    after watching the first part of the last book i got so horrified i didn't want to watch the second part...but my boyfriend made me watch it all the same, it was horrible: we spent the whole film whining about how bad and stupid and annoying and and and and, it just sucks...seriously...just seeing kristin steward makes me depressed...and the films are even better than the books (which i think, in general, is never a good sign)..i have seen all films, but finishing the first book....i will never never never complete the series.

    with better i mean: less horrible

    well i read every book of twilight and have to say i was little younger but really liked them when i watched the first movie it was awesome and i kinda enjoyed it when i saw the second movie it was little annoying in the end and at the beggining something happend but the rest was horrible (i also skipped these chapters in book) so somehow i think you cant really resist hating this story because it is a good idea really but could´ve been developed better ^^

    Did you read them in german? The writing in translations is better than the original american English (I preferred it in french to English).
    And I did really enjoy reading it back when I was 13 and 14, but I think that when you're older it's not even a dream love story.

    It may also have been the first love story that I read too, at least the first one that was mainly a love story. I loved it at the time (that might be because I got to be around a group of girls I liked and go to the cinema with them).

    I did actually like it at the time and do still like love stories (DON'T quote me on that!), but I don't think that I would even have discovered Twilight without those girls. I did spend most of my time with them anyway, as we were the only people in the library: me for reading, them for talking (I have learnt many potentially-embarrassing things...).

    Most mainstream love stories are basically the same style as Twilight: something to get young girls dreaming that some supernatural hero will choose her, a weak puny creature. This is very hard to write well.

    My favourite french book is a love story which I recently re-read (for the 3rd or 4th time), it's called "Tour B2 mon amour" by Pierre Bottero.

    Different: it's about a boy that lives in the rough area of some unnamed french city. Children start carrying drugs and stuff at an early age, don't care about school, etc.
    A new girl arrives, who loves literature and is considered very weird by the others. He "accidentally" falls in love with her and she likes him.
    Their relationship is nice: they spend most of their time talking, he opens up, starts to read. But to show off to his friends (he's shy) he kisses her forcibly in front of everybody, even though he's never kissed/touched/held her before. The rest is basically the moment when they find each other again, which really is amazing.

    I think "accidently" falling in love actually means not intending or wanting to fall in love with someone, but falling in love anyway.


    Just as an example... let's say you and your best girlfriend are having a slumber party, and one of you turns on the radio and it's ACDC playing You Shook Me All Night Long, and then, you two girls have a pillow fight... and fall into each other's arms, sharing an innocent embrace... and a kiss. Sort of like that, accidently falling in love.


    Oh, and welcome to the forum.;)
