I loved it.......loved it loved it loved,.....

can we discus this yet????

ok Spoiler warning





I can't believe how sad the whole story was... reading about her falling in love when you know she's going to die...

and Carlisle rocks even in this story, how he stops his attack on her....how he offers her a chance....ooh man it made me cry....
and when she realised Diego was dead......oooh man...that was the worst....
I can't believe SM killed them both.... in the end it was probably more fair to have them both dead because if one survives it would be so sad...
and Riley...he makes me even more angry.......
These violent delights, have violent endings...Like fire and gunpowder, they consume what they kiss

I got up really early to get it, there were hardly any left! Gah, got it though. Never let it ou my side *thew*

Anyway, my thoughts. SPOLIER WARNING.

I cannot believe that Stephenie made me care for Bree and Diego that much, even though I knew what was going to happen in the end. For Bree to find someone that could relate to herself, and fall in love- AND I LOVED THE BIT WHERE THEY DISCOVERED THEY SPARKLED- and work it all out together. To find out that Diego had been dead for ages was heartbreaking, and made me cry. I wondered why Bree gave up- she was a good person, it was such a shame. Carlisle, offering her the chance that no one would ever give her in reality. Its reall a shame that she had to die.

The Volturi, gah, they are badder then i thought- how dare they just not really care if they won against the Cullens. And Riley was much more bad tempered then I imagined.

I want to see Fred in the future, his gift was interesting, and as she told Edward, I think that one day they will find him.
Or maybe Fred was in the Volturi crowd at the BD fight and no one saw :D

Best Novella ever. I loved it, thanks Stephenie.

I thought that it was ok, I did enjoy the read but thought that it was lacking in some places. Does make you think about a few people differently than I did before!

I know what you mean..... for my feelings she could have written a 500 pages book, there was lots to tell aboutthe new born army

I think maybe it's time to lock this thread, and move our discussions of the actual book to the new threads in this forum. Unless anyone has a reason they want it left open? (If so pm me!)
