Publisher's Summary

For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning.

Legions of readers entranced by the New York Times best-seller Twilight are hungry for the continuing story of star-crossed lovers Bella and Edward. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural spin. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

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

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Okay if you liked the first one."

    I read the series and liked it enough to want to listen too.
    Unfortunately the reader's voice annoyed me and by the second book so did the vapidity of the protagonist and the creepiness of her "love."
    Skip it. And if you do suffer through it, definitely don't get the next one--it gets worse.

    "read it for the exciting climax"

    Book 2 is really bland, long and kind of boring compared to the other books. I agree with other reviewers, if I was reading the book instead of listening, I would have skimmed over hundreds of pages. Bella wallows in her depression and brings you down with her. But the connection between her and Jacob and the rather exciting climax are crucial to the series story line. While I know that this series is intending for 13 year olds and I rolled my eyes often at Bella's insecurity, the obsession/love she has with Edward and the blatant Romeo and Juliet plot line, I still gobbled it up. These books are like donuts - you know there's no substance, but you just might eat the whole box anyway because it just tastes so darn good.

    "Excellent"

    Hands down this is one of the best audio books I have listened to. Llyana Kadushin is superb, her ability to use her voice to distinguish each individual character is phenomenal. You will not be disappointed, this is an excellent, well written story. I cannot tell you how many times I listened to this audio book.

    "Not the best in the series"

    I, like many other people who have posted, trudged through this book so that I could get onto the next. It was OK, I'm glad I was listening to it instead of reading the actual book...I could do other things while it was playing.

    Having said that, the last quarter of the book is awesome and totally redeeming. I'm working on the third book and I'm sure the second one will remain my least favorite. Its still an amazing series. I'm totally hooked.

    "Narrating an Audiobook - the Don'ts"

    Almost definitely, if you're reading New Moon, you're initiated to the Twilight series and you love it. Me too: the end of these books leaves a gaping vampire shaped hole in my heart and the hearts of millions. The reason I write this review is to make fun of the narrator. Come ON, narrator! I mean, really. This narration is so corny I couldn't have been more ashamed of my love for this hot teen vampire romance series if it were categorized as CHILDREN'S lit on Audible. Which it is.

    "This was painful"

    The author managed to turn Bella into a co-dependent, whiny, annoyingly stupid teenager, that can not handle life on her own. In the first book I thought of her as strong, smart, and with a good head on her shoulders, yeah she was a teen but she seemed like she knew herself and was someone another teenager could look up to. In this book she is just the opposite. I would never want my daughter to read this book. She is so over-dramatic and dense that it is painful to listen to. It has a few good moments but it must be a lead-in book to the next one. Nothing much happened in the book. At least not enough to have to listen to for over 14 hours. It could have been summed up in about 5hrs. I truly believe that the author could have kept Bella's strength and individualism and still portrayed the love story.

    "Fantastic Storytelling"

    Beautifully read by Ilyana Kadushin, this book kept me up way too late at night! I couldn't stop listening. The story is mesmerizing and Meyer's creative take on traditional monsters is refreshing and thought-provoking. Loved the Romeo and Juliet theme, and Meyer consistently surprises me with her realistic, intelligent, and complex relationships in this series. Way more than a 'romance', way more than 'young adult fiction'.
