewe mean kwa that exactly? If it is because it's written in everyday English, I actually think that's wonderful, aliyopewa the fact that they're vitabu for young adults.
Based on my experience, the zaidi 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 kusoma for fun, anyway??
Now, if you're referring to the story structure AND character development, I do acknowledge that wewe 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 wewe criticize a work so harshly, wewe 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 wewe can prove wewe can do better. Let's see wewe write a 4-book saga better than Stephenie.
People like it because Bella is basically a place holder for every teenage girl kusoma 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 wewe 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 wewe 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 Wanyonya damu unique. I agree, though, that it could have been better written.
ITS NOT THE WAY THE vitabu ARE WRITTEN THAT EVERYONE HAS FALLEN IN upendo 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 vitabu are wonderful, they're not terrible. If they're terrible, why do a lot of people like them? I think wewe should read them, and think about their contents again. And I think wewe shouldn't ask this swali 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 au 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 upendo 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 wewe want to keep kusoma which I think is the most important part!=D Perhaps, if wewe haven't read them go to your local maktaba and at least TRY Twilight...by the way if wewe think they're terribly written why post such a swali 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 upendo so I am completely imbedded in their upendo hoping that my upendo could be like that and that i will find true love. Another factor is the ndoto 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 wewe why i upendo these books.
So what if they are terribly written they tell a story never the less, and that is worth kusoma 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 au listen to and that it appeals to someone in some way. I upendo 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 Marafiki 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 wewe can only talk for yourself. I think that the reason I like the Twilight saga, is because of Stephenie Meyer's very uniqu viewof Wanyonya damu and their society. It's unlike anything else and very original. I like that she has ignorered almost everything wewe think a vampire is au 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 wewe combine it with teenage love, wewe have something no one has ever thoght of before. But as I alisema to begin with, kusoma 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 vitabu (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 wewe 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 upendo 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 vitabu is getting on my nerves.
I think I found my answer when someone alisema 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 zaidi convincingly.)
First off, i'd like to say that everyone who is simply saying that the vitabu are great and that's it are no better than the person who posed a perfectly reasonable swali (of course it could have been zaidi tactfully asked aliyopewa that this is a foramu for lovers 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 alisema here. The uandishi 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 ndoto not that it's fantastic) and it's just the same as the Harry Potter craze (which in my opinion was zaidi 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 wewe in! Its all a matter of taste =)
I'm also confused -- WHY do wewe think that these vitabu are badly written? Do wewe have reasons so wewe 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 vitabu with a complex uandishi style is 'heavy reading'. Not everything has to be heavy, wewe know. Sometimes it's nice to read something that is written in the same way that the characters would actually SAY them. These vitabu are written in Bella's point of view - a modern 17 mwaka old girl. Would she speak with a sophisticated tongue? No. So, that's why I'm confused as to your question. Stephenie's uandishi 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 vitabu so I can't maoni on how great written they were.But in vitabu it is not just the uandishi takes wewe in.If the story make wewe feel good make wewe feel like wewe own the story and if wewe can feel the characters I consider that as a great book.And twilight was just one of those few vitabu 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 upendo the upendo between all the Wanyonya damu an i upendo how true jacob is to bella when he know he cant have her moyo bcuz edward has it but hes faithfull an i upendo da faithfull ness an upendo hahahaha dats it its not a TERRIBLY written book its a FANTASTIC book^^
First off, they aren't terribly written and if wewe think they are wewe 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 mashabiki 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 , sekunde if wewe read them wewe 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 wewe hate it so much why the hell are wewe post something on the twilight section of fanpop so wewe know what 1) GET A LIFE 2)LEAVE US TWILIGHTERS ALONE & 3) GO SCREW YURSDELF
I personally think wewe 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 wewe 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 upendo 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.
OMG! this is a shabiki site! if ur not a shabiki of it u dont have to write something terrible about twilight!! I upendo TWILIGHT! I have read each book 3 times! wewe dont have to critize twilight u idiot!
×)×)×)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 punda MOTHER FUCKER YOUR AN A.S.S W.H.O.L.E STUPID punda bitch, kahaba its really mean 2 do what your doing just trying to piss us off your a FREAK im soo sorry twilight mashabiki 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 vitabu hes just doing it to piss us all off But i alisema 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 wewe 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 wewe are a totally massive LOSER which wewe are because how can wewe not absolutly upendo 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 ametoa maoni on here, but some of wewe just need to calm down. I upendo Twilight, I adore it. I am however, not going to threaten this person's life for disagreeing with me. I do agree that if wewe don't like Twilight, wewe should be on the spot, but hujambo , oh well. Stephenie Meyer has alisema 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 alisema "No one was zaidi 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 vitabu broke the rules is one of the many reasons why they're so loved. What about Piacasso? wewe think he wasn't insulted? wewe 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. wewe say Stephenie Meyer is "a terrible writer", I say that she is the best writer for the reasons that wewe 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 wewe REALLY BLAME THEM FOR NOT WANTING TO JOIM US? wHEN WE'RE SAYING THINGS LIKE "I HOPE wewe ROT IN HELL FOR NOT LIKING THIS BOOK!!!" AND "I'M GOING TO FIND OUT WHERE wewe LIVE AND COME KILL YOU!!!" CAN wewe REALLY BLAME THEM FOR THINKING WE'RE CRAZY? LOVES XOXOXO -BRINNA
I hate people whp put these srupid maswali on a shabiki website about what there making fun of. The vitabu are fantastic and if wewe don't like them wewe should leave this club because this is a club abouta twilight were we like the sinema as much as the terrific books!
Your terribly written. We have our opinions, wewe have yours. And if your gonna be a mean person about it, then wewe can just go stick it in your juisi box and suck on it!! Cause we Twi-hards upendo Twilight and we don’t care what anybody thinks au says about it. The story is a beautiful upendo 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, au why we like the things we like, au what anyone else thinks of what we like? why do wewe not like the book? because wewe don't like the way it's written. wewe just don't. why do i like this book? because it captured my imagination, well written au not. i like it, the other people on this spot like it, we are going to like it, even if wewe don't. so why do wewe care if we like it au not? it has no effect on wewe in any way. do wewe care about why people like muziki wewe don't like? no, it's just their preference. it really does not matter why we like these vitabu au why wewe don't. it's just a matter of personal taste, and everyone has their own personal taste. frankly, wewe asking this question, is a complete waste of time. it should be simple enough for someone who can criticize uandishi 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 vitabu to be written better despite being written kwa an average American woman who was not even intending to publish 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 maoni 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 vitabu grow up in better uandishi 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 upendo 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 shabiki club
Well like to put up my dislike of Twilight on Twilight mashabiki sites because that way I get a debate.(Which I enjoy a lot) I find it zaidi interesting to debate 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 upendo Twilight but its not my favorite. that would be Morganville Vampire series kwa 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 wewe get offended if someone express their opinion?
Why are wewe on this fansite if wewe think that. Just make an antiTwilight club and then wewe can post things on there. au are wewe trying to make people mad? I don't really care either way but there are some Twlight crazy mashabiki 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 upendo with a vampire and has a shapeshifter as a best friend. I'm addicted but oh well I think they're good books. But wewe 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 wewe come to this spot to just start a war and get attention. wewe have the C.A.T. spot. where wewe 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. wewe have no business being here. wewe can't just leave the twilight mashabiki alone. wewe just have to come here and piss people off cause wewe think its "fun". wewe sir, are a very sad person.
I get that everyone can't like the same things but wewe really should NOT post a swali 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 au WHY is Twilight terribly written? What makes a good book to wewe and why is Twilight not it? If wewe tell me that then I can answer your swali fairly.
I will admit that after kusoma 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 au stressed au whatever, when I read The Twilight Saga, I completely forgot about them all and became a part of the story, wewe 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 siku 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 au something new, then Twilight is not for wewe but it's nice to try something new.
Then there is mtu-bweha 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 Wanyonya damu 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 zaidi reasons.
The vitabu 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 wewe shouldn't be bashing how they're written. In my opinion, they are wonderfully written! I'd like to see someone like wewe try to beat Stephenie Meyer in a uandishi contest.
