"New Moon will more than feed the bloodthirsty hankerings of fans of the first volume and leave them breathless for the third." (School Library Journal)
"Bella's dismay at being ordinary (after all, she's only human) will strike a chord even among girls who have no desire to be immortal, and like the vampires who watch Bella bleed with 'fevered eyes', teens will relish this new adventure and hunger for more." (Booklist)
Certainly there have been many vampire stories and novels in the past, and certainly a fair number of these have involved romance between a vampire and a young female. Usually the vampire imposes imminent danger in the romantic relationship. This story puts a different spin on this idea and mixes in some Indian legends that spring to life and complicate the scenario. Bella is the young (18yr. old) female and Edward is her young vampire lover. This is a quick but compelling read.
Well I am definitely past my teens, but I simply could not put this book down. Great plot, kept me involved the entire time, I even loved the reader, I'm already through book 2 and ready for 3!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the first audio book in this series - Twilight. But for whatever reason the narrator decided to affect accents while reading this book, and I found it simply unlistenable. I ended up purchasing the book instead and very much enjoyed the story - but stay away from the audiobook unless you're looking for a good laugh at how ridiculous the narrator is!
Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.
Great book, definently a good listen
i couldn't believe that this could be so addictive. I haven't stopped listening to this series since I started it. I am very inpatient for the last title to come out!
Wow! I could really feel Bella's pain. This was a very emotional sequel to Twilight. (I must say that I am not on team Jacob though... I love Edward!) I have finished all three of the four books (Book one is Twilight and book three is Eclipse... listen to them in order) and am counting down the hours until Breaking Dawn! At 42, I found that this series isn't just for teens/young adults.
the book was great love that they use the same voices in the other books also edward and bella and jacob are so cute cant wait for next book
