Just when I thought the writing couldn't get any more ridiculous I came across this segment.

Jacob kissed Bella, she tried to get away from him but obviously cant. He continues to kiss her as she stands there limp, waiting for it to end.

When she returns to her house, the chief of police and her father CONGRATULATES Jacob on his sexual assault.

For books that are meant to be for young adults, Stephenie Meyer seems to be sending plenty of horrible messages. Great idea to have young women think that sexual assault is something that their parents would appreciate seeing happen to them.

I never really liked Charlie (he's a lazy, neglectful father) but I HATED him in Eclipse.

His behavior when Jake *assaulted* his daughter was disgusting!

I get his anger at Edward, I really do. But the way he kissed Jake's... behind as a result was ridiculous.

Jake forced himself on Bella. He laughed about forcing himself on Bella; he laughed at her broken hand. Jake was *involved* in Bella's reckless, self-destructive behaviour in New Moon; he revealed that when he brought the motorcycle to Charlie at the end of the book.

Charlie is just so damn smug and selfish. He thinks Forks is the center of the world and obviously, Jake (a local boy) could do no wrong.
