Marilu I am not the biggest fan of Stephen King's work as it just isn't my preferred type of reading, however I have a great deal of respect for anyone that is as talented as he is. I think anyone, fan or not, must admit that he is an exceptional writer. I have enjoyed a few of his books. I opened Twilight by Stephanie Meyer but it just couldn't grab my attention. In my opinion it is a terrible book.
His response was was great! I loved it.....and think I may just pick up one of his books again.


Zehra Hahaha! Well said.

Natasha that was SO FUNNY

thank you!

look you guys, it really doesn't matter if you like stephen or not, i personally don't care, but the fact that someone put stephanie meyers in her place makes them awesome.

of course, this isn't stephen king.

Eric You gotta love sarcasm!

Allison amusing, but desperately needs a popscreen


message 17: by Andy

Andy Jones rofl in fact i was laughing so hard that my first attempt at writing ROFL turned out like -- ROLF

that said tho... think he is being a little harsh, gotta give Meyer some credit to writing a book that has been well received by a very large audience!

Still; think Stephen King is the better writer!


message 18: by Timothy

Timothy James Dean Well, this is funny and creative. Of course, Ms. Meyer's legion of young women-panting-for-undead-boyfriends don't have to worry. This is obviously NOT Stephen King in this video. Even the description on You Tube by the poster, "auraldemolition" says so: "This video is meant for entertainment purposes, and may not represent Mr. King's actual views."


message 19: by K

K Kraushaar =) Well said, Uncle Stevie. Thank you for being honest about the Twilight phenomenon and pointing out the fallacies of reasoning that make otherwise-rational people accuse you of jealousy.

Jess "I have decided against releasing The Dome, instead turning it into some shit about pedophile vampires. Maybe then it will be considered an AMAZING BOOK" :) Haha. He's so awesome.


Michelle This is amazing!


Chantelle HAHHAHAHA! Harsh, but true.

Anu Harchu What the heck! Totally not cool.


message 26: by Samira

Samira I am not a big fan of Twilight but i must say Stephen King crossed the line when he made this video. The ending bit when he says Twilight is "An Amazing Book" in a exaggerated, computerized voice several times in a row made me cringe for Stephnie Meyer. Poor Lady! It was just plain cruel. No writer deserves that kind of treatment or judgement from another writer. We already know he is an amazing writer so he does not need to shove his many accomplishments in our faces in this video. He did not need to make this childish video to prove his point. This video only made him sound like an arrogent jerk who needs to eat some humblepie. SHAME ON HIM!!!!

you know, it's ok if you can only read at a first grade level. the rest of us enjoy reading with higher standards. :D


message 29: by Emily

Emily Take some deep breaths Alexis. Exhibit A of why a lot of people don't like twilight: fan girls writing angrily in ALL CAPS online...


Christine I am grateful to Stephanie Meyer for bring many JH girls into the library who wouldn't otherwise be there. When they have plowed through her books, they have figured out how great it is to loose yourself in a book. JK Rowling had the same effect. I am as sick of sparklepires as the next person, but I am so grateful for the book addicted readers Meyer has created.


★ Jess I love it how the people defending TWILIGHT, and paying out SK, probably havent even read one of his books.

Now, as a 14 year old girl, i used to love the TWILIGHT books. Before the movies screwed it up.
Though honestly, Meyer is an awful writer. Interesting story, yes.
Good writer, no.

King was right.

April*procrastinator and proud* King... YOU ARE AMAZING!! AND AWESOME!
screw Stephanie Meyer and her crappy writing.

Yes, you're right! I also love the Twilight Saga and hate Stephen King's books! Thank you for writing all this! Keep fighting, I'll be with you!!!


message 35: by JMZ

JMZ Interesting. There's just something about Stephen King's sarcasm, especially toward the end, that just made me giggle. I'm not a big fan of Stephen King but the few books written by him that I have read were more enjoyable than the Twilight saga but everyone has different tastes so might as well leave it be.


message 36: by Robert

Robert Machulla LMAO this is great! and yea, anyone who actually thinks thats King talking is just... someone who would probably love Twilight lol, I have heard its badly written plus the obvious ridiculous plot and story, blah. I think Meyer should read King's wonderful guide to writing "On Writing", so should everyone else ‡->

I can't stop laughing. I like the Twilight books,but Stephen King's books are GREAT.


message 46: by Marieh

Marieh Stephen king rocks!


message 47: by Andrea

Andrea Mejia hahaha it was funny but I don´t have nothing against Stephenie Meyer or Stephen King. Actually, what I hate about the twilight stuff is that now every novel, movie, tv program and pop stuff I see is about vampires in love!!! I guess that now many people think that they´re true vampire fans, but I can guess that they haven´t read Bram Stoker, Lord Byron or Anne Rice(which in my opinion are the best writers of vampire stories), and the don´t know who´s Vlad Tepes or Erszebeth Bathory, people who were supposed to be vampires on real life. And I think I understand mr King. He is the master of horror!! Obviously if he saw a novel about lovely "vegetarian" vampires he wouldn´t be so happy. Anyway, that was rude to Meyer, I think that every writer would like to see his or her novel having success.


message 48: by Kelly

Kelly Whahahahahah!!! I love you mr King :D


message 49: by Mark

Mark Valid points all..., but I have to agree with the person that said it doesn't sound like King's voice. Combined with the fact that it's just a still picture of King with a voice-over makes me wonder if it was actually a response from S.K.
I may well be mistaken, but I'm ever the skeptic...


message 50: by Brent

Brent McGregor Howling funny, but how can you compare a series written with the 13 year old girl in mind to an author who writes ADULT books? (most) Everything that attracts a teenage girl will be shallow drama.

The fact that King and Meyers have so little in common as writers makes whoever recorded this sound truculent.

Besides, I'm in the camp that believes this is not Steven King's voice.

Nice try.

Still funny.
