Format: Hardcover
I got started reading the series about a month ago. I sped through the first book in one sitting. I received the final 3 books a couple days ago and devoured 2 and 3 instantly. But I was nervous about starting the 4th book. I had read such negative reviews, I was apprehensive about the book. But I knew I wanted to read it anyway. Now that I am finished it, I am very glad that I did. I'm 23. Older then the books target audience, but I think that might be why the 4th book worked for me. Bella was being more grown-up then she had been previously, and I could relate to it. It is true, that there was not as much action as there had been in previous books, and I'm not sure if I would have taken the book in this direction, but it does work. The ending was a bit Walt-Disney for me, but at the same time, that very thing helps me deal with the fact that their story is stopping.

*spoilers*
There are reviews on here that say how Bella didn't care for Renesme. Its true, initially Bella didn't go near her daughter -- not because she didn't want to be, but because she was afraid of what she would do to her. Once she had established that she wouldn't hurt Renesme, she was with her all the time. And as for saying that the bedroom scenes were all she was concerned with, she seemed to be balancing Renesme and Edward evenly. No she wasn't with Renesme 24-7, but does any parent really stay with their baby 24-7 and avoid their partner if they really loves them?

I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of action in the book. A good fight between the combined covens and the Volutari could have been good, however, I am okay with how it turned out. And that Bella did not have any 'growing pains' after becoming immortal. But even that kind of goes with what Bella's character is.

I don't know if Stephenie Meyer lost her mind or if the publisher forced her to churn out a fourth book just for the money, but from page one right through the end, this was a giant waste of time.

I accept that the money I spent on this book is gone, but now I want those hours of my life back - all wasted in the desperate hope that this book HAD to get better eventually. It didn't. In fact, the one thing the author did accomplish was to surprise me with how much worse a work of fiction can actually become.

I think I have psychological damage! If I hear the ever-overused words "murmur", "flit", or "danced" in the next few weeks, I might just have a stroke. Actually, a stroke would have been more enjoyable than this book. Did Breaking Dawn HAVE an editor?

Alright, there was one redeeming moment to buying the overpriced hardcover version of this text...it was great for killing a very large spider. Otherwise...kindling?

(Spoiler alert!)

Grrrrr. I am SO ANNOYED by how disappointing this book was! Where do I even start???

First of all, it's hard to understand how an author who has created such an intriguing bunch of characters (Bella excepted) could just destroy their potential with LUDICROUS plot twists that treat the readers like idiots.

I just can't forgive Meyer for the utter creepiness of having Jacob imprint on the baby. What the hell?? That was just icky, and took away his free will and all of his humorous, endearing personality with it. He went from a wolf to a drooling lapdog. All the pain his character went through and poof! Suddenly it's all magically gone, thanks to Renesmee the monster-baby? Ugh! Ew, ew, ew. Stephenie, HOW COULD YOU??

Edward didn't have much depth either. He's just so perfect, perfect, perfect...that's all we ever hear about him. I get it! He's perfect. He's got a "perfect face" (whatever that is). He's rich and has a collection of luxury cars. What more is there about Edward for us to get to know? What has been been up to for the past century? What does he see in Bella anyway? He's ultimately just there to adore Bella. Please!

As for Bella, and her vapid, melodramatic lack-of-personality: I was hoping she'd realize that being human isn't such a bad thing after all, and actually learn how to function as an individual. But after she became a vampire, there weren't even any struggles for her, after all that we'd been led to expect. She was the bestest of the bestest. What a MARY SUE. Even Derek Zoolander could tell her that "there's more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking." (And marrying a rich guy at 18, having babies, and ditching your education.)

In Stephenie Meyer's mind, I guess there isn't. Bella the vampire was so insufferably "perfect" that all I wanted was for Buffy to come along and just drive a stake through her.

Format: Hardcover
When I read through the three previous books in this series, I felt they held a certain fanfiction-like quality. They were entertaining, but the writing was nothing to brag about, the characters lacked depth, and the plot was very predictable. I expected something along those lines for Breaking Dawn, but I gave Meyer the benefit of the doubt that she would have improved by this point.

Unfortunately, Meyer's writing seems to only have declined. This book was worse than all the others in the series by a long shot. I'll avoid direct spoilers here.

The beginning is, to be fair, not all that bad. It starts off in the same style that Eclipse, the prequel, ended. Only a few chapters in, however, do we hit the insanity. For one thing, Meyer contradicts herself in this book. She has stated multiple times, it seems, that certain things are impossible in her vampire world and yet these same things happen in Breaking Dawn. It completely defies science and logic without a single justifiable explanation for it. Plus, what could have been a good potential to develop her characters was abandoned for more crazy plot twists that were more disturbing than interesting. Bella, the main character, made a complete 180 in personality and felt more than ever like a self-insert (for one, Bella didn't previously hold all the same moral and religious beliefs as Meyer, but in this book I felt as though Bella had become a Mormon out of nowhere). Edward also seemed to have lost the little personality he previously had and acted in ways that were extremely shocking, and not in a good way. The only one to stay remotely in-character was Jacob, who was quite clearly the best part of this entire book. Sadly, Meyer even ruined Jacob.
