I had several co-worker (far from being pre-teens) who loved the books also. It just wasn't my idea of vampires. As you say to each his own.The Twilight books appeal to a crowd different from that of the majority of FishLore. I'm assuming the 15 people who liked ZeeZ's post are not preteen females To each his own.
Heh. Your post was just the best place I could find to split the thread.Funny, I don't remember starting a thread Can someone do my math homework in my sleep too? ;D
I was kidding, the final is tomorrow, no more homeworkAnd no. I can't. I'm a tutor. I've got a chip in my brain that doesn't let me do others' homework for them.
Here's where we need to separate what we like from ourselves. Otherwise, any statement of "I don't like something" by nature becomes an insult.Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Mine just happens to be that I like it. I just don't see how it's a bad joke. Yes everyone can have their opinion but no one should be made to feel bad because of it.
just so you know the first 2 really do suck bad, but, the 3rd and 4th is alot better.Like I said I had several friends at work who read it and absolutely raved about how great it was. I love a good horror story so I bought the first book. By the time I got to the end I really couldn't have cared less about any of the lead characters so I didn't bother with the rest of the series. I also watched the first movie and didn't care for that much either, so I haven't seen the rest of them. It didn't have anything to do with the age group it was aimed at because I actually liked the Harry Potter books. Not saying I'm right - just my opinion.
I love Aqua, I have Aquarium and Aquarius. (Interesting discussing this on an aquarium forum...)Here's where we need to separate what we like from ourselves. Otherwise, any statement of "I don't like something" by nature becomes an insult.
This is not the case. Nobody was mocking those who like Twilight. They were mocking Twilight, which lends itself pretty readily to mockery, for the reasons I stated above.
Let's look at something other than Twilight:
I listen to Aqua. It's my favorite band. Lene is my favorite singer. Yes, I love the song, "Barbie Girl." And yeah, there are people who think that Aqua is a horrible joke. I don't take that personally. Someone tells me I'm an idiot for liking Aqua, then yeah, I take it personally. But I can see where people are coming from in having such a strong opinion of the band.
Perhaps someone should add a *spoiler alert* to the titleI mean seriously, talk about having a climax that runs right up to the top of the mountain and then just falls flat on its face before reaching the peak. That book is 700 pages long. For approximately 650 of those pages it leads up to the conflict with the volturi. They reach the battle field, talk, have a little skirmish and then... Volturi: 'oops, you were right. Our bad, lets go home'. That one part of that one book makes me dislike the whole series -.-
