hey, I'm writing up a debate about twilight and I thought this site would be perfect to help me with it, I've read the books and i would really like to know exactly why you like the books. is it that you like the idea of such perfection? or do you like the will she won't she love triangle?
I'd love to hear what your views are! but please nothing on the movies as the debate is specifically literature (sorry robert pattinson and taylor lautner fans!)
please try to be as detailed as possible so I can use it in the debate.
also I'd love to know who your favourite character is and why
Well that info helped a lot. I'm now all but finished writing it. It may be a bit too long to do the filming thing though (the main speakers get 15 minutes to do there part)
Please let us know how the debate goes, Jennifer. It seems like it will be enjoyable.
I would love to know how the debate goes as well. If it is recorded and can be put on youtube or something like that, it would be really interesting.
I'll let you know. I don't think I can record it as my camera doesn't have enough memory in it. But I'll write what happens.
Thank you, Jennifer. I'm looking forward to it.
Well the debate went well my opposer put up some good arguments and she said she was impressed with some of the ones I brought up. Unfortunately though neither of us won because more then half abstained from there vote because they felt they didn't know enough about the books to be fair. But it was a fun evening and people were genuinely interested in what we both had to say.
So yes thanks guys for your help with it. I probably won't be coming back here so it is also a fair well. You never know though you might see my name crop up on other sites or in other places, who knows??
Thanks again and good bye! :)
Thanks for the update. Glad that people were interested in the debate even if they were not well knowledgeable about Twilight. There are many aspects of the Twilight story that can be debated, so glad you were able to have fun with it. :)
Please say more, Jennifer. Was the topic of the debate whether the Twilight books should be read or avoided? If not what was the specific topic? What points did you make in your end of the debate? What points did you opponent make? I'd love to know more.
I always loved twilight but since august that i started reading the books i became completely addicted.
I think what make twilight books so great is that they are more complete than movies, movies only show a small part of the book for example in eclipse when Jasper tells his story in the movie shows when he met maria and when he trained the newborns but, doesn't show when he met Peter and my favorite part when he met Alice.Other example is in New Moon when Bella rescue Edward and at the final part when they came back to Forks and in Bella's room Edward tell to Bella (in the book) many romantic things and in the movie doesn't show all the things he said to her.
My favorite character are Alice and Seth, Alice because she is most of time happy and she is a fashionista and Seth because he is optimist and happy most of time too.
Hope you like my reply,
Thanks for replying it was interesting. I must admit I think out of all of the characters I think I like seth a lot more then the others he seems to have an innocence about him which I like
Seth is certainly a sweetheart. He is a great guy. :)
