The Breaking Dawn Experience: Review
The most interesting thing I learned in this first video is that Stephenie Meyer's book publishers WANTED her to change Breaking Dawn, but she INSISTED on keeping it "as is"! IN FACT, Breaking Dawn (originally titled "Forever Dawn", if I remember correctly) was supposed to be the SEQUEL to Twilight!!!
Breaking Dawn Experience Review pt 2 - This teenager continues with a SCATHING review of Stephenie Meyer herself in interviews from a fan perspective. She makes some EXCELLENT points including HOW she has insulted fans and our intelligence. "We KNOW your characters better than YOU!" She talks about how her characters changed between New Moon & Eclipse, but she didn't change them in Breaking Dawn...
Breaking Dawn Book Review: Part 1
She starts with the plot, complains about ALL the unnecessary SEX "I guess the PERVS had their fun", and the BAD Vamp-Baby storyline - among other things.
Breaking Dawn Book Review: Part 2
Begins with a rant about how NONE of Edwards SEXUALLY-ACTIVE vampire brothers/sisters ever noticed sperm during sex - she goes on and on and on. "The ending of this book was the biggest disappointment of my life..."
Breaking Dawn Book Review: Part 3
More on the disappointing ending and the editing "Its like no one edited this book - the mistakes are OBVIOUS". She also goes into the characters changing.
Breaking Dawn Book Review: Part 4

Breaking Dawn Book Review: Part 5
More book excerpts and regrets about "missing her characters" in Breaking Dawn.
Includes Tech's Conclusions
1) Why should I be loyal to an author who betrayed me?!
2) This book is not movie-compatible whatsoever - not as a stand alone. (That is, unless you've got a couple of really good actors who have managed to tap into and continue Twilight over-obsessions to the point that their fanbase WANTS to see as much of them as possible.)
