I'm going to give it two stars, because when I read it when it first came out, I was young and naive and actually liked it (but not in a OMG!!!1! TEAM EDWARD way). So therefore didn't realize how horrible these books were until I re-read the first and couldn't get past the first 50 pages. Anyhow, I give it two stars for introducing me to the PNR genre, and also because this book made many many teenagers who hated to read start to read. There's nothing worse than when someone says "I hate reading!" so I give Meyers points for having that influence on so many non-readers.
