Eclipse

You may or may or may not have noticed that this book has been removed from my "book of the month" list and no review has been written. The thing is that I decided to quit reading Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer. Now I know that this is not going to go over well with several of my friends for they love this series, but to each his own... I loved Twilight, thought it was a great romantic novel. Then I was incredibly disappointed with the second book, New Moon (click here for those book reviews). But I decided to give the third book, Eclipse, a try to see if it could save the series' grace. A third of the way through I had to put it down to read some required reading, but was completely unable to pick the book up. As soon as I heard that extremely whiny voice of Bella's again it was like nails on a chalkboard, I can't stand it. The fact is I wouldn't enjoy my teen kids reading this book, if I had them, the fact that Meyer justifies dieing for your first love is beyond me. I know, I know, you'll all say that it's just a book, well it's not... people, especially teens, are very impressionable. I was in love during high school, thought he was the only one, but as the years went by it turned out that even though we loved each other we weren't right for each other... yet here we are promoting infatuation as a love worth dieing over. Anyways, it's just rubbed me completely wrong, so I'm done with it.
