“Eclipse” continues the exciting story of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen by adding Jacob Black as a love interest, with both vying for her attention. Despite her feelings towards Edward, Jacob is sure she’ll choose him while Edward is determined to step away if that is her desire. Bella is unable to make a decision, as she loves both of them, but will have to make a choice whether she likes it or not. In the meantime, the Cullens and werewolves from La Push are forced to team up to try and stop an army of newborns who have one goal in mind – to kill Bella.

It’s easy for readers to split into Jacob vs. Edward camps, as each have redeeming factors. On the plus side Jacob is tall, dark haired, muscled, handsome, very fast, generates extremely warm body heat, understands Bella, and would do anything for her. On the negative side he’s at least 2 years younger, is a bit immature, and can change too quickly into a werewolf (especially when angry), which could be dangerous to Bella.

Edward’s positives points are that he’s tall, lighter haired than Jacob, chiseled and incredibly handsome, has mesmerizing eyes and breath, is very fast, has a velvety speaking voice, understands Bella, and would do anything for her. On the negative side he’s extremely cold, as hard as marble, is so strong he could accidentally crush Bella if he’s not careful, and regularly needs to hunt for blood since he is a vampire.

There are many instances where Jacob and Edward clash, including some humorous ones and, when you’re done, you’ll have to decide. Who would you choose? I like Jacob, but find myself in the Edward camp. His gentleness, protectiveness and incredible love for Bella are too hard to resist.

Meanwhile I’m still annoyed at Bella, as she continues to find too many ridiculous reasons to be insecure around Edward, keeps getting in his way, and generally gets on my nerves.

Recommended for 14 and older.

I still say Poor Jacob! It's not that I don't like Edward, I just feel bad for Jake! ( )
  shaunesay | Jun 21, 2017 |
Ad una prima lettura mi ha lasciata perplessa la facilità con cui Bella riusciva a ferire chi gli stava intorno. Infantile, capricciosa ... ecco il mio pensiero.
Poi l'ho riletto ed ho capito che in realtà è il più bello di tre pubblicati.
Non è facile avere a che fare con essere perfetti quando si è umani e perfetti non si è.
Non è impossibile amare due persone mentre è difficile capire a chi si può rinunciare per sopravvivere... Edward andando via ha aperto una ferita che Jacob ha curato era inevitabile che sarebbe rimasto nel suo cuore... purtroppo gli errori si pagano e Edward lo sta facendo.
Anche se sinceramente la 'calma immortale' mi ha innervosita... troppo facile lasciare ch gli altri decidano anche per te e nascondersi dietro ad un "Se non fossi esistito lui sarebbe stata la tua anima gemella".... ( )

I kind of love this one, despite Bella being at her worst. It's nice to see her relationship with Edward mature, and it's fun to see the vampires and werewolves working together. Not a perfect book by any means, but still the best in the series, in my opinion. ( )

Not bad. Better now that Edward was back. Still annoyed with the wolves. ( )

Ask any high school girl: boys can be a pain. Fall for one who seems appealing, and he turns out to be a monster. One moment he acts like you don’t exist, the next, he drives you crazy by playing it cool — while his brothers circle you with hungry eyes. If you take a break to cut the tension, and hang out “just friends”-style with a younger guy who’s puppy-dogging you, what happens? Wouldn’t you know, he turns out to be a nightmare too.

Epigraph
Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.


- Robert Frost
Dedication
To my husband, Pancho,
for your patience, love, friendship, humor,
and willingness to eat out.

And also to my children, Gabe, Seth, and Eli,
for letting me experience the kind of love
that people freely die for.
