I rather find that Twilight is a bit like marmite- you either love it or hate it. Granted the books aren't great literary works of art but Meyer does write likeable characters and you do get invested with the characters.
For months she is left bereft, numb, functioning on autopilot and fiercely blotting out all memories of the Cullens in an attempt to keep her sanity. Then one day, in a potentially dangerous situation in town, she suddenly hears Edward's voice in her head, warning her to be careful and begging her to stay safe. Although the pain his voice evokes is excruciating, she longs to hear it again and sets about discovering what triggers her hallucinations. She renews her friendship with Jacob Black on the reservation, and his presence in her world seems to bring her back to life, putting a smile on her face and giving her an enthusiasm she hasn't felt for a long time. But Jacob has his own growing up to do and his own problems to overcome - not to mention the fact that his feelings for her are well beyond friendship - and all the while, Bella's behaviour is growing more and more reckless. Not only has she discovered Jacob's secret and found out that a fiery vampire is stalking her with revenge in mind, but her desperation to hear Edward's voice is driving her further and further from common sense. In the end something has to give, and Bella goes too far, triggering a terrible misunderstanding that threatens to destroy everything she holds dear.
This novel starts out more peacefully than its predecessor, and the electricity between Edward and Bella has faded into something a little more serene, but Meyer still knows exactly how to quicken the pulse and freeze the blood when she needs to. The end of the book came quite unexpectedly, and there was a sense that this was more of a transitional story, moving on from the neat ending of 'Twilight' and setting up a strong background for the conflicts to come. Despite this, it didn't take long before I was drawn into the story as thoroughly as before, and the climax was so nail-bitingly tense that I had to put the book aside for a while to calm down and stop myself jumping ahead too fast! Bella's quick humour also makes a welcome return as her emotional state improves, and I noted with interest the references to 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Wuthering Heights', given that Romeo and Heathcliff have been frequently mentioned in discussions of female infatuation with the Cullen men!
The verdict? Not QUITE as compelling and sizzling as 'Twilight', but excellent anyway and leaves a tantalising glimpse of what is in store as the saga continues...
