I actually enjoyed this book better than Twilight primarily due to the lack of gushy teen romance. Although I have to say the constant references to the "hole in her chest" grew old very fast. A bit of editing would have been appreciated too; the story went on for way too many pages.

However, the books are still strangely addictive and for that alone gets 3 stars from me.

P.S. I also like Jacob better than Edward - Jacob even seems somewhat normal unlike the "perfect" Edward! ( )

Yet another horror. In this one, Bella nearly gets herself killed at her eighteenth birthday party when she gets a papercut and the newest member of the clan, Jasper, smells her and tries to attack her. I kind of wish he succeeded. No, not kind of. This leads Edward to break off his relationship with Bella, saying he's no good for her. Of course, that's what he's been saying in Twilight, but he never left her then, even when she nearly died from a vampire attack at the end. Not only that, but if he can't stay away from her, why does he manage for several months?

Even more worrying is Bella's mental state in this book. If I were Charlie, I'd get my daughter some help if she behaved the way Bella does in this book. What does she do? Well, after the initial breakup, she first goes to look for him stupidly (and ignoring the fact that he's a vampire with super speed and thus can outrun her) and failing that, she curls up into a ball and it takes a rescue team to find her when Charlie gets worried. It gets worse from there on out, because she falls into a deep depression and turns into a sort of zombie. Even more worrisome, after several months, she goes out with some friends, trying to break out of her depression when Charlie threatens to send her to Florida to live with her mother, Renee. (Who, according to Bella, is apparently incapable of taking care of herself and needs to be taken care of; how on earth is she supposed to take care of a mentally unstable teenager?) So then Bella becomes an adrenaline junkie, because when she does something dangerous, she hears Edward's voice. Basically, when she's reckless, she hallucinates, which gives more evidence to the Bella's sanity is slowly deteriorating theory.

So yeah, this sucks. ( )

My final foray into the Twilight universe.

This book sucked. Bella was a completely selfish, self-centered, suicidal, insecure, self-lying bitch. If this is the type of character teen girls want to read about and emulate, then we are all doomed.

But maybe we'll get lucky and all those stupid types will just off themselves and do the world a favor. Maybe that is actually Meyer's sinister secret plan. A kind of Literary Eugenics Master Plan? LEMP for short... ( )

I definitely enjoyed this one more the second read through. ( )

In the part two book of the Twilight Series, New Moon shows Bella and Edward's love threatened in a new way by one of his own family members. Edward then rethinks if he is good for Bella and ultimately decides to leave and let her have a normal life. Having decided all of this without Bella's input she is devastated when he breaks up with her, and then his whole family moves. This sudden loss sends her into a deep depression shown by the book pages just saying the names of the months as they go by without Edward. Bella is then made to snap out of her comatose behavior by her father. She then gets closer to a family friend and through adrenaline filled activities learns that she can "see" Edward or at least an apparition of him. Through these adventures, Edward's psychic sister unknowingly gives Edward information leading him to think Bella has committed suicide. He in turn goes to his vampire law makes and requests to be killed. In an effort to check on Bella's family, Edward's sister finds her alive, and the duo rush to save Edward from committing suicide by showing himself to humans. After some reasoning with the law makers all turns out well and the three make it home safely.

Personal Reaction:
I think this book has a great message of how we all experience heartbreak and loss. I have personally been through great heartbreak and in that time found myself rereading this book several times. This would also be a good book for 7th through 12th grades because in this time the experience their first loves and their first heartbreaks and the book will touch on those emotions and make them feel validated.

Classroom Extensions:
1. I would want to have an open discussion in class about suicide, signs of it for my students to recognize it, and ways to get help or help others they feel might be calling for help.
2. I would want my students to write about a serious loss they have had, whether it is a loved one, boyfriend/girlfriend, or pet.

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.

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
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.
First words
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.
Times passes. Even when it seems impossible.

Book description
Aus der Amazon.de-Redaktion
Eines Nachts hat Bella Swan einen schrecklichen Albtraum, in dem ihre bereits verstorbene Großmutter eine nicht unbedeutende Rolle zu spielen scheint. Bella betrachtet das zerknitterte, vom Alter gezeichnete Gesicht, das ihr da gegenüber getreten ist -- als plötzlich ihre große Liebe Edward auf der Bildfläche erscheint, schön und strahlend wie immer. Da erkennt Bella, dass es gar nicht ihre Großmutter ist, der sie in die von Falten umgebenen Augen blickt. Es ist ihr eigenes, um Jahrzehnte gealtertes Spiegelbild, dem sie in diesem plötzlichen Akt der Erkenntnis schutzlos ausgeliefert ist. Der ewig junge Edward aber tritt auf sie zu, drückt ihr seine eiskalten, aber perfekten Lippen auf die runzeligen Wangen, und flüstert: „Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag“.

Ganz so schlimm wie im Albtraum ist es nicht im wahren Leben von Bella Swan in Stephenie Meyers Roman Bis(s) zur Mittagsstunde. Aber ein wenig zeigt er doch die abgrundtiefen Ängste der Ich-Erzählerin. Zwar ist die Protagonistin „offiziell erst 18 Jahre alt“. Aber ihre große Liebe Edward, der sie mit völliger Hingabe auf ewig ergeben ist, wird auch in Zukunft gar nicht altern. Edward ist ein Vampir der verführerischsten Sorte, und Bella mag sich gar nicht überlegen, was geschieht, wenn sie an der Seite dieses Dorian Gray der Unterwelt langsam aber sicher als unabwendbare Spur der Zeit ihre Schönheit verliert. Dann plötzlich ist Bella von Edward verlassen. Warum nur lässt er sie im Stich? Was steckt hinter seinem Weggang? In Bis(s) zur Mittagsstunde muss Bella wichtige Entscheidungen treffen. Aber sie ist bereit, für ihre ungewöhnliche Liebe zu kämpfen. Dabei setzt sie für ihre unbezwingbare Leidenschaft und Liebe sogar die ein oder andere Freundschaft aufs Spiel...

Nach Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen ist Bis(s) zur Mittagsstunde der zweite Roman um Bella und Edward. Und es ist sicher nicht der letzte. Denn es gibt ja noch weitere Tageszeiten, zu denen man gebissen werden kann. Und das ist ein Glück, weil Meyer etwas geschafft hat, was sonst nur wenigen Autorinnen und Autoren gelingt: dem guten alten Vampir-Mythos nämlich neue Seiten abzugewinnen -- und damit neues Leben einzuhauchen. -- Isa Gerck -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .
Ein kleiner, aber blutiger Zwischenfall an ihrem achtzehnten Geburtstag wird Bella fast zum Verhängnis. Edward sieht keinen anderen Ausweg: Er muss sie verlassen. Für immer. Bella ist verzweifelt, einzig die Freundschaft zu Jacob hält sie am Leben. Da erfährt Bella, dass Edward in höchster Gefahr schwebt. Und sein Schicksal liegt in ihren Händen. Sie muss zu ihm, rechtzeitig, bis zur Mittagsstunde … Nach »Biss zum Morgengrauen« ein weiterer Bestseller um Bella und Edward, der den Leser bis zur letzten Seite fesselt. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe:

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.

When the Cullens, including her beloved Edward, leave Forks rather than risk revealing that they are vampires, it is almost too much for eighteen-year-old Bella to bear, but she finds solace in her friend Jacob until he is drawn into a "cult" and changes in terrible ways.… (more)
