Watching BREAKING DAWN: PART 2 (accompanied by the Rifftrax comedic commentary), reminded me of how much I did enjoy this book. BREAKING DAWN is the volume of the Twilight series I've read more than once, and this most recent re-reading helped me articulate what I really enjoyed.
I pretty much only re-read the parts from Bella's perspective, and her account of waking up a vampire is where my interest sharpens. It's just so much fun to read about her newborn vampire experiences. Yes, she's a Mary Sue with ridiculous, magical powers, but I liked how much of her inexplicable, awkward characteristics flower beautifully into vampirism.
