Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn. Bought it at 12:00am this morning. Stayed up all night reading it.
I don't know what Steph was a smoking but she totally ruined the series with this book so do yourself a favor, stop at Eclipse and make up your own ending. You'll be much happier - trust me.

Awww, that is such a disappointment. So sorry. I hate it when a series just dies at the end.

Oh Lawfrog, I was so angry and upset when I finished the book. I don't want to ruin it for anyone so I haven't posted why I don't like it but I can safely say it is nothing like it's nothing like the previous three.

I wish I knew what you didn't like about it as well. I finished it on Sunday, but I liked it for the most part. I think it ended OK after Ms. Meyer threw in that little "twist" at the beginning, although there were some loose ends she left. The resolution seemed kind of half assed.

Woot, you read it so I can write what I didn't like. That's why I waited lol.

I didn't like much of it - the characters changed, Jasper became "Jazz" and Rosalie became "Rose". There was no story other than the baby who conveniently came along and decided the entire plot:

Bella's Transformation
Jacob's Imprinting
Volturi Coming to Town

And as if that wasn't bad enough, we get Bella being superuber, no problems with her changes, no bloodlust, an amazing power AND she gets to keep her human relationship aka her Dad.

It was all written to give me what I wanted: Edward and Bella together, living happily ever after. But it failed to deliver that human element, the love, the sacrifice that I came to adore the series for. In fact, Edward is just a secondary character in this one, falling behind Jacob and Renesmee (who names their kid that?)

There is so much, I should blog it! LOL!
