i am a fan of the twilight saga(addicted!). i have even read the midnight sun leak on the net. i loved the idea of the story, wherein a vampire fell in love with a very innocent yet brave commoner. i loved the characters, the personalities and all that. there is just one thing i have noticed on the manner the author wrote the books. the book was so detailed that sometimes the momentum of the scenes were dropped at a sudden pace. and also, the conflicts were a little disappointing.it was shallow, no depth at all (especially on the 3rd and 4th book). im so sorry, this is just an opinion.(im still inlove with the books!)... dont hate me, im just voicing out my opinions here. if i were the author and if i were gifted with a talent for writing novels, i would have changed the conflicts and add more spice and depth on the story. so, i wanna know, what errors or any thing have you noticed on the book that you think you would have wanted to change? or what is your opinion about how the books were written, its characters, the flow of the plot and all???

I think the characters and just the whole idea of vampires and werewolves living in secert amoung humans is a really cool idea. The first book was great, and captivating. But some of the events that followed in the next books were kind of soap opera-ish.

True...but I like the third one nevertheless. the first one just kind of feels like it needs a little more to it that what happened. Don't you think it's a little bit too short? (**,)

I agree! I think the scenes got way too detailed in some spots. I caught myself skimming over some sections because they just kept going on and on! I love the story, I have read all of the books twice, and I will probably read them again!I do think the conflicts could have used more embellishment, especially the parts in the end, with James and Edward, and when Edward was sucking the venom out of Bella. As far as the pedophilia theory goes...eww! I would never have thought of such a thing. While it is true that Edward has roamed the earth for over 100 years, his physical age will forever remain 17. And Bella is supposedly much wiser beyond her years. I think it is also hinted that Edward is a virgin until his relationship with Bella, both physically and emotionally. He had never been in love until Bella. I hope not too many people read into the pedophilia theory, and accept the chivalrous and beautiful love that they share.

The only problem that I see with the saga is it feels incomplete to me. There needs to be more at least one more book, not including Midnight Sun. There needs to be something that tells us what happens between Jacob and Renesme. Granted the conflicts were a little disappointing at times, but I attribute that both to the fact that these were Stephanie Meyers' first books and also to the fact that they were orginally intended for a young adult audience. Overall, I'm in love with the saga and I can't wait to get my books back from my sister and sister-in-law so I can read them again.

I know what you mean, but you have to remember that these are the first books she's ever written. If she decides to write anymore, I think she may get better. But she may be one of those writers that wants everyone to see exactly what is in her head as she is writing, so she adds too much detail. The detail covers the story and takes away from the plot. In my opinion, though, I think the second book is the worst. The third and fourth are better. I don't think any girl can be so broken up over a guy, that she is almost institutionalized. Also, the story was slow and boring. I really hated it. I think there could have been a better way to introduce the shapeshifters (I'm not going to call them werewolves, since they are not truly werewolves) and the Volturi. I'm not sure yet what she could have done, but there had to be a better way.

Errors? Hmmm... Well, I've seen some people commenting on Yahoo Answers that they find some pedophile issues on the story. They say Edward is sort of pedophile because he's already 107 years old (technically, right?) but he's in love with Bella who's barely of legal age in the first book. Don't take me wrong, I am not the one making these comments. I've read them, and I'm just sharing. Actually I'm a very avid fan of the saga (book, not the movie, because I am not satisfied by how the movie is presented. I've got a crush on the character of Edward, and not on Robert Pattinson. I used to, when he was Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter...), I've read the book like almost ten times. It's my relaxation whenever I feel so tired and sleepy while writing my thesis. It's just that, well, somehow I can see the point, although I can counter it with reasonable explanations. (**,)
