I was wondering if anyone has read the last book in the series? Not the one leaked on the internet but the actual last published book? Breaking Dawn?
I read all the Harry Potter books before my son read them.
Not to give anything about the book away, but wondered if anyone thought it was too Steven Kingish in the direction it went. Maybe I was thinking more Rosemarys baby! LOL I remember reading the Exorcist and thinking NO WAY CAN THEY PUT THIS IN A MOVIE!!! and they DID...so wonder if this will end up in the movie too!
I am NOT sure I would want my 13 year old or younger!!! reading this book. I was amazed at the graphic nature of parts of this book.
IMHO it was way too mature for the audience that seems to behooked on this series.
Maybe I am just an old fogy!and I was way more immature at that age back then. Kiddos are so much more exposed to stuff nowadays than we were back then!Edited by: arneyls

I read the Twighlight series too. I totally agree with you...I sure don't think they should be for young kids! Parts of the book were pretty freaky even for me!

I've read the series and I think the books are great. They are listed under the young adult category and from what I've read it's quite ok for that age group and older.

My 15 yr.old son and I read all 4 books and they were very good.If you dont want your younger kids to read it try renting the movie " twilight" it didnt show anything graphic. It was a preaty good movie ,I cant wait till the next one comes out.

The books get more in detail about going on thier "hunts" and the taste of blood and stuff like that. cant remember which book but one of them talks about Bella and Edwards honeymoon. You may not want him to read about that. I work in a doctor's office and I have seen more adults reading them because thier kids were reading them to.Edited by: mharper

I've read them all and there is nothing 'hot and heavy' in them. Sure they go on a honeymoon and she drops her towel... and then it cuts to the next morning when they wake up. Perfectly fine for a teenager I think.

I remember reading Forever by Judy Blume at age 13...Ralph anyone?? Much much more graphic - Twilight is very tame in comparison.

Plus it promotes responsibility for your actions - they deal with the consequences - its not going to corrupt any teen I know.

I don't believe in avoiding issues - I think it leaves kids unprepared when they finally face them. You could always take the opportunity to discuss someof the issues raised after you both read the book.
