Even though I liked the Twilight series, I guess I can’t assume everyone else does. Right? So I tried to think of at least 5 reasons someone may not like Twilight. They were difficult to come up with, but I tried to see it from someone else’s perspective.
5. Never Tried Reading It
There will always be people that say they don’t like something, even though they’ve never tried it. I have a couple of friends who said they didn’t like Twilight, in the beginning. I convinced them to read at least a couple of chapters and they were hooked!
4. Thinks It’s Only for Teenage Girls
This is true for adults, both guys and gals. Sometimes a series that becomes popular to a specific age group is completely overlooked by other age groups. I could definitely see how this would happen with this story line. The girls at school were all passing Twilight around to each other and a couple of boys got a hold of it. Once they realized it had action in it, they couldn’t help but finish the series.
3. Doesn’t like Love Stories
Some people just can’t stand love stories, even if they aren’t mushy ones. Reading the back of the book and finding out it is about a human who falls in love with a vampire tends to turn some people away. They don’t even give the book a chance. The talk of ‘love’ causes them to put the book right back on the shelf.
2. Dislikes Vampires
Of course, there is actually a crowd of people who think the idea of vampires is ridiculous. They lump all ‘vampire stories’ into one bunch and don’t give any of them a chance. There are always books that talk about the same subject, but from a different perspective and with little twists here and there. This is one of those books that give all the others a run for their money.
1. No Imagination
It’s as simple as that. People who only want books that are based on fact upon fact can’t imagine a world filled with vampires and werewolves living among humans. Personally, I like to imagine what it would be like and find it exciting.
It’s hard to imagine someone not liking Twilight, even just a little bit. The characters are so likeable and the story line isn’t cheesy, like some vampire stories I’ve read in the past. Do you have a reason for not liking Twilight? Has someone told you a reason that he/she doesn’t like the series? Please share!
