As is often with books like New Moon it can’t quite reach the dizzying heights of wonderment that Twilight, it’s predecessor, was able to achieve.
I liked it and still found myself hooked and unable to put it down but somehow with Edward missing for a good three-quarters of the book it just wasn’t the same. I found myself pining nearly as much as Bella was for him to return. Jacob is a character that I didn’t warm to at all, at least in this book anyway. Maybe it was just because of the stark difference between him and Edward.
However it still qualifies as a great read in my eyes and left me gasping for more nonetheless.
