Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

This drivel was a defining moment in our young adult literary culture? Have we forgotten from whence we came? Apparently.

How to put this nicely? This book sucked sh!t through a paper straw. I don't even know where to begin. I guess I can start with the basics. It was poorly written. It was almost as if this book had been written by committee. It was so far fetched it left me rolling my eyes and thinking to myself, "This is why people can't take this genre of book seriously!" Even when I repeatedly reminded myself this was only mind candy, I still couldn't find anything within the book to recommend it. The characters were flat with no real development. The plot showed she was obviously reaching for straws. And the whole thing with Jacob and the baby just made me want to puke. That was just SICK! I forced myself to finish the book, but it was a total waste of my very valuable time. Do yourself a favor and go read something else -- ANYTHING else...even if it's the phone book.
