I gave one comment,and now everyone has to gang up on me.Sounds like to me you are trying to change my opinion!And do you not pay attention to the good response I gave Twilight?I said that Twilight,in my own words,is 7 1/2 stars.I could have been mean and said that it is 0 stars!I have read Twilight,and liked it,but nothing compares to Harry Potter!In my opinion this is what I think:
Harry Potter=Fantastic
Twilight=Great
And to everyone here,I never said I had anything against Twilight,I just wanted to say what I thought.To know my first opinion,look at #3.I did not want to say that I hated Twilight,just that I feel that Harry Potter will be the best in my eyes.If I hated Twilight,why would I be on a Twilight fan site?

I said Dracula was a classic didnt I? Yes, I was putting it in the same context as the classics. I never said that Bram Stoker wasnt a brilliant writer and I never said that JK Rowling was anything less than AMAZING either. I love JK Rowling I love Harry Potter. I never said that Twilght was better. I like them the same, not because either is better written, I know Harry Potter is better written, but because people enjoy twilght too.

I never said Stephenie was better than them I just said that Twilight deserves its place in the classics too. Why? Because people like it. People love these characters, people love the story-even if it isnt as big or as great as the Harry Potter book/movie franchise but people talk about. Alot of people love it and isnt that the reason the “classics” are the “classics” because they are loved and talked about even now long after they were written? Isnt that the point? Dont you think that this generation of twilighters will pass on their love of the twilight series to their daughters, as really good books to read? No they’re not the best written books out there, yes they are a little corny and silly and cause alot of insane uproar in the fandom but PEOPLE LIKE THEM, you have to accept it and not insult everyone who thinks differently than you.

And I was not trying to be psychic when I made that comment about years down the line, nor was I saying that they arent already in the same isle because they are. I was merely saying that someday I believe they’ll both be classics because they are both popular and people do dearly love them as much as pervious generations have loved the classics that have came before.

I know that they are both fantasy, but my point was that they could almost be in different genres because Twilght is more a romance than anything, the main theme to the story is Bella and Edwards love even if other things get in the way of that whereas in Harry Potter its primarily about a young wizard fighting against dark forces in the wizarding world. It is different and whether people like one or the other better has to do with what genre they prefer fantasy/romance or fantasy/adventure.

Correct me if I’m wrong because I dont really keep up with all these awards too well but hasnt Harry Potter won this award before or at least many similar awards? Why should they deserve to have it again? Cant Twilght have one award in your mind? Does everyone else really have to “think better” can you let everyone have there own opinion and not barrel down there throats?

And finally did you have to insult my intelligence? I never insulted yours, nor did I even comment on anything you had to say before this or have any negative comment toward you. You didnt have a right to insult my intelligence because I didnt do anything to you. I stated my opinion. You dont have to agree with it but you dont have to insult me. I do know how to use capital letters thank you but this was a comment on an internet page, not an english assignment or a story, there is no reason to use all the correct grammer and punctuation. It’s just a comment and was it really necessary to through my words back into my face like that “It actually gives you alot to think about……” I didnt mean anything mean spirited when I wrote it, just that I was contemplating the matter and that it is actually an interesting topic thinking about all the books from this generation that could make it into the “classics.” You didnt have to use it the way you did.

I’m sorry that there are people here that disagree with you and yeah there are people that disagree with me but Im not going to insult them or tell them that they need to change their minds.

sorry if I offended you in any way but I had to defend myself. you dont have to reply to this and you dont have to take any of the things I said into consideration, I dont mean to change any of your opinions. I just wanted you to understand where I was coming from.

sincerely melissaturkey

Rowling will be in history as one of the finest writers.Oh please,Twilight and Harry Potter in the same isle?’My grandchildren and great grandchildren could be walking down the isles of a Barnes and Noble or a Borders store and see all these stories in one section.’Spare me!What are you now,a psychic?Twilight won’t be a classic,the movies will not be a classic,so SORRY to crush your little dream!And don’t you know how to use capitols?Well,I guess this just proves that I am more intelligent!

It actually gives you alot to think about……

There is a twisted romance in that, with Mina and all that craziness. It occurs to be that one day my grandchildren and great grandchilden could be walking down the isles of a barnes and noble or a borders store and see all these stories in one section, a catagory all of there own Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, Dracula, Twilght and Harry Potter all in one isle for easy access to “classical” literature. Its funny how that might turn out and then next they would be compairing Romeo and Juliet to Dracula and Mina (which is quite an interesting compairison dont you think?) who are on the surface as different as Harry Potter and Twilight.

it actually gives you alot to think about…

i think twilight will be a classic.

pride and prejudice, romeo and juliet les misarebles ect ect
doesnt twilight just fit the criteria to be the next classic???

If it was , say, ‘Best First Book’ I think Harry would win, but the lastfew books (Order of the Phoenix onwards) got kind of repetitive, long-winded and dull, whereas in my opinion each Twilight book was better than its predecessor.

Plus, Harry Potter has no Jasper, Jacob or Emmet. So really, how could it win?
