Stephen King Disses Twilight Author

Stephen King compared Stephenie Meyer with J.K. Rowling the author of the Harry Potter Series.

According to Stephen, “Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people… The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”

But He “Understands” our appeal to the series


“People are attracted by the stories, by the pace and in the case of Stephenie Meyer, it’s very clear that she’s writing to a whole generation of girls and opening up kind of a safe joining of love and sex in those books. It’s exciting and it’s thrilling and it’s not particularly threatening because it’s not overtly sexual.”

He further explains, “A lot of the physical side of it is conveyed in things like the vampire will touch her forearm or run a hand over skin, and she just flushes all hot and cold. And for girls, that’s a shorthand for all the feelings that they’re not ready to deal with yet.”

(For those of you who aren’t familiar with Stephen King’s work, one was IT the creepy clown movie that goes out to kill those kids? Ya now you remember at least Stephenie writes decent books!)
