Twilight vs Harry Potter by Starrphyre Twilight vs Harry Potter by Starrphyre
I'm really tired of people saying Twilight is the new Harry Potter.

It isn't true and Twilight gets bashed for it.

Harry Potter
Coming of Age
Plot Driven
Twilight
Romance
Character Driven

Both Fantasy-ish

Both are new, original ideas that took risks and it payed off, THAT'S IT



the correlation is the fans of Harry Potter grew up with the books and then (mostly the girls) moved from kids literature to young adult. (I'm not saying Harry isn't for adults because we've all been kids once)


Apples and Oranges, both fruit completely different

and last comment from me
people who hate Twilight, don't see it for what it is

Twilight sucked. It was a romance that was shoved down our throats the minute it came out. The novels weren't bad, the movies were shit. Harry Potter is way better then Twilight, that is my opinion. The writer also came up with The Host, a show and novel I shall never be able not to love
Now for those you like Twilight, go ahead and engulf your Fandom to no end, it is your right and I shall not dish on you if you do like Twilight, but I am a Harry Potter fan born and raised. When I was little, I listened to the auto tapes of Harry Potter for hours and hours, and I loved the movies to no end. Granted, the movies had their flaws but I learned to over look that. Harry Potter is what gave me my imagination to start with and I went from there to Marvel, DC, + other fandoms. I have some reasons I hate Twilight, but I shall not list them as I do not wish for flames from the fans. You twilight fans can love twilight, it is your thing, what you are into, but I'm into Harry Potter and you can not sway my loyalty to the universe J.K. Rolling created

Some people are saying Twilight even copied off of Harry Potter. I've read all the books for both series and seen all the movies, they are completely and totally different so how people can say one copied off the other I'll never understand O_O

See, I completely agree. I don't understand why people hate on Twilight so much. The movies were pretty bad, but the books were awesome! I like both, and don't see why people feel you must choose between the two.

I depends entirely on what you like. I mean, I haven't read them a bunch, but they are better than some books out there. They aren't the best books in the world, but they aren't the worst either.

And I completely agree with you. They are nothing alike, and anyone who says they are needs his or her head examined. However, just because some people who read them are idiots, it doesn't necessarily mean that the books themselves are bad. Nothing can replace Harry Potter.

Twilight is good and the vampire's are original, I agree, but I too am getting sick of people saying it's the new Harry Potter, call me close minded - which I seriously ain't - but I don't think that anything will ever be the same, much less better, than Harry Potter~

harry potter: i didn't really grow up with the books but i did sort of grow up with it. i'm about three. my parents are watching the chamber of secrets. i'm hiding in my room. i don't like it.
i started out hating harry potter but i grew to like it a bit. i would at least watch it.
2010: i'm not that great of a reader. my teachers stress it too much.
dh pt.1 comes out. i go see it with my parents i love it. i tell my mom i want to read the books some time.
2011: philosipher's stone is on my summer reading list. i read it. i love it. dh pt.2 comes out. love it. i start book 2. now: i've finnished each book. finished the half blood prince in a week. i'm the best reader in my class. i'm obsessed with hp.

Haha I can't believe it, Harry Potter is just so different...I mean, we grew up with it, it's one of the most important book series in my entire life, it litterally changed me, I wouldn't be the same if I hadn't grown up with it...Twilight didn't do this to anyone...

My experience with Harry Potter and Twilight, yes I know is long, Im sorry...

Ok. Let me be honest when HP came out I thought it was bad, without even reading it, and it wasnt until Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban hit the bookstores that I decided to pick it, why? Because it is orange and I like orange things, and yes I started reading HP from the third book...and to be frank I love it, I read all the books from the series, I even read the one about magical animals, and I watched the movies, even if the books are way better... So yes, I had no faith whatsoever but now its one of my favorites books series ever, and the third one is my favorite of them all---you can tell a book is well written when a douche that missed the first two books can read the third part get interested in what had happen and what will be, and even enjoy the ride without being lost and feeling like she had known the characters for a long time, and really well, because they feel like deep, and three dimensional, even if it doesnt hammer the reader with descriptions---

And then Twilight came a long... and I didnt have the best introduction I watched a really bad dubbed version, and with my experience with other books to movie adaptations, my favorite book has like 60 adaptations and not one based on the story, I said to myself: well, maybe they screw it up on the film, and then I bought the book...I never had felt so alienated, emotionally detached from something on a book in my life, I couldnt even pass the first page, it was so horrible, it felt like a pretentious fan fiction, or even worse, the descriptions were over romantic but felt plat and uninspiring, the actions seemed to be happened in a hole in time like everything was slower and duller....So in short I hated it. And it was the first time ever that I bought a book, I sat in a park to read it, I read one page and I throw it to a garbage box, Im not kidding. The fact of the matter is that yes they are books with slow and strange beginnings, but they have something to hook you, a good writing style, and interesting plot, a good character, whatever, but with Twilight it was for me: just blatantly dull, uninspiring and pretentious crap.

Who ever said Twilight is the new Harry Potter is delirious.

I prefer Harry over Edward, and you make a very fair point. Twilight is nothing like Harry Potter because unlike Twilight, Potter is very eloquently written, has an engaging plot, and one terrifying villain. All Twilight has is...well...vampire romance and some forced plot because somewhere down the road Meyers realized that she can't hve the books be all about Bella and Edward's blossoming romance (though she tried pretty damn hard, I must say)

This irks me for a completely different reason.

Everything in the known realm that has to do with teenage entertainment mysteriously need be compared to Harry Potter. I remember reading a review (an OFFICIAL, CRITICAL review) about how Hunger Games was so much a better movie than HP, and I thought to myself, "WTF does Hunger Games have to do with Harry Potter, you moronic weaboo?"

It annoys me to no ends.

DM-sama Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012
Okay....if the only plausible reason that you hate Twilight is because the vampires sparkle, then your hate isn't very well justified. If anything it just makes you look moronic, because that's the generic complaint about Twilight haters, and requires no real knowledge of the book itself. Have you ever even read the books?

And you do realize that fagot is just an offensive term for homosexuals, and that they most certainly do not sparkle? And that Edward most certainly isn't gay?

Look, I'm a die hard Harry Potter fan (grew up on those tales, love 'em), but I've actually read the books, before it was considered 'cool' to hate them. It really isn't all that bad.

I think that the sparkling is poetic.

i have read the books and ik i shouldn't have laughed at the fagot thing, and no actually i just don't like twilight in general. I mean some of the vampire stuff to me doesn't make scene like the sparkling thing and i really don't like some of the actors. But hey we both have our opinions and just because i dont have the best reasons to hate twilight doesn't mean i dont have a right not to like it. I repsect what your saying and i get wht ur saying but i have my reasons.

I like Harry Potter because the movies have gotten great reviews and got 3-4 star ratings. The Twilight series on the other hand got 2 star reviews. I know this because I read the TV guide and go on IMDB (Internet Movie DataBase).

They’re two very different books D:
I gave up on reading Twilight at the part where Bella goes to meet Edward’s family. I think I would have liked Edward’s character but I became bored since it seemed every time he was mentioned it was another opportunity for Bella to say how beautiful looking he was. They’re relationship was too skin-deep for me, I’d have liked to see how Bella would have acted if Edward was fat, sweaty and with a bad skin condition.
Harry Potter had me hooked from the off c:
