Book Review: Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

This is the third of four books in the Twilight Series.

I had heard that New Moon (the second in this series) was not good and that it would get better. Quite honestly, I found this one just as annoying.

Okay, maybe not as much as New Moon because Edward appears more in Eclipse (constantly, actually) but GOD! Bella was even MORE irritating in Eclipse than in New Moon.

She whined about everything: I have to see Jacob, I love Edward, Jacob's my best friend, Edward is the love of my life, I hate shopping, I have to go everywhere you go, I need to know what's going on, I don't want to get married, make me a vampire, WAHHHHHH!!

What did anyone see in this whiney douche bag??? Seriously? She is so fricking immature and does not deserve the friendship, nor the love, of ANY of these people. Er, um, vampires and werewolves.

And yet? Everyone is enamored with this girl. I was so, so, so sick of her. I could not stop rolling my eyes at every thing she said or did. "I have to go to La Push." I have to absolutely go to fucking La Push to see my best friend EVER IN THE WHOLE GOD-DAMN WORLD, and by golly, no one can tell me otherwise because I am a ding-dong.

That's how I started reading anything about Bella:
I can't marry you Edward because I am a stupid teenager that acted like a zombie when you left me but now that you are here and forsaking all others just for me - and screwing up your vampire lifestyle - I am going to continue to whine about how I don't deserve you and I shouldn't hurt you anymore, but I will because you can't tell me to not see Jacob and just because you've been around for 100 years and find the idea of marriage a wonderful thing and it's a dream for you to do, I won't do it willingly because it's just, you know, like, OH-MY-GOD, so LAME-OH...

What a fricking ditz. Edward and Alice could really do so much better...

Other than the whiney ass douche, the book was decent. Okay, Jacob was irritating too. So cocky and just oblivious, until, well, surprise! Bella actually finds that she is in love with him too. I really hated to read that, BTW.

But it was great to get insight into Rosalie...and the truce between vampires and werewolves. I've already started on the last and it's improved IMMENSELY. But so far, nothing compares to the first love, Edward and Twilight...

  1. I know how you feel. I felt similarly about Bella's attitude. I liked the 3rd book better than the 2nd, but there was definitely too much whining. But just hang on, the 4th book is much better, and i think you'll love it. It looks like you'll finish by next Wednesday!
