the message of this book: if your boyfriend dumps you curl into a catatonic ball and wish you were dead for 400 pages. then weep for joy and cling obsessively to said boyfriend when you get back together. And mention how his icy chest feels like marble in every other sentence. so bad.
I have been told by COUNTLESS people that you either LOVE New Moon or you LOVE Eclipse (book 3), but you can't love both. I disagree. I loved all 3 books in this series so far. I will admit though--and perhaps warn others--- I cried more reading New Moon than I have ever cried while reading a book.
I don't want to give away anything for those who haven't read New Moon yet so I won't go into details about what's tear-jerking or why some people might be disappointed. I will just say that I read New Moon in one sitting, just like I did Twilight.
The writing in this book is just as vivid and descriptive as in Twilight and the scenes created are unlike any other I have ever read.
This series is just amazing and I can't come up with words that can describe just how great I think they are.
For the adults out there, don't look past this series just because you think it'd be childish since its techincally a YA series. These books are for everyone. Even if you don't like vampires or supernatural, I promise, these books will touch you.
Boring! I thought if I kept reading it might get better but it doesn't. This teenager is a most annoying person, wishy washy. It is just so much 'thinking' all the time that is about what most of the book is about-what she is 'thinking'. Doubt if I read the other two books.
Okay. You caught me. I'm obsessed. Happy? This book did it. My loving wonderful husband ran out in a cold snap to get me the 3rd book because I found out I didn't have the 3rd one.
Okay, so this book was really good... I wish I could explain why I'm obsessed with these books. I'm usually not into this type of book much less ones that are so "over hyped", but these are great mindless easy reading fiction.
Well worth a read, great for an airplane, even better for a comfy chair and a warm cocoa.
The overall story was good, but I'm really surprised at how annoying I can sometimes find Bella and Edward yet still love the book. Edward is 5 times her age and is sometimes more immature (the whole guilt thing) than Bella.
The werewolves in this are pretty cool, even though sometimes annoying.
I found this a great read, though, even with some of the eye rolling I had to do over things that happen in it.
The second book of the Twilight Saga picks up where the first left off, and is another excellent read. The relationship between Edward and Bella faces more of the troubles and dangers that come with a vampire and a human being together, and we also get some werewolves mixed in, just to make it more interesting. Like the first book, I highly recommend it for everyone, despite having the same writing and editing flaws as the first volume. It is yet another example of a book I couldn't put down.
I really enjoyed the Twilight Saga even though I had been warned that it was a "whiny" teenage story and I wouldn't like it. New Moon goes deeper into the story and builds the connection between Bella and Jacob.
I'd seen the movies and wanted to read to books to see what the movies left out. I'm really glad I did.
