From Amazon:
In Breaking Dawn, 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?
I wasn't going to write a review for 'Breaking Dawn' even though I posted reviews for 'Twilight,' 'New Moon' and 'Eclipse.' I finally decided that I would post my review because I did post the other ones. And even though I hated 'Breaking Dawn' I should still write it. I really did hate 'Breaking Dawn.' I read the whole thing probably just as quickly as I read the other 3 books, but I hated it the whole time. I feel like, Meyer just wrote it an released it to make more money or something. There really is no point to the book. I mean, for a bunch of vampires, willing to lay their lives on the line for Bella, they are pretty submissive.

The whole book, I guess, is about the Volturi and the Cullens. Edward is supposed to turn Bella into a vampire or something, I don't know, whatever. So, they show up there and I was all excited that there was going to be some kind of epic battle and people would die and it would be awesome. Instead, they talked out their problems. WHAT? Excuse me? NO! lol. I mean, really? I can't even fully express how pissed off I was when I read the last book. I remember ranting about it to anyone that would listen. How stupid the final book was and that I HATED it. Lame, lame, lame.

I actually didn't watch Twilight the movie until after I read the book. I always read the book first. And by the time I jumped on the "Twilight bandwagon" New Moon was in production. But I've always loved Twilight. Well, I loved the books. But 'Breaking Dawn,' terrible and I will NOT spend money to see least see it in theaters lol. I refuse! I will watch it eventually though, I have to right? haha. Anyways, 'Breaking Dawn' was a huge let down for me. I hated it. But I still love the series...just not 'Breaking Dawn.'

  1. Ha, yes, this is the general reaction to Breaking Dawn. I was just speaking to a friend last week who still wasn't over it. 3 books of build-up, only for the Volturi to turn around and go home. I read that Stephenie Meyer wanted it to be a mental battle rather than a physical one, but it was just an anti-climax.
