I'm a very, very niche market for the Twilight sieres (being one of the extremely rare male fans, and (I suspect, though I have much less data to back this one up) one of the extremely *rarer* male fans who aren't gay), so maybe my opinion on BD counts less. So be it.I had no major problem with BD. I would have preferred that what people are describing as pseudo-pedophilia not be the canon pairing, but more because I preferred another pairing for the first half of the book for the character in question (go Leah!) than because of any particular squickiness the book inspired. And most of the criticisms that people recount leaves me baffled, because they are "sins" SM is no less guilty of in the first three books.Folks, the Twilight sieres is not literature. It is fluff, it is a Twinkie. It is a fairly well-executed Twinkie, but it is not even literature on the level of Harry Potter. It is not literature at all. It's just a vehicle for turning off your brain for a few hours and departing with a glow of "aww" when you and your brain rejoin ways.I could blast SM on any one of a hundred of things, if I were judging her work against Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, Animorphs, or, heck, most YA heavy fandom'd properties (Not Eragon, though. I have much greater respect for a writer who chooses to sit on the sidelines of the game of literature than one who attempts to play, cheats, and still manages to lose). But I'm not. It's enjoyable enough. Let it be.
