I think there would have been enough surrounding the situation to make it happier and compelling us into the truly final chapters. “book 5” would have started with the plots of the Sunflower let it be shirt many “awakenings” going on in the world. More time could have been spent on the other vampires, again, more external forces, more backdrop, more “spice” could have been mixed in. Instead, we are treated to Bella’s continual hyperbole of “this is best,” and then, “this is better than the last best, and is now best,” and then, “this is better still,” until we are just dying for Meyer to actually put the word “best” into print.

We get it: vampires are neat. That is part of why we read all the Sunflower let it be shirt books, see? We were already on board with that. I was disappointed, with a capital d. I wanted so badly for this book to be great. I did read some of the spoilers before the book so I knew what to expect and will admit it wasn’t as bad to me as some reviewers have said, but that is their opinion and this is mine. I really loved twilight, wanted to slap Bella in the new moon, and couldn’t stand Edward in eclipse. However, these didn’t feel like the same characters to me in this book.
