twilight - edward cullen's child

Day 18 - A book that disappointed you

Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

I know I'm not alone in this one. This was the first Twilight book that I actually waited for because when I got into the books, the first three were already released. So I was really excited to see what would happen. What happens? Bella and Edward get married, Bella gets pregnant, Bella essentially dies in childbirth, Bella is turned into a vampire, and they all live happily ever after. That's the REALLY short synopsis. What disappointed me? Probably the most irritating thing of all was that we got no hot sex scene from the writing, however we got the excruciatingly violent bloody childbirth kill scene. No matter what the author says, she really can't justify that. It's like people with movies - you can see a ton of violence, but God forbid anyone see any nudity or sex. Cuz that's worse.

This has to be one of the most anti-climactic books I have ever read. Everyone gets a happy ending and there is NO major showdown or anything with the Volturi. They just get talked to nicely and leave. WHAT???? And as much as I liked Renesmee (I did much more than others), I hate the fact that the book seems to imply that as a woman you cannot be truly be happy without a child. Do you know how long it took me to realize that it was okay for me to feel the opposite way? I don't mind introducing kids into the picture, but the overabundance in which is was noted really got to me.
