Stephen King criticizes Meyer

This was taken from the site

'In an interview with USA Weekend, the bestselling author compared Meyer with J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series. According to Stephen, "Both Rowling and Meyer, they're speaking directly to young people... The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. "She's not very good." '
There are certainly books that I have read that were tedious to get through and some that I would say are completely horrible. But those books usually don't do that well sale wise. Stephenie Meyer has certainly sold alot of books and have become very popular. Complexity of the storyline does not guarantee at great story and I dare say not a definitive sign of a great author.
