Saga Complete

Breaking Dawn, the final book in the Twilight Saga, was released on August 2nd, and I bought my copy shortly thereafter. I've talked to some fans who were less thrilled with it than I am and though I understand some of their feelings, I also have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I won't go into detail for those of you who have yet to read it and I know there are many of you out there based on the number of you who have been by asking for the first book, as well as those that I have seen walking around with their own copies. However, if you care to comment in detail, please begin with "spoiler alert" so that those who haven't yet read all the books are forewarned.

Yes, the library does have a complete set of the Twilight books although they are not all currently on the shelves. Last spring the library's copy of Twilight was stolen so the set was incomplete. I bought a new copy of Twilight this weekend and hadn't even finished processing it when someone came by and asked if it was available. I quickly slapped a barcode on it and sent it on its way. It's great to see kids so excited about a book series again. It's not to the level of Harry Potter but it's the closest thing I've seen in a while.

For those who haven't heard much about the books and want to know more, visit Stephanie Meyer's website at http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/twilightseries.html. The movie is scheduled for release in November and I always recommend reading the book first, so check it out.

For those of you who have read Breaking Dawn, what did you think? Were you satisfied with the ending? Without giving anything away, I have to say, I never saw the resolution with Jacob coming the way it did, but it works for me. It all works for me. What do you think?

I read the entire saga after recommendations from both my 35 yr old best friend and my daughter’s karate teacher, Rebecca Ohlson. If the book was enjoyable by two generations that were 15 years apart then I though I would give it a shot. I loved all of the books and read threw them in one week over the summer. I recommend them to anyone who wants and enjoyable read. I, however, have no intentions of seeing the movie. My experiences with books turned to movies have not met my expectations and I would hate to see Ms. Meyers work ruined for me. The pictures of the young cast of the movie do not meet the ideas of true beauty and glamour I received form the descriptive text.
