Random, side chaste note: I absolutely loved how awkward the walk-into-the-cabin-on-Isle-Esme scene was. It was so awkward, neither one knowing what to say as they stared at the bed, the air being warm, and Edward all nervous and awkward "I thought it' be easier..." and Bella all awkward and like "...er... yeah..." and then *awkward stares* I was giggling the while time. Fabulous, and it seemed very true to character.

Too perfect. My love for Twilight - the whole series - was that Stephenie was able to make this fantastic, surreal, mythical story seem real. Ironically, the realistic quality of it disappeared with the perfect, happy ending. Not the vampire wars, or the halfbreeds, but the too-perfect ending.
I love Jacob, I really do, and I'm happy he's happy. But I think I would've been happier if he'd just developed a non-imprinting relationship with Leah, and still angsted for Bella, 'His Never'. It would've hurt, but it would've seemed more real. But maybe that's just me.
