yea...the plot was really way too fictional. but i guess we like it because of the danger and shit like that
i'd have to say, i was really disappointed in the ending of the series..nothing amazing happened.

Frankenstein if fiction. It still makes statements about men usurping the female procreation role and of postpartum depression. Shakespeare's works where fiction, and they all make bold statements about human nature. The Woman in White is a fiction. It makes arguments about women's rights and marriage in the 1800's. The point is, literature exists to make stances about ideals and to say something or influence the thought process of a people. Now, I've never read Twilight and I don't plan too, but while literature is to entertain, literature is a medium to make statements about human nature, don't forget that

how can she do research on vampires? they aren't real, the idea is she makes up her own world of vampires. so there is no need for background information she can make them up however she wants. i mean since this is cr. watch vampire knight..those vampires can eat food, sleep, and reproduce with humans or each other.

just because she jumps off a cliff because edward leaves her doesn't mean all 12-17 year old girls that read this series is going to be like " omg my boyfriend left me, i have to jump off a cliff like bella " thats a very stupid thing to say. not to mention offensive to anyone in that age group saying they just blindly do anything they see, hear, or in this case read. as if they are infants that just imitate everything they see.

and i don't think bella portrays a damsel in distress. its because of the fact that edward is a vampire, but he is a "vegan" vampire so other vampires that aren't vegan show up and they want to kill her and of course he isn't going to let them. she never acts afraid or begs for help. the cullen family just automatically helps because they want to.

when edward removes bella's engine from her car its not abusive. this isnt a human relationship. the reason he does this is because when she is with jacob, alice can't see bella's future anymore. so if someone like james or victoria came along and killed her they wouldn't be able to protect her. it is overprotective but not "abusive" its not like he was going to lock her in his house until she died. it was just for a day so he could go hunt without worrying about somebody coming to murder her.

breaking dawn..the part where she gets pregnant. again this is supposed to be a fictional story, vampires are fictional as well so she made it up that female humans could get pregnant with male vampires. it obviously would not follow typical human baby development. so logically the baby grows extremely fast, and has the strength of a vampire, so thats why she hurts bella since shes only human. and it may sound unsanitary for edward to just use his teeth to get the baby out, but im pretty sure vampire venom doesn't have germs? how can it live in venom? and he was turning her into a vampire anyways so she wouldn't have gotten sick. i mean edward had the spanish flu and was almost dying but when he turned into a vampire he wasn't sick anymore obviously.

sigh... even you said that but I like to read is because I like Edward... and not Bella...I don't care if Bella is going to die or even end up with Jacob but as long as Edward is still in the book! XD I only read the first book though! (and I haven't finished it yet!)

alright so get this straight first
1) I am not a vampire fangirl
2) I am not an Edward Fangirl (or jacob for that matter)
3) I'm very well read and have read many of the great classics of literature

regardless of all these things, i love the Twilight series. It's a lot less cheesy than most vampire books out there. It's a lot easier to relate to (putting aside the fantastic elements of it of course) than a lot of books out there.
I also think Meyer has a great sense of humor and has good imagery skills.
These books held my interest a LOT more than Harry Potter ever could. The plot was more exciting and a lot easier to visualize, which always helps to hold the audience better.

I personally know several people who because of Twilight got into literature itself after condemning reading as a boring unnecessary activity.

Well if you truly hate the twilight saga for that reason then you hate most anime because most anime have that whole damsel in distress thing going too. Some less obvious then other.
