I’m sure you all know what Breaking Dawn is (if not, what rock have you been living under?), so I’ll skip that. The midnight release party was a surprising non-event considering the fan base these books have, but many of the people there were incredibly into it all, dressing up for a book in which people dress normally (hmm…), and there were tasty special drinks at the Books-a-Million coffee shop.
Anyway, the book itself. Well, this was exactly what I expected the end of the Twilight Saga to be, in some ways. It was a wonderful brain-candy type of book–something I couldn’t put down, something I loved the experience of reading, but, well, nothing about it is dazzlingly brilliant. It’s something I absolutely loved reading, but now that I’ve finished I don’t feel like I’ve gained anything. Stephenie Meyer’s writing is not too impressive, honestly. I love her characters, though, and when what I want is something that I will absolutely devour and something that won’t take anything out of me, that’s perfect.
I hope I explained that well enough. Anyway, this book what exactly what I expected and wanted out of the end (I think) of the Twilight Saga. I loved finding out the fates of my favorite characters. My thoughts on Bella’s fate are below and spoilerific.
Edward's soft voice came from behind me. I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, just like he had in the parking lot, and kissed me again.
This kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine—like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us.
As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob—knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?
Bella has been going out with her vampire boyfriend Edward for six blissfully happy months. The only thing that worries her is his steadfast refusal to even consider making her into a vampire like him. As the day of her eighteenth birthday rolls around she feels less than happy because she is now older than Edward, who will never age past seventeen.
To celebrate her birthday Edward takes Bella to a birthday party at his family home but when a stupid accident that leaves Bella covered in blood and nearly triggers a feeding frenzy in Jasper, Edward’s brother, the party falls somewhat flat.
Edward suddenly becomes more distant towards to Bella and finally he tells her that he and his family are leaving Forks, to never return, and he no longer wants to see her.
Edward is Bella’s whole world and his abandonment is a harsh blow. Her whole world falls apart and as she becomes withdrawn from the world she soon loses most of her friends becoming even more isolated and lonely.
ave read before, Twilight is so unique it is almost like it’s in its own genre. The book is marketed at Young Adult readers but it has the ability to cross age barriers and will satisfy both teenagers and adults alike.
The story is told in first person from the perspective of Bella, so the reader only ever know what she knows, making Edward and his family a mystery that is slowly unravelled through out the book. Even by the end of the book I was still thirsting for more of the Cullen family back story - hopefully their characters might be developed further in future books. Bella herself is a well written and realistic character, shy and lacking in confidence, her sarcastic inner voice narrates the story for the reader.
Twilight is simply and yet beautifully written. The descriptions of Forks leave you feeling like you can almost smell the damp air and hear the rain falling on the roof.

En esta tercera parte del diario del mayor USA que "viajó" a la Palestina de Cristo, el lector, entre otras fascinantes sorpresas, encontrará la respuesta a una de las grandes incógnitas de la vida del Hijo del Hombre: su infancia. "Algo" que los evangelistas silenciaron, privándonos de una perspectiva más auténtica sobre la más grande figura de la Historia. Nadie, hasta hoy, había tenido la audacia suficiente para atreverse a narrar, paso a paso, cómo fueron esos primeros años de la encarnación humana del Hijo de Dios. Una vida tan inquietante, alegre, dolorosa e intensa como la de millones de seres humanos. ¿Podía imaginar, por ejemplo, que Jesús vivió más de dos años en Alejandría? ¿Sospechó alguna vez que Jesucristo era amante de la música y del dibujo? ¿Qué ocurrió realmente, a sus doce años, en el templo de Jerusalén? Saidan. Caballo de Troya 3, además, le ofrece una singular narración de las apariciones de Jesús en el lago Tiberíades, así como una desconcertante descripción de su "cuerpo glorioso". Como escribe J. J. Benítez en esta nueva y polémica obra, "si sus principios religiosos se hallan definitivamente cristalizados y no se siente con fuerza para evolucionar, por favor, no lea Saidan. Caballo de Troya 3".
