Why do people like the series Twilight?

I don’t get it. Vampires aren’t real and it’s not that good. don’t get me wrong,i liked the movie but still, i don’t get the books. i like stuff like Aleister Crowley and Scott Cunningham.

  1. Two words, one name: Edward Cullen. Take him out and replace him with somebody as average as Bella was, and Twilight is non-existent.
    Edward made Stephenie Meyer a world-wide sensation.

  2. The books are much better than the movie! You actually get to be in Bella’s mind when you’re reading the books. I used to be a hardcore Twilight series fan but I got over it. Now that I look back, I realize that I only loved it so much because of Edward. I guess he was just perfect according to me and it gave me some hope or reassurance that guys like him exist. But it’s all just fantasy, he’s just a really interesting and appealing character. Vampires aren’t real, but it’s fun to imagine. Look at Harry Potter, wizards aren’t real either but the book has enchanted so many into its spell =)

  3. wish fulfillment. stephen king said it best:
    People are attracted by the stories, by the pace, and in the case of Stephenie Meyer, it’s very clear that she’s writing to a whole generation of girls and opening up kind of a safe joining of love and sex in those books. It’s exciting and it’s thrilling and it’s not particularly threatening because it’s not overtly sexual.”
    He further explains, “A lot of the physical side of it is conveyed in things like, the vampire will touch her forearm or run a hand over skin, and she just flushes all hot and cold. And for girls, that’s a shorthand for all the feelings that they’re not ready to deal with yet.”

  4. thank you!! I think Im gonna be able to come back to Books and Authors every once in a while, now that some people are standing up to Twilight!!
    I read all the books, was obsessed for a while, then all the girls in my High School ruined it for me, lol. I still see people wearing shirts with Twilight or Edward on them … makes me wanna puke.

  5. Some how, I’ll never know how because it’s one of the saddest attempts at writing and one of the poorest written novels ever and did I mention it’s the same plot all the way through, it became popular and almost everyone falls for the trends. They call it gothic horror and romance. Not gothic horror and a very crappy romance if you can even call it that.

  6. because it is SO good. i really didnt think i would like it, most fantasy books i HATE, and since it had to do with vampires i thought i would hate it, but its not anything like i thought it would be . it is seriously AMAZING!! :]] its more realistic fiction…with the fiction element of vampires and such

  7. because Bella and Edward’s relationship is strong and in my opinion, its pretty sweet and cute.
    Just because people read it, it doesnt mean that they believe in vampires.
    And some people BELIEVE in vampires

  8. Yes I know it’s not the best book out there, but it is one of the better ones. It’s clean, unlike so many romance books that are out now, yet mature enough. It’s a vampire book for those who don’t read vampire books, when you think vampire, you think sensuality, but Twilight isn’t so much sensual, but romantic all the same.

  9. i thought that too! but my friend forced me to read it and the whole saga is AHMAZIGGGG!!! like you get hooked! its not the fact of vanpired but the story line is incredible!
    hope i helped! <3
