Book Review: Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
(The Twilight Series, Book 3)
Summary:As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob—knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?
I've stuck with this series from the beginning starting with Twilight and enjoyed reading the first two books. This one, I had trouble with...the story dragged out for me and I think the story could have been told in less pages as some things seemed drawn out to me. I actually put the book down halfway through as the continual descriptions and details of the vampires lives started to bother me. I also was tiring of Bella's emotional meltdowns. I picked it up again about a month later and did finish it. I think it may have been my mood at the time..sometimes, I find myself tiring of a book or it is not holding my interest and later go back and don't feel the same. Personally, I am rooting for Jacob...he seems so much more real and authentic to me than Edward. I am probably in the minority here though as from what I've read, most people adore Edward! This series is addicting, even though I liked the first two books more I will definitely be reading the next book in the series Breaking Dawn.
