Summer Book Reviews
“Breaking Dawn” Reviewed by Carissa Marston
The fourth and final book, “Breaking Dawn,” follows the young Bella Swan into married life, which proves to be very difficult when her husband is a vampire.
Getting married right out of high school never crossed the mind of Bella Swan until she moves to constantly dreary Forks, Washington and meets the love of her life and vampire Edward Cullen.
Then, her eye is set on convincing Edward to turning her into an immortal just like him, complete with sparkling skin, ravishing beauty, and a thirst for blood. Edward, however, has a demand of his own-for Bella to be his bride.
After the nearly perfect ceremony, the newlyweds set off for their honeymoon. The calm waters of their destination, however, are no predecessor of the turmoil that follows the first days of the couple's bliss.
The concluding novel in Stephenie Meyer's “Twilight” series, in my opinion, ties up every loose end its prequel, “Eclipse,” left hanging.
As it involves more adult situations than the previous three novels and some advanced vocabulary, I would recommend “Breaking Dawn” to readers aged fifteen and older.
