When I did try to read the first book, I found that it moved extremely slow. The second book, "New Moon," I just became frustrated with Bella's indecision and obsession over Edward. However, in Eclipse and Breaking Dawn (which was my favorite), the writing was better and the book moved along fairly well.
As far as the movies go, I enjoyed "Twilight" even though some of the acting was cheesy. Also, it's difficult for me to want to see more because although I like Robert Pattinson as an actor, Kristin Stewart, the girl who plays Bella, is annoying. She's enjoyed success and acts unappreciative of what these movies have provided her. It's also annoying to see her on stage, and she can't seem to fomulate a single sentence without sounding like an idiot. If the reason for her acting the way she does is because she is an introvert, then she should "act" when she's receiving an award or speaking in public. I have to say that she is not someone I would want our young teen girls looking up to. Young teen girls need a strong, confident role model.
I must respectfully disagree with your opinion of Kristen Stewart. I have been a fan of hers long before the Twilight movies, she is a good actress. I find the way she acts on stage and in public refreshing and endearing. Yes she is a bit awkard and introverted but so what that is who she really is. Why should she act or pretend to be something other than what she is. She's not fake and that is something to value when it comes to celebrities who are always "on".
Edit to add: People aren't perfect and the ways she acts doesn't mean she isn't a strong confident person at all. If I had a daughter I would have no problem if she looked up to Kristen Stewart. You are a bit harsh and judgmental!!
