Should I read Twilight?

I've been thinking about it for a while, but I can't decide whether 또는 not I should go through with it and this seemed like a good place to ask.

The storyline doesn't really appeal to me, but on the other hand this book has had such an impact on people that I feel like I'm missing out somehow 의해 not 읽기 it, if that makes sense. :/ I want to understand why people 사랑 it and why people hate it.

Also, I have plenty of free time this winter. So what do 당신 guys think? Is it worth 읽기 또는 would it be a waste of time?

Hey, just thought I should let 당신 all know that I have decided to read the series. I have actually already started 읽기 Twilight. At this early stage I neither 사랑 nor hate it - I'm trying to stay open-minded and give the book a fair chance. My goal is to understand the impact it has had on pop culture, and (who knows?) maybe even learn to enjoy a new type of fiction. Thank 당신 all for your 조언 - it was really helpful. :)

NO. And yes, I HAVE read all the Twilight books. I never thought that I'll ever regret 읽기 a book, but if there are 책 that I regret reading; they are Twilight and A House of Night. So just don't.

Personally, I wouldn't bother 읽기 it. I started the series in fifth grade; 의해 the time I was halfway through the first book, I was ready to destroy the 다음 person who told me how handsome Edward Cullen looked. But that's just my opinion. 당신 might really enjoy that sort of literature. A lot of people do; I'm just not one of them. I haven't read the whole saga (again, I got sick of it before I even finished the first installment), so I'm probably not the best judge. So do what you'd like, and remember that 당신 don't have to keep 읽기 if 당신 really don't like it.

(And if 당신 haven't read them yet, 당신 should also consider the Harry Potter books. Do I realize that I'm a biased fanatic? Of course. Do I care? Not on your life. But again, make your own decision about what to read. I'm no literary expert, so I don't expect 당신 to take my opinion as some sort of divine ruling 또는 anything ridiculous like that.)

Thanks for your help. :) Yeah, I don't think I'll like this kind of fiction either; that's what really puts me off. I have read Harry Potter - 사랑 it!! I might still take your suggestion on board though, and re-read them all again. xD

Firstly, I'm a book lover and I will pick up ANY book and read it - not because I think I'll like it but to critique it. That is the main reason I read Twilight - and even though I did not like it, I went on to read the whole saga and came out of the experience as an avid Twilight hater. The author sucks. period. I won't go through the whole fiasco of why-twilight-is-doomed-to-hell because I assume you've alredy heard the whole story.

That all said, 당신 SHOULD read Twilight. It will give 당신 an experience of what it is, help 당신 to realize that yes, there are people who write,read and like these stuff and anyways how can 당신 how can 당신 agree/disagree with what people say about it, criticize it 또는 praise it (though if 당신 do, I must say I'd have 로스트 a whole deal of respect for you) if 당신 haven't read it?

Go for it I say -but 당신 have been warned!!!!

I actually think 당신 should. If 당신 end up liking it, good for you. If 당신 end up hating it, congratulations, 당신 can now form legitimate reasons for disliking it, unlike most other haters on the Internet! Win-win situation either way.

I think for first step 당신 should ask someone, who was 읽기 those books, did they like it? And if yes, then why? Ask as many possible people before 당신 decide read 또는 not. Try to figure out what kind of people read those books, oh well if 당신 will start and after 시간 of reading, its not getting better 또는 not quite interesting, just stop it. And well that will be proof that 당신 too good for those 책 :)

As for my own opinion, believe me, 당신 missing nothing, those 책 are for super sweet, sensitive, hormonal teenagers with lot of fluffy, sparkling things around them every time and everywhere. :) I tried to read this 년 ago.

Do whatever 당신 want.

But fair warning, If 당신 plan on sharing your opinions on Twilight (which, for some reason, 당신 have) it would be wise to actually read it.
It only plays into the too common "Well I bet 당신 haven't even read it" argument. You're the perfect example of that.
After looking through your 투표 답변 and your comments, it just confuses me...
I mean, really, how could 당신 possibly know anything about Renesmee, not even watching the 영화 can help 당신 know anything, considering BD part 2 isn't out yet.


Until 당신 read the books, you're only making uneducated opinions. Nothing more, nothing less.
If 당신 want 더 많이 than that, then yes, read the books.

Read them. Don't listen to what everyone is saying. The 책 are actually not all that bad. All four of them got really good reviews. Try it out, 당신 might like it :) Hell, 당신 might even like it over Harry Potter. One tip that'll really help 당신 out while 읽기 them: don't give up. Those 책 get draggy as hell (ESPECIALLY New Moon and Breaking Dawn) just keep reading. Shit gets real in the last 200 pages (except Breaking Dawn).

It doesn't sound as if it's the kind of book 당신 would enjoy reading. It is however a very 인기 series that seems to incite strong polarised reactions. So I'd say yes, go ahead and read it. It's become part of pop culture so being able to understand the references to it might be helpful. Watching the 영화 might be another option if 당신 find you're not enjoying 읽기 the 책 as they're reasonably faithful to the books

If 당신 have a learning disability that makes 읽기 hard for 당신 또는 당신 have a tendency to pick out grammar errors I actually suggest not 읽기 the book simply because it isn't well written and it can turn into a struggle to read for some people.

My teacher told me that every book is worth 읽기 no matter how bad it is. 당신 need to decide whether it is your cup of 차 또는 not and not pick it up because it is the latest fad.

I would say read them. I mean, if 당신 don't like them, fine, but at least 당신 can then come on here and give a fair opinion of them, which 당신 can't do without having read them.
If 당신 like them, great! You've just read a good book, and it may pleasantly surprise you. With me personally, I'm not really a big 팬 of romance novels, but I did really enjoy the Twilight series.
Regardless, 당신 could always just read them to see what all the hype is about. I mean, they are quite popular.

But if 당신 do read them, I would advise 당신 to put aside all biases 당신 may have, and ignore what other people say about it, so that 당신 can just read the 책 in an unbiased way, and give them a fair chance. If that makes sense, :)

If 당신 watched the 영화 and liked them, then you'll definitely 사랑 읽기 the books. If 당신 didn't like the movies, 당신 might still 사랑 읽기 the books.

Being a Twilight and Harry Potter 팬 who's not too crazy about romance (to say the least), I loved 읽기 the 책 and didn't think it was a waste of time at all. Twilight's not only a 사랑 story, it's about 수퍼내츄럴 creatures and friendship too. It actually made me laugh a couple of times too.

I honestly recommend it to you. At least, try 읽기 the first book and if 당신 don't like it, 당신 can stop but if 당신 so, it keeps getting better. When I try to remember what I read in the books, 수퍼내츄럴 creatures are the first thing that comes to my mind so as I said before, the whole 사랑 story between Edward and Bella is the main storyline but there's so much stuff happening around them and so many characters to discover that it becomes very interesting and fun to read.

I really enjoyed the 책 and I hope 당신 will read them and get into the story like I did. It's a saga that made me feel sad when I realised I had finished 읽기 it and closed the last book. Please give it a try ;)!

Good answer. When people talk about Twilight they focus so much on Edward and Bella's romance that I think the rest of the story sometimes gets forgotten, so I'm liking your 설명 of it. Great stuff. :D Thank you. I think I might give it a try. :)
