Ok so this one the writing was a tad better than the first one.

LIAR



But Bella is still as annoying as ever!


Edward is nuts, especially the whole part about him wanting to commit suicide by the hands of the Volturi if anything happens to Bella. That is just NUTS! then the fact that Alice ”sees” Bella die so Edward goes to the extreme and goes to Italy.



I did enjoy getting to see more of Jasper he is a great character.



So now about Edward leaving, maybe he should’ve stay gone and Alice should’ve stuck to her own business instead of coming back to Forks. Jacob is a much better fit for Bella. Wait scratch that, Bella doesn’t deserve someone like Jacob.

Like I said this book is a tad better than the first but it still sucks the same

only 1/4 of this book was remotely interesting, and yet, i must complete the series.... ( )

I don't know why I read this.

These books frustrate me to no end, for obvious reasons. ( )

I think that the shaming that follows after enjoying a book in the Twilight Saga is what prevented me for so long from actually reading one. No, it's not the most extraordinary book in all of existence. However, I'm addicted and loving every second. I only wish I would have read the books sooner. ( )

I didn't enjoy this segment of the Twilight opus as much as the first one. Maybe it's because like all the growth novels I read, I enjoy reading about the people growing into their powers/knowledge/whatever, but not so much when they've grown. I'm not sure why that is, but eh...

At any rate, I feel like the crux of this novel is pretty simple and easy to relate to--at least for me. In middle/high school, I had several groups of friends who ranged from just being uncomfortable together to excessive loathing of the people in the other groups. I learned quickly who could hang out with who and what pairings were doomed to disaster.

Bella's problem is both a little more obvious and a little more dangerous, but it's still the same basic problem--the best (fantasy?)fiction takes human problems and looks at it through a different angle, a sharper focus, as it were.

Part of me is curious as to how Bella's going to handle the problem of vampires vs. werewolves, but at the same time, the character itself doesn't inspire me to care about her that much--maybe because she doesn't seem to care about herself. It's aggravating to me that she's basically done what young women are explicitly told NOT to do: define ourselves by our man. ( )

Less streamlined than Twilight yet just as exciting, New Moon will more than feed the bloodthirsty hankerings of fans of the first volume and leave them breathless for the third.
added by timspalding | editSchool Library Journal, Hillias J. Martin (Jul 13, 2009)
 
This best-selling sequel to “Twilight” — which introduced Edward, the world’s most gentlemanly 17-year-old vampire, and Bella, an ordinary teenager in Forks, Wash. — appropriately begins with an epigraph from “Romeo and Juliet”; love and death are once again entwined in their curiously absorbing romance.
 
Despite Bella's flat and obsessive personality, this tale of tortured demon lovers entices.

These violent delights

have violent ends and in their triumph die,

like fire and powder, which, as they kiss, consume.

Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene VI
Dedication
For my dad, Stephen Morgan —

No one has ever been given more loving and unconditional support than I have been given by you.

I love you, too.

I felt like I was trapped in one of those terrifying nightmares, the one where you have to run, run till your lungs burst, but you can't make your body move fast enough.

Book description
I knew we were both in mortal danger. Still, in that instant, I felt well. Whole. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin. It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect - not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place.

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

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316024961, Paperback)

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.
