Adults should be embarrassed to read fiction created for children. Young adult novels like Divergent and Twilight should not be considered real literature. Young adult novels are unsophisticated and indulge in simplistic, neat endings that teenagers may enjoy, but adults should reject.
Some critics feel many young adult novels feature lazy storytelling, condescending writing and have become predictable with their imitated concepts.
These arguments believe young adult novels underestimate the intelligence of their teenage readers and, by that logic, may not have much to offer adult readers.
