"Breaking Dawn" by Stephanie Meyer has been my escape for the past few weeks. This was the book club pick for this month and we all really liked it. In fact, book club lasted for three hours Thursday night! Since everyone knew they would be reading it anyway, we decided it was the best choice this go around. It's sweet. It's simple. It's an escape from the real world. I have read some online reviews about the book not being "real" enough. Critics say it's "too make-believe." Um, hello? It's about vampires! What is remotely real about that to begin with? It is fiction - young adult fiction at that. And one more thing . . . is it really so bad to read something that isn't "real?" Don't we all get enough real life to want an escape to a simple romance and dream about being married to a vampire?
