- By Stephenie Meyer
(Review on request by Smita )
This was the first Twilight book I read [ I had watched the first part as movie and read it after I was done with the whole series ] And i liked the fact that the book was written in Bella's POV. I mean it could have been from a third party narration but Bella's narration seems so much more personal. And that is one of the reson you feel the book so close. From her heart breaking sadness for Edward's absence , her time with Jacob, her crazy ways to "feel" Edward around her. I was totally drawn into the book.
And Jacob ..Oh God ! He and his friends were such a wonderful addition to the story as much to Bella's life. you feel as much for him as you want Bella and Edward to be together. He actually did not make me miss the Cullens for long time.
And the end was not what I was expecting. Its the extent to which Edward can go for Bella. And isn't that some thing we all dream of ?? A dangerous edge to the connection !
Twilight fans .. you will love this one too ..
Shoot, I muttered when the paper sliced my finger; I pulled it out to examine the damage. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut.It all happened very quickly then.Edward threw himself at me, flinging me back across the table...I tumbled down to the floor by the piano, with my arms thrown out instinctively to catch my fall, into the jagged shards of glass. I felt the searing, stinging pain that ran from my wrist to the crease inside my elbow. Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm-into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.
Legions of readers entranced by Twilight are hungry for more and they won't be disappointed. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural twist. The "star-crossed" lovers theme continues as Bella and Edward find themselves facing new obstacles, including a devastating separation, the mysterious appearance of dangerous wolves roaming the forest in Forks, a terrifying threat of revenge from a female vampire and a deliciously sinister encounter with Italy's reigning royal family of vampires, the Volturi. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.
PS : Trust me when I say , you will like Jacob more than Edward in the movie if not the book. Have a look ;)
And this was another book cover designed after the movie release ..
I actually liked it ..
