I don't want to say anything to ruin anything for you.

Just keep reading...

I can't wait to hear what you think when it's all over.

I was totally pissed at that point in the book as well and thought she had totally ruined it. In the interest of not ruining it, keep reading. It gets better. I'm interested to hear your thoughts when you're all done.

Duh, they are MORMON vampires! God wants them to procreate!

Also: was I the only one grossed out that once Bella gets knocked up she eats like dozens of eggs? Why does that seem so disgusting to me?

AHAHAHAHAHA *wipes away tear*
Finish the book, then post about it. Things are going to get very interesting before the end of the Jacob bit, and trust Stephenie to write the right thing, even though it might make some people mad in the beginning.

In my opinion it is the best of the whole series.

Also re: Bella and Edward not taking condoms along, from what I understand of the book and the implied lore that Bella knew, it seemed that vampired and humans were biologically incompatible so the risk of pregnancy was rather low. But it does seem against Bella's nature as the 'adult'/child to not be on the pill or something.

I will be very interested to see your final review. I haven't read these (as you know) but I have read all the spoilers. Bad heidi, bad bad bad.


I'm not reading any posts- b/c even though i've never even heard of these books and I read ABOUT a book a year- i still operate under the idea that i MIGHT actually read one of these books and I definatly don't want to know anything thant happens! so now i'm just stuck being teased that there are posts to be read- but not by me- b/c you know..there is a CHANCE that one of these books might be the lucky winner of 2008! I know- its pathetic how little i read. But considereing i'm about to get on about 15 cross-atlantic flights in the next 4-5 months, i should have some time to read :)

Well... I really, really didn't like Breaking Dawn. I don't want to spoil anything for you in case you haven't finished it, but I'm working on my review and will probably have it posted tomorrow. There's just too much to say in the comments here--right now all of my thoughts take up four pages single spaced, lol!

I finally got around to reading it this weekend, so now I can read your posts!

The first half of Breaking Dawn pissed me off like crazy!!! Thank goodness I had my Jacob to help me through it.

I really struggled with the first half of the book, too. I was annoyed with the pregnancy -- it seemed so, I don't know, predictable. And annoying. But it did get better, thank goodness.

Also, I was frustrated when I got to Jacob's part. I don't like Jacob that much, and I really didn't care to read a couple hundred pages from his point of view. Luckily, though, it was better than I expected it to be, and I ended up liking him much better by the end of it. Okay, Jacob, well done. I still love Edward more, though.

I thought the same thing about Jacob and Leah. I have to say that particular part of the ending completely surprised me. In a good way.

Oh, and also, was I the only one who thought all the implied sex was a little awkward for a teen book? Don't get me wrong, as an adult who has a major crush on Edward, I was totally okay with it, but I also had to wonder what I would think if I knew a teenage daughter of mine was reading it.
