My Thoughts: First let me say, I can't believe how much this book is hated. I was completely unspoiled before I read this, but I had heard people hated and wanted to return the book. I absolutly loved it. There were so many things I didn't see coming. I don't like spoiling anything so I will try to make this spoilerless.
The story takes place as Edward and Bella are getting ready to marry. They go on there honeymoon and comeback to Forks with something extra. Something that is going to kill Bella.
I love the new character, Renessme. I kinda hope Meyer writes a book about her someday. I can't pinpoint what I really loved about this book, but the more I think about it, the more I think the writing was good and the mystery within the story better. I wish there was more of the series to read.

Yeah, I'm with you, on the most part, I enjoyed this one. Interesting idea, to give Renesme a book of her own. I've never considered that, it would be cool to see where she could take that... =D

I believe Stephenie Meyer has talked about writing a book about either Leah or Renesmee. Maybe she'll do both.

I didn't hate this book, but it wasn't my favorite of the series. I liked seeing a happier side of Edward, and I enjoyed the section in Jake's POV. But I thought the book was a little longer than it needed to be.

I think people were so mad and threw a lot of hate at this book because everyone thought they knew how it was going to go and everyone was wrong. We all hate it when our ideas don't make the cut. How dare authors think they should be able to write their own books the way they see fit! haha

Sorry for the double post.. this just occured to me as I clicked "publish" on the last one.

I liked this one too. I think the idea was a little far out there but it was still a great book!
