Don't miss the other titles in the Twilight Saga.

As with New Moon, I felt that this story was filler. Again, the relationship between Bella and Jacob seemed a stretch and contrived to cram a conflict down our throats. Oddly, I found the Seth character more believable and delightful than the Jacob character. Edward and Alice are their usual wonderful, interesting, and colorful selves while Bella -- well she could be anybody. She is so not spectacular. The only interesting thing about her is the fact that Edward digs her and since he digs her -- we as fans, get to spend time with him.
I have worked in information Technology for 25 years and have run my own small business for 23 years. I love books!
What a great book - it is wonderful to be able to escape into this world!
I found this book to be a fun listen because of Bella's developing relationship with Jacob. While I'm more of a fan of Edward's, I did like the more lighthearted and less obsessive side of Bella that comes to light in this book. It was a great set-up for the finale of the series, and showed Bella maturing and becoming more sure of herself, and what she wants. I was happy to hear the same narrator as the previous Twilight books, as her voice is a great addition to the story. I recommend it, and it's a pretty essential listen if you're moving through the series.
I am an adult and I normally don't have time to read....but these books are enthalling and keep you gripped the entire time. I felt like I was there with MS. Meyer's intense descriptions. Wonderfully written and definitely a "re-read" kind of book!
I'm so glad i listened to this. Its so well written, and i love the reader, she truly has the voice i had pictured Bella having. The subtle tone changes she uses to differentiate the characters is perfect, and i am able to understand who it is without problems. I can honestly say i can not WAIT for the next book to come out. I must say though.. I couldn't STAND listening to that guy talk in the beginning and at the end.. Agh.. its like he doesn't know how to talk or something.. or isn't comfortable with his own voice. It reminds me of a really large guy trying to dance and doesn't know how and his legs are getting all goofed up.
Really, I have listened to this book at least 7 times! Eclipse is so much fun, it's the only story I can't delete from my ipod! I will say that Bella begging Edward to have sex with her was beyond ridiculous! If you can shut your ears to that though, you're in for a treat.
