This was my favorite so far in the series. Its staying on my Keeper List. The boys are fighting mad over Bella, and its driving her nuts! Even though almost 99% of the female popuation is in love with Edward (myself included) You cant help but fall in love with Jacob too. Too bad a girl cant have her cake and eat it too.
I liked this book because we get to learn more about other characters, like Rosalee and Jasper. The info we learn in this book on Rosalee is relavent to events in the final book as well.
I don't know how I can be so hooked on reading a book with two lead characters who annoy me so much. I guess the reason Edward and Bella are so perfect for each other is that they can both be such whiners at times.
The love-triangle in this has definitely been done before (anyone read Anita Blake books?). Although, Jake is probably my favorite character out of the three.
The overall story is pretty good and it does keep you hooked.
Its so hard to write a helpful review w/o giving away details. This is my alltime fave series. Third book in series did not disappoint. I read all 629 pages in 2 days. The ending left many questions unanswered, but Im sure they were just left to be answered in the next book. This book was worth every penny. I only wish the next one were available already!
I have read Twilight, New Moon & now Eclipse in a matter of 9 days. I have never not been able to put a book down like this, EVER! Meyer is a fantasic writer to say the very least. You can relate to the characters at least on some level and they leave you NEEDING to know what's going to happen. I know lots of people aren't interested in "vampire" stuff, but these books are about so much more than vampires. Certainly the last to jump on the Twilight band wagon, but oh so glad I did. I couldn't be more pleased with a writing!
While I didn't really like Twilight, I found New Moon and Eclipse to be more entertaining, as if Stephenie Meyer's skills as an author improved as she wrote each book. She does spend a lot of time on the mundane, and then rushes through some of the more climactic scenes, but in all I thought this was a good book.
