Everything in this book fails.

This is a book that should not have gotten past publishers. It has every mistake a writer can make when writing a book, and for some reason they are left unfixed. Mary-sue and Gary-stu characters, extreme purple prose rape, one dimensional characters, CLICHES, bad grammar and general writing and NO PLOT (certainly no structure for one either).

Oh wait, apparently the plot is meant to be this plain and ordinary girl (cliche) falling in love with this gorgeous hunk (cliche) who is also a vampire (HA!) who has nothing in common with her other than an angsty obsession. So they fall in love in like a minute and live happily ever after (cliche).
Oh wait, there is conflict. Vampires come to join other vampires PLAYING BASEBALL and want to kill plain and ordinary girl (cliche) and hunky vampire (HA!) comes and saves the day (cliche).

This is just the kind of stuff you find on fanfiction.net. I have read Beyblade fanfics by thirteen year old girls with extreme crushes on Kai Hiwatari who have written stories that went along the same lines as Twishite did.

And don't give me that 'But it's popular! That MUST mean it's good!' crap. The only reason that this book is so popular is because it feeds the fantasies of teenage girls who are desperate as hell for their 'one true wuv who will dedicate their whole life to them and is like hot and chiseled and sensitive as hell and whispers Shakespeare in her ear every ten seconds and will never have sex with them and make them the center of his universe.
It's called a marketing strategy. Nothing else. Desperate tweenies will buy this kind of stuff and choke it down and buy more crap and choke it down.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

This book sucked. Stop glorifying this noob rubbish. Hell, Stephenie Meyer doesn't even like you, twitards. She treats you guys like you don't lick her boots properly.

Cory I'm still amazed that she got 700,000 dollars for a three book deal. And her agent wanted 1,000,000. It's a sick, sick world when this gets millions of dollars put into its franchise and other, much better books are practically ignored. For all the talk people do about good writing and appealing to agents, they're such liars. Anything goes if a money hungry agent with connections sees a dollar sign in your crap pile.

Mel The publishing industry, now more than ever, is just money hungry.

So Stephenie Meyer got $700,000 and J.K. Rowling only got $5000?
