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.

If my thoughts on the film were any warning, I should've known I wouldn't like this book nearly as much as the first book. I struggle to get through the film, so I'm genuinely not sure how I managed to read this entire book - it took awhile, but I eventually got there. This one moved slow, like ridiculously slow. I lost focus pretty often trying to get through this one.

For a while, I did sympathize with Bella, until Jake was brought into the picture. She basically used him to see and hear Edward again; I'm not entirely sure why this bothered me so much, but it did. I'm not a huge fan on Jacob, but when he first shows up in this book, he's actually tolerable and I felt bad for him.

There was a lot of focus on Jacob and Bella and Edward, so I would always momentarily forget that the storyline is supposed to be about Victoria. The love-triangle drama is a bit overwhelming at times, but it's easy to get sucked up into it.

Things started picking up when Alice shows up, so I got lost in the book for a while, but it didn't really make anything better. The ending was... something? Jacob and Edward truly do get on my nerves sometimes. So far, this is definitely my least favorite of the series. ( )

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.

Epigraph
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.
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.
