For those who missed out on the discussion of the first installment, Twilight, here is the link: http://www.librarything.com/talktopic.php?topic=35696
Of course: here there be spoilers!
I also have my issues with Bella in this one. She came across a smart, intelligent girl who is responsible. In this book she looses that. Already from the start she senses something is wrong and when indeed something is wrong, she goes into zombie-mode.
About Jacob: didn't like him a bit. At first I thought he could be a healthier choice for Bella, but after becoming a werewolf his personality changed for the worse. I guess you could call Edward obsessive, but surely Jacob! He is trying to force her into a relationship with him, something Edward didn't do. I haven't read Eclipse yet, but I am afraid it will make me dislike Jacob more.
Positive points of the book:
- When Alice and Bella decide to go to Italy. From this point the book doesn't drag on. And Stephenie seems to get her style of writing back, what kinda lacked in the previous chapters.
- the Volturi, I found them quite interesting. And Edward becomes the old Edward again, although slowly
- voting about changing Bella. I love Edwards reaction, it really suits him. But later he gives in a bit to easily, methinks. He ain't gonna do it I tell ya!
is it as good as Harry Potter??!!!!;-)
The thing that annoyed me in this book was Bella's willingness to believe that Edward just stopped loving her. It was a typical plot device and it always bugs me.
I was so-so on the zombie thing. I have had a similar emotional blow and it was tempting to hide inside myself. I didn't, but then I was older than Bella and was in better control of my emotions. (Hormones were done with me!)
I like Jacob. I think he was good for her. I can completely understand why he changed when he did. You probably won't like him in Eclipse either though. I wouldn't date either one of them.
rissa and biblioholic.....thanks......i was not reallly expecting them to be as good as Harry Potter....but i like it and i have read a fan fic version of the first part on facebook bathroomwall and i liked it so i am going to buy it.......
anyways thanks for the advice....rissa.....:-)
The Volturi were my favorite part of this book, I think, but I also need to do a reread. I'm waiting for it to come in on hold at the library. Christmas should come faster so someone can get them for me.
Jacob makes a great friend for Bella, but I do wish he'd take her seriously and stop pursuing a romantic relationship.
Jacob is gorgeous but damn it.
he ruins some romantic moments haha.
but i still love his character.
I loved how it drew readers in
I actaully cried when edward left:(
Jacob halped her a lot but couldnt heal her like edward could
I liked this book because it gives the series more depth.
I liked how the book draws you in because you want to know what is going to happen next.
I too cried when Edward left Bella
I liked the movie for this book, because it shows the book well I thought. Especially the part after Edward left Bella, and she was like a zombie for months afterwards.
