哈利·波特与暮光之城 问题

Should I read Twilight?

I've been thinking about it for a while, but I can't decide whether 或者 not I should go through with it and this seemed like a good place to ask.

The storyline doesn't really appeal to me, but on the other hand this book has had such an impact on people that I feel like I'm missing out somehow 由 not 阅读 it, if that makes sense. :/ I want to understand why people 爱情 it and why people hate it.

Also, I have plenty of free time this winter. So what do 你 guys think? Is it worth 阅读 或者 would it be a waste of time?

Hey, just thought I should let 你 all know that I have decided to read the series. I have actually already started 阅读 Twilight. At this early stage I neither 爱情 nor hate it - I'm trying to stay open-minded and give the book a fair chance. My goal is to understand the impact it has had on pop culture, and (who knows?) maybe even learn to enjoy a new type of fiction. Thank 你 all for your 建议 - it was really helpful. :)

NO. And yes, I HAVE read all the Twilight books. I never thought that I'll ever regret 阅读 a book, but if there are 图书 that I regret reading; they are Twilight and A House of Night. So just don't.

Personally, I wouldn't bother 阅读 it. I started the series in fifth grade; 由 the time I was halfway through the first book, I was ready to destroy the 下一个 person who told me how handsome Edward Cullen looked. But that's just my opinion. 你 might really enjoy that sort of literature. A lot of people do; I'm just not one of them. I haven't read the whole saga (again, I got sick of it before I even finished the first installment), so I'm probably not the best judge. So do what you'd like, and remember that 你 don't have to keep 阅读 if 你 really don't like it.

(And if 你 haven't read them yet, 你 should also consider the Harry Potter books. Do I realize that I'm a biased fanatic? Of course. Do I care? Not on your life. But again, make your own decision about what to read. I'm no literary expert, so I don't expect 你 to take my opinion as some sort of divine ruling 或者 anything ridiculous like that.)

Thanks for your help. :) Yeah, I don't think I'll like this kind of fiction either; that's what really puts me off. I have read Harry Potter - 爱情 it!! I might still take your suggestion on board though, and re-read them all again. xD

Firstly, I'm a book lover and I will pick up ANY book and read it - not because I think I'll like it but to critique it. That is the main reason I read Twilight - and even though I did not like it, I went on to read the whole saga and came out of the experience as an avid Twilight hater. The 作者 sucks. period. I won't go through the whole fiasco of why-twilight-is-doomed-to-hell because I assume you've alredy heard the whole story.

That all said, 你 SHOULD read Twilight. It will give 你 an experience of what it is, help 你 to realize that yes, there are people who write,read and like these stuff and anyways how can 你 how can 你 agree/disagree with what people say about it, criticize it 或者 praise it (though if 你 do, I must say I'd have 迷失 a whole deal of respect for you) if 你 haven't read it?

Go for it I say -but 你 have been warned!!!!

Am I the only Twilight "hater" encouraging 你 to read it?

I actually think 你 should. If 你 end up liking it, good for you. If 你 end up hating it, congratulations, 你 can now form legitimate reasons for disliking it, unlike most other haters on the Internet! Win-win situation either way.

I think for first step 你 should ask someone, who was 阅读 those books, did they like it? And if yes, then why? Ask as many possible people before 你 decide read 或者 not. Try to figure out what kind of people read those books, oh well if 你 will start and after 小时 of reading, its not getting better 或者 not quite interesting, just stop it. And well that will be proof that 你 too good for those 图书 :)

As for my own opinion, believe me, 你 missing nothing, those 图书 are for super sweet, sensitive, hormonal teenagers with lot of fluffy, sparkling things around them every time and everywhere. :) I tried to read this 年 ago.

Do whatever 你 want.

But fair warning, If 你 plan on sharing your opinions on Twilight (which, for some reason, 你 have) it would be wise to actually read it.
It only plays into the too common "Well I bet 你 haven't even read it" argument. You're the perfect example of that.
After looking through your 民意调查 答案 and your comments, it just confuses me...
I mean, really, how could 你 possibly know anything about Renesmee, not even watching the 电影院 can help 你 know anything, considering BD part 2 isn't out yet.


Until 你 read the books, you're only making uneducated opinions. Nothing more, nothing less.
If 你 want 更多 than that, then yes, read the books.

*Doffs hat* Ahh, but 你 would be surprised at my powers of deduction. I am a veritable Sherlock Holmes. xD However, on a 更多 serious note, I am truly very sorry if I have ever 说 anything offensive 或者 out of line about Twilight; it was never my intention to upset people. Thanks for your 建议 - 你 have a very reasonable approach which I will certainly consider carefully. :)

Read them. Don't listen to what everyone is saying. The 图书 are actually not all that bad. All four of them got really good reviews. Try it out, 你 might like it :) Hell, 你 might even like it over Harry Potter. One tip that'll really help 你 out while 阅读 them: don't give up. Those 图书 get draggy as hell (ESPECIALLY New Moon and Breaking Dawn) just keep reading. Shit gets real in the last 200 pages (except Breaking Dawn).

No problem, I actually do go see the 电影院 and stuff, as it really does help when trying to debat things. If 你 plan on dabating here 阅读 Twilight would help that and 你 may find something 你 like in the process.

It doesn't sound as if it's the kind of book 你 would enjoy reading. It is however a very 流行的 series that seems to incite strong polarised reactions. So I'd say yes, go ahead and read it. It's become part of pop culture so being able to understand the references to it might be helpful. Watching the 电影院 might be another option if 你 find you're not enjoying 阅读 the 图书 as they're reasonably faithful to the books

If 你 have a learning disability that makes 阅读 hard for 你 或者 你 have a tendency to pick out grammar errors I actually suggest not 阅读 the book simply because it isn't well written and it can turn into a struggle to read for some people.

My teacher told me that every book is worth 阅读 no matter how bad it is. 你 need to decide whether it is your cup of 茶 或者 not and not pick it up because it is the latest fad.

yes I think 你 should read them I like the series, but everybody has diffrent opinions, some people just don't read them cause they think there 老友记 won't like them anymore 或者 they think there too cool to read them, I thought the same thing before I read them, but my mom read them and 说 they were really good so I read them 1 由 1 and when I was done I told my 老友记 abought the 图书 (some of them are not twilight fans) and they thought it was ok and there still my 老友记 today.

I would say read them. I mean, if 你 don't like them, fine, but at least 你 can then come on here and give a fair opinion of them, which 你 can't do without having read them.
If 你 like them, great! You've just read a good book, and it may pleasantly surprise you. With me personally, I'm not really a big 粉丝 of romance novels, but I did really enjoy the Twilight series.
Regardless, 你 could always just read them to see what all the hype is about. I mean, they are quite popular.

But if 你 do read them, I would advise 你 to put aside all biases 你 may have, and ignore what other people say about it, so that 你 can just read the 图书 in an unbiased way, and give them a fair chance. If that makes sense, :)

Mrs-X said:
If 你 watched the 电影院 and liked them, then you'll definitely 爱情 阅读 the books. If 你 didn't like the movies, 你 might still 爱情 阅读 the books.

Being a Twilight and Harry Potter 粉丝 who's not too crazy about romance (to say the least), I loved 阅读 the 图书 and didn't think it was a waste of time at all. Twilight's not only a 爱情 story, it's about 邪恶力量 creatures and friendship too. It actually made me laugh a couple of times too.

I honestly recommend it to you. At least, try 阅读 the first book and if 你 don't like it, 你 can stop but if 你 so, it keeps getting better. When I try to remember what I read in the books, 邪恶力量 creatures are the first thing that comes to my mind so as I 说 before, the whole 爱情 story between Edward and Bella is the main storyline but there's so much stuff happening around them and so many characters to discover that it becomes very interesting and fun to read.

I really enjoyed the 图书 and I hope 你 will read them and get into the story like I did. It's a saga that made me feel sad when I realised I had finished 阅读 it and closed the last book. Please give it a try ;)!

Good answer. When people talk about Twilight they focus so much on Edward and Bella's romance that I think the rest of the story sometimes gets forgotten, so I'm liking your 描述 of it. Great stuff. :D Thank you. I think I might give it a try. :)

Don't worry, I was joking. I see myself as the "hostess" of this question, so I created a polite and somewhat jocular response to Ireynolds' answer in order to appear friendly. That is all. :) In reality I doubt I'll do much 更多 than throw the book across the room, if it even comes to that (unlikely, since I don't have much of a temper).
