I got the book within the first 20...well, actually, i WAS number 20..which to me was a VERY good sign even before I read the book...JUNE 20!!!!
when I was reading it, I kept calling by best friend (who also pulled an all-nighter with me) and we stopped periodically just to digest the book. So when I got to the end of the First book, I was a little confused as to why SM decideded (or rather explained to us, as she has already mentioned that her characters decide for themselves
) to have Renesmee. When I realized that this was kind of essential to everyone's genetic make-up, I fully accepted Ren. (the loch ness monster does sound COOL! but i have a soft spot for "ren" my own nick name, if you will)
the second book was insightful on so many different levels, and so much fun to read Jake's perspective..the third book was just AMAZING!!!! this was what I was expecting (though I knew that this would have to happen in the end of the book) and i was so happy to find out about the "Secret" aka Alec...that was interesting to see his reactions in comparison to Jane....I actually never expected a battle with the Volturi...Carlisle is friends with the Volturi (was? no, i think he's still friends with the Trio, but is a little dissappointed) they respect the Volturi for keeping SOME form of order, becuase if there is no "government", there is no regard for what should or should not be done....i expected some sort of tactical method of getting Bella and the rest of the Cullens as a gaurd, but not an actual "war" that never crossed my mind. i was just hoping for a "VOLTURI SCENE" and i definately got one!
and how the Cullens TRULY live...wow!!!
in response to the negative response, I saw one comment on a random website where author Tamora Pierce commented on the negative reviews on Amazon. I really wished at that point that I had bought something off of Amazon just so that I could write a review to comment upon that..I personally felt that Breaking Dawn had concepts that most people wouldn't fully understand emotionally. For example, a mother's love and protectiveness for her child; i know my mom is like that, but because I'm a mom I can only sympathize with Bella - I can't empathize. But with Meyer's amazing style, I can understand more about her characters than in most other author's books.
this is just one extremely LONG reason why i truly enjoyed this book! i have more, but i think this is what I'm going to write for now
