As others have mentioned, the Twilight series is written for teenagers- not adults. Meyer did write her first "adult" geared book, "The Host", which I love. I really enjoyed the Twilight books, in fact I managed to reach each book in about two days.. I couldn't put them down. After reading "The Host" I was hesitated on reading Twilight, since it is a young adult book, but I couldn't put it down. I also love Charlaine Harris- but she is most definitely adult oriented, same with Sherilyn Kenyon, Kelley Armstrong, and the other supernatural writers I love. I wouldn't expect amazing writing out of something geared towards 15 year old girls. I like Meyers, like I love the other writers I mentioned, because they are fun, quick, and easy reads. I love Stephen King because his books have powerful themes and messages and he's an amazing writer. I love the way he describes things and I don't mind reading 1000 page books. Lisey's Story and Duma Key were especially emotional and incredible books. If you want a quicker King read go for Cell..who doesnt love zombies?
