I always have to skip the part where Bella is lying in the forest, it's too painful to read

Starting liking the series, but eventually lost interest. Not a great book for young teens, gets violent. But for more mature readers it may be interesting. Not a fan of gloomy/romance/fantasy.

Compared to Twilight, this book was terrible. It was boring and depressing more often than not. I read it through only because of all the page-time Jacob got. Bella is such a baby!

"That's when i heard the noise that must have wakened me in the first place. Something sharp scraped along the length of my window with a high-pitched squeal, like fingernails against my glass."
"I cowered into Jacob's side, my eyes scanning the forest for the other wereworlves. When they appeared, striding out from between the trees, they weren't what I was expecting. "
So are you going to be my Valentine? Since you didnt get me a fifty-cent box of candy, its the least you can do.
Jacob Black, New Moon, Chapter 9, p.202
"Jacob was simply a perpetually happy person, and he carried that happiness with him like an aura, sharing it with whoever was near him. Like an earthbound sun, whenever someone was within his gravitational pull, Jacob warmed them. It was natural, a part of who he was. No wonder I was so eager to see him."
"when the new moon comes never die, but when you fly inside an airplane never die.i love you and you love me too,don't forsake me".

This book has it's up and downs like all books and then it comes back up. So don't stop reading it because of that!
In this book, Bella Swan is having a "horrifying" birthday party until she gets a paper cut.

after edward leaves bella for "the Best" bella goes into deppression. shes always having nightmares and is always blank faced. but then jacob comes up to save her from her grave. bella feels better, but not fixed. then something in jacob changes...
The book begins with seeing Bella become very comfortable with Edward and his family. Bella is given a birthday party and accidentally gets a paper cut. This leads to a tense moment when Jasper cannot contain himself and makes a leap for Bella. Edward is forced to protect her but ends up throwing her across the room, this makes it all to clear that keeping Bella close to the family puts her at risk. Edward begins to withdraw himself emotionally in order to leave her.
Naturally, Bella's grief is heartwrenching to read. Any girl who has felt the pain of lost or unrequited love will shed a few tears during this chapter. It is hard to get over being furious at Edward's behavior at the begining of the book, but this simply shows you how easy it is to get pulled into almost believing these characters are real.
Bella becomes seriously withdrawn from the world after his departure and considering their strange and magical relationship, this is to be expected. Bella begins to hear Edward's voice warning her when she puts herself in harm's way and in this way Bella begins to court danger to hear Edwards voice.
Jacob, becomes a very close friend of Bella's and helps her through her depression. His character takes the place of Edward and he becomes a major player in this story. He is also the complete opposite of Edward's sophisticated, wordly one. Jacob is lovable, akward, attractive (in a regular way) and warm-blooded. His story is one of interest and I don't believe any reader who has already read Twilight, will be surprised at the turn of events in which Jacob is involved.
