Review: New Moon (Spoiler Free)

New Moon New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I honestly think this one was so much better than Twilight. I do not have a review of Twilight up, nor do I plan on putting one up, but in comparison I feel like this was an improvement. I don't really know what the general opinion about this one is (not majorly a part of the fandom), but I do know that many people get annoyed with Bella in this one. People, she is annoying 24/7; however, I feel like her reactions in this book were described very acutely in a way that I feel like not many people can necessarily relate to or they are uncomfortable with, resulting in them degrading her character for it. For those who have read the book, you probably know what I'm talking about (more details later), and for those of you who haven't, it isn't bad, it's just honest and people don't like that honesty.
PLOT: Nothing major happens in the plot in this one--- I feel like it's more setup. Although, I really liked what was going on during the setup. It was exploratory of human nature and there were some really fun scenes.
CHARACTERS: Bella- Honey, grow up. You're not ten anymore. That being said, people say her actions and reactions are exaggerations, but you have to put in into perspective. It is a paranormal situation.... I think it's fairly safe to say non-normal reaction are the new normal. Edward- Get over yourself. Dumb***. Jacob- I fell in love with Jacob in this book. I don't ship them. I think they're better as friends. But I'd ship him with me .... :) Nobody else is a main player in this one I don't think.....
WORLD: I really liked how we got to hang out around La Push more. That was a really interesting development of where Bells lives and I feel like it filled in the picture more- it added some more colors to it. The Volturi I thought were really interesting. Especially Aro and Jane. It brought to the surface the dangers of vampires that was mentioned in Twilight, but we weren't really exposed to before. The whole thing with the Treaty is brought up too and we get some interesting info on the wolf-y ones as well. :)


Thanks for reading! :)
