Eclipse was the best one.I know alot of people will disagree with me on this.But what depressed me about Breaking Dawn(and,ultimately the entire saga) was that Edward turned Bella-the one thing he swore he would never do.And,by doing so,he went against everything he and the Cullens believe in and stand for and did exactly what he was affraid of doing-he jeopardized his and Bella's soul.I know what you all are thinking-She was dying and,by Edward turning her,they will be able to spend eternity with eachother.Well,maybe so.But what happens at the END of eternity?The world won't last forever.Vampires,of all people,know that.And what is the point of spending eternity with the one you love if it is in a place where love does not exsist(Hell)?And,even before she was dying, from the moment she met Edward,she chose to be turned and discarded her soul.So the fact that Edward turned her to "Save her life" is irrelavent. Her decision was made from the very beginning.She put Edward above God and her eternal soul. And,as a Christian,I think that is wrong. Even if Bella had died, Edward and the Cullen's would still have been able to redeem themselves-Something Carlisle faught for so long to do.On top of that, they still had little Nessie. Edward and Bella would still have lived on through her.After all,that is what children are all about-a peice of each parent living on.THAT is TRUE immortality.Back to the Cullen's and their search for redemption.Of course,as a Christian, I don't believe Carlisle or the Cullens would ever find redemption no matter how pure they tried to be. The bible makes it clear that is not through works but by faith in Jesus Christ that we are saved.We can't BUY redemption/salvation.And I know alot of you will say "Stephenie Meyer never meant for the story to be looked at this way." But the fact that she puts so much emphasis on the exsistance and importance of the soul leaves the story open to be looked at from this perspective.She began the story giving vampires a soul,a conscience and a sense of conviction.But,in the end, none of it paid off.What were they trying to be so pure for if EVERYONE was going to end up being vampires anyway?Stephenie Meyer failed put across the point that I believe she was trying to make-That no matter who you are or what youve done,everyone has a chance for redemption. But not through good deeds.
