Oh, Stephen King. I both admire and fear for you. Be sure to read the comments!
I don’t think he had any clue as to the wrath of the Twilight community when they are provoked. I wish him luck in finding a mailbox that will hold the amount of hate mail he is about to receive…
909 comments? No, sorry, I’m not up for that.
I’m surpirsed they all didn’t just read “Bite me”.
why can’t he just have an opinion for God’s sake?
Wow interesting. JK used the Heroes journey to guide her novel and Meyer used sparkly skin and teenage hormones. Good on both of them for exciting teens to read.
I'm with Natalie. As long as teens are reading, it has to be a good thing. I admire SK for saying what he thinks, but he might need to take a little R&R underground if he doesn't want Meyer fans banging on his door.
The comments are now over a thousand, so I just read a couple. It’s interesting how you’re allowed to say someone can’t write well if the book is not popular, but if it’s accepted and loved by the masses, you suddenly are not allowed to have an opinion on the craft of writing.
I have to wonder what he’d think of me.
It’s not very often that you have a writer or any public person come out and say, “He’s good but he sucks and he sucks and he sucks.”
It’s refreshing in this neverending era of political correctness and the strained, artificial farce of civility under which we have to live.
I skimmed the comments, and it seems like King has more polite and intelligent fans. Which is nice, because my teenager daughters all prefer his books to Meyer’s. They think Bella is a huge wimp.
