I honestly think New Moon is the best out of the Twilight saga (if you can even pick a "best" - Stephenie Meyer is just so consistent that way.)
It's absolutely addictive. I actually cried - which I have NEVER, EVER done because of a book before.
The characters were very realistic and alive, and I could totally relate to the protagonist, Bella Swan. When true love is lost, she does the best she can to survive, and looks to other people to comfort her.
The plot was very deep and there were some unexpected twists. Altogether and excellent book and well worth the money.
I love this series!! At first when my friend tol dme to read it, I didn't think I would like it with the vampires, but these are sooooo good!! I finished New Moon in 3 days! Jacob was in this book at lot more than Twilight. I wish Edward was actually in this story more, but you never know!! I think anymore who likes to read will like these books. Steephenie Meyer is doing an amazingly great job!! I can't believe this is the first series she has wrote!!
NEW MOON is the much-anticipated sequel to last year's exceptional vampire romance, TWILIGHT. When I first got my hands on a thick copy of TWILIGHT, I ended up losing sleep for a week until I finished it. Night after night I could not put down the gripping tale of 17-year-old Isabella Swan and the family of vampires who virtually adopt her - some more willingly than others.
With the thrill of TWILIGHT fresh in my mind, I eagerly plunged into NEW MOON. The story takes up several months after TWILIGHT ended. Bella has enjoyed a magical summer with her vampire love, Edward Cullen, but as she closes in on her eighteenth birthday, her own mortality weighs heavily on her. Edward will be eternally young and beautiful, while Bella is doomed to age like a normal human.
New Moon is the thrilling sequel to Stephenie Meyers first novel Twilight. It continues the love story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, but with an unexpected twist of course.
Bella never saw it coming, but when it happened, she completely broke down. She was barely living and functioning. Then Jacob came along, and a friendship develops. Jacob was no longer the awkward boy he was, and he provides Bella with a crutch to lean on. Even with Jacob around, Bella still couldnt get over the disaster in her life, and it didnt help that Jacob wished Bella was more than a friend to him.
Things start to spin out of control all starting with a certain vampire sister believing an untrue vision of Alices. And before she knows it, Bella is racing off to Italy to save the person who caused her so much pain over the last several months.
Again, I would highly recommend this to any fans of vampire romances that havent already started this series. It is a fantastic story, and it never gets disappointing. This is another one of my favorites.
I'm the kind of person who doesn't cry durring movies or books, but when Edward left and I saw what was happening to Bella, I WAS crying! If you've read the first one you'll definately cry too! Amazing book as usual, Stephenie Meyer, you ROCK, best author ever!!! Please don't get mad at Edwaard he was just doing what he thought was right, when I read it I was calling him stupid, sorry Edward, but when he came home I was no longer mad, listen to me, I sound like I'm dating him, seriously, it feels like you're Bella, that's how good Stephenie Meyer writes!
Bella and Edward are back, but this time, everything isn't alright between the two. Edward, believing that Bella would be better off without him, leaves. Bella goes through months of depression until Jacob, a family friend, comes to her rescue. However, he too has a secret that is out of the ordinary -- he is a werewolf. At one point, Bella risks her life to save Edward from a terrible fate. Another awesome book by Stephenie Meyer.
First of all, THIS BOOK IS FREAKIN' AWESOME(parden my language). Bella turns 18, get's attacked by Jasper, which all leads to the big part, Eward leaves Bella. YEESH DUDE! I MEAN, COOOME ON! Anyway, back to the big part, Bella finds out that Jacob Black is a were-wolf while Edward is gone and finds out all of the traits you inherate when becoming a were-wolf, you gain super speed, super strength, and kind of an ability to read each other's thoughts. COOL HUH? Well anyway, Bella gets a motorcycle and has Jacob repair it and teach her how to ride it. Then later on in the book Bella tries to kill herself by cliff diving off the top o this huge cliff and Jacob ends up saving her. Edward thinks that she is dead and goes to the Volturi, the oldest vampires in the world, and tries to get himself killed, but Bella shows up with Alice at the last minute and stops Edward from getting himself killed. Bella ends up making a deal with Carlisle. The deal is that after she graduates, he will turn her into a vampire, and that basically ends the book. Can't wait to read Eclipse. Enjoy!
Be prepared to lose yourself for,when you read this book...you are no longer you but you are Bella. You will feel Bella's longings and unfulfilled desire for Edward and the resultant anguish of Edward's abandonment. But, don't get discouraged you will also experience Bella's return from the depths of despair. Experience a love that never dies!
One of the best books I've ever read. I cannot wait to start eclipse, terribly excited.
One of the best parts of this book is the entire excitement. Yes, some parts get a little slow (particularly because of personal choice, I would rather not have Bella do anything with Jake), but it is a complete thrill. I'd highly recommend this book, after you've read Twilight first of course, simply because it's phenomenal, full of darkness, love, and laughter at irony.
