This series is an absolute horrible piece of fiction. Aside from the fact that Meyer completely butchers vampire lore, Bella is the most vapid, anti-feminist character that I have ever had the misfortune to read. The entire series involves Bella worshiping Edward calling him everything from perfect to glorious to God-like, and wondering why he is in love with her when it's so clear that she's a stupid, fragile, clutzy human who doesn't deserve him. Bella is, in a word, too stupid to live. I am seriously dismayed that so many young women adore this series when it teaches them that the only way to validate yourself is through being loved by a superior man. Aside from the troubling anti-feminist message Meyer also lacks the basic artistic skills that it takes to write a good and intriguing book. Her characterization is two-dimensional at best and her ability to plot and build a climax is even worse. The entire series centers around the relationship between these two characters, Bella and Edward, who magically fall in love at first sight with no explanation other than that Edward is hot and Bella smells tasty to Edward.

Bottom line- this book is pure juvenile romantic fantasy with less substance than a Harlequin romance and even worse writing.

It seems that with "Breaking Dawn" either you loved it or hated it. Although I wouldn't go quite so far as to say that I hated it, I really didn't enjoy it. In fact, I found it depressing. Meyer seemed to gone the way Patricia Cornwell did with her Kay Scarpetta series: beloved characters that had been so richly portrayed in the past books all of a sudden seem dull and almost unrecognizable, storylines and characters are thrown in willy-nilly and then removed just as quickly, and (the worst sin) the main character starts to get under your skin so much that you almost stop caring about her. On it's own this book might have been okay but it's so oddly out of sorts with the rest of the series that it just bothered me. I'm sorry to say that I cannot recommend it.

As a huge fan of the first three in the series, this one is a disappointment. The characters seem out of sync with those in the first three books, some of the plot points are downright laughable and everything is far too neat and tidy.

This book, the last and the worst in the series, is pure fan fiction. It was written like something on a fan fiction website, I couldn't believe what I was reading. I finished it for the main reason that I HAVE to finish every book. Stephanie Meyers, you wrote a good first book and then they got progressively worse and ended with this mess, ick.
