Okay, so I've heard all the hype about the Twilight book series but I really don't understand all the excitement.

Seems to me that the most enthusiastic fans are just girls swooning over whatshisname. Sure, that's what girls do (not all girls, mind you, but a lot), but I really don't understand why it is so popular!

I haven't read the books. I have absolutely no desire to. But from reading the posts on this website about the series, it would appear they are not even well written. Is this just another teen love story with an unbelieveable twist? Seriously, vampires seem extremely cliche, and the story does not at all make sense to me. Is it really all about the one time they kiss (or however many times) and how desperately they want to be together (I don't know the story, but I would imagine there is some reason at the end they can't)? Or, is it really all about a "cute couple" and how far then can take their love without her getting bitten by him?

I honestly don't know what to make of Twilight. As of now, I can only conclude that it is a played-up fad that has little to no quality. I will be researching it more in the near future; I have an open (if not prejudiced against cliche love stories and vampires) mind about this, so if anyone happens to read and has any opinions they'd like to share, I'd love to talk about it.
