Before I had any right to dismiss Twihards or criticize the psychologically unhealthy relationship model that Bella Swan and Edward Cullen present, I felt obliged to read the books. So I did. All four novels, one novella, and an incomplete document in portable format. The content lived down to my expectations, but I was unprepared for how poorly crafted the saga is.

Tagged: The semicolon is kind of the slipping-foreign-phrases-into-conversation of punctuation. It's classy if done right. If done too often, it looks a little pompous, like you're just doing it to prove you've mastered it. If done incorrectly, you look out of your depth.grammarsemicolonwritingPunctuation Abuse
