Twilight has vampires and cute love stories, its exciting and unpredictable. But is it better than Harry Potter?? I like them both and it will be very hard if I'm asked to choose side. What's your opinion??

definitely nope! i have expect something really big of twilight when i go to watch the movie but end up disappointing! harry potter 10000 much better than twilight! i think twilight novel is much better than the movie! but i give thumb up on the twilight movie because they shoot on gorgeous place,effect and the way they end the movie!love the final scene fighting scene!but that doesn't help to change my view on how awful they did the film!

i won't call Twilight movie awful at all. it was highly entertaining. and the story linger in the back of your mind even after the picture ends. of course the books are always better than the movies for us book lovers.

I only ever read the first Harry Potter book and I really wasn't a fan. I read the first Twilight book because my sister bragged about how great it was and then I ended up LOVING IT! I definitely like Twilight better than Harry Potter. I don't know why exactly. I feel like Harry Potter is geared more towards children than Twilight is towards teenagers.

Yeah Harry is a kid when the story start out but then it evolved into complex and emotional saga. It's really fun once u start following it. But i agree about Twilight being teenager oriented. Its exciting and has certain element of surprises..

There is no comparison. They are both amazing books, but they are both set differently, in different worlds for crying out loud! You can't compare them because J.K Rowling's books take place in a different world than Twilight. Twilight takes place in the real world, whereas Rowling has creating an amazing fantasy world away from prying Muggle eyes.

I really like them both; I was an avid Harry Potter reader when I was in middle school, but now I'm totally engrossed in the twilight series.

I prefer Twilight over Harry Potter, because Twilight is a romantic movie and not just fantasy adventure, it has romantic punches which is more endearing and inspiring to watch. Harry potter is purely fantasy adventure with silly magic themes.

Hi! I haven't read any Harry Potter books and I think I've only seen one movie and I hardly remember it. I do like the Twilight series and I really enjoyed reading them and I also like the movie and I'm just waiting or the New Moon movie to come out.

I am going to say no but only based on the fact that the Harry Potter publishers printed enough books and so most readers did not have to wait to get the books. I am biased though, my husband was going to buy me the Twilight box set for Christmas but they sold out and he was told that a new shipment would be in by mid Jan. It was not until March that the box sets came in and before that the stores in my town and online (the ones that I looked at) Did not have a copy of every book, only one or two.

Well Twilight is relatively new compared to Harry Potter. The publisher might not have expected a huge respond from the world. Anyways, if the problem persist Stephenie should definitely change her publisher.

As much as I like Twilight I don't the saga nor Stephenie Meyer could ever compete with Harry Potter and JK Rowling. I don't even think it's fair to compare the two stories because they're so different from one another. I think JK Rowling is a brilliant and intelligent writer. Stephenie Meyer I think is mediocre but she scored big with creating such a compelling love story. I think that the Twilight saga is geared towards hopeless romantics like myself where as Harry Potter is more for the masses. If forced to choose I'd choose Harry Potter :)

Well I personally dont think they are in the same league. One cannot compare them. I mean they are just different. Pure magic which includes witches, gaints, elves and so many other magical creature and on one hand just vampires. How can one compare.
