I do enjoy Meyer's writing style, which is easy to follow and makes for a quick read, but I don't like Bella in this book as much as I should. She's so needy and whiny, it's almost unbearable.

I thought the whole series was entertaining. Kept me interested

The most annoying of Stephanie Meyer's books, you just get through it to find out what happens in the story and to get on to Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, which are much better.

A good book to continue the saga, but is disappointing to Team Edward fans because of the lack of vampire mentions in the book.
Quick Tip by . June 14, 2010
An immature read with no substance.
review by . June 12, 2010
This book was my favorite of the whole twilight series. Im team jacob and this book is mostly about bella and jacob. The book is kinda calm in the middle but gets very suspenseful towards the end. I like the whole series of twilight. I would recommend it to anyone. I have read them, i know guys who have read them, my mom and sisters read it. Most, if not all of them liked it. Since this book is mostly bella and jacob, there is not much real action until near the end, then it speeds up alot. I dont …

What was your emotional reaction as you read? Why?   I was very bored with thsi book. Bella spends most of the book crying over Edward. It gets to be a lot of the same and it is not very exciting. The end of the book however, is exciting.     Who would you recommend this reading to and why?   I would recommend this book to people who liked Twilight and want to read the rest of the series.     Consider the setting.   The setting is mostly …

Started to read it. Couldn't finish it.

Twilight took things off with a bang.  Changing the mythos of the vampire and introducing us to the characters of Bella and her love, Edward.  New Moon, a sequel, introduces us to Bella's friend Jacob and introduces us to deeper themes of love that it presents pretty well for the most part, but still suffers from some of the pitfalls of the first book, though certainly not as heavily.     In New Moon, Bella is celebrating her eighteenth birthday.  She spends it …

Pros: The plot is far more involved than in the first book...     Cons: ...Bella's character is absolutely repulsive; the entire book is one big train-wreck.     The Bottom Line:  New Moon is one of the worst books in the series.  You'd be better off reading the cliff notes.     Unless you've been hiding under a rock somewhere, chances are you've heard about Stephenie Meyer's Twilight book series.  The four novels tell …

The follow-up to "Twilight" has its sweet and tender spots but overall there's a lot of aching and misery that surrounds Bella. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and as usual it left me craving more but overall I can't say there's one theme to it, a lot is going on and most of it revolves around Bella's new relationship with her new best friend Jacob Black, the tale spreads out and tries to deal with everything at once but is still very enjoyable and impossible to put down. An incident that foolishly …

So I don't have anything new to add to previous reviews, but I will say that I really liked this one! It was not quite as good as the first, but a wonderful continuation. Jacob became a more interesting, likable character. Bringing in more about La Push and the reservation was great to explore. I thought it was a little odd that all of the secondary characters, mostly Bella's school peers, just about dropped out of the story completely. But Alice's prominence in the story was joyful - a breath of …

Stephenie Meyer lit the publishing world on fire with her remarkable debut, Twilight, where we were introduced to Bella Swan and her vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen. After reading and loving every minute of Twilight I was anxious to dive into New Moon to see what awaited this unlikely couple.      New Moon shifts gears early on and it doesn't take long to figure out that this story is all about Bella and Jacob Black. Edward is an integral part of this story, but his character …

New Moon Book Cover
5Cclip_filelist.xml"> This is the second book in the Twilight Saga   There isn't much I can say about the plot that wouldn't give too much away.  Bella and her vampire boyfriend go through some changes and Bella's relationship with young Jacob Black becomes more important.  Changes are in store for everyone and the effects are devastating, heart warming and even magical.    I thought this second book was just as fantastic as the first, so many things happen and alter it's …

Okay. You caught me. I'm obsessed. Happy? This book did it. My loving wonderful husband ran out in a cold snap to get me the 3rd book because I found out I didn't have the 3rd one.    Okay, so this book was really good... I wish I could explain why I'm obsessed with these books. I'm usually not into this type of book much less ones that are so "over hyped", but these are great mindless easy reading fiction.    Well worth a read, great for an airplane, even …
review by . November 06, 2008
It's three days past finishing the first book of this saga and I'm done with number two. It still feels like a train wreck.    My suspension of disbelief is entirely strained to the point of breaking because the fantasy portion of these books barely holds water (okay, the first book was better, but the werewolf stuff in this book was frankly not that interesting at all...not for the characters, not for the reader).    While the first of this series has all …
review by . October 25, 2008
Not as good as Twilight, but the last third was pretty great. I'm an Edward girl, so I didn't like how much of this book focused on Jacob. I still can't wait for the next book.
review by . August 02, 2008
This is by far the best book of the entire series so far! Bella, being far too perfect in book one, is left behind by Edward and broke-hearted, making her much more likable. Her good friend Jacob is there to lend a shoulder and an ear and help put her heart back together.    Together Bella and Jacob begin a new reltionship based on fun, excitement, and danger. Every time Bella gets close to danger, she feels Edward's presence, causing her to do it more. All the while, leading …

When Bella falls and cuts herself at birthday party in her honor and Edward finds himself having to physically restrain his brother Jasper, he realizes that his involvement in her life has exposed her to all types of otherwordly horrors. The reality is that Bella is a human being with blood running …
review by . October 13, 2007
In 'Twilight' Stephenie Meyer showed us just how original and interesting the vampire story can be -- in 'New Moon' she does it again, but with werewolves.     'New Moon' continues the story Meyer began in 'Twilight' with Isabella Swan and Edward Cullen just really starting to explore the love they discovered in the first book...when Edward suddenly decides he needs to leave. He leaves Forks, and leaves Bella with little clue as to why he's gone and no hope that he will return. …
