The vampire love saga continues in Stephanie Meyers third novel, Eclipse. As we are drawn back to forks we see Bella as the time for her transformation nearer. In this book she starts to realize the disadvantages of becoming a vampire. Not only will she loose her family and her humanity but also her best friend.
After being a HUGE fan of the two previouse books this one was an interesting case. Never have I so ferociously devoured a book I detested so much. I was so entranced that I read this book in less then a day yet hated every minute of it. To begin with, I prefer novels with more substance then included in the average romance novel. I couldnt help but reword almost every sentence to make it sound more sophisticated and I gagged during at least three quarters of the romance scenes. The hardest part was Bella. . She was the most tedious and bland character I have ever read about with almost no good personality traits. Bella is hypocritical, fickle, and quite self centered not to mention backstabbing. I would hope that a book so beloved by a multitude of girls everywhere would try to display a noble, strong heroic young woman instead of a wishy washy little girl whos only existence relies on two boys. Although Stephanie Meyer is, in my opinion, an amateur author compared to my favorites she has mastered the secret of keeping readers spellbound. I would recommend this book to anyone who was brainwashed by Martians or needs light reading while recovering from a coma.
