Examiner.com has an interesting article written by Peter McEllhenney, sharing his opinion on Twilight:

The short answer to this question is no.

That’s not because Meyer’s book is popular, or financially successful, or because the main purpose of Twilight is to entertain the reader.

I will say this..Stephenie Meyer isn’t the best writer ever, but she is an amazing story teller. She has the ability to make readers laugh, cry, feel the pain of Bella and Edward. Her ability is truly beautiful whether you consider it Literature or not.

And as I always say, opinions are like a-holes, everyone has one and some times they stink.

What do you think? Is SM’s Twilight literature? Why or why not?
