Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
I finally read Twilight by Stephanie Meyers, which everyone's been raving about for months. I have to say, it was a pretty big disappointment. It read like a badly written, extremely cliched romance from FictionPress, and believe me, I've read enough of those to recognize one when I see it in horrifying print. The cheesiness and the cliches made me want to rip out the first 200 pages and rewrite it in its proper length, in ten words or so, and I was bored out of my mind. I did read on, and thankfully the last half of the book was much better, action replacing the romantic attempts, but I'm still wondering what people see in this book. I know plenty of FP writers (and the majority of Snapefic writers) who could have written the book so much better. It's a very disatisfying feeling.
Better go. Hopefully I'll find some time of my own to eventually write. Best wishes!
