    Have not, and after having read the synopsis for each of the books, I have less desire to read them then I did before.

    I like them just fine, though some were better than others.

    I voted 'no' but technically I've never read them, because I could never get through the beginning of the first book. :p

    Couldn't stand the writing style, and I've never been one for romance novels, teen or otherwise.

    I love them. [face_blush]
    (Although Breaking Dawn was a huge disappointment for me, I've come to terms with it now)


    And uh.....Stephenie was spelled wrong.

    Just sayin'. :-B

    Yes...except for the fact that Bella is a bit of a wimp and the second book was slow and boring.

    Personally, I don't care much for the vampire genre. I find the writing to be borderline juvenile and the plot sort of pointless. To me, this isn't really sci-fi. This doesn't belong with Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. [face_not_talking]

    If there was a "OK-ish" option, I would chosen that. So, I didn't vote...

    Really, the only reason I read the series is because I wanted to see for myself why so many girls were gushing over it...I stopped reading after Eclipse, and started reading again for some strange reason o_O

    Truthfully, I think the series was a little overrated...I mean, I bet I could probably write romance better than Stephanie Meyer...

    I love the Twilight series, but I really wish that she did some things differently in Breaking Dawn such as making Jacob imprint on Renesmee when he was just starting to establish a friendly relationship with Leah.:rolleyes: Ah well, there is always fanfiction.

    I like what I've read so far with the first book. It's not as enthralling as I assumed it would be, but it's a good read.

    No, it souds like a lame rip off of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, with Edward being a crappy version of Angel.

    i read a little of it and was so appalled by the writing i couldn't get past the first page. and considering i'll give a book at least a hundred to get good usually that's some pretty damn bad writing. it makes rowling look like a great writer, and that takes a lot of work.

    Yes, I love them! Although Breaking Dawn did let me down, I figure that the first book is so great that it makes up for it.

    World of Darkness > World of Twilight

    Caine, Theo Bell, Sasha Vikos, Beckett, Hardetstat, Lucita, Fatima, etc etc = Win
    Edward and his ilk= not so much

    I did try though, I read the first two books before giving up and resigning to the fact that they were never going to live up to my expectations of what Vampires should be like.

    I went for No.

    They were good I suppose, but didn't grip me like Harry Potter did.
    Mind you, I've read far far far worse.

    Do I like it? Yes. It's a very entertaining series that really sucks you in.


    Do I think it's good? Hell no. :p
