Breaking Dawn – Spotlight & Review
Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer
( From Inside Cover )
“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? “
This is the fourth and final book in Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series and after reading about a lot of the “hullabaloo” over the topics brought up in this book and her choice of an ending, I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I wish there were more books coming in this series besides the book Midnight Sun which are the same events in Twilight, but told from Edward’s perspective instead of Bella’s. I love that idea though, and am looking forward to reading that book as well. You can read chapter 1 on Stepanie’s Website.
There were a couple of plot twists that kind of weirded me out in Breaking Dawn, but the rest of the story was awesome! I don’t want to give any spoilers away for those who haven’t had the chance to read it yet, so I’ll just suffice it to say that Breaking Dawn will remain on my Keeper Shelf to be re-read again in the future.
I also just gave my sister the series to read and she’s half-way through Eclipse and LOVING them all so far. She told me that she gets what the big deal about these books is all about now, and she can hardly wait to go and see the movie with me in November. So, I continue to be a huge Stephanie Meyer fan! 🙂
I’m open for discussing details with anyone who wants to, in the comments here, so be warned that there may be SPOILERS in the comments of this post.
