Is Twilight over rated?

Yes, it so is!

Yes. I hated it, but I understand why lots of people, particularly teenage girls, are so fanatic about it. However, it is still a pretty trashy series with very few redeeming qualities and I think it will be forgotten fairly quickly.

Side: Yes, it so is!

Twilight is a a fad. It will die quicker than you think. It does not have qualities that will stand out in the long run.

Twilight caused all of these vampire movies and new books and new TV shows and that always gets on my nerves.

NO Twilight isn't over rated. i think that people who say they dislike it, the book probably wasn't their genre or something! i think some people don't realize exactly what she put in the book. if a Mormon reads the book they spot a lot of things that are good and the standards that people push aside and think are dumb and stupid. i think Stephanie Meyer used her writing skills to add apart of her to the book because she is Mormon. She really sets standards in those books that usually aren't even used in a world today for some people and i think it was really great that a popular book that i can really look at and say "wow!" holds those standards is just amazing!!!! Thank You Stephanie Meyer!!!!

OK, as a die hard reader, I can tell you that this series does not even come close to living up to the caliber of books it is compared to. Such as Harry Potter and Lord of The Rings. I have read all four of the twilight and here is my evaluation:

The first book she falls madly in love at 17 and in a matter of months! She is so in love with him that she lies and hides things from her dad. Oh and he sneaks in to her bedroom without her dad knowing to stare at her sleep(creepy!). Great moral there. I see your point. LOL

The second book, he breaks her heart, sending her into severe depression which makes her do unsafe and crazy things just so he can "hear his voice again". It also leads to her leading on a younger guy who she has no intention of every being with. Then, the guy goes to kill himself thinking she is dead and she lies to everyone again to go save the guy who abandoned her in a forest! While saving him, they commit grand theft auto. Once again, great moral teaching.

The third book is spent in mortal danger which she never chooses to tell anyone. Better book than the first two though.

Then the 4th. Now we talk about writing quality. There is no real conflict. She gets married and pregnant. Big deal! Then the author leads you to believe there will be this huge conflict between the Cullens and the volturi which just turns in to a verbal pissing contest for like 125 pages. The volturi is scared off and leaves. 750 pages of dribble.

So lets list the "great standards" this book teaches

1) Its OK to lie to your parents if its for love.

2) Its OK to commit grand theft auto as long as its a good cause

3) If a boy breaks your heart at 18 its perfectly normal to almost kill yourself and refuse to ever move on and he probably left you because he really cares

4) While said boy is away, it is OK to hang out with a guy who clearly wants more than friendship and let him do things for you even though you know his intentions

5) If you really love someone, you will sneak into their house without anyone knowing just to stare at them sleep.

6) If your boyfriends brother tries to kill you, causing you to break bones and have your arm ripped to shreds, you should tell your mom and dad it was just you falling down the stairs cuz of your clumsiness! Works great for abuse victims.

Wow! I see your point. Bottom line, not a bad read, way overrated!
