Breaking Dawn

by Ginny C

WARNING:  This post may contain spoilers.  Do not read ahead if you haven’t read the book.

Ok, now that that’s out of the way.  Several weeks ago when Breaking Dawn was released, I wrote a post asking what you thought would happen and what you hoped would happen.  It’s been over a month since it was published and it’s time for a follow-up to see if it met or exceeded your expectations.  Or if it completely failed and you would rather pretend it had never been written.

I have conflicting feelings about it.  It’s nice to have it wrapped up and see everyone live happily ever (and ever and ever, in some cases) after.  But, I did not care for Renesmee or her storyline with Jacob.  That minor quibble aside, I thought it mostly lived up to my expectations.

So, your feelings about Breaking Dawn?  Did you love it?  Did you hate it?  Do you have a favorite in the series?  Share your opinions in the comments.  And don’t forget that Twilight the movie comes out November 21.  We’ll meet back here again after it’s released to discuss it, the actors, and how true it was to the book.

Okay, I’ll go first! I hated it up until page 100 or so, and then I hated it slightly less. I was totally Team Jacob and disappointed in the Team Edward direction things were going. By the end, though, I was more or less reconciled with it. Part of me still wishes I’d stopped after book three…I did come around to Edward’s side by the end, though. And Renesmee…well…maybe if she’d had a better name I would have liked that part more 😉

I agree with Nolan. I had a hard time with it until Alice had her vision then I couldn’t put it down. I was Team Jacob as well so I was happy that he at least had a part in their lives in the end. Overall, I would say that I loved books 2 and 3 the best but I appreciated the closure Breaking Dawn brought. I still recommend the series to everyone I meet!
