Eclipse -- Stephanie Meyer
I'm a little behind on giving my book previews for 2008. Eclipse was the first book I read of the new year. I agree with many others in the fact that I was sorely disappointed. I, unlike some of my friends, am an Edward fan. I am intrigued with him, and I kind of like the idea of the sexy vampire guy who is trying to give vampires a good name by not sucking blood out of people. Interesting new concept. And I liked it. And even though I felt that Jacob was a great guy -- let's face it, I think he had the upperhand on maturity most of the time, in the 3rd novel, he lost it. He became annoying immature, and I think we all can concur that Bella pretty much topped the cake on immaturity. I couldn't handle it. When performing of any kind, they say it's good to leave the audience wanting more. At the end of the book, I felt like things were missing. I wanted more because I felt like Stephanie Meyers didn't adequately wrap the story lines up to a sufficient conclusion. She still had a little more to tell, but I felt she just thought "That's about good for now. I'm tired of writing. I'll end it like this."
