Reviews of New Moon (2006)
I can't tell if this one is better or worse than Twilight.
Edward is shown as abusive by leaving Bella and causing her emotional pain. Remember, abuse in a relationship is both physical and emotional.
Bella believes that it was the end of the world when Edward left. She is a terrible rolemodel because of this. She sulks for 4 months until Jacob came along and constantly clings to him. Then she dumps him once Edward came back. She jumps of a cliff in order to hear Edward's voice that she was probably imagining. I don't know about you but I would have her in an mental institute in a flash.
Another thing, when Bella and Edward got back together. There was no fight about it! Bella just automatically forgives him for causing her so much pain which is absolutely ridiculous!
My rating falls below the negative for the purple prose writing and messages of this book.
(This review refers to the 2006 version titled “New Moon”)

This sequel is as good as its predecessor, "Twilight", though I wouldn't go as far as to say that it's better. The exhilaration that drove the romance in the first book is diminished slightly; it is exchanged for a wealth of characterization that is more convincing and significant than what was found in "Twilight". Once again I could hardly put this book down, and once again it delivered magnificent entertainment with each chapter. A must-read for everyone who liked the first novel!

Stephenie Meyer has left reader begging for more after they finished Twilight and New Moon is the perfect sequal! WARNING!! YOU MUST READ THIS TWICE TO GET THE FULL MEANING because most people skip 3/4 of the book. Ths is a wonderful book, packed FULL of suspension and romance; adventure and skill. A MUST-READ!!
