Love this one

This one is action packed. I really enjoyed it, much better than New Moon. More in depth with the characters and it brings everyone together in a way. Wonderfully written, and again a seamless story line from start to finish. I love this series.

My Favorite In This Series

The best of the four in the saga, in my personal opinion.
Something about it managed to form an exceptional blend of supernatural thriller and tumultuous relational examination. It's romantic. It's intense. There's a lot more background lore on the shifter wolves as well as the Vampires and their politics. And as there is finally some real action, it kept my attention. As with the two that preceded it, I could feel satisfied if that were all there was. But fortunately, there's more.

Okay...

Eclipse is the third book in the twilight saga. I thought that the books get more boring and not as good as the story progresses. I think the author was just dragging out the story a bit to much, a whole lot of this book was just waffling along. I got bored and I put it down halfway through as I had was piled on with assignments for school and just didn't have the time for such a big book that didn't really have my attention.

The idea of the newbie vampires was really smart and it made the book a slight bit more exciting than the last one, New Moon. The plot was dragged out quite a bit but it had its good times. I recommend it to the lovers of the last two twilight books but not to people who didn't enjoy as much

Eclipse

Like I said, Eclipse is easily my favorite, but I found that I didn’t enjoy it as much the second time around. This time the annoying things stuck out more and hindered my enjoyment of it, but it was still a great read. There’s a lot going on in Eclipse, and it has all of the features that the previous books were missing.

There’s finally a sense of urgency with the plot. What appears to be a serial killer on the loose in Seattle, ends up being something much, much more, threatening both Bella and the Cullens. Instead of just sitting around, Bella is actually scared and tries to help, despite being just a lowly human with no special powers or skills.

Also, we finally get out of the tiny Bedward bubble and learn more about other members of the Cullen family and the Quiluete tribe. This was probably my favorite part about Eclipse, even though it added a lot of pages of info-dumping. At least it was interesting dumpage, particularly Rosalie’s chapter. She’s not just a beautiful bitch. There’s much more to her, and the situation surrounding her transformation definitely explains her tough exterior.

The thing that made me drop a star, was all of the manipulation going on disguised as love! Edward and Jacob both admit to manipulating Bella’s feelings, and Bella knowingly manipulates them both, and of course Edward and Jacob manipulate each other for the sake of Bella’s love! And Bella manipulates Charlie, which is just inexcusable and unforgivable since I adore Charlie! It was all a big mess and bothered the heck out of me. Can’t anybody just say how they’re really feeling and accept everyone else’s feelings, instead of trying to take advantage? Apparently not.

Eclipse

I read Eclipse when I was about twelve and It still is one of my favorite books. I just wish that Miss Meyer wrote a little better then what she does. I wish that instead of growing up with Bella age wise we could have grown but with her personality wise too. But Bella remains the same through all five books. Bella is still my most hated character. Eclipse is one of my favorite books and I've tried rereading and I can't I find to many flaws in the plot and the writing.
