since it's taking me for-ev-er to re-read epl, i thought i'd go ahead & do my review of breaking dawn since the movie just came out on friday.
i feel like it took me forever to read this book. i enjoyed it, but it was really long, really, really long. here's the rundown: bella finally marries edward, they have sex, bella gets pregnant w\ a half-vampire. vampire babies can't exist, the volturi comes to kill the vampire baby, there's a huge fight. the end. i enjoyed the book- long but solid. good way to end it- you can't go on and do these forever.
dave & i saw breaking dawn part 1 at the midnight showing friday morning. i know there are so many people who hate the books, movies, etc. i look at it like this: there are books and movies you take seriously, and the rest are just for fun. this is my just for fun. i can read the book and feel like i'm on a little break for a couple hours a day. i can watch the movie, enjoy it whilst laughing at the bad acting & silly dialogue. do i enjoy the movies? yes. are they oscar-worthy? never.
i really liked the movie. dave hated it- that's to be expected. it set things up perfectly for part 2 without leaving a cliffhanger that leaves you dying for the next year. edward is a total hottie & bella's wedding dress is gorgeous. this movie was basically a set-up for the final movie- and that's where the real stuff will happen.
did you see breaking dawn?
book 3/5. movie 3/5.
