I have to cut in here to disagree with you, Running. Would BD have been better written if SM had left Bella as the main viewpoint? Let me trial some text: We got back to Forks. Rose defended me. We kept the baby. Baby breaks my ribs. Ooo, lets try blood instead of food. I feel better!! Oh hi Jake! Blah blah blah! Bye Jake! Can I have another cup of blood? Hi Jake! Bye Jake! More bones breaking! Edward can hear the baby! Leah came in, yells and I feel bad. Oh shit, somethings not right! Oh look, broken pelvis!.......... And it goes on to have the baby delivered, and I'm sure we all know what happens next. I obviously used a sarcastic way of getting my point across, but I meant no disrespect to you. But I hope my point is pretty clear? There NEEDED to be another viewpoint outside of the Cullen house, and the obvious answer to that is - Jacob. So I think she did the right thing, and even though I didn't really enjoy Jacob's viewpoint, I thought it was necessary.
