Breaking Dawn Bad Reviews and Spoilers!!

Book Cover

Uh Oh Breaking Dawn is getting BAD Reviews!!  So Far on Amazon out of 97 reviews here is the chart:

5 star:20%(20)
4 star:5%(5)
3 star:6%(6)
2 star:21%(21)
1 star:46%(45)

Don’t Read any further if you don’t want to know the Spoilers!!   Here are some of the things I found.  Granted I haven’t read it yet, and want to judge for myself, but now I am wondering what in the world is going on with all these bad reviews.  If you have read it please tell me your thoughts!!  I should be getting it this week.

After the much-anticipated wedding of Bella and Edward, the two embark on a romantic retreat that leads to the conception of an impossible half-human, half-vampire child. The birth of this hybrid leads to an equally manufactured appearance of the feared Volturi — an Italian vampire coven met in New Moon that plays as all vampires’ judge, jury, and executioner.

Bella didn’t have to sacrifice anything apparently. She gets Edward AND a baby AND immortality as a vampire. What about poor Jake–not a problem, he IMPRINTS on the baby, which I find disturbing

Bella’s power is that she’s a shield. She can put a shield around people and then mind powers won’t work on the people in the shield.   Jane’s power, for example, won’t work if you’re in the shield. And she learned that she can project her past thoughts into Edward’s head.

A Forced happy ending,   A slap in the name of Feminism,   Petition for a re-write,

First, Breaking Dawn begins with Bella remembering when she told her father, Charlie about her engagement to Edward Cullen, a vampire. Of course, Charlie has no idea that Edward and his family are vampires, or that his daughter is planning on marrying Edward and becoming a vampire herself. Surprisingly, Charlie isn’t too surprised by her announcement.

The first 7 chapters are about Bella’s wedding and honeymoon to Isle Esme, her new vampire mother-in-law’s private island. (Apparently, vampires are very rich, or at least the Cullen family is) Making love with Edward is a problem: he is supernaturally strong, and very afraid he will loose control and hurt her/bite her. Even with those risks, they somehow manage to have a decent honeymoon. Until…

Bella starts feeling funny. She is throwing up, having strange food cravings, and her period is 5 days late. But, she’s only been honeymooning for 2 weeks, it couldn’t be possible that she is pregnant, can it?? Apparently YES, she can be.

Now, this is where the story really lost its reality: vampires are DEAD. Having children should NOT be a possibility, but for Bella and Edward, a reality they will have to face, VERY soon. Bella’s pregnancy is VERY accelerated, and no one is sure what sort of child she will have, vampire, human, vampire human hybrid??

Now the point of view switches to Jacob, Bella’s best friend, who is a shape shifting werewolf. He is devastated by Bella’s marriage, deeply concerned for her safety while honeymooning, and can’t stand the thought of her a)becoming a vampire and b)being with someone besides himself. Now, Jacob and his pack have to make a decision about Bella. The Cullen family promised that they would never bite a human, and if they did, the wolves could hunt them and kill them. Obviously, Bella’s situation is NOT something the wolves bargained for: a human WANTING to be willingly bitten.

Without spoiling the ending, Twilight fans, this book DOES wrap up the story with Bella and Edward nicely. SHE DOES become a vampire

  1. leah clearwater and jake should be together … think about it!!!

  2. I didn’t read your whole post, although Breaking Dawn has already been partially spoiled for me. I wasn’t as excited for Breaking Dawn as some of the Twilighters before (I like the Twilight series, but I’m not obsessed with it), but seeing some of the bad reviews makes me want to read it now…lol

  3. Natalie Stewart says:

    I thought the ending was quite good actualy. I don’t know what people expected…all the Cullens being decapitated by the Volturi? Bella and Jacob getting together? Although the last 200 pages of the book weren’t extraordinary they sufficed.

  4. I did not like this book.
    In fact, if this book was NOT part of the Twilight saga (now desperately wishing it was a trilogy), I would have probably hated this book.
    And, in a completely cucumber-cool, non-ranting way, I’ll list you the reasons why. There will be spoilers!!!
    1. I felt like someone else had asked Stephenie for her characters, and then did with them what they willed. The tone the other three books followed was completely altered from. Now, I do not think Stephenie is a bad writer. I think that she did not live up to the potential she COULD have achieved. We saw some of that in The Host.
    2. Bella got pregnant. I literally, honest to God, dropped the book from my hands, shouted ‘Are you KIDDING me?’ to the heavens, before storming off to play several theaurapeutic rounds of Solitaire. Firstly, if vampires were NOT shooting blanks, after several centuries, don’t you think someone would have noticed? I was just… disappointed. I considered pregnancy when I was speculating possible plots beforehand, and was like ‘Eh, Stephenie’s much too creative for that!’. I’m doubting that though…
    3. OOC! Out of character! Everything and everyone was. Alice was… different. Edward wanting to immediately abort HIS child? What happened to the loveable martyr in him? I want him back… Bella went from teenager to, well, incredibly old mother. It was just too A to B to me with no transition time. I felt like I didn’t know the characters at all. Cept’ Jacob. Let’s get this straight. I am on Team Edward one-hundred percent, so you know there’s something wrong when the book in JACOB’S perspective was my favorite…
    4. Bella was, as some would say, a Mary Sue. She got everything she wanted. Had her cake and ate it too. Everyone loves her in the end. She’s all powerful and beautiful and loses NOTHING. So much for making sacrifices for true love. She didn’t even have a hard time with vampirism! For Christ’s sake, there was no change at all! Sure there were a few lines about a burning in her throat and a mysterious ‘eighth color’, but honestly!
    5. And now for a reason I’ve heard noone mention from the start of the series. Humanity, this life with which everyone must make due, is not cherished one bit. I just think it’s… wrong. She didn’t even understand the full scope of WHAT she was giving up. I felt like humanity wasn’t worth a nickel. It was tossed away like an old pair of shoes…
    6. Renesmee is the worst kind of cheese any child has ever been named after. Let us completely kill originality with cliches, shall we?
    7. Jacob…imprinted… on… Nessie? Are you joshing me? Now, where I steph, I would’ve have made him fall in love with Leah to show that love CAN happen outside this mystical, hocus-pocus nonsense. But… I’m not Meyer. And she went in a very… sick direction with that. Although I did get over it after a while. That wasn’t my number one reason. Just something that was a little off I thought.
    8. OOOO, the book had me thinking once upon a time, there’s going to be a massive showdown with the Volturi! How utterly, rapturously exciting! But… I was wrong. Unresolved conflict. Annoying. Sort of felt like I was all dressed up with nowhere to go…
    9. The magic was lost. Yes, folks. The sexual tension and deep out of this world love Edward and Bella felt was reduced to something trivial I thought. Sure they SAID it was the same. But I didn’t really feel it. I forever mourn its loss…
    There.
    Hate me.
    I’ll say this for Breaking Dawn: It had a pretty cover.
    And thank you, book, for curing my Twilight obsession.

    • This book was an effing joke! R u kidding me?! I thought everything after the wedding reeked! I really need SM’s email address so that I can ask her wtf was she thinking. Everyone ended up happy? Wow. I’m so disappointed at Bella going from “oh, I’m such a klutzy weak person” to “I’m going to kill you” wow, it took her literally 2 or 3 days to totally change EVERYTHING about her. Edward sucked. He was a wimp and not at all passionate. Alice was an aye hole. This book was definitely the cure to my Twilight obsession. I am anxious to see how they will make Kristen Stewart beautiful though, because she looks a hot mess. They are gonna need the best make-up people in the world to achieve this! lol. Thanks a bunch, SM. You literally wasted 700+ pages and sooo much of my damn time. UGH!

  5. Izzy Dolsum says:

    I just finished breaking dawn and I thought it was awful. It was like she tried to take every fanfic plot and mold them together. Her editor should be fired…

  6. I am really surprised at all the negative reviews. I LOVED this book! I think that it is better than the first three and I thought that they were excellent. I loved the plot twists and since I didn’t hear spoilers beforehand I was blown away by Meyer’s bold choices. To me, that makes her a better author. I thought that she stayed true to the characters and, well, it was a fitting end to the series. Some people are upset about some of her decisions saying that they were “unbelievable”. However, I think that since the books are about vampires and other supernatural creatures there is already an element of having to suspend the disbelief. I enjoyed the story for what it was…a story!

  7. I could describe my thoughts of Breaking Dawn completely in one word: disappointed. I was absolutely dumb-struck at the “Oh my God, I’m pregnant” fiasco (I stayed well-away from the spoilers and rumours) and the whole imprinting thing was just…it was just like taking an entire cake away (Bella) and giving him a slice (Renesmee – which, by the way, is an awful name, especially when you’re reading it constantly).
    If you think about it (for those of you who have read it) there wasn’t anything particularly sad, horrific or anything other than euphorically happy after Bella turned into a vampire. I mean, bad things happened occasionally but they weren’t devastating and they certainly weren’t permanent. Sure it was nice to see how the others reacted to her quick control but it sort of let me down. I was hoping for a little bit of action, a little bit of conflict like there was in Eclipse.
    On the whole Team Jacob or Team Edward, it doesn’t really matter to me. I’m not /that/ big of a fan and they each have their good sides. What irked me was the imprinting and the relationship between Jacob, Renesmee, Edward and Bella. Talk about complex and disgusting at the same time. Jacob, you couldn’t get her mom so you take the baby instead? Tsk, tsk.
    If you’re looking for anything other than a love-infested, supposed-to-make-you-feel-good-inside-but-fails ending, you’d better start searching through the tons of fan fiction. I don’t doubt you’d find something better than what Stephenie wrote and that’s sad.

  8. OME! I think the story was great! Do you guys know the reason of all the negative reviews? People are EXPECTING WAY TOO MUCH. Giving their own conclusions and all that. Because of all the Twilight obsession some people were led to believe that this would happen..that would happen. Hey, characters evolve. And Stephenie Meyer deserves an applause.

  9. Imnotsure says:

    I liked some of the book, but to me, her getting pregnant was horrible. Vampires are dead, that means that can’t get anyone pregnant. One other thing that bothered me was there wasn’t enough Bella and Edward for me, and Bella was way too different. I liked the other books because of all of their conversations and that you could actually feel how in love they were, and breaking dawn kind of didn’t show that as much. I really hate Jacob, and I really wish that instead of the second book being in Jacobs veiw, it should have been in Edwards. Really it doesn’t even feel like its related to the first book at all, and its really disappionting. As for what I liked in the book…the first half before Bella got pregnant…and the ending was good…

    I was just really disappionted, I wish she could rewrite it.

  10. noodlebrain says:

    lol well.. it is illogical.. but I really do like this book. I find it really sweet.Though her characters changes tack really fast. And… if fans are disappointed with the pregnancy thing, Then what about other vampire flicks like blade? he’s a half vampire and no one cares about that. And if its about illogical, theres Angel( I know.. bad teen flick XD) He had a baby with another vampire, now thats even more illogical.Then again… if people can swallow that vampires glitter in the sun/have colorful eyes depending on their diet/can’t sleep at all/can resuck venom out of the bloodstream even when it took them a while to realize she was bitten and all the confusion because stephenie meyer wrote it that way then why can’t they take it that a male vampire can impregnate a human womb. *shrugs* the imprinting thing is kinda freaky but I think its one way to bind jacob and bella and edward. At least its better than him getting killed off or something.Some may not like the ending but I find it nice.

  11. Yeah I agree, it definitely didn’t live up to my expectations. The beginning wasn’t too horrible, but then it moved away from what I thought would be the main conflict – Edward vs Jacob and Bella changing into a vampire. When she got pregnant, I was just thinking that it was so wrong and weird. I was really angry when Jacob imprinted on Renesmee – that was horrible. And the end was very anti-climatic and too much happily ever after. It was a too-good-to-be-real sort of scenario. So basically, I was not impressed at all. Other than that, I’m really looking forward to Midnight Sun – that had better be amazing otherwise I will be really really upset.

  12. I absolutely love this book. To me it is better than twilight. I’m not big on vampire books but to me it couldn’t Have ended Any other way. The story was always meant to have a Happy ending. First to all the People who say its sick that jacob imprinted on Nessie are crazy. What else could have happened. We already knew imprinting had no age limit as quil imprinted on claire and she was two. So if We appky a certain kinda of logic. what else makes sense. I always figured Bella would make the transformation to Vampire easily. She was drawn to it. We always knew she felt as if she didn;t belong in the human world. Like she couln’t find a place she fit in. she was always self sacrfising. and your talents are advance when you change. As for the baby. I admit i was so shocked buy that that i mmediatly jumped on the phone to call my best friend even though it was like 6:00 am. but think about it. It was a good twist of events. We don’t know what it was that got her pregnant. it could be some form of venom and not sperm. also it helped ease into bellas transmmision from human to vamp. I love the fact that jacob imprinted on Nessie, Whats better that. I guessed and was quite correct that jakes happiness was in imprinting. Bella had to be with edward or else what really was the point of the first book.

  13. Oh NO! I read Bad Reviews! I didn’t read any more of your post – sorry, but my copy is on the way and I don’t wanna ruin the surprise…that is, if there is any…lol!

    I’ll keep this on Google Reader and be back when I am finished reading.

  14. I feel a bit bad for the book. I haven’t read anything by Stephenie Meyer, but Breaking Dawn has a beautiful cover, so I was hoping that it would get some more love.

    ~ Popin

  15. When the book came out, I ran to the shelves, tore it open, and dug into what I hoped would be an excellent ending to a saga I’ve been following since the beginning. The wedding described was beautiful. Full of detail and love, very Stephanie Meyer. The honeymoon was cool. (although I was a little irked that Bella’s first time felt rather than a little painful, but hey that’s just me.) Suddenly, tragedy strikes. Bella gets pregnant. What the hell??? As soon as I found out, I literally dropped the book in complete awe and I almost started crying. To me, that just ruins everything. Edward is a vampire, he can’t…What? Haha yeah. Basically, that whole motherhood ideal, where women are born to make babies and love their babies unconditionally with everything they have because it is a “natural instinct,” does not sit well with me. So then I read up to the point until Jacob’s book, and I was done. He’s never been my favorite character, and I did not wish to read anything in his perspective. After reading some spoilers, I do not regret not finishing the book. There were so many different places Meyer could have taken Breaking Dawn, and she chose that way. Wow. I was disappointed to say the least, but I’m happy I’m not alone in this. Absolutely ridiculous. Reading some of these reviews, someone said that Meyer’s bold choices makes her a better author. I didn’t think about it in that way, and I agree. Her twists and turns shows her courage as an author.

    I’m just glad I stopped reading. I do not need to finish it, now or ever. The Twilight saga started out to be something awesome, but gradually turned into something…not so much.

  16. I’ve got to say, I was dissapointed.
    The pregnancy made me want to gag, and not because I’m immature about that sort of thing… it was just TOO out there. The series is about BELLA and EDWARD… not a baby. Now, there will be something in the world she loves more than Edward. Were she human, I’d maybe be okay with that…but the series has ONLY been about her love for Edward. Now he’s second to her impossibly conceived child.

    There wasn’t enough Edward-Bella going on. The first three books build up this great relationship, using beautiful writing to show how much they are in love. And then it’s like… that goes away. She might mention Edward’s perfection once a chapter. Well, if the first three couldn’t go a page without (giving an exception to New Moon) mentioing Edward, this one shouldn’t be any different.

    It was WAAAAYY to adult-like. Black, frilly Lingerie? Bella wanting sex on every page? I know little kids that read this book! It was trashy.

    Bella was NOT herself. She wasn’t Bella. Edward wasn’t Edward. Alice wasn’t Alice… my three favrotie characters became someone else. It was SO out of character that it was terrible.

    It sounded like she got a friend to write it for her when she got tired. We were all hypnotized by her beautiful writing style in the first three. She managed to take a cliche and supernatural vampire story and make it wonderful. And then… it’s like we’re spiraling into bad writing and super SciFi. Ugh.

    It was too easy for Bella. Everyone likes perfection, but no one gets it. It was TOO unreal. She didn’t even have to worry about thirst. She was fine. Everything went too wonderfully for her.

    So much for a huge, big battle scene to end the series, the protagonists coming out on top with a few casualties along the way, making you cry of course, but love those who survived.

    I wanted to see WAY more of her old life. Part of the reason I loved Twilight was because it was set in this small town, with small town customs. she had these great friends and families… and she just forgets them all. In that goodbye to Charlie after the wedding, she could have done so much more. Bella shouldn’t be so excited to leave her father. I can understand her friends… to some extent, but not Charlie. She was pushing him to the back of her mind; something no REAL person would be able to do. He would weasel his way back to the front again all the time.

    Jacob’s imprinting on Renesmee makes it seem like he never REALLY wanted to be Bella’s friend, but he was just drawn to her because of what would happen. I didn’t like that. It made the friendship seem… almost forced.

    In short… dissapointed. I wasn’t pleased until Jacob’s POV came, because it made it seem like the old books again. I wanted to read a conclusion to the TWILIGHT series, not this.

  17. After reading these reviews, it makes me wonder whether I want to read Breaking Dawn. What am I saying? I know, but I’m scared to read in case I end up hating it…or if I foolishly love it….

  18. I’m happy to see people are reading and thinking about what they’ve read. That’s all I really care about!

  19. hmm really you loved it?
    im not gonna lie, im a HUGE HUGE fan. I’ve been reading the books since twilight first came out a couple of years ago and i was literally dying waiting for this book to come out. Personally though, i didnt like it at all! as soon as bella found out she was pregnant it turned me right off the book. How many times has stephenie gone on and on about how when you turn into a vampire you die? Yet magically Renesmee happens? what the heck. they try and say the whole “seventy year old man thing” to cover it up, but are you telling me a seventy year old corpse can still impregnate someone? Hmm.. After the whole werewolf nessie drama was over i also found the book painfully boring right up untill the volturi arrived. All in all, i feel this book is the worst in the series and that she probably rushed to make deadlines. and no i did not like the ending, I think she made it too perfect. As sad as i would have been edward and bella should have died to save nessie and Jacob and they should have been the only ones who lived on. breaking dawn was a big let down for me, and it kicked her below JK Rowling on my favorite authours. Sorry stephenie, you fail.

  20. I think Breaking Dawn was horrible.
    Edward, Bella, Jacob stud service?
    I think SM lost track of her characters. Alice is hardly in this book and has been a main stay for the first three.
    Edward was a sissy. He wouldn’t even go against Rose.
    SM was a sell out and this was a terrible end to a wonderful series.

  21. edwardlover says:

    i was sad and disappointed when i found out bella was pregnant..it was just weird and i felt like innocence was just gone. i didnt want her relationship with edward to change especially because he reacted so violently to the news. and the birth was too freaking gory for my taste. i wish SM had lightened that up a tad. love seth, love leah. i thought the wolf pack stuff was unnecessary. like the splitting of the packs. i thought alice&jasper leaving as well as the j. jenks thing was unnecessary. i thought the introduction of soooooo many new characters was annoying. so many gifts and names to keep up with, it was just a bit overwhelming! it was like SM was cramming in everything. plotlines got a bit tangled for me.. things were just weird adn i felt a little uncomfortable reading it sometimes. but the part that really bothered me was how in eclipse, the emphasis on the bella jacob edward love triangle was ridiculus. this is stressed further wehn jacob shows up at the wedding and is clearly still in love with and still longing to fight for bella. yet the triangle is abandoned so quickly i found it a bit stupid! why emphasize this connection between bella and jacob so thoroughly only to have it broken as soon as she becomes a vampire! they suddenly just dont want each other at all anymore. weird yo. and it was weird how bellas perspective really didnt change much when she was a vampire. i liked that though. and i thought it was brilliant writing the middle through jacobs perspective it was really interesting and enjoyable. i hated how rose didnt care for bella and yet seh used her for the baby- bella didnt even notice this! loved jakes blonde jokes and emmetts scoring jokes. hated how alice probably said ten things through the whole book. jasper was a dick for a lot of the time. idk i thought the end was perfect- edward and bella together forever with their child. the name will continue to bother me to no end- thanks a bunch SM, you couldnt have thought of a better one!? i do loev the afforementioned esmeree- thats pretty:) but anyhoo, the end was very nice. loved the sex parts because i love any emphasis on bella and edwards love which was kinda played down what with the imprintinga nd baby and alice abandoning and all that jazz. overall, an okay book. i didnt think it lived up to the others but i enjoyed it and have closure with the characters. the others were much much better as were the plotlines but what can you do? tahnks SM for ending my favorite series of books with a bang!

  22. I was so hoping that Bella wouldn’t get pregnant – when I read that, I was like, “Wtf?!!! Shit! Are you effing kidding me?!” I always thought vampires couldn’t have or make babies – I mean, wouldn’t you think that the venom would kill all sperm?

    First of all, the name ‘Renesmee’ is… well, annoying, and ‘Nessie’ isn’t catchy either. Also, the relationship between Edward and Renesmee wasn’t very developed or descriptive – Renesmee seemed to always focus on Bella. Most little girls adore their fathers, and it just seemed that the relationship between Edward and Renesmee was barely there (especially with the amount of emotion Edward has for Bella, you’d think there would be more between his daughter and him.) Plus, the whole ‘Jacob-imprinting-on-Renesmee’ thing was just majorly weird. I understand Stephenie wanting Jacob to have a happy ending, but that was so odd.

    Also, Bella seemed so different than the last three books (which were amazing!) Her personality changed, and the romance between her and Edward wasn’t as much there as the other books – the book seemed to focus more on Renesmee and Jacob’s angst. Not enough Edward for me.

    Lastly, it just seemed like Bella got everything back that she was supposed to lose for the love of her life (personally, I’m still in love with Edward, no matter what), and that bothered me. She didn’t have to give up Charlie and she got a daughter – it just seemed like Stephenie was trying to give Bella everything, and that’s not what Bella really needed.

  23. This book was horrible! I agree with most of the people on this site.
    I liked it at the beggining but then she is having a baby. WHAT?!? I cried when I found out. (I knew that there was a possibilty that this could happen but I was hoping that Stephenie Meyer wouldn’t be stupid enough to do that.)

    And the babys name just sucks.( I mean really I like Nessie ten times more then Renesmee and thats saying something.)

    Also what happened to the main plot of all the other books, Bella and Edwards relashonship. They kind of got lost with all the other crap going on. This isn’t about having a family its about a vampire and human falling in love. I got over them getting married but having a baby. Ugh.

    I was also really annoyed when they didn’t fight. I was expecting a big battle like in the 7th Harry Potter book. And that some people would die. (I know it sounds mean and all but when Fred died in Harry Potter it just made it that much better.)

    And how was Bella able to ‘share’ her shield without practcing that much. Kate had practised for years and couldn’t do that much. (I hated that at the end Edward could read her thoughts. In the other books he could mostly understand her without reding her mind. I thought that that was kind of cool. She was his one expection)

    And all of the charcters wer lost. People were able to relate to Bella in the other books because she wasn’t perfect and in this book she pretty much was. And Alice totally changed. Emmet did to. He was still funny but in the other books when ever he talked I wouldn’t be able to stop laughing.

    I’m team Edward but he was getting on my nerves almost as much as Bella was in this book. They both changed for the worst. Bella is eighteen going on 80. And what happened to the Edward I loved. In the first book he still made crpitic cracks and stuff. In this book he pretty much lacked a personality.

    And I love Jacob too but I hate how a lot of the book was in his P.O.V. These books are supposed to be Bella’s side of the story, NOT Jacob. I had to go watch Buffy to calm myself down.

    I was hoping that Leah and Jake would get togther but after reading the beggining of the book I knew Meyer wouldn’t be smart enough to do that. Not everyone has to imprint to find love. And it is kinda funny that because Jacob can’t have Bella he has her daugter.

    In the other three books I liked how she still had her family but in this book she never even thought about Renee.Charle was kinda out of it. I always suspected him to care more and not be like ‘i don’t want to know anything’.

    And what bugged me the most was that the book ended perfectly for everyone. Happily ever after. Like a neat little bow. Nobody died or got hurt or anything. All was good in vampire world. Being a vampire dosen’t seem that bad…

    Sorry if you don’t agrre with me but this is my opinion.

  24. Horribly disappointed. I devoured all three books and was really looking forward to the conclusion. Throughout the first three books, I loved the battle between Bella’s desire for Edward and her humanity, however tortured it could be. I must admit I had hoped there would be a way to unite Edward and Bella while keeping her humanity. As soon as the pregnancy was introduced, the book went downhill fast. I didn’t feel like I was reading about the same characters anymore. And the creepy imprinting with Jacob? It was creepy with Claire; it went beyond creepy with the baby and became downright disturbing. I wish I hadn’t read this last book, I wish Meyers gave her characters a storyline and dialogue that were true to them, and I wish she could call this novel a very rough draft and rewrite it. Sad how the final book could almost ruin the other three.

  25. So, let’s see: Bella gives up her humanity, her chance at education, her family, and her friends . . . to become a teenage mother with a high-school diploma. Wonderful. This book was so awful! I didn’t recognize these characters and their choices, which were too simplistic and out of character. Now the excitement over the movie is going to be mingled with the horrible knowledge of how this story ended. Fans of these novels deserved better.

  26. It was very… unexpected. For me, it was like the last Harry Potter book. It about sums it up, yet I need I feel like the author would be all,”Oh just kidding. It doesn’t really happen like this.” And Renesmee? Awful, it’s the equivalent to Albus Severus if not worse. I was happy Bella and Edward ended up together despite liking Jacob better. But it was too predictable, like the Harry Potter pairings. She didn’t have any problems being a newborn, but think about it. It would of been boring and worse off in Stephenie decided to write pages and pages of Bella writhing in agony. You have to see it through both perspectives. Though I didn’t exactly get why Caius wanted Irina to die so much. Kind of a stupid excuse to declare war.

  27. I thought as a stand alone book it would be OK, but as part of the Twilight series it was way, way off. The tone was so different, the characters did not act like themselves, Bella’s voice was unrecognizable. There were so many plot holes and so many points that could have been left out entirely:
    -sending Bella to search for the lawyer, get fake papers, that never became needed
    -fake out that Leah and Jacob might get together, leave Forks and start new lives, only to have Jacob imprint on Nessie
    -Where the heck was Bella’s mom!? If Renee freaked out when Bella almost got squished by the car (book 1), she sure would have cared that Bella was supposedly so ill
    -Why so many typos! Did anyone bother to copy-edit?
    I liked “The Host”, so I’ll read other books from Stephanie Meyer, but this one is devoid of magic it’s hard to believe she wrote it and it’s the final Twilight book. It’s no better than fan fiction. Her editor should be fired too. It’s so sad really.

  28. *Some spoilers

    This book was TOTALLY disappointing.
    In New Moon, i HATED Jacob. But in Breaking Dawn, i even LIKED his character, theres’s something really wrong with that. I thought this whole series was suppose to be mainly on Edward and Bella.
    Like alot of the comments up there, i nearly dropped the book when I read she was preg.
    First of all, you backtrack to Twilight when she’s just your average teenage girl, shy and innocent. Then you read along and come to THIS book and she gets married/honeymoon/knocked up and has a BABY and becomes a MOM? After I read that she got preg, I was pretty disappointed in the book, thought it would be tons better. Secondly, EVERYTHING just happens to end up nice and sweet for her like some fairytale. She has a family, nothing with the Volturi, she even goes to Dartmouth supposedly, this book is an unbelievable wreck. No difficulties even becoming a vampire. And Jacob and the baby…that was just kinda disturbing, I thought it would have been likely that he ended up with Leah. And also, wth kinda name is Renesmee!? I know it’s nice to have a unique name since shes a rare kind but really now… I could only imagine what will become of Breaking Dawn if it becomes a future movie…

  29. Okay. I tried really hard to like this book. I contemplated whether or not I liked it for a good 12 hours after finishing it. But the truth is: I don’t.

    I’ll start at the beginning. That was the only part I really liked. I’m not big on weddings, but that was actually nice. Except for Jake. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jacob. Not as much as Edward, but still. But sticking to his personality in the other books, he wouldn’t have gone to the wedding. Didn’t he decide to leave Forks immediately after he received the invitation? Wasn’t that the whole point of his sudden trip to Canada and the whole “More wolf than man” thing? I mean, come on! Didn’t Seth even tell Bella that Jake had no intention of ever returning? At least not in the near future. *screams*

    Then the island. Not too bad. Bella’s personality seemed true enough then. At least it did to me. And then, it happened. Edward knocked her up even though he was a vampire and, technically, dead. And had been for almost a century. At first, the pregnancy didn’t seem bad to me, to be honest. Kinda cute, I thought. A little Edward. But on second thought, horribly wrong. And I just knew that it would ruin Bella and Edward’s relationship. I knew immediately that she would love “it” more than Edward. Ugh. Would SM really do this to all her predominantly teenage female fanbase? I wondered. Yes, she could.

    And then the POV switch. Not a good idea. I never really liked the idea of her writing through Jake’s mind. I had a hard time even reading Eclipse’s epilouge I was so…I can’t even find the word. Still, I tried to enjoy it. In some ways I did. The blonde jokes. The fact that it freaked him out that he actually agreed with Edward most of the time. The sarcasm in the chapter titles. But it was stuck in my head all the way though, Why would SM make this change? I came up with a few reasons:

    1-Bella died. She couldn’t possibly expect to try to write from Bella’s perspective in the afterlife. If she wrote from Jake’s POV, at least Team Jacob’s might finish the book.

    2-Bella would go through something that she couldn’t explain well enough through her eyes. Example: Her giving birth to…well, you know.

    3-She wanted to. Hell, if I was an author, I wouldn’t waste my time writing something I didn’t want to be writing. No matter how many obsessive fangirls I would piss off. (This seemed to be the choice she had made.)

    Anyway, I worked my way through Book two. Painfully. It scared me that I kinda enjoyed it. Ugh. I didn’t want to be reading through Jake’s POV. I would be Team Edward until the end of time.
    I hoped it would get better when I returned to reading from Bella’s POV. It didn’t

    First we go through a few pages worth of “What’s happening? Am I dead? Am I a vampire? Oh my f***ing god this hurts like hell! But I can’t scream.” Please.

    And then Jake imprinted. Ew. I could just imagine what their children would look like. If that was even possible. But now I didn’t put it below SM to do that. We all know it was strange enough that Bella and Edward could fall in love and manage a relationship. But a werewolf (Oh, I’m sorry Shape-shifter!) and a vampire/human hybrid? Not to mention that fact that Jake was just a few years older than…Nessie. Ugh.

    And now I come to the worst part of the whole book and series. Renesmee. I cannot describe the unparallel hatred I feel for any little girl, not to mention one that ruined my favorite book series. I have seen too many cute (note sarcasm) little faces with little cute curls with little cute dimples in their little cute cheeks. AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS COULD NOT BE HAPPENING!!!!

    I might be able to stand it if it were a little boy. They, at least, could do more than stare at Barbies all day. But a little girl!!! I know people will hate me for this, but I’d rather die old and alone than have to raise a daughter. I honestly cannot imagine that I ever was one.

    And her name! Was Bella really that in tune with the modern celebrity parents to name her daughter *wince* Renesmee! I mean, Apple is better! At least that sounds appetizing. But I guess I should have expecred as much. A hybrid name for a hybrid child. It made sense.

    And then. After that. Nothing happened.

    Everything went back to normal. Except, of course, for the fact that she was a vampire now. I honestly never expected for SM to actually have Bella become one. That’s not how the stories worked. Not that I didn’t want her to be happy forever and always next to Edward, but…Ugh! Hasn’t SM read Tuck Everlasting?! Romeo and Juliet, even. The star-crossed lovers don’t end up together. They never do except in C-grade chick flicks! That was part of the magic. To finish reading a book and not like the ending. Or to at least have a bittersweet feeling to go along with the victory.

    There has to be a bittersweet element to any story or else the reader will consciously know hat it was all a fantasy. Almost every book I’ve read had a bit of sadness at the end.
    For example:

    Lord of the Rings: The ring was destroyed. Victory! But people died and Frodo left. Bittersweet.

    Harry Potter: Voldemort defeated. Victory! But people died and the main characters gave awful names to their children. Bittersweet.

    Series of Unfortunate Events: In everybook they stopped whatever or whoever was after them. But they still had to keep on surviving after having lost their parents and friends. Bittersweet.

    Tuck Everlasting: Whinnie kept her mortality, including her family. But she lost the love of her life forever. Bittersweet.

    Romeo and Juliet: Their love ended the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. But they both died. Bittersweet.

    Breaking Dawn: Bella became a vampire of her own free will. She married the sexiest vampire she could imagine. She had a daughter *wince* that was everything a mother could dream of in a child. She had her family: human, vampire, and werewolf alike. She had money, self-control, power over the Volturi. But where is the sad part. Where is the bittersweet that would inevitably come in the end? Where? Nobody died. Unless you count Irina, which I don’t. They won the battle. What was the point?

    Ugh. I’m running out of words to type in the limited space that I have left. I guess that all I can say is that this book was disapointing. Not horrible. But definately a step down for SM. And she would have a LOT more hate mail coming from the pissed fans. And a lot of sad pleas for an answer as to why she would do this to her beloved Twilight Saga.

    If you actually got through reading this not-exactly-short review/medium-for-getting-this-off-my-chest, I congratulate you. And If you haven’t read BD, don’t. Re-read the first three and then decide for yourself how the story ends. Thanks. 🙂

    Meyers underestimates the intelligence of her fans and writes an absurd book. The pregnancy was just nasty in every way. Poor Bella she deserved better than a science fiction alien type birht for her baby. I felt like the book was a spoof or parody. Meyers is not the best young adult fiction writer, but she did create characters who reflect the angst that teenagers experience when making difficult choices. Yes, this is fantasy but the characters need to make choices consistent with their development through the previous novels. Why would he editors let her write this drivel? I think that they must think that their readers are as stupid and vapid as the characters on reality TV. Her editors don’t realize that young women are intelligent and discerning and they will speak up.

  31. OMG.. tea ur so rite.. JAKE AND LEAH 4EVER!!!
    anyway i hated bd. sm completely ruined and basically made up a load of crap. the parts that pissed me off the most were bella getting pregnant because its IMPOSIBLE!!! I-M-P-O-S-I-B-LE-E!!! HES DEAD FOR CHRISTS SAKE!! and i hated jake imprinting on that THING!!

  32. LittleSeppy says:

    Anyone who likes this book shouldn’t be allowed to read REAL literature. If I was a struggling author and I saw that this piece of crap got published I would be outraged. There are so many ways that this book is wrong but Ill address just two of them:

    One, the baby. If I do recall, in one of the books Meyer stated that vampires have no body fluids except for their venom. Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t SPERM count as a body fluid?

    Two, you made Jacob Black (my favourite char) fall in love with Bella’s baby. Woah, hold on. Lets get this straight, Jacob LOVED Bella, he wanted to INSERT Bella with his penis, he dreamed about her NAKED and now he’s with her child? Wrong on SO MANY levels.

    Meyer, stop trying to make pedophilies acceptable.
    End of.

    I just got done reading the book. Total disappointment for me. I had so many high expectations for Breaking Dawn, because the 3 books before it had me so intrigued. I got disappointed within the first 100 pages for the fact that Bella became pregnant. I kind of thought that would happen, but I thought the Stephanie wouldn’t go that cliche route because her readers would expect more from her. Once Bella got pregnant, I thought I was reading a predictable fanfic, and became really bored with the book, but I continued to read it of course, to see how it ended. I so did not see Jacob’s imprintment to Renesmee coming at all, and I thought it was too weird. But, it did get my attention and gave me the energy to read the rest of the book before I had put the book down altogether. I thought the Twighlight series would go out with pure satisfaction for me, but it just left me disappointed. I do agree that she underestimated her fans’ intelligence. I think Leah and Jacob wouldn’t work out so good as a couple, I just don’t see it. But, they’re better together than him and Renesmee.

  34. I agree with many of you here. Breaking Dawn was a HUGE let down. I am not saying that I had something imagined about how it would end, but I was hoping for something better than this. The more she writes with these characters, the more she streches them out of bounds and makes them different than who they really were. The characters were shallow, and not as likeable as they once were. Alice came out to be a bitch, Rosalie was motherlike… but still bitchy, Jasper was even mean, and Carlisle wasn’t hardly even himself, despite the fact that he wasn’t as strong of a character to begin with. The whole image of Bella being pregnant, bruised, broken bones, thin, feeble… just disturbing. The only parts with some, dare I say it, substance, sounded like they came straight from a grotesque horror movie. Picturing Edward lick her skin wanted to make me crawl out of mine. Unnecessary. And, as a HUGE Team Edward fan, I hate to say this. But, Edward was a pansy. He acted like a love struck, hormonal, teenage girl who wouldn’t stand up for what was right. He should have stuck up for hiself against Rosalie and made Bella realize that this was all wrong. Why couldn’t he have pulled a New Moon and left her there. She would have done anything to get him back, including getting rid of her baby. But, maybe I am wrong. Stephenie Meyer probably wouldn’t allow herself to not be able to use that atrocious excuse for a name… Renesme Carlie. Seriously? I guess the whole thing about being that next J.K.R. went to her head and so she decided to go the whole Albus Severus route. Maybe I am over reacting. But, by that time in the book, I was going to give it one more chance. Then, my worst fear. JACOB AND RENESME FOREVER?!?!?!?! WTF. That was the final straw. Even though I saw it coming, I was hoping she could do SOMETHING better than that. Now that they imprinted, Jacob is going to live forever at the age he is at with the rest of them. As long as vampires are around, which clearly there are plenty of, he is a werewolf/ shape-shifter?. Why wasn’t Renee there though? That bugged me. Every possible point of controversy was solved rather quickly, and without diffuculty, or sacrifice. Bella got everything she wanted. And even more, she got everything she didn’t care about losing. Her human family knew there was something, but didn’t know details. Just too perfect. Happily ever after with her Best Man, and her now fairy boy husband who will do whatever she says, and the only thing she loves more than being the center of attention (Which I seriously think she does. I think she tries to pretend that she hates it, but if you consider everything…) the mutant child. Thanks for giving HER so much power SM. You ruined it. I hate what this saga has become. And, in my mind, it is a trilogy.

    —————–

    These are a few outcomes that I thought of. Not necessarily serious… but funny to think about. Oh, these are all minus the little Loch Ness Monster. Except 4.

    1)When Jake and Bella were alone, he got so angry so fast that even Edward couldn’t save her when Jake broke her neck. Then Edward and Leah imprinted, and Jake… I don’t know what happened to Jake. WAIT, Jake was flying a plane over the Atlantic ocean and got lost in the Bermuda Triangle.

    2)Jacob throws a car at Bella and she died, and Edward died from a broken heart, thinking of Lady Montague from Romeo and Juliet. Alice and Jasper started a psychic service and became even more rich than they already were.

    3)Bella was a crazed newborn, and ended up killing Mike Newton and a few others who were hiking in the woods when she was hunting with Edward. Then, she liked the taste of human blood so much that she loved that more than Edward and left to go and find some nomads to hang with.

    4)In the big confrontation in the end, she took down her sheild once they thought that there wasn’t going to be a problem and Jane and Demetri attacked Edward and Jacob, killing both. She was so upset with what happened, that she blamed it all on Renesme and killed her. Then Rosalie went ape shit and got in a huge battle with Bella. The Volturi were so intrigued that they quickly built some bleechers and started to see some blood cups from the Cullens blood supply. More and more vampires came and bought tickets to see the two fight to the death. Bella wins and Emmett desides to show her how to score the right way.

    So basically, add a pinch of drama, a sprinkle of death, and a dash of originality and it could have been better. Haha.

  35. All the negative reviews make me a bit sad. I have to say that I wasn’t really looking forward to this book and there were times where I wanted to chuck it out the window, but I stuck with it. I like how it turned out. I’m sorry that so many of you don’t feel that way.
    Steph did some weird stuff in this book, and yeah, it could have been a lot better, but it was still GOOD.
    The Jacob/Renesmee imprinting really isn’t any worse than Quil with Claire. No one seems to be throwing a fit over THAT. You also have to take into account that Nessie isn’t your average infant. At the age of just a few months, she was reading and speaking and her body aged continuously. The little girl has the intelligence of someone MUCH older and if you really think about it, she’s not really a baby. It makes me upset that so many people are throwing fits about it. And anyway, just like Quil with Claire, Jacob doesn’t see Nessie as anything sexual and won’t until she is older. As it stood at the end of the book, Jake was the best babysitter EVER and would do nothing to hurt Nessie.
    As for the whole Volturi thing, I agree that that was a letdown. But, I also understand that Bella scared the crap out of Aro with what she did. I would have liked a fight, it would have made it a bit better. But I’m also glad that no one died.
    One more thing: I LOVE Seth Clearwater. He’s my favorite from the pack, and he’s just so cute. He likes vampires and I’m glad he played a part in Breaking Dawn.

    Shoot me if you want, but I liked this book. With every series, there is going to be a flawed book from the readers’ perspective, but that’s okay. Everyone sees things differently and I’m sure that Steph was happy with how she wrote it. All I want to say is THINK before you freak out about something, please? Because maybe, just maybe, if you think about it it might be okay. *Is suddenly reminded of her own blind hatred for the epilogue of Harry Potter…* Okay, I’m a little hypocritical on that, but still! Give Breaking Dawn a chance, and try to see why Steph would write it that way.

  37. I LOVE SETH!!!!!!! But I hate this book!

  38. I agree with everybody that didn’t like the book.
    Also, I found myself wondering…..since Edward got Bella pregnant, he had an erection (obvious…. I guess) and it couldn’t possible be his first. So have he been secretly masturbating for the last hundred years?
    Man, the way Bella talks about the make-love stuff I seriously doubt she’d ever had an orgasm. She describes the kissing with a lot more enthusiasm. Weird!!!!!

  39. twilight is my thing says:

    i was sorda disipointed but it was good. but really the past three books where so awesome it was seiriously totally good. but the relationship of bbella and edward defitnelly died. so not fair thanks alot SM nah just kidden see ya\

    ps. I HATE JACOB

  40. blah blah blah
    I hated it, it was too perfect, etc. I won’t say anything that has already been said about not liking it…

    But…didn’t SM say on a website that vampires had NO bodily fluids (blood, tears, ahem..) So when they had their honeymoon, rather than her getting pregnant, shouldn’t she had turned into a vampire since he has venom, rather than…?

    That was one of my biggest pet peeves with the book. I thought SM was too much of a hypocrite.

    Plus the whole OMG THIS BOOK MIGHT BE AWESUM!!11 and then “whoo hoo happily ever after” The big, no the HUGE buildup and then nothinggg was awful.

  41. Unbelievable!!!
    Bella, who’s always saying she’s a bad lier herself, continues to lie to everybody, cheat, also starts thinking that’s worthy kill some people to get stronger to that damn not-fight and OMG!!!!! she STEALS money from Alice?
    And to hell with Edward too, she only wants him for the whole-night sex.
    Arghhh!!!

  42. GHASTLY

    Sooooo disappointing on so many levels. I like all the rest was so looking forward to the final chapter after build up and build up of tension: sexual, emotional supernatural, …

    I couldn’t wait to see Edward and Bella finally get married and now free of SM’s moral restraint, consummate this built up passion that we all were waiting for and frankly never got (I’m not saying Penthouse forum but c’mon Edward and Bella have the sexiness of a dentist office in this book)

    Then I was deliciously waiting for some real relationship conflict. Would Bella start to resent Edward always ruling over her now that she’s immortal? Something ? ANYTHING??

    No. none of that thank you very much.

    All sexiness devoted to Edward is completely killed turning him into an effeminate sap.

    the whole Cullen family turned into cardboard cutouts of their former selves. Beautiful Alice becomes a glorified wedding planner/fashion consultant, and she’s the only Cullen allowed any treatment at all beyond a few jokes on Emmett’s part and Rosalie’s witchy comebacks.

    Truly, I believe SM let her moralizing take over the series, sacrificing plot and character for a hidden sermon. ( And I LIKE the hidden chastity message in the book, I just thought it could have been handled better)

    OF COURSE Edward must wait to marry Bella before they can have sex

    ( and we must suffer through an overdone long description of flowers dresses etc. Lovely Alice reduced to wedding planner/fashion consultant. If I wanted all that I would be reading a bridal magazine)

    Honeymoon

    Be honest everyone was waiting for this you know it, so many built up tension love scenes, you were just salivating this was gonna be so good right? …

    WRONG!

    Ed and Bella go for a swim…next morning, there are feathers.

    That’s all folks, that’s the big “love scene” you’ve all been waiting for, Bon Appetit.

    and the result of this erm, soggy pillowfight?

    Renesmee. Seriously?

    Sure!, Because there is only one true reason for married folks to have relations anyway and that is PROCREATION

    Everything about the “baby” is just gross gross gross. and just like the baby takes over Bella’s body in its incubation. this “baby” takes over and destroys the story, leaving nothing but carnage in it’s wake.

    we cannot have ANY discussion of the relations of Edward and Bella now, too dirty for young ears, but turning Jacob and Quil into pedophiles is perfectly…OK???

    My advice to those who haven’ read it yet-DON’T!
    Save your money and write your own ending, you’ll do a better job I promise you

    Hi there. So I just concluded the last book of an amazing author’s saga. I actually enjoyed reading all of the above comments and couldn’t help but think of all of us out there who felt sooo passionately about S.M.’S writing. Here are my own itty bittty,love-querk thoughts: I LOVE JACOB BLACK!!! I would like to be a young werewolfe with handsome Jacob, than a newborn vampire with the beautiful Edward. I guess I can give my thanks to Meyer for that. 🙂 What I means is, I did love Edward Cullen in the beginning then, just like lovely Bella, my heart was split into two (kind of like the whole Dawson’s Creek sort of thing) *yeah,my eyes rolling too.* Anyway, the way she developed Jacob’s character developed a new rythm in MY heartbeat. I guess you could say my heart changed as fast as it beats!!!
    In S.M’s defense: JACOB’S BLACK POV, was the highlight of BD, he is sooo COOOL DUDE!

    ALL’S i know is that if it were Jacob and Bella’s honeymoon, bebe, he would NOT handle BELLA so gently. He would be all over her, deeply and passionately. S.M. could have wrote a clean, romantic and passionate love seen for young viewers here. Anyway, I still am sooo eternally grateful that Mrs. Meyer wrote in her heart what she wanted to. Even if this was the least of my favorite, it sure does tell something about her writing. It must be that good if it leaves some of us dissapointed and, like she said in her interview, it may give us ideas to start a novel of ouR own. I love the fact that we can all share our long, short, and hilarious thoughts. Have a blessed one bloodsuckers!!!

  44. Overall this book was just a total letdown, Meyers always goes on in every conference about how the book is great becuase people can relate to the characters- and then in the fourth book she goes and turns all of the characters into saps or bitches and turns sweet little Bella into a sex crazed super-vampire, with a demon child!
    I think the reason that people were so drawn into the first three books was the devotion and edginess surrounding bella and edwards relationship, and in breaking dawn she just slashes it. The ending was just too happy, Bella gets everything she wanted and didnt have to sacrifice a thing..! And dont even get me started on Jacob imprinting with renesmee (Eurgh that name), its just to disturbing for words?
    Im so put out by this book that i would actually suggest that they dont bother making it into a film.
    Plus how many typos were there in this book? Was it edited at all?

  45. I really cant understand why some people think it was a good book. ITS SICK. Ok so you have teenagers getting married, violent sex, teenage pregancy, Imprinting (????), Sexisum against women and SHITTY PLOTS. If meyer had wrote a complete different ending then maybe i would like it. I’m sorry but this book was a DISATER. Bella got EVERYTHING she wanted, Jacob got what he wanted…, Edward got what he wanted… Happy ending right? What about Leah Clearwater… where was her happy ending?! and what the hell…. why wasnt their some epic fight with the Volturi. All this build up for nothing.

    What does this “book” teach teenage girls? that getting married, having violent sex (all the time), giving up everything for a boy, getting pregant ALL BEFORE 20 is fine. Yeah right. This plot fails. End of story.

  46. Taffarella says:

    I completely resisted the twilight saga until very recently- I thought it was just a teenage rom com. How wrong I was! I’ve been in a twilight frenzy ever since. I read the last 2 books over the last few days. I thought I was going crazy – until Breaking Dawn. It has completely cured me. I found it interesting and compelling- but in no way as intoxicating as the other books. It was too ridiculous for that. It was like reading a spoof ending. And now- I can’t ever think of Edward, Jake or Bella without thinking of all the ridiculous storylines! Tragedy for the series but I’m grateful I got my sanity back! Do you think they’ll even be able to make a film of this?!!

  47. BD spat on the face of the other three books. It took the characters and threw them out the window, creating the ability to have a sickly happy ending.
    GIANT PROBLEMS WITH THIS BOOK-
    1. Renesmee. the birth nauseated me, I thought SM had gone insane, just so graphc urgh! bella can have everything she wants-edward jacob child. Too far.
    2. She lost the tone and hypnotic quality of the other books. Her characters becane puppets that could change just to make a happy ending possible.
    3. Jacob imprinted on renesmee???? love for bella forgotten. The whole, we were friends just coz of nessie thing made the friendship and beautifully written bond between them seem like a sham. It basically said- you know new moon, and eclipse..i didnt mean it.
    3. Unbelievable plot. Charlie will stick around but doesnt want to know details…what a coincedance.Bella didnt want to get married, didnt want kids, and she had both. No similarity to other books.
    4. love for edward in other books is tangible. their relationshp smothers every page yet in this book it seemed forced and clearly written by someone.
    SM rushed and created something that almost ruins the series. but I just try to imagine it doesnt exist and create my own ending…aka bella and jacob doing the right thing and choosing each other. bella would face heartbreak but also would have a happy ending. it would be a twist, but a believable one.
