Amanda I was unaware that Meyer was ungrammatical at all, this is the first I'm heard of it.


message 2: by Angeline (new)

Angeline Petras I thought it was highly know that Meyer's writing style is ungrammatical and horrid.


message 3: by Amanda (new)

Amanda I was under the naive assumption that something very ungrammatical would not be published without editing :)


message 4: by Angeline (new)

Angeline Petras "I closed the door, slamming it really."
"The alabaster dog vivaciously ambled across the room."
"I suppose this was my form of sleep-- if sleep was defined as the inert state between active periods."
"Only four voices did I block out of courtesy rather than distaste..."
"My eyes fell on the phone."

She used the thesaurus far too much, and not only was some of her grammar done horrifically, but she has a terrible writing structure. Also, please don't get me started on her Mormon propaganda and how Bella is the worst female character that has been created in a very long time.


message 5: by Amanda (new)

Amanda I think the problem is that a lot of people write like they speak now without a thought for appropriateness. You could argue that if the novels were narrated by Bella, it is only natural that they are written in Bella's vernacular and I can see the logic for that - but judging from your examples, reading it would likely drive me wild! I've made a decision not to read any Meyer based on a reading of the first chapter of Twilight I once heard - too angsty for me...

message 7: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Twilight has the most shameful grammatical errors I have ever seen. It depresses me that her editors fail so much. . .


message 8: by Jiji (new)

Jiji What about J.R. Ward constantly writing "the both of" Grrrr...

"The alabaster dog vivaciously ambled across the room."
