As this series progresses, I like each book a little less than the one before. Only the amusing narration, bickering, and jibes; Alice’s child-like glee; and the more serious and intriguing developments with Victoria and the Volturi kept me reading.
I thought Bella had made her choice in “New Moon.” I didn’t expect to see her conflicted in “Eclipse.” She got her prince, her angel, back, and now she’s having second thoughts about the wolf? Throughout the book, Bella’s feelings for Jacob are presented as friendship. She enjoys his company and her time among the Quileutes. . Then suddenly, we are told in Chapter 26 that she is actually in love with Jacob and tempted by the life he offers her. This revelation might have been more believable if we had indications that Bella saw qualities in Jacob that Edward lacked, or that a mortal life was starting to appeal to her.
My sympathy toward Bella disappeared with each choice she made to run off to Jacob and allow physical intimacies more appropriate for sweethearts than best friends. It doesn’t matter that this was how things were between them “before,” Edward had come back and the relationship was restored. It wasn’t helping Jacob let go of his romantic attachment. It just encouraged him to keep thinking that if he waited long enough, Bella would choose him. As it was, I found his cockiness off-putting and absolutely despised him for forcing himself on Bella in a sickening scene. Charlie earned a special place in “character Hell” for his approval of Jacob’s actions. Edward alone redeemed himself from the unsavory turn his character had taken by giving up trying to dictate terms to Bella and instead considering her happiness.
In spite of disliking how the characters behaved in this book, I still found parts I enjoyed. Humor was sprinkled throughout, which helped tremendously with finishing the story, and the plotline with Victoria and the newborn army was riveting.
By the way, does anyone else ever read about Edward’s icy body temperature and think “There are some parts of a man I really don’t want to be freezing cold”?
With the threat of the Volturi coming to Forks, the wolves and the Cullens must work together to keep Bella and the town safe. We also learn more about some of the other family members and their history of how they came to be.
An action packed read with welcomed moments for your heart from our favorite couple.
Stephenie should stick to SF&F ... period. She is still wildly followed. Her audience is waiting on her. "The Chemist" did not get it done.
I actually really fell in love with how thee editions look. You can read a million reviews for the book itself, but as far as this particular edition goes this is a true gem. It's really surprisingly elegant and 'adult' looking. As in, it fits in well with other special edition collections and doesn't smack of all of the mega merchandising you would normally expect from this franchise. I actually liked it so much I bought the other books in this series to complete the collection and they really do look beautiful together.
This would be an amazing gift for an Twilight fan or for anyone who wants to read the series and not feel completely embarrassed by carrying around a paperback edition with a bunch of red eyed teenagers on it!
Truly, this is a very very well made and beautifully designed edition. Stephenie Meyer should be proud!
