I've read some unpleasant, stupid books before. Heck, for review laffs, I've read about half of the "Left Behind" books which rival anything else in print for sheer ridiculous stupidity. But the writing of Stephenie Meyers is dumb, bad, and painful to read or listen to, lacking even the Left Behind books over-the-top inanity.
At any rate, cripes, I can't fit my whole review here so just go to:
for the goods.
