This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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?
Can’t help feeling slightly disappointed by this. Having seen the movie, I expected tons of action. Instead, I got none. I also got lots of Bella whining. I can’t seem to make up my mind on whether I like or hate her.
We all can agree that Meyer isn’t the best of writers, but she’s not bad either. I just wish that the book was a little more involved in action and be less about Bella’s indecisiveness, on whether or not she is in love with Jacob. The love triangle has me cussing. I am not overly fond of Jacob, not because he’s trying to steal Bella from Edward, not even close. I don’t like him that much because he’s immature. I even think that maybe, just maybe if he’d just let Bella make up her mind on her own, maybe she’d even choose him.
I believe that if Meyer would be less hell-bent on describing all the ways Bella loves Edward or how she’s in love with two people at the same time, and instead created some action sequences, it would have been a really good book and an excellent series overall.
I will of course be rereading the last one – which in my opinion is the best.
