    If you loved Breaking Dawn and don’t want to see it criticized I’ll warn you now not to read my review That being said let me begin by saying that when I first read Twilight I was hooked I read New Moon in one sitting I awaited the release of Eclipse with great anticipation Sadly Eclipse was the beginning of the end It left me disappointed enough not to have high expectations for Breaking Dawn Even at that Breaking Dawn shattered my lowest expectations I am stunned at the depths to which this once revered author has plunged From this point on I will refer to Breaking Dawn as BD aka “Bitter Disappointment” or if you prefer “Boring Depravity” “Bloody Drama” “Brain Drain” or my husband’s personal favorite “Bloody Diapers”Where do I begin? How about with my least favorite character Bella? She began the series with a lot of promise Sure some people said that she wasn’t well defined in the first book but I never had a problem with her Throughout New Moon and Eclipse her character starts to decline In BD Bella becomes intolerable This girl is unbelievably selfish She begins the book whining about the beautiful expensive car Edward bought her She whines about the wedding preparations the dress the ring Poor thing has to gasp marry the man of her dreams The injustice She is far concerned about nameless faceless people mocking her for getting married young than she is about the happiness of the man she claims to love than life itself And her treatment of Jacob Where to begin? This is a good kid had the misfortune to fall in love with her and though I had issues with his manipulation of her emotions at the end of Eclipse still he’s a teenage guy and you have to cut him some slack But come on Bella Once she realizes she loves him but that she loves Edward she chooses Edward Fine So let the poor guy go Let him move on with his life But no she has to have her cake and eat it too She hurts both Edward the one she has chosen and Jacob the one she has rejected by refusing to cut ties with him She claims to hate herself for hurting him says at one point that it’s “criminal” to injure him as much as she does but will she love him enough to let him let go and move on? Nope She wouldn’t “feel whole” without him so she continues to cling to him Even after she’s married The culmination of this extreme selfish lack of consideration for anyone’s feelings but her own is when she slips and refers to the unborn baby as “EJ” Did she even think to consider whether Edward would be happy about having his child named after his rival? No she just did what she darn well wanted to do and gave no thought to what Edward would want Bella has become a tyrant What Queen Bella wants Queen Bella must haveNow a little bit about Edward He was what made Twilight so magical He was mysterious romantic beautiful all the many things that the hero of a good book should be Edward stole the hearts of most of the female readers of this series Yet by the time you finish BD you find yourself either feeling terribly sorry for him because he chose such a lame heroine or just contemptuous of him for becoming a doormat a slave to Bella’s whims I thought I’d scream if I had to hear him say “If it makes her happy I’ll do it even if it’s not what’s best for her” one time In BD the author sends the message through Edward that love and blind devotion are the same thing They aren’t Truly loving someone isn’t giving them free reign to stomp all over you and everything in their path just because they think it will make them happy Real love encompasses the occasional appropriate guidance of the loved one away from self destructive desires toward a better way But here we are taught that if you love someone you let them have what they want all the time without exceptionAs for the story development my greatest frustration is that the author created a very intricate world complete with detailed descriptions of what could and could not happen in it Then she decided not to play by these rules Yes I am referring to the sudden and inexplicable ability of a vampire to father a child This felt very contrived and unbelievable and introduced such a bizarre nightmarish chain of events that I could hardly believe I was reading the story that began as Twilight This baby feeds on the blood of its mother and slowly sucks her life away? Bella has to drink human blood while she’s still human to save her life and the life of her child? And she LIKES IT? This is the same human Bella that turned green and almost passed out while doing blood typing in Biology class right? Okay I could see that her aversion to blood was going to go away after becoming a vampire But while she was still human? Really? I felt sick the whole time I read about her drinking gallons of blood a day to sustain the child Bleh I still don’t get the whole scene where Edward asks Jacob to offer to make babies with Bella What?? Again is this the author’s attempt at showing us the extent of true love? It was twisted and disturbingAnd the delivery of the babythat was just plain disgusting Bella vomiting gallons of blood her bones snapping right and left blood vessels popping in her eyes Edward biting into her womb to get the baby out and the tender moment when mommy sees baby for the first time is marred by said baby taking a bite out of her mommy Ick And I’ll just join the legions of people who are saying “RENESMEE??” You’ve got to be kidding This from the author who tastefully chose names like Edward Bella Carlisle Alicewhy didn’t she just name her “Brangelina” or “TomKat”? Or “Bedward?” I will also join the protests against Jacob imprinting on Bella and Edward’s daughter I could see when the concept of imprinting was introduced that it would be the author’s way of making a happy ending for Jacob at the end of the story and that was fine I like a happy ending and of course I wanted to see Jacob happy But are we so inflexible that we can’t be happy with Jacob imprinting on a nice new girl to the story? No Bella must have her way She can’t be happy without Jacob as a part of her life And we’re supposed to feel happy and satisfied that she gets her way in the form of Jacob as her son in law? How is that a happy ending?At the top of my list of grievances is the destruction of the message that was communicated so clearly in the first three books Once Bella falls in love with Edward she is confronted with some very difficult choices If she wants to be with Edward she must choose to leave human life behind her and become a vampire The value of Eclipse was that it forced Bella to look long and hard at what she was choosing if she decided to become a vampire She would have to cut ties with her human lifeher mother father and everyone human that mattered to her She could never have children of her own She would have to deal with the bloodlust of being a newborn vampire She would spend a significant amount of time developing the self control and restraint that the rest of the Cullens had achieved One of the most compelling elements of the first three books is Edward’s angst his agonizing about the state of his soul as a vampire He grieves what he sees as the loss of his soul This is at the heart of his great reluctance to change Bella the reason for his disappearance in New Moon All the vampires who have chosen not to feed on humans hate what they have become They are conflicted about who they are None of them who remember life as a human can say with conviction that they wouldn’t go back if they could Bella has to confront all of this and choose to sacrifice the value of her humanity for the love she feels for Edward All of this is well and good and presents a very thought provoking storyline Then in BD every one of these issues is neatly sidestepped in order to create an obstacle free path to a happily ever after ending for Queen Bella First of all from the moment she opens her eyes as a newborn vampire everything is better The world shimmers She experiences everything so much intensely things are beautiful colorful wonderful What’s not to love about being a vampire? Within minutes she is exhibiting the self control that everyone else took decades to achieve And how about the whole I have to have sex before I become a vampire because all my human emotions will be gone for awhile? Nope Not only does she still experience all the emotions and passions she had as a human but they are intensified By the time we’re finished reading about Bella’s new life as a vampire we have to wonder why anyone wouldn’t want to be a vampire All the build up for Bella to grow and mature through sacrifice and self denial wiped away So much better for her not to have to suffer through that stuff right? And she manages to get immortality and a baby to boot We have to wonder if everyone who claimed that becoming a vampire was a serious heavy choice was just delusional The nobility of the message is sacrificed in order to create a neat happy ending for everyoneI haven’t seen much if any speculation on what the cover of the book is trying to communicate to the reader so here’s my take The big white queen is you guessed it Queen Bella the white vampire The red pawn is you or I the blood red reader about to be sucked dry in the wake of the Queen’s destruction BewareI wish Stephenie Meyer had ended with Twilight or at least an extended version of New Moon I think I’ll be hauling my copies of the last three to the local library as a donation and trying to just enjoy Twilight for what it was before the rest of this mess came into play
