Tell Me a Story

Stephenie Meyer's Twilight

I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, so I finally read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.  Having read it, I don't get the hype.  The characters seemed flat and Mary Sue/Gary Stue-ish, the writing felt competent but lifeless, and the last third of the book came out of nowhere.  I wanted to like this book.  I wanted to like the romance between Edward and Bella, but it left me cold. 

These comments are just my opinions, and they aren't meant to disparage anyone who liked the book.  If you've read Twilight, what did you make of it?

ETA:  Since so many commenters mentioned their ages, I'll state for the record that I'll be 31 in August.
