Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

It might seem redundant to dismiss the fourth and final Twilight novel as escapist fantasy--but how else could anyone look at a romance about an ordinary, even clumsy teenager torn between a vampire and a werewolf, both of whom are willing to sacrifice their happiness for hers? Flaws and all, however, Meyer's first three novels touched on something powerful in their weird refraction of our culture's paradoxical messages about sex and sexuality. The conclusion is much thinner, despite its interminable length. Everygirl Bella achieves her wishes quickly (marriage and sex, in that order, are two, and becoming an immortal is another), and once she becomes a vampire it's almost impossible to identify with her. But that's not the main problem. Essentially, everyone gets everything they want, even if their desires necessitate an about-face in characterization or the messy introduction of some back story. Nobody has to renounce anything or suffer more than temporarily--in other words, grandeur is out. This isn't about happy endings; it's about gratification. A sign of the times? Ages 12–up.

Well, there are SOOO many things to complain about with this whole series. I truly enjoyed them the first time around despite the fact that Bella was a huge Mary Sue and Edward's "Bella you are so beautiful and perfect and wonderful" got boring, not to mention corny, reeeeally quickly, and of course how predictable everything was. Well, except the ending for Breaking Dawn. Oh, was that ever a disappointment.


Starting with Twilight, Bella's constant marvelling about Edward's glorious face was really ticking me off the second time reading it. It wasn't as noticeable with the first read, but I read the book so fast I wasn't very conscious of such things. In my opinion, it was the best of the four by far. Not a spectacular work of genius that will be loved for generations to come, but interesting enough and a decent read. But yes, largely predictable.

Then came New Moon, which had lots of people I know either staring open mouthed at the page where Edward leaves Bella in the forest, or throwing the book at the wall then only reading the large portion of Edward-less text with pure rage. Once again, I could see what was going to happen long before it did, such as that. It was painfully obvious. Then there is the large portion of Edward-less pages to complain about. I, like many others, read and read and read waiting for the return of the vamps. But what else was there that was interesting in that whole mostly-vampire-less book other than the werewolves, which I could see coming a mile away anyway? Certainly not Bella's change from constant marvelling to constant whining about her painful loss of her beloved Edward.

Format: Hardcover
I've read the reviews and I know many people were disapointed by Breaking Dawn. I was hardly expecting Breaking Dawn to rival "Cather in the Rye" and I approached it as an entertaining and fun read. For the most part, Breaking Dawn delivers. I do, however, have three complaints about this book:

1) The characters didn't remain true to the first three books. Perhaps the author was growing bored and wanted to develop her characters a little further, but this was a radical departure and Bella and Edward in particular are almost unrecognizable. I am suprised this was not caught by the editor. It was disapointing, but I was able to let go of my expectations and still enjoy the story.

2) Book Two was just awful. Honestly, really awful. Bella's pregnancy and delivery are described in such gory, horrific detail it left me feeling sick and unable to understand her devotion to the baby. I put the book down for several days after reading Book 2 because I did not have the stomache to continue. Once I recovered and was able to continue reading Book 3, I still found I had a hard time viewing Renesmee as a child and not as a monster.

3) Why was book 2 written from Jacob's perspective? This interrupted the continuity of the series and left me feeling out of touch with the central characters. Again, I think this is something the editor should have caught.

I did thoroughly enjoy Book 1, and the last 100 pages of Book 3 were exciting and I found myself unable to put the book down.

I would happily read anything else Stephenie Meyer writes in the future, but I am quite happy to see a conclusion to the series.

I adore this series, but Breaking Dawn? Not as much.

***Spoilers... don't read***

Pros... I love that they get married and I love that they finally experience their physical relationship...

Cons... Why did the baby have to come so soon? Why couldn't Edward and Bella just live together as a married couple and be happy for a few decades? Baby came wayyy too soon...

All these random vampires... why? Who are they? Why were they even mentioned? Hard enough to picture what they look like, let alone remembering all their weird names. And that last vampire who proved to the Volturi that a half-mortal could live and not endanger others.. how random was that?

The Volturi... huuuge disappointment. I was expecting the Cullens to wipe them all out so they wouldn't have to live in fear of them ever again. The Volturi are supposed to be the most feared vampire clan of ALL TIME... but in the end, they're wusses.

Some loose ends were never tied: whatever happened to Edward and Bella going off to college? I know she became pregnant, but they were still deciding on college. Why did we learn about Jasper, Rosalie and Carlisle's backgrounds in full detail, but not the others? I would've loved to hear more about Edward as a human and how he managed to overcome the challenges of being a newborn vampire.

The ending... where does that leave everyone? What happens to Jacob and Renesmee? Weren't Rosalie and Emmett supposed to get remarried?

And in the last moment of the book, Bella is finally able to show Edward some of her thoughts... after that, what? Nothing was clarified. I just assumed after she was able to do that, they had sex again...


PS: My disappointed didn't last too long.
