Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer

Hey Guys...even though I have a long standing battle (well, not really) with the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer (as you can see from my rant - earlier post) once I kinda think about it, its not that bad. I mean as in the way Stephanie Meyer writes her books and's mainly just the craze that makes me oppose these books. But anyway, here's a review for Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. BUT first things first, summary!

When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?
To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs. Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating, and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella's life--first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse--seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed...forever? The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.

What I really like about, not only the book, but the series, is that it's actually focused on "stages" of Bella's life. Like, the series doesn't continue with Bella and Edward/Jacob being girlfriend and boyfriend, but they actually get married...which is a pretty huge jump. This actually is good, because we know how Bella chooses in the end, instead of going on and off with Edward and Jacob and making this a super-long series with readers trying to catch up with who Bella's with. Stephanie Meyer definitely makes it to a point that Bella is going to marry Edward around the 2nd-3rd book, and they of course, get married in the 4th. It isn't like (to make an analogy) like the House of Night Series (Luv the series though!) by PC and Kristin Cast, where Zoey keeps going between Heath, Erik, Loren and Stark (GO TEAM STARK!) and we're all hanging at the edge of our seats wondering who she'll end up with. Stephanie Meyer does keep it to the point, but of course, adds in suspense to make the reader wonder.
In Breaking Dawn, I could kinda guess what was gonna definitely happen. Bella was gonna turn into a Vamp FOR SURE and was most likely gonna end up with Edward...which she did. But it did have things that came out of the blue. Charlie finding out about werewolves for instance, even though I was pretty sure he would find out about Vamps though, that was one thing that jumped out. And OF COURSE Renesmee. I didn't expect a half-human half-vamp child to appear in this book...but I was expecting some sort of child or the other (I really had no idea what it would be). Also the joining of other vampires was like, different because it showed the unique vamps and the different "tribes/clans" of Vamps in Stephanie Meyer's world.
Things I didn't like about Breaking Dawn. WELL. I'll admit this was one of my faves from the Twilight Saga (right before [along with Twilight] I kinda had fallen in love with Taylor Lautner and then preferred New Moon and Twilight as my faves). Well anyway, one thing that I definitely didn't like was the fact that, there WAS. NO. VAMP. WAR. I was so excited, cause if you've read earlier posts, you'll kinda know that I love Fantasy Wars (Books and Movies) so I was BUMMED when there wasn't anything. Because seriously, they gathered a huge amount of Vamps to go against the Volturi (did I spell that right?) and nothing really happened except for discussion, Bella's shield and blah blah blah. It was kinda a really boring way to end the series (for now). Another thing I didn't like about Breaking Dawn was that Jacob Black fell in love. With a CHILD. That's totally high on the creepy and weird scale 'cause normal people do not, and I repeat NOT, fall in Love with a fast-aging child, especially ones that was the girl's you-loved daughter. Yeah, that definitely was weird.
Well, anyway, I have commented enough on Breaking Dawn, and if you haven't read the Twilight Saga, it's definitely something that you HAVE to read. Don't be a wimp...and make sure you don't get caught in the Twilight Craze, 'cause once you get in, it's really hard to get out. Well other than that, I HAVE to get a copy of The Host, Stephanie Meyer's other novel-book thing and of course, the Eclipse Novella: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Bye till next post!
