Re: The Twilight Saga: New Moon Discussion

When reading the Twilight series, I had flashbacks to when I was reading the Eragon books (which I only made it through the first two and only part of the third)..... Both Meyer and Paolini's best work involve their secondary characters.

If Paolini had just written Roran's story, and if Meyer had instead focused on Carlisle's backstory, we may just have had books that were actually WORTHY of the popularity they attained.

As it were, both series are utter drivel, with a few shining moments that come solely from the poor secondary characters whose stories these books SHOULD have been.
