Catch-22 is difficult to start reading and doesn't make girls warm in their pants.

That's true. Girls being warm in the pants is much more important than reading a good book.

Catch-22 isn't that hard to read as long as you remember who the characters are.

I started reading Twillight due to my girlfriend coaxing me into it. I am really enjoying it so far and cannot put it down.

Word. I figured I would at least give it a try, given how much my sister and her boyfriend enjoyed it, but every page I turned to had the simplest reading I had encountered since the books I read in 10th grade for leisure. I wasn't expecting college-level reading, but the writing seemed so mundane that I had trouble getting into the book because I was always aware of the fact that I was actually reading (instead of my mind's eye focusing on the picture the words are painting).

I think it's more of a teenager thing, as opposed to a gender thing.

Is it almost as bad as Magic Treehouse?

I didn't read the books, however I did watch the movie at the midnight premiere with my girlfriend and her little sister. (I had to go because her mother felt it was necessary to have a male present since the young one is 12.) I actually found myself indulging in the movie and really wouldn't mind reading the books now that my girlfriend and several others have said that the books are much better. But, alas, I do not have time for books at the moment, and will just have to settle for the sub-par movie releases.

The only guy I've seen say this was a good book was the homosexual guy in my 3rd and 6th hours.

Dude change your user name, or dont make ignorant comments. I do not care for the twilight books myself and also have difficult seeing how any other guy would be interested int the series, but when christens make comments like that it sets back the lords work. If no one can tell the difference between you and the rest of the world, what makes you think you are any differnt? (rant over) .

i know plenty of straight guys who read the books. it's not the fact that it's a "chick book" but it's good literature. Stephanie Myer has a way with words and that's what i love about the series. its not that it's a vampire/human love story.. it's just good writing.

before you start to diss the series... just TRY reading the books.

good writing, but the plot is straight up retarded. the whole "i can't kiss you" thing seems to echo much of mainstream christian america's sexual frustration and confusion, but what do i know.

The writing is amature and mediocre at best. Excessive adjectives != skill. The only reason why I can see women would flock to the book is similar to Harry Potter: It provides an insert that they desire. In the HP series, it was a nearly instant rags to riches super awesome and amazing lifestyle complete with a rich world of fantasy. Twilight has about 3% of the depth, though. Bella is the ultimate Mary-Sue, and provides a very easy insert for the reader to be sucked into it. Hell, I'll let Robert Pattinson say it:

Quote:
“When I read it, I was convinced Stephenie was convinced that she was Bella, and it was like a book that wasn’t supposed to be published. It was like reading her sexual fantasy, especially when she said it was based on a dream and it was like, ‘Oh I’ve had this dream about this really sexy guy,’ and she just writes this book about it. Like some things about Edward are so specific, I was just convinced, like, ‘This woman is mad. She’s completely mad and she’s in love with her own fictional creation.’ And sometimes you would feel uncomfortable reading this thing. It’s kind of a sick pleasure in a lot of ways.”
On the bright side though, I'm seeing girls who havn't read a book outside of in class required reading pick up the series and finish it in a week. Many of them are beginning to move onto other books too. As an English fanatic, that's always heartwarming to see.

I read the first book and won't be reading the rest. I felt like I was reading something at a fifth grade reading level. The characters were pretty dull and the author threw in all the descriptions and all of that, but I could care less about the description of "morning dew on the rusty trucks fender."

My 13 year old sister said they are easy reads. I haven't checked them out but I did take her to see the movie and it wasn't that bad. I was hoping indian home boy would turn into a wolf and fight the main vamp.
