Breaking Dawn is the last book of the ever-loved Twilight series. We join Bella and Edward as they take their journey down the aisle. During the reception, Jacob shows up to wish Bella the best, but when he catches wind of their plans to have an actual honeymoon, all werewolf breaks loose. On that bad note, Edward and Bella head off to their honeymoon, where they end up with a plus one. Unsure of how it happened, and not sure what havoc it will cause, the newlyweds jet home to Dr. Carlisle. When the Volturi catch wind of what they presume to be an immortal child, the Cullens must rally the their friends and allies to save their newest edition and are in for the fight of their lives...

Or not. This story builds up, but is afraid to "go there". The whole story is built around getting ready for a life changing fight that never happens. It was disappointing to read through a 700-something page book, only to be in exactly the same place I was when I started. It was not a satisfying end, and it left too many open ties.

Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer is the fourth book
in the Twilight Saga. It was the perfect ending to this extraordinary
series. This novel has been a huge hit across the world for teens and
adults.


Breaking Dawn is about a teen girl named Bella and a vampire named
Edward falling madly in love and getting married. They try to keep
their love alive while simultaneously defending themselves from the
Volturi (evil vampires).


Stephanie Meyer vividly described and portrayed this vampire
romance. I'm sure plenty of girls my age are obsessed with Edward
because of all the description.

Breaking Dawn is the second book in the Twilight saga. At the start of the book, Bella bleeds at the Cullin house, which unsettles the family of vampires. This causes Edward to rethink the relationship. When he leaves Bella, she falls for Jacob, the teen wear wolf. But Bella still yearns for Edward. When she hears and sees visions of Edward while participating in risky behaviors, she takes more risks and endangers her life. The story spins into a Romeo and Juliette type adventure as the two lovers take sacrifices for each other.

Breaking Dawn is my favorite book. The wedding and the honeymoon afterwards was so amazing! Jacobs story was entertaining, to see how Jacob feels about Bella. The Volturi made the book, better at the end.

This book by Stephenie Meyers is wonderful. The author did a really good job. Breaking Dawn is a perfect hundred if possible. Breaking Dawn is about choosing to die for the ones you love. Some of the main events are Bella and Edward get married. Then the Volturi comes but for what. This book is where you come into greatness and it might be taken away from you just as soon as it comes. But I think the main idea of Breaking Dawn is to never give up hope. "You had me totally convinced we were all going to die! I've been a wreck for weeks.",said Bella to Alice.

Though Im probably late to jump on the bandwagon, I feel I must warn you, the unsuspecting masses, of the atrocity that is Breaking Dawn. While I was less than pleased with the hype around Stephanie MEYERs Twilight saga, I do admit that the series is addictive. I found myself waiting impatiently for the release of the much awaited fourth installment of this young adult vampire series, but then it ended up sitting on my shelf for around four months before I decided to pick it up and get my moneys worth.

My God, what a waste of twenty dollars.

I was appalled at the ridiculousness of it all. What was supposed to be a thought-provoking, intelligent romance ended up being something a twelve year old fan girl with some writing skills could have conceived, I found myself re-reading almost every sentence just to see if I read it wrong, telling myself no author would allow a novel to get so outrageous. Apparently, STEPHENIE MEYER finds herself exempted from the lines of logic.

It starts off well enough, with Bellas anticipation of her upcoming wedding to the over-perfect Edward Cullen and worrying about Jacob Black, who ran off at the news of hers and Edwards engagement. When the wedding does arrive, and Jacob comes to visit, she lays out the big business of her and Eddie getting horizontal on their honeymoon. Needless to say, Jacob is less then pleased.

A bit of angst, conflict, and some feuding can be turned into some pretty good literature. My hopes were raised. Perhaps some character development will happen. Perhaps this will go beyond Bellas utter uselessness. Perhaps this fourth installment will find its way into my best of 08 list. Sadly, these hopes were quickly crushed.

Where do I begin? Ah, how about at Isle Esme, where Bella suddenly switches into her fresh temptress skin. She does not just ask Edward for sex. She sits there and begs for more and more sex, even after the first time, which left her pretty bruised up. Edward initially refuses, but when Bella insists & well, hes only a man, right? (The question of how pops into my mind, though all bodily fluid supposedly dies out when vampires are created, blood included, so &?)
Needless to say, Edward has even less personality than in the previous books. His life - as usual - revolves around Bella, and Bella can think of little else on their honeymoon than getting it on. Edward and Bellas relationship in a nutshell: Bella watches Edward sparkle, Edward sparkles, they get married, sparkle some more.

The main twist follows shortly: surprise, surprise, Bella gets pregnant (with the whole tidbit on immortal children in the first two chapters, having nothing to do with the then-plot direction, it was in fact pretty predictable). I wont even go into the logic of this and Ill ignore the aforementioned fact that Edward is devoid of bodily fluid (sperm included). Instead, Ill provide three words that express my feelings: JUMPING THE SHARK! Ive come to the conclusion that STEPHENIE MEYER was so completely out of ideas that she went on to some fan fiction website, chose the most ridiculous plot possible, and wove a tale around it. I am not pleased, Ms. MEYER, not pleased at all. Thankfully, that is the end of Book One of Breaking Dawn, and we move on to the saving grace of the series; Jacob Black.

For a lovely portion of the novel, we are brought into the heavily sarcastic cynicism that is Jacobs mind. It is possible that, in these four hundred or so pages, MEYER has written the best she has ever written in any of her published works (The Host included). I love Jakes dark humor, and the way he is so conflicted between his love for Bella and his devotion to the pack. I love how he also hates her and what she does to him, and how he hates everything shes chosen to do with her life. It all would paint the picture of a real relationship. When Bellas with Jacob, she sparks something resembling a personality. They have playful fights and kid around and dont always bow to each others whims. Its something real, not this desperate, obsessive, controlling fight for power that Edward and Bella have. All in all, I love Jacob. I also enjoyed the packs transgressions, and I LOVED Leah. Shes tough, but she has semi-normal worries, such as that, being the only female werewolf, she believes she is destined to die alone. Plus, as a pack member, she is forced to see and hear her ex-boyfriends loving thoughts about Emily, the woman he imprinted on while he and Leah were still dating. She has no choice in the matter. Its brutal, yeah, but in the greatest way.

Jacobs narrative still doesnt make up for the incredulous plot: Bella is not the least bit frightened of an unnatural being that has taken up camp in her womb even more, she calls Rosalie to help her protect the thing (as though it needs it). I guess that by now her being only eighteen doesnt matter anymore, or perhaps the birth scene is supposed to scare off any potential fan of hers whod wish to follow her footsteps its best described in one word: ewwww! Think Rosemarys Baby combined with Dracula, add a bit of Blood and Chocolate and then just take every single female scream from every single movie ever made, and play it all at once.
Heres the kicker--Jacob imprints on the baby. And thats the end of his narrative. How awkward can you get?

Then, alas, we are back to the melodramatic insight of Bella. She wakes up and finds her daughter, whom she has named Renessme, appropriately nicknamed Nessie. Thats the only thing marring her first steps into a life of an immortal, though shes utterly perfect once she becomes a vampire. Shes able to control her bloodlust and doesnt have to give up anything; its like shes missing out on the whole vampire experience. She gets a perfect little ending, even after shes made the dumbest choices anyone could possibly make. Whats that saying to young girls who are reading this? Its OK to give up everything in your life for a high school boyfriend, cause eventually itll all cool over.

Theres nothing even remotely worth mentioning about Breaking Dawn other than the plot: character development is zero to none. If youre really into the series, you might like to read it just for some kind of closure, though I guarantee it will be messy. I dont know, maybe youll love it. Maybe you already love it. Maybe youve read it multiple times. Debate is welcome. Im curious as to what others think (that is, others who arent blinded by the beauty that is Edward).
