5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, can;t wait for the next!!, 24 Jan. 2008
This review is from: New Moon: 2 (Twilight Saga) (Paperback)
I read Twilight and this book in a matter of three days because I found myself being drawn into the world of Bella, feeling the emotions she goes through and the desires she has for her lover Edward and her best friend Jacob. Although i love this book i can't help feeling that Stephenie Meyer allowed the reader to be caught up in the emotions and love that Jacob feels towards Bella and probably ruined the bonds that the reader developes for Edward. His absense during the book left an empty space in Bellas life and it also leaves an empty space in the book. Probably too much of an empty space. The passion becomes lost and although Bella comes round to thinking that maybe she should accept Jacobs feelings towards her and forget about Edward, it just doesn't pack the same punch as Twilight. Then all of a sudden Edward is thrust straight back into the lime light!! I can't help but feel sad for poor Jacob, he loves Bella and she dumps him when Edward returns. I found myself crying along with Bella. When she describes the feeling of her chest being ripped apart with the loss of Edward, as a woman i could relate to her feeling of utter loss. Stephenie Meyer really knows how to pack the emotional punches into a story aswell as the action sequences. I love this book as a whole and can't wait for the next one to be delivered. I'm ordering it straight away from Amazon!!

I think your reviews are well written and make me want to read the book, but please write a Spoiler warning at the start, next time, because I now know what happens in books 1 and 2 before having read them. :( Thank you!

I just started to read this book and after Edward left Bella I found myself crying my eyes out too. I was so upset that I had to stop reading for a while! Im going to finish reading it later on but i had to come on here to read some reviews as the story is empty without Edward, no matter how lovable Jacob is, I miss Edward. How caught up do we get in these books, they're truely are amazing.
Im glad I read your review and glad that other people get into the book as much as I do =) I think with this book its gonna be a case of reading it as fast as i can until its finished then I can read the next book. Then when im eventually finished the series ill reread them all again and actually enjoy them without so much heartache for the characters!
Thanks for this review, its perked me up lots!

Guys, it's called <<<spoiler alert>>> or <<<spoiler warning>>> or whatever other warning your creative mind can come up with - you could have added it in your review title. I've just finished Twilight and now I know what happens in New Moon before I've even ventured to my bookstore to buy it. So thanks again guys - you've probably ruined a great read!!
