I was wondering if anyone doesn't like the series? I didn't want to go into a fan thread of the series and make people mad or anything with my opinions on it.
I read all four books, and I find the writing very purply. Theres also a lot of repeative words such as "chagrin,dazzling,beautiful". I don't need to hear how beautiful Edward is every five sentences. But when I start a series I have to finish it. I thought hey maybe it will get better, but I was wrong. As I read each book I found some very disturbing messages. I thought Edward's character was very controlling, posessive, stalkerish, and emotionally abusive. I find it sad young girls are thinking this is ok because Edward is like so hot. No it's not ok, and it disturbs me. I thought Bella was a huge Mary Sue, and she complained through out every book. She also had a stuck up attitude towards people who wanted to befriend her, and guys who were interested in her. The two main characters aren't likable at all. They never grow with each book, and they never develop or change. The sparkling vampires:nono she just made every vampire fanatic enraged. Anyways back to the disturbing messages. I also find the books sexist, anti feminism, Pedophilla (with the imprinting). I don't find Bella to be a strong female character she's always hiding behind Edward. She doesn't fight for anything, she gets it all handed to her on silver platter. The series is all about wish fullfilment, and the author is a self insertion of Bella.
I also think the author of this series is very immature, and needs to take some constructive critisim. She also should take a good look at her characters before bashing other authors characters. The "I wrote for myself" excuse when people didn't like the last installment of her Twilight series is getting old. She needs to grow up, and stop acting like a child. If she wrote for herself she should of kept it that way.
So anyone else have a similiar opinion?
