So, okay, I started reading twilight forever ago and couldn't get into it, right? I told my mom not to bother, that the writing was dry and make-believe and full of wordiness. She read it, and in like, a week has managed to read the entire series and is in love with it, and pretty much yelled at me for saying it was so bad!!! So, I picked up the first book again and started again, trying to make sense of the hype, and i see the casual errors that i usually see in fan-fic. Granted, a decent fic considering Harry Potter fics can be pretty epically shitty sometimes. first. dense AND opaque. x and x. one will do. besides, dense and opaque confuses me why use both? also, semi-colon happy. i mean i know this went through an editor, but to me it seems like they're wrong? i don't know. also. she'll write a long sentence and then a two word one. blahblahblah. figures. blahblahblah. I don't like it. also, un-researched. an old truck gets good gas milage, look your shit up woman. first, she sits next to edward cullen in algebra, and then later in the chapter she sits next to him in biology. her crutch word in this chapter is clearly bogus. i dodn't know you could say bogus that many times.
so far, as equally un-impressed as i've always been with the whole thing.
