It really bothers you when a book has a really good idea behind it, but it's written terribly, amirite?

The first one was so awful I didn't bother reading the rest...

The first was really good, I loved it. The second was pretty good, it was okay. The third was hopelessly and terribly written.

Same here. I just looked up the plot on Wikipedia.

I personally liked the concept of Twilight. It's interesting. The writing and plot was terribly executed though. I think it could have been a more DESERVING pop icon if it were written more to the level of LOTR or Harry Potter so we could have better seen the world of Twilight and other characters. But then again, I'm not the target market so whatever, right?

I also agree with the Hunger Games comments above. The first were very addicting but the plot seemed rushed as the books continued. I wouldn't say the writing was ''bad'' but too much content was in the second and third books that she missed out on a lot of ''in-between-scenes.''

On another note, the Bartimaeus Trilogy, Darren Shan Saga and Artemis Fowl Saga all had very good concepts and were written very well. It's such a shame they aren't as well known.

I love the Darren Shan series and read them at least five times when I was younger. I tried to read one the other day though and it just seemed so simple and not brilliantly written. I still love the stories of them though.

Yeah I suppose reading them again after all these years wouldn't have the same magic as when we were younger.

Even more so with movies.
