Just finished Stephenie Meyer's Eclipse. A few things, on Good Reads, I only gave it four stars because I did like New Moon better, but Eclipse stirred a lot of emotion in me, at least the last chapter. I cried. I was brokenhearted. I realized I can't stand Bella. I don't think that reaction is the author's intention. I want to excuse her choices because she's only 18, but it's all wrong. I feel that some very important decisions are glossed over, I don't know if the author doesn't want to go that deep, if it's because these are young adult books, but I have do have some issues.
I'm pretty sure my friend Pam believes I have lost my mind because I called her ranting about some of the issues have with Eclipse, it's supposed to be a story, I get that but I am one of those readers that lives what she's reading. I want to be sucked into the story, I want to feel the heartache of the characters, I want to get in their heads and understand why they make the choices they make.
I don't want to spoil the book for anyone who hasn't read it yet but if you also have issues with some of the plot, please feel free to email me at gulfskye at aol dot com I would love to discuss my issues with anyone who wants to talk about the book.
I do agree with Suz that Jacob is way too good for Bella.
