I mean, hating it would hardly be a challenge, would it? But every now and then, I get a passage like this one: I'd been broken beyond repair.
But I needed Jacob now, needed him like a drug. I'd used him as a crutch for too long, and I was in deeper than I'd planned to go with anyone again.
Of course, there are some problems, starting with the fact that Stephenie Meyer can't write to save her life.
But by making it a first-person narrative told by the shy, clumsy Bella, she has found an ingenious way to get around that. Bella's endearing klutziness is just a metaphor for her even more serious problems as a writer.
As she keeps telling us, every time she walks across a room she wonders if she'll trip over her feet and end up in hospital; similar remarks apply to her ability to string together an eight word declarative sentence.
But she's stylistically consistent, and after a while I found myself accepting her. This just happens to be her voice, even though it's not a very good one.
I also thought that she was a seriously unreliable narrator. Not about factual events; to start off with, she doesn't seem to be imaginative enough to make anything up.
We hear over and over again that she loves Edward, and only thinks of Jacob as a friend. But we also hear that Edward feels hard and cold to the touch.
I couldn't help thinking of the wonderful scene in Mean Girls where Rachel McAdams's Cool Mom insists on giving Lindsay Lohan a silicone-enhanced hug; I'm sure that Bella often winces in just the same way when Edward hugs her, though she doesn't allow herself to notice it.
In contrast, Jacob is warm and alive, and she genuinely likes holding his hand and feeling him put his arm around her. There are several scenes when she nearly kisses him, knowing full well what that will lead to.
It's clear that she wants to, and the excuses she makes to herself about him just being an unsatisfactory substitute for Edward are laughably unconvincing.
I found the opposition between Edward and Jacob the heart of the book, and after a while I decided that the author was presenting something interesting and essentially honest.
The tricky thing is that she's subverted the vampire symbol. Usually, vampires represent the young girl's simultaneous dread and fascination in the face of sex.
But Edward isn't very sexy. We're always being told that he looks like an angel, and indeed there does seem to be an angelic purity about him.
I find it much more plausible that he's representing religion, and when you think of him in those terms several other things come into focus.
As Richard Dawkins keeps telling us, a religion is a kind of virus, which infected parties want to spread as quickly as possible; well, vampirism is rather like that too.
And Bella is very conflicted in her feelings about vampires. She loves the Cullens, "her family", but she is well aware that most vampires are monsters.
If you're brought up in a cult-like religion, that's not a bad metaphor. All other religions are evil and wrong; your own religion is the one exception to the rule.
As everyone knows, Stephenie Meyer is a committed Mormon. It doesn't seem far-fetched to claim that Bella's feelings about vampires mirror the author's feelings about her religion, which among other things is very down on premarital sex.
And that's where the werewolves come in; they represent the normal sexual feelings that most young Mormon girls are taught to deny.
The tension between these two conflicting attractions is what gives New Moon its undeniable force, and I found the story credible at an emotional level.
I can readily believe that it's just like that to be a eighteen year old Mormon girl with a healthy sexual appetite, and I feel I understand their plight better after having read this book.
Well done, Stephenie! I can't even Is anyone else completely aghast that this dreck saw a printing press not to mention became a wildly popular series?
I thought I was being hard on Twilight when I criticized it for portraying a relationship so ill-advised and unhealthy and then romanticizing that relationship to young people as if people didn't already make enough bad decisions.
I thought maybe now that Book 1 was done the series would take a nice turn. Enter: New Moon. Exit: Shred of decency.
Were it simply a I can't even Were it simply a problem of the weakly-developed characters, confused and uneven plotline, hundreds of pages of cloying depression only to be replaced by cloying sentimentality later on , and an appalling and unsubtle parallel to Romeo and Juliet, this novel would simply be mediocre teen fare.
But then we must consider the problem of Bella: whiny, needy, and sullen, blindly devoting herself to a partner that constantly patronizes, criticizes, and subjugates her only for him to leave so she can spend the next 8 months in a state of emotional vacancy so acute that she forgets everything else in her life that a girl can be happy about.
Bella is only complete--and she says this herself--when her man is by her side. And apparently, according to Meyer at least, this is ok.
It's ok to create a character so bereft of purpose, self-assurance, and identity that she can't live without a relationship based on nothing substantial, just beauty, lust, and exoticism.
And it's ok for her to experience no emotional maturity whatsoever because in the end, her lover comes back spewing the same gushy nonsense as before while still lording it over her and flying into rages when he doesn't get his way.
The only compelling character in this story was Jacob. That is The irrational hatred between vampires and werewolves gets played off as instinctual, but it has all the logic of bigotry, and that these characters do nothing to try overcoming it is yet another way in which they are immature and non-self-examining.
Due to the audience for which this intended, I have to say that New Moon and the Twilight Saga as a whole are not just poor, they're damaging.
And don't even get me started on the "epiphany" of p. We were expected to believe Bella thought Edward had ceased to love her even though an autistic housefly could see it was nowhere near true?
This book failed. I'm sorry. View all 17 comments. The novel continues the story of Bella Swan and vampire Edward Cullen's relationship.
When Edward leaves Bella after his brother attacks her, she is left heartbroken and depressed for months until Jacob Black becomes her best friend and helps her fight her pain.
However, her life twists once more when Jacob's nature reveals itself and Edward's s New Moon Twilight, 2 , Stephenie Meyer New Moon is a romantic fantasy novel by author Stephenie Meyer, and is the second novel in the Twilight series.
However, her life twists once more when Jacob's nature reveals itself and Edward's sister decides to visit. According to Meyer, the book is about losing true love.
The title refers to the darkest phase of the lunar cycle, indicating that New Moon is about the darkest time of protagonist Bella Swan's life.
Meyer wrote the book before Twilight was published. Writing the book was difficult for Meyer as she feared the readers' reaction to the book and often cried as she described Bella's pain.
I love every single book and it's kind of hard for me to pick a favourite. This one, however, is probably my least favourite. Not for obvious reasons, though.
Most people complain about how nothing really happens, how Bella is mainly depressed and moping and boring. To be honest, this is my favourite part in this book.
It's the perfect rainy autumn day read. When you're feeling down and annoyed, this book wraps you in a blanket and comforts you. Bella's numbness and depression, Fork's atmosphere, Jacob's warmth, all of that soothes your - or well at least my - soul and lets you sulk a little and enjoy the silence.
I could do without the action, though. I don't need the big drama at the end of every Twilight book. I'm happy just reading about Bella's thoughts and inner conflicts, about her life in Forks, her friends and the Cullens.
That's enough for me. Find more of my books on Instagram View all 15 comments. Bella Swan's relationship with her hot vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen is heating up when her characteristic clumsiness messes everything up again at her vampire-thrown birthday party.
In typical Bella style, she gives herself a paper cut and Edward has to literally throw himself in front of her to keep her from being dinner for six hungry vampires.
That's the last straw for Edward, and he and his entire family pick up and leave to prevent any more harm from coming to Bella on their tab.
Bella i Bella Swan's relationship with her hot vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen is heating up when her characteristic clumsiness messes everything up again at her vampire-thrown birthday party.
Bella is, of course, inconsolable, and walks through life like a lovesick zombie - until she renews her friendship with local boy Jacob Black. Jacob is a good friend - and more importantly, he helps Bella fix up two motorcycles and teaches her to ride them.
Bella's friendship with Jacob - and the adrenaline rush that the motorcycles bring - sustains her, until she discovers a dangerous truth about the identity of Jacob and his friends - they are a pack of young werewolves.
And even worse, they have been working to protect her from a vicious vampire who has it in for Bella. After the horrible drudge that was Twilight, New Moon was a pleasant surprise.
At least, part of it was, if you can get past Bella's melodramatic, lovesick, woe-is-me-I-am-the-center-of-the-universe depression. I was actually starting to enjoy Bella's somewhat odd relationship with Jacob, and the book in general, which kind of surprised me - until Edward showed up again.
Then, the writing dissolved once again to "I love you more, shmoopy. That's the problem with this book. I like Bella with Alice. I like Bella with Carlisle and Esme.
I like Bella with Jacob. I can't stand Bella with Edward. And let me rephrase that. There is nothing likeable about Bella as a character - she is a complete and total MarySue.
Jacob is goodhearted and clever and interesting, and I have no trouble understanding why Bella is drawn to him. But why is Jacob drawn to Bella? There seems to be no reason I can understand.
And most laughable of all is Bella's desperate urge to become a vampire herself. Especially at the end, when Edward asks her to marry him first, and she balks.
She's afraid of commitment, but not of being turned into a vampire so she can stay with him always? Give me a break.
View all 28 comments. Twilight: 1. Is this what we're supposed to be teaching our teenage daughters? Apparently Ms. Meyer believes that: 1. Moping for 4 straight months over a goddamned boy is okay, and even though you'll make people worried and your friends may stop talking to you, hey!
Becoming another boy's friend solely to use him to make yourself feel better and to try and fill that "void" the other boy left, without any regard for his feelings and how your actions might affect him is definitely okay because hey!
Even though he doesn't know. But that's okay. Cause you know. And you'll tell him. Okay never. Hopping on a plane to another fucking continent is definitely the best decision you could make when your twoo wuv is in danger of killing himself, even though he's immortal.
With no regard to your father. Who literally just came back from his friend's funeral. Nah, don't think about Dad. He's probably not that worried.
Cause Daddy, I love him! You're supposed to be selfish because you're in love! I'm not even going to try to explain this one.
It's literally the whole book. I'm just so utterly disgusted by what I just read, and I can't believe I managed to stomach it all.
Bella is so incredibly weak as a protagonist, girl, woman, character, whatever. Just the way she treats everyone is extremely self-centered--from her father to her friends to Jacob--and it made me furious.
But it's okay because "she's in pain. A boy broke your heart? I'm sorry, honey, but you'll eventually get over it because you're a strong woman who doesn't need to rely on other people for your own happiness.
Get out there and make your own. Without a goddamned boy. Do you really have nothing else in your life worth living for?

I admit I put off reading this second book in the Twilight series, for a few reasons. Maybe my love for Twilight would turn out to be a fluke.
I had watched the movie recently, so it would feel like a rerun. Well, I finally manned up and read New Moon this week.
I can honestly say this is one of my favorite books of all time. Many bad things have been said about Ms.
Meyer has proven to me that she can I admit I put off reading this second book in the Twilight series, for a few reasons.
Meyer has proven to me that she can write books that I can admire and enjoy, and that I can appreciate from an artistic and literary standpoint.
She brings the story to vivid life, and pulls me right into the action. She knows how to make me feel.
The beauty of their love story. Surprisingly, it did. Meyer took the story that much deeper for me with New Moon. I have actually read few writers that have such a gift for illustrating and bringing emotions to live.
Showing the complexity of relationships, how they all come to matter and play a part of our emotional landscape. The pain that Bella feels when Edward leaves….
I felt it acutely. I felt angry at Edward. I was so mad I wanted to slap him. I could understand why he left, not possibly knowing that his leaving could never be the best thing for Bella.
With this couple, as with my favorites in literature, you can see how mutual, how all-consuming their love for each other is. Some might call it self-destructive.
Even when people try to control them, they still manifest in other ways. Especially those that are so powerful, like the love these two people shared.
The way that Ms. Meyer showed the first four months was so beautifully evocative and yet so basic, it was that much more effective. Just each month written on a individual page.
Nothing else. So she existed. Nothing more. After that, there was her developing relationship with Jacob Black. Again, there was so much skill in describing how Bella becomes friends with Jake.
Her love for him that is more than just a friend, like a brother, but deeper. But in the world where Edward existed, there was no substitute. I thought that the book would be boring without Edward, but it was far from that.
That voice that came around to warn Bella when she was in trouble. When he would smile his sweet smile, and shine his light on Bella. Her friendship also helped him.
She stood up for him and cared about him, bringing something to his life as well. I love Bella as a character. I like how she is shown to be imperfect, but more than willing to examine her actions and her motives to see if she is doing what she feels is right.
Yes, Bella did some immature things, but what do humans do when they are hurting? I think Bella might come off wrong on first glance to the casual observer.
Like she is in her own little world, selfish and self-absorbed. She has to hold herself at a distance or lose herself. It totally makes sense why she falls apart when Edward leaves, and then when Jake pushes her away because of what is going on with him.
The fact that I respected Bella so much is why I loved this book passionately, even though my favorite character is hardly even in the book.
It also testifies to Ms. Her characters keep me invested, the way they interact with each other, creating the fabric of this book, a beautifully-woven creation that sucked me in too deep to let go until I was done.
I love my dad, but Charlie would be a great dad for any girl. He makes this book series special to me, just for his small parts in the books.
Silly me. The wolf pack aspect was very interesting. I felt so much for Jake, how he was confused and at sea; how he truly believed that the wolf that had awakened in him made him bad.
I was glad that he had Bella to help him see that the wolf was a beautiful thing, part of who he was. Part of why she loved him, and like she loved Edward even with his being a vampire, she would continue to love him, even as a wolf.
I have to say that although Edward is still my favorite, I adore Jake tremendously. I just love how he is described.
So yes, I am a Jacob fan now, and well as loving his pack brothers and Emily. Even though there is not a lot of action in this book, it still kept me riveted.
I appreciated how the menace of the Volturi came off so clearly, even with very little onscreen violence.
The contrast between the Cullens and the Volturi was beautifully, clearly rendered. How the Cullens had chosen the connection between them, the capacity to love over the bloodlust, even if it was terribly hard at times.
I love Edward way too much. I also adore the Cullens, especially Alice and Carlisle. It shows a deep, powerful romantic love, but also the love of friendship, the bonds of family not merely by blood, but by choice , and how they all come together, serving as our greatest weaknesses, but also our greatest strengths.
Funny how I can learn this lesson from a book about vampires and werewolves, and a human girl caught between them. I can hardly describe how much I love this book!

Reviewed for THC Reviews Twilight was a grand romance which frequently left me smiling, but New Moon takes on a bittersweet, angst-filled and edgy tone in this continuing dramatic saga of teen love between a vampire and a human.
The book gets off to a rather explosive start, but rapidly turns to heavy sorrow when Edward make a fateful decision concerning Bella's safety.
Following his decision, Edward is off the canvas for about the next two-thirds of the book, as is the entire Cullen family. Duri Reviewed for THC Reviews Twilight was a grand romance which frequently left me smiling, but New Moon takes on a bittersweet, angst-filled and edgy tone in this continuing dramatic saga of teen love between a vampire and a human.
During this time, the story is very reminiscent of Twilight in that it moves at a languid but steady pace while extensive character and relationship development occurs.
The fall-out to Bella's psyche from Edward's choice is heart-wrenching to read. Stephenie Meyer is so good at writing Bella's agony, that I felt like my own heart had been ripped to shreds.
Then a newfound depth in her friendship with Jacob Black, seems to be Bella's saving grace , bringing some sense of peace to her otherwise chaotic life.
Still, danger lurks everywhere, bringing a certain level of suspense to the story, which then escalates into a taut thriller when an unfortunate misunderstanding places Alice and Bella in a race against time to save Edward from certain death.
With so much going on, New Moon was yet another installment in the Twilight series that was extremely difficult to put down. I can't help but continue to enjoy the characters in this series.
I still like Bella very much, but I found myself wishing that she would have a little more confidence in Edward's love for her.
After the beauty of their romance in Twilight , it was hard for me to understand how she couldn't, but ultimately, it seemed that her feelings of inadequacy — of not measuring up to a spectacular creature like Edward — simply got the best of her.
Thankfully she did have an epiphany before the end, so hopefully will be beyond that stage by the next book.
Bella also has a tendency to think of everyone else first except when she's being reckless , which can be a very good trait, but also left me thinking that it might be nice if she took care of herself once in a while too.
While Bella is still an accident-prone magnet for danger, I missed her endearing awkward clumsiness.
Instead she is now living on the edge and seeking out the danger. It was also very difficult to read about her severe depression without being dragged down a bit myself.
Edward is still the same thoughtful and loving hero I adored in Twilight though his absence for much of the story, left a huge hole, which was a major point of the story that I though the author conveyed magnificently.
One of my favorite things about Edward is his wry, teasing sense of humor, but the tone of New Moon is so serious, it didn't allow for many of these moments to shine through.
In Edward's absence, Bella develops a deep friendship with Jacob Black, who ends up being much more than she at first thought he was. Jacob also essentially becomes a second hero and the third point in a love triangle.
While Bella never really feels more for Jacob than friendship or brotherly love, Jacob does fall for Bella. Jacob and Edward have very different personalities, but Jacob is such a wonderful character, I couldn't help but adore him too.
While I don't think that his happily-ever-after does or should lie with Bella, I do hope he gets one eventually. These three characters have completely engrossed my attention, and I can't wait to see what develops next for them.
The secondary characters were wonderful as well. It was nice to see Charlie finally taking charge and acting more like a father. Most of the Cullens didn't play very big roles in this story, with the one exception being Alice.
Because of her visions, she is an intriguing character who I hope will be front and center throughout the series, as I really like her breezy manner and no-nonsense attitude.
New Moon also fills in a couple of the missing pieces of her human past. Although Carlisle only appears in a couple of scenes, he also fills in some missing pieces about himself and Edward.
Billy, Jacob's father, is also present, but doesn't take on a particularly strong role. Readers are also introduced to the Volturi, a group of vampires who live in Italy and are basically vampire royalty.
They are at once both fascinating and monstrous creatures, and unlike the Cullens are extremely dangerous, posing yet another threat to Bella's existence.
Overall, I thought the story had a varied and colorful character palette. As with Twilight , New Moon did not contain any explicit elements — no sex, only a dozen or so mild profanities, and minimal violence.
There is a scene though, in which a group of humans become unwitting prey for a group of blood-thirsty vampires. It does takes place in the background and is not played out explicitly, so whether or not it is disturbing for readers, would depend more on the individual's imagination and sensitivity level.
I happen to have a very vivid imagination, so it did make me a tad squeamish. The story also contains several mature thematic elements, such as severe depression, discussion of and a near attempt of suicide, deliberately reckless behavior, and stealing cars though for a good reason.
There are also racial tensions between two classes of supernatural beings, which includes some derogatory name-calling. In addition, depending on the reader's point of view, it may seem that Edward and Bella's love for one another borders on obsession.
Even I admit, that if these characters were real and normal, I would have been telling them to go get therapy and quick.
It's just that in this particular story that bond gets a rather heavy treatment owing, in my opinion, to it's highly character-driven nature and emotional intensity.
I still think that most mature teens should be able to handle all the complex subject matter, but all these elements would make great points of discussion for parents and educators.
In spite of the serious and sometimes even depressing overtones of the narrative, I found New Moon to be yet another fascinating read.
I really enjoy stories that include some sort of spiritual element, and New Moon has one in the form of an ongoing debate over whether there is an afterlife for vampires or whether they truly are the eternal damned.
I love stories that make me think and there is so much more going on beneath the surface in this one even outside the spiritual thread , that I can't seem to help pondering it even after turning the final page.
New Moon has earned a place on my keeper shelf right next to it's predecessor, Twilight , and I'll be eagerly looking forward to reading Eclipse and Breaking Dawn , the final two installments in the Twilight series, as well.
With two-for-two, Stephenie Meyer definitely deserves a place among my favorite authors. I will be very interested in reading The Host and seeing what other tales might be created from her fertile imagination.
View all 21 comments. You might ask, well. The lack of vampires was the reason for this. I never really cared about the whole Edward vs Jacob thing - sure, I did choose Edward over Jacob, but this was only because I thought the vampires were much cooler than the wolves, and not because I thought that Edward was actually better than Jacob - even at fifteen I could see how glitterboy was actually kind of a douchebag.
But to my surprise, I liked New Moon better this time around. Now we all know this entire series is problematic, so I won't linger on the subjects of Bella's entire life basically ending because a boy broke up with her, or how she just immediately forgives said boy within seconds of seeing him again Instead I had fun; fixing bikes with Bella and Jake, getting to know the wolf-crew and vomiting a little every time Jacob called Bella "honey".
Also, a compliment to Stephenie Meyer for actually introducing the Volturi in the very first book - that was actually some solid planning on her part, instead of just introducing them when they were relevant to the story, nice!
Reading New Moon for the first time. You know I had to do it to them. I'm taking extensive notes as I go along, similar to my Twilight thread.
Scroll down to keep up with me as I update Going into this right after Twilight, I was begging and hoping I wouldn't be let down.
Twilight surprised me with how much fun I had with it. It was silly and over-the-top and romantic and problematic.
All the components for a great book to live-tweet. Which I did. Along with a review. It brought me out of my q Reading New Moon for the first time.
It brought me out of my quarantine funk and gave me something to look forward to, however silly it may be. I was prepared for that side.
I was not prepared for New Moon. Oh, how I wish I would've been prepared for New Moon. Buckle in for the journey that is the second book in the Twilight series.
True to form, it contained all the ups and downs. Read along to discover if there were more ups than downs. Trust me, Carlisle's backstory can wait to be repeated later on.
Also: Good old fashioned relationship troubles with Bella and Edward? I relish that now, coming from the other side of this book.
I low-key love Rosalie. She's the only one to put Bella in her rightful place. In what universe is Bella adored by all vampires?
In the same universe where she makes them runoff from their own home? And meme. Though, I feel like Twilight had more of it than this angsty follow-up book.
Adding to that, I got to wondering late one night. Whenever Bella gets ready in the morning, Edward just sits there waiting for her to be done. Do vampires not use the bathroom or brush their teeth?
That's saying a lot. Also: is she going to repeat this statement throughout the book? We're tired, Bella. There's only one simple solution yet neither seemed reasonable enough to go through with it.
I was a plague. You can go on with your life without any more interference from me. If anything, I was glad to get a break from the daily quarrels that weren't going to clear themselves up anytime soon.
I was over the moon giddy, actually. I wanted that character development. Save yourself in this one, for once. However, what I soon came to realize was that we either get an obsessed Bella going on and on about her vampire-boyfriend made of marble or we get a lifeless Bella moping on and on about Edward being gone.
And then, it struck me. I had stumbled onto a larger beast than anticipated. Bella without Edward is I was seriously contemplating skipping pages to when Edward shows up.
And no, the plot convenience of Edward appearing in her head was not working for me. It's an obvious ruse to appease the fans.
We want the real deal, not an illusion. I am desperately looking for the light at the end of a very dark tunnel. At this point, it has to be said: Twilight peaked at I do not have it in me, Bella.
We're tired. I guess, anything to get out of Bella's mind. But I had an inkling before diving into this book - I even wrote myself a reminder before opening the first chapter - that the author would ruin Edward and Bella so as to make way for our new — not improved , but different — hero I'm having way too much fun with the She's All That references.
I literally wrote a note titled, "Things to remember in case Edward's character gets ruined in the follow-up books. To backtrack, what I noticed pretty early on is that in order to enjoy Twilight I had to go into it with an open mind and zero preconceived notions.
So once I let go of my exceptions for the follow-up book, I could just let things run wild. Let the Cullens be gone for most of the book.
Who cares? Not this open-minded gal. Let a new cast of characters take over. You know, as long as I'm reading and being distracted from quarantine life, I'll take it.
Then, before I could answer, she held up one finger and closed her eyes. Her face went smooth and blank for a few seconds. Alice has to actually foresee the future to answer that question.
Oh, boy, if only I knew. Oh, but how convenient for the author to suddenly have Bella turning into a vampire be considered for the greater good so we can't criticize her in the future.
I can't figure out if that's a genius move on her part or not. I feel like I went into New Moon so naive, and by the end of it, I left utterly destroyed.
I was, for one, not expecting Edward to be gone for the majority of it. I am still struck by that fact.
It definitely added to my trust issues. I have no idea what to expect now with the following books in the series.
What a trick! After reading Twilight, New Moon seems like its evil twin. On that note, another complaint with New Moon that I hope to get resolved in the next book is that there are barely any intimate or tender scenes lingering between Bella and Edward.
I went into this series thinking it was more romance based instead of being so heavily focused on the plot.
I mean does Stephenie Meyer think I chose this series to freshen up my memory on vampires? Who cares about the Volturi? Give me scenes with Edward and Bella.
Scenes where they're not fighting for once. I just wanted that moment of sweet reunion to last longer than one page I'm here for the romance is what I'm saying.
But you know as long as I'm invested enough to continue, I will. I just hope that as the series grows it will focus less on the history of vampires - because I don't remember signing up for Vampires - and give us more of what we're all here for.
If you're looking for an entertaining distraction, be sure to snatch a copy of New Moon for yourself to reminisce or read along with me: This review and more can be found on my blog.
View 1 comment. Edward and Bella are separated without good reasons. He wants to protect her, but now what? I couldn't stomach the first few chapters of this book, after that it was all bearable for me with Jabob and his attitude.
I like his protective instinct of Bella, especially when he cares for her, my heart was melted like ice cream. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty.
When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light.
And there was no more reason, for anything. I loved the feelings this book gave me then. I also could feel why Bella has to act like that during the moment without Edward.
All in all, I still like Twilight, no matter what people say. This series is the best romantic YA I've ever read and nothing can substitute it.

I've been running with this theory that if Meyer was to take these books to any publishing house in the year , she would not be published.
There is no way that anyone would let half of this stuff slide now. So since there's absolutely nothing that I enjoyed about this novel, let the critical analysis begin.
I would also like to point ou Whew child I would also like to point out that reading this book was extremely painful for me.
I only finished it because I was using an audiobook to assist. The first problem of this book is the glorification of this toxic relationship between Edward and Bella.
I'm not sure why this relationship is gloried so much but it's wrong. In the beginning of the book, Edward leaves Bella knowing how obsessed she is with him and their relationship.
Instead of trying to figure out things like the year old man that he is, he decides to run and abandon her while telling her that "he'll love her in a way.
There, in my opinion, is a clear indication of emotional abuse in this particular situation and Edward is never held accountable for it.
After Edward leaves, Bella beings to seek thrill rides in order to "hear" Edward's voice. Clearly this is supposed to be a representation of mental health, but instead of addressing it or using it as a gateway for a bigger discussion, Meyer allows both characters to avoid it.
Even when it appears that Charlie could make a good decision by sending her to a psychiatrist, he is forced to back down and Bella continues with her self-destructive behavior.
There were even specific points in which I felt as though Bella was clearly suicidal and no one does anything to address the behavior.
In addition to this, Meyer engages in constant harmful representation of the Native community. While I cannot speak directly to all of the Native representation present in the book because I, myself, am not Native.
I have listened to Native reviewers and they have explicitly stated that she misrepresents and harms the Native community.
It's actually quite funny that the main character of this book is the one character that I absolutely HATE. Bella has to be the most unlikeable character that I have ever encountered in a YA book.
I think at one point I was feeling for her because I knew that she slipped into depression; however, when she began using Jacob to fill the gap for Edward I fell right back into my previous feelings.
Bella does not care about anyone in the world except for Edward. I mean she doesn't even care about herself. It gets frustrating seeing her constantly put herself down and really disregard her own safety and the safety of others for an OLD MAN that left her high and dry during the first sign of trouble.
I mean most of the book really didn't even have plot. It was page after page of the glorification of their unhealthy relationship.
She was willing to drop Jacob the moment she figured out that it was a possibility for Edward to be back in her life. Jacob just deserved better treatment especially after he was lying to friends and family to keep Bella entertained.
I think what disturbs me the most is how shocked she is when no one wants to deal with her. It should be clear that after you treat people like shit and use them because your boyfriend leaves you then no one is going to want to deal with you.
Clearly, I didn't enjoy this book. I'm only reading these now for the live shows that I will be participating in. They don't hold up against the test of time and I'm truly wondering how Stephanie Meyer could possible think to publish a book from Edwards perspective when everything about these books is so toxic and wrong.

I got a clue from one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite novels, Anne Tyler's Ladder of Years: "The very thing that attracts you to someone can end up putting you off.
Clearly, all I had to do was sift through Bella's personality and figure out which of her characteristics was having this effect. It didn't take long, and that was my next clue.
The secret of Bella's appeal and repulsiveness is this: Bella has no discernible personality whatsoever.
She has no hobbies, no close friends or family, no political beliefs, no artistic tendencies, no spiritual bent, no religious curiosity, no academic interests, no ideas, no ideals.
She gets good grades by diligently applying herself and doing her homework rather than from any intellectual passion. She is a competent cook because the alternative is living on takeout pizza and her father's never-ending eggs and bacon.
She used to live in Arizona, which she liked because the weather is hot and dry; now she lives in Forks, Washington, which she dislikes because the weather is cold and wet.
She says she's a reader, but there's no evidence for it. She doesn't bother getting a library card because the local library is too small.
She plans exactly one trip to a bookstore, and doesn't mind at all that she never gets there. That's it.
That's all there is to her. Bella is to paraphrase Robert Musil the woman without qualities. She is, in other words, a perfect blank on which readers can draw any picture they choose.
Readers who want to imagine themselves into the story can put themselves in Bella's shoes without any difficulty or glaring contradictions.
This same utter blankness is what makes other readers yours truly included want to use the Twilight books as fuel for a line of alternative-energy vehicles we'd be willing to design and build by hand just so we could feel we'd made the world a better place in two ways.
That said, this book is an improvement on Twilight — hence the two stars to Twilight's one. Here's what New Moon has going for it: 1. Edward is gone, Daddy, gone.
For most of Eclipse, the reader is blissfully free of Edward's constant chuckling, condescending remarks, sneering observations, and alleged physical perfection.
So is Bella; but unfortunately, she doesn't take this as good news. Instead, she spends her time pining for him and having even less personality than usual.
When she isn't being utterly passive, she's flinging herself into dangerous situations with no thought for anyone's feelings but her own.
Her monstrous self-absorption is actually rather impressive considering how little self there is for her to be absorbed in. Still, Bella sans Edward is a huge improvement, storywise.
Jacob's story is pretty cool. It's really a shame we all know view spoiler [he's a werewolf hide spoiler ] , because Meyer does some really good storytelling here.
Jacob is afraid that some former friends of his have been sucked into a cult, and terrified that he's being targeted as the next member of the creepiness club.
Even his father seems to see what's happening and approve of it. Bella is worried, but tries to reassure him. The next thing she knows, he's hanging out with the very gang he'd been so afraid of — and wants nothing to do with her, though they'd been best friends just a few days before.
It's actually quite compelling. Unfortunately, Edward comes back, Bella feels validated in her steadfast refusal to get a life, and Jacob is kicked to the curb.
The end. I've already started reading Eclipse. I'm less than pages in and I can't tell you how many times I've begged to have Hitler or Stalin or Mussolini brought back to life just long enough for me to beat them to death with this book and then use it as kindling for their funeral pyre.
I'm absolutely enraged at how horrifyingly stalkerish and controlling Edward is being. Any suggestions for my take on that review are most welcome, since at this point it's looking like one long scream.
Shelves: it-s-complicated. The first thing I'll tell you is that Stephanie Meyer knows her way around lyrical prose. She finds the balance between sensual and realistic, modern day language.
Unlike say, Anne Rice, who bores me to tears with her page-long sensual odes to, say, cement walls and turgid baby nipples.
Meyer doesn't so much turn a phrase, no; she lays it gently on it's back and rubs it's tummy until it purrs. When I landed in Port Angeles, it was raining.
I didn't see it as an omen -- just unavoidable. I'd alrea The first thing I'll tell you is that Stephanie Meyer knows her way around lyrical prose.
I'd already said my goodbyes to the sun. So the first book had conflict, love and sensual embraces that can go no further.
I liked it because I like Bella. She is funny and accident prone. In true Mary Sue fashion, despite her "ordinary" looks, every carnivorous boy within sniffing distance acts as though she bathed in meat.
Edward is not my favorite character. He's gorgeous, melodramatic and just a touch creepy in the 'I lay awake all night and watch you sleep' sort.
In " New Moon " after a horrible incident, Edward breaks up with Bella and leaves town. She collapses. I don't mean she falls down.
I mean she has a total emotional breakdown. This is where my problem with the book starts. Early on, the author captures the exquisite pain of loss.
At first, you ache for Bella, then you get annoyed at Bella, then you want to kill Bella. It becomes interminable. I kept hoping that the book would find Bella learning that she is capable of taking care of herself without Edward and that she can be a whole person without him.
It is a wasted hope. Without Edward, Bella has no more personality. She becomes a turnip. He sucks the soul out of her and turns her into vegetable matter.
Bella spends most of the book angst-ing over her pain and using her friend Jacob. He is funny and they actually have fun scenes together.
Sadly, she calls him her "safe harbor" while she pines for her pasty, Emo Romeo. She is just biding her time until the glistening, fanged wonder boy gets his head out of his ass and comes home.
The readers are supposed to buy Bella and Edward as star-crossed lovers. We don't go on a journey that makes us root for their love.
Superficial and jarringly automatic, he loves her smell, she loves his beauty. They don't earn their relationship and there's no REAL conflict because the author has crammed it down your throat that they are meant to be together.
You never doubt that poor, besotted Bella will choose Edward because she has no identity of her own. I find this whole thing very problematic because it is a YA book.
This is not a healthy book for teenagers to read. This is not for young teenagers, unless you are willing to have some real conversations about self-hood, identity and what real loving relationships are like.
Oh and the plot twist. It didn't hint, it beat you upside the head. You can only be concerned that Bella's IQ is that of a bowl of Caesar salad because you figure it out pages before she does.
Despite my dislike, Stephanie Meyer did wow me again with more of her lyrical prose. The smile broke across his face the way the sunrise set the clouds on fire.
I still hate the book but damn that's pretty. An entire book written like that would be cliche and difficult to take seriously, but in small doses, it's incredibly effective.
If Stephenie Meyer could write a book with a heroine who didn't set my teeth on edge, I'd be shouting her praises from my rooftop.
Not as good as Twilight having chosen to abandon EVERY element that made it so great but still manages to keep this book afloat with the new mystery and dangers.
Edward leaving wasn't surprising, he kept thinking about it before when Bella was in the hospital and it was a drama and angst inducing twist- it was bound to happen in due time.
I just can't believe Bella's self esteem went from feeling occasional envy and remorse due to Edward's perfection to not considering herself worthy of him and c Not as good as Twilight having chosen to abandon EVERY element that made it so great but still manages to keep this book afloat with the new mystery and dangers.
I just can't believe Bella's self esteem went from feeling occasional envy and remorse due to Edward's perfection to not considering herself worthy of him and constantly reminding herself how unworthy she is- she couldn't consider him lying to her at all!
Hey, Meyer, where did the observant, sarcastic Bella go that we grew to know and love? Because this spineless, pathetic shell can't be true- I thought Bella was smarter than that.
I actually googled "psychotic" and found "psychotic depression", the symptoms being: suicidal thoughts Ed's voice itself could qualify , suicide attempts all of her attempts to hear Ed's voice , audio and or visual hallucination Ed's voice again and her vision of him before passing out in the ocean , not feeling as you once did when well hole in chest , aggression well, she couldn't bring herself to be mad at Edward, even if she forgave him and understood his actions, her subconscious should still be mad , frustration perhaps her visits to the Cullen home and meadow , and feelings of hopelessness the entire book, from being upset to aging at the beginning to her woes of the Volturi and Jake at the end.

Edward gibt sich die Schuld für den Vorfall, weshalb er kurz darauf unter dem Vorwand, nicht mehr mit Bella zusammen sein zu wollen, die Stadt gemeinsam mit seiner Familie verlässt.
Bella verliert sich monatelang in Trauer und nimmt ihre Umwelt in dieser Zeit kaum wahr. Erst als sie sich unbewusst in Gefahr begibt, wacht sie aus ihrer Trance auf, weil sie unerwartet Edwards Stimme hört.
Bella und Jacob werden mit der Zeit beste Freunde. Doch von einem Tag auf den nächsten bricht Jacob den Kontakt zu Bella ab.

In der Hoffnung, wieder Edwards Stimme zu hören, springt Bella von einer Klippe und ertrinkt beinahe, wird aber von Jacob gerettet.
Als sie danach nach Hause zurückkehrt, findet sie dort Alice Cullen vor, die sie in einer Vision sterben sah.
Durch ein Missverständnis glaubt auch Edward, dass Bella tot sei. Er reist nach Volterra in Italien. Edward will sie dazu bringen, ihn zu vernichten, um Bella in den Tod folgen zu können.
Alice erfährt von diesen Plänen und teilt sie Bella mit. Sie fahren nach Italien, um Edward zu retten. Dies würde die Volturi dazu veranlassen, ihn zu vernichten, da sie die Vampirwelt vor den Menschen, erst recht vor denen in ihrer Stadt, geheim halten wollen.
