Twilight

That horrible, mold ridden, trash can of a book can be summarized as follows:
Murmur, murmur, perfect, graceful, whisper, murmur, beautiful, murmur, flawless, murmur, murmur, MURMUR!!
I realize this book was not written for adults, but please, Stephanie Meyer, we're not low IQ, we can handle a new vocabulary word every now and then. He's beautiful, we get it!! You don't have to remind us every five seconds! And with all the murmuring, whispering, and muttering it's a wonder anybody in the book is able to understand each other at all! The only redeeming quality of this book is that it is sooooooo bad it is laughable. The nightly chapters have turned into heckling sessions. I have no idea what the deal is with people fanatically loving this book. I'm going to have to agree with Stephen King on this one:
Stephen King Says Stephenie Meyer Can't Write

by Elise Nersesian Feb 5th 2009

Recently, famed horror writer Stephen King sat down with journalist Lorrie Lynch from USA WEEKEND to talk about his career, his new collection of stories called Stephen King Goes to the Movies and his influence on popular authors today like J.K.Rowling and Stephenie Meyer.

"Both Rowling and Meyer, they're speaking directly to young people," he said. "The real difference is that J.K. Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good."


Of course, this is a clear case of the pot calling the kettle black because Stephen King sucks too.

Not only that but in every scene when there is the slightest facial expression change she describes it as "his eyes tightened." What? What the fuck does that look like? And why is it the only expression these guys seem to have?

I totally forgot to mention that!! The 'tight eyes' along with the occasional 'tight face' were the source of much speculation in my household as well.
