As New Moon, the sequel to Twilight, begins, a bloody incident at Bella’s 18th birthday party forces Edward to conclude that, as a vampire, by his mere nature his presence is dangerous and that he’s compromising her safety. Edward and his family leave town and Bella is devastated and spends several months despondent before finding new companionship in Jacob, a family friend. But she is surprised and hurt when, after a few months, Jacob also begins acting strangely.
New Moon doesn’t quite measure up to Twilight, but it’s an enjoyable read. I’m still not convinced that Bella and Edward are actually in love – Edward seems to be influenced more by Bella’s “scent,” and Bella by Edward’s glamour, though I suppose if they’re both happy, what’s the difference? I’m looking forward to Eclipse next month.
Ms. Meyer acknowledges both Muse and My Chemical Romance as inspiration for this book. How cool is that?
This book was definitely a lot easier to enjoy the second time around. Knowing that Edward was going to return really allowed me to enjoy Bella’s time with Jacob a lot more, even though I still anticipated his return more than anything.
this book is absolutely incredible. the twilight saga has officially taken over my life. this book got so intense at parts that i literally had to take a break from reading to calm myself down. I LOVE IT!
Out of Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse, I thought New Moon was the weakest. Perhaps it’s because I am such a fan of Edward, but I found the plot far less captivating then the other two books. It is still worth consuming, however.
An absolutely FANTASTIC story! It was as brilliant as the first one(Twilight) I cant wait for the thrid book(Eclipse) to come out! I feel that this book along with the first and soon third book, will forever be revered as classics!
This book, this series, twilight and new moon by stephanie meyers is absolutely amazing! I read both books in 3 days, i couldn’t put them down, i read them in class, at lunch i even snuck the one into work and read it when no one was looking. The next one is coming out in August and i literally cannot wait, i’m going to see if i can pre-order it on tuesday. If you have not read either of these books, you have to, yes they’re about vampires, but the story behind it, the corny love parts, the hot main character, absolutely fantastic read!
