[Review] Eclipse


Eclipse is the third novel in Stephenie Meyer’s popular Twilight series. In this novel, there's a triangle love: Bella, Edward, Jacob. And This makes Bella confuse. Bella love them both, But she must choose one of them. Beside, Jacob and Edward are not in a good relationship because of their identity: Vampire and werewolf.

Comment: Wow! it's a great story. Edward and Bella's relationship is facing many obstacles, and they just keep together.Sweet, huh? Edward doesn't want to leave Bella for the second time, that's why he always said yes for everything Bella ask, even if it makes him hurt.
I haven't read the last novel of this series. And I can't wait to read the last novel >_

We already know how "great" people think the Twilight series are, so your "review" (given how short it is) isn't anything new. So many fangirls have already said the same thing, to be honest. :P

Ouch people. There are no rules against short reviews.

Glad to see you like book 3. Good luck with Breaking Dawn. I personally found it to be a bit of a let down. :(

Honestly, I think the ire and snark is less about the fact that it's a short review and more about the fact that it's a post about Twilight.

Shouldn't we be trying to encourage members to post? Instead of, you know, scaring them away...?

Anyway, glad you liked Eclipse. It was my favorite in the series, but that just may be for the Jacob/Bella makeout session. :P

I've never read any of the Twilight books and never will. But I'm glad that you are enjoying them, and thanks for posting!

I dislike Twilight, but I am happy you like them! It's good you posted. :)

I hate Twilight, but I hated this one a little more than the rest for some reason. Could barely get through it. I just felt like...nothing...really...happened. Internal musings about a loooooove triangle just didn't cut it for me. New Moon was slightly more tolerable to me because there was less Edward.

I will not even get into the fackery that went down in Breaking Dawn, LOL. Parts of it nearly made me hork though. Literally.

So keep a trashcan and some bottled water handy! Or something.

I liked this one better than New Moon, honestly, cause Bella's wangst in New Moon got kinda old. Plus, when I read New Moon the first time I was sort of going through a breakup and I was like *WAAAAAAAAAAAAH WRYYY*

But Breaking Dawn was pretty cool, you'll enjoy it! I'm rereading it now ;P

Eclipse was my favourite in the series. But I have a feeling that I enjoyed reading it for different reasons than the majority of the Twilight-enjoying world.

I made it through the first book, then abruptly stopped reading. I wanted to kill myself. Haha.

How awful is it that I read this book just a few months ago and cannot for the life of me remember anything that happened in it? Actually, now that I think about it, the only book from this series that stands out in my mind is Breaking Dawn, and not for good reasons...

But to each their own. (And, really, I can't criticize; I have a "Team Edward" t-shirt-- though mostly because my boyfriend's name is Edward.)

Oh, all right...since I just read it too, time for a preview of next month's very special "Admiral Naismith's Monthly Book post", featuring Twi-Hard III (The Ickening):

Time had not made me immune to the perfection of his face, and I was sure that i would never take any aspect of him for granted. My eyes traced over his pale white features: the hard square of his jaw, the softer curve of his full lips, twisted up into a smile now, the straight line of his nose, the sharp angle of his cheekbones, the smooth marble span of his forehead, partially obscured by a tangle of rain-darkened bronze hair...
I saved his eyes for last, knowing that when I looked into them I was likely to lose my train of thought. They were wide, warm with liquid gold, and framed by a thick fringe of black lashes. Staring into his eyes always made me feel extraordinary, sort of like my bones were turning spongey. I was also a little lightheaded, but that could have been because I’d forgotten to keep breathing. Again.
It was a face any male model in the world would trade his soul for. Of course, that might be the asking price: one soul.

Isn’t Edward dreamy? Isn’t he wonderful? Wouldn’t any girl just swoon over the chance to be with a dark, brooding, obsessive boyfriend who stares into her window at night and who disables her car so she can't go see any other friends?

I’m disappointed. After the vampires and werewolves of the earlier books, I wanted zombies this time. Finally, the one kind of monster that would never, ever find Bella to be an irresistibly tempting morsel (Hey, Edward: have you ever considered that just maybe the reason you can’t read Bella’s mind is that she doesn’t have one?? Just a thought). But no zombies.

However, I DID get one thing I asked for, in that, when I heard of Meyer’s mind-boggling claim to have written homages to great literature (she thinks the first two books have something in common with Pride and Prejudice and Romeo and Juliet, respectively), I thought a Wuthering Heights episode might be fun. Of course, neither Meyer nor I thought that one through. Although Edward is appropriately broody and vengeful, there is no way Jacob and his tribe of furries has anything in common with the feeble Linton clan; Edward's family is nice to him and he does not drive any of them to drink and gambling so that he can take their land; and Bella doesn't even end up on a foggy moor yelling for Edward at the top of her lungs. But other than that...

Oh, well. One more volume to go. I’d probably have stopped with book 1 but for The Redhead’s insistence on getting all four volumes from the library, so they were right here in my house; and because of the wonderful Sparkledammerung blog entries of “stoney321” , which show that the whole series is an analogy to Mormonism and that becoming a vampire is analagous to joining the LDS family of patriarchs! BAHAHAHAHA I’d always suspected as much.

Just read it. It’s so wonderfully snarky, it almost makes the books tolerable: http://stoney321.livejournal.com/317176.html

I salute your fortitude...
I keep trying and trying to make myself pick them up, for the promise of Emergency Sparkle Vampire C-Section in book four.

But I can't do it. I barely managed to get through the first one; four pages from the second put me in a coma for a week.

I do love stoney321's analysis. Also, "sparkledammerung" is unmitigated genius.

This was my favourite of the series too. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. =)

It's been a while since I read them, but I enjoyed them when I did.

I believe her writing style lacks a certain something to be desired, but the plot, in and of itself, is engaging, all the same.
I picked up the book at the recommendation of my roommate and, instantly, scoffed at the thought of reading it. But, sure enough, within the next two days, I had all three of the (available) books read.
It sucked me in without permission..

So, yes, I can see the appeal, despite the writing. :)
I haven't read the last one, myself. But I've heard it's quite interesting.
Happy reading!
