Short 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 a werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fate 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.
I really don’t know what to give this book! I have never read any of Stephenie Meyer’s books and I think I never will( sorry to Twilight Fans and the author, actually no, I take that back). It was recommend it to me by a classmate of my school saying that I would really like it. Uhh…. You got that wrong my dear friend. Not only did it take me 17 days to read this, but it also wasted my precious reading time. It was the worst book I have ever read this year and trust me I have read some really bad ones. Also the writing was horrible!! Sometimes when something was written I would stop and re-read and search through the pages looking for more details and explanations. I was hungry for details. Isn’t a book supposed to be full of details? Isn’t a book supposed to explain somethings? Well this books didn’t do that all!
Basically there were like no problems at all. No conflict, no tension. It was a book with words but empty if you know what I mean. The characters were so stupid and out-of-place. Stupid Jacob suddenly accepts vampires and Bella becoming a vampire before Renesmee was even born. And then when Renesmee is born the world is peace. All the vampires accept him and he accepts the vampires. Which is just completely stupid. And then Jacob finds that Renemees is his match and he imprints her or whatever. I mean who falls in love with a little girl? It doesn’t matter that when she is older or whatever they’ll get to be together. It’s just stupid.
You know how they say that Bella will sacrifice everything she loves? That’s just bull-s. A total LIE! Bella didn’t sacrifice anything at all. She had a child, she got Edward, she got to keep Jacob as a friend, she became a vampire without newborn bloodlust, and her power turned out to be the greatest power of all. It was also very unrealistic that she would suddenly go from not really wanting children to wanting her “little nudger” so badly she was willing to risk her life for it.
Okay the name Renesmee was weird and the nickname “Nessie?” I mean what the hell? But then of course she’s Bella’s child and beautiful. She is nice and kind and loves Bella right away even though Bella never really took care of her in the first few days. And everyone is entranced by her. And she will stop aging at age seven so Bella will never lose her. And you can see how perfect this little baby is.
Then Bella becomes a vampire and you can imagine what comes next. She is the most powerful greatest vampire On the Earth. She has a very powerful gift and she can use it almost immediately after she is born again as a vampire while it takes years for most vampires to develop their power. And like Lisa said: “And extending her power past its normal boundaries is also effortless to her. When others attack her shield she easily keeps it up with only “discomfort”. And because Bella is special (no real explanation is given), she is still immune to the powers of those she is shielding even though they are not immune to each others’ powers. And of course Bella’s gift makes her immune to pretty much every other gift out there. Even trackers use the mind apparently. Of course this didn’t stop James from being able to track Bella in the first book but why let that get in the way of Bella’s awesomeness.”
So then Bella doesn’t have lust for blood like all vampires. She has self-control which in the book it says that it’s another power but like the author Meyer should be she didn’t really explain it at all. She, I think got confused on the parts to where she needed to explain and didn’t need to explain. And I agree with something Meyer said in an interview: I don’t either,Stephenie see what people see in these books(http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=UVEvEtF08S8#!). This whole book lacked explanations.
The ending… I did not see what people saw in this ending. Nothing happened!! The Cullens and their friends just talked it out with the Volturi and the Volturi just decided to leave and not fight with them. So in the end nobody died. There should have been some killing,after all the book has vampires and werewolves!!
Then she throws in some other werewolves that didn’t really fit in with her little story. I don’t know what was the point of them. Again, this shows how bad of a writer she is.
And I still don’t understand how the werewolves are enemies of vampires. If you’re an enemy with someone then you should have a way to destroy them or get in their way somehow. But then again, she didn’t really write the books that way.
And lastly there is Charlie. I have never read the other books but here it showed me how stupid and not caring he is. Bella didn’t have to sacrifice him at all. He decided to just not care and not get in her way. I laughed when he was in the book. I mean what person says “I don’t want to know” when he just saw someone turn into a werewolf? Charlie.
There I am done. It took me like four days to write this. And I know that I will never ever read any of her books or this one again. Enough said.

About the Author:
I was born in Connecticut in 1973, during a brief blip in my family’s otherwise western U.S. exitence. We were settled in Phoenix by the time I was four, and I think of myself as a native. The unusual spelling of my name was a gift from my father, Stephen (+ ie = me). Though I have had my name spelled wrong on pretty much everything my entire life long, I must admit that it makes it easier to google myself now.
I filled the “Jan Brady” spot in my family-the second of three girls. Unlike the Brady’s, none of my three brothers are steps, and all of them are younger than all the girls. I went to high school in Scottsdale, Arizona, the kind of place where every fall a few girls would come back to school with new noses and there were Porsches in the student lot (for the record, I have my original nose, and never had a car until after I was in my twenties). I was awarded a National Merit Scholarship, and I used it to pay my way to Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah. I majored in English, but concentrated on literature rather than creative writing, mostly because I didn’t consider reading books “work” (as long as I was going to be doing something anyway, I might as well get course credit for it, right?).
I met my husband, Pancho (his real name is Christiaan), when I was four, but we were never anywhere close to being childhood sweethearts. In fact, though we saw each other at least weekly through church activities, I c
an’t recall a single instance when we so much as greeted each other with a friendly wave, let alone exchanged actual words. This may have been for the best, because when we did eventually get around to exchanging words, sixteen years after our first meeting, it only took nine months from the first “hello” to the wedding. Of course, we were able to skip over a lot of the getting to know you parts (many of our conversations would go something like this: “This one time, when I was ten, I broke my hand at a party when-” “Yeah, I know what happened. I was there, remember?”) We’ve been married for ten and a half years now, and have three beautiful, brilliant, wonderful boys who often remind me chimpanzees on crack. I can’t write without music, and my biggest muse is, ironically enough, the band Muse. My othe
