The story: The third installment of Meyer’s vampire-romance series finds “heroine” Bella Swan anxious to become a vampire and live forever with handsome vampire Edward. Obstacles arise when Edward demands marriage and werewolf Jacob declares his love for Bella. Don’t forget the fact that Bella’s life is in danger…again.

Opinion: I’m not sure that this third book was necessary, but when you discover that there is money to make if you prolong the story then the quality has to step back and leave room for quantity.

There is really no character development, other than that we get to read notes that are sent back and forth between Bella and Jacob, which really belittles the characters. They are teenagers not kindergarten children. OK we get that you are hurt Jacob, she didn’t pick you, but did you ever think  that she would?

The fact that Bella is portrayed as this helpless and somewhat stupid girl who can’t take care of herself really sends out the wrong signal to all the young tweens who are diehard fans of this series. She always has to depend on others to save her and she only gets tough when she feels the need to protect her family is such a cliché.

I don’t think you would miss anything important if you skipped reading this book and went right on to read Breaking Dawn instead. This book does not add anything new to the story, in my opinion it’s simply a pocket filler for the author and the publishing company.

There is this Twilight frenzy going around. After the movie came out all the little tween girls (even adult women) started to whisper Edward’s name in their sleep. Just let me say this…Edward is mine! 😛

“About three things I was absolutely positive. First Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him- and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be- that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.”

And I’m sure about three things:

  1. I’m a sucker for romance, even the kind of romance that’s intended for teens.
  2. I will read all three remaining parts.
  3. I’m also unconditionally and irrevocably in love with Edward!
