It didn't seem like someones life, like something that wasn't written by an author but was actually written by the character, or told anyway (we all know how you feel when you particuarly love a book) it seemed like it was written by Stephenie. Not by Bella, it seemed like it was an author's decisive story. (That may not make sense to you XD) It didn't flow, it didn't seem natural, it seemed exactly like Stephenie had thought it up all along to give all her characters the resolution that she thought we all wanted. For them to be happy. When that isn't real life, not by a long shot. Real life is full of misery, and heart-break and pain, not la-di-da sunshine and rainbows, 'my best friend whom I love imprinted on my newly born daughter, and I'm cool with it!' I don't believe that anyone in their right mind would forgive someone for falling for their child, when they've been involved with each other previously. I don't think anyone could bear it, irreguardless of the circumstances because even if you've found your perfect match, it would still hurt to see that happening. It basically just spoilt it all for me. The fact that there wasn't even an ounce of reality in it.
Wow, you took the words right from my mouth! I do not like BD.. I adore the first three books, but BD, as you said, seemed unrealistic. Now I know that sounds funny considering the books are full of mythological creatures and such.. But they are believable by the way things happen and the characters react. BD just was so out there! And yeah, everyone got a happy ending, but in the real world, that doesn't happen.. And honestly, Bella gets pregnant?! Come on, Edward is dead! How can he create life?? And Bella just immediately has self control as a vampire? And she soo quickly is able to use her power at such a strong capacity? Plus, Jacob impriting on Renesmee? Cop out! Plus an intense fight scene at end would have been nice.. I know I know.. The book was like the Merchant of Venice..
I know exactly what you mean! It was so untouchable, you couldn't relate to it. I couldn't relate to it full stop, but I know Bella is supposed to be designed as someone you can relate to, well when she turned into a vamp she lost anything that made her different. I didn't like that she seemed to fit the mold of a vampire so easily, and just suddenly become this thing that wasn't thirsty for human blood like she should have been, I felt bad for Jasper because it wasn't fair that she should get off so easy while he was still internally struggling.
And Edward is supposed to be dead, he shouldn't be able to contain life inside of him . . . and er . . . y'know is classified as life. It's an organism, so how could someone who was supposed to be dead still have a living organism inside of them?
