Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer ~ Review ~

★★★★ stars

This is the first book I co428263mpleted this month. It is the number three out of four books in the Twilight series. I expected this book to be a little less great than the last one, but I was pleasantly surprised that, so far, this is my favourite book in the series.

I gave it four stars because Bella finally makes a decision and also because of Jacob. I liked that Bella finally told Jacob who she really wanted. All this time she had been leading Jacob on and now he knows and can start to move on. There are some problems in which the dialogue gets super awkward and some sentences are just not working. So that’s why it didn’t get five stars. Also, I found a typo! Like a really big, obvious one.

I really liked the cover of this book. I was really pretty and I used a red ribbon as a bookmark and it all went together, which made me happy. I give the cover ★★★★ stars!

In this book, Bella is a little better, although I still have doubts as she seems to be too willing to leave her whole family. I am really glad she finally made a decision, even though in e process she broke my baby’s (Jacob Black’s) heart. It makes her a lot more appealing as a character. I also didn’t like that it was so hard for her to accept that she was in love with Jacob, but I also understood why she did that.

Edward was more likeable in this book as well. He was patronizingly kind to Jacob and was too good for my liking. He acted so above all human emotion at some points, which really bothered me. I did like him more than in the last book at least.

Jacob. Oh, Jacob. My poor little baby Jacob. He tries so hard to show her that she loves him, all the while knowing that it probably won’t work out in the end. I really loved his character again, but his personality got a little too cocky for me. Some cockiness can be okay, but the way Stephenie Meyer wrote it was too much. The way Jacob kept switching back and forth between the nice guy and the overly – confident man was not to my liking.

I give the characters ★★★★ stars.

The plot was okay. It mostly centered around the love triangle with the action as a backdrop to keep the story going. Stephanie keeps returning to the same idea of Victoria chasing Bella. There hasn’t been anything new, really, in the way of the vampire world. I am hoping there will be something new in the next book in the way of the plot.

This is definitely not the best vampire book I’ve ever read, but it’s okay for a beginner book. The problem is that they take so long to read. I think it would’ve been nicer if they had been a bit more compacted.

Happy Reading!
