1.0 out of 5 stars Horrid - horrid writing - horrid story, August 24, 2008
This review is from: Breaking Dawn (The Twilight Saga, Book 4) (Hardcover)
SPOILERS HEREIN!!!
First let me say that I set aside my sociopolitical objections to the limited goals Meyer set up for girls in the first three books, and I was able to enjoy them quite a bit. But here, Meyer broke all the rules of story construction, and the results are incredibly disappointing. Evidently Stephanie Meyer didn't like the restrictions she had imposed on herself. She didn't like the mythology she had created for vamps, because she certainly didn't stick to them when they boxed her in in BD. She didnt like Bella's human limitations, because those all went out the window when she needed to be flawless. She didn't like the sacrifices Bella would have to make to live as a vampire, because those flew to the four winds when they became inconvenient. She had her family, her memory, her heart, her best friend, her self-control, and a daughter. Hmm. Weren't the first three books about how EVERY ONE of those things would be lost to her if she became a vampire? Doing my best to forget the ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC role model Bella provided before, the girl in this book is likely the most damaging character to which young girls have been exposed since, well, ever. Not only does Meyer seem to encourage girls to a)worship a guy b)marry and [presumably] give up EVERYTHING for that guy (though MEyer's final book made that handily unnecessary) and c) become a teenage mother, but now I am convinced she is encouraging young girls to wish they could actually become the undead. Oddly, I am more upset about the breaking of all the rules of writing and construction than the terrible pre-victorian life she suggests for Bella. YOU created the stinking world, MEYER! Shame on you for not living within the restrictions of your own creation. Where was your freaking editor? He/She should be tarred and feathered alongside you.
