Book Review – Breaking Dawn – Twilight Saga Book 4

Breaking Dawn is the fourth novel in the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. It is the last novel of the Twilight saga to be told from Bella Swan’s perspective. The first 3 novels are:- Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse.

Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen and in another by her profound connection to Jacob Black, Bella Swan has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss & strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences.

The first 3 books of the Twilight Saga show Bella as the weakest link, a breakable human. In Breaking Dawn; Bella’s transformation into a vampire is so extraordinary that she emerges as the strongest of them all; so strong as to be able to protect her family from the highest authority in the vampire clan: The Volturi. It is almost as if she was born to do this. She acquires tremendous self control over her thirst & is able to shield her mind, making it impenetrable.

Many readers commented that Stephenie Meyer tried to keep a happy ending giving everybody what they wanted. I feel it’s an author’s right to write what she wants, what she wants her story to be, what her characters should feel. It’s not that all readers would agree or believe what she believes in. I felt contended to way the series ended, just like J.K Rowling’s: Harry Potter Series.

I am not going to divulge much into the story, but just a glimpse that it is divided into 3 parts; the first part is Bella’s narration of her wedding and honeymoon. The second part is from Jacob’s perspective about Bella’s pregnancy and the split of his pack. The third part is from Bella’s perspective about her new found vampire life, her motherhood, and their fight against the Volturi when they come to kill them.

Overall the book(Breaking Dawn []) is very good read and could not have been better concluded.
