The first experience I had with so-called “comic journalism” was with another of Sacco’s books called Palestine. It was enlightening and funny and easy-to-read, even when discussing a rather difficult subject, and so I hoped that I would find other pieces of work just as good.
I have to admit, I wasn’t ready for the sheer honesty with which Altman tells her story.
I had known even before I read the series that the last book, Breaking Dawn, had caused a whole lot of controversy among the Twilight fans, though I hadn’t really known why. Now that I’ve finished reading them, I decided to go looking to find out why people disliked it; here’s a really good summary of most of the major “problems” that some readers have with Meyer’s ending to the story.
Honestly? I rather liked it.
This installment seemed to hit both the best and worst points of the series for me.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I like other kinds of supernatural things, not just vampires. But, when I’m expecting a vampire story, why do I then have to read through almost 400 pages with very few mentions of vampires, not to mention having to learn a whole new set of supporting characters?
