Will Twilight be the next Harry Potter?

Post  katylynnlee on Fri Apr 25, 2008 10:54 am

Here is an article found by dazzeling_me about how twilight is going to be bigger than most of the movies coming out around the same time.

Enjoy

The movies, maybe - HP movies sucked anyway.
But HP books are - don't shoot me but I think that's just the way it is - much, much better than Twilight, the way they are written I mean. JK Rowling writes way better in my opinion. Well, I should get going now before I get shot, haha =]

I might disagree, but I don't think that's the point anyway - I think she's better with words, she puts far more details into her stories..
And also (this isn't the point either but still Laughing), she made me cry, while Stephenie.. well at least not yet =P

Hm....I did cry during Harry Potter books and not during Twilight, but that isn't necessarily a guarantee of who's the better writer. I mean, the way I see it they are in different categories, since Harry Potter honestly appeals to more people. But I still maintain that SM is a fantastic writer, even though she writes differently than JK Rowling. It's difficult to compare authors whose styles are so different. I love both books but Twilight is just so fantastic...Smile

Harry Potter and Twilight are both incredible books. I don't think there will ever be another book that will replace either one of them. Do I think Twilight is the next Harry Potter? - In fame, I believe it will be quite as famous but, in story - no. Harry Potter is a totally different plot, there is none of the intense romance like in Twilight and there is much more magic involved in the HP series. I am also extremely loyal to all the Harry Potter books ( I don't like the movies because they cut so much out from the book) which resulted from the first time I read them; which started in 3rd grade. Both novels are intriguing in their own way, and neither could replace each other. If I wanted romance and dark action, I'll read Twilight - If I wanted magic and wizards, I'll read Harry Potter. Other then that, I think both stories are equally as good and I will never suggest the one story would replace the other; They're just too amazing and realistic to do so.
I also feel kind of protective of Harry Potter, even though I love Twilight, I've been reading HP for years and when someone comments and says stuff like Twilight is way better then HP or that Twilight will beat HP, - I am always a bit offended. I just can't see any book replacing HP, but I am almost certain Twilight will have a fan base almost as large as those of Harry Potter. & hopefully - the movie is better.

Go you! Those are my exact thoughts too!!
I love them both for different reasons and both have a special place in my heart, neither can replace the other.

personally i think HP has better writing, but twilight has the better story. i do not think that twilight will be the next HP, but like others have said, it probable will be, if not more so, more popular than HP.

I really like HP, but I'm a sucker for romance witch is something the JK failed to put a lot of into her books.
Also I must agree the HP movies SUCK, me and my friend spent the entire time yelling at the screen about all the things they did wrong. I sure hope that the twilight movies are better!
As for who writes better, I'm not really sure. They both have their own ways of writing witch are quite diffrent, so I think it's a tie!

I agree in absolutely everything, you can't compare the stories because they're definitely different. I only think that JK is a better writer -her style, I mean- than Stephenie.
Other than that, I never said that HP was better than Twilight or that I liked it better, I love them both and I always will!

And I do hope that this movie will be better than HP's. At least, they've started off better because HP was doomed ever since they moment they made the casting in my opinion Mad
And this time I'm quite happy with the choices, Kristen and Rob seem perfect for their roles

OMG I was in hysterics (crying) when edward left. But when people died in the harry potter series i was not effected too much. i think they are both excellent authors but when I read Twilight I could picture every little detail. THe way every little thing looked without even thinking about it. In HP i had to think a little harder about everything. I personally like SM's writing better than JK Rowlings.
