119 - Eclipse; Stephenie Meyer
Book 3 - Twilight Series - In this sequel to Twilight and New Moon,
High school graduation looms for Bella, and conventional worries over college applications vie with her plans for immortality and marriage to a vampire classmate, Edward Cullen.
Although I enjoyed this book, it did not seem to have as much intensity as the other two books; it began much too slow. The author has created a love triangle, and it will be interesting to see how she resolves Bella's love for Edward & Jacob in the next book. As a reader you also also get a deeper look into the life of werewolves with legends and tales passed down through generations on how this supernatural way of life came to be. I enjoyed the symbolism of Edward being the moon --cold and hard, and Jacob being the sun --warm and comforting.
If you enjoy the intense feelings Bella has for Edward, and her desire to dwell with him eternally, and, can also appreciate her strange need to connect with Jacob, then you should not be disappointed with this novel. I look forward to reading --Breaking Dawn soon.
