Finished Breaking Dawn...
****Don't Worry, NO Spoiler!******
At 1:24PM, Sunday, August 3rd, I finished Breaking Dawn and therefore finished the Twilight series.
I sat and wept.
Wept out of gratitude to Stephenie Meyer for sharing her talent and being true to the characters despite knowing people would be unhappy.
Wept out of sadness that the love, trials, victories and magic of Bella, Edward and the Cullen Family had come to an end.
Wept out of delight that the book was more than I ever could have hoped it to be.
Wept for the wonderful way Bella grew and changed right before my eyes. Watching someone come to understand the meaning of "more than my own life" is magic.
I have heard that Twilight fans are disappointed. I think many of them are young and not able to grasp the essential beauty of the story: the characters willingness to sacrifice. This book spoke of a love that they don't yet know.
For me, it was absolutely perfect. I will miss my friends.
