Гарри Поттер против Сумерек Вопрос

What are your proper reasons for disliking/ not preferring Harry Potter/Twilight over Harry Potter/ Twilight (for those who choose sides)

My reasons for disliking Twilight: (OPINION!)

I picked up the first book when I was around fourteen ish and wanted to see what all the hype was about, (my former best friend was an obsessed Twihard.) Anyways, I forced myself through a grueling two weeks in order to finish the book so I didn't have an unbiased opinion. Once I had finished, I noticed a couple of things:

1) The Письмо prose was weak IMO. Most of the sentences and paragraphs had a lot of unnecessary, ahem, adjectives in them. (Honestly, I don't need to be reminded of ol' Eddy's cold, hard, granite, skin etc every couple of pages!)

2) The character development was poor in my opinion. Bella started off as a depressed moody girl without a boyfriend to a depressed moody girl with a boyfriend. The Cullens, the only interesting characters IMO, needed еще screen time and Edward needed еще backstory.

3) The villains! What was the actual point of James hunting down Bella? Her blood? That's it? Seriously? The Evil Trio или whatever they were called needed еще screen time! I found them to be mildly creepy stalkers at the end of the book rather than menacing revenge hungry villains.

4) This one is completely my opinion so not an actual flaw, anyways... The book didn't grab me. To be honest, I just wanted to give Bella a good slap and tell her, "SNAP OUT OF IT, BITCH!" The story dragged on (once again my opinion since HP OotP did as well) and we had to go through countless pages of Bella moping and whining before we got to the main point. Come on!

There are еще but I'll point out the good stuff about Twilight.

1) The Cullens! They fascinated me, honestly that was one good thing about Twilight. I just wished Smeyer would've дана them еще screen time but that would have made the story drag on. Eh whatever.

So, all of this is my opinion. What's your opinion to dislike/ not prefer the respective book series? (or book if you've only read one.)

Why I prefer Twilight over Harry Potter.

* My main issue was the Письмо style. There weren't nearly enough adjectives, so it read like an extremely simple technical manual. Very dull and offputting.

* The plot was too ambitious (NOT complicated или confusing. I understood everything just fine). All these kids had to go run around all the time and do everything, and save the world. The irony of saving themselves and their personal world while people on the opposite side of the globe remain forever uneffected would have been еще intriguing and emotional for me.

* There were not enough intimate themes (I do not mean sexual, I mean of a private или personal nature). I did not feel much emotion while Чтение these Harry Potter Книги because the accomplishments were large and nothing at all I could relate to (excludind SNape's struggles, I loved that).

* I'm not a Фан of the characters' "wisdoms". None were superiorly intelligent at all. Not Hermione and not Dumbledore. They did not provide me with any bits of wisdom that were not already present in my life.
I'm not saying that Twilight was a wisdom Золото mine, but none of the characters were portrayed to be as such, so it wasn't really a failure.

* I really enjoyed Twilight on a scientific level. There was not much science at all in Harry Potter, just stuff that happens with no explanation. There's no reason wands do what they do, или why a плащ can make people invisible, или why unicorn blood makes Ты live longer, it just does and I'm accepted to just accept that because it's "magic". Even made us science is better that "it just is".

*It has a very juvinile concept, with a few very adult concepts tossed in every once in a while. There's no inbetween. The closest thing to inbetween was Ginny making out in closets, a I appreciate her character a little because of that.

It's overlyambitious. It has nothing to do with Harry, it has to do with the plot.

The Письмо in Twilight was lacking so much. There were times when Meyer was just laundry-listing which is utterly boring and turns me off:
"The Thriftway was not far from the school, just a few streets south, off the highway. It was nice to be inside the supermarket; it felt normal. I did the shopping at home, and I fell into the pattern of the familiar task gladly. The store was big enough inside that I couldn't hear the tapping of the rain on the roof to remind me where I was.
When I got home, I unloaded all the groceries, stuffing them in wherever I could find an open space. I hoped Charlie wouldn't mind. I wrapped potatoes in foil and stuck them in the духовой шкаф, печь to bake, covered a стейк in marinade and balanced it on вверх of a carton of eggs in the fridge.
When I was finished with that, I took my book bag upstairs. Before starting my homework, I changed into a pair of dry sweats, pulled my damp hair up into a pony-tail, and checked my e-mail for the first time. I had three messages."
I find Bella to be an annoying character, the way she's portrayed as the 'special' one. And then she's all: "But I'm not special, everything's my fault, I'm not pretty at all, I'm so selfish."
I wish Smeyer took еще risks with this book. It seemed like a flat line most of the time, if Ты get what I mean.
I also find Edward's smug attitude infuriating and I wished Bella would try standing up to him and telling him off for once.

I cant criticize Twilight's Письмо because I never wasted my time Чтение it! The biggest problem is Ms. Bloody Boring Bella Swan. If Ты wanna know my I take side- Hermione taught me that I can be brave, that I am еще than what people say. Bella tried to teach me that I cannot be anything without a man. When the Любовь of Hermione's life left her, she continued on the way to kill the Dark Lord. When bella's Любовь left her, she curled up in fetal position, went numb for months and jumped off a cliff. THIS is the woman that fourteen год ol girls of today are idolising, worshiping!

I'd like Twilight еще if it was originally in Edward's POV. Edward is really the only well-developed character in the series. I just couldn't click with Bella. She's too man-dependent and I'm all for independence and following what Ты believe in. Bella seriously threw her life away for Edward. She was accepted into Dartmouth and turned it down all for Edward! Bella was only 17 and she knew that Edward was her everything. Seriously? Ты have a whole life ahead of Ты and Ты turn it down for a sparkly virgin.
