Breaking Dawn

by Stephenie Meyer
Breaking Dawn (Twilight #4) - Stephenie Meyer 7.62   695

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.

Actually, I like this book more than other three books. The style of writing changed and that was odd. But the change was not bad - I prefer this new writing style to the older one. I liked the ending, happily ever after was the thing I expected and got. There was still few things I didn't like, Jacob's love with you-know-who for example. But I liked so many things that I have to be "young&stupid teenage twilight fangirl" and give five stars. :p I liked it. Really.

I felt rather good about Bella and Edward after the trilogy and started to read this fourth installment with high hopes. From the start I was just astounded by how much the style had changed, and not for the better. Did someone else write this book? While reading I felt like watching a train wreck, but just couldn't make myself stop, wishing it wasn't happening. The characters lost their hold on me, I no longer knew who they were. Some of my Twilight fan friends will crucify me for saying this but.. In my honest opinion, the story should have ended with Eclipse. Meyer could have tied up the lose ends right there. Going this far was unnecessary and left me feeling rather sad that the sometimes rocky journey I took with the characters had to end this way, me hoping I'll never hear from them again.
