Review: Eclipse

And so I find myself in Forks, again.

Eclipse is the third book of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, and she continues to write well.  Part of the success in sustaining the quality is that she does seem to be telling one story with several arcs to it.

Here in the third book, the consequences of Bella’s decisions and mistakes begin to catch up with her.  Edward and Jacob the werewolf are fleshed out some more, and the plot moves forward in both drama and melodrama. We also get some interesting lessons in the history of vampirism and learn the secret origins of more of the Cullen family.  Everyone’s world is changing as they see their prejudices challenged, and feel the future coming to meet them.

I don’t want to get bogged down in the details of plot, and the writing style is the same.  If you like Twilight, you’ll enjoy this.

Strongly recommended.
