The first time I read this book, I thought "wow this is boring." I didn't care about Jacob and I only wanted Edward to come back. i basically skipped half of the book. I re-read it the other day and I read it all. It was really good. It really captures the connection between Bella and Jacob. It couldn't put it down, even after the third time I read it. I am going to read it again soon, it was awesome!
