Re: Worst Quotes from Twilight?

This is the one I detested the most and the long-standing worst paragraph I have ever read:

 

"It was beautiful; I couldn't deny that. Everything was green: the trees, their trunks covered with moss, their branches hanging with a canopy of it, the ground covered with ferns. Even the air filtered down greenly through the leaves. It was too green--an alien planet."

 

She goes from saying it's good that it's green to it's bad that it's green. Make up your mind. Plus the semicolon was completely unnecessary. And their branches hanging with a canopy of...what? What is it hanging with a canopy of? Moss? Green? Trees? How are we supposed to know?

 

And this is not the only line like this...

Re: Worst Quotes from Twilight?

Haha this shouldn't be too hard.........

 


 "Sleep, my Bella. Dream happy dreams. You are the only one who has ever touched my heart. It will always be yours. Sleep, my only love."

 

Ummmm.... I mean, if a guy said that to me I would have burst out laughing, no matter how sweet the moment

 

"He leaned in slowly, the beeping noise accelerated wildly before his lips even touched me. But when they did, though with the most gentle of pressure, the beeping stopped altogether."

 

did she die??????

 

Too many adjectives and bad writing structure.....

More quotes to come, I have to go google this.:smileywink:

Re: Worst Quotes from Twilight?

Okay, lets think about it.

 Put aside your blinding love and think about this seriously....

Are there really any good twilight quotes?

 

I mean, not to hate, but they're all so unintelligent and desperate sounding.

just giving my oppinion.

Re: Worst Quotes from Twilight?

I have to admit that in the movie when he said spider monkey it made me cringe!  I though it was horrible, I couldn't believe that they would put that in the movie, but then again the movies ruined anything good about the books- but that's just my opinion.

Re: Worst Quotes from Twilight?

actually, there is over a 99% chance that there are aliens. however, they will live in a different galaxy entirely, and it would be a bad idea to try to find them, because they will have diseases that we will have no immunity to, and vice versa. your argument is invalid.

Re: Worst Quotes from Twilight?

Why is it that if something succeeds in something people turn to haters. Stephanie Meyer had an idea and brought it to paper for young adult fiction readers to enjoy. This women made people that never read start reading and con't to read. That in itself is something!! Sure she prob ran out of original ideas and had to improv. I get tired of people ragging on the series. "She is stupid" "The books are dumb" blah blah.... I'll bet all the haters read all four books, if you didn't like it why con't the series and if you didn't read it why are you commenting? You have no business in the discussion. (that's like saying you hate McDonald's french fries but never had one, really?) Or was it that you realize you didn't like the series until there was nothing good left to say and your conversation got boring. Get over it! I will agree some stuff is cheesy in the books and movies. That is the same old story "change the channel already". This was the first book she ever wrote. Have you ever went back and read the first novel of any of your other favorite authors? How did their writing compare?

 

Lol sorry this was not meant to be rude or offensive just an observation. Have a great day!
