Twilight, Book 4
Twilight tempted the imagination . . . New Moon made readers thirsty for more . . . Eclipse turned the saga into a worldwide phenomenon . . . And now - the book that everyone has been waiting for . . . Breaking Dawn.
In the much anticipated fourth book in Stephenie Meyer's love story, questions will be answered and the fate of Bella and Edward will be revealed.
It ought to seem redundant to dismiss the fourth and final Twilight novel as escapist fantasy-but how else could anyone look at a romance about an ordinary, even clumsy teenager torn between a vampire and a werewolf, both of whom are willing to sacrifice their happiness for hers? Flaws and all, however, Meyer's first three novels touched on something powerful in their weird refraction of our culture's paradoxical messages about sex and sexuality. The conclusion is much thinner, despite its interminable length. Everygirl Bella achieves her wishes quickly (marriage and sex, in that order, are two, and becoming an immortal is another), and once she becomes a vampire it's almost impossible to identify with her. But that's not the main problem. Essentially, everyone gets everything they want, even if their desires necessitate an about-face in characterization or the messy introduction of some back story. Nobody has to renounce anything or suffer more than temporarily-in other words, grandeur is out. This isn't about happy endings; it's about gratification. A sign of the times? Ages 12-up.
Great book thrilling and love story recomend for teenagers and younge adults my favourite book yet!!!
To be honest I thought that this book would only be interesting when renesmee was born from what I have heard but it was a great read all the way through. I don't particularly like the movies but the book is brilliant. Would recommend it for the early teens age group as I am one.
An excellent concluding volume
The last volume in the Twilight Saga is excellent! The leisurely approach allows for sensitive character exploration. Seeing things from different points of view effectively expands our understanding of the various characters.
Clever plotting by Meyer ensures enjoyable twists and turns throughout. Particularly good is the grand finale. This is a very enjoyable and pleasant read.
