The illustrations were great, but lacked the climatic effect that the two Twilight volumes did. Most of the graphics were black and white with the exception of two or three short scenes. This volume lacked to capture the tone as effectively as I have come to expect. After Bella discovers Edward has left, I wanted to see her state of mind reflected more in the artwork, but this aspect of the story was glossed over. For something that impacted me so heavily in the novel and film versions, I was left feeling let down. The black and white drawn in grey shades, when I’d have liked it to be represented more visually desperate than a white-wash treatment.
With that said, I still liked the darkness – the more sinister aspects of the storyline: the wolves, Laurent, Victoria. While the movies only hinted at this, in the novel it was meant to make you feel uncomfortable, or in the least, shiver. The artwork here captures the impact more in the tone of the novel, and I enjoyed getting more tension for Bella than I had from the film franchise.
Though, my favourite pages from this volume would have to be the end pages, which I feel really captured the soul of the first half of New Moon – desolate, haunting and dark.
So while I appreciated the artwork, the story felt flat. Admittedly there was a lot of detail in there that I did not expect, but there was something about it that failed to punch in its weight class. Possibly because some of my expectations went unmet.
Really looking forward to Volume 2 later this year. And upon searching the internet, it doesn’t appear Young Kim is continuing with the series. Sad. I’d really like to see where her illustrations could have taken the saga.
I really hate the literary ploy of a man falling on the sword and making a major decision that dramatically affects the fate of a woman without feeling the need to consult her because he knows what's best. Just takes her choice in the matter away like she's a child or stupid? That's weak plotting, like run-down-the-nearest-dark-alley-before-tripping kind of writing. PUHLEEZE. They could have separated after having a conversation where he explains why, but noooooo. She can't even be aware he's done what he's done or why. Pretty much guarantees this particular girl will beat herself up without pause or end. There are better ways to write this. Nothing at all noble about how he did it.
Bella describes the Cullens...ad nauseum. They don't EVER just have lips, they have perfect lips. Musical voices, graceful movements, super sharp hearing and vision. EVERY time she sees one. Edward's chest is never just a chest; it's perfect or marble or stone. The Cullen faces are perfection or that of glorious angels or make you want to weep at their beauty or make you feel totally inadequate...EVERY time. EVERY time she touches one, she feels driven to tell us how cold and hard their skin is and yet, of course, silky smooth in its perfection. You get the point. Remind me now and again so I don't get lulled into thinking of them as human, but please, not absolutely every time.
Bella felt at all times and on all occasions so unworthy that it almost reaches the point of narcissism. If somebody 60 feet away from her slipped on an icy sidewalk and got bruised, "It was all my fault" was her go to reaction, as though she controlled the world around her. Good stuff was always somebody else's doing; bad stuff was all her doing. Her incessant ragging on herself could get tiresome.
For all her angst and worry about hurting others, she used Jacob abysmally, and she knew it while she was doing it. I could see why and sympathize but still, she put her needs before that of her friend Jacob's.
The good, and this is what made the book worth my time:
The woman knows how to describe bereft. She knocked the wind out of me. Meyers absolutely nailed it.
