Twilight's Breaking Dawn Can Bite Me!

Team Edward vs Team Jacob

It was never my intention to become a fan of the Twilight series. It happened when I least expected it.

I remember the moment I caved very vividly. My daughter Michelle was and still is a Twilight fan and a member of Team Jacob. I would watch her devour each page as she read each book and she would share bits and pieces of the Cullen saga with me. She was careful as to not give away too much vital information. Just enough to tease my curiosity. I half-listened because it was a teen love story about vampires and werewolves, I wasn't interested.

Come on, I have much better things to read to indulge my literary appetite. Michelle wouldn't back off. She was determined for me to become part of the pack. She continued to share tidbits of info and leer at me. I was getting a tad concerned with her obsession but I thought...this too shall pass. I also began to notice she was shaving her legs less often. Hmmm, possibly a new phase?

Michelle knew how much I enjoyed rainy days. One rainy Saturday she mentioned to me that "the Cullens enjoy the rain as much as you do." Enough already! I gave in and told her I would appease her and read a couple of chapters. It didn't take me long to fall for the series hook, line and sinker! After a few chapters I couldn't get enough of Edward, Jacob and Bella! I was addicted to every character and their intense roles. I contemplated becoming a vampire! I wondered what blood tasted like! I even considered biting someone just to find out! I wanted to be as powerful as a werewolf. I wanted my skin to glisten like the Cullen family. I wanted my stride to glide across the floor like Edward!

I love the sunshine, yet I wanted more and more dark, dreary days! I was an addict!!! I couldn't wait to finish book one to continue on to book two. I was in a trance most of the time. I had vampires and werewolves dancing around in my head. Twilight was a brilliant book and it had more than peaked my interest! I wanted and needed more as soon as possible!

I immediately continued on to New Moon. I won't divulge any of the storyline because there are actually people, who believe it or not still haven't read the books or seen the movies! I don't want to take anything away from their enjoyment. I will say that New Moon was beyond fascinating. Bella was a warm, loving daughter who treated her father like a king. They were a happy family. You could feel the caring, compassionate yet slight tension between Bella and Edward. The drama was continuous. Never ending. I was officially a member of Team Jacob!

Then came book three Eclipse. My daughter was thrilled that I was an addict. I'm kind of impatient and since she already knew what was going to happen next I would try to coax her into sharing some info with me. She refused. Ugh! I would try on the sly and ask about Jacob or Bella. Nothing. Just a grin and she would glide away! I swear I saw her glide and her skin was beginning to illuminate slight shimmery spots, but she informed me it was just my imagination. Yea right! I gave up asking her to indulge me in what was going to happen next. Come on, you seriously didn't believe I gave up, did you?!

It was now time for book four, Breaking Dawn. The story started out very slow, sort of like watching honey drip off a spoon except there was no sweetness to the plot. I kept on reading because I was certain this book had to be just as interesting and mind-blowing as the other three! How could it not be? I was on the edge of my seat with books 1-3 how could the storyline fizzle out now? Each day I would reluctantly pick up the book again and think this is the day that the storyline will pick up. There were intriguing aspects to the storyline yet it took forever and a day to finally get to them. I figured out what was bound to happen. There were no shockers for me. I completed the series.

Personally I relate Breaking Dawn to having a root canal. A long drawn out process that you have to do even though you don't want to. It was at this point that I no longer wanted to be a vampire or a werewolf. I handed the book four back to Michelle and said, Breaking Dawn can bite me! She smiled at me and that's when I noticed her fangs!!! I closed my eyes and looked again and realized it was my imagination! I needed to get this story out of my head pronto!!!

I was coerced into watching the Twilight movie by you guessed it....Michelle. I watched it and again the truth stands, the book is so much better then the movie. In the movie Bella was dull and lifeless. She was so much more energetic and vigorous in the book. Edward was much better looking and his smooth gliding stride was flawless while reading the story. Jacob was appealing in the book and in the movie. The werewolves and their stances were more amazing in the book. If you only watched the movies and didn't read the books you have missed out on a lot! One thing I learned from watching the Twilight movie and one half of the New Moon movie is that I was still a Team Jacob fan!

I watched the Harry Potter movies but didn't read the books. I'm sure HP fans will tell me that I missed out on so much due to not reading the books. As a matter of fact I have heard that from fans and I believe them!

Breaking Dawn book 4 shouldn't have been written. The entire book could have been a few more chapters added to book 3. A complete trilogy. When I heard that Breaking Dawn was going to be made into two movies all I thought was greed. The plan was to take the fans on a ride and gross as much money as possible. The plan was a success. Breaking Dawn Part 1 grossed $139 million in the U.S. This movie fell short of topping New Moon which grossed $142 million. I wonder if the fans appetites will be fulfilled at the end?

I've heard some reviews from moviegoers and I heard the same thing over and over .... slow start but it was OK! None of the fans I spoke with read the books. I devoted a chunk of my time into the Twilight series and I would have preferred to walk away a content fan and not telling Breaking Dawn to bite me! I will have Edward, Jacob and Bella from the books etched in my memory. Not the characters from the movies. I thank Michelle for being persistent and I highly suggest that she starts shaving again. Team Jacob!!

      I've never read any of the books- watched New Moon or whatever the second one is called in the Student Union for laughs. It was so bad it wasn't even funny.

      Personally I'm not into the book flavor of the moment- never read Harry Potter and I was in middle school when that hit and I wouldn't touch 50 shades with a ten foot pole. It's always interesting to see trends in books.

      Hi Jeannie, I did the opposite of you. I read the Twilight books and saw one movie which wasn't my cuppa tea. The books are so much better. For Harry Potter I watched all the movies and enjoyed them, but I don't have the patience for the books. Thanks for sharing your point of view!

      Hi Bella, I'm glad you loved it.

      Hi Emily! Haha! Thank you for sharing! Your boyfriend sounds like a diehard fan. Good for him!:)

      Hi M, I often wonder if I'm also a Team Jacob fan for the same reason. I then see a photo of Edward again and I remember why I'm Team Jacob. I'm just not a fan of Edward. Thank you!

      Oh my gosh, too funny! I'm laughing out loud :) Love your last sentence and the rain reference to you and the Cullens :-) I was late and joined the Twilight fan club way way later on, love the movies now...well., all except for the vampire birth scene in what the Breaking Dawn part 1? I wasn't impressed with that film but yet I'll still watch the newest one eventually. I love Harry Potter! Read the books way back as a child and got sick of it all, then rediscovered the books and am re-reading them and watching the movies :) This may be lame...(nerd alert) but my boyfriend got a real original Harry Potter wand for his birthday, lol, he is 25. hahaha!!

      I became an obsessed Twilight fan before the movies came out. I, too, understand your frustration with Breaking Dawn. I waited in line at midnight with teenage girls to buy that book the day it came out. I love that Bella and Edward get married, but everything else... yuck! It should have been a trilogy. I feel your pain.

      P.S. As a Harry Potter fan, I simply must encourage you to read all the books. The Twilight books actually made better movies than the Harry Potter books. With Harry Potter, it is all about the books! I wouldn't have understood half of what I saw in the HP movies without reading the books.

      Voted up and awesome! :-)

      Storytellers, I've met young and old alike who feel the same way about book 4. What a total disappointment. It could have been one more chapter to book 3. No movies for me unless they are free and on TV.

      Thank you for your thoughts on BD!

      Hi Sharon and Swet...It's all good. Thanks for your comments:))

    • Storytellersrus profile image

      Barbara 6 years ago from Stepping past clutter

      Sunshine, I thought Book 4 was disgusting!!! I got into the series because I wanted to share the experience with my daughter as well and liked Jacob best. But I thought the entire premise of Breaking Dawn was crude and as you so aptly put it, pure torture to suffer through. I feel so relieved to know others felt similar because of course none of my young friends did!!! Thanks so much. I will sleep well tonight, lol. Btw, I refuse to see the movies because of the last book!

      Linda Bilyeu 6 years ago from Orlando, FL

      Hey Springboard keep us posted if you read the books. Everyone I spoke with agreed about BD being drawn out but I'd like to hear your opinion also. Thanks for the comment!

    • Springboard profile image

      Springboard 6 years ago from Wisconsin

      Something about the romance of vampirism doesn't appeal to me. Then again I have not read the books. The movies seemed odd to me. I'm an old school horror fan and maybe that's my dilemma? Don't know. Twilight seems to stem from something Anne Rice started with her vampire series. Vampires have always had an air of romanticism about them. But Twilight seems to take that to a whole other level...

      Again, I haven't read the books. But they're in the house. The wife has read them and she liked them. Maybe I should give them a go? The first three of course. Why bother with Breaking Dawn?

    • gryphin423 profile image

      gryphin423 6 years ago from Florida

      Man, I agree with everything you've said. I hesitated to read them, but got addicted as well. And I also felt that book #4 was long and drawn out and that greed has a huge factor with the 2 movie finale, geez already! The books are far superior to the movies!

    • Sunshine625 profile image

      Linda Bilyeu 6 years ago from Orlando, FL

      Hi Ricky...I also kept it on the low but I'm out of the closet now! :)

      Hi Steve...Just once I'd like to say the movie is better than the book but it'll most likely never happen so now I either read the book or watch the movie OR I'll go in reverse and watch the movie first and then read the book. I also grew up with Dracula which was one of the reasons I hesitated reading the books, I didn't want the nightmares again! I agree about Steph's publicist, I'd like to hire her! hahaha! Have a great day! :)

    • Stevennix2001 profile image

      Steven Escareno 6 years ago

      A book being better than the movie version? Eh, that's not surprising. I must admit that it was interesting reading how you became a fan of this franchise, but I don't think it's for me though. Sorry. Maybe it's because the vampires that I grew up with while watching movies were all blood sucking monsters. Or it could be that when it comes to love stories in general, they really have to be damn near flawless to impress me because I'm kind of cynical about romance when it comes to real life and movies in general. Or maybe it's because I'm a guy, and this franchise was obviously tailored more towards girls. Sorry if that sounds sexist, as that's not my intention.

      However, I must admit that Stephenie Meyer's publicist must be very talented at what they do. After all, I don't think I've seen any other franchise market a love triangle quite as successfully as they have before. Anyway, thanks for the read. Cheers.

      Votes up Sunshine. My wife is the same way, Twilight crazy. She read the second book and she said it was better then the movie at that time and she said it was a little different. I was forced to watch the first time, but quietly enjoyed it. Now, I am an addict as well. I just usually keep it on the low.

      Linda Bilyeu 6 years ago from Orlando, FL

      Hi Nell, Bella is the movies is just UGH! Her character in the book is much better, you actually feel for her. The first movie Twilight was just a test the production company didn't expect it do as well as it did. With New Moon they put more effort into it, but it was just okay. OMG the last book....took forever!! Thanks for your comment:))

      Hi, I love your review! talk about throw yourself into the deep end! lol! I hate Twilight! I think its the most boring vampire film, never read the book!, that I have ever watched. Bella was such an appalling actress and the storyline of the first film was so slow I fell asleep! the second one was mildly interesting, but I cannot bare that girl! she is so wooden, if she stood still she would turn into a tree! I prefer the vampire diares on screen, and bookwise I love pc casts house of night, and of course Morganville by rachel caine, thanks for the laugh, I could just see you trying to plow through the last book!

I know you are not alone in being enthralled with the story. Thanks for the share. Great writing! 'Happy Thanksgiving!' : )

      Real ... I'd be scared of a large poster of Edward also, but not Jacob!:)

      Daniella ... you aren't the only one who's burnt out which is why this movie didn't gross as much as New Moon.

      Martie ... Keep us posted when you do read them! You most likely will enjoy them:)

      Sunshine, this was such an enjoyable read. I am now so inspired to read the books, although, really, I have outgrown my interest in vampires and werewolves. I could see, however, that they are in the books merely human souls.

      To end a series with, or to have one book in the series that is not as good as the one before, and even to publish a book that is not as good as the one(s) already published, is a professional writer's most awful fear.

      I was at times addicted to series like this, inter alia Desperate Housewives - and will certainly fall again - and why not? Why not fall hook, line and sinker for whatever gives us so much pleasure.

      I vote this hub sky-high and brilliant. Your enthusiasm was contagious. Now where shall I go look for the books ...... Oh, you've got the links in here...

I still haven't seen Breaking Dawn, but to be honest, I'm kind of burnt out on the series. I'll probably just wait till it comes out on video. Rather sad. Anyways, voted up and funnnnaaayyy!

      I read the books and saw the movies - except this last one. My oldest took the two youngest to see it the first night it was out. They all said it was the best one yet!

      I totally agree with you! I am a HUGE Team Jacob fan for life. And I loved all the books, but I was more disappointed/bored with Breaking Dawn as well. The books were DEFINITELY so much better than the movies.

      Bella was so lifeless in the movies, you're right about that. I actually enjoy Jacob, the other wolves and the supporting vampires roles in the movies so much more than Bella/Edward.

      Overall it's a great series, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. GO Team Jacob!

      Hi Susan...My older daughter Carissa is Team Edward also. The books are WAY better, just sayin!:)

      Hi Cogerson! The say the reason Breaking Dawn didn't do as well as New Moon is because Twilight fans are growing up and are over the series, hmmm...I guess it's time for me to grow up:) I wouldn't doubt if a BD part 3 is in someone's mind...they just have to learn to let go. Did you notice your movie link? Thanks for the comment! Go Team Jacob!

      Way to go Sunshine...I think the fact that you liked books 1-3 means you have the twilight virus...I think many people were not happy with the book....maybe they are did not think it was like a root canal.....but they were disappointed in the book....the movie on the other seems to have good "word of mouth" I am sure the 5th movie will be like Harry Potter's 8th movie ...the biggest hit of the bunch....actually I am sure the producers of the movie are trying to figure how to make Twilight Saga:Breaking Dawn Part I really enjoyed reading your journey in the land of Team Edward. Voted up and awesome.

      Sunshine...I have 2 things to say. First off, it is my opinion that this is some of your very BEST work!! I mean this sincerely. It read so smoothly & held me focused on your every sentence! "Book/Movie" reviews just may be your forte!! I am beyond impressed. and the 2nd thing I have to say is....I have not read this series nor seen the movies...I couldn't help but HEAR about them of course! Expressing your opinion, describing the stories, the characters and the perfect balance of your witty humor, the exchange between you and Michele......This Hub is sheer perfection, Sunshine. As far as I'm concerned, as much as I love your writing, you have seriously OUTDONE yourself here, GF!!! UP and ACROSS the whole damned board!!!!

      Sunshine, liked your title! I believe I can safely say I am the only person in the UK who has neither read nor seen anything about Twilight and I don't intend to start now. My daughter is also into all this vampire stuff but if it ain't got Christopher Lee in it, I ain't interested. Nice hub and I agree with you that sometimes greed comes before quality - what a shame.

      My students got me hooked on the books. I completely agree with you about two things: Breaking Dawn did drag on relentlessly and the movies can't do the books justice. The books were, for the most part, very compelling and intriguing, but as for the movies, I lost interest after the first one. It was good, but I didn't need to go to any of the midnight viewings that became popular. I wait until I can rent them on the dish.

      Great review! Voted up. :)

      Love the hub. I fell in love with the Twilight Saga from the first line I read. But I didn't start reading the books until all of them had been released. I am glad I took a chance on them in the end. I loved all the books though in a way the last one was a bit too long. I saw the first three movies and thought they were great. I have them on DVD too. Yet to see Breaking Dawn (PT I). I have no doubt it will be awesome.
