The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Book Review

It’s what you’ve been waiting for! Our review of Eclipse, the third novel in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. But first, a warning: You really want read Twilight and New Moon (in that order) first before reading Eclipse (or this review), because the author doesn’t spend too much time going into the things that happened in the first two books.


Vampire Tale

Eclipse carries on not long after New Moon left off. Bella’s high-school grad is coming up and she’ll soon be leaving Forks forever. While she should be thinking about college, Bella’s actually planning to join her boyfriend in his vampire existence, which means she won’t be able to return home, due to being dead and all. But just after graduation, dangerous vampires from Seattle come to Forks, throwing a MAJOR fork in Bella’s plans.


Love Story

That’s just one part of the story, though. Bella and Edward’s relationship is the real focus of the novel. Sorry – Bella, Edward and Jacob’s relationship. There’s a MAJOR love triangle in the plot>


Bella and Jacob have always been friends. At least they were, right up until Jacob became a werewolf. Then the “bad blood” between vampires and werewolves put a huge strain on their friendship. Plus, Jacob is in love with Bella, who is in love with Edward – you can see how things are gonna get a little hairy.


Soap Opera

At this point, Eclipse becomes sort of a soap opera. Bella has found her soul mate (Edward) but Jacob is the soul mate she should have/could have/would have had if Edward didn’t exist. She loves him too – but not as much as Edward. And even though Jacob knows that Bella loves Edward, he still tries to make her feel guilty that she can’t love him like he wants her to. We’re sorry, but when it comes to love, blackmail just isn’t cool!


Bottom Line

Eclipse is full of teen angst and drama, but it’s missing some of the magic that made Twilight stand out from the crowd of vampire romances available in bookstores today. But still, it’s a GREAT read and another solid book in the Twilight saga. This is romantic fantasy – enjoy it!

To me, it's just a feeling I have, I know if I respect someone when I talk to them. I kind of admire them, look up to them.  Hmm... that's not really how I think of respect. It seems a little bad to say, but there are plenty of people I respect that I do not admire.

We do the same thing as you guys haha! Mainly, we just burst crackers, but yeah there are family gatherings. :D  We buy gold too. c: It's a culture all over India.  And yeah, there is a difference in rituals and stuff, but it's because India is so diverse.  It's really not like that haha. People can be rude and decent, that has got nothing to do with where you live in the world. :3
