Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

Legions of readers entranced by the New York Times bestseller Twilight are hungry for more, and they won't be disappointed by this gripping sequel. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural twist. Passionate, riveting, and deeply moving, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

Review:

"Fans of Meyer's debut novel, Twilight, may be disappointed in this second book in a planned trilogy. It begins with a bang, on Bella's 18th birthday, when Edward Cullen sweeps her off to his unorthodox family home (in the first book readers learn that the Cullens are vampires who hunt animals rather than humans) for a birthday celebration. But when Bella unwraps a gift and gets a paper cut, her drops of blood set off a chaos that culminates in the Cullens leaving town. Edward exits on page 73, and does not reappear for nearly 400 pages, except for his voice in Bella's head when she embarks on dangerous adventures, such as motorcycle riding and cliff diving. Instead, this book focuses on Jake, her friend from La Push, who has some unusual traits of his own. A Quileute legend that he confides in Bella in the first book comes to the fore here (and ties in with the title), and Bella is tracked down by the 'bad' vampires from the first book, who seek revenge for Edward's murder of their friend James. Long stretches in the book may make readers feel as if they're treading water, but the pace quickens when Alice Cullen sees a vision of Bella cliff diving and mistakes it for suicide. Edward then heads to the all-powerful Volturi vampires in Italy, seeking his own death. Will Bella get to Italy in time to save Edward? Will she remain human? Meyer answers the first question but leaves the second for the third novel. Ages 12-up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Legions of readers entranced by Twilight are hungry for more and they won't be disappointed. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural twist. The "star-crossed" lovers theme continues as Bella and Edward find themselves facing new obstacles, including a devastating separation, the mysterious appearance of dangerous wolves roaming the forest in Forks, a terrifying threat of revenge from a female vampire and a deliciously sinister encounter with Italy's reigning royal family of vampires, the Volturi. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

I liked this book, but as with the first one I just don't care for Bella all that much. I know it's weird to say I like the book but I don't like the main character. But I don't. She's too wishy-washy and she just comes off as being an idiot sometimes. Another thing that bothers me with Bella in this book is that I remember being a teenager - I was never that deep and introspective. I can't honestly say that I have ever known anyone that had a similar thought process to Bella. So that's my major issue with this book (let me say that I did overcome this in the next book - but this isn't a review of the next book.)

I really was disappointed that there wasn't more Edward in this one. He doesn't think like a normal teenager either, but then again, he's not really a teenager. I think that gives him a pass. I also really liked Jacob in this one. I didn't feel like I got to know him in the first book - so despite the fact that Edward isn't in this one much having Jacob become a major part of the story helped. Jacob is like quite a few guys I know. He's going through a somewhat awkward phase, and I think all boys go through that at some point. I feel so bad for Jacob, because he just wants Bella to love him. He's a kid trying to deal with all this crap he's going through physically and then he's got Bella pulling him along giving him a false sense of hope.

I liked the story itself. It kept me entertained while I read. I liked that this book shows how strong Bella and Edward's love is. To love someone so much that you fear that you're bad for them and try to stay away. Maybe it's the hopeless romantic in me, but I think that's what draws me to this series. Then when Bella risks her life for Edward - it just all comes full circle. I think Stephenie Meyer is a pretty good author and I hope that even without the Twilight series she'll continue to write. I enjoyed reading this book, probably more than I should have :-)

There is adventure, romance, intrigue, and humor. It appeals to all ages. Non-readers have begun reading the series. It's an easy read, great escapism and of high moral standards.

What would you do if you loved a girl more than life itself, but you know and events conspire to convince you that she will die if you continue to stay near her? You leave.

And Meyer explores the downward spirla Bella goes through wehn Edward leaves. As a romance novelist Meyer excels almost beyond belief. The prose still lacks in smoothness. The introduction of Jacob as a serious suitor provides a definite level of inevitable heartbreak, but he never seems a serious contender which makes him seem rather pathetic.

Jacob is left at loose ends which bothers me, but of course Bella and Edward end up back together ready for the next stage in their movement toward happily ever after and as I said, Meyer is the master of the romance novel.
