And into the third book I went. Yes I know I wasn't really fond of the firsttwo books but I had brought the entire series and I cannot not read them once I've brought them. Continuing on from the last book Bella is still unhealthily obsessed with Edward, our resident sparkling vampire, but not only that, now she's good friends with Jacob, a hunky werewolf who'd love a chance to date her. If only she'd give him the time of day.
In this instalment, danger lurks just around the corner which was what peeked my interest in the first place, cause we all know what's a vampire book without a little danger on the side? But after finishing, I was sorely disappointed with the character development, the plot and was slightly disturbed with where Bella and Edward's relationship was heading.
First off, Edward's character had no development at all and frankly speaking he just got boring with all his perfectness! There is such thing as too perfect, and Meyer's character Edward has reached it. This unhealthy relationship or fixation of Bella's has gone to new lengths. She seems to be able to throw her parents and friends away so easily without much thought, just to be with Edward for all of eternity. Seems to be ready to stomp on anything and everything that isn't Edward related and this includes Jacob too.
I thought that the magic - if there ever was any - wore off when the plot became too predictable to read. Even to a casual reader of the series I could see through the mysteries, if you could even call them that. There was too much unnecessary drama and some very over the top childish behaviour from Bella that dampened the book.
