Sneak Peek at Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

So, who do you prefer...Edward or Jacob?

I'm on the Edward camp.

Jacob here. Cold and a chest as hard as granite just make me shiver and run the opposite way.

Sorry. This excerpt does absolutely nothing for me.

Edward...as if there really was any other choice!

Jen Robinson said...

Edward, largely because of the Elizabeth and Darcy vibe that Bella and Edward had going in the first book.

A Literate Musician said...

I am so on Team Edward.

beth said...

I've only read the first book. I actually stopped reading because while I wanted Bella to go with Edward, I could see no happy resolution for them. I think they've got real love and would love to see them together, but Edward can't quit being what he is, and the sacrifice is (IMO) too much for Bella to make for him. Anyway you go about it, I don't see a true happy ending.

Dawn said...

EDWARD all the way=)

it wouldn't feel right if after all that bella and edward have been through she ended up with the puppy... right?

EDWARD ALL THE WAY!!!!!!

I guess I'd better read these. All my friends' teens love these things.

I'm still mooning over Diana Wynne Jones' male characters (while ostensibly reading aloud to the kids). I love her men. Sigh. Oops, sorry. I promise to get back on track...

I'm going to give this series another shot. Thank you for the link though. I've sent it to all the "Twilight" fans I know.

Oh, it's complicated. As far as people go, I like Jacob much better. If I had to choose one for myself, I'd choose Jacob. I think it's too much for Bella to become a vampire. However, past history has revealed that they are "imprinted" on each other and are absolutely miserable without each other. I just can't see Bella moving on. At this point, she's 18 and old enough to make her choices, even if they're the wrong ones. I'm just glad that when she becomes a vampire (as I think she will), she'll be marrying into a lovelyfamily.

Here's how I think the vampire cross-over will happen: something will occur where Bella is dying, and Edward bites her to save her, as it were. It'll be the MacGuffin needed to assuage Edward's conscience.

Urgghhh! stuck on the fence
if I had to choose I would say Edward because unlike Jacob, hes sensitive of the feelings of others and he doesnt have a temper. Oh and what if Jacob "imprints" on someone? That would totally bomb.
Jacob on the other hand: you can grow old with him while with Edward you either have to give up your human life. But I would still choose Edward. Cant wait for the movie and the last book!!

I totally agree with mayla, it would soo awsome if jacob "imprinted" on someone else. its kind of hard to choose between...i love wolves! *sigh* but then as well i would like to be immortal,(lol i sound like a real stupid dreamer) so i decided ....i would LOVE to be on Edwards team!whoooo it was a tough decision.
well type yall laterz!

I am completely Edward. I'm sorry, but his complete gorgeousness PLUS the fact that he is COMPLETELY devoted to Bella just can't be beat. I mean, yeah, Jacob is a nice kid and all, but Edward is SO much more considerate of others' feelings. GO EDWARD! :)

Oh, and did I mention that he's completely dreamy??

Kate said...

well...ummm....hmmmm....well.... JK
TOTALLY EDWARD! although i do feel a tad sorry for Jacob, hopefully he will imprint on somebody soon...oh well Bella and Edward are perfect together I wouldnt have it any other way exept maybe
ME & EDWARD!!!!! jk lol

Mira said...

I think it's very difficult...On one hand I am completely Edward (Jacob cannot cope with Edward at all!)! On the other hand ending up with Jacob would be rather realistic than Bella and Edward staying together for ever...But I love happy endings! So who cares about reality? (not to mention the fact that the whole story's about vampires and werewolfs and so on...) ;)

amy said...

i am so with edward!!!

everybody wants an awsome vampire for a boyfriend not a dog who likes to mess with your feelings!!!

am i right?

kendall said...

oh my... okay i am TOTALLY on edwards team... i LOVE edward!! bella and him are just meant to be together. i mean i think jacob would be a great friend and all... but he cant compare to edward. hahah. honestlyyy. ahhh. i think its great that jacob was there for bella when she needed him though. and i feel bad that bella kind of... dare i say... "used" him... kindof... i really hope he imprints on someone else because even though he doesnt compare to edward.. i still love him. [:

shari loves edward said...

omg i love the twilight saga and know she will stay with hot handsome and dreamy edward!

Pamela:) said...

om. totally edward i mean honestly in new moon she was nothing without him. and she almost commited suicide just to hear his voice. but their is one thing that jacob said in eclipse that was really meaningful "It's like Im a healthy dose of sn, and he's a drug" omg i was like :O. but yes totally edward, and it would be so awsome if jacob imprinted on someone. personally i think it should be that laurie girl because she lost sam and he lost bella. and the last scene in the book between them is like close but not admitting it. :).

I am fully on team Edward! Jacob's nice and all, but Edward is much better for Bella because she loves him back! Jacob needs to find someone else and get over her.

Anonymous said...

EDWARD!!!!! He is hot, sensitive, kind, and he loves Bella! What's not to like?

Anonymous said...

Im totally on team Edward, Jacob ruins everything by making Bella confused about who to choose, besides Edward is PERFECT for her, why not??1

Edward Lover said...

I am for Edward Cullen.The marble bodied,vampire who saved Bella's Life ,if people do not remember.Plus Jacob is merely a friend.All though Bella sort of had feelings for him and Jacob confessed his love for her in Eclipse ,Edward will always be Bella's one true love.I hope that Bella doesn't make a wrong choice in Breaking Dawn,which I highly doubt that will ever happen.But you know how books are tricky.And Edward sparkles,who can beat that?Huh?I also hope when Bella gets changed..if she does she is still Bella and remembers everything.Because they say you loose most of your human life when you turn into a vampire. Well I still say Edward!!
GO EDWARD!!

Totally Edward, they absolutely love eachother.

Esther said...

i would say jacob.sorry guys

Anonymous said...

yeah jacob rox.edward is dangerous.vampires are dangerous.trust me.wolves are better i should know(< - >)

Anonymous said...

bloodsuckers are dangerous she should have chosen jacob.it would have been safer and better.but because she didn't jacob should get over her.JACOB ALL DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Bella is an idiot for doing this.

ally said...

What??? There is no comparison that edward is more thoughtful and considering... and why does everyone think that Edward is dangerous when he is like almost a century decade old???? when jacob is a new borned dog like 2 months old???new werewolves are soooo risky and just by one movement she could be dead...be edward is in better control not to hurt eachother and so to come to and conclusion... i am on......TEAM EDWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edward all day! =D
He is just so beautiful and perfect. I wish he was mine(=

Jacob?--no, never

I love Edward, and I have a hard time thinking that he is a fictional character.=/
