I finally succumbed to reading the Twilight Saga back in December, right when I started this blog. I enjoyed reading them, even though the writing was bad and there were SO. MANY. THINGS. WRONG. WITH. THE. CHARACTERS. It was actually part of the fun, I think, to yell out random quotes to my roommate as I read the books in bed.
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?
A few weeks later, my youngest sister was coming to visit, so I asked her if I could borrow her copies of the books. She brought along Twilight, as well as the movie, telling me that if I finished the first one, I could borrow the remainder.
