This has truly been my favorite book of the twilight series. Despite all the naysayers I've stuck the series out and I'm glad I did. Bella and Edwards relationship was put to the test after having to deal with Bella's upcoming nerve wrecking and life threatening pregnancy. I was glad she pulled through with and turned into the person(the being ) she'd always wanted to be. I feel the whole family is complete now with the baby and Edward and Bella's family being together now. I really hope Stephenie Meyers makes the last book; I would really love to read it. Thank you if you read my comment through it really means something to me.

Breaking Dawn is a good book, like the rest of the series. It has a interesting plot, and is also very creative. I really love the ending, it's like just because a vampire fell in love with a human, they went through so many things. Then at the end, they were together finally. Forever.

OMG this is the best book I have ever read. Well, all the Twilight series are. by the way, that's a pretty long comment, uh, Ahlias 123.

I'm doing this book for my reading fair project (ok maybe that sounds a bit nerdy)

Anyways, it is very romantic, suspenseful, and heartbreaking. I'm rereading it, but I'm sure it'll surprise me with its many twists and turns as it did the first time. I'm actually really, really sad that I've now finished the Twilight saga. I wish there were, like, a dozen books. Maybe even an epilogue would be good.

It's a great book.

READ IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And by the way for all you "you're too young" and "it's not your age level," well, for your information, I happen to be ten years old!!!!!!

Believe me or not, it IS true. :)

The Twilight series have all of its audience captivated all along ever since the very first movie was released. It is a science fiction movie, so it will leave you with a lot of questions like; “Is that even possible?” I personally didn’t enjoy this part of the series as much because we did not see a lot of romance in this part, we mostly witnessed pain and torture. In the beginning everything looks great, the wedding of Bella Swan and Edward is unimaginable but it happens, they go away to Brazil for their honeymoon and enjoy their time somewhat shown in the movie. The next thing we find out is that Bella is pregnant, yes pregnant with a vampire baby, now since Edward is dead how does he produce the live sperm? Was the real question in my head? After that Bella undergoes great amount of pain and looks almost like she is about to die, while Jake is planning to get his pack together to attack Edward until Bella begs for his support on this. Apparently the baby grows very fast in her stomach which is not like a normal fetus that grows in nine months; it takes up all of her energy life and sucks her up basically to grow. There is a small part where the idea of abortion is pitched in but knowing Bella and her love for Edward we should already know her answer to that. What really disappointed me was the extreme detailing to her delivery, I mean it is supposed to be a pg13 movie but the detailing and the scenario didn’t make it easy for the pre-teens or teens to be able to watch it without getting disgusted. I wanted to see more, more their marriage, more to their happy moments, more to the intimate moment, not so much of drama. However I did come across people who absolutely loved it, now it is a preference, some people wouldn’t stop talking about how great the movie turned out to be, I personally like the actors work they all did great, this series wasn’t my part.

As wonderfully exciting as the rest of the series. Even exposed to some big spoilers there were a lot of surprise twists along the way. An alternate ending or promise of more to come might have been nice, but c'est la vie.

Breaking Dawn is divided into three separate parts. The first part details Bella's marriage and honeymoon with Edward, which they spend on a private island owned by Carlisle who bought it for Esme, called Isle Esme, off the coast of Brazil. Two weeks into their honeymoon, Bella realizes that she is pregnant with a half-vampire, half-human child and that her condition is progressing at an unnaturally accelerated rate. After contacting Carlisle, who confirms her pregnancy, she and Edward immediately return home to Forks, Washington. The fetus continues to develop with unnatural rapidity, and Edward, concerned for Bella's life and convinced that the fetus is going to kill her, urges her to have an abortion. However, Bella feels a connection with her unborn baby and refuses.

To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan, breaking dawn is a very intence book that makes you sit on the edge of your seat. breaking dawn is one of my favourite books out of the twilight saga.

As I read the Twilight saga, the two things that carried me were the romance and suspense. The romance (whether you're a member of Team Edward or Team Jacob) was palpable throughout. The works that inspired the first three books in the saga - Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, and Wuthering Heights - number among the great romantic stories of our time, and Meyer adapted them brilliantly to her story of first love in town of Forks, WA. In terms of suspense, big battles never seemed to be the author's choice. Tense moments were built more out of implication than body count. The final showdown with James in Twilight seemed to me the most graphic battle of the first three books. The scenes with Laurent and the Volturi in New Moon were suspenseful, but no blood was shed in either. Even in Eclipse, the confrontation with Victoria and her minions played out like the chorus describing an off-stage battle in a Greek tragedy (with a bit of head rolling tossed in for good measure). So, tense and dramatic, yes. But violent and filled with depictions of hand-to-hand combat.

Bella decides to go on with the wedding to Edward Cullen, and they go on a honeymoon, and later discover Bella is pregnant. She almost dies when trying to have the half vampire, half human kid and later find out that the Volturi want to kill their daughter(Renesmee), and prepare for a battle.

The series continues with the marriage between Bella and Edward. There are a lot of unexpected twists and shocking conclusions, the book told in three different parts. By Two different char.

Forever, shall we be together, forever shall we love.

The hopes, the joys, and the sadness of immortality, the experience and wisdom of them long, light years.
All our happiness in a single bite, a drop of blood on white snow.

The friendship that had sprung up between Edward and Seth was something that still boggled my mind. It was proof, though, that things didn’t have to be this way. That vampires and werewolves could get along just fine, thank you very much, if they were of a mind to.

Virtual indestructibility was just one of the many perks I was looking forward to. The best parts about being a Cullen were not expensive cars and impressive credit cards.

Ha ha. Because I was so fragilely human, so accident-prone, so much a victim to my own dangerous bad luck, apparently I needed a tank-resistant car to keep me safe. Hilarious. I was sure he and his brothers had enjoyed the joke quite a bit behind my back.
