I have read the above mentioned book - Anything for you ma'am. And I agree it was a bit over hyped, but it was like theek hain yaar, chalta hain read, when you have nothing else to read.

IMO, Twilight IS the MOST over rated book EVER! At first I thought that maybe the book would be worth the craze, but when I actually read the entire thing, i was like, Gah, THIS is the reason for people's CRAZINESS?

@bold:
1.It's not really a love story. It's about how much Bella loves Edward's "perfect" face.
2. Bella is a Mary-Sue character.
3.Meyer's language is very repetitive. I've explained this point on a previous post in this thread.
4. I never understood Edward and how he fell for Bella. Actually, did he ever?
5. Sometimes it becomes too cheesy to tolerate.
6. If it were published in the 18th century, then seeing how Edward saves Bella and how he protects her and how Bella gives a damn about nothing but him would have made me blush and drool and go crazy over Edward Cullen. (If IF had exisited at that time, my username would have been MrsEdwardCullen
Unfortunately, Stephenie came in a little late. Guess what? It's the 21st century. Women have careers. Women do not think that husbands are their gods. Women are independent.
And thus, I can only puke when I read the Saga and not drool; the characters are primitive, backward, weak.

That is just 25% of the reasons why I find the Twilight Saga plain trash.If I have time, I'll edit the post and put in the remaining 75% reasons as well.

I haven't read the Twilight series myself (nor do I plan to) but from what I have heard, they are a major let down in terms of their hype.
