'Edward was a vampire, yada yada... I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him'. You kidding me, Bella? This is... ridiculous.

What's with all these scenes that take place in a car? I don't like that; bad things can happen in cars... Like I said, he could just drive off with her, murder her and then bury her body somewhere and nobody would ever know...

Edward to Bella: "You're much more observant that I give you credit for." Either he has little to no expectations of her intelligence, or he's seeing something I'm not. Either way, darling Bella isn't exactly the sharpest bulb on the tree.

More of this eyecolor stuff? Am I the only one who finds frequent eye descriptions rather unnatural?

There was a scene kinda like this in Inception. Except Dom Cobb is so much cooler than Bella Swann, even though they both have bird names.

For some reason, it bothers me when dresses are referred to as 'numbers'.

Joy. More distant father stereotypes. As if there weren't enough already.

Bella's writing her paper on whether or not Shakespeare's views on women were misogynistic? Is Stephenie Meyer trying to be ironic here?

Celise I'm thoroughly enjoying your breakdown of this book. You forgot to mention the number of times she refers to the "smooth and hard muscles planes of his chest. I think that, had you read this before the hype you may have found it to be less... less.


Gemma Oh, definitely. I'm judging this more harshly than I would most other books because of that hype.

And what I'm not mentioning is that it's thoroughly enjoyable, in that shallow, semi-trashy way. It's obviously not quality literature, but... there's a certain addictiveness to it, even the second time through.


Celise I agree. And I think these books are a perfect example of authors dumbing things down in the belief that teenagers cannot read, because Stephenie Meyer CAN write, as is exemplified in The Host. If these authors would just write to their full capacity in teen novels, we would all have larger and more useful vocabularies.

Of course, this way the reading is quicker and therefore more enjoyable.
