I just noticed that the 4 chapters of Midnight Sun (AKA Twlight, again, as if it wasn’t enough the first time, only at least this time you’re not actually in Bella’s whiny head) that SMeyer has up on her website is 260 pages long.

Just for perspective, the WHOLE of Twilight is 260 long in the same format (PDF – you think I was going to spend money on this to see what the heck everyone was complainin about?)

I thought maybe it was type size or something, but I checked. On a fairly dense page of Twilight Text (namely, Bella whining about… well, everything) there are approx 460 words.

On one page of Midnight Sun – and quite a diffuse page (sorry, couldn’t be bothered to find a more wordy one) there were 330 words.

So FOUR CHAPTERS of Edward moping about Bella is almost as long as an entire BOOK of Bella moping about Edward was?

Oh my. I hope the woman never finishes the thing…

According to a commenter here, http://autocompleteme.com/2009/12/16/the-twilight-saga-as-told-by-autocomplete-me/ “Those who don’t like Twilight Saga are not women.”

Join the ranks of those who have therefore decided to become dragons instead.

“I want you to call me every bad name you can think of, in every language you know. I want you to tell me that you’re disgusted with me and that you’re going to so that I can beg and grovel on my knees for you to stay. At least stop trying to make me feel better. Let me suffer. I deserve it.”

Direct quotes from one of the Twilight books. This is our main character and narrator talking to the man who is supposed to love her, an whom we are told she loves.

Oh my word on a stick. And SMayer dares to say that she writes strong characters and that Bella is a good role model.

There are some seriously strange and possibly disturbed girls out there.

70 thousand words, baby! I rock!

On a totally different subject;


One of the most hysterically funny things I’ve read, well, more or less forever, AND puts flesh on the bones of why many sane persons, upon reading Twilight for the first time, found that it was a bit… off. And on trying to read it for the second time, found that they could not bear to.

Basically, AOL, about most of what I have read so far. There are some points where I fundamentally disagree with the guy writing about things – frinstance, I make no bones about the fact that I believe in God. But in terms of the squickiness of this novel, the characterisation, the attitudes Meyer seems to be endorsing with how her characters act… yeuch… Yes, he’s so right. I just couldn’t make it as funny. I am so glad I don’t live inside Stephenie Meyer’s head. She is one scary woman. I knew Bella was a bit of a Mary Sue, but read the description of Bella and then do a google image search for Meyer. *shudder*I was very disturbed

I mean, don’t get me wrong; I have nothing against you if you enjoy Twilight. But I didn’t and it’s a relief to find someone pointing out the things that made me feel comfortable.

If you have any intention of reading my NaNo look away now because I fear I’m running out of “unspoiled” readers *grin*

I was rather horrified to realise that I had inadvertantly created some similar things re multiple love interests and supernatural beings in my NaNoNovel. Now I am pretty sure that it’s VERY different from Twilight in almost all respects. But it says something that spotting any similarities with it while I read those reviews made me feel tainted and very slightly sick…
