   In this book I really feel that most of us who have had that one defining, usually traumatic, first love experience can connect with the emotion Bella is trying to express. I personally found it profoundly saddening and disturbingly identifiable in a beautiful way.      It was the first of the Twilight books that I read and I think that is why I was so sucked in.  I'm not sure that I would have been so involved if I'd started with Twilight.  …

New Moon is the second book in the Twilight series.  And coming off of Twilight, I was excited to read NM.  But the first half takes forever to get through, understandably to get through Bella's depression and her life without Edward.  However, it is very sleepy and could cause readers to quit reading all together.  If you can muster the strength to get through the beginning, the second half is more than worth the first half and will have you reading through the pages as …

    Despite the other reviews, this happens to be my favorite book in the twilight series. This is really Jacob's book. This book puts a lot of the puzzling and cliff hangers of twilight all together and sets up for the next two books. Seeing the deep passion of all characters in this book leave the readers heart broken for all involved because you know that someone is about to be crushed.          I love the involvement and character building …

After reading the first book in the Twilight series I was very excited to move on and read the next. However, I was very disappointed in this second book. I found it considerably boring to read chapter after chapter of how upset Bella was. I understand that she loved Edward, but it's not enjoyable for me to read about somone whose whole world has ended merely because a man stepped out of the picture. (Possible spoiler) When she met Jacob she started doing better and I found that slightly …

Warning: This review contains spoilers.        New Moon is the second book in the popular Twilight series.  Shortly after her disastrous eighteenth birthday party, Bella Swan's vampire boyfriend decides they're too different and his entire family packs up and leaves.  Without her boyfriend (Edward Cullen) and best friend (Alice Cullen), Bella falls into a deep depression and stays locked up in her room for several months.  When her father finally …

I enjoyed the Twilight series as a compelling and quick read, but this book dragged on and spent too much time on Bella and Jacob. Jacob lovers probably loved the book for that reason, but if you prefer Edward to Jacob or if you prefer reading about a Bella who isn't angsty, you will be sadly disappointed in this novel. It does build Bella and Jacob's character slightly, but as the whole series is focused on the love between Edward and Bella, this book does not fit.       …

my least favorite of the entire twilight saga. I really learn to dislike both Bella and Jacob in this book. and thats a dislike that leaves a bad tasted in my mouth for the rest of the books.

This one didn't feel as good as the first--too many people making bad decisions. But fewer longing looks into beautiful eyes.

i will say right off the bat that this is my least favorite book in the twilight saga. i found myself angry a lot while reading it. (if you havn't read the book and don't want to know what happens, stop reading here!) in the first few chapters edward decides that bella is so unsafe in his world that it would be better for her if he and his family leave and never return. so of course im mad at edward for leaving, for one because hes my favorite character, and for two because hes just hurting …

This is the second book in the Twilight saga, and if the first book was not enough to rope you in then this one will. The story is so romantic and I bet everybody wishes they have found a fellow like Edward to love them and care for them like the way that he cares so much for Bella. New Moon events occur in Forks Washington state and then also they go to Italy when Edward goes out to seek out the Volturi. New Moon's story is about when Edward come to the harsh conclusion that he must leave that …

Really horrible, poisonous messages about the nature of love and relationships.
review by . June 15, 2010
Being a Jacob Black fan, I found it very emotional, very heart-warming, and very realisitc. I enjoyed the plot. The starting was kind of slow, and I felt as though the plot repeated its self many times in the middle of the book, but by the ending the book was kicked into high-gear and all was very entertaining. I found myself sucked into the story and captured with Jacob's caring nature, and Bella's denial that Edward had actually left, and it was interesting to see how the plot developed, …

personally my least favorite book in the saga, still necessary in the progression of the story though. it dosen't lack its own action scenes.
review by . July 20, 2010
The second Twilight book is much darker than the first, and 75% of the book is actually very depressing, if a bit melodramatic. In some ways, this is very much the biggest chance the author took with the series, and it shows. From a writing standpoint, New Moon is probably the biggest departure from the Twilight formula. You'll either love it or hate it, but I'd say if you're over a certain age you're much less likely to enjoy it.      Give it a shot if you liked …

So even though I didn't really like the first book too much, I decided to give this one a shot too. I mean millions of people of all different ages can't be wrong can they? And I figured maybe after getting the first one under her belt, and with setting the bar so low to begin with, maybe Stephanie Meyer would not let this book be such a disappointment. Well apparently I was wrong, as this book not only underwhelms, it just leaves me scratching my head even further. I mean I'm 25, I …

A solid read and necessary for following the Twilight Saga but arguably the worst of the series
Quick Tip by . July 13, 2010
This book is a little more action then the first. A easy read.
Quick Tip by . July 13, 2010
Vampires are fun and cool, but this book is so is fascinated with the Borderline personality disorder that Bella has...sick if ya' ask me...give me murder and a case of this crap!
Quick Tip by . July 12, 2010
You have to give Meyer some credit. She really put me in the shoes of Bella. I was just as depressed as her while reading this. Unfortunately I don't read to become bored and depressed.

if anyone gets offended by this its for the wrong reasons. i am simply stating my opinion on this book and how it affected me. if you have an opinion of your own post a review and ill be happy to read yours. thank you. oh and if there are any spoilers, im sorry but dont read if you havent read the book already!      twilight, when this book came out it was instantly popularized by all the high school girls who dreamt this would happen to them. im guessing there opinions changed …

The Twilight Rant:  New Moon       Although Stephenie Meyer’s first book of the series, Twilight, sucked me in like a sponge and was what made me eagerly await the next installment of the Twilight series, I have to say that I was pretty disappointed with New Moon.  I know that many may disagree with this, while others may agree, but to me, the book dragged on in several parts.      The main parts of the book deal with Edward leaving Bella …
Quick Tip by . July 06, 2010
new moon would be the second favorite of the entire twilight series, mainly because edward isnt really in it. which is a refreshing change for everyone who get irritated of having to read about edward literally 24/7. though bella becomes annoyingly irrational in her search for edward(or her delusional version of him). but luckily jacob is there the save her every time. bella always seems to get herself into things and have to be saved.
