Ok. So here's the content of the article:

Stephen King On 'Twilight' Author: 'Stephenie Meyer Can't Write Worth A Darn'

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Stephen King's opinion may drive a stake through the heart of "Twilight" author, Stephenie Meyer.

In an interview with USA Weekend, the bestselling author compared Meyer with J.K. Rowling , the author of the Harry Potter series.

According to Stephen, "Both Rowling and Meyer, they're speaking directly to young people... The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good."

While Stephen may not be a fan of Stephenie's writing, he understands the appeal of the series.

"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."

~ Aww.. that's harsh. ;( Anyways, I'm not sure what he meant when he said "Jo is a terrific writer". I mean, terrific as in very bad? or magnificent?. *roll eyes* whatever. I think they're all good BUT Stephen King is the king! ;p

Dunno, I'd say that JK Rowling's writing style is a bit too simplistic and naive at times too.

I'm pretty sure he's not insulting Rowling or anything like that.

Stephan King is a good writer, though I think he puts too much detail sometimes. Stephanie Meyer writes as well as a 6th grade student and JK Rowling is a much better writer than her, though worse than King. My favorite writer is Dean Koontz who I think is an amazing writer.

I agree with him!!

JK Rowling was a good writer, you can tell, I mean she was an English teacher in England before Harry Potter!

Never read Meyer but Rowling is primitive as shite. Her "magic" books are all the same and language is like... she`s about 15! HP looks like fan-fic, not "serious" book. You may say it`s becoz for kids and what? Look at Andersen for example! His books are for children and they got morals and written amazing.
