    TWILIGHT.  Ugh. Not only is it bad writing (which unfortunately turned into bad acting), it gives a horrible message: having a boyfriend is more important than staying human, going to college, not disappointing your parents, and having any other kind of social interaction. Plus, the boyfriend in question is a vampire who constantly fantasizes about killing his girlfriend, watches her sleep, and, if I'm not mistaken, destroys her truck's engine so she can't go see another friend of her's. What?? I can't believe people take that series so seriously.

    I think the Bible is extremely overrated.... taken to be a text which can be read and interpreted literally......

    Breaking Dawn in the Twilight series.  It was a lot of pages of so much to do about nothing.  Seriously, the entire book is spent talking about and preparing for what could have been an epic battle and then... Nothing. Definitely a waste of time to read.

    Gone with the wind is overrated, it's a romance novel, that is all.

    The DaVinci Code...it's a chick flick novel, basically, where the hero gets the girl.  I also can't see what all the fuss was with Christians knee-jerking over fiction... just sayin'...
