Breaking Dawn Chapter Nineteen
There are thirty nine chapters in this atrocity. That means I’ve got twenty more to go. Suddenly these recaps are starting to look a lot longer. Oh and there’s a preface to this ‘Book Three’ as well. It’s some vague … Continue reading
Breaking Dawn Chapter Eighteen
The title for this chapter is the most appropriate I’ve seen in awhile. It’s ‘There are no words for this.’ I don’t think there’s a better phrase to sum up the whole series and Otis’s career so succinctly. There are … Continue reading

Breaking Dawn Chapter Seventeen
Once again Otis mentions a car. Unlike with the Mercedes, she uses a real model and everything. An Aston Martin Vanquish. So, why couldn’t you call the Mercedes the S-Guard? Why did the Volvo remain a generic sedan and now … Continue reading
Breaking Dawn Chapter Sixteen
Near halfway through and we’re still not going anywhere. This is like a literary treadmill on which you can get nowhere. You know Otis, some treadmills have TVs built into them. Maybe if your next book was like that I … Continue reading

Breaking Dawn Chapter Thirteen
Rose and Carl, sounds like a nineteen fifties sitcom doesn’t it?, go upstairs to get the blood. They discuss whether or not to warm it up. Jacob wonders what other awful things they have in this ‘house of horrors’. It … Continue reading
Breaking Dawn Chapter Twelve
Ok. Otis? I’ll make you a deal. I’ve got a crisp dollar coin here with your name on it should you decide to get this pile of molasses moving again. If you don’t I’ll put that same coin in my … Continue reading

Breaking Dawn Chapter Eleven
These are dragging, I know. But really these are some of the worst. I thought seeing things from Jacob’s point of view would spice up an otherwise dull story. There goes my optimism again. Jake is fighting the urge to … Continue reading
Breaking Dawn Chapter Ten
Jake already knows what’s going to happen. He’s going to make the offer to give Bella regular babies and she’ll say no. So then, why is this book so long? I need a sharpened pencil to stab into my thigh. … Continue reading
