I have been putting off writing this review because we I don't have anything nice to say at all about "Breaking Dawn". In fact, I can sum up the book in three little words.
Waste of Time
In fact, this is the worse book in the series. I didn't even finish they whole thing but I am counting it as a book completed. Why? because I read almost 500 pages (487 pages to be honest) and I deserve a huge pat of the back for making it that far.

Meyer's has the ability to suck the life out of a already mediocre series of books and make it one of the most un-enjoyable things I have ever read. I would rather try to read "Ethan Frome" again. At least, I know the writing is good.

The only reason I was looking forward to reading this book was because I like Jacob Black. But Meyer's slaughter his character. He ends up being an emotionally need, lame male version of Bella. Bella still sucks. And Edward is just Edward.

I don't know why the book was 700+ pages but the more and more I read the worse it got. It almost seemed like she ran out of ideas and just pulled stuff out of a hat. It would have been better if she had just stopped. The writing, plot and scenarios that she came up with were _______ (can't think of a bad enough word).

What a horrible book to end the series.

I am just going to stop here and remind myself that I will never have to read another book by her again. No matter how much it is hyped, I have the option to ignore it. I will clap that I made it to the fourth book and almost completed.

Bye, Bye: Stephenie Meyer's and your lame vampires, humans, werewolves, and hybrids.

Pros: It's the last book of the series and over. Hopefully forever.
Cons: Everything: Too Long, Characters, plot, writing, etc.

Overall Recommendation:
Don't waste your time and brain cells.

Other Reviews:
I can't in good conscience send people to other reviews of this book because if they are positive and someone decides to read the book base on the positive review. I will feel guilty of the torture they are going to receive by trying to read this "book".

If you have a review of this book or any other book reviewed on my site. Post a link to that review in the comment section so, I can link back to you.


  1. I didn't like this either, but your feelings are much stronger than mine!

  2. LOL.... I don't think that I have ever disliked a book more than I disliked this one.

  3. You know, I think part of my problem with Breaking Dawn is that it is a fine book as a standalone but it sucks as the completion of the series.
