The name itself strikes view points from all around;but in this article I'm going to talk about her attributes and her flaws,or as I like to call it her pros and cons.
Bella Swan is one of the most interesting charecters I've met(or read!),but I am just going to get straight to the point.
First,I'd like to say how simply amazing it is that Bella can be so sacirfical.
In the first three books she is torn between Edward Cullen and Jacob Black.
Her first love is Edward Cullen and yes,she is sickly in love with him,but the one she's always loved,maybe even just as a friend that eventually progressed,maybe not (I'm not willing to go into that right now)but still their was at least a glimpse or a flicker of light that revealed that she really did love Jacob in a different way that she had always try to hide.
She is so loving and caring and that is too,amazing.
Now let's get to the hard parts.The cons of this segment.
As you saw in New Moon when Edward left Bella saw life as nothing anymore...just days that passed by,just life going on...nothing to it except nightmares and faded dreams,that's it.
Now you can agree or disagree this is my opinion on this topic.
Yes,Bella should have been sad,mad,or even CRAZY,anyone would be like that if their EDWARD left! But maybe she went a little overboard.What I mean is,she has a slight problem with attaching herself unto people to fast.She only knew Edward for barely a year and yet,her life was gone and there was no meaning to it whatsoever.
Another problem one she admits herself in Eclipse chapter:Monster,she says that she is like Cathy in Wuthering Heights,where she made the two people she loved most leave and she couldn't do anything about it.
Not that she could do much to prevent it but still that problem still is there.
I like rather love charectors who have problems,those problems,as every author knows,really reveals the good things,heroic things,that the charecter does(like Chase Haven in Elfin Magic,link:link
oh,wait you don't know yet.Ah,life is a sale).
Back to the point!
Thats why,in the end,the cons of Bella Swan are erased...
with the pros!
