Readers captivated by Twilight and New Moon will eagerly devour Eclipse, the much anticipated third book in Stephenie Meyer's riveting vampire love saga.

As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob --- knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

Oh my god. This book pissed me the hell off. I even called Holly asking “WTF!”
If you want a real review, please see Holly and Mailyn. I’m going straight into my rant.

They are all stupid.

Bella- STUPID. Edward told her not to visit Jacob. He’s a young werewolf and dangerous. Since they are on the reservation, Edward can’t protect her if something happens or the treaty breaks. What does Bella do? She goes and visits Jacob.

She wants to spend eternity with Edward. Wants to be vampire really bad but does not want to get married to Edward. Why? She doesn’t want to be that girl who gets married right after high school. Please. You love him that much it shouldn’t matter what people think. She gags just thinking about engagement rings and planning her wedding.

She was in denial the entire book. Then she falls in love with Jacob. Even pictures a happily ever after with him.

Stupid.

Jacob- He soooo annoyed me throughout the book. I really liked him in Twilight and New Moon. Now he’s just a spoiled brat who is mad cause he can’t have his toy. Keeps insulting Edward in front of Bella. Forcefully kisses her. If it had been Edward who pulled that stunt, you bet Jacob would’ve been all over him.

That was another thing. He kept telling Bella Edward wasn’t human. WTF! You aren’t either! Hello werewolf!!!! Both of you are freaks!!!!!

Edward- He didn’t quite piss me off. But I just have to wonder, is Bella worth all the trouble? He was extremely patient. More than any other guy I know. Which Edward said he had years of building up patience but still……everyman has his breaking point.

Edwards just needs to dump Bella’s ass and be with a real woman. Maybe like… me?

I’m really disappointed in this book. At point, I just started skimming I was so mad. I really wished I stopped at Twilight. I had their HEA all pictured in my head. I honestly don’t know if I want to read the next book.

Grade: 2/5 cause I love Edward, otherwise: 1/5.
