Review

Great love stories thrive on sacrifice. Throughout The Twilight Saga (Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse), Stephenie Meyer has emulated great love stories--Romeo and Juliet, Wuthering Heights--with the fated, yet perpetually doomed love of Bella (the human girl) and Edward (the vampire who feeds on animals instead of humans). In Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final installment in the series, Bella’s story plays out in some unexpected ways. The ongoing conflicts that made this series so compelling--a human girl in love with a vampire, a werewolf in love with a human girl, the generations-long feud between werewolves and vampires--resolve pretty quickly, apparently so that Meyer could focus on Bella’s latest opportunity for self-sacrifice: giving her life for someone she loves even more than Edward. How close she comes to actually making that sacrifice is questionable, which is a big shift from the earlier books. Even though you knew Bella would make it through somehow, the threats to her life, and to her relationship with Edward, had previously always felt real. It’s as if Meyer was afraid of hurting her characters too much, which is unfortunate, because the pain Bella suffered at losing Edward in New Moon, and the pain Jacob suffered at losing Bella again and again, are the fire and the heart that drive the whole series. Diehard fans will stick with Bella, Edward, and Jacob for as many twists and turns as possible, but after most of the characters get what they want with little sacrifice, some readers may have a harder time caring what happens next. (Ages 12 and up) --Heidi Broadhead

Short Desription

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.

5 out of 5 stars I didnt hate it!, September 5, 2008
By romanticrights
I have to disagree with the previous reviewer, the book wasnt a total waste. While I do agree that the ending lacked a good fight scene, I do think the rest of the book up until that point was a really good read. Sure, there are some implausible elements, but really, are vampires really that plausible to begin with? The book, like Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse does call for a suspension of disbelief, but it isnt completely far-fetched because it focuses above all, on the power of love. Yes, there were downsides, mostly centering around the fact that some of the scenes seemed like an elaborate fanfic, and the fade to black on every sex scene, but all in all, I didnt hate it! And just to defend SMeyer for a second, I dont think the book could have ended any other way. I mean, had they fought the Volturi, they would have all died. Every last one of them. And I guarantee you, that would have been a worse ending. Would I buy it again? Absolutely. Its a good ending. I cant wait for Edwards perspective!

2 out of 5 stars Surprised, August 7, 2008
By twilightmom2
Not as well written as the others. In my perspective. No excitement. No fighting, no heart pounding suspense as the others were where I couldnt put the book down to find out what happens next. I CAN and Have put this one down. Really a child that ages so fast! A half vampire should slow down the process not up it. I dont know I wasnt impressed with this story line. Yes I liked the fact that they got married, but I thought that things were going to happen when that happened. All could of worked out in the end but the middle could of really got going, nothing was exciting through this whole book. Boring Boring BORING!!!!
