Amy--I get what you are saying completely. I read the first one and thought it was just okay.....I really didn't get what all the hoopla was all about. Definitely better than the crappy movie though....OMG, that really sucked. I went ahead and read New Moon and REALLY liked it much, much better than Twilight. I'm now reading Eclipse (it took freaking forever to get here!) and am in the beginning, so I can't comment too much except to say that it's STILL better than the first one. I also love Jacob.......it was New Moon that sealed the deal with my Jacob love (probably since Edward was MIA for most of the book.....lol). I just wish that Jacob and Edward didn't hate each other so much. Bella needs both of them and they need to realize that fact.amy wrote:OK, In my defense I said that I thought the FIRST book was sophomoric, AND IT WAS! I am now finished with the second and I don't know if she found her voice or what, but this book was much better than the first! I have to say that I had to suspend some disbelief at the turns the story took, but I have to do that with most books and take no notice of it.
I was not suggesting that anyone who read it was lacking in ANY way, whatsoever. I like this series and am now about to go raid her bookshelf for the 3rd in the series. I'll get back later.
I do kind of love Jacob at this point. I think I get her attachment to Edward. I am just waiting to see how the next plays out.
