It didn’t take me long to finish this one. I did not love it. I did not hate it. I will first say what I didn’t like. The plot line is to drawn out for what you see is obvious and coming. So honestly it makes it a little weak. You can see everything coming as it comes, and go “Oh right so that what its going to be” I don’t like when I can see that in a book. The religious undertones are pushed a bit hard in this one as well. In my opinion.
However, that being said. I did the action. I did like that we got to meet some new characters and see some interesting twists. While I knew the character who leaves wouldn’t ditch her family, I was surprised when she came back how it all wrapped up. But that was the only surprise in the book. The rest was rather predictable.
I also personally wouldn’t let the intended YA audience read this one. Its a bit to…bloody, and filled with innuendo. While that was enjoyable to me as an adult. I would not let a kid read it.Over all, While I enjoyed the Saga as a whole. and am ..obviously a fan of Twilight. Breaking Dawn is my least favorite of the set. But still not a bad..book.
There is a lot of name dropping of big name celebrities, and that makes the book even more fun.Kind of like reading a Tabloid magazine, you know its not true but you just cant help yourself. We follow a fun cast of characters around Lottie that you love, hate, and love again. So over all if your looking for a fast, and amusing read that gives you a chuckle. With plenty of people mooning, and flashing in drunken stupors, give this one a shot.
And here the challenge begins now. Its Jan. And here’s my book schedule for the month. Maybe I will sneak an extra in. Who knows! I am looking forward to tackling this list. frothing at the mouth really…hehe
