The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1

( 10 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Regardless of the strengths and failings of the Twilight Saga movies, their soundtracks captured the mood of each book perfectly. Breaking Dawn was split into two films, so the movie of the book's first half is more or less a celebration of Bella and Edward's love, and a chance for fans to see the wedding they've been anticipating for years. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1 follows suit, delivering more than a few love songs that are surprisingly angst-free compared to the previous soundtracks. Imperial Mammoth's "Requiem on Water" could inspire the first dance at a wedding reception, while Angus & Julia Stone's "Love Will Take You"'s cheery folk beams with ...

Regardless of the strengths and failings of the Twilight Saga movies, their soundtracks captured the mood of each book perfectly. Breaking Dawn was split into two films, so the movie of the book's first half is more or less a celebration of Bella and Edward's love, and a chance for fans to see the wedding they've been anticipating for years. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1 follows suit, delivering more than a few love songs that are surprisingly angst-free compared to the previous soundtracks. Imperial Mammoth's "Requiem on Water" could inspire the first dance at a wedding reception, while Angus & Julia Stone's "Love Will Take You"'s cheery folk beams with the satisfaction of finding a soulmate. The Features' "From Now On" turns that happiness into energetic pop, and Cider Sky's "Northern Lights" takes it in a sparkly electronic direction akin to Owl City. Even more somber tracks like Aqualung and Lucy Schwartz's "Cold" and Mia Maestro's "Llovera" make it clear that dedication is unquestioned. A handful of more aggressive tracks crash this party: the Joy Formidable's "Endtapes," the Belle Brigade's "I Didn't Mean It," and the Noisettes' "Sister Rosetta [2011 Version]" sound all the feistier next to the gauzy romance of most of these songs, while Bruno Mars returns to the oddly violent side of his songwriting (à la "Grenade") for "It Will Rain," the only truly troubled-sounding song here. Still, the most notable thing about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1 is its unabashed romanticism, and the album more than serves its purpose as a Twilight-branded wedding playlist.

    Book Review Outline Book title and author: Twilight by Stepheni

    Book Review Outline
    Book title and author: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
    Title of review: Twilight
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 5

    Introduction
    After Bella recovers from the vampire attack that almost claimed her life, she looks to celebrate her birthday with Edward and his family. However, a minor accident during the festivities results in Bella's blood being shed, a sight that proves too intense for the Cullens, who decide to leave the town of Forks, Washington for Bella and Edward's sake. Initially heartbroken, Bella finds a form of comfort in reckless living, as well as an even-closer friendship with Jacob Black. Danger in different forms awaits
    Description and summary of main points
    Bella Swan is still very much in love with vampire, Edward Cullen. The rest of the vampire coven who call themselves the Cullens, especially Alice, decide to throw Bella a private party for her eighteenth birthday. Things go wrong when Bella slices her finger and thirst overcomes the vampires. As a result of the danger Bella was put through, the Cullen family decide to leave Forks, Washington. At first Bella exempts herself from all social activities, until she realizes she can coexist with childhood friend, Jacob Black. As usual for Bella, things aren't what they seem. Something is happening to Jacob that he can't explain to Bella, and their friendship starts to deteriorate. But when someone from Bella's past comes back to haunt her, everything will change again
    Evaluation
    The Twilight series falls under the genre of young adult, fantasy, and romance, throughout the story
    Conclusion
    Twilight caught my interest so much; I couldn't stand to put it down once I started. I read this book in one sitting and didn't finish until 5:00 AM, but it was worth every minute. It's the love story between a vampire and a human, and the love feels so real, it's hard to imagine it's just a book. The main character, Bella Swan, is instantly likeable, and it's impossible not to empathize with the new couple as their relationship starts to bud. The vampire, Edward Cullen, is captivating with his extraordinary beauty, ancient genteelness, and ability to read minds. But just when the tension eases and it seems like things are going to work out for them (and that's a hard thing to come by, considering their separate diets), disaster strikes. The book was so much more than I expected; the love feels so real, and at its heart, it's more a love story between two beings than anything else. Of course, because one of them is a vampire, there's a bit of hunting and quite a lot of action as well. This was a thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable book When Edward leaves Bella; her whole world is turned upside down. With Bella's heart broken, she turns to Jacob (Jake) her best friend to fill the void that was left by Edward. As Bella spends more time with Jake, she learns that there's more than vampires in the town of Forks.
    Your final review
    I think the book was a very good interesting book. It’s a story about love, and drama. Were human and vampires bonding together. They fall in love because of the people they are, but not human characteristics. This is the type of book you would read on a daily bassist’s, not even wanting to lay it down.

    An eclectic mix. I would describe most of the tracks as "soulful" and "beautiful." Even the ones that I wasn't particularly fond of weren't disagreeable: just not my style. My favorites are Flightless Bird, Turning Page, and A Thousand Years.
