***Warning: Spoilers from Breaking Dawn below. :reading:***



Wow...I mean what can I say? I finished the book a day ago, but I've been in to much of a shock to write. I keep hoping this is one of my weird dreams and I will wake up with the real Breaking Dawn to read. Unfortunately, this isn't happening...I've been a loyal reader of the Twilight Saga, but this last book really, really killed me.

1, The whole pregnancy, I couldn't believe she was pregnant because that's immpossible!! It never crossed my mind, if vampire women can't have children then why can vampire men have living sperm? Hmmm? If the women are frozen in time, then so are the men. Huge plot hole for me right there. I mean a really big plot hole. (Also calling her baby "nudger" while it was inside her, I hate hate hate that word, it's just ugly looking and sounding.)

2, Bella is just 18, she's immature, clusmy (how can she have a baby? She would trip and drop it on it's head, I guess it's a good thing it's half vampire), and she doesn't even like children. But wait, that all changes when she gets pregnant...yeah it doesn't work that way. (Also even I figured out the baby wanted blood before Carlisle did, I mean hello, he's a vampire doctor and really smart, he couldn't put two and two together that he needed Jacob the idiot to think of it?!?!).

3, Rosalie was gaining respect from me in the third book, I thought we were going to see a new side of her. Well she totally screwed over that possibility with her lack of disregard for Bella's life, all because she wants a baby!

4, Edward lending Bella out to Jacob just so she can have kids?!? Whoa now, this isn't a pimp or prostitute ring here. Then totally changing his mind about hating the baby after he learns it "loves her". Your kidding right? I also felt there was no relationship between Edward and his daugther. I think I saw him holding once in the entire book?

5, Jacob imprinting on the baby!?!? It was creepy with Quil and that baby, now we have another pedophile here? I wonder how the baby will react when she finds out about how Jacob lusted after her Mom, KISSED her Mom, and thought about doing other itimate things with her Mom. If I found out that's how my bf felt about my Mom, I would be beyond disturbed. And it's like the baby is just the next best thing next to Bella, so he better replace her with it. Also why develop the Leah/Jacob relationship when all he does is turn around and imprint? I always thought they would get together, especially when they had their heart to heart talk. I pretty much wasted my time reading that.

6, The baby's name. OMFG, it has to be the gayest name ever possible...Renesmee. Wow, just wow...and the nickname is not any better really.

7, Bella just totally skipping the newborn stage because she can keep her emotions under control, yeah right. Ex. During the honeymoon she wakes up sobbing because in her DREAM they stop having sex.

8, She still gets to have her parents in her life? (Well Charlie). How's that fair? does she give up anything? (Pretty much no...). I thought one point of the series was to show sacrifices, you have to give something up, to get something else, because not everything is going to go perfect.

9, The J. Jenks storyline was pointless. Totally and absolutely pointless. Just wasting my time there...

10, The battle! Well the "suppose to be" battle. I was waiting for the Volturi showdown forever, I wanted to see all the fighting with the new vamps, but there was no fighting. At all, hardly. (I don't count Alec and Jane's vain attempts.) Because Bella becomes the Sasuke of Breaking Dawn and is unstoppable and no one can get past her shield. (She is also Sasuke-ish because everyone acts like she is the most amazing vampire ever in history, and she can control her power so well just after 1 month?!?)... And then the Volturi just leave...leave!! Their the great and powerful Volturi of the vamp world and they leave cause their to scared to fight? Very plausible.

11, Edward calling Jacob his SON. This relationship took turn a total 180. It was just to weird, I mean their friends now...it's just weird...as I said.

12, There was like no Alice in the book! She was my next fav vamp after Edward, and now that I mentioned it, I felt like Edward didn't really play a huge part. This is why I loved Twilight some much was because of Edward, and him and Bella fighting the odds to be together, but this book was just totally different. They really didn't have much of a relationship that we saw, because they just have sex all the time at night, and we never got to see those parts cause it just skipped right over it. We saw SOME kisses and him calling her "love" that was about it. So where was my romance? Oh wait there was none it was all "WTF moments" that weren't possible and the characters just seemed OOC to me at times...

There were some funny parts, very, very limited funny parts that won't help pull this book back up from the gay plot holes and WTF moments it sunk into, but some were: the Jacob/Rosalie interactions, the arm wrestling match & Emment's innuendos. Yeah not very many...and I guess letting Edward read her  mind at the end.

I don't want to hate the book, but I'm just severely disappointed, I waited a year for this! And it was just totally different than what I expected, and things that aren't possbile happened and my head is spinning. I'm just gonna pretend that this was one big sick joke and Eclispe was the end of the series. I'll try to accept this...new book, but that will probably never happen. I think Stephenie Meyer was kidnapped or something and some Twilight hater wrote this..."Breaking Dawn".

I agree with all of it *shakes head* I was so dissapointed...all this hype for nothing. What was her editor thinking, letting her publish this?! I think I'm like, gonna go join a Jacob fanclub or something, his part was the only interesting part in the whole book! Even though I wasnt fond of him, at least he kept you entertained. :puke: jeez, I cant beleive all the hype over the Volturi "fight" and then nothing happens. I just....cant finish sentences because I'm still in shock.

I did, however, LOVE the Romanians...xD the brought needed black humor to the story! <3

I thought the book was great untill the Hunny Moon. Bella became a total sex addict. I the thought that the book was really good though (mostly). But seriously other then when Edward could read Bella's mind the ending suxxed. I hate when there is a Cinderella Story ending they always suxx. I like it when things arent perfect because lifes not perfect. Why should Bella get a perfect life she seriously didnt loos anything. She got Edward, to not have to tell Charlie, a baby, and Jacob finally stopped obsessing over her, AND she was frozen in time at 18, AND forever beautiful, WITH the most amazing guy in the history of FOREVER

I completely agree with you.
At the big Volturi showdown, I was sitting there waiting for this big, epic fight, but nothing came...
I mean, they introduced all the other vampires and their abilities and even included some some of them taking dibs on the Volturi, and yet here's this huge anticlimax where the Volturi just turn tail and leave..Disappointing..:no:

I really did think the Jacob/Leah relationship was going to go somewhere--with Jacob actually being able to bear Leah and accepting her......
Also, come on, no Alice?! That was a cheat!

The book had so many anticlimaxes and red herrings, it was so frustrating.....
I mean, i thought it was ok, nowhere near the quality of Twilight, but it was still a let down.

I know! I thought at least the big Volturi showdown would help redeem what lows the book sunk to a little bit, but no. Nada. Zip. Zero. No fight! As you said they had even took dibs of vamps they wanted, had all these new vamps showing off their skills, I just excepted some big fight to go down! Tht was so anticlamitc it wasn't even funny. Epic fail, or should I say epic Renesmee?

Exactly, SM progressed the Leah/Jacob relationship, but for what? After that you hardly ever saw Leah again that much. Let alone her talking. And then we jipped by having no Alice for the rest of the book practically.

I don't know what happened, Twilight was so amazing, but this was just...a disappointment. I waited a year to read this. And this is what I got. UHHHHH. *beats head against wall*

I have to say I disagree with you...I thought it was pretty good. I wasn't expecting the whole baby thing, but I thought it was an interesting twist. Though I just might be in denial...like I was when the eragon movie came out.....I denied how horrible it was for soo long. But I thinl that's impossible for this book , I was smiling I mojority of the time I was reading it. LIke the jacob vs rosalie parts(god I hate her !!!)

I'm going to go with your in denial, but hey it's your opinion. I didn't enjoy it. There were a few funny parts, then it was just angsty and boring and anticlimatic. I don't like plot holes, and I feel the pregnancy was a HUGE one. There wasn't a big battle or anything. Edward's character was flat and off to me. He was just depressed half the time, so he got no funny sarcastic lines. Alice was missing for a good portion of the end. Jacob's view got a little boring after the 500th time they talked about checking the perimeter and crap. And other things. It was just disappointing for me. DDD:

To tell you my opinion on it, copy-pasta from my journal, 'cause I'm lazy :

"I swear to something that I'll never touch the abomination called "Twilight", nor it's pathetic continuations. I searched on Wikipedia the next book, Breaking Dawn, just because I'm a curious moron :aww:

What I found was an abomination of all literature....
Plot...omg, shoot me now. It has to be the lamest, most mary sueish, most unbelievable, most stupid plot that has ever seen the face of this Earth. Oh....good grief, I'll never ever touch the book unless I want to go blind. Stephanie Meyer is an idiot, her book is trash, period.


Development...
SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER


Oh, hail and behail, Edward decides to make sweet sweet luuurv to Bella. My oh my. Bella continuously begs him for it after, and guess what? Bella gets pregnant :noes:! Gives birth to baby, becomes a vampire, and well, becomes more Mary Sue than Edward is. Oh, and the werewolf is going to be the baby's future lover or something, imprinted or something along those lines.

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER

God protect us all from this abomination. I, for one, will never even get near the book, unless for a greater cause, like setting it on fire :aww:
Lestat and Dracula are face palming in their graves right now :no:"

I tried to give the book a chance, I really did, I even asked mom to buy Twilight for me so I could read and see what the fuss was all about. I was planning on going to look for the book this weekend, and then I read the plot summary :| "Erm, mom, I don't want that book anymore. Buy me LoTR instead, please?".
:no:

Well I'm not saying Breaking Dawn is horrible...it really is, but Twilight was amazing. I just don't know what happened to BD. The second book sucked until the end and the third one had good and bad parts, but Breaking Dawn was just plain...terrible and disappointing. I've read better fanfiction than Breaking Dawn. I'm just going to pretend that the third book ended the series. :dohtwo:

I loved the first book, can hardly remember the second *which is saying something since I can remember books read back in fifth grade* The third book was... okay, I mean, it had some places in it that I just wanted to rip my hair out at and then it had some parts that had me gripping the pages and quivering in excitemnet, and this book... I don't know if I'm even going to read it, I might just because I feel like I have to read the ENTIRE series, but as for me, I look at the third book as the LAST book. Everything else is just... fanfiction like to me XP Non-canon XP

That is actually the only thing I think I can give her some credit for, its a contraversal subject that will be interesting to see her handle.

I am disppointed about the sudden shift in focus on characters, we were reading it for some well deserved BellaxEdward fanservice.

Not so much...
