Which one's better?
I like to think of New Moon as the transitional novel, a movement piece within the over-arching storyline. Would you agree?
It is my least favorite of all the books. In fact, it is the book that made me want to stop reading this series, but I stuck with it, and boy, did it pay off in the end!
I also like to think of it as the practical joke that trickster Stephenie Meyer is playing on us. I get what you're doing with this book, Ms. Meyer! Clever, very, very, clever! As Bella spirals downward into a state of depression, we readers are dragged down along with her, living the misery, trudging through chapters. The storyline even slows down. I really felt Bella's sadness.
What did you think?
