Gather ’round kids, for today is a tale of a review of a review of a book. A book that has spurred a crazy fandom that apparently call themselves Twihards. Yes, I’m talking about Twilight. Their level of dedication to the series is both fascinating and weird and almost inspired me to borrow the books to read and see what the deal was about. But luckily for me, a very awesome gentleman by the name of Mark had decided to review the books, chapter by chapter for everyone. Everyone can follow here through Twilight and into New Moon, which is the second book in the series.
I’m not even sure where to start with Mark’s review. It’s both amazingly entertaining, (the first chapter review has an Xhibit meme!) and yet, horribly saddening at what the youths are fawning over. The quality of Stephenie Meyer’s writing is also extremely horrible , judging by the passages and quotes posted as examples for us. I’m not any sort of writer but even I know basic sentence structure, grammar rules and that you can’t really just write away giant holes in your plot. However, as much as Mark wants to kill himself before reviewing another chapter, he still manages to soldier on and entertain us with this current incarnation of literature. Mark’s style of reviewing will keep you coming back, especially with all the lovely MS Paint pictures and the occasional coroner’s report. So if you ever need a very good laugh or just want a way to kill time, go read Mark’s review of the Twilight series. You can even just click through the chapters and look at the pictures! Bravo Mark, for suffering all this pain that would have surely caused me to light the book on fire, I give you . Now please finish New Moon so I can take more pleasure in your pain.
