Review – Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Please allow me to repeat myself:
“I want to know the answers to questions about ancient legends and mythical monsters, impossible fairytales and absolute truths, magic and ghost stories.
I cannot wait for Bella to help me figure those out.“
And most fantastically did Breaking Dawn deliver exactly all of that…!!
Did we find answers to questions about:
Ancient Legends ? CHECK
Mythical Monsters ? CHECK
Impossible Fairytales ? CHECK
Absolute Truths ? CHECK
Magic ? CHECK
Ghost Stories ? CHECK
Well, I was so satisfied with all those answers. But also, in that review, I wondered:
With love this strong, how do you live with difficult choices? What kinds of love are the most sustaining? Can you really go home again?
Breaking Dawn helped me realize those answers as well. You sometimes get lucky with difficult choices if you are determined to make those multiples of those choices work. Sustaining love comes in so many different forms and yes… you can go (or stay at) home again.
And finally, after reading New Moon, I had noted that I loved the contrasts of hot versus cold, dark versus light, and puberty versus maturity. How abundantly all those contrasts were continued in Breaking Dawn!
Thank you Stephenie Meyer for the most happily completed book series that I have ever read. After Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse you left me desperately wanting more. I spent so much time trying to figure out what might happen next and I was so seriously wrong with my predictions.
But with the conclusion of Breaking Dawn you truly happily-ever-aftered Bella, Edward and Jacob for me and that, my dear author, left me totally satisfied and so very very happy.
