Review from the older audience,
This review is from: New Moon: 2 (Twilight Saga) (Paperback)
I am in my late 30s and read Twilight because I had heard good things and the hype of the movie was good. I enjoyed it immensely and was drawn in by the love story and taken back to my high school days. I became a bit pathetic and moped around for a few days when I had finished the book...simply because I wanted to read more.
Wanting more and itching to read New Moon, I logged on to Amazon and read the reviews and became a little worried as so many people gave it mediocre to poor reviews. However, I decided just to buy it and read it and I am so glad I did.
I found that it is a much better written book than Twilight. It seemed like Stephenie Meyer actually THOUGHT about what she was writing this time, and didn't just throw stuff on the pages randomly.
The compaint other reviews had was the lack of Edward in the story. However, I did not find this a drawback in the least, it was necessary to keep the emotions running as strongly as they do in this book, and I found the storyline excellent. Please do not be put off by the negative reviews - this book is well worth the read.

I agree with this review - this book is much better written than the first one, and I don't think Edward not being in this book detracted from it at all. It also got going a bit more quickly, which I appreciated - I found the first 150-200 pages of Twilight a little tedious...

But is entering a state of catatonia truly the best way to deal with your boyfriend leaving? It doesn't send out the best message does it?
