Introduction: Millions of readers delight in works of Stephanie Meyer. She has been blessed with special gifts that have make her stories a delight to read. But starting almost immediately after the release of her first work "Twilight" there has been a steady criticism of her writing style. She is very aware of theses criticisms. And has said " SM, Q: When I try to read "Twilight" all that I can see are the mistakes that I made. It is so painful, that I can't even bring myself to read it." That being the case it makes the "Saga" an excellent work to study. The science of literature is a beautiful science indeed. Though I may have opened this discussion, it is only fair for me to admit that, I am a complete novice when it comes to this field. But as our old friend Professor Beaven use to say "That's just makes it even more important that you study the question."
You make an excellent point. To me "Twilight" stands alone. Stephanie originally only wrote other Twi-novels because Hatchett (AKA Little and Brown) only offered her a contract IF she would write three books.
As always, thank you for sharing.
