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!

Then again, women couldn't own and manage land while married until 1718....and it wasn't national until around 1850. You should probably specify where, because the place where I live wasn't even colonized yet in 1718.  Providence of Pennsylvania. However most states didn't accept it until around 1840-50. Maryland had achieved statehood in 1788, but it took them until 1841 to legalize married women to own property, and even them they had no control over the property. This is the case for many states. Face it, early America treated women as property....she was right on that part. But that's all changed. I'm not denying it. I was merely suggesting that you should specify where. Of course, in all the dates you've listed so far, men were also to be bought and sold as property in the U.S. in the states that would become the Confederacy. I would say that their treatment as property was much harsher than that of women in many cases, but yes, of course both men and women have been treated as property by the law in the past, and still are in many places today.    American Slavery didn't discriminate between genders. And for women, it was the same for blacks and whites. Also, pinning slavery and the confederacy together? I thought you knew more about the topic. But that's another debate. I should have known using the confederacy as an example would resonate with you. Like you said, it's another topic, but I could also talk about the Pacific slave trade.
